The Giants don’t kick off against the Cowboys until 4:15pm ET, but there’s still plenty of early games to keep you occupied. Talk all you want about the football games here.

    Ki-Ki! Ki-Ki!

  • Riddering

    CBS, why do you hate me? When nothing’s going on the stream is fine. As soon as the play starts, nothing but static and green.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

      FOX is making me watch Tampa and Carolina….and you have the nerve to complain.

      • Riddering

        The man who watches FOX is responsible for his own pain!

        • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

          It’s either that or Dolphins-Patriots.

          • Riddering

            I lucked out with Colts-Titans. But I know the pain of not having a jacked-up sports package.

  • V

    Goddamnit, the Dolphins and Falcons are making the 1 pm games boring as all hell.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

      But the “Tom Brady boo-boo finger” story was EPIC!!!

      • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime (Optimovelist Primus)

        One gets the feeling Brady and Tebow could be best friends.

      • Riddering

        It’s not even a twitter trending topic. Suck on that, Brady!

    • V

      My bad, the Dolphins redeemed themselves, woohoo!!

    Dolphins v. Pats?
    Falcons v. Eagles?
    LOTR Marathon on TNT?
    Scrubs re-runs on Comedy Central?
    MW2 on PS3? Hmm.

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime (Optimovelist Primus)

      HOLY SHIT THERE’S A MARATHON HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS?!

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        Well, they’re on Return of the King now. You’ve already missed Fellowship and Two Towers.

      • Riddering

        I mentioned it on twitter this morning!

        • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime (Optimovelist Primus)

          Dude I woke up at like 11…

          • Riddering

            *shakes head*

            I think it’s been years since I slept in that late.

            • Salty Buggah

              Really? Wow

              I woke up at 1 (3 ET) in the afternoon everyday for the past week. It’s awesome but just fucks everything up. Waking up so late means staying very late too.

              • Riddering

                Well, I work full-time and if I don’t maintain a similar sleeping “schedule” on the weekend then my sleep gets all messed up and I become an insomniac.

    • pat

      How can u not be playing MW2? You must be communist.

      • Jack

        Matt is not a Communist. He may be a liar, a pig, an idiot, a Communist, but he is NOT a porn star!

        /Abe Simpson

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        If it makes you feel any better I already played this morning. I’m still pretty “meh” (up to only Staff Sgt) at the multiplayer, but I’m getting better.

        • pat

          I don’t even own it I just played at a friends house and became instantly addicted. RPD + HBS = Kill.

      • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

        Should I get mw2? Now before you just say yes, I am really not into shooter type games. I usually only play sports games, fifa, nhl, live, madden etc. Never got into any shooter game, should I make an exception and buy it?

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          I’m not huge into FPS games–I’d had another COD installment on PS2 and liked it, though–but it’s incredibly fun and engaging. Definitely get it.

          • pat

            Agreed. It might be frustrating at first when u first play multiplayer but once you get the hang of it it’s pretty awesome. I love the fact that you can mod gun as you wish and have different setups for different boards. I love MW2 much better than Halo3

            • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

              I just got the heartbeat sensor attachment for one gun. I’m pumped. I’m hoping I can get the “bling” thing, soon so I can get multiple attachments.

              • pat

                HBS is the shit, it might get a little obsolete as more people start unlocking the Ninja perk but it still gives u an advantage over noobs.

                • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

                  Word.

                  I’m much better at free for all matches than I am at team deathmatch and the other stuff.

  • Salty Buggah

    The Broncos are dominating the Chiefs but thanks to 2 Orton turnovers (a pick in the endzone, fumble at midfield…both led to a FG, the Chiefs are still in it.

    • Ivan

      Thats the Orton I know.

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

    What a play in the Saints game. I hope it stands.

  • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

    My Dad is up in Ruth’s Chris in Weehawken and Mo just walked in.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Awesome.

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime (Optimovelist Primus)

      Dude, that’s fucking awesome.

    • Salty Buggah

      That’s sweet. Your dad is lucky.

      I’m hoping that one day Mo will walk into a restaurant I’m in here in Colorado.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

      Good luck to him eating without having the steaks come back to life.

        You should hear what happened to my Dad’s water…

        • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

          No one ever said that it was turned to good wine though.

    • Riddering

      Lucky bastard!

      Oh, I mean. This is a well-deserved surprise for your father, who is no doubt a scholar and a gentleman.

    • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

      I just told my buddy.

      He said Mo? Mo Williams?

      ugh

        Melvin has been busy feeding the poor in a Bombay clinic all day.

  • Salty Buggah

    Excuse my ignorance but what does “playing possum” mean?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Playing dead.

    • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

      Playing dead I reckon.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

      Being practically blind and ugly-cute.

    • Salty Buggah

      Oh Ok. Thanks guys. The CBS dudes were saying how Brandon Marshall was playing possum when he walked off the field supposedly hurt, even though he just walked there and stood there and didn’t even hint at getting hurt.

      Also my Internet is super slow right now so I couldn’t check it on google from my iPod before anyone plays the lmgtfy card.

  • Ivan

    Michael Vick Baby!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Free Mike Vick

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/.....id=4718965

    Whoopsie. I thought the NFL was the ideal model in all sports?

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      But…but…but…the parity?

  • Salty Buggah

    Lol at Cbs. A graphic for the KC offense said, “7 yards on offense, 4 three and outs, an interception, and a partridge in a pear tree”

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Wow, I did not think that fourth down play would work.

  • Salty Buggah

    Matt Cassel had a 3.2 passer rating halfway thru the 3rd quarter

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      Holy fucking shit.

  • Salty Buggah

    Matt Cassel is absolutely terrible. He’s missing open guys

    • Salty Buggah

      Wow just terrible. Bad throws all over. Getting booed now

      • Salty Buggah

        Now he got replaced by Brodie Croyle

        • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

          His day is officially worse than anyone’s right now.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Oh come on, New Orleans. You cannot lose to the ‘Skins.

    • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

      Skins can do it baby!

      • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

        WOOT!!

  • Salty Buggah

    Thank god the Broncos are winning in a blowout because Orton just fumbled on his own 2. I actually called a safety right before the play but I guess a fumble is as bad

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      Worse, really.

      • Salty Buggah

        True.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Kiersten, you should be on this with some reporting.

    Frankie Dreamy Eyes* plays for Lara.

    *for Rebecca

    • http://kierstenschmidt.com Kiersten

      Damn, I wish I would have known about this. I didn’t do anything yesterday. I could have gone and seen Luis Luis ohHhHhHh….

      • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Melvin-To-America/193013541601?ref=nf Andy in Sunny Daytona

        I let you down. I’m sorry. I go on that page all the time, and I just noticed the story.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Nice INT.

  • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

    Damn I thought we got that kickoff back.

    • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

      Ugh the Saints throw so many fucking screens.

    • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

      Goaline defense time.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Maybe I just caught him on a bad day, but it seems like Henne can’t throw to his left or his right–the sidelines, mostly–with any sort of accuracy.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Wow. Case in point. What an awful throw. He had the dude wide open. Awful, awful throw.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        And he made up for it.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Why did Brady throw that? Dumb.

  • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

    Ugh I hate fucking Suisham. Are you kidding me? He always fucks up.

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      Un-fucking-believable.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime (Optimovelist Primus)

    WHAT THE FUCK FOX

  • http://kierstenschmidt.com Kiersten

    MIAMI’S GOT THE DOLPHINS, THE GREATEST FOOTBALL TEAM!

  • Salty Buggah

    Wow, Miami beat NE. I really thought they wouldn’t after the way NE came out on fire.

  • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

    Pats and Steelers lose, Saints come very close to losing and still could. Wild Sunday so far.

  • Salty Buggah

    Let’s go Cleveland!

  • http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/madamsteph/Sports/alg_melky.jpg Drew

    Suisham better ride around in the pope-mobile tonight.

  • Reggie C.

    Great concentration by Witten. Not a good sign for the Gmen.

  • Reggie C.

    Why can’t Eli throw a good deep ball anymore?

    • pat

      Is it his foot? Can’t put as much pressure and oomf into it?

  • pat

    GOD DAMMIT AHMAD HOLD ONTO THE FUCKING BALL.

    Why did Andre Brown have to get injured? GRRRRR

  • pat

    Oh wow, a broken CC Brown tackle. How novel.

  • Reggie C.

    Call reversal would frigging suck.

    • Reggie C.

      Yep. It sucks.

  • Michael Kay

    how much is jerry jones paying Joe Buck to keep referring to the wildcat as “the razorback”? Next week it will be “And The Vikings score a Cowboys!” and “The kick is up, thru the uprights and the Texas Stadium attempt is good! That’s 3 JERRY’S on the board for the Vikes.”

  • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

    That Saints game should be investigated to see if the ‘Skins blew it. One of the worst, most inexcusable collapses I’ve ever seen.

    I’ve already stopped watching the Giants. They’ll be blown out. They have no running game and no defense, and they only have a passing game sometimes.

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      I’ll probably check in during the econd half, though, to see if a miracle’s occurred or something.

      • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

        second half

      • Reggie C.

        START WATCHING.

        NICKS TD.

        • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

          My brother just yelled that to me.

          Still not watching until the second half.

          And I still think they probably get blown out.

          • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

            And then Dallas fumbles.

            The battle of sucky play continues.

            • Reggie C.

              C’mon Rocky.

              Watch 90 seconds. Eli’s gonna do something scream-worthy.

              • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

                I’m listening. My TV is on downstairs.

                • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

                  3 yard line.

                  If Giants go into halftime with the lead, that would be the luckiest motherfucking thing ever. And I wouldn’t care.

                • Reggie C.

                  TD !!!!

                  All Jacobs gets is 3 yards a carry these days. Lucky for us … that’s all we needed !

                • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

                  Aaaand we’re winning.

                  Giants may suck, but Dallas may suck worse.

  • pat

    I fuckin LURRRVE Hakeem Nicks.

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      Nicks does look like he has awesome potential.

      • pat

        Indeed. Having a real good year for a rookie WR.

  • Reggie C.

    KIWANUKA !!

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      Which team will play worse?

      That is the question of the ages.

  • Reggie C.

    ELI’s got to get points. Gmen have the ball at the Cowboy 38.

  • pat

    Just pound the motherfucker in there plz.

    • pat

      Kthanx.

    • Reggie C.

      Jacobs is still money when all that’s needed is a 3 yarder!

      • pat

        He usually sucks in short yardage tho, O line got a good push this time.

  • king of fruitless hypotheticals

    oh come on, its december. dallas loses.

  • Reggie C.

    I dont know how i feel over Osi’s NFL leading 4 fumble recoveries. I mean … Osi didnt actually cause the fumble. He’s got a right to be happy , but he should be happier for Kiwa.

    • pat

      Word. It’s like Runs Scored. You happen to be in the right place at the right time and usually your teammates do all the work.

  • pat

    Flozell Adams you are a piece of GARBAGE.

    • Reggie C.

      I missed that fight.

      I thought Flozell only tripped Defensive Ends out of anger…

      • V

        Yeah, I get it, he’ll be fined. But goddamnit, I want to see a Giant put some spikes somewhere where he ain’t padded.

  • Reggie C.

    THAT ONE IS ON ELI.

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      Completely.

      What a shitty play.

  • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

    WTF Eli?

  • Michael Kay

    I’m puttin that one on Gilbride, it was the Plax play that he has insisted on continuing to use even though our super tall, fast and athletic WR is no longer there to jump for them.

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

      I never like Gilride. Even in the SB year the offense was nothing special.

      I want Weis.

      • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

        Gilbride.

    • Reggie C.

      Makes me think whatever happened to Ramses Barden. This kid has got to be ready at some point to play some endzone schemes. Right??

      • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

        I know, there was all this talk about him preseason then nothing.

      • Michael Kay

        I’ve been asking myself the same thing repeatedly, and his absence is made more confusing by the fact that Moss and Hagan aren’t really getting on the field. Coughlin seems hesitant to use rookie WR’s, evidenced by the fact that Nicks has been so awesome and still isn’t involved as much as he should be.

        • Jersey

          I dunno, Nicks has been pretty involved, it seems to me. He’s got two quality guys ahead of him in Smith and Manningham, but he’s still contributing as the 3rd receiver quite a bit.

          • Michael Kay

            as he SHOULD be. Nicks is better than Manningham.

      • Jersey

        He’s been hurt, I thought…?

        • Michael Kay

          he’s been inactive quite a bit, but he hasn’t shown up on the injury report.

  • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

    You know what? I’d rather win 14-10 then 33-30.

    I know we could score if we have to, it’s stopping scoring that’s our issue.

  • Hey ZZ

    Off topic, but does anyone know of anywhere in Manhattan to get an affordable Christmas tree.

    Someone told me 49th and 9th, but wanted to see if anyone else had a good spot.

  • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster)

    No surprises there.

    Giants just aren’t a very good team.

    If they pull this out (which I really doubt) it’s only because Dallas sucks worse.

  • Michael Kay

    gosh it must be awesome to have red zone plays that the defense isn’t expecting…..

  • Reggie C.

    That’s why we’re the GMEN and their the cowboys!

  • pat

    HOLY SHIT!!!!!!

  • dkidd

    that’s a touchdown. nothing conclusive in the replay

  • Michael Kay

    OK Gilbride, you finally scored on a pass to Jacobs. That was AWESOME! Now never do it again please.

    • pat

      He looked like freaking Ladanian Tomlinson with that running catch and YAC.

      A really big and slow LT.

  • Michael Kay

    ok guys, when they need, lets say 14 yards for a first down, you don’t have to let them get it all at once….just puttin that out there.

  • Michael Kay

    here’s a good test, 3rd & 14, try to NOT let them get 14 yards.

  • Michael Kay

    see here’s the thing, the defense clearly needs to practice against like a college team’s offense, working against gilbride’s offense on a 3rd and long will teach you nothing. Gilbride would NEVER go for 14 yards on a 3rd & 14, he’d have tried to turn a 5 yard screen into 14 yards.

  • Reggie C.

    How did Bradshaw escape that pile?

    AMazing!

  • Reggie C.

    Where’s my grounding call?

  • Reggie C.

    TAKING IT TO THE HOUSE !!!

    HIXON BABY!!!

  • pat

    BOOM HEADSHOT

    What is it with Buck and his need for some baseball references? I miss it too but damn.

  • Reggie C.

    Corey Webster … wtf!
