As we inch closer to Sunday’s clash at Candlestick Park, Boomer & Craig had an awful lot to get to, beginning with the ongoing ‘smack-talk’ – kept going yesterday by Chris Canty, who predicted a ‘Blood-Bath’ in San Francisco.
Eli Manning gets knocked-out of practice early with a stomach bug, which is an obvious concern for Big Blue. Boomer talked about Eli’s unfortunate plight, the importance of practice and hoped what ails the Giants signal caller does not spread throughout the team.
