SNF Live-Blog: Giants @ Eagles, Second Half

Sunday, November 09, 2008


DeSean Jackson, fashion plate. There are not enough three-piece suits or vests worn with dress shirts these days, honestly.

Ugh, the "Brett Favre Hero" ad for this Thursday night's NFL Network game between the Jets and Patriots. I'm surprised they didn't put Coach Hobo on in the "Villain" role and go all the way with the dumb metaphor.

And we come back to a montage with the Eagles "There's Gonna Be a Heartbreak Tonight." Demps takes the kickoff out to the 40 yard line.

"Plaxico Burress, we haven't heard much from him....er, Justin Tuck, but we haven't heard much from Plaxico either." - Al, on a Justin Tuck lack-of-highlights montage.

Westbrook doesn't get anything on first. McNabb airs it out past midfield to Jackson, who makes a nice catch at the Giants' 43. Next pass is for 9 to L.J. Smith, on what John calls "a Hall of Fame throw." Correll Buckhalter is in, and rumbles to the outside for 20 all the way to the 14 yard line. Westbrook gets to the outside again, this time inside the 10. McNabb drops back, airs a floater, and Hank Baskett comes down with it in the corner for the TOUCHDOWN!! Akers' kick is up and good, 24-20, Eagles take the lead back.

Kendra must be thrilled.

He put the biscuit in the Baskett! The Wideout Next Door... - James Craven

OK, I wish I'd thought of "The Wideout Next Door." Bradshaw juggles the kickoff before bringing it back out. Giants start at the 31 with a Jacobs rush up the middle for six. Jacobs gets the first down on the next carry. He gets the ball again and runs past midfield for another 10 yards. Manning out of the shotgun on first down, incomplete with the blitz on and Ward in to pass-block. Ward gets to the outside for six yards. Shotgun at the 42, throws to 31 to the Other Steve Smith, and it's another first down.

@ S2N: Correction coming. It's hard to believe, but the Eagles actually led 7-0... - JFein

Yes it was. Considering the dominance of time of possession by the Giants in the first half, could you blame me for forgetting that Philly had led at any point prior to that last touchdown.

3rd and 5, Burress pumps out as Manning's in the shotgun, and it's illegal contact on Asante Samuel. Automatic first.

"Burress sold that pretty well, didn't he?" - Al. Yep, that would make Cristiano Ronaldo proud. First down pass is incomplete, 2nd and 10 from the 20 yard line. The throw is behind Burress. Manning hits his receiver at the 4 -- but he's across the line of scrimmage, so this is getting called back and he'll lose a down. 4th down, and Coughlin's challenging the call.

And Coughlin's going to lose the argument at the Peep Show. - James Craven
It's nice to see Tom Coughlin is channeling Norv Turner. Seriously, Tom? Seriously? Sheesh, I always thought you were better than this. - JFein

And Coughlin wins the challenge because all parts of the QB have to be beyond the line. Manning's foot wasn't. Wow. First and goal at the 4.

Can the Geico lizard grow to Godzilla size and maul those stupid cavemen? - Mal

It's amazing how much those ads have sucked ever since the concept was made into a TV show. They were really good at the start. Boss loses control of the pass on first down in the end zone. Jacobs barrels his way through to the end zone for the TOUCHDOWN. Carney's kick is good, 27-24, Giants take the lead right back.

Demps takes the kickoff out to the 20, where he gets whacked by Bradshaw, after that, we get Eagles cheerleader shots, which are always welcome.

McNabb gets flushed out and runs for 17 yards and a first down when the protection breaks down. Westbrook heads to the left side and gets maybe a yard.

Peyton's shadow that Eli constantly exists in was not across the line of scrimmage either. Does that count? - Mal

+1. 3rd and 10 is aired out to Jason Avant, but Avant can't get there. Punt coming.

"My favorite question to ask guys with two injuries is 'Which one hurts more?' They say you can only think about one hurting at a time." - Al

Greg Lewis plows into Domenik Hixon on the punt, he apparently didn't see the fair catch call, which puts the G-men at the 33 with the extra 15 yards. Ward gets the toughest yard, bouncing in and out, and Al refers to the "hydra-headed" running back monster again.

"You've got Earth (Jacobs), Wind (Ward), and Fire (Bradshaw)." - Al. 3rd and 1, and Jacobs is brought down by the face mask on the rush out of the shotgun. Great play until he gets the hand on the mask. Ball at the Philly 43.

After an overthrown pass to Burress on 1st down, Jacobs gets 8 yards and goes over the 100 yard mark for the game. 3rd and 2, Manning goes out to Kevin Boss, who hurdles an Eagles defender for some extra yardage. White men, apparently, CAN jump. Bradshaw gets his first carry to the 12. He then gets the first down carry.

"Boss does his Renaldo Nehemiah impersonation." - Al (via Mal)

Boss doing his Knowshon Moreno impression. - James Craven

Whew, end of three quarters. Bradshaw starts the fourth with a carry to the 5. 2nd down pass to Burress in the end zone is high. Ward gets the handoff on 3rd and goal, and gets stuffed in the backfield. I'm not sure why they called a running play there, and we get some Manning Face. Carney's 28-yard FG attempt is "right down Broadway, or Broad Street, take your pick," and it's 30-24, Giants. They send us to break with Matchbox 20. Blech.

"Life is all about readjustments, let me tell you." - Al, after explaining a re-adjusted offensive line. Westbrook gets a couple, he's only had 50 yards total tonight. McNabb's pass to Jackson is off target, and the next one to Kevin Curtis is also off.

Hixon takes the punt return all the way to the house after breaking a couple tackles....but there's a flag for holding, and it's coming back, although the field position will still be pretty good, I think. Starts at the Philly 42, and Bradshaw gashes the Philly D for a good run -- he fumbles, but it goes out of bounds. Jacobs gets five more on the next carry, they're at the 12. Bradshaw's stuffed back on the next play. Draw play for Ward, and he's short of the first down marker -- but there's offsides on the Eagles, making it a 3rd and 2, and Al just got totally confused on what a coach would do, saying Coughlin might decline it at first.

Manning calls time out. Jacobs rumbles again to the 4, loses the ball, but he's down at the 4, according to the officials -- and Andy Reid is going to challenge it even though he's going to lose, and lose it badly. Why delay the inevitable?

"So that was a wish challenge by Andy Reid." - Al. If that's the case, then WHY DO IT? Save the time out! Jacobs "bulldozes" his way into the end zone, losing the ball again, but the touchdown signal was made already -- and Reid's gonna challenge this one too.

Now this is a call you have to challenge, not the previous one, but it looks like Reid will probably lose this one too.

And Reid loses it, touchdown, Giants. The Giants are gonna go for two to get a 14 point lead. Manning to Burress, it's broken up. 36-24, Giants.

John: "There was really no reason for that first challenge".

What? Before, he said that "Reid had to challenge" on that first one. - Mal

Makes no sense whatsoever. Demps out to the 29 on the kickoff. Westbrook carries for one, and "the Eagle crowd wonders what the hell was that play call," according to Al -- and Westbrook is reaching for his junk while he's running off the field. OW. McNabb hits Jackson again on 3rd down, all the way at the Giants' 32. McNabb has to throw off his back foot, incomplete on 2nd down. Jackson, on the slant, catches the pass and gets extra yardage inside the 10 for a first and goal.

Again, why is the ball not in that man's hands more? McNabb throws the next pass away. Was there even a receiver near it? He wasn't out of the pocket. How is that not grounding? And, in the scramble, Philly gets a delay of game call. Throw for Avant is incomplete. McNabb scrambles after the Giants' secondary holds, but only gets to the 2. Reid is going for it on 4th down.

McNabb rolls to his right, finds Kevin Curtis in the end zone, TOUCHDOWN. Akers kick is up and good, 36-31, Giants. And the Eagles still have the "Eye of the Tiger," as we go to break. That song now reminds me of those Starbucks ads with parody lyrics.

"You know one day he just might beeee-cooooooome.....supervisor!"

My mind is gone, and we get the E*Trade baby with blackberry ad, which cracks me up. "Oh....what a bad girl....relentless....hey girl, can I hit you back?"

"You know, when your name is Madison Hedgecock, shouldn't you be Madison Hedgecock III?" - Al
"No, but you should be from Nebraska. All Hedgecocks should be from Nebraska, not from North Carolina." - John
"He should be a knight!" - Al

So, it's 3rd and 1 for the G-men at the 38, Ward is short, and there's a fumble, and the Eagles say they've got it -- but the Giants hold on. They'll be punting anyhow -- and there's a penalty on the Eagles for offsides. The Eagles are very lucky that it wasn't enough for a first down. The Giants declined the penalty, and the Eagles will take it inside the 15, which is where Jackson went out of bounds.

McNabb hits the first pass for a first down, but there's a pick on the next throw -- negated by holding on Antonio Pierce. Eagles ball and a first down on the 36. McNabb has to run away from Mathias Kiwanuka, and Brent Celek drops it. McNabb rushes for seven. Reid is waiting for the two-minute warning; Donny Mac is wearing down.

"Reminds me of the Super Bowl." - Al, as we hit the two minute warning. All we need is Donny Mac puking and the epic fail of Reid time management will be complete. Pitch to Westbrook, he gets out of bounds but short of the first down. Handoff to Westbrook, and Chase Blackburn nails him short of the marker! Giants' ball!

You Eagles homers in the comments section are RELENTLESS with your anger. This is the Andy Reid Era -- bad play calling and a failure to develop a serious power running game, which most coaches will tell you is the basis of a successful team...you have to tote the rock.

How many days until Spring Training starts in Clearwater, Florida? - James Craven

Knew that was coming.

Eagles' fans and Al Michaels would like to challenge that Andy Reid knows what the hell he's doing. - Mal

Michaels would forget what he was challenging after the replay. Eli Manning QB sneaks on 4th and inches for the 1st down, and that's your game. 36-31, Giants, who stay atop the heap of the NFC East and the Eagles are now tied for third (and last) place with the Cowboys in the division.

See you next week for Cowboys-Redskins, and make sure to drop by my home spot on the weekdays sometime.

They're supposed to start next week, but you got Cowboys-Redskins and it's all of the games with the flexing. One such example is that now the Titans-Jags game next Sunday (11/16) has been switched from 1 PM to 4:15 PM.

@jfein, they will be in Dallas for the 49ers/Cowboys, instead of Giants/Cardinals, which gets Kenny, Moose, and Goose according to a The506 forum member who gets these schedules from FOX.


Then they'll do the Thanksgiving game with Seattle/Dallas, so they quickly get 2 Cowboys games. And after that certainly they will get Cowboys/Steelers so make that 3.

Eagles need a turnover right here. I'm not convinced we can come back down by 2 scores again.

JFein said...

I saw that on YouTube, mal!

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:04:00 PM  

This game is getting awfully close to being over.

ssreporters said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:05:00 PM  

@ Mal: To quote S2N, +1

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:05:00 PM  

By "readjustments" did Al mean that if your "over" wager is totally blown by half time, then double up to make up on some of the 2nd half props?

Hey Philly, remember that RUNNING GAME?

ssreporters said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:08:00 PM  

This is a lost cause.

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:09:00 PM  

No red line is going to save Andy Reid on this challenge.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:09:00 PM  

The ball started to squirt loose before but then he gained it back so yeah, Ried is channeling Norv Turner on this one (and costing his team a valuable timeout that should the Eagles comeback, would be dearly missed)

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:10:00 PM  

The replay shows Jacobs was down... but since not every part of his body was down maybe the call will be reversed. haha.

Dan said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:10:00 PM  

John: "You have to challenge"

Really John, if a trained monkey can see his knee AND elbow hit the ground before the ball comes out, do you really have to?

J said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:10:00 PM  

Stick a fork in the Eagles. Their season's done.

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:12:00 PM  

Brian Westbrook should haul himself out of Philly...honestly, if you aren't going to use him when he's healthy then he's wasting a great career away.

ssreporters said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:12:00 PM  

Another wasted replay challenge.

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:13:00 PM  

Wow, Andy's going to lose back to back challenges here.

Dan said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:13:00 PM  

Sigh, Andy, you're an idiot. Another blown timeout.

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:14:00 PM  

Well ssreporters, if the Eagles could have kept those first round picks instead of trading them away, maybe they could convert Westbrook to a wide reciever and then they'd draft Adrian Peterson or a big power stud running back.

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:14:00 PM  

two timeouts burned, no challenges left, 9:30 to play...well played Andy.

J said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:15:00 PM  

they've got big balls I tell ya...

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:15:00 PM  

These challenges appeal to the worst of this announcing crew.

Michaels will beat the rule/interpretation into the ground and Madden won't understand what the hell is going on.

Gibbon Jockey said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:16:00 PM  

Good, first good thing to happen to the Eagles in a long time.

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:16:00 PM  

John: "There was really no reason for that first challenge".

What? Before, he said that "Reid had to challenge" on that first one.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:16:00 PM  

@ James, it doesn't matter, because Reid is no different that Mike Holmgren, they just won't open up the playbook and won't use their RB. They think they can pass their way to a Super Bowl title.

ssreporters said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:18:00 PM  

This is FUCKING DESPERATION! You don't hand off to the back on the first play of a drive!?

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:18:00 PM  

@ James Craven: Not sure what's more disturbing? That kid doing that dance or the fact that that was on Nick Jr.?

Al going all George Carlin on us.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:19:00 PM  

And, ssreporters, it's the Fucking NFC East for Christ's sakes! Ram the football down their throats...

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:19:00 PM  

Another idiotic 2 pt attempt.

Down by 12 in the 4th qtr Time for the Andy Reid throw on every down offense. Oh, wait.

jg said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:20:00 PM  

As far as that girl, it was both, jfein!

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:20:00 PM  

I think DeSean Jackson is the only Eagle that showed up tonight.

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:21:00 PM  

You think it's time to trade McNabb after the season after Reid gets his ass canned?

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:23:00 PM  

Has McNabb forgotten that he has legs and feet? He plays like he'd get a dog collar shock if he passed the line of scrimmage these days.

J said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:23:00 PM  

Sigh, it's this kind of clock management that made the Phillies such heroes...

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:24:00 PM  

Al clearly has the Eagle and giving the 2.5.

Mal said...

"Now here comes the decision" - Al Michaels

What decision is there? You HAVE to go for this! Even Ried knows that.

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:25:00 PM  

Now, comes the tough part...

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:25:00 PM  

@ Mal: I also think he took the under...

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:26:00 PM  

Wow! Eye of the Tiger!

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:26:00 PM  

@jfein: Then Al's screwed the pooch and owes his man big time. He's gonna have to steal one of Madden's kidneys.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:27:00 PM  

Oh, jeez. Eye of the Tiger.

Fox ran Gonna Fly Now into the ground, now NBC ruins the entire Rocky Franchise that should have been stopped after just ONE OSCAR-WINNING BEST PICTURE!

Anyone else think Al is on his cell to his bookie right now screaming "what do you MEAN there are no prop bets remaining?!"

J said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:28:00 PM  

Now comes the tough part again. Holding them off the board with a minimum of time...

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:28:00 PM  

Andy Reid has to challenge the...oh wait. Nevermind.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:31:00 PM  

Or as Weird Al stated:

"The Ryyyyyyyyyyyyyye...or the Kaiser?"

Oh, shit. Giants recover a fumble that wasn't.

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:31:00 PM  

Giants maintain possession but the Eagles got the defensive stop, which is key.

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:31:00 PM  

Let's see: There's 3:14 left, one time out, eighty-five yards...

Could have a chance.

"Do you think Feagles can pin any deeper than the 14?" - Al Michaels

It was a 5-yd penalty so if he kicked it exactly the same, it's the Eagles ball at the nine.

And to those who have never seen Eagles games, this is where McNabb throws most of his picks..

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:34:00 PM  

Has McNabb puked in the huddle yet tonight?

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:35:00 PM  

Just when they drive you out, you get pulled back in!

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:35:00 PM  

@mal

Does the near interception count?

J said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:36:00 PM  

Gotta get this off before the warning.

"It reminds me a little of the Super Bowl" - Al Michaels

Every Eagles two-minute drill under Andy Ried reminds me of the Super Bowl.

And still nothing from Plexiglas Burgess tonight.

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:37:00 PM  

There was a little gag reflex there when McNabb was standing there watching precious seconds tick off the clock to the 2 minute warning.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:37:00 PM  

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot on 3rd and 4?!

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:39:00 PM  

They wait til the 2 minute warning to run a sweep on 3rd down????

Worst. Play call. Ever.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:39:00 PM  

Unfuckingbelieveable. Why do you run there? Why?

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:40:00 PM  

WHAT THE FUCK?!?!

Dumbass decision.

REID MUST GO!

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:40:00 PM  

I stand corrected. That. Was the Worst. Play call. Ever.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:40:00 PM  

Andy Reid-coach of the year! Running on 3rd and 4th after having a senior moment as to what a running game is the last 5 mins.

J said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:40:00 PM  

Game over

jg said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:41:00 PM  

All they had to do was run McNabb on a bootleg. Sigh, when will the Eagles finally get a competent coach?

JFein said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:41:00 PM  

How many days until Spring Training starts in Clearwater, Florida?

JamesCraven said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:42:00 PM  

Eagles' fans and Al Michaels would like to challenge that Andy Reid knows what the hell he's doing.

Mal said...
Nov 9, 2008, 11:43:00 PM  

Andy Reid=Next coach of your Iowa Hawkeyes!

J said...

Check that.

Andy Reid, next head coach of the South Beach High School Panthers.

JamesCraven said...

@james

The SBHS Panthers would rather hire an autistic 10 year old time management savant...Andy has no chance.

Well now that I've finished emulating Swearing Man outside of this blog, I would like to take this time to congratulate the New York Giants on hiring Andy Ried as a double agent coach. It clearly worked out tonight...
