Well, that was disappointing

Pax Arcana

The truth is that they were outplayed and out-coached, so there’s really not too much to complain about. The Giants lost because they inexplicably took the ball out of Brandon Jacobs’ hands — and when they did have him run, they called for lateral movement, which is not the strength of most 264-pound men — and because Eli is not a competent bad-weather quarterback.

The Giants defense was sturdy, which is heartening considering they get Osi back next season. Assuming they can draft a wideout or bring Mario Manningham around, they should be right back in it next year.

Dear NY Giants: Next time more of this please

I’m still in the grace period from last year (you may remember their spectacular triumph in the Super Bowl) so I’m less distraught than most of you would likely anticipate. That said, the prospect of Philadelphia fans celebrating two titles in the span of five months is too depressing to contemplate. Did you know that the official smell of Philadelphia is equal parts Cheez Whiz and fart? And that their official fruit is the doucheberry? It’s true. You can look it up.

    “grace period” = more bullshit promoted by bill simmons. there’s no such thing.

  2. Perry Ellis

    This makes me feel better. Go Cards!

  3. There most certainly is a grace period. Simmons didn’t invent it.

    And Perry, glad to see you doing your part to reinforce all the worst stereotypes of New England fans (petty, hopelessly self-involved, miserable). I’m glad the Giants loss makes up for last year’s Super Bowl. Oh, no wait. It doesn’t, does it?

    I wouldn’t mind an Eagles-Ravens Super Bowl. Battle of the #6 seeds! Woo!

  5. Perry Ellis

    No, but it helps.

    grace period = being satisfied with losing

    i did not say he invented it, i said he promotes the notion. FIVE YEAR GRACE PERIOD! PANTHEON! BLARRRGH I WRITE BORING DRIVEL AND HAVE BEEN FOR 10 YEARS! SUCK ON MY TEAT MINDLESS INTERNET READERS!

  7. Instead of reading Simmons, people should watch wrestling. That will prove that they’re not stupid.

    At least they didn’t lose a fluke game to a team who employed little-lord-Fauntleroy-fucknuts as quarterback, thereby ruining the perfect season.

    Do you really think fans around here care about being stereotyped? Have you seen some of these knuckle draggers?
