Hey Carmine, keep running huh? The leading rusher had 2.6 ypc average against a defense that had the 5th lowest ypc average in the league last year. The run wasn't happening that night and Brady had to beat the Giants amidst a night off by his line and one hell of a pass rush from the Giants and he almost did.

As for Favre starting in San Diego, could be the dumbest thing I've ever read. Let's sit a kid who has already been voted to 1 pro bowl, a career rating of 86.6 and played a good game without the #1 back in the league and 1 good knee against the league's best team and walked away a 9 point loser in the AFC title game. Yep, let's sit him, that won't destroy his psyche or anything.

Next time, just think before you write.

Memo to the sun: find a sports guy the knows sports.

Favre to SD is DUMB. The jets don't have the cap room either.
And the pats lost because the Giants D line played out of their mind.

Carmine you are a clueless wonder. The Giants stuffed the run. Like Frank said they played out of their minds. Also remember before Morris went down with that freak chest injury we had one of the most potent running attacks in the NFL averaging over 135 a game. Sammy is back and he and Maroney both healthy will complement the passing game just fine.

The editor wants you to drop your writers license you bought in the sears catalogue on his desk by the end of the day.

You are fired!
