I Was Wrong

That wasn’t fun and I came away with bigger respect for Alfred Morris than I had before the game. I know he fumbled, but apart from that he was dominant.  In fact, he reminded me of John Riggins with the way he kept pounding the ball.

I will go out on a limb here. RG3 is a fabulous football player, but his career will be short because he takes too many hits.  Morris is the bigger threat to the NFC East in my opinion.  Very few teams have a pound and ground back anymore, but Washington clearly does. The NFL should watch out.

Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?  Yeah, it was awful.  The Giants took way too many penalties and they all seemed to come in key situations.  Now comes the really tricky part.  The Giants are 7-5 with the following remaining games: New Orleans, @Atlanta, @Baltimore, Philadelphia. 9-7 seems like it would be an achievement.  The problem is 9-7 probably doesn’t win the NFC East.  Dallas and Washington are 6-6.  Dallas has a hard schedule, but consider the remaining games Washington faces: Baltimore, @Cleveland, @Philly, Dallas. If they lose the Baltimore game, but win their remaining three, they would win a tiebreaker with the Giants at 9-7 because their division record is 5-1.  So, this season could quickly go down the drain, unless the Giants figure out a way to go 3-1 down the stretch.  Stay tuned….

    love the quote from Coughlin, “We aren’t going to beat anybody with 16 points,”

    They still have the lead in the division and seemingly have a knack for playing well down the stretch when needed. Washington could go 3-1 while Dallas should fade. Gotta win the division though, right?

      Yup, too many field goals not enough touchdowns. I think they are going to have to win the division if they want to make the playoffs, but with four games left that could change if some other teams fade.
