SNF Live-Blog: NYG-DAL, 4th Quarter

Sunday, September 09, 2007

That's Jason Witten, without the helmet. Maybe if the Giants recognized him, they'd tackle him or something. Just a thought.

Hmmm...excuse me, that Giants RB is named Derek Ward. Sorry, dude!

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

As AA said, AM's gotta be talking about rushing touchdowns. Let me do a quick stat check and I'll be right back. Tynes kicks one up and good, and it's 31-22, Dallas.

That stat check pans out -- it's Romo's first rushing touchdown of his career. Cowboys get the ball past midfield, and Romo hits T.O. for yet another TD -- there's a flag after the play. I don't think Mr. Owens will have anything to complain about.

Eddie Guns knocks the Giants DB for unnecessary roughness, and that's just sloppy on the part of the Blue. Kick is good, 38-22 Cowboys.

Now the Giants KICKER is hurt? This is getting just a little bit silly, isn't it? They're gonna have to hold open tryouts just to fill the roster for next week at the rate they're going. - OMDQ

Sgt. Hartman (Coughlin) is probably wishing he had been fired last off-season at this point.

This Heineken commercial creeps me the fuck out, plus it rips off Daft Punk's "Technologic" for the music. Speaking of, here's a Daft Punk break:



Creepy, isn't it?

Manning slugs it to Toomer for a 1st at the NYG 40-yard line, and Madden's stating the obvious -- Eli's doing his job, but no one on the defense is.

I think I just had a seizure. - AA

I would have been surprised if you hadn't. Eli fires another one to Plaxiglass in front of the first down marker.

"What he's trying to do is settle his protection." - JM. Awwww, he's trying to imitate Big Brother Peyton! So adorable! Droughns pushes through for a 1st down inside the Cowboy 20, and for all the talk about Wade Phillips getting the Dallas defense to improve, they don't look all that much better right now. Toomer hauls in another pass for a 1st and goal, and Dallas has to call a time-out while we go to break to Hootie and the Blowfish's "Only Wanna Be With You."

1st and goal, and we get a false start on the Giants when they can least afford it. Eli dumps it off to Derek Ward, and he scrambles in for a touchdown...count the rush on those picking up Ward for RB-starved fantasy teams in 3...2...1...

/clicks over to Yahoo! Fantasy Football Page

Oh right, 2 point try -- and it's unsuccessful as Anthony Spencer smacks up Manning, making him fumble it. Flag on the play, but it's on the Giants anyway. 38-28, Dallas.

"This may be a stupid question, but how do they have the photos of all these people on the Jay Leno show in advance?" - JM

Yep, stupid question, because no one cares.

Golden Boy Romo throws a pick to Jabril Wilson, and the Giants have the ball back in a big spot.

I don't ever want to hear John Madden talk about hitting the middle again. EVER.

Eli threads one through to The Other Steve Smith (the rookie out of Southern Cal) at the 11, and throws it to Toomer for very little gain. Another TD reception for Plaxiglass -- and the kick is good, making it 38-35, Dallas, with about 4 minutes left.

Good kick return by the Boys, which is the last thing the Giants needed right now. At least NY has all its timeouts still. Julius Jones gets stuffed, and the med staff is checking Eli for injuries. Who's ready for a Tubby Lorenzen sighting?

"I think he was protecting Eli from cameras." - JM. Lorenzen's big enough to do that. Jones screws it up by running out of bounds on a rush (AA is correct, MB3 is the truth), and as I type this, Romo hits Sam Hurd for a potential icer TD. Extra point's good, 45-35, Dallas.

If Eli needs to miss any time due to injury, I think Vinny Testaverde is still available. - OMDQ

You should know. He's with the Pats again, isn't he?

And Lorenzen (I would call him "Fat Tebow", but the Real Tebow has shown us an arm the last two weeks) is going to be running this series. Jesus, 6'4", 285? Holy crap. Eli's got what they're calling a "bruised right shoulder," and if it's anything worse, the Giants' season is well and truly fucked.

The Pillsbury Throwboy!!! -- AA

OK, that's definitely his new name now. The Throwboy scurries for the 1st down hiimself on fourth down, and he didn't even come close to getting it. Dallas ball. Barber rushes for about eight before the two minute warning.

Sadly, the Pats released Vinny earlier this month. I actually would like to see Houston sign him so he can read bedtime stories to Amobi Okoye. - OMDQ

I don't care who you are, that's just funny. Barber gets a first down, and the fat lady is warming up. MB3 keeps rolling on through the Giant line, and I think with about a minute left, we can safely say that this one is on ice. Barber pounds for what is damn close to another 1st down.

I gotta say that I'm really not comfortable with a world where both Wade Phillips and Norv Turner are both undefeated as head coaches at the same time. I know it's only one game, but still.

And it'll be a final of 45-35, Dallas.

Thanks to all of you who dropped by, read, and commented. Visit Signal to Noise some time, and I'll see you back here next week for Chargers-Patriots.

I just realized that my fantasy opponent had Brandon Jacobs starting this week. The Football Gods are smiling down upon my team.

There is absolutely no way John Madden knows what Photoshop is.

Why do the commercials for "The Kingdom" insist on telling me how intense the last 30 minutes will be? Are the first 90 or so minutes so crappy that I'll feel like walking out of the movie early?

John Madden was putting a large amount of effort into making Tiki uncomfortable there.
