This is the first time that I have to admit to being completely wrong *cough* on something but the last round of the playoffs, boy did I suck harder than Bum Joe Don and his stink-sucking job on Mad TV. That’s right, I went a drastic “O-fer” and absolutely none of my picks were right. Sure, the Titan’s definitely should have won their game and the Panthers will probably not have another game that bad for 10 years but that doesn’t matter.
Let’s move on to this weekend now, shall we? The match ups in these two games are very interesting with at least one team reminding me (almost eerily) of a recent Super Bowl Champion. Find out why…
Eagles 23 - Giants 11
I’m not really sure if I’m just paying more attention this year or if things are actually just this bad. I have yet to watch a game that has not been decided by a team shooting themselves in the foot. After watching the Titans and the Panthers fumble and throw their games away I was expecting a “return to normalcy” with a Tom Coughlin lead coach and I couldn’t have been more disappointed.
The game started off well for the Giants with a big kick return and a 4th and 2 conversion. However, the Giants were only able to get a field goal out of it. New York’s D came out really hot and held the Eagles to a 4th and 21 but there were two flags on the punt return making the Giants start on their own 12.
