Open Thread: 2010 Pledge Drive reminder

Yankees have no obvious favorite to replace Eiland

Run and make your pledges now! (AP Photo/Peter Morgan)

With the season unfortunately over, we can move on to some important business. Every year for the last three we’ve run a pledge drive during the season to raise money for a charity close to the Yankee family. Two years ago we raised $1,050 for The Jorge Posada Foundation and last year we raised $1,500 for Joe Torre’s Safe At Home Foundation. It’s our one good deed for the year.

This year we selected Curtis Granderson‘s Grand Kids Foundation, which is an educational-based organization that helps purchase books and school supplies for needy families, and also provides equipment and facilities to baseball programs that help keep inner city kids off the street. You can learn much more about the foundation at it’s official website.

The idea is simple, readers pledge a certain amount for each time Grandy reached base this year, and at the end of the year we collect all the money and ship it over Grand Kids as one large donation. If you’re relatively new to the site or just missed the original post promoting the pledge drive, now’s your chance to get in on the action.

Granderson reached base 189 times this season (125 H, 61 BB, 3 HBP including playoffs), so a pledge of just $0.10 per time on base will cost you just $18.90. It’s that easy, and you’re more than welcome to pledge more or less than that. If you want in, just shoot me an email at mike (at) riveraveblues (dot) com with something like “2010 Pledge Drive” in the subject line. Makes it easier to organize on my end. I’ll get back to you with the details and go from there. It’s a piece of cake, and every little bit counts. Best of all, your pledge is tax deductible!

Once you’re done emailing me your last minute pledge, use this sucker as your open thread. The Giants are in Dallas to take on the Cowboys tonight on MNF, so that should be fun. You can talk about that or whatever you want, just don’t be a jerk.

    So Captain Cocktober has two ankle fractures but hasn’t been ruled out for next week yet. Am I the only one who thinks that Tarvaris Jackson gives the Vikings a better chance of winning at this point?

    Side note: As a non-Minnesota fan, it’s kinda fun watching Brett Favre Cal Ripken the Vikings. (I only hope I don’t have to watch Derek Jeter Cal Ripken the Yankees over the next few years. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.)

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime-Mrs. OBP Jesus Maquinito

      I think Jets fans may have been the first to realize that Favre wasn’t, exactly, good any more.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

        Yeah. There were some Packers fans who probably did, but most of them were in denial.

      • http://twitter.com/Brad_Toughy Brad Toughy

        He was pretty damn good in 2009 if you missed that season. He wasn’t terrible with the Jets when he was healthy.

        He’s not the talent he once was, players rarely get better as they age, but when he’s healthy, he’s still pretty good.

        I think too many people underestimate how much of an effect injuries have on players. LaDainian Tomlinson looked slow and done (for the Chargers) but when the Jets provided him with a competent O-line and let him heal up, he’s back to being a very good back.

        Favre doesn’t help himself playing hurt. But what he does accomplish is to fool fans into thinking he’s done because he’s playing at less than 100% and people don’t take that into account.

      • CP

        Favre has actually been pretty good when he’s healthy. He hasn’t been healthy this year and wasn’t healthy in the second half of the season with the Jets.

    • FIPster Doofus

      What Favre has done on the field (198.5 YPG, seven TDs, 10 INTs, 68.0 rating) clearly isn’t worth the distractions the Vikings have had to deal with. It’s almost the halfway point of the season, too, so I doubt Favre will improve much as a banged-up 41-year-old in the midst of a firestorm of controversy.

      Minnesota should send him home and play Jackson.

      • Januz

        What kills the Vikings is they probably have the best Running Back in the NFL in AP, awesome receiving threats in Harvin & Moss, a great Offensive Line, and are getting Sidney Rice back, and likely will not make the playoffs because of Favre. Seeing Favre exposed as the phoney he is makes me happy. Right now the best team in the NFL? The Black & Gold, the six time Super Bowl Champions, my Pittsburgh Steelers!.

        • FIPster Doofus

          It’s either the Steelers or the Jets. Pick your poison.

          • Januz

            The one thing that gives the Steelers the advantage over the Jets & Ravens is Big Ben. Having a proven big game QB, instead of Sanchez & Flacco, may be the one thing that gives my team Title #7.

            • CP

              “Proven Big Game QBs” are over rated. You know what they were when they won their first title? Talented but unproven QBs.

              • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

                And Roethlisberger himself in 2005 was a talented but unproven QB whose team won the Superbowl in spite of him.

                He wasn’t good in that game against the Seahawks.

                • Januz

                  He certainly performed well against the AFC Title Game The Colts, and of course was excellent against Arizona in the Super Bowl in 2009.

                  • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

                    I will now call them “The AFC Title Game The Colts”.

                    Thank you, Januz.

    No effing way did the Mariner’s not know about Adams. Good cover story but it’s obvious that Smoak was perferred. At least somehow they convinced Cash that there is something that is too much for a rental.

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime-Mrs. OBP Jesus Maquinito

      Well, given that they didn’t know that about Leuke (or didn’t care), I wouldn’t entirely put it past them

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

      The question is, was Smoak preferred over Montero on his merits alone, or was he preferred because his acquisition thinned the prospect stock of a division rival?

      Or a combination of the two?

      • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

        Probably both leaning towards division rival. Montero has the better bat and for a team like the Mariner’s any talent especially batting wise would be beneficial.

        But Smoak is a good prospect in his own right would hurt the Rangers twice if all goes right.

      • Sweet Dick Willie

        That very well could be. Smoak on the Mariners + Smoak NOT on the Rangers.

        Kind of like Tex on the Yankees + Tex NOT on the Sux.

            When you’re a last place team you need to improve your team as much as possible. The Mariners don’t need to worry about weakening the Rangers, they first need to worry about putting up more than 1.2 runs a game. Not wanting to trade Johan Santana to an AL team led the Twins to get zero in return. Shit like that happens all the time and burns teams. Get the most you can for your asset to improve yourself.

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

              See how much more logical you sound when you spell it out?

      • vin

        I could see not dealing him to a bitter rival (Yanks-Sox, eg). But they have to make the best move possible.

        I really think this is the M’s way of trying to convince everyone that they didn’t agree to a deal in principle, then shop it around to other clubs.

        If Jack Z and his staff had only read DOTF every night, they would know Adams had been injured for the previous 6+ weeks.

        • vin

          Also, I think nearly everyone here would prefer they include Nunez instead of Adams anyway.

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

          But in this instance, you’re specifically dealing him to a bitter rival in a gambit to take material from them and then have them lose Lee in the offseason.

          It makes sense.

          • vin

            It does make sense. However, I don’t see TX-Sea being “bitter” rivals to the point where they’d be so opposed to making deals with one another (like yanks-sox, mets-phils, dodgers-giants, etc).

            I get it, but what if the Rangers win it all this year, and either re-sign Lee, or use their new-found stature to ensure long-term success?

            Last year the reports were that the Jays weren’t too keen on the idea of dealing Doc to the Yanks. I think it was a good move in that case because the Yanks with Doc and CC would be a mortal lock playoff team for the next 4+ years.

              That’s the gamble.

  • first time lawng time

    Looking back on the season, it actually was pretty good. I wouldn’t say great, but it was definitely good. The only things I didn’t like about it were that awful September, watching Jeter and his 65% ground ball rate everyday (harsh, I know) and watching them completely fall off a cliff when the calendar turned to August. Then there was Tex’s terrible start, injury finish, A-Rod’s down year, and the whole pitching in the second half that really sucked.

    But there were alot of positives. First of all, I enjoyed watching Cano play this year. Then there was wwatching Siwsher and Gardner in the first half. Pre-injury Andy. Phil Hughes in April. Javy from May-July, Granderson post-long, and watching CC get 20. (yeah it’s a dumb stat, but you have to admit it was pretty cool). There were also many fun games to watch back in June during interleague. I also went to the stadium for the first time!

    All in all, yeah they got knocked out in the ALCS, but considering they should have been swept, you have to ssay they had a pretty good year. Saying this season was a failure is being a spoiled brat. Technically they failed at their goal, but they were still fun to watch and just appreciate only 1 team in the AL was better.

    I enjoyed this year, and thought they did a tremdnous job. Considering they had injuries, their “star” players had bad years and the awful pitching in the 2nd half, seeing them have 95 wins in the AL east and getting knowcked out in 6 games in the ALCS is pretty impressive.

    • Jerome S

      I get the impression that the entire team really clicked this year.
      But not all at the same time.
      Seriously, in the first half it was “ZOMG our pitching is awesome but we need a DH and our bullpen sucks like Arizona.” Then in August the pitching kinda fell apart but the offense killed, and then in September the whole thing went to sh*t except we realized that the bullpen was rockin’ it.

      Could you imagine if all of the good things happened at the same time?

      • first time lawng time

        That’d be sick. It looked like it did in Minnesota, but then it fell apart again.

        I personally enjoyed watching them until Steinbrenner died…that game seemed like the turning point in the season before everything kinda fell apart. I mean they had a sick July, then All-star break, then they won the Steinbrenner thing, then it seemed like everything kinda went down hill.

        Yet despite the awful second half, they still managed 95 wins and to almost win the best division in baseball. Huh.

        • Jerome S

          They were 39-35 in the second half.

          August was actually pretty good – some tough losses made it seem bad – but as I recall there was an eight game winning streak between August and September. But September as a whole was nothing short of shit. 13-17.

        • vin

          ” I mean they had a sick July, then All-star break, then they won the Steinbrenner thing, then it seemed like everything kinda went down hill.”

          You know what else happened post-ASB? Javy fell off a cliff, AJ didn’t rebound, Andy got injured, and Hughes scuffled.

          The team was rolling early on because the starters were doing a good job (except Javy). Then when AJ started struggling, Javy picked up the slack. But the team had a hard time overcoming 3 months of poor performance/extended absence from 4 of their starters.

          • first time lawng time

            Yeah. That was the major problem. But I also remember them sucking in Sep. with RISP and sometimes getting hits at all (that Texas series stands out to me).

            September was awful: terrible SP, Mo’s blown saves, extra innings heartbreakers, watching Chad gaudin on a daily basis, and RISP woes.

            I really really did not like September at all.

            • vin

              You know what I think was the biggest problem in September?

              The schedule.

              They played some really good teams. The worst teams (record-wise) that they played were Baltimore, Oakland and Toronto. We all know how tough Baltimore was in September, Oakland was a .500 team this year, and Toronto was 8 games over .500 in a brutal division, with a tough offense and talented pitching.

              That, combined with the fact that the Yanks were caught in-between a guaranteed playoff berth and nearly missing the playoffs made life tough. Girardi did the right thing by not running his guys into the ground, but the nature of the schedule never gave the team a break.

            It’s actually pretty fun to watch them. Have you ever been to the Garden to see a game? I went there once and CC was there too.

            Also, don’t root for them to make the playoffs or win or anything, because you’ll be disappointed. Just enjoy watching the sport and when they play like crap it’s because they’re drunk (no seriously I know a guy) and you learn to just laugh at it.

        Cashman’s comments to the effect of “some of my people think he’s ready, but he’ll have to prove it,” make me think this isn’t possible. The Yankees will say he has a chance to make it, but I doubt it.

        • vin

          I can’t see Cashman NOT having a legitimate DH option heading into ST. The Yanks don’t win ballgames because they bank on young players taking every opportunity available. They rely on veterans to set the tone, and hope the young guys can fill in when needed.

          • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

            They didn’t get a vet to fill in the 2B spot instead of Cano. Or Gardner in left. The proven Bay or Holliday was available. Hughes too was a large unknown when instead you can have Lackey hindsight aside.

            • Carlosologist

              They had Womack but he was terrible so Cano got the call.

              They went with Gardner because A) many in the organization felt he could handle it B) he was going to be the 9th hitter anyway, and C) he was going to at least play very good defense.

              They didn’t go in to last year with Hughes in the rotation (not publicly anyway). They had numerous guys who could duke it out to try to earn the 5th starters spot.

              They weren’t going to throw around 150+ million dollars to fill the 5th starters spot, and move Granderson to 9th.

              They used their resources wisely.

    anybody think the offseason moves will be any different than simply signing lee/pettitte (cross fingers) and calling up jesus? i don’t really see a lot of room for many new players outside of a trade but i’d love to see them nab rafael soriano too

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      If they get Lee then it’s jsut bench and possible bullpen.

      If no Lee then expect a lot of shit to go on. Not that I wouldn’t mind, rumors are fun.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

      Signing Lee and Pettitte (or any other 5th starter, for that matter) will burn our entire budget. We’ll be above 220M at that point.

      There’s no room for Soriano or anything else unless we force Pettitte into retirement and give the 5th starter spot to Joba/Nova/Mitre/some other pre-arb player making peanuts.

      • mike c

        my crude calculations give me a committed payroll (including jeter and mo) of 172M, does that 220M figure include luxury tax or is that just estimated?

        • http://twitter.com/dpatrickg Dirty Pena

          http://mlbcontracts.blogspot.c.....60040.html

          If Jeter/Pettitte/Lee/Mariano make ~70M, and Joba, Hughes, and Logan due for arbitration raises, it’s right around 220M

          • mike c

            ah i c. didn’t factor in the arb rates. although if marte is cut loose would his 4MM still be on the books for 2011 budget?

            • vin

              Yes. He’s not breaching his contract or anything. This isn’t the NFL where you can axe injured players at no penalty.

        • vin

          They’re on the hook for 144 mil.
          Figure 55 million for Mo, Jeter and Lee.
          That’s 199.
          4 mil to Igawa,
          5 mil for arbitration raises.
          Another 1 mil for pre-arbitration raises.
          That leaves us at 209 million.
          If Pettitte re-signs, that would take the team to around 220. Maybe a bit more depending on how badly they want Andy to return.

            • Esteban

              Whoa, but then the Royals have to pick up some of the tab, no?

    • FIPster Doofus

      I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out what the Yankees will do about catcher and DH, which are tied together because of Posada’s inability to play defense. Are the Yanks going to continue to ride it out with Posada and Cervelli, or will they sign a defensively capable vet to catch most of the time? If they do choose the Jorge and Cervelli route again, would they then add a veteran DH or just let the old guys (mainly Posada and A-Rod) and Montero rotate there?

      Speaking of Montero, his oncoming presence makes it even tougher to predict what will happen. He’ll be up, but when? That’s the question.

      • vin

        My money is on them signing a Thames-type DH, with the knowledge that Jorge would only catch 3X a week, and DH 2-3X a week. Cervelli will catch the remainder of the time.

        However, once either Cervelli, Posada, or the DH goes down, Montero will be called up to fill the void. Hopefully he’s doing his part in SWB.

      • Esteban

        And we still don’t know how much of a catcher Jesus will be. People ask, well how much worse than Posada can he be? I think it’s possible that he’s much worse than Posada still, but I have no idea because I’ve never seen him (has anyone here seen a game he’s played?). I think a big part of the decision to bring him up will be how much confidence they have in him as a catcher.

        That said, I think the Yankees stay with Jorge and Cervelli to start the season at least.

        • FIPster Doofus

          Montero’s allegedly subpar defense definitely complicates matters further. I’ve never seen him play either, but supposedly the kid’s pretty awful behind the plate.

          • Esteban

            I hope he’s not awful, but I haven’t seen a scouting report that’s talked about his defense in a positive light. Everything I’ve heard is he’s a 1B/DH at best. The scouts could be proven wrong, obviously, but I’m not optimistic about it.

      • mike c

        if the money’s already been spent on starting pitching, i’d roll the dice on jesus and hope posada doesn’t mind DH’ing a lot of the time. i’d even take molina all day over cervo

      • Stratman9652

        I just can’t see them spending money/prospects on a DH or backup catcher who they wont have use much use for when Montero comes up. Until Motero comes up they need a DH of some sort but once he does it will be kind of redundant if everyone is right in assuming a Posada/Montero DH/C rotation. Does Thames come back next year? If he does that probalem is sort of solved.

        They will still need a second catcher until Montero comes up and once he does they still need that catcher in a much lesser role. Chances are Cervelli sticks in that role. As long as he stays at a limited playing time role he seems acceptable, especially if he works on his defense in the offseason. Like I said I can’t see tacking on payroll for someone different as long as he doesn’t get the rediculous amount of playing time he did this year.
        The question is does Montero get as much playing time (at C) as we expect? The general idea seems to be 60% Posada 60% Montero 20% Cervelli (or whoever) or so. The times that Jesus starts at C, Posada is DH and vice versa. You could have either DH the Cervelli starts. Thats quite a bit for a rookie catcher. Wow this is alot to figure out.

  • first time lawng time

    Looking back on this year, here are my favorite things/moments (in no particular order):
    1. My first game at the new stadium (first time at any YS since the 90s)
    2. Robinson Cano
    3. I remember there were many enjoyable games during June. I remember them, because it was during interleague and they were on the West Coast and they were late games and I had finals lol. I remember the Arizona series so well, it was probably my favorite series just because of the context it was in. In game 1, I remember it was a late start, and I had my last day of school (an English final) the next day at like 7 ish in the morning, but of course I stayed up for the whole thing. I remember feeling sick, lying in bed and watching AJ BUrnett crap himself. And then when I woke up in the morning I was exhausted, didn’t feel well, they had lost the night before and I had take an 2.5 English exam with an essay and stuff. I wore my Robinson Cano t-shirt and there was some jerky Red Sox fan in my class and he says to me, “So how’d they do last night?” and I just looked at him and told him to shut the hell up lol. Yeah I’m not a morning person lol.

    • Jerome S

      Yeah those were some awesome games. School just got out, and the game didn’t start till TEN. I miss that.

      • first time lawng time

        See, that’s why I liked west coast trip games. Staying up late when everyone else is sleeping, if they play poorly you can go to sleep, and in the morning you’re exhausted but if they win it’s totally worth it!

  • first time lawng time

    Then, probably my favorite game of the season, the infamous game in Arizona with Javy vs DOntrelle WIllis. I remember it being a late start again and when I was watching WIllis pitch in the first inning, I was crying. I was laughing so hard I had tears down my face. Then Javy pitched poorly when he was up and they were losing and they played badly, but then I remember I watched it with my sister and I don’t remember how, but I remember they tied it and set into to extras. And I remember Grandy homered and I started freaking out but it was like 1 in the morning and everyone else in my house was sleeping lol. THen Mo came to bat and everyone was laughing and my sister and I were cracking up. Then in the bottom half, Mo got the bases loaded and my sister and I were like oh God, this is so sad. But then he got out of it and after the strikeout my sister and I started freaking out. It was amazing.

    Memories of games like those, I mean watching them and the context in which they were watched, makes the season fun for me.

    Just thought I’d share.

    • Xstar7

      That was a good game. And I think it meant alot to Mo. Now he can he say has closed a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

            My unscientific reasoning on Romo and Eli is identical:

            They’re slightly overrated by the fans of their teams, and fairly underrated by fans of other teams.

            Giants and Cowboys fans think Eli and Romo are great QB’s (they’re not) and fans of the other 29 teams (respectively) think they suck (they don’t).

            • poster on another computer who happens to be a deuce bag

              As a Giants fan, I think Eli is a very good QB that most teams would should like to have on their team.

              Bt I’m no fool; I realize that there are plenty of better QB’s out there. That said, the G-men are lucky; they finally have some stability at the QB position.

              • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

                Pretty much, yeah.

                Neither Romo or Eli are wart-free, but they’re both QBs you can win with if your team is solid.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

        Yeah, I’d say Eli’s just “rated” at this point. I don’t think people really think he’s a top 8 QB, but I doubt anybody thinks he’s not in the top 15 either, so he’s just somewhere in that 8-12 “Very solid, does what you want, but won’t win games all by himself” area.

    But the 7-foot-1, 325-pound Shaq chose to initially dispute the premise that he’s not even the most famous athlete to ever live in Sudbury.
    “I know about that,” he said. “But I think I surpassed Babe Ruth. That’s what I think.”
    When that statement was greeted by an incredulous look and the question of whether youth basketball leagues will someday be named after (italics) him (end italics), Shaq pressed on.
    “I’m just saying, how do you remember people — for their records or their championships?” he said. “I got both, too. How many rings he got?”
    Told that the Babe had won seven World Series titles, Shaq, lord of four rings, shook his head.

    “Ha. Got him,” he went on, breaking into a wide smile and evoking laughter. “Got him. There’s always a loophole, baby.”

    Shaq is pretty awesome.

      Haha yeah he is.

    • FIPster Doofus

      hahaha

    • Xstar7

      Wilt Chamberlain would destroy Shaq if they played one on one. Wilt Chamberlain could handle the ball as well as a point guard even though he’s a center. Shaq’s just big and tall. And I stopped liking him after he joined the Celtics.

      • http://mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

        I don’t know about 1 on 1, but if Shaq played in Wilt’s era he would have averaged 60 a game for 10 years.

        • Xstar7

          Perhaps but so could many players from today’s era. That’s what Makes Wilt such a great player. He played like a Man among boys and is essentially the Babe Ruth of Basketball.(and so is Jordan, they share that title I think.) I mean in 1962 he averaged 50 POINTS PER GAME over that season. Can you imagine if someone did that today?

  • Hall and Nokes

    56 total yards for Dallas. heh.

    • Reggie C.

      The Cowboys are totally in trouble if Tomo cant come back in the second half.

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Hakeem the effing dream.

  • Hall and Nokes

    So much to like about this game so far. And so much to not like.

  • Reggie C.

    Hakeem Nicks > Miles Austin ?

    Who woulda thunk it?

  • http://mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

    Scott Sisson was the worst football player in history. His one year with the Pats he hit 14 of 26 field goals. He was an astonishingly horrible 8-13 on field goals between 20-29 yards.

    All of that said, if he were to play on a Monday night, Jon Gruden would not find a single bad thing to say about him.

    • Hall and Nokes

      Laughed.

    Random Question: Am I the only one that thinks Kim Jones is hot? >_> <_< *runs*

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Too late buddy, you got some competition.

      • Kit

        Isn’t Dela G like completely in love with her, or am I confusing him for someone else?

        • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

          No, you’re right.

        • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

          Yup I think it’s him.

    • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

      Meh. She’s average, IMO. And the people that dress her for YES do not do a lot to help her cause.

    • Xstar7

      IF YOU THINK THAT KIM JONES IS HOT THAN YOUR A guy with different tastes in women than me but I respect your opinion.

  • Hall and Nokes

    Really liking Justin Tuck’s brother Jason. Why was nobody talking about this guy?

  • https://twitter.com/Carcillo_ Carcillo

    Well done, Cowboys.

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Should be like 21-0.

    • Reggie C.

      Eli’s looking pretty good huh. I love how balanced the offense looks right now.

      • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

        So who did you start? Looks like there’s no mistake either way.

        • Reggie C.

          At QB this week … BEN ROETHLESBERGER. I thought the Cowboy D was gonna step up in this truly must-win game. So far … damn. Eli is going to out-point Ben, but i traded for Ben on the cheap.

          My WRs: Mike Wallace, Miles Austin. Flex: Steve Smith (gmen)
          – Dude. Romo going down KILLS Austin’s wr1 value. KILLS ME in my league.

          • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

            Yikes that does suck. Romo may miss the whole season.

  • Hall and Nokes

    If it were the Cowboys with 3 turnovers and the Giants with 0, we’d be in Raiders-Broncos territory right now.

  • Hall and Nokes

    Did Tynes train with the East Germans over his week off? Look at these kickoffs!

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    This better be a fumble.

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Yes it is!

  • Reggie C.

    HOLY SHIT.

    Romo has a fractured left clavicle. That’s really too bad, and that’s coming from a GMEN fan.

  • http://mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

    So is Childress going to use Favre’s injury as a way to get him out of the lineup?

  • Hall and Nokes

    That kickoff was football porn.

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    And the deflection gods die for the Giants…

  • Reggie C.

    John Kitna … wow. I wonder if Dallas goes all out to trade for a better QB or does Jerry Jones throw in the towel for the season? Shaun Hill is a good trade target.

    • https://twitter.com/Carcillo_ Carcillo

      I think this is the first time I’ve seen Jon Kitna play football since 2003.

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      Send a second rounder for Vick, Reid would probably do that.

    • http://mystiqueandaura.com Steve H

      Trade deadline already passed.

      • Reggie C.

        Ughhh. Rough. I guess its official: Miles Austin, my second round pick, is going to become Larry Fitzgerald 2.0.

  • Hall and Nokes

    I’m so tired of Gruden saying “New York Giants” in full. Nobody’s confusing these guys with the NL champs, dude.

  • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

    Gmen receivers are just too good when they actually catch the damn ball.

  • mustang

    I told someone here last week that the Giants would help me recover from the Yankees lost by killing the Cowgirls. They told me that the Cowgirls were to talent to lose at home to the Giants. Say what? This Cowgirl team SUCK ASS !!!!!!

    I’m sooooooo loving this it almost makes up for the Yanks almost.

    • http://twitter.com/iiKeane JobaWockeeZ

      +100

    • mustang

      I mean damn the Giants were handing them the game in the 1st and still.

      I love watching Jerry Jones when they are losing. How about that prediction that the Super bowl was going to be a Dallas home game?
      NOOOOT!

    • Xstar7

      I’m not even a football fan but knowing that the giants are doing well does help a bit with the Yankees losing and all. And I could care less about how the Jets are doing

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    So, is Wade axed after the season, or does the injury to Romo give him extra security?

    • http://twitter.com/dpatrickg Dirty Pena

      Do you think there’s any chance he lasts the season? I don’t.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cecala Joseph Cecala

    This is just sad, so much for the Dallas amazing defense!

  • mustang

    Take out the starters this is practice now.

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    The Cowboys completely quit after Romo went down. I’ve never seen a team deflate that quickly.

    • mustang

      They are just bad I’m a Giants fan and I will be the first to tell you they are not this good.

      • Reggie C.

        The Cowboys aren’t this bad. Romo wouldve made this game a hell of alot closer. Eli’s carving a Cowboy D that looks to have quit.

        • mustang

          Please I didn’t see anything special from Romo while he was in there. Romo got the ball how many times in great field position and got what 10 POINTS!

          They are going to be 1 and 5 I will let you in on a little secret THEY ARE THAT BAD!

        • mustang

          “Cowboy D that looks to have quit” = BAD TEAM!

          • Reggie C.

            I think there are alot of gut-punched wills on that Cowboy D line. Granted i’m not saying that the Cowboys would’ve pulled this game out, but this game should’ve been more competitive.

            The loss of Romo for what’s likely the remainder of the season is THE nail in the coffin to the season. Chances at playoffs are over. That’s alot to process and digest while facing ELI MANNING.

            • mustang

              I think they suck.

              Hey Dallas the Giants are running it does that help

            • mustang

              Where that Cowgirl pride?

  • mustang

    I seriously enjoy this more then beating the the Red Sox.

  • mustang

    anyone know what’s the most points the Giants ever beaten the Cowgirls by?

  • ultimate913

    Excuse my ignorance but why do you people love watching the Cowboys lose? Is it because they had a dynasty before and are considered “America’s team” because of it? I’m being serious. I don’t know much, if anything at all about football.

    • mustang

      Yes.
      The same reason people like to watch the Yanks lose I guess.

  • mustang

    LMAO…love it

  • mustang

    only the Gaints would make this into a game.

  • mustang

    1 and 5

    How about those COWBOYS !!!!!!
