NFL Game Thread: Brett Favre vs. The Big Bad Pats

Game 149: Closing in on the Iron Horse
Finally, Cano disciplined

After pummeling squeaking out a win against the Phins last week, Gang Green welcomes the Brady-less Patriots to East Rutherford today for their home opener. I’m sure Bill Belichick has prepared his team by reviewing lots and lots of film, but Brett Favre & Co. fear no Patsies.

It’s going to be a slow afternoon in Yankeeland, so comment on the J! E! T! S! here.

    The St. Louis Rams, simply put, suck.

    As to the Jets, I have no ill will towards them as Brett Favre is my favorite NFL player. Fuck the Pats.

  • Ivan

    Fuck the Pats.

    Giants Defense doesn’t may look different than last year, but has the same results. Tuck’s interception was pretty nifty,

    • Barry

      One of the best defensive plays I’ve seen in a while.

  • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    Jerricho!

  • Mike Pop

    NFC East champs are the Buffalo Bills Sorry jets fans

    • Ivan

      your right cuz the jets play in the AFC.

  • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    Favre isn’t that slow?

    • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      If Cano did that, he’d get absolutely slaughtered.

  • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

    FUCK YOU JAY FEELY!

    • Ivan

      He still has a job.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    There’s a reason why us Giants fans wanted to break Jay Feely’s kneecaps.

    God Damn, I still remember that regular season game against Seattle where he missed four fucking GW-FG’s.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    It’s really amusing how nobody goes to that dump in Queens.

    Matt Cassel went to Chatsworth HS? Same school that produced 2007 first rounders Mike Moustakas and Matt Dominguez.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Chatsworth, Porn Capital of the US.

        No, that distinction belongs to San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Eh, same thing.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

            If this acting thing works out for me, I am SO going to buy a house in San Fernando Valley.

            • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

              Go to San Diego man. So much better than LA, it’s not even funny.

    • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

      hey why don’t you join the geek squad !!!111!!!

  • Ivan

    Can’t wait for my Eagles against the Boys.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Wow the Mets’ pen sucks. Imagine if they were in the AL.

    • Manimal

      Who do you think they will land next year, Fuentes or K Rod

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        I think K-Rod. I can see someone sneaking in and grabbing Fuentes out from under them; Detroit, Anaheim, Texas, a team like that.

        • Ivan

          That’s what Omar does, he just throws money at the problem.

    • Ivan

      They’ll be the Yankees.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Bear with me on this one because this is exactly what I’m talking about when people are so idiotic in their criticisms concerning Alex Rodriguez. Peter Abraham, take it away:

    I hope that people appreciate what Jeter has done and continues to do. His many detractors lose sight of the guy’s consistency and what he means to this franchise. Years from now, Jeter and Mo will be the players people remember from this era of baseball in New York.

    No problem with that, completely agree. Now, take a look at that statement with a couple editorial notes:

    I hope that people appreciate what [A-Rod] has done and continues to do. His many detractors lose sight of the guy’s consistency and what he means to this franchise. Years from now, [A-Rod] will be the player people remember from this era of baseball.

    Does anyone disagree with that statement?

    I didn’t think so.

  • Ivan

    Man Mike Gonzalez is nasty. Wish the yanks traded Melky at it’s peak to get him.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I can’t tell you how many people called me an idiot when I was agreed with that trade rumor. MELKY FOR TEH LOOGY?!?!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Not starting Michael Pittman in fantasy.

    God I hate O.A.R., but hearing that song coming back from commercials brings back memories of a great College World Series earlier this year.

  • Manimal

    I hate how stat tracker isn’t free. Can someone who payed the 10$ please find out what my score is?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      You’re losing by 25 pts … haha just kidding. You’re down 36.

      ;)

      • Manimal

        yikes.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          The guy you’re playing got big games out of DMF and the Packers’ D.

  • Manimal

    Bad play calling. With farve as your QB you do three running plays with 3 yards to go?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Dude, NHL 09 is the bomb. Glad I traded in Madden. Best sports game I’ve ever played.

      • Manimal

        I KNOW, I can’t stop playing.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          I’m only 1-5 in my Dynasty, but each game was close. Scoring is mad hard (I have it on All-Star, or whatever one level up from Pro is). I had shuffle lines to gets some signs of life out of Scott Gomez, but Lundqvist is easily the most deserving MVP of any team I’ve ever had in a sports game.

    • Manimal

      Those kind of situations is where I love having Brandon Jacobs on my team.

  • Ivan

    Scherzer Vs. Cueto matchup today sweet.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I’m so smart starting Kurt Warner in favor of Matt Hasselbeck.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Man, my team is bad. I’m up by like, 4 pts, and my opponent still has Rothlisberger set to go tomorrow. Might be time to trade away the vets for prospects.

      • Manimal

        same. LT is available.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Jay Cutler, thank you.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      It’s a good thing I reached for SD’s D/ST.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        Unless it was Baltimore, I never felt comfortable reaching for a DEF.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Did the NFL make it a point this off-season to enforce the Illegal Formation penalty? I mean damn, ever since preseason you see at least two every game.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Greg Maddux threw 7 scoreless innings on 68 pitches today. Damn.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    I’m going to pick up Star Wars: Force Unleashed tomorrow. I played the demo, and damn, that game is sick.

    • Ivan

      yeah that game looked hot.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

        Shit, I don’t think it’s online. Fuck it then, I’m not a big fan of single-player only titles.

        • Manimal

          yeah its not. Rent it, its worth it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Check out CBS dropping We The Kings’ “Check Yes Juliet”.

  • Ivan

    Yo this Pats/Jets game is getting a lil boring.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Anybody catch the YES post-game? According to the LoHud idiots, Joe Girardi pulled Robbie Cano out of the game as a result of his lack of hustle on the deflection play, Girardi made the decision to pull Carl Pavano (he will make his next start), and Kim Jones was kinda being a douche to Cano during their interview.

    • Ivan

      Boy it’s like with A-Rod, it’s become easy to pick on Cano.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Another TD pass for Jay Cutler, awesome.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

      And Justin Upton just hit a moonshot.

    • Ivan

      Told people he will breakout this season.

  • Ivan

    Penalties killing the Jets in this drive.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      INT’s too.

      • Ivan

        That’s what you gotta live with Farve. Making dumb throws.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Not for nothing, but this game is mad boring.

    • Ivan

      word.

  • Ivan

    Can somebody tell this guy that 08 season is not long term and we don’t have to sign every big player in the world.

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/09.....128940.htm

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I do find it rather hysterical that the Yankee bashing columns went from “they signed too many big names and now are stuck with a bunch of declining older players” last year to “they didn’t sign enough big name players to long term deals” this year.

      • Ivan

        The one thing worry about the yanks in the offseason, if they overreact and listen to the media and getting their head gas.

        I mean it’s gotten to a point where it’s okay to take shots at the yanks and bring up some inrational shit.

        It’s absolute hypocrisy.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          If any GM ever makes a move because of the media/fans, they should be fired on the spot.

      • Ivan

        Like Buster onley said, if this yankee team wanna move foward, they gotta avoid big contracts and get younger.

        The Media is basically saying the opposite.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    Hey look, a Dustin Keller sighting.

  • Ivan

    Hey, Jets scored a TD. It took like eons for that happen in this game.

  • Ivan

    Jets getting ram by Lamont Jordan.

  • Steve H

    Who would you rather have, Cassell or Clemens?

    • http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

      Clemens. Younger, and has a bigger arm, so you can develop some accuracy with him.

  • Steve H

    Ryan Leaf had a big arm too. I don’t know who I’d take (caveat, I’m a Pats fan) but I was pretty impressed with Cassell’s poise in his 1st start since HS, in a hostile environment, against Favre. If you look just at combine type #’s, Cassell is very impressive, good size, mobile, arm strength. If he had gone to a different college and played (he actually almost beat out Leinart), I wonder where he would have been drafted. At least that way he would have actually gone to the combine, and I imagine would have been impressive.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Look at Mike Shannahan showing some balls.

  • Ivan

    Wow talk about a tough potential loss for the SD.

    PS: that was an awful call on the Cutler fumble.

  • Ivan

    Too bad it’s NFL rules cuz that would of been a huge play there for SD.

  • JimT

    Can you imagine that some people thought the Jets were Super Bowl timber by adding Favre. What is it something like 20 straight wins the Pats have had over the Jets?

    • Joop

      More like 3 or 4.

      • Steve H

        8 at the Meadowlands I believe

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=594331910 Jamal G.

    Inaccurate statement coupled with an utter lack of punctuation marks.
