By the way, the Steelers = plop. I know they're trotting out 2nd and 3rd stringers at RB but their only score was a freakin' safety for like 99% of the game against what should be one of the worst teams in football. They're better than this, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised if they finished dead last in their division (the Browns making Weeden throw 50+ times may screw that up, though).

agreed

 

Call me crazy, but imho the reason Cowher hasn't taken any jobs is he's laying in the weeds waiting for Pittsburgh to fire Tomlin. Cowher slides back in.

And not for nothing but HUGE clutch kick from Folk, who for reasons known only to them the Jets were trying to replace all summer.

 

I remember seeing a stat that he's only 60% in the cold weather as a kicker.

 

Folk is weird, he hasn't let us down yet but I'm always waiting for that other shoe to drop.

 

I just think they don't want him to get complacent. But there's no chance guys like Carpenter or a joke like Cundiff will ever beat him out

CRASHER was 100000% right about the Cowboy defense lol...so far they got him 19 fantasy points in the NJDevs league and STILL are dying in the fourth quarter :lol:

 

I have Peyton AND Victor Cruz on my other fantasy team and may STILL lose like 210-200...but at least Cruz is single-handedly giving me a chance tomorrow after Ridley and Roddy White dissapeared on me :P

lol at the Giants almost getting the onside kick. That would've been fun. 

 

That game was way too close for a team who turned over the ball as much as the Giants did...

Cruz contract killing the Gmen. Couldn't afford to build the line - run game and pass protection were awful. Not to mention the lack of a backup tailback or even starting quality one. 

 

Yes, Cruz has nice numbers especially tonight. But you can't afford to invest so much in a slot guy. Nicks and Randle did the heavy lifting. The Cruz contract is a mirage.

You could see and feel that Dumbo was HURTING out there and he wasn't getting good oompf on his throws and the running game wasn't giving him much either....but that's what happens, and that's how you finally get over the hump for a team that's owned you and ruined you the last few years.....win and WIN UGLY.....take a deep breath and get going for next week!!!

 

The defense took a hit once Mo Clayborne was out, but stiil....they carried the load tonight (sounds weird considering the score....)

Have to disagree here, slot or not Cruz can make a big play at anytime. Defense has to be aware which leaves space for Nicks and Randle to do some damage. Most teams would live to have this "problem".

The problem there is the Giants are bad on both lines, and the rest of their D is weak and the running game offers ZERO balance..... Jesus sounds like most of the Garrett Cowboy teams .... :ninja:

 

Here a little levity for your morning :)

You could throw anyone in the slot in the NYG offense with Eli and they would put up respectable numbers. Not as big as Cruz, but I don't think his contract allows to build an offensive line to foster a run game or offer any protection. Remember Steve Smith? Whoever the slot guy is will put up great numbers in this offense. Eli is the engine and he just needs receivers to do their jobs. Again, Cruz has great talents and could put up monster numbers, but I don't think a league average slot guy would hinder the offense. 

 

Think of it as your stance towards Kovalchuk - I don't hate the player, I hate the contract.

Cruz signed his contract like two months ago, well after FA and the draft so it hasn't exactly impacted this year's roster.

They also lost Pouncey and Foote to season-ending injuries. Yikes. You don't want to jump to so many conclusions after one game, but this team already looked pretty meh entering the year; add in this ugly offensive showing against a defense that gave up the most points and 6th most yards last season, and these injuries, and things are looking pretty gloomy in Pittsburgh right now. 

 

Speaking of the Giants and fumbles, they are working out Joe McKnight, lol.

I think reports of the Eagles' suckitude were greatly exaggerated though.

 

Of course McCoy goes off the year before and after I draft him in fantasy, but at least I finally have DeSean Jackson :lol:

Love the warp speed attack of the Eagles. We'll see how defenses adjust but there's too much talent for that team to win less than 6 games.

 

Pretty wild finish in San Diego; Chargers pretty much dominated for 2.5 quarters and then blew a 21 point lead with about 20 minutes left to play. New coach, same Chargers.

What are you talking about?  Bills took a lead in that game and it took NE kicking a field goal as time wound down for the Pats to win.  EJ Losman threw for two scores and played well for a 23-year-old playing in his very first NFL game.  If I was a Bills' fan, there's definitely positives to be taken out of that game.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
