Even if the Giants QB straightens himself out by Thursday’s game in Chicago — another likely loss for 0-6 — it will be far too little, way too late. Like the cops at a crime scene say, “Go home, folks, nothing to see here.”
It has to happen Sunday against the Eagles, though. Already, just a quarter of the way through the schedule, the Giants are running out of chances.
In a year where it appears the Giants have hit rock-bottom and the Jets look ready to slide off the map, Sanchez gets to sit back and bask in the realization that he had nothing to do with any of it.
When the Mets make official Collins’ two-year extension today, they will have done the last right thing in a lost season that saw too many decisions and twists of fate go the wrong way.
Robinson Cano, for one thing, might be gone next year. In truth, they overachieved in a 2013 filled with injury and PED scandal. Most teams wouldn’t have hit .500 if they lost a key player seemingly every week.
Now that three days have passed since that 38-0 catastrophe in Carolina, the question must be asked. When, exactly, did the Giants turn into the Jets? Even more importantly, who’s to blame?
Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera deserved a storybook ending Sunday, but things do happen in this game. Still, it was quite a day at the Stadium.
It has come down to moments now, this wild-card race that simply refuses to be settled without the Yankees having some sort of say in it.
Not to predict that this team will be anywhere near its home locker room in MetLife Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, but the Giants have put on quite a show before following an 0-2 start.
To paraphrase Rex Ryan, Eli Manning didn’t get into the NFL to serve as Peyton Manning’s little brother.
Give Girardi this. At least he cares. He may be misguided at times, but he leaves little doubt on the field as to where he stands with his team
If the defense holds up as well as it did against Tampa Bay, rookie QB Geno Smith might just get a chance to learn while winning, which is far better than learning while losing.
The old refrain remains the same as the Giants prepare to kick off their season Sunday night in Dallas: as goes Eli Manning, so goes Big Blue. But this year there’s an added component.
To Ike or not to Ike? That is the question. Is it better to say farewell to Ike Davis or suffer the slings and arrows of another potential ice-cold start from a player from whom so much was expected?
Jets fans will now witness the final phase of the coach’s fall from blustery braggart to humbled loser, and now to sacrifice at Idzik’s altar.
