Craig described Sunday as ‘a day of losing’ and ‘a day of losers,’ going on to say ‘everybody sucks’ — of course referring to the performances by both NFL locals.
First it was the Giants, who traveled to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals — losers of four straight games coming in — and proceeded to get slapped around on their way to a 31-13 loss, dropping Big Blue to 6-4 heading into their Week 11 bye.
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green certainly found some “holes” in the Giants’ secondary, catching seven passes for 85 yards, including a 56-yard first-quarter TD. It was one of four TD passes on the day for the ‘Red Rifle’ known as Andy Dalton. The Bengals gave the Giants all they could handle and more. Boomer can’t explain the fog that Eli Manning – who hasn’t thrown a TD pass since Week 7 against the Redskins – currently finds himself in, and pointed out some ‘alarming trends’ the Giants have on the defensive side of the ball, specifically with their secondary. That poses the obvious question in regard to defensive coordinator Perry Fewell: What is he doing?
The Giants will now head into their bye week preparing to welcome the Packers into MetLife Stadium Sunday, November 25.
As for the other local team, the Jets, they are essentially ‘dead and gone’ after getting blown out by the Seahawks 28-7 in Seattle. The loss drops the Jets to 3-6 and there is very little light at the end of the tunnel, as things appear like they will get much worse. Craig thinks Mark Sanchez is playing like the worst QB in the NFL, meanwhile Boomer says the the Jets have hamstrung themselves by bringing in ‘wonder boy’ Tim Tebow as the ‘backup’ signal caller.
So a lot of reaction from the Dynamic Radio Duo on a couple of bad losses on the gridiron to start off this Monday edition of the Morning Extravaganza…
