There’s a saying that you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, but the Jets are proving that to be just a myth.
“I’m expecting to see his best,” said Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Remember those brutally boring first quarters when the Jets couldn’t get much going? Well, those are so four weeks ago.
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.
The feeling of euphoria and invincibility the Giants had after beating the Patriots two weeks ago? Yeah, that’s gone. Long gone.
The Giants are on the descent, an annual ritual among faithful watchers of Big Blue. And it’s their own fault.
Tom Coughlin didn’t mince words. “This is as big a disappointment as we have had around here in a long time,” he said after the Giants’ poor showing Sunday night.
Last year, the Eagles destroyed the Giants’ season with a 28-point onslaught in the final seven minutes. This time, Andy Reid’s team used a slow and excruciating method to hurt Big Blue once again.
There was quite a bit made this morning about the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty called on the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson in the 2nd quarter last night for taunting the Giants sideline. A penalty that ended up costing the Eagles a 50-yard pass play.
DeSean Jackson’s near replay of his winning punt return of last season helped the undermanned Philadelphia Eagles take a 10-3 halftime lead over the New York Giants on Sunday night.
Let’s just say Giants safety Antrel Rolle got wrapped up in the moment.
Michael Vick didn’t get the calls he was looking for. As for the Giants, they got what they wanted in Philadelphia. A win.
Winning the Super Bowl in 2008 was a game that forever will bring a smile to the faces of the Giants and their faithful followers. Losing to the Eagles at the Meadowlands in December is one they will never live down.
No matter how much the Giants try to downplay the trend, it is unmistakable and cannot be ignored. They have lost six consecutive games to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Giants-Eagles is just days away. That can only mean one thing: let the trash talking begin.
