I love my little rural vacations because there’s no cell service, no internet, and the satellite TV goes in and out when there’s a bit of weather - and if you were following the news over the last week, there was quite a bit of “weather” in the Midwest - but 12 days is about my limit and I’m actually glad to be back in L.A. with a ton of emails and messages to delete.

Anyway, there were some games the last two weekends. Some teams won, other teams lost but the big news is that my fantasy football team chose our league’s Super Bowl to go absolutely cold. After a season average over 100 points, we scored 42 points in the big game!

The other big news is whether or not it is the Giants’ responsibility to field a their starters on Saturday against the Patriots in what amounts to a “meaningless” game for them.

What idiot came up with this debate?

Of course it’s the Giants responsibility to play their starters on Saturday against the Patriots. Forget that I bleed Big Blue and that I can’t stand the Pats. The Giants are a fucking professional NFL football team. It’s their job to win games, not rest for the playoffs. Football is a game of heart. Resting is heartless.

It’s not as if Eli and the G-Men are a sleek, offensive powerhouse clicking on all cylinders going into the playoffs and could stand having a week’s rest to regroup from the vicious regular season. They are a wild card team riddled with questions and led by the retarded Manning. They might be making the playoffs but this isn’t a Super Bowl team. The best thing for their playoff chances is to beat the Patriots, gain some confidence and momentum, both of which are incalculably advantageous going into the post season.

I haven’t done a study but I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that the convention of resting players going into the playoffs results in less playoff wins.

So please Tom Coughlin, please play the game on Saturday as if it means something because it does. It means that you’ve got some fucking stones. This is my hope.

However, my prediction is that you will not. You will rest the starters, the team will lose to the Pats, go on to lose in the wild card game and you will lose your job.

Just remember, it doesn’t have to be this way.

(In what could turn out to be an ironic twist to this story, the Patriots B Team beat the Giants 27-20 in the pre-season.)
