So the confrontations never bothered him, until the Jets allowed 21 points in 50 seconds?

Sounds like he's using that as a copout for rage-quitting on the team.


Fireman Ed's been through worse. I'm not sure why he'd pick this moment to quit on the Jets.

In his defense, the Jets have presented him with myriad opportunities to rage-quit on the team in the past, and he stuck by them. Maybe this was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back, but I kind of doubt it. I think he's probably just tired of being a cartoon character.

Looks like the Giants are beginning their patented late-season run.

Then again, I'd have to think a part of him loves the attention. He's been doing his schtick for so long that I can't imagine he'd just get sick of it that easily. People like that tend to feed on attention - positive or negative

Which I view as poor logic. You've seen enough sports I'm sure to know how much a small blown call early can come back and haunt a team later.

Of course (and my mind immediately goes to Brady's first playoff loss); the difference is, there's time for a team to rectify things if the call is early in the contest and relatively small. When it happens at the end of the game and is essentially a binary decision between win and lose for one or both teams is where I draw the line.

Also - I must say that this is the most eloquent and philosophical argument about bad refereeing I've ever seen on a forum.

Eh, the Giants are a pretty good team and they've already blown out the 49ers, who I'd say are better than the Packers.

The game isn't over. 17 points can disappear quickly against the Packers' offense.

Unfortunately, another 17 can appear quickly against the Packers' defense

I wish voodoo dolls were real, so I could stick pins in every coach with a potent offense that kicks a field goal on fourth and one in the red zone.

That's not how you get back in the game, Green Bay.

Wow Giants are just crapping on the Packers. I was hoping Packers win tonight.

No offense has put up more than 31 on the Pats so far this season or at all last season.

The Giants just did it to the Packers in a half.
