I know I’ve been AWOL the past 2 weeks. I guess I’ve just been nursing a badly broken heart caused by my MAN Brett Favre not getting to face the Super Patriots this Sunday. I really thought there was no way in hell that the Packers would lose to the Giants on that Bitch of a Freeze day in Green Bay. I’m still asking myself how Brett made that last throw after avoiding that kind of decision making the whole year. I’ll be honest with you all, I can’t stand the Giants and Eli Manning. Eli looks like that Dufus Kid in High School with athletic abilities who drooled when they fell asleep in English Composition or passed out shortly before 1am at the Homecoming Football party just as the Queen arrived to give the QB a Victory Gift BJ! I have been waiting for midnight to strike so we can get back to the Eli I know and love that throws interceptions at just the wrong moment and has trouble looking like a leader of MEN when he’s getting pressure up the middle. The rest of the Giants don’t seem to understand that the rest of the country wouldn’t be talking about them if Cowboy WR Patrick Clayton catches 2 passes in their meeting in Dallas a few weeks ago. They were dead in the water that game and all of a sudden they are in the Super Bowl.

The Patriots come into town with the whole ‘Spygate’ thing being turned into the ‘Warren Commision’. Doesn’t Arlen Spector, shown above, have better things to worry about (like finding out more dirt on the Bush Administration) than some Football Dynasty doing some extra ‘Scouting work’ on there opponents. I mean really? Go straighten out the desperate Job Situation in Western, P.A. before you jerk off to tapes of NFL practices made by some video hack fresh out of Grad School. So what if the Patriots cheated a little, who in this league doesn’t. They are all basically Used Car Salesman with much better bank accounts. It’s just pissing everybody off that the Patriot players actually know how to take information from the video room to the playing field and come up with Victories!

In terms of the game itself tomorrow I like the fact that the weather will be reasonable for a change. This will mean the Pats will probably get back to more of their 4-5 WR sets with Brady flinging the ball all over the Giants secondary. This is the one area which is a clear mismatch and one the Pats will take advantage of very often tomorrow. The only way I can see the Giants covering up for that is by getting a great pass rush, which they are capable of doing. The Pats O-Line has been excellent all year with the exception of a game or two and I don’t see them letting their Cover Boy QB get knocked around while the whole world is watching. I think Randy Moss is going to come back with a couple of TD’s tomorrow and make a play or two that will be highlight worthy.

When it comes down to coaching you gotta love the Belichek factor. He is almost impossible to beat when given 2 weeks to prepare for a team. I also think the fact that these two squads just saw each other favors the Pats more so than the Giants. Belichek and Co. are not going to let Eli Manning sling the ball around like he did in N.Y. I expect the Pats to get a couple of picks in this game, one of which being a HUGE INT at just the right ELI Time! It is true that the Giants may be able to run the ball on the Pats. After all the Pats linebacking core are getting up there in age and have been showing signs of fatigue as the season has progressed. If the Giants can get on a roll running the ball, this game could stay close with the 4th quarter being a grand finale. In the end though I see the Patriots pulling away from the Giants in the late 1st half or early 3rd quarter and winning this in a mini-blowout. The only way I see the Giants with a chance to Win the game straight up is for them to get an early kickoff return or Brady int. return for a touchdown and then for a costly injury or just a one in a million performance from RB Bradshaw or Jacobs coupled with a complete meltdown in the Patriot D-Line. In other words I just don’t see it happening.

The point spread on this game is currently at -12 for the Pats. I don’t think taking the Giants is such a ‘Crazy Bet’, as anytime you are getting that many points in an NFL game you are going to be on the winning side more times than not, but tomorrow I just feel a ‘Mini BlowOut’ coming from that cute little cover boy who was asking early in the week, “Why such a low score for our offense Plax?” “Is Plax playing Defense?”. That prediction of a 23-17 Giants victory by Plaxico Burress in which he didn’t show enough respect for Brady and the Pat offense may not mean much to other teams or players in this day and age, but to a former 6th round pick who everybody at some point along the way has said isn’t enough is just the kind of thing Tom Brady will use to match Joe Montana with 4 Super Bowl Rings and crown himself “The Best QB Ever”!

Why New England? And not Mass? Or Boston?Cause when they started, they sukced so bad they needed 6 States to half fill the stadium and they hoped to draw from the Region. Also, they were lobbying to get money for a stadium and were playing one State against another. The generic name gave them negotiating stregnth with Massachusetts.They have come a long way to lose a second time to the almighty GIANTS!!!!

Dude,Too many doobies for me. You are ccorert. I saw them play as the Boston Patriots in 68 or 69. But they did suck. Brady fumbles and throws interceptions today, sits on sidelines with a crying towel over his head. Madonna comforts him with a lap dance and wardrobe malfunction.
