A mini Super Bowl for area zealots

This Sunday’s NFL playoff matchup between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is sure to be a doozy!

With passionate local fans rooting for one team or the other – I’m suspecting there may be some “incidents” if things don’t go well for one particular team.

Currently, the Giants are 4 point favorites, with over/under around 40 points. I guess odds-makers think the Giants will win 21-17 or something like that.

What do you think the outcome will be against the line?

I liked the headline in the Metro today “From Hero To Zero”.

Q: How long does the post-Superbowl victory afterglow last in NY?
A: One season.

Arizona is kind of the odd team of the group. Their defense is adequate, but not adequate enough to stop Westbrook and McNabb. Warner hates hard hitting blitzing defenses and is sack prone. I have to like Philly in that game. Steelers-Ravens will be one of the nasty games of the season. The Ravens are hot, the Steelers are home, and they know each other inside out. I am hoping the intangibles will put the Steelers over the top.

there were more flags in that game than are outside the UN !
and it still did nothing to reduce the amount of face masks and late hits. the animosity on the field was almost as bad as that in the stands.
seriously though, there were some great efforts by players on both teams yesterday. but i wouldn’t include either QB with that statement. sure it was windy, but it’s always windy. oh well.
congrats to the eagles fans.

So, are we still going to name a Hoboken street “Eli Manning Way?”
