Goose Egg

A lot has been made about the Giants being the team that has to get things done the hard way. This season seems to be no different. The Giants needed to win out to win their division but instead of going to Atlanta and playing with heart they laid a giant goose Tony Gonzalez egg…literally as goose egg is symbolic of the number 0 which is the amount of points the Giants scored. I wish I had anything positive to say but they offense didn’t score anything and the defense gave up 34 points. I guess this was the Falcons revenge for the beating the Giants gave them in the playoffs last year. At different points this season I have seen glimmers of a super bowl contender within the Giants organization but the team that showed up yesterday will probably not even make the playoffs. The only silver lining is that the Giants now have a legitimate running game with David Wilson and Lumpkin but they failed to utilize it after they got down big. I’m sick of talking about this disgusting game. The Giants need to win out to have a shot at the playoffs. Anything is possible if they get into the dance but getting there is no longer in the Giants hands alone.
