If neither Rivers or LT can play, NE climbs to -20. Very interesting to hear that a SD trainer was reported during the game yesterday that LT was medically cleared to play, but CHOSE NOT TO play... wow! I also saw during the game that LT was yelling at Rivers on the sideline after Rivers returned from the lockerroom. It was the drive that Volek -- free agent next year -- took them to the winning score.
If you could only choose one to play in the AFC game, would you rather have LT -or- Rivers?
Team discontent? They're still having issues. LT was rumored to say something about momentum and if they needed him, he'd play, but wanted to avoid more injury for the game against NE... odd thing was, they were losing at that point, so he must've had unusual confidence in his back-ups.
The Packers are playing great football. The Packers are banged up in the secondary, but that's about the only weakness to be found on this team. The Giants are a beat up team. Taking into account how they have to travel up to GB and play in the snow, I just don't see it happening. If the Giants had a week off to recouperate they would stand a much better chance of beating the Packers.
In order for SD to win, they need a few things to happen. The first is to play a turnover-free game. This is unlikely at best, but they can't afford to give anything away. The second is for a healthy LdT, either through running or receiving, to exploit the age and lack of speed in the linebackers. As for SD's defense, they must pray.
Sad to say it, but the trip didn't happen. Forking over at least a grand for such a small trip wasn't in my budget. That being said however, my contact said that another playoff game next year should be in the cards.
I just called my Brother-in-law to see if he needed help on a construction project that he's working on.
He answered the phone by saying:"Dallas Cowboys suicide hotline, can I help you?"
I hate him, too. And I hope his new shop falls on him.
You know, I wouldn't have been as upset about them losing to the Packers. I would like to see Favre leave the game on top.
I can't stand to look at Eli Manning. He always has a stupid look on his face and I half expect to see drool coming from the corner of his mouth.
Would the Giants have won if Michael Strahan hadn't played well? He got the game ball yesterday and in the game against TB, he had eight tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and all sorts of pressure on TB.
Two dominating performances?
Where am I going with this? Should teams re-evaluate veterans in training camp and pre-season? If you'll remember, he sat out until game one.
