The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

 

Dallas 24 vs. New York 17

 

By Eric Judd @ericjuddTSHQ

 

 

The Good

 

I gotsta get paid!

Kevin Ogletree. Poor Miles Austin. Poor Dez Bryant. Kevin Ogletree made you look bad. Moreover, he made you an after-thought. The big names, with the big contracts, continue to get overshadowed by previously unknown 3rd receivers. Kevin Ogletree had a career night. Two touchdowns and an extremely important 4th quarter catch to keep the Giant-killing drive alive. Ogletree will get three solid days of non-stop coverage. Two things you can bet on, in hindsight of this upset: Kevin Ogletree will be the HOT free agent pick up in your local fantasy football league this week, and Kevin Ogletree will be thinking about the enormous paycheck that will be coming his way this offseason.

 

 

The Bad

 

A 16?! Come on Carrie Ann Inaba..

 

The Hands of the New York Giants. Victor Cruz. David Wilson. Wilson had a perfect opportunity to gain the upper hand on incumbent Ahmad Bradshaw for the starting running back job for the Super Bowl Champions. Bradshaw was struggling to find lanes and spending too much time running parallel to the line of scrimmage. Then midway through the 1st quarter, with his team driving, he has the ball stripped, like a rookie, like a rookie from a small school. And guess who didn’t hear his name called for the Rest Of The Game? David Wilson. Ouch. Victor Cruz danced he way into national prominence in 2011. In the first game of the 2012 season, his two left feet (and two left hands) undoubtedly cost the Giants. A divisional game, A Home divisional game, An opportunity to block out any memory of a 9-7 team who got hot at the right time. A 9-7 team who was outscored by their opponents and had more than their fair share of lucky bounces. I don’t care if you are Mikhail Baryshnikov; you drop three passes in an NFL game. You are a goat.

 

Ya see…wha wha ha happen…sniffle

 

The Ugly

 

You ain’t got no alibi!

Nike’s new Uniforms. Nike’s larger presence in the NFL is only a good thing. Outside of Apple, no one can push their products better than Phil Knight. NFL merchandise will only become more prevalent in the United States. One major issue I have the jerseys, aside from the uniform disaster in Seattle, is that each of the 32 teams seem to have strategically placed colors that make them look, either extremely sweaty or oddly misshapen. The little embellishments are distracting and even make me second-guess a new jersey purchase.  I don’t need a big wet spot on my stomach when I’m sporting my team’s colors. That will happen on its own.
