First and foremost, I take nothing from a Giant team that slapped the Pats in the jibbs. Having said that, I think the Pats looked more like the Jets last night. Can someone explain to me why you don't kick a 49 yard field goal on 4th and 13? Or better yet, why is your 4th and 13 play a lob to a double covered Jabar Gaffney in the end zone? Shady.....
How about the 12 players on the field challenge? So you challenge that, but not the blantant fumble recovery that was taken away? Once the Patriot recovered the fumble and was touched....the play was over. Never mind being rolled over and having the ball taken from you. Granted, that was a supreme bitch move to allow the ball to be taken, but it should have been reviewed nonetheless.
Don't even get me started on the clock during the Giants last drive. There was a sequence, at about 1:28, when the clock just didn't run. Or, the clock stops because the jack-off ref's are trying to determine if the ball was a first down....and it just didn't start up again.
In addition, this was by far the poorest officiated game I have seen in a while. The ridiculous push off by Toomer was hysterical. The amazing (an it truly showed heart by Eli) sack evasion, should have been whistled dead per the stated rules "Officials are to blow the play dead as soon as the quarterback is clearly in the grasp and control of any tackler, and his safety is in jeopardy." Eli made a great play and Tyree was really using his head on that catch! (See what i did there....Zing!)
The Giants played excellent football, on both sides of the ball. The Patriots...not so much. I think the Giants deserved the win. But, in the spirit of hating, I want to state that I think their victory was due to one of three reasons:
1) Tom Brady found out that Moss went ass-to-mouth on Gisele the night before, thus causing his inability to focus.
2) Eli Manning received stem-cells to help recover from the obvious "short bus" gene in his pedigree. He, for the first time, seemed to have a clear understanding of where he was.
3) Bellichek and the Pats find it much harder to call the plays of the league leading offense when they can't film your defensive signals. Fucking rules......
