previews Week 12 -
Next week - Philadelphia:
What are they saying about the
here to find out.
We checked in with
Gamegirl, and she was surprised with one aspect of the game.
"How did all those Cheeseheads get tickets? The parking
lot was 'packed' (pardon the expression) very early."
Well, we know how one guy got tickets. He (Jetguy) is dating
Gamegirl who has two tickets, and he's big on the tailgating
"I was freezing there in the windy cold parking lot for
a few hours before the game. It was like torture with the
bad weather and all the Cheeseheads. I don't know why so many
of them were there. You would have thought that they were
Superbowl champions or something!"
Good dig on the Packers from Gamegirl, but that was about
it for the day.
"Jetguy even had to wear a giant (don't pardon the expression)
Cheesehead! It was totally embarrassing."
Gamegirl's idea of tailgating is more like sitting in an exclusive
skybox, sipping champagne while the activities commence around
her, and certainly, with no oversized Cheesehead hats anywhere
We know that the Jetguy provides Gamegirl with the best food
at these tailgates. He cooks up the steaks himself for her,
and does the best he can to make Gamegirl as comfortable as
well as can be expected in a windy parking lot environment.
Maybe a bottle of champagne would help, but then again for
this particular game we guess you're talking wine with cheese-head.
Gamegirl got down to filling us in on the game.
"Anyway, the first quarter was a sleeper. It was boring
with no excitement, and by the end of the second quarter you
could tell where this game was going. The Giants were down
20-3 and had nothing going for them.
The only highlight of the day was the dog during halftime
who caught every frisbee thrown. The hometown fans finally
had something to cheer about, and they went wild for ten minutes
There was a moment of hope when Wheatly made that good run
of his near the end of the third quarter, but that didn't
last too long. I thought that they made the quarterback switch
way too late.
If you really want to see what Kent Graham can do, you kind
of have to give him some time to get things going. Green Bay
continued to control the game, and in the end, only the die-hard
fans were left as the Giants continued their slide from first
Yes, we agreed that it was disappointing to see the way things
went this year. There was so much hope at the beginning of
The Giants had locked in some key players with good contracts,
and made some smart looking draft picks. Then almost as an
omen, Sehorn got injured in that preseason game.
Gamegirl picked up the conversation, "It would have been
interesting to see what would have happened with Sehorn and
Cory Miller in there, and with a healthy Strahan. Hilliard
was back this year. It could have been a great season with
the Giants defense really controlling the game while the offensive
unit grew and developed into a stronger
role as the year progressed."
That being said, we went off to interview Mikefan.
was also very disappointed with the game.
"Well, the Packers gave it everything they had and the
Giants gave it everything they had. Unfortunately, at least
for this year, that results in a 37-3 Packer win.
Things went good for the Packers coming off their Monday night
They discovered a running game with Darick Holmes who had
27 carries for 111 yards, and a touchdown.
That was almost as much as the Giants gained in the air and
on the ground, which was 127 yards. That's how bad things
went for the Giants.
The Packers also might have discovered a rookie star defensive
lineman in Vonnie Holiday who had an outstanding game. All
in all, they put 37 points up on the board, and are now officially
tuned up for their big game with Minnesota next week.
The Giants on the other hand can now deal with a quarterback
controversy as they prepare to face off against the Eagles.
Get ready to see if they will sink to the lower depths and
take the next to last spot just over Washington.
Of course, if they do lose to the Eagles this coming week,
even that will be hard to hold with San Francisco, Denver
and Kansas City coming up."
We asked Mikefan if there was anything that looked good.
"The Giants gave up 37 points, scored only 3, gained
only 127 yards while giving up 433. Time of possession was
about 20 minutes compared to Green Bays 40. Third down efficiency
was low as usual, 2 for 11.
What looks good right now is next year's draft pick."
