The NFL season has not even reached the halfway point, but the fire under the seat of 10 head coaches is already quite hot.
The Giants’ offensive game-plan was far too predictable. In most cases, Eli has proven he’s capable of carrying the Giants’ hopes with his magical arm, but what he needed was a little help from his running backs.
When Lawrence Tynes got a do-over, LeSean McCoy couldn’t watch. “I was so nervous, praying please let him miss it,” McCoy said. Well, he did.
As they prepare for their Sunday night game against the Birds, the Giants may have noticed one thing as they look at film of the Philadelphia offense. Michael Vick doesn’t know what he’s doing anymore.
In the NFL, it would seem that with a 16-game season, teams don’t have this luxury. Two losses in a row and you have blown one-eighth of your season.
The 49ers had perhaps the most impressive opening game of the season because they went into Green Bay and shut down the league’s best QB in Aaron Rodgers. And the G-Men will still be one of the top defensive teams in the league this year.
Every year we know that the seasons will change and football pundits will punt past their coverage. They frown over their notes, making Super Bowl predictions as colorful as the rainbow foliage surrounding most NFL stadiums in October.
Tom Coughlin, Bill Belichick and Mike McCarthy can feel secure in their position as head coaches in the NFL. Rex Ryan? Andy Reid? Not so much.
For those on the outside, it seems like Reid is just another football coach who has tunnel vision. They come to this conclusion without any evidence.
Garrett Reid, the troubled 29-year-old son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday in a dorm room at the club’s Lehigh University training camp, where he spent many summers hanging out with his father’s team.
After Craig pointed out that Usain Bolt is fast, Jerry Recco was on hand to deliver his well prepared update.
Plaxico Burress wouldn’t mind flying high next season. But does he want to soar with the Jets or Eagles?
Has Burress seen enough of New York? After spending time hauling in catches for the Giants and Jets, the free-agent-to-be appears to have his sights set on Philadelphia.
“I’m expecting to see his best,” said Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
If I so much as hear a Jets fan mention the Giants on Christmas Eve at MetLife Stadium before next Sunday at around 7:30 p.m., I’ll turn your home into a coal mine.
