Stamford, CT: It’s the most depressing time of the year. Yesterday Junoir covered the dumpster fire of a season for our New York NFL teams. But I’m here to pile on the Giants and Bills. To make it all more fun, about 346 guys players went on the Covid list yesterday. Good times.
Garbage Fire Giants
Rumor has it that Gettleman is gone after the season. In true Giants’ fashion, he will be politely pushed into retirement, instead of being violently kicked out the door. The MNF game had a glaring example of Gettleman’s incompetence.
On the first day of free agency last year, the Giants rushed out and signed Devontae Booker to a two year, $5.5 million deal. With Saquon coming off injury, it made sense to get a guy and Booker has been capable. The Cardinals waited and nabbed James Connor much later for less than a million. The Booker signing was oddly aggressive. Good teams look for ways to get an edge, and don’t overpay for mediocre backups. The Ravens have been picking up RBs off the scrap heap all year.
Gettleman should take Joe Judge with him. I know you don’t want to hire a new coach every two years, but the man talks the talk but hasn’t walked the walk. Judge said he was encouraged by the way the Giants fought in the Chargers debacle. Wait, what? I think he’s bragging about two garbage time TDs. I’ve seen enough. Let’s reboot this mother.
Bills Blow One
Speaking of players Gettleman should have drafted, what an amazing comeback by the Bills and John Allen. But they couldn’t get it done in OT. How can you get the ball first and go three and out? The Bills are now 0-6 in games decided by one score. The formula vs the Bills is to keep it close and wait for them to blow it in the end.
The Bills are now 7-6 and barely hanging on to a playoff spot. Luckily, three of their four remaining games are gimme putts. But one more stumble and they could be out. And Mitch Trubisky might be under center for the next one.
Covid Covid Covid
The NFL reported 37 positive tests yesterday. It almost seems like we’re worse off than last year. The NFL is 95 percent jabbed up. Are we allowed to consider the possibility that the vaccine sucks yet? No, not yet? Ok let me know. I’m sure they’ll all recover quickly though. You know, just like Aaron Rodgers.
