They're headed for self-destruction.  Have been for a while.  Their OL isn't what it was, and their defense, well, never was.  Their skill guys are dinged, and it ain't looking good...

Yeah, you hate to see the old lazy lip.  Never the same, even after they stitch it.  Kinda like Peter when he had a stroke in the Family Guy and his face was all droopy.

Off topic, but since you brought up Golic Finny. He also said that Strahan coming back was different than Favre coming back in that, <rough quote>"Favre was coming back because he loves the game and wasn't ready to quit, and Strahan would be coming back solely for the money."</rough quote> What a bunch of shit that statement was. Why wouldn't Strahan have strong feelings for helping the Giants out in a situation where they have just lost Umenyiora for the year? Why is he just wanting money? Seems a bit short sighted on Golic's part IMO.

Yeah, I don't think Strahan will come back, but that's beside the point.  

There's a lot of behind-the-scenes politics with the Favre thing.  With Strahan, I think it was more cut and dried, just a case of the time being right.  So maybe that's where Golic was going.  But both guys love the game, and leave/left the game with no small measure of regret.  And both guys like getting those fat paychecks.  It's all in the mix.  Favre isn't some freaking shining knight and Strahan some mercenary.

Two years ago I tore my labrum and had an aroscopy to fix it up.  The injury is painful only when the shoulder is manipulated in certain angles.  I went about life normally, but if I fully extended the arm and tried to lift it above my head, I couldn't get it past parallel with the ground.  Trying to reach up in the cabinet for a beer mug or trying to toss a baseball brought on pain that made me sick to my stomach.  I tried a bunch of strength training to build up the muscles and the rotator cuff in the shoulder to alleviate the pain associated with the "popping" but to no avail.  So I understand his injury and what he's going through.  I don't know how this guy plans to reach up in the air for a ball over his head if he in fact does have a torn labrum.  I'm not sure I can fathom any medical device that can be worn to allow this guy to play.  If he tries to gut it out, it's only human for him to shy away from that shoulder when run blocking or reaching with "alligator arms" on balls over the middle.

And an aside on the Chris Henry thing.  This team claims they brought him back b/c of the injuries to Chad Johnson and Housh.  I'm not buying it because Chris Henry is suspended the first four games of the season, and last I heard, Housh would be back before then.  They suffered this negative PR for a guy who can't play in a quarter of the season.  If they truly needed a WR because of these injuries, they should have brought in someone who can play in week 1 if Johnson and Housh can't go.

I'd wish this team a 3 win season, but they don't even deserve that much.

Funny you should mention that.  When I was in New Orleans I sat at the bar talking football with guy from Mississippi who was from one town over from Favre.  Needless to say he thought #4 was jesus pig fricking vomit christ himself.  It was the day before the Jets deal, so Favre's status was still up in the air, and this guy's take was that in fact it was Aaron Rodgers who forced Favre out.  Something about a contract year and Rodgers saying he wouldn't resing if they brought Bretty Boy back.  

He was a really nice guy otherwise so I didn't let him see me snicker at the idea that Rodgers has the leverage to force management's hand.

Hate to bring this back to a non-espn-style post, but...

I had the opposite experience in Kiln, MS following Hurricane Katrina.  I ran into some people who went to HS with Brett Favor, and they couldn't stand him.  He was a cocky jerk in high school.  Talked about how cocky and snooty and arrogant he and his family had become.  Strange how you get different reactions from the hometown folks.
