Look like it'll be a long day, iggles fans.

Speaking of long days, I wonder how much Alka-Seltzer was consumed in Pittsburgh last night. Wow. That was brutal.

Yeah, the Steelers completely blew that game. They should've won by 3 TDs.

Any reason they abandoned Saquon in the second half? SB was running all over the Birds in the first half. Then they just stopped using him. :shock:

Fine with me, but found this strategy rather peculiar.

I have no idea and was wondering the same thing myself. Wondering if there was a fear over an injury or something. I've not seen anything in the press today but been too busy to really look.

Ok, just did some reading on why Barkley vanished for the 3rd quarter. Turns out Pat Shurmer is a moron. Barkley wasn't hurt, they just decided to rest him. While OBJ was out getting an IV for fluids Shurmer thought "hey, maybe my star rookie who was our entire offense in the 1st half would like some 'me' time".

He's not going to make it if this is an indication of his thinking process.

I watched entire game - and it was brutal to watch much of it

Officiating was everything people have said was driving them away from watching the NFL - too many calls - most the ones they made were bad and they missed significant calls. And I mean they blew at least four calls that impacted a potential TD or possession.

In the 2nd half Barkley not getting touches was also a factor of the Giants simply not possessing the ball - they were busy shooting themselves in the foot with special team and OL penalties that were putting them in long yardage situations.

Barkley probably lost 25-30 yards rushing in 1st half on runs lost to penalties and right before half he was wide open on a pass play - and I mean no one around him for 10-15 yards and Eli threw a pick into triple coverage.

The Giants could have exploited play action more in first half with success they had running.

As much as NYG have to put Eli out to pasture and upgrade OL they also need a DE who can get some pressure on QB - they can't get any pressure without blitzing.

Well, this will get you cut. And thrown in jail.

Glad the Chiefs cut this ass.

Once the video came out they had no choice. But, this happened last winter, the Chiefs knew the basics of it, and chose to accept his version of the story, likely because it suited their interest. Then this comes out and they can no longer play the "who knows?" game.

Anger and stupidity are a bad combination and this young man seems to have both in abundance. You spend a lifetime devoted to attaining a career in the NFL. You attain it. And then you throw it all away because you can't just walk away from a shrieking bimbo in the hallway of a hotel? It's a level of anger and stupidity that I can't even wrap my mind around.

And it's curious how the NFL, who has more money and resources than God, can never seem to get its hands on video that TMZ has no problem acquiring. Go figure.
