AFC North Headline Of The Day...


Here's a first - one of OUR headlines as headline of the day. As you can imagine, this one's only here because...well, what?

Ok Gregg Doyel, the Giants "beat the living snot out of" the Steelers? Um, if my memory serves me correctly, the Steelers Defense kept them in the game by stoning Brandon Jacobs at every turn. I mean, sure their Defense sacked Big Ben five times. But I hardly think that the game was so one-sided as to say that the Giants "beat the living snot out of" the Steelers.

See, his premise is that because Big Ben was knocked down on 16 of his 34 dropbacks, and that Greg Warren, Ryan Clark and Mitch Berger (I think we can safely say this one was a stretch) ended up injured by the end, this means that the Giants beat the Steelers around yesterday.

I'm sorry, maybe it's my homerism kicking in (or perhaps I've channeled Browns fans delusion), but I thought that game was hard fought by both teams, at least on the Defensive side of the ball. It was a fight to the end. And frankly, you can't use the Punter and Long Snapper getting injured as a measuring stick for how badly a team gets beat physically.

Gregg Doyel, you should probably think before you type...because in addition to your premise sucking, James Harrison is a Linebacker, not a Defensive End. Nice try, though. FAIL!

Good thing these links have not FAILed...

"This Game Still Makes Me Want to Puke" would be a more adequate headline to use...probably through next week.

sheena ~ That was going to be MY headline for tomorrow! Guess I'll have to get creative now, haha.

vern ~ Yep, I'll bet they were sipping some appletinis with their pinkies up all the way back to NJ. Also, sometimes I like to call them the Gians (pronounced j-i-nnns)...
