The Giants made it clear early-on yesterday that despite their underdog status, they were going to give the 15-1 Green Bay Packers all they could handle, and then some.
Similar to the Giants, Jerry Recco made it clear early-on that his first update of the morning was going to be chalked full of sound from yesterday’s 37-20 Giants win, beginning with ‘I Love It When You Call Me’ Bob Papa calling Hakeem Nicks’ 37-yard touchdown catch in the final seconds of the 2nd quarter.
From there we heard from both culprits, Nicks and Eli Manning before a thrilled Tom ‘kiss my ass’ Coughlin praised the Giants ownership. Brandon Jacobs had nothing but nice things to say about Eli, while Justin Pierre-Paul was feeling pretty good about his ‘guarantee’. JPP’s defensive line-mate Justin Tuck talked about knowing what it takes.
Aaron Rodgers was asked about his under-performing teammates, a question he didn’t care much for. Jordy Nelson was one such teammate and he faced the music. Packers running-back Ryan Grant finished with 33-yards on 8 carries and didn’t find much solace in going 15-2.
We also heard from Osi Umenyiora on Sunday’s match-up with the 49ers and Carl Banks’ take on the penalty called on Osi for roughing the passer.
