Hello from Giants Stadium. For the
final time for a Giants game. Huge crowd. Lots and lots of tailgaters.
I will never pretend to understand
weather, but I know this: It’s infinitely nicer today, on Dec. 27, than it was
for most of the Yankees home playoff games. The sun is shining and the Giants
are driving. Eli just completed a pass with Peppers in his grill. With Peppers,
you get the feeling he can be as good as he wants to be, don’t you?
Looking forward to Jets-Colts and
the Revis vs. Wayne subplot.
Will check in a bit later.
It’s time for some TWIF picks! That’s right, I’ll be making my football picks here during the season and competing against the guys on “This Week in Football.” We pick the Giants and Jets games and one wildcard — straight up, no spread. Fingers crossed, here goes:
Giants over Redskins. The Giants pass rush will harass Jason Campbell. Brandon Jacobs will run over someone. The receivers will catch some of Eli Manning’s passes.
Texans over Jets. Houston has Andre Johnson, DeMeco Ryans and Dunta Robinson. The Texans have to finish above .500 one of these years. And Mark Sanchez is a rookie.
Saints over Lions. Because I desperately do not want to go 0-fer the first week.
See you later. Remember, YES is doing a pregame and postgame show tonight. The game is on My9.
“This Week in Football” debuts tonight after Yankees Post Game. All of us involved with the show hope you enjoy it. And set your DVRs. The show will air again (and again) next week.
It’s going to be a fun season on TWIF; producer Jared Boshnack and the rest of the crew will see to that. On the first show — being finalized as I write this — new addition Ross Tucker sits down with the Giants offensive linemen (always an entertaining group), Gary Myers talks to Rex Ryan and Bart Scott for a profile of the Jets coach, and I interview a very relaxed and confident Eli Manning. There’s plenty of other stuff to look forward to, with host/fantasy gamer Gordon Damer and the wit and wisdom of Howard Cross. If it’s not already on your football radar, give TWIF a chance!
And I’ll have a baseball post for you later.
