NFC Championship Game Open Thread: Giants @ Packers

Sunday, January 20, 2008


Joe Buck dreams of these hands reaching out to caress him, as do Peter King and John Madden. Hopefully this game should be better than the previous one. Document the atrocities and bring the funny in the comments, folks.

If you have a beverage, drink for:
1) Eli Manning Face
2) "Gunslinger" references
3) Any time Brett Favre is "just having fun out there"

Oh really. Mr. As-Many-Endorsement-Deals-As-Playoff-Wins. Mr. Actively-Refuse-to-Play-in-San-Diego.

Yep, that's the ol' gunslinger, Eli "The Unsung Hero" Manning.

I'm watching these guys make their picks and it's so cold on the field they can't even move their faces! This is the best pre-game show I've seen all season. I hope they stay out on the field the entire game.

Ha, JJ's water glass is frozen solid. How bout them cowboys?

Tom said...

They should stay in the studio so you can understand and hear them and they can do more than comment on the cold.

Yo, pm. FOX has the rights, and it'll be Buck and Aikman much to the rest of the universe's dissapointment.

The Packers really only look interested in getting back to the sideline. So much for the Abominable Cold Weather Stubble Warrior, triumphing over the elements and his opponent. Favre looks cold and bad.

JamesCraven said...
Jan 20, 2008, 8:44:00 PM  

Refs aren't forcing GB offsides! The illegal contact call was good, Harris shoved the WR to the ground before making the pick and the roughing the passer call was atrocious and shouldn't've been called. So they screwed up one call, albeit a big one, as it kept the drive alive. But the Pack D shot themselves in the foot with those offsides penalties that close to the end zone. Stupid d-line play there.

pm said...
Jan 20, 2008, 8:44:00 PM  

That was a completely legit roughing the passer call. Running full speed into the QB after a play is whistled dead will usually draw a flag.

Looked like he never had two feet and possession, but that's water under the bridge. It counts and Eli's gotta come back. Just to be clear, I'm no Giants fan, I just despise the Favre-love.

I think in that clip of Aikman putting on his makeup, he did a pretty good job of making himself look like a sissy.

Both feet were in on the Packers TD. The replay clearly showed it.

WOW! He did get his feet down. Full speed, it looked like he hit out of bounds first. What a grab.

I really don't much care who wins, but I feel for Coughlin. He spends all his time telling his players how to play the game, and moron gets a PF completely across the field from the play.

He has coached the leggings off of McCarthy and Lord Favre.

I'm with you, ed. Coughlin has done a great job coaching this game.

@ jamescraven:

wrong homer. and not the "Illiad" and "Odyssey" guy, either. I was accused of being an overzealous fan. Which is not true, but I am a bitter Bears fan, so it's partially true, by proxy.

Why is Cory Webster on an NFL team? He's gone for the pumpfake twice! Also, I wish whomever taught Ryan Grant not to fumble could've taught him that at ND.

@hawkeye19:

at least you have AP to look forward to...that kid is fucking incredible.I have the exit of Lance Briggs and Bernard Berrian, coupled with Angelo's inevitable drafting of 7 defensive players and then trotting out Orton, Ced Benson, and a crumbling, ancient offensive line next season. Man, this is depressing me even more...

The Giants are playing like douchebags right now after the INT. Tom Coughlin, your thoughts?

JamesCraven said...

@pm

Yeah, the Purple Jesus is looking fine. Now if we'd just get a QB, and some receivers and a TE we'd be fine!

And Berrian will look _great_ in purple net year.

HawkEye19 said...

#65's happy he just didn't have to run with it.

Talk about luck -- linemen touch the ball three times in their career, and he gets it in the NFC championship.

I think Berrian will look for a better QB situation and a team with more cap room. Sideny Rice looked pretty good for you guys, though, and You may be able to pick up a QB in the draft. Grossman's a free agent too!

Kickers make tackles in at least three games in their careers.

Crosby just got one of them.

Because glasses look hot.
But you are right; most women don't like themselves in glasses and thus wouldn't be wearing them in bar full of horny drunk men who drink nothing but Bud.

JamesCraven said...

There are several space heaters in the booth. They're under the table. Buck & Aikman have to take a few steps back for those on-camera shots.

Angelo would never make that deal. Too gun-shy. He'll try to draft one late.
