Grinding AX Sunday: Jets, Giants, Romo, Aikman, Manning and Olympics

Move Over Dimes

FIELD OF SOD, NJ – The New York Giants are already jealous of their stadium mates. The New York Jets have drafted the next favorite son of the tri-state area.Zach Wilson started the annual Battle of the Meadowlands, while Daniel Jones aka Danny Dimes hid on the sidelines – afraid of getting shown-up by the charismatic Jets rookie signal caller. With his track record, Dimes needs all the work he can get, especially with newly acquired receivers. They were signed to save this Blue Devil from being exorcised. Wilson went 6/9 for 63 yards and looked very comfortable behind center. As for Dimes, he looked confident on the sideline with headphones on. I think we found New York’s next media darling.

Why are former Dallas Cowboys signal callers the best color commentators?

There is no denying that America’s Team has produced some very successful and popular NFL analysts .

Dating back to the beginning of Monday Night Football when Dandy Don Meredith offered up some of the most entertaining banter to rescue the efficient but dull Frank Gifford, America fell in love with football color commentators. Watching games with only play by play announcers was deemed boring. A few years later, Phyllis George crashed through the boundary and created unheard of opportunities for women, adding another dimension with sideline interviews. Fast forward to the new millennium. Troy Aikman, a three time Super Bowl Champion, joins Joe Buck as Fox Sports’ number one tandem . Aikman has emerged as the most respected analyst of X’s and O’s on television.

Get Your Own Rings

Now almost two decades later, Tony “Oh No” Romo lands the largest contract of them all. His popularity in the booth exceeds his acclaim with opposing teams when he expertly lost meaningful games against them. God Bless America!

There just may be a New Sheriff in town along with his deputy. Who you may ask? None other than Peyton and Eli Manning! They will be talking with fans via a zoom like platform. This is exciting news for Manning fans such as Small Matt. A new way to watch the Giants and talk with a Manning while doing so!
Now for my Olympics final assessment. Nobody watched and nobody cared.

Chime in with your comments and come back tomorrow for the venerable Junoir Blabber .
