'The walking cast'
OK, I know Tom Brady says it's OK. But the NYPost
is gleefully reporting it could be serious, perhaps even an Achilles' problem. Granted, the Post went out its way to find a quack who could put the worst possible spin on it. But it's not good. The Giants are fiddling around with their game plan as we speak. Eleven-man rushes are probably on the drawing boards. ... I was going to agree with Dan's column
about how a lot of old-timers in these parts have fond memories of the Giants, one of the reasons for my soft-spot post on the Giants below. But then I read this morning's Post headline: 'Who's afraid of Tom Brady now? Girly man limps home with blooms in hand, brace on foot.' The story's headline
(and flowery-laden prose) ain't much better: 'FLOWERY TOM A POSY PATSIE BLOOMS IN HAND, BRACE ON FOOT IN VILLAGE CALL TO GISELE.' ... OK, that's the Post's trash talk. But check out this article
in which the Giants claim they know they can beat the Pats and compare Brady to the vanquished Tony Romo and Brett Favre. Tony Romo and Brett Favre?
Bill Belichick, you have your first motivational clip to pin up in the lockerroom. ... I hope the Pats kill them. ...
