My youth in New York gave me two things: my hot chick cynicism and a begrudging love of the New York Giants. Gawd, the post-Simms/L.T. era in the 90’s was mediocre at best. There was that one good season in 1993 but other than that, it felt like a decade of three-and-outs.

The Dave Brown-Danny Kanell QB connection wasn’t cutting it and when Kerry Collins finally directed their way to the Big Game in 2000, they got waxed by the Ravens. Once again, three-and-out.

When the whole Manning drama was playing out three years ago, I screamed, “STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THAT MANNING BOY!”

And did they listen? Nope. I’m convinced it was because I’m a girl. Forget for a second that Philip Rivers has much more poise and heart than Eli but the thing that really gets my panties in a bunch is that the first round pick they traded with Rivers to the Chargers turned out to be Shawne Merriman and the third pick turned out to be Nate Kaeding, two Pro Bowlers.

YEEE!

As a fan, I have to look at the positives. And as far as I can see, there are none. Tiki Barber’s retired. Michael Strahan has left a gap in the defense as wide as the one in his mouth. Will Demps is way too sexy for me and his dislocated shoulder. Coach Tom Coughlin will have a tough time keeping the team focused and together.

Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. Osi Umenyora and Mathias Kiwanuka look to lead a defense which would be a lot better if Strahan decided to play another year. Plaxico and Shockey are dangerous if their heads are on straight. And hopefully Kevin Gilbride will have all the solutions for Manning’s many deficits. It’s not like the NFC East is going to super tough. The Eagles depend solely on McNabb’s repaired knee and the Redskins are at best a .500 team which leaves the G-Men in a spot to slug it out with the Cowboys for the top spot.

Again, though, that’s the glass half-full scenario. Reality check tells me to get ready for another year of three-and-outs.

By the way, I love this kid. Not only is he dead on the money in his assessment of the Giants team chemistry, he’s got a totally cute southern accent, mild Parkinson’s and one of those serial killer basements. Hot.

I think you’ll be seeing much more of Kige Ramsey, aka: YouTube user SlyFox4569, a rising media star if I ever saw one, this year. Does anyone else think he’s sort of a cross between Christopher Walken and Hank Hill?
