breathe easy, my friend. this one is in the bag. the Niners defense is not what it was advertised.
... and the Eagles & cowboys lost? it must be an early christmas.
Actually that 49er defense is as good,it just can't be hung out there like when the offense gives up the ball 3 times.
Giants just sent a HUGE message to the entire NFL
1'their defense decided to play this year today
2.more importantlyt is how the giants running game is now officially back
Laguna Beach, California, US

Good teams rally after this type of loss, bad teams collapse. I have a bad feeling that it's the latter for the Chargers.
uh, the futile attempts by jard gaither to block at the end of last week's debacle should have been your slipping point. the collapse just started 30 minutes later than scheduled.
think of the ridiculous ways the bolts have figured out how to lose in the last decade. at least the post-gannon raiders had no chance. these guys are usually picked to go far in the playoffs, if not win it all.

I don't like Chargers but it only counts as 1 loss, they have the same record as Denver ( losing the tiebreaker right now) and are tied with 4 other teams for the 2 Wildcard spots.
Watching through a fantasy football lens the Philadelphia Eagles game seemed to be a disaster as well. They held Stafford to terrible results for 3 quarters and then can't grind the time off the clock or stop him in the 4th.
Bills/Cardinals, Seattle/New England, and Atlanta/Oakland were wild ones as well , this shift towards pass happy offenses shows a real danger for the leading team when they can't establish any running game to grind out the last quarter.

Still most interesting thing to me is that Tiki retires, Shockey goes down and THEN Eli is able to assert himself.
i was always on board...i saw him play in college...
Oh,so did I,
but I was also of the(wrong) thought that the Giants could win a Super Bowl with Kerry Collins and all they needed to do was get a great O lineman(I wanted Robert Gallery....erm....DERP),some Lbs and a reciever....
Then when I heard they were going to go hard for Eli or Big Ben I was hoping that somehow they could get him without having to give up the amount of picks they did(I'm a draft pick hoarder)
Well...between this and me not wanting JPP either(though I am on record for loving the Hakeem Nicks pick and really liking the last 2 drafts),its best I stick to being an OTR trucker,hack photographer and wannabe rock star and let my favorite football team's personal decsisons be made by someone who has proven to be quite good at it
