Raiders Foiled By The Fumble That Wasn’t

Isn’t it enough revenge for the league, watching Al Davis slowly die while his franchise sinks into further irrelevence?

While taking zilch away from Vince Young’s most impressive day as a pro, the Giants blowing a 21 point lead with 10 minutes left against the Titans was a choke job for the ages. Rookie DE Mathias Kiwanuka seemingly had VY in his grasp on 4th and 10 with 2:48 left and Big Blue clinging to a 21-14 advantage, but the former must’ve momentarily thought he was playing touch football. Colonel Coughlin promptly went apeshit ; the next time the Giants lose their composure, there are no prizes for guessing who set the terrific example.

While it is far too early to pronouce Eli Manning a total bust, he’s having a crap second half of the season for the 2nd year in a row. The second of his two passes picked off by Pacman Jones could only be characterized as something other than ill-advised if Eli had bet money on Tennessee. Congrats to the current generation of Giants fans, you’ve now experienced your very own Joe Pisarcik moment.

    Vince Young’s wonderlic score really played a factor in today’s second half.

    hey, if he wants to come back to UT and play in the Gator Bowl, I’m all for it.

    Eli’s certainly been having problems, there’s no doubt about it. It really kinda makes you think how far a bloodline will get you in professional football, doesn’t it?

    BTW, I love the site! Very informative and you have a lot of good insight in here. If you happen to have any room in the Gridiron section in your side bar, give my site a shot; my name should be the link.

    Thanks, and keep all this up!

    well, I also wonder how far having a solid OL and a healthy Armani Toomer will get you in professional football.

    Eli’s having a horrible month, no two ways about it. But the totally banged up or not, there’s no way the Giants should’ve allowed the Titans to score 4 times in less than 10 minutes. Manning provided the ammo for ten of those points, but not all 24.

    re : links. OK. Just don’t go telling your friends.
