My friend Brad (a New York Giants fan from New Jersey) mentioned in a status update that today was the 25th anniversary of Lawrence Taylor breaking Washington Redskins quarterback’s Joe Theismann’s leg. While I did not watch the game (it was a school night) my father left me a note on the kitchen table that [...]
New York Football Giants
New York Giants QB Eli Manning got destroyed in last night’s preseason game (played in New Jersey) against the New York Jets. He christened the artificial turf at New Meadowlands Stadium with blood gushing from a massive head wound that needed a dozen stitches.

I am really happy that the NFL is finally putting the Super Bowl in a place where it might get cold and could even snow [...]
When I found out Jim Zorn was hired by the Redskins to be the offensive coordinator head coach, I immediately hit YouTube looking for the NFL Films Feature on him.

AFC SOUTHThe Houston Texans will admit they have the most boring name in the NFL.
Indianapolis Peyton Manning will take first ever snap without audibling confusing entire [...]
HOME team capitalized
Baltimore over TENNESSEEThis is a tough one to pick because there are two big reasons the Titans are supposed to win — playing at home against a rookie quarterback. However, I think the Ravens defense will mess with Kerry Collins enough that the Ravens find a way to win.
CAROLINA over ArizonaThe Cardinals won [...]

I had expected at least one of the tabloids would have gone with “WE WIN.” The Daily News cover shown was a wrap-around; there were two regular covers today too. The NY Post’s back cover is shown.
The right team won and restored order to the New York vs. Boston rivalry; take note Yankees. It has [...]
DC Sports Chick notes that amazon.com has a special book on sale. Make sure to pay attention to the tags at the bottom.
Just in case amazon removes the page, I have uploaded a screengrab for posterity.
POINT OF CLARIFICATION: I believe the Giants won the game more than the Patriots lost it, but I couldn’t resist [...]
