NFL  > New York Giants  > Giants (QB Killers) Another QB bites the dust!
October 26, 2010, 01:48 AM
Well after the first two Giants drives I will admit "Dancing with the Stars"was looking good to me because if I wanted to watch crap I'd go to that show... It was looking like the Titans game all over again. The Cowboys came out hard, Ware was bringing pressure early and just took advantage of the Giants mistakes but instead of panicking and forcing the ball down the field, Eli held it together and put together a good drive to score with the Cowboys defense playing very soft on Hakeem Nicks... it's 13-7 and the next thing you know it's 20-7 with Dez Bryant's punt return for a TD where it looked like there was only 5 Giants on the field, Betty White could have ran that ball to the house!!!

And then it happened.. a untouched Boley is given a free shot at Romo and is taken out of the game. Next thing you know The Giants put up 31 unanswered points...

You hate to see players go down, If I could boooo the Giants for being dirty or if any of these hits on QB's were illegal, I would say shame on the Giants but every time it's just been free shots so I say shame on the pass protectors!!!

It's a Division win = Happy
4 straight = Happy
Putting the game away = Not Happy

+5 turnovers really pissed me off. Their play in the 4th quarter was horrid. They could have put the game away but they continued to make mistakes and put the Cowboys back in the game, You got soft when you should have went for the kill shot and really made it a ugly win than convincing. I hope they learn moving forward..

Eli Manning's composure after the first 2 INTS was very good to see again. Some guys would fall apart but he kept his cool put together some great drives and put up 4 td's, other than the 2 tip balls which were high but the 3rd INT was one his bad but he'll learn moving forward.

I'm happy where we are going, We are going into a bye week healthy, with 2 healthy running backs, a defense that keeps getting better and with 4 straight wins ... I'm happy that we are continuing to move forward not backwards.

What else is there to say...

Raheem Morris says it all... The Tampa Bay Bucs are the Best Team in the NFC !!!

congrats to you and your Giants, aside from letting the Cowboys back into the game they looked really solid throughout the game. Kudos to Eli for staying calm, really shows some maturity. The way i look at it is the G-Men had 5 turnovers and won, what can they do when they get rid of those? The Giants and Falcons look like the two teams to beat in the NFC, the way the Giants are playing there aren't going to be any teams (at least none with QB's) even left to play!

Congrats Sam, on your team's win!

Our fearless (and stupid) owner deserves the game ball tho, for his stupid comments and publicity stunt just before the game started. What an idiot!

Giants are very good. Easily the best of the NFC and maybe the only team in that conference that can match the physicality of the top AFC teams.

October 26, 2010  08:17 AM ET

Bull, what was the publicity stunt prior to the game, I must have been channel flipping between NFL network and ESPN? What was "Skeletor" up to last night?

Jacobs and Bradshaw are the one-two punch Dallas thought they had in July--LOL. Doesn't work when you have no O-Line. NY suffered from O-Line problems last year due to injuries, Dallas suffers from that due to injuries and an aging line.
I consider this season a done deal now, the only thing that would please me is to see JJ eat a pound of crow EVERY week as he watches his $100M payroll underachieve due to his inability to hire and keep a strong staff.

Best shot of the night last night was JJ bracketed by his two sons as they watched the lead evaporate like gasoline on a driveway in July in the hot Texas sun! It looked like the 3 stooges.

Rookie freaking mistake...Romo has the legs to have sidestepped that too, done it many times. He elected to hang in there and deliver the ball--bad choice.

The tacklewas textbook wrap up the QB, pin his arm so he can't put it out and drive him into the turf; legal and effective. Called the broken clavicle before he even got up; was pretty standard technique in the 70s, results were worse then with the concrete hard surfaces.

I knew he was done too..... It was a good clean tackle! Now that's football! I admired that he tried to get back on the field right 2 plays later.... Sorry Tony!

I wouldn't call it clean Dawn, when you grab the guy, pin his arm and twist him onto the side the intent is to get the shoulder or collar-bone. When you put him flat on his back chance for injury is much less. Boley knew what his goal was and he achieved it. I know its a fast game but those guys are big enough and fit enough to twist and twirl a guy as needed; the right handed throw to the left precipitated Romo's "death spiral" and Romo could have helped himself by trying to spin further to the left, turning his back and making it harder for Boley to line up his shoulder. Romo stood in there as they say and paid the price. Maybe it's for the better, he sits out, they pile up losses and try again next year.

Publicity stunt stuff. I must have seen another of your posts before this one, so you know by now.

Well, he is a rookie tho. That stuff happens with rookies. It's just a shame that it put Romo out of the game for awhile.

It may be best for the whole team. Maybe Jerry will do what needs to be done, now that his aspirations to be the first to host a SB, and all of that other glamor BS isn't working, but somehow....I doubt it.

Clean and legal have two meanings I guess!~ It is unfortunate for the whole team, and maybe it is a blessing in disguise, but I thought it was a textbook tackle!

Oh it was textbook with the wrap up and all that from a coaching perspective, absolutely agree with you. It was not the helmet issue from last week, nor the "diving at the knees" from Palmer and Brady though I don't recall if those were purely accidental, wasn't Brady's where a KC Chief got rolled or pushed into his knee?

The tackle was meant to injure, that's part of the game; Harrison said so last week. Boley had a choice to open up his arms and land like a pseudo-pushup if you will and not drive his 250lbs into Romo's shoulder; he elected not to. C'est la vie.

I do think it will be a blessing in disguise, the team is young, it will highlight the true warts on the team and those may be fixed. To limp along with a strong core and hover around .500 at the end of the year would raise false hope. Look how a strong finish bought Wade and his gang of misfit toys another year; we knew he was marginal LAST October yet he's still here.

Cheers

I think the way this season is going it is best to reserve judgement on who is the best in the NFC. A team that is great now will be horrible later. Still way too much season to crown any team as good.

Thanks Bull, I know I was thinking that had to be the dumbest Promo I ever seen Jerry do, He's really has to stop all that pressure...

I'm a fan and I wouldn't go that far... The Cheifs could have beat them with their 5 turnovers. The Giants aren't there yet to really face the Best of the AFC (Steelers, Ravens, Jets, Titans, Cheifs, Patriots or Colts) 2 of those kicked their butts already.

Is Jerry Jones the only owner that gets the first Camera reaction shot in the League? I think so, Every big play it cuts to Jerry Box. Yeah it was fun watching him jump around like he took his Cialis shot to just a sad man with performance issues.

As a Giants fan I like to see more of the Owners....Maybe just John Mara's Neices..lol Kate and Rooney Mara!!!
