A buddy of mine in the Navy had that. He always told me it was the most miserable two weeks of his life.

Re: The Giants ........

On tv they were talking about how the Browns D is small and gets pushed around alot. I can see our big linemen opening holes for Portis. We will need to basically do what they did and that is play keep away. If our offense is on the field they can't score. wear them down with the run so in the 4th quarter they are tired and can't tackle well. The medium ball was there for the Giants but they didn't utilize it or dropped the balls thrown there. Hopefully we can get some interceptions. Lewis looked small compared to the Giants D. He was getting some runs but only after they had to back up to stop the Browns passing game. He was stuffed early on.

Re: The Giants ........

I missed most of the game because I was playing Madden and I thought it was going to be a Giants rout anyway. I turned it on just in time to see Manning throw the pick 6. I couldn't believe it, the NFC East took it on the chin this weekend.

He most likely has, according to reporting I have heard, a hydrocele--which is a collection of fluid around a testicle. This can be caused by several things, some serious, some not. Of these causes, elephantiasis is low on the list. Elephantiasis is a parasitic infection that one contracts from mosquitoes primarily in Africa and Southeast Asia.

I disagree. We played lousy, and the Rams won because of how lousy we played.

Agreed. Coming off that big upset, they are going to be hot. I hope our Skinz got a wake-up call last week and takes it to them. I hope the team that handed the Cowgals and the Iggles their arses shows up this Sunday, thirsty, mad and ready to represent our house.

Re: The Giants ........

Something good about the Giants loss besides the Skins not falling farther behind in the standings: the Giants look a whole lot more human now. The were undefeated defending champs and looked like a juggernaut. Now they look a lot more beatable. They're still really good but much less intimidating.

I agree that we played lousy, sloppy football, but at least we were able to move the ball consistently before shooting ourselves in the foot via dropped pass, turnover, or penalty. The Rams offense was pretty much inept, and take away the Kendall play, this game isn't even close since we were going in for a score there. Turnovers are part of the deal, so we deserve the loss. My point that it was a fluke was that the team doing most of the physical domination ended up losing the game.

Re: The Giants ........

I liked the fact that both teams were pounding on each other late into the night. It also show that if you turn the ball over like the Giants and the skins did any team can beat you.

Re: The Giants ........

While the Giants loss is good for us, it won't matter until the Skins can prove that the loss to the Rams is a fluke and they are really more like the team that beat Dallas and Philly on the road.

He was awful last night, but he is not the same QB as he was a year ago. He'll be fine for next week against San Fran.

As for the game itself, poor QB play+no pass rush=loss.

2 plays that changed the game were the 70 yarder to Edwards after Giants went up 7-3. Browns had playeed really well, and were still losing. They shut them down on that series, the crowd would have soured and the Giants would have got the motors running and blown them out.

The other play was the 2nd Eli INT. Just cut the lead before half. Get tha ball to start the 3rd quarter, which is the best time for the road team. Have a chance to take the lead, crowd was ready to crumble and Eli brought them right back into it.

The last INT wasn't a game changer, imo. By that time, the game was over. Even if they score, I do not think the D would have held Cleveland to give the O a chance.

Every now and then a good kick in the pants does more good than harm. Gives you a reality check and reminds a team that you are never as good as you seem to be when you win a lopsided game (seattle). Let them get back to work this week and get ready for San Fran. Schedule gets very tough beginning the 26th in Pittsburgh. I am willing to bet that no one will be walking around at Giants practice tomorrow with any kind of arrogance.

Re: The Giants ........

Eli is Eli,he has games like this ....not all the time but he does and as a Giant fan I must live with it.What will tell if the Giants are for real is how they handel this,I will say that the D was as bad as Eli was.
I really don't think there are alot of Redskin fans or Giant fans that really expected either team to go 16-0,both will lose other games ....as will the Cowpukes and the Eaglets,it's early yet.
