Sansmokio and Friends...

This is easily the dumbest and worst quality photoshop I've ever done. But you'll have to excuse me, it's Friday...
Yeah, if you're wondering how that title relates to this post, don't. It doesn't at all. But I thought it was a funny nickname given Santonio's recent encounter with Pittsburgh's finest. What's not funny, however, is the fact taht he's been deactivated for Sunday's game. Enter Limas Sweed. Well played, Sansmokio. NOT!

And by the way, let's talk about that for a second. Dude, if you're going to roll around in a car with expired plates, don't you think you should do it sans-multiple rolled blunts? I mean, don't you have a nice cushy mansion, complete with the music video-esque crew of hot chicks, in which you could partake of your roughage? I know I would. But hey, that's just me. [UPDATE: I now know it was NOT because he was driving with expired plates, but rather that his car apparently resembles that of a drug trafficker...which is also awesome]

Moving on, we do in fact have a pretty important game this Sunday. One that the whole country will likely be watching...except for some parts of Michigan, where Lions fans have already given up on football.

We've talked about it all week. The Giants are a good football team. When they're on, they're on. The triple threat backfield of Brandon Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw and Derrick Ward, coupled with Eli, Plax, the other Steve Smith, Amani Toomer, Sinorice Moss, Dominick Hixon, and company, should provide an ample challenge for our Defensive unit. If the Steelers can shut said backfield trio down and pressure Ben's fellow 1st rounder from 2004 into making bad decisions (which we know he will do when pressured), we should be able to eke out a victory.

I'm not expecting a blowout, though. This one could easily go down to the wire. I just hope that if it does, it's not due to an unexplainable lack of Offensive production like that Eagles game. I have full faith in our Defense to do it's job, with or without Bryant McFadden and Troy (who likely will play anyhow). And here's to hoping they destroy Plax!

Oh, and Steely McGnome has predicted 27-20, Steelers.

Thoughts anyone?
