Yes, the Cowboys straight up crippled the Giants defense during that final seconds-long drive. But to do so, Cowboys needed a lot more seconds than they would’ve gotten had Eli Manning decided not to throw the ball away and halt to clock in the drive before. The heat he got right after is warranted.
Manning finally answered for himself. He revealed that he told running back Rashad Jennings not to score (to run out the time, which is just bizarrely ironic) and that he’s at fault for what happened on that fatal mistake on third down.
“I’ve got to do a better job understanding that if they’re not wide open,” Manning said, according to NFL.com. “That I got to take a sack. I have to be smarter in that scenario.”
https://platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.jsThe Cowboys-Giants rivalry is one of great stress and heartache. This time the Giants got the worse end of it. New York lost 27-26 after it crumbled in the Cowboys’ last drive in the final seconds. Tony Romo was supposed to blow it with another interception in that final drive. He’d already thrown two interceptions, including a pick six at Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s hands. But Romo was fed-up with the jokes. He hit running back Lance Dunbar on two huge plays and took advantage of the flaccid Giants, who decided not to guard the sidelines in the final second. Jason Witten finished it off by catching Romo’s 11-yarder in the end zone. Although the Big Blue defense blew it, Eli Manning certainly isn’t faultless. He was unspectacular this game, but he pulled a rookie move before the Cowboys got the ball. He decided to throw the ball away on 3rd down before setting up for the field goal. You do not stop the clock and give the other team a shot at a comeback, even if the quarterback is Tony Romo.
Earlier this month, Jason Pierre-Paul visited the Giants for the first time since the fireworks incident that forced him to amputate his right index finger. The news called for cautious optimism, but that smidgeon of hope reportedly turned sour after that visit.
ESPN’s Dan Graziano reports that Pierre-Paul’s injury was worse than the Giants thought. A source told them that that in addition to his prior injuries, “a portion of one of the other fingers on Pierre-Paul’s right hand is missing.”
What’s more, it’s possible that the other finger could be his thumb. Look at the photos of his bandaged hand.
At this point who else is waiting for them to drop a mixtape?!?! Or Nah? Lol. Just jokes people, just like the 2 Super Bowl winning brother’s New song titled “Fantasy” in which they proclaim their love for Football. Check out the video below! Is it me or did Eli Manning get into it with the whole wardrobe change situation?!
He will definitely go down in history as one of the best Philadelphia Eagles player ever! DeSean Jackson not only has talent, but also a certain excitement about him. Call him a show boater if you want but he has the highlights and skills to back it up! Enjoy the videos!
Isn’t that what the commercial says. “No matter how hard they try to knock us down….we will rise.” I know it’s hard to believe especially when our beloved Birds are coming off an embarrassing 52-20 loss to the Denver Broncos, but so what. This is Philadelphia, birthplace of Rocky. A character that embodies our never say die attitude, a character that routinely took his lumps, only to fight through the odds and become a champion.
So as much as this is an open statement to all the fans that may be a little distraught it’s also a wake up call to those players that visit the website and are routinely on social media.
Your skill has earned you the right to be a pro, and fate has brought you to Philadelphia. We aren’t the only ones that expect you to fight through adversity and overcome any obstacle that is placed in front of you, the world does. The history of our fandom, the players that came before you that gave everything they had are the reason we stand in support of you. We love our team and because of that tuff love we can say “fight harder for us” if the outcome isn’t a win, so be it. This game is over, throw it out and let’s get back on track.
There couldn’t be a better gift than having the New York Giants on the schedule this week. The Giants are the only winless team left in the NFC East and if we come out confident and play like we did versus Washington and San Diego we’ll have a shot at getting off this losing streak.
According to USA Today, Andy Reid has been fired after 14 seasons as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, with the official announcement coming Monday.
The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Eagles haven’t made any announcement yet, was unsure if it will be spun as Reid resigning or if he’ll be fired, but said it’s clear he will not coach the Eagles after Sunday’s 42-7 loss to the New York Giants.
I guess the rich just keep gettin’ richer. G-Unit General 50 Cent recently came up on $500,000 as a result of betting on the New York Giants in the NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49er’s.
January generally marks the start of so many things. It’s the first month of the new year, and usually is the time where many people make promises that they have no real intention of keeping over the next 12 months. While outside it’s becoming more frigid, such is not the case in the world of sports. In fact, with the start of the NFL playoffs last weekend–as R. Kelly famously sang back in the 12 Play days– the temperature’s rising. If you want some real quality time this month with your man, consider joining him on the couch for the next two weekends. It’s the countdown to the Super Bowl, which will be held in icy Indianapolis on February 5th. But while the Super Bowl is mostly about the big event’s pomp and circumstance, the real action is actually taking place right now with the money on the line for the remaining teams. Describing the next two weeks in the NFL as “intense” is an understatement. Who will be left standing come Super Bowl weekend? Here’s a few reasons for you to join the action this weekend:
Introducing Victor Cruz
Ladies, you know I will never steer you wrong. It’s likely that if you do not live in the New York Tri-state area then you probably haven’t paid much attention to New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. That needs to change. Keep your eyes on number 80. You will totally understand this statement once you experience him live. He has become an immediate fan favorite this season, partly because of his lighting-fast and the fact that he leads the team in touchdown catches. He is pure entertainment. And each time Cruz scores, you need to pay attention because it’s all about his signature touchdown salsa dance!
The Giants take on the defending champion Green Bay Packers this Sunday. The Packers only lost one regular season game. Needless to say, It will be a fight to see which team advances to the next round but keep your eyes on Cruz. You won’t be mad at all. Aye papi!
As bad and things felt in Eagle nation after the embarrassing loss to the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night, things started to turn our way the rest of the weekend. I know of the saying “Misery loves company” and guess what, Im happy that both the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys took “L’s” this week also.
It can be hard for us fans of the Philadelphia Eagles to rationalize why our team is underperforming week in and week out. It becomes even more difficult when we have outsiders in the form of Giants and Cowboys fans ridiculing us and proclaiming how much better than us they are.
There is another saying that is tried and true, “Pride before destruction” and the Giants and Cowboys have routinely fell victim to this. All of us are smart enough to know that our fandom doesn’t affect the teams performance. We may set a good atmosphere at the game but in actuality our like or dislike of a team is based on the opposing fans.
With that said, it was an amazing feeling to watch the hated Dallas Cowboys suffer a heart wrenching overtime loss to the lowly Arizona Cardinals. All the talk about how they are the best team in the NFC East, even though we already beat them, had Cowboys fans crashing back to earth.
I don’t know if you realized this, but the Cowboys loss set a lot of things back in order in the sports world. Tiger Woods won his first tournament in over two years with a victory at the Chevron World Challenge. Maybe this fortunate turn of events can jump start some success from our Eagles.
Plaxico Burress, the best wide receiver the New York Giants had in over a decade and the last person to touch the football for the Giants in their classic Super Bowl win over the previously undefeated New England Patriots in 2008, is being released from prison on Monday (June 6th). Burress has been in jail since 2009 for bringing a loaded gun into a popular Manhattan nightclub and accidentally shooting himself in the leg. He is being released three months earlier than scheduled for good behavior.
Burress will be 34 in August. His height (6’5″) made him a favorite target of Giants quarterback Eli Manning and will make him attractive to a few NFL teams once the lockout is over. Rumor has it that Burress is interested in signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, who already ha ve their own ex-convict/redemption story in Comeback Player of the YearMichael Vick. Burress and Vick have a history together that dates as far back as high school where they played together in Virginia, but it may be difficult to sign Burress for the amount of money he will demand and re-sign star receiver Desean Jackson. Burress may also have to deal with being the third option on a team that also has receiver Jeremy Maclin. While Vick played the good soldier for a season before his natural talent earned him back his starting job, one has to wonder if Burress would be okay with taking a limited role.
Further complicating matters is the fact that some of Plaxico’s former Giants teammates like defensive tackle Justin Tuck have made it clear they want him back on the team. The Giants were well on their way to defending their Super Bowl championship before Burress shot himself and ended the team’s hopes. The outrage and criticism surrounding Burress made it a smart move for the Giants to release him at the time. Add to that the “other” New York team, the Jets, have tossed around going after Burress. Their two top receivers Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards are free agents and it is not a given that they can re-sign both. Mark Sanchez joked about adding Burress in an interview last week. While Philly and the two New York teams are high profile landing places, the team with a major need at wide receiver and the ability to pay Burress what he wants may lie in a smaller market.
The St. Louis Rams need a wide receiver and although they were a win away from winning a terrible NFC West division with a losing record last season, they are far from the “Best Show on Turf” days of Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Issac Bruce and Torry Holt. Burress will be looking to re-enter the league in a place where he can make a splash and the Rams may not be as prestigious, but they have a young QB in Sam Bradford who can get him the ball.
Whenever the labor dispute ends Plaxico Burress will be picked up by an NFL team. A change of scenery may be what Burress needs to restart his life as well as career. I think he goes where he can be a starter and the main option at wide receiver and that place is not Philadelphia. The Jets are reportedly looking at Randy Moss. I believe the St. Louis Rams will make Burress an offer that will eventually put Plax in blue and gold. The challenge of bringing the Rams back to prominence could be too good to pass up.
Before he could even celebrate the New Year, New York Giants’ defensive end, Justin Tuck was involved in a minor car crash in Teaneck, New Jersey.
The accident happened around 8:30pm when a Nissan Maxima apparently struck Tuck’s BRAND NEW Cadillac Escalade. As you can imagine, a lot of fans’ main concern is whether Tuck will be able to play on Sunday in Washington. And, no worries, he will. According to the police department, no one was injured. That’s great – but that poor, poor Escalade. Check out the pic of the car.
Be safe out there!
