Minnesota – New York

This game is an embarrassment to Monday Night Football. Remember when we used to have the traditional Monday night game between two NFL powers? That’s now the Sunday night game. Monday night is reserved for the powerhouse team against the garbage team in its division, with ESPN hoping they can get eyeballs on the game for ratings.

But nothing can make this game easy on the eyeballs. Minnesota, led by Josh Freeman who is starting his very first game as a Vikings player, can’t do anything. Eli Manning, on the other hand, looks even worse than a rookie. On the last Giants series, early in the 3rd quarter, Manning threw a ball under pressure that looked like a Pix 6.

The Giants just scored on a 2-play, 4-yard drive after a Vikings turnover on a fumbled punt. It’s now 17-7, Giants. The Vikings return the kickoff 70 yards. Their drive will stall. Josh Freeman looks terrible. I’m going to bed. This game sucks.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
