Giants Should Just Shut up and Play
I’ve been a Giants fan all my life and, that includes during the horrible 70's...
I’ve sat in a dunk tank in Lincoln Financial Field in a Plaxico Burress jersey, and wore a dress on the streets of Philadelphia to pay off bets for my team. I now have to purchase a Dez Bryant jersey. (Don’t they give those away with a full tank of gas?)
In all that time, I can honestly say that I’ve never heard as much “chirping” from players before a game than I have this week from this 4-6 team.
First, we have Jason Pierre Paul telling ESPN that the Giants were going to “put it on” the Cowboys” and that “blood will be spilled.”
Terrell Thomas guaranteed a win: "No doubt we're going to win this game," Thomas said Friday on Sirius XM NFL radio. "You can tell them, put it on a bulletin-board – it doesn't matter, because we have to win this game. Our season is on the line right now."
Also, Antrel Rolle promised a different outcome then when Dallas won in the first game.
On top of all of that, throughout the game, punter Steve Weatherford celebrated his punts while the team was losing. That was great for the social media career but was it good for the team?
When they finally lost, it was Dez Bryant who beat Antrel Rolle time and again in the final game ending field goal drive.
Later, Orlando Scandrick and the Cowboys had the last laugh.There can never be anything more galling that the Cowboys having the last laugh.
I’m hoping that the Giants don’t really believe that today was their season, and that they can dig down and find 5 more wins. If that happens and they make the playoffs, then and only then, will they have the last laugh. In the meantime, shhhhhhh...
