New York City is a different kind of beast, boy. I should know … I've been working in the media for a minute now. And from being a member of the media, I could tell ya'll that when the New York City media gets a story that has legs, they write, report and televise that ish until they run it bone dry (Superhead style).
That’s what’s happening with Brett Favre right now, b and for good reason. I mean dude does hold nearly every record at quarterback. But the attention is on Fav-ruh SOHH much that people are forgetting about the Giants.
Excuse your boy … the Super Bowl champion Giants! And it’s kind of typical for Eli Manning to get overlooked.
But let this be a warning: Yes, the stars were all aligned, when the Giants won the Super Bowl, but don’t you dare sleep on them again. Even without Michael Strahan, the G-Men are stacked on defense. Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck as the bookends and (a healthy) Mathias Kiwanuka and Antonio Pierce behind ’em at linebackers can do a whole lot of work.
And word out of camp and early preseason, is rookie free safety Kenny Phillips really, really brings the pain.
Let’s not forget Super Bowl MVP Eli and Plaxico Burress at wide receiver (Giants just have to re-structure his deal and that ankle has to be healed).
The Giants are going to be good and will need to be with teams like Dallas and Washington making upgrades.
Is Favre’s mere presence in NYC making people sleep on the G-Men? Holla at me, maaaan!
Speaking of the Giants … peep Plaxico go to work on the Cowboys’ secondary in the new Madden 2009. Hopefully this serves as a good example of what’s to come.
