Yeah go Giants. 12 sacks vs Eagles
6 by Osi Umenyiora
if you watched the game, you should have heard john madden's well-played pun on winston justice not being able to stop usi umenyiora's 6 sacks on mcnabb on sunday night game:
"he cant stop him. there is no justice in this game at all. theres just no justice in the meadowlands."
hes right, the eagles dont deserve justice, and i dont mean the player. mcnabb deserved the fate he recieved after shooting down the critic's opinions on how to view the detroit lions, just because he had to "prove people wrong." well even without westbrook, when your backup BUCKHALTER gets over 100 yards rushing in the game on only 17 carries, you figure that mcnabb could have at least made one touchdown happen. so much for being "one of the top quarterbacks in the league." tony the romo can do it without a consistent runningback because he embodies all the traits needed in a quarterback. who else can take a botched snap and find a way to turn it into a first down without being michael vick or the shitty(hardly a quarterback) vince young?
aside from the giants winning... THE LIONS, my boys, were looking great in the fourth quarter breaking records. it was sloppy at times, but they got the job done, and thats what i'm loving about my team that just last year had such a "loser" mentality. now i am not claiming that the lions are going to eventually win the superbowl, their defense has much to be desired, but their offense is getting the job done. even with a good performance on defense because brian griese wasnt quite the playmaker today, the lions defense still needs to tweak quite a few things before they are a worthy contender in the nfl. yes, they won. but alot of the occurences was luck and a shoddy offense on the bear's behalf. next week i have a feeling the lions will lose to the redskins because they havent properly prepared for a mediocre matchup. when the redskins are using the same schema as the lions with luck and sloppy wins, its just going to end in a disasterous matchup.
the bears lost the intensity and deadly presence they had on defense last year, but not only on defense. their quarterback situation and trying to make something out of grossman is just killing their morale. they need a much more dependable and much much much more CONFIDENT quarterback than they have right now. a quarterback that doesnt get carried away in failure is one that can keep the team on an even keel. they need a general that can just keep the troops focused and settle down on mistakes. the defense and special teams will win them the workable field position.
CHARGERS. who would have thought that the san diego chargers would fall to 1-3 to start off the season? they need to find the spark, and they need it quickly. when they learn to channel their emotion as the young overconfident winners that they had last season, they will be the feared san diego once again. but this sort of thing happens with teams entering a new season all the time. as soon as they find a balance, they'll bounce back and HOPEFULLY make the playoffs at least. when they grab momentum, typically in the second half, they are unstoppable juggernauts that can instantly vaporize a 20 point deficit. i can recall numerous games where the opposition already knew what was happening, and despite their efforts, they had already lost while still holding a 2 touchdown lead.
i dont even know what to say about green bay. they will verse the patriots soon enough to test their true might, but right now they are looking to be the closest thing aside from the cowboys that could possibly go toe-to-toe with the pats in the inevitable super bowl matchup. i really hope the patriot's plane crashes, they suck all the life out of the game. tom brady is the only interesting character in the bunch; the rest of the team, especially teddy bruschi and his "feel good story" after already having 3 superbowls, i can do without. i really thought after their horrible start last season that i wasnt going to have to see them ever again, that their era has passed. but bill belliCHICK just wont let it go. YOU WON 3 SUPERBOWLS. STOP THINKING OF THE PAYCHECK AND LET OTHER TEAMS WIN BY JUST RAW EMOTION AND DRIVE INSTEAD OF CHEAP WINS TO ADD TO YOUR CAREER COACHING STATS. there s no emotion in foxboro. just a bunch of solid workers that just turn the patriots into the walmart of football. a "fitting superbowl" would be for the packers to pack the patriots into oblivion. they would be a nice contest to go against the walmart, the "big business." think of the packers as a superstore called "meijers" in the midwest. and THEY ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
