I’m sitting today out and not because the NY Football Giants offered up one of the great choke jobs of all time, no it’s due to a head cold that has inflamed my sinus to the point I feel like I got cracked in the face with a Louisville Slugger.
I have never been a Tom Coughlin fan and even if the Giants win another Super Bowl with him as HC I still won’t be a fan, the guy just comes off as a hard ass jerk. That was evident after he berated punter Matt Dodge after Dodge didn’t follow orders and punt the ball out of bounds. Look, I’d cut Dodge today as he’s very inconsistent and he suffers from the yips too many times to be a pro athlete and if Coughlin wants to rip him a new asshole that’s fine by me, but do it in the clubhouse and don’t show up at your post game presser and take all the blame and then throw your punter under the bus. How about alerting your kick off team to the possibility of an on side kick? How about not dropping Justin Tuck into coverage? How about not abandoning the aggressive defensive style that had you dominating the game by going into a turtle defense (a/k/a Prevent D)
As bad as that loss was, it couldn’t ruin my evening as I had a great dinner and saw a tremendous show last night. My kids claim that from singing and dancing in the aisles is why I’m sick today, as I’ve heard all morning that “I’m not a kid anymore” Thanks but I know what my birth certificate says, but in my heart I’m still 17 years old.
I’m out time for sinus meds and a nap
