Thoughts of the Game

34 posts in this topic

Well so far, the Pats have played horrible in the 1st half, and they Giants are giving up the ball.

Anyones game so far.

[PoorWordUsage] off! I absolutely hate New York and Eli. I would've liked to have seen history in the first 19-0 team. Oh well maybe someone will do it in our lifetime.

Your so correct. IF they would have let him sit back in the pocket, the game would have been alot different.

The game was a total sleeper. All except the last Giant drive.

The commercials were pretty lame also in my [PoorWordUsage]. Lots of money for bad commercials.Halftime concert was alright, it got me more fired up than the game. ole

Thought it was a good game. Especially from a defensive standpoint. Commercials were 50/50. Some were great, some were kind of lame.

I thought it was pretty boring until the end, but that sure was a great finish.

I thought NE looked flat and disinterested in the game. NY got lucky with Eli's Hail Mary when he was in the grasp to continue to the drive for the winning TD. Seemed to be the story of their playoffs.

Congrats to the NY fans out there. It appeared that they just wanted it more. NE looked a little flat.

I agree. A couple made me chuckle, but very few were all that great.

Definately wanted and thought I KNEW the Pats were gonna kill 'em, but Giants came out to play and put heavy pressure on Brady. Boring game until the end, never would have though Eli could pull off a drive to win it at the end but but congrats to them and their fans. Disappointed in the Patriots though, I wanted to see the record happen.

Game ball to the Giant's defensive team.

To hold the Patriot's to 14 point's total for the game, who would have bet on that one!!

I agree. I really think they thought by just stepping on the field the game would be over. The Giants just wanted it more. And what was up with Billichik leaving with 2 seconds on the clock. What a sore loser. He got it handed to him and he should have taken it like a man. He didn't leave games when they were blowing out their opponents.

NE got BEAT. The giants kept pressure on Brady and in doing so kept him from standing back there and picking them apart. Any good HS QB could complete 70% of his passes given enough time.

I thought Belichek was totally classless leaving before it was over.

why did "the greatest coach of our generation" go for it on 4th and 13 with a chance to attempt a 49 yard field goal and possibly go up by 10? or at least kick a punt and play for field position?

Even though I wanted the Giants to win, (saved me $100 from a bet made at our FF draft), Eli still sucks. I thought for sure he was going to blow it on that last drive.

Well things are looking just peachy here in the Windy. I made one of the greatest bets of all time on the game. I had the Giants with the points with the following options: If the Giants covered the spread but did not win the game I would have won half but if they won the game outright I doubled my money, double G! Sweet. Even better was watching that tool, Randy Moss, celebrate after a mediocre touchdown catch after the defender fell down. Moss did nothing that whole game and then to watch him do his "Superman" just really got me geeked!

Then to watch Eli come back and stick it in their collective rears was sweet. The true "Superstar" was David Tyree, after cutting his route short on a failed pass to the sidelines and having Eli yell at him he proceeded to make the greatest catch this 48 year old has ever seen. With the defender in position to make the pick and then to catch the ball and press it to your helmet while going down and having the defender trying to pry your hand from the ball....OUTSTANDING!

Like my Monsters of the Midway in 85 Defense wins ballgames. The best offense is a good defense. They were on Brady all day like white on rice and that defense got a ton of their "ugly" all over Brady's pretty boy face!

Additional bonus: My second favorite team after DA BEARS is the Miami Dolphins, dating back to when I was a lad watching the 72 team go perfect. Their record is still intact as the only perfect season including the Super Bowl.

Did not think much of the commercials either, a few snickers but that's all folks!

Bingo! I was looking for someone to question that play, and I never heard anyone of the commentators bring it up at all. Hind-site is 20/20 but that play was a big factor. 49 yard field goal is not that great of a risk, but 4th and 13? What were they thinking? I'd feel better taking my chance with field goal on that one.

Batter,

Really showed a lack of confidence in their FG kicker IMO.

And a lack of confidence in their punter's ability to pin the Giants down near their own endzone.

I thought the Pats' play calling wasn't very good. They weren't able to sustain drives like the Giants.

I didn't think this game was at all boring. I love watching a good defense do their thing, and we got that all night long. Seeing Brady get knocked down that often was a real treat.

Eli was good, yeah, but the D won that game.

I was hoping the Giants win, and they did! No ring for Moss!

T.O., Moss, and Chad Johnson and deserve no ring for their terrible attitudes.

But, the main thing...I won $20 from my father-in-law when I bet the Giants would win the coin toss. And they did!

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
