i Agree on all points Giants showed alot fortitude. But thank the lord for the crazy winds in Giants stadium pushing that ball just a little left.

I won't disagree that complacency can kill a team, but the Giants showed true meddle last night. Thats the kind of thing that makes a champion. To go 11 points down get back to 1 point down then go down 8 and come back and win. I don't know which game this dummy was watchin but it sure as hell wasn't the one I watched.

Is this the move slick? Just disavow any knowledge of the goofy column you wrote for this paper this morning? Funny how this doesn't fall under your recent writings:

Man up and take your lumps when you made a mistake. Put your column back up to remind yourself that you’re not perfect too. Hell all you writing material is about mistakes that sports figure’s make. I wonder if the management of Newsday stands behind your disingenuous effort to substitute this column for your original blunder.

first, the lord has nothing to do with football. let him take care of the iraq war.
second, even if carolina would have scored on the FG and won, the resilience of the giants to play THEIR football the whole game pleased me yesterday.

go big blue (especially the one with #27)

You need to get some perspective. And maybe a life. Your anger is so palpable, it's scary.

Wallace Matthews is a no talent ass clown. Newsday laid off a ton of people, raised prices and they kept this d-head. Great management.
