SNF Live-Blog: NYG-DAL, 3rd Quarter

Sunday, September 09, 2007

See, now that's whom Michael Strahan is playing for -- so he can make the payments on time. His lawyer should have been forced to turn in his license with that pre-nup.

Truthfully, that was a good call by KO on the Worst Person in Football. You stay classy, Jets fans.

Really, I'm italicizing that for my own stupidity. Sam makes a good point in the earlier thread -- why wouldn't you cheer for Clemens, who isn't held together with string and had a better preseason?

And the Giants keep dropping like flies right now, as the Cowboys try to start a drive.

"I wasn't kidding about Tiki." - JM. Could someone revoke his license to think?

Romo is hitting Crayton for 14 yards, and Julius Jones busts out some nice yardage on the next play to take advantage of a decimated defensive corps. T.O. gets 18 yards while getting absolutely decked on the pass, and Al Michaels shouts "Finally!" as if Romo wasn't doing OK already by throwing to a TE that the Giants wouldn't defend -- and T.O. hauls in a MIRACULOUS catch for a TD. Extra point up and good. and its 24-16, Dallas.

WTF? "If you give a teammate a body part, you're a good teammate" Thank you Shrek. - Matt

Shrek = Bettis or Madden, right?

And I think we have ourselves another Giants fumble lost on the kickoff. Whoops, no. Giants keep it and they rush for a couple of yards. Eli then throws for a first on 3rd and 12. Manning then hurls for another first down, and if the Giants continue losing and give up the game, it certainly won't be his fault or lack of effort.

3rd and 8, and Eli's luck runs out here as he throws it to the end zone. Tynes tries for a field goal from 48, and it's good. 24-19, Dallas, and we go to break to Tommy Tutone's "Jenny."

why didn't anyone ever give Ronnie Lott the tip of their finger? - odessasteps

Good question. Yay, Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader shots, and an odd choice of bump music in Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence."

Jason Tuck just dough-popped Oliver Hoyt with his shoulder. Nicely done, and MB3 gets stuffed at the line of scrimmage on 2nd down. Tuck just sacked Romo, and the Giants will get the ball back.

Oh, Shockey, you could have had that one easy. Ward gains seven on the next play, and Madden's got a point -- they've been playing better since Jacobs left the game. What this means for them as a team, they've got to figure out -- because it's going to make them one dimensional to a fault. Anthony Spencer almost had Eli slammed to the ground, but he gets lucky and flips an incomplete to Reuben Droughns. Punting to Dallas -- Crayton's out of bounds at their own 33, and the bump is Natalie Merchant's "Carnival." (I'm having a lot of fun with this -- "I can name that tune in 3 seconds!")

Chargers-Pats next week? Guaranteed to be better than this game.

Ridiculous. Jason Witten gets another 30+ yards on a catch and yards after. Giants, linebackers are important. Get one. MB3 rushes for a 1st immediately after that, courtesy of a T.O. block. 1st and goal.

And Antonio Ramiro Romo takes it in himself for the six this time. Kick is up...and, it's good. 31-19, Dallas.

say what you want about eli's game, he's had shades of brilliance today on some of his throws. problem is he follows it up by trying to fit the ball into dbl coverage or getting picked - Sam

That's pretty much Eli every start, but today, it's not as if the Giants defense has helped him at all. Bump this time: David Bowie's "Let's Dance." Nice.

Giants start out at their own 41 after a nice return by Butterfingers Bradshaw -- Darrell Ward rushes like crazy and gets all the way down to the Dallas 20 with a burst of speed. Third quarter over, 31-19 Dallas.

Isn't that mentioned somewhere in the Official Channel 4 News Team Mission Statement?

Good evening peeps. Sorry I missed the first half. What's the good word?

going back to the KO thing...
we Jets fans might be terrible people who have been scarred for life by the football we've had to watch in recent years, but we don't cheer when our own players get hurt-we're not Eagles fans.

Did Al Michaels seriously just say, "Tony Romo scores the first touchdown of his NFL career"?

Sep 9, 2007, 10:42:00 PM  

Can Dallas finally just rid themselves of Julius Jones at this point?

MBIII is the truth.

Sep 9, 2007, 10:42:00 PM  

He did OPS....I think he was referring to rushing though. He had to be.

I'd like to be introduced the ex-Mrs. Strahan.
