The Giants frustrate their fans routinely. The defense has played awfully for most of the season, and the offense stalls when the defense does make a play. Rumor has it that Kevin Gilbride has considered asking Eli Manning to catch his own passes in an effort to reduce the number of drops.
It is time for me to admit that this is entirely my fault. You see, when the season started, I purchased tickets for this game against Dallas. I do not live in New Jersey anymore, so going to games is not something I can do very often. But, upon purchasing these tickets, a grand conspiracy was set into motion, one that would ultimately make this game meaningful so that I did not waste a few hundred on a game that doesn't matter.
Victor Cruz pops a touchdown up in Seattle. The refs miss the most blatant defensive holding I've seen in my life in San Francisco (takes me back to 2003, but I digress). Eli fumbles away another final drive at home versus Philadelphia. Perry Fewell forgets his playbook in a trip to New Orleans and attempts to confuse the opposition by not making any adjustments in scheme. The refs redefine what a catch is with a Donald Driver TD against Green Bay. We then find out that Hakeem Nicks will not make any play that is beneath a certain minimal amount of difficulty. This is capped off by a 9 for 27 performance by Eli Manning that results in a Giant loss against he much hated Jets. But wait. The Giants beat the Jets and Mark "Sanchize" Sanchez (god, that guy is pretty good). In the words of RIchard Pryor, Eli Manning is quoted, saying "I ain't dead yet, mother******!"
All for this fan to have a meaningful game to go to this Sunday.
So, once again, I apologize to all of you for the ride this has been. But we're good from here on out.
