I think it says a lot about Joe Buck that he finds it easier to talk about Joe Philbin's situation over just calling a spade for spade on the officiating. Even the NFL Network basically were calling out everything from the Ware spot, to Osi, to Jennings, and a few other things.

I felt like Troy (who I seem to be in the minority of Giants fans who really likes him as an announcer) spoke for a lot of former players, many of whom took to the social media to complain about the officiating.

I still can't believe Leavy after SB XL is still even officiating. I demand Ed Hochuli!


I like him as well. Honestly, none of the announcers really annoy me. I find it so stupid when Giants fans or any fans for that matter criticize the announcers and say they have a "bias" against their team. These guy are paid to analyze the games. If your team has a bad play/game, are they supposed to say your team is the best. When the Giants secondary was getting torched earlier in the year are the analysts supposed to say they are great? I'm sorry, Giants fans who criticize Aikman are only doing it because he was a Cowboy.


The only guys I really dislike are Jamie Dukes, Moose Johnston (who talks way too much to the point he is contradicting himself sentence to sentence), I like Buck more with baseball than football, Theismann, Dierdorf (talks way too much), Cris Carter, Tim Hasselbeck, Jim Nantz for trying way too hard to be effusive (Tim Tebow 'underdog' story exhibit A), Rodney Harrison and Tony Dungy (zzzzzzzz).

The Aikman hate is just because he is a Cowboy but I always felt he was very fair regarding the team, especially in Eli's development stage because he completely understood the situation because he went through it. D

Prospectus, I love Ed Hochuli especially since he is probably the most jacked referee and "old" referee I've ever seen. However, let's not forget he blew a call almost as mad as Leavy's fumble a year or two ago, which cost a team a win as a TD was not ruled such when it should have been.

Also, I like Aikman, he is much more unbiased than many announcers, and I think he actually respects the Giants even though they had a huge rivalry when he played. He seems to respect many of the Giants' players and the organization as a whole. However, I usually turn off Aikman and listen to the radio broadcast as I cannot stand Joe Buck, who is by far the absolute worst announcer there is today. Just look at his call for the Tyree Catch from XLII, beyond terrible. To paraphrase (in a dead pan, monotone voice,) "Manning scrambles, breaks free, throws it to Tyree...and it is caught by Tyree." Also, his call of the Endy Catch was equally terrible, though, not as bad.

If anyone wanted to read my analysis, sorry I didn't get it finished. I was busy getting everything finished with my move and just lost track of time. I hope you enjoyed the offensive part, at least. I will attempt to accomplish finishing it this week against the 9ers, who I think are a much better team than week 10, however, the Giants are also a much better team. Of course, the goal this week, as it would be if the Giants win this week and when they played the Pack, is to pressure the QB. Alex Smith played outstanding last week, however, the Saints have no where near as good of a pass rush as the Giants or a defense.

While our defense was never always this good all season, they're playing lights out. I think Boley's injury lingered much longer than it seemed, and he is another player finally healthy, while having his best and biggest game as a Giant, same with Rolle, who pretty much shut down Finley. Ross, who is playing his absolute best since his rookie season, was absurdly good against Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings. I think he was underrated this year by Giants fans as he was a good cover corner, who played quite aggressively at times, which he got burnt on. However, for the most part he has been solid. Prince, who got burnt many times since returning from his injury, showed why the Giants picked him in the first round, playing admirably while filling in once Ross went down. He should be serviceable should the Giants need him the rest of the way. And man, how about Hakeem the Dream. No need to say anymore about him.

Prospectus is also right. Even though I said the Giants would make it this far (though as a fan, you're never satisfied unless you win a Super Bowl), I want these next two games so badly. While everyone said we never had a chance all year, I always believed in our talent. This team has the most talent in the division, save for maybe the Eagles, on paper at least. They're peaking now, and if they do not at least make the Big One, it will be a disappointment. With that said, I'll give my predictions right now:

Giants vs. 49ers

In a rematch of week 10, this game is a physical, defensive-struggle. The Giants start the running game very slowly, before exploding in the 2nd half for at least 75 yards, topping 100 yards, and getting the first rushing TD against the 9ers. Meanwhile, the Giants shut down the 49ers WRs for most of the game, yet they give up a big play to Ted Ginn Jr. for at least 40 yards. The Giants also hold Davis mostly in check, however, he will still get around 60-75 yards receiving. The Giants will do an admirable job in the running game, while Gore will get 100 yards, mostly because the 9ers will keep feeding him the ball as the Giants will get to Smith, early and often, which helps the secondary. Based on all this, I see Eli throwing 2 TDs, Bradshaw running for 1 TD, and Tynes nailing a FG, for a total of 24 points. Meanwhile, the 9ers get 2 TDs by Gore, both short yardage and the long completion to Ginn. This leaves the Giants Trailing 21-17 with 3:00 to go. However, Eli leads the Giants down the field for a score with just over a minute to go, giving the Giants a 24-17 lead, which they hold on to as the D is able to hold the 9ers to a 3 and out with the Giants getting the win in the victory formation.

Ravens vs. Patriots

I think this is a game for the Patriots to lose. The Ravens D isn't what it was of years past, while lacking the weapons to cover The Gronk, Hernandez, and Welker. I do not think Flacco is a very good QB who will be unable to take advantage of the Pat's pass defense. However, Rice will be the one who slashes the Pats for at least 150 yards and 2 TDs, but that is all they get. Meanwhile, Brady will rack up the yards and TDs, throwing for 3, maybe 4, TDs and over 350 yards. The Law Firm, Benjarvus Ellis-Green, will be ineffective, barely cracking 50 yards. Still the Pats win big, by at least 2 scores, setting up a rematch of Super Bowl XLII. Personally, I would rather face the Ravens to get our revenge, and I think we match up better against them. We already know we can beat the Pats, however, beating Brady twice in a season is difficult. The Giants can hold him in check for a half but no one can keep him in check for a whole game. That said, Brady and his TEs really worry me, while Welker is also hard to cover. Yet, Eli can completely dominate the Pat's D, which I think he would if both teams win this week. The Giants will also be able to run I think. I think that game would be a shoot out, in contrast to their first game. Either way, this weekend will be very exciting. What does anyone else think?

Same here. I watched the game again during the replay on NFL network on Wed night. Then I DVR'd Inside the NFL watching that after work. I am so fired up right now!

Man, what is there to really say?????? The 9ers really are a hell of a time though. Anyways, onto Indy where we meet the Pats again, who will be out for blood. Let's take it from them!

OK, I thought we could win despite the conditions but I never thought in a game decided by the STs that it would be the 'Niners really screwing up. Weatherford was in the Feagles-zone.

Eli took a beating and was totally game. I mean, 58 attempts in those conditions? Feb 6th cannot come soon enough!

The 49ers are a REALLY good team. Glad we pulled this one out. So exciting.

Hilltop, I know Hochuli made that terrible mistake in the Broncos-Chargers game and paid for it by unable to work the playoffs. However, Leavy and his crew in both the Super Bowl and Green Bay game made poor decision after poor decision.

The Tyree call, Buck scores the lowest in just general lack of excitement. I even hated his choice of words with the touchdown call. How does one just 'lob it' to the back of the endzone? Still, the Tyree call sounded like it could have been in pre-season. Summeral himself would have had his voice break on that. Bob Papa's radio call was pretty excitable but painted the picture a bit inaccurate saying Tyree was wide open when there were two defenders and one of them, Rodney Harrison, trying to kill him. If I had to choose the definitive call it would be Marv Albert's call. I also like Gil Santos' call on the Patriots side, and not for schadenfreude purposes, he seemed genuinely shocked of the play unfolding and had a pretty human reaction instead of Buck's robot.
