  Monday morning ramble...
So, the Superbowl Champion New York Football Giants lost their last regular season game yesterday. I'm not really crushed by this, it was really more like the Champs invited the Vikings to come along and play a game or two in the playoffs. I mean, let's be real here! Who'd the Vikings beat in the second half yesterday? They beat the Giants second string! And it was still close! 12-4!

For the first time in Giants history they have TWO 1000 yard rushers! Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward joined a pretty cool list of tandem running backs to accomplish this feat. Larry Czonka and Mercury Morris did it on the undefeated Dolphin team in '72. Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier did it for the '76 Steelers and Mack and Byner did it for the Browns in '85. I'm not counting the Falcons because if one of the tandem is a QB then I personally would say that's not a very balanced offensive attack. And where did it get the Falcons anyway?

Hey check this out! David Carr, the Giants backup QB has a 144.1 QB rating! So what if he's only thrown 12 passes all year!

Now let's get down to the rest of it...

The Cowgirls are out! What a shame. If it was up to me, I'd make it illegal to even talk about them until the season is over and minicamps start up! What can you say about the 'Girls other than they may be the new Raiders, or at least the Raiders of the NFC. Because just like the Raiders, when the owner of the team gets to involved everything gets hosed up!

My prediction for next year...you ready? At the beginning of next season, the Cowgirls will once again be considered by the dumbass talking heads to be the best team in the NFC. HA!

I was watching NFL Network last night and Neon Dione, I call him that because I remember that he doesn't like it, couldn't seem to face it. He refuses to put any blame on the owner, I think Jerry Jones and him might have a thing going on, if you know what I mean. He refuses to give credit to anything ever related to the Giants. This fact was quite evident when the crew of the Sunday show was talking about the miraculous turn around of the Miami Dolphins. He wouldn't mention the front office guy who helped make it happen. Like Parcells didn't have anything to do with that!

The NFL Network will continue to be a second rate network as long as Neon Dione is on it. I don't care how many interceptions he had when he played or any other stat that he may have excelled in when he played. He's worse than Theisman when it comes to talking about football. What is it with some of these EX-cowgirls? Some of them, like Sanders and Irvin, I couldn't stand when they played and I can't stand as talking heads. Others like Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman and Moose (I can't think of his name right now) who I had a lot of respect for as players are still doing a fine job.

I can remember a few years back when the Giants didn't make the playoffs with a 10-6 record. I was not happy, especially when I saw that the Shehawks had made it with the same record. I can't imagine how Patriot fans must feel after their team won 11 games and didn't make the playoffs! Look, I understand that the NFL is divided up into divisions and division winners get to the playoffs, but should an 8-8 team really make it when an 11-5 team doesn't?

And here's another thing that bothers me about some football players. I've always heard it said, act like you've been there before. This mainly pertains to guys getting into the end zone during a football game. But, if you're on a losing team and you score a touchdown, where do you get off acting like you're something special? If your team sucks and you occasionally do something that might be considered a little special, like scoring, and if you're on a losing team, it probably does seem special to you, then why not pretend like you have a little class? Why act like an idiot in the end zone if for no other reason than to get onto Neon Dione's list of "Primetime players"? If you got your second touchdown or sack in week 17, then you're not special!!!

Here's to hoping the NFL changes a few things this off season. I surely don't want to be subjected to losers like the Cowgirls and the "Kittens" in Detroit every Thanksgiving! 9-23 between them! Awesome! Oh well, it makes the women in my life a little happier when I'm not glued to the TV all day on Thanksgiving!

Congratulations to teams like the Falcons and the Dolphins for the awesome turnarounds from a year ago. Considering what the Falcons have been through, I think that's pretty impressive and for the Dolphins to go from least to beast in one season is outstanding! I mean come on! From 1-15 to 11-5 and AFC East champs is pretty dmaned good!

And lastly, why the hell don't my Giants have any cheerleaders? It's not like they can't find any beautiful women in NY and Jersey! Yeah, most of them have big hair, but that can be fixed!

That's all I got...

Have a nice day!

Tampa or bust!

Happy New Year!!!
