It's starting again!
Last year, every time I turned on a sports channel like ESPN all I ever heard was how the Giants didn't belong in the playoffs. They were the worst team in the playoffs....blah, blah, blah...
It's not quite as bad this year, but their are still a couple of talking heads that say that team from Philly is gonna win on Sunday. These talking heads seem to base this partly on their performance in the last game of the season. Weren't these idiots watching the same game I was? Didn't they see that there wasn't one starter left in the game for the G-men by the fourth quarter? Didn't they see that Eli didn't even play in the second the half?
If the Eagles did make it to the Superbowl we already know how it ends. The same way that movie Invincible ended. The Eagles don't win the Superbowl!
The talking head I've seen lately, talking trash about MY Giants, is Tim Hasselbeck, who in his 6 year career in the NFL threw a total of 177 passes. He was actually on the Giants roster for two years! Never through a pass, but apparently he was there!
Last weekend, on Saturday to be a little more precise, I was watching football and I saw that NBC had a new football analyst. Matt Millen! For those of you that don't know who Matt Millen is, I'll tell you. He was president and CEO of the ONLY team in NFL history to lose all 16 regular season games. The football team that he put together managed to lose EVERY game they played in 2008! And somehow this qualifies him to analyse other teams? I guess it's one of those things your parents told you when you were younger...you remember, do as I say, not as I do...
I guess I shouldn't bitch to much, at least if Millen is talking I don't have to listen to Olbermann!
I'm sitting at home looking for a job and boneheads like this get hired to analyse someone elses effort after they proved to be the most monumental failure in the history of their profession. What's fair about that? It's like the people at goldman sachs or lehman brothers getting bonuses! I guess it's "those who can, do, those who can't, talk about it!"
So, come Monday, I might be back to twist the knife. I will say that I'd rather have seen the Vikings again or better yet, the Cardinals. But, MY Giants will do what needs to be done to make sure they're still playing next weekend.
That's my prognostication! Big word huh? Didn't even have to look it up!
Have a nice day!
