New York Football Giants (aka Petunias)...

Is it just me, or did we have a similar headline on this very Web site Friday morning?
Except instead of Coughlin and Giants, it said Reid and Eagles. The G-Men AKA PETUNIAS lost to the Bears, 17-3, last night and Tom Coughlin
wasn't pleased with the way his team performed. "Quite frankly, we got embarrassed," he said, per Mike Garafolo of The Newark Star-Ledger. "I don't like that word: 'flat,'" he added. "(The players are) professional athletes. I question their focus. ... There isn't one phase that I thought played well. I didn't think we were very physical at all. We came in with some solid physical objectives and things we didn't do from the first week we had to improve upon. We really didn't accomplish any of those."

The Giants had several players sidelined also, plus they just played Monday night and had only two practices in between games. The one newsworthy item from the game is that defensive tackle Jay Alford, a Penn State product, suffered what is
initially being termed an MCL sprain. Per Garafolo, Alford will undergo an MRI and other tests today.

Injuries are part of the game. We have a lot of depth on the defensive line and we are going to have a ball control offense with the running game grinding it out. We signed four extra d-linemen so we will be fine.

Plus all the puppies will be safe.
Just sayn'

Couglin won't take any crap. He will whip them into shape by the time the season starts.

I can't wait for the first Philly QB controvesy.

It will be like Governor Patterson and President Obama going at it like they are doing today.

I want to set back and enjoy. Hee, hee.
