When today’s radio show began, it sounded as if Craig had not learned a thing after picking against the New York football Giants last Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. As you know, the Giants went out and throttled the Falcons setting up Sunday’s date with destiny in Green Bay.
Craig believes Sunday will mark the day this Giants ride comes to an end. Boomer wasn’t ready to go write the Giants off just yet, but it is clear the former NFL MVP is rather impressed by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers performance on the field, particularly since December 26th of 2010.
