Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
The Dallas Cowboys stepped into MetLife stadium to take on their rivals and NFL champs, New York Giants. Initially, it looked as if this game was gift wrapped for the champs but several fissures showed up that indicate this could be a rough season for the Giants. Victor Cruz dropped THREE passes. Oh the pressure [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
The NFL kicked off in dramatic rivalry fashion with the returning Superbowl Champion Giants taking on their NFC East foe Dallas Cowboys. Much maligned Quarterback Tony Romo came, saw and conquered while in MetLife Stadium as he threw for 307 yards including three TD’s and came up bigger than Eli in the 24-17 victory.
The hero of the night props goes...
Jerry Jones is filthy stinking rich. He is also something of an egomaniac. And when you put those two things together and toss in a few other character flaws — like enjoying the act of belittling people by making them perform menial, personal tasks — on top of egomania, you have evidence that the Dallas [...]
They all seem to capture the “Yeah! **** yeah!” part but for whatever reason leave off the “Go for it, **** face!” scream directed towards the Giants sideline, which I actually found more hilarious
The Dallas Cowboys waited all year for another shot at the New York Giants. When they got it in the 2012 season opener, they were ready.
So were the replacement officials, who barely were a story as Dallas dominated the Super Bowl champions for much of a 24-17 victory Wednesday night that wasn't nearly so close.
It won't make up for the New Year's Day loss that cost...
The great thing about any sport, but in this case the great game of football, is that it can be consumed on a number of levels. If a certain segment of the viewing public is just watching the ball or their favorite fantasy league player, that is fine. In fact, that is how most of the world consumes the NFL, and it seems to be working out great for everyone involved.
Sadly, I do...
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Dallas 24 vs. New York 17

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...
The New York Giants players know they have a devastating pass rush — a group of speedsters that sacked Tony Romo six times in their last meeting with the Dallas Cowboys — but Justin Tuck believes the key to beating the 'Boys is by making sure Romo doesn't have a running game he can use "as a crutch."
The All-Pro defensive end said the Giants need to take away...
Some opening day thoughts at the start of the 2012 season...
1) "I am a Jedi, like my father before me." Yes, the Force runs strong in Eli's family. Eli can sense pass rushers that he cannot even see. He has mastery of his weapons, including Cruz and Nicks. Add Bradshaw, Wilson and a healthy TE, and Eli can be lethal.
2) "Fear is the path to the Dark...
Finally NFL football is back! A late rally by Eli Manning and the defending champion New York Giants came up short on this opening Wednesday kickstart to the 2012 campaign.The long awaited divisional matchup began in lackluster fashion, the only touchdown in a yawner of a first half coming on a Tony Romo toss to Kevin Ogletree from ten yards out with 2:33 left before intermission...
In the past we would provide a detailed recap of the game. The effort to provide Ultimate22, a comprehensive and objective recap of player performance, seeks to replace the coverage in large part. Still, there are MACRO THEMES that need to be summarized here. This recap is not trying to catch ALL the points. Please add more in the comments that I did not mention here.
The long anticipated season opener of the NFL fell flat of many expectations, especially those from New York and their faithful fans. The first half of this football game looked more like a preseason opener than a season opener. The play was extremely sloppy on both sides of the ball for each team, and there were numerous "dumb" penalties committed by both teams. At...
