EnFoRcEr_uPu Posted November 1, 2005 Share Posted November 1, 2005 This is a quote from Carucci of NFL.com: "The New York Giants already were at the top of the NFC East, arguably the best division in the NFL, but their 36-0 victory over divisional rival Washington makes a case for them to be considered the best team in their conference. The Giants had plenty going for them, including the emotional lift of wanting to honor the memory of owner Wellington Mara, who died of cancer on Oct. 25. The Giants couldn't have done a better job of that than by pounding the Redskins. The defining face of this game belongs to veteran running back Tiki Barber, who rushed for a career-best 206 yards and a touchdown (which he celebrated by promptly carrying the ball to the sidelines and presenting it to Mara's grandson, Tim McDonnell). But the key to the Giants' success was a defense that smothered the Redskins offense. Mark Brunell, who had been on fire during one of the most impressive career comebacks in recent years, was stifled, throwing for 65 yards while being intercepted once. His backup, Patrick Ramsey, couldn't do much better with 62 yards through the air. The Redskins running game went nowhere." Now, why do we have to get bashed over and over again as if we played like dog ****? Did we play bad? Sure. But Barber even admitted to them knowing what we were doing. When asked how they pulled that win off, he said "Inside information", "It's a good thing to have". They got lucky. This game is a simple fluke and nothing more. Now we're underrated and the Giants just the opposite. Bring it Philly! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
