Thoughts and Musings

A wise man once said a win is a win is a win. And this week is no different. It wasn’t pretty, but the Giants averted disaster.

-I don’t think anyone is outplaying Aaron Rodgers, but I think Eli Manning is a close second. He’s just been on fire. In command. Winning games for the team. Making other players (Jake Ballard, Victor Cruz) better. I can’t speak enough to just how good and how valuable Eli has been.

-I see you, Justin Tyron. Great tackle on Reggie Bush there.

-Speaking of Bush, he has two career 100 yard rushing games in his career. Both are against the Giants. I’m not sure if that’s weird, bad or just a coincidence.

-Interested to see what happens with Hakeem Nicks. Don’t like seeing him injured like that.

-Credit Miami for showing up and playing their hearts out. They’re not Sucking for Luck.

-Speaking of Luck, had the chance to watch a good amount of the Stanford-USC game. Great game, by the way. Luck is something special. I don’t think the talent around him is that good. I think Luck makes them a lot better. He reminds me a lot of Aaron Rodgers. Huge arm, accuracy, can run it too. Is he worth giving up your whole draft for? Is he worth 3 number one picks? I’m not sure. I don’t know if anyone is worth that. But, he certainly is a damn good player.

-I’m not liking how the run game is progressing. It’s so inconsistent. Jacobs isn’t providing anything much. I think he wants out (always find it interesting that guys play poorly when they want out. What value are you to other teams? What are you going to say to teams? “Don’t worry, I was tanking on purpose.” No. Play well. Force teams to pay for you.

-Girlfriend interlude: Like I mentioned, the girlfriend met the parents this weekend, which was why there was no game coverage. And it went fantastic. They absolutely loved her. Which is great. I know how much you care about my personal life (not really) but this is going somewhere folks. Stay tuned.

-This defensive line is just awesome. JPP. Osi. Tuck. Kiwi. That’s fearsome. Fearsome. How many offensive lines can neutralize that? I think the only way the Giants are going to have a poor pass rush is if they don’t come out with effort.

-Corey Webster doesn’t get the publicity. But he should. He’s been fantastic this year. We need a nickname. Something along the lines of Revis Island. Webster’s Way? Like, Webster’s Way is a one way street? What do you guys think? Put some suggestions in the comments.

-I think it’s good the Giants pulled this one out. Because here starts the brutal schedule. Hey, we’ll see what the Giants are made of, that’s for sure.

-I think, looking ahead to New England, making sure Wes Welker doesn’t get free is key. I think he is key to what their offense wants to do. Yes, they also have Hernandez and Gronkowski, and that’s going to be a challenge. But Welker runs that offense.

-Good to see Manningham getting involved. Like I keep saying, if he picks things up, it just opens up the field for everyone else.

-Snow interlude: I’m just giving up on weather. Nor’easter? In October? I can’t take this anymore.
