The Atlanta Giants and New York Falcons

The Atlanta Giants and New York Falcons

Really, aren’t the G-Men and the Dirty Birds the same team??? Let’s take a closer look to see if there is any validity to this. As far as the quarterback position, you have to look at both Eli and Vick as two young quarterbacks who are inconsistent and have yet to produce consistently in the NFL – and their team mirrors the play of their QBs. As far as running backs, both teams have undersized and underappreciated runnings backs who don’t seem to get the ball enough and who score so infrequently that they drive their fantasy owners crazy. They pile up yards, but just can’t seem to get in the end zone too often. On the defense, both teams have been decimated by injuries and seem to tire down because of that when it matters the most: in the 4th quarter. As far as coaching, both teams coaching staffs have come under fire. Tom Coughlin in New York has been criticized by everyone in the media and even his own players throughout the season. Jim Mora and Greg Knapp have been on the hot stove the entire season. The offense has look inept for both teams and the defenses have looked average. Both teams are falling precipitously out of playoff contention. Both teams need a win bad. Both teams would have already freefalled out of playoff contention if they weren’t in the mediocore NFC – which is now looking more and more like it will send a sacrificial lamb to the team that comes out of the AFC. When talking about the Atlanta Giants and the New York Falcons, one must consider the talent and performance at the WR position. The New York Falcons have one of the most enigmatic WRs in the league in pLAZYico burress. He can make a play that only 3 or 4 WRs in the league can make one second, and then the very next he can just give up on a play, just like he did once again in yesterdays game when Eli threw one of two interceptions to Pacman Jones. Are the Atlanta Giants’ WRs even fit to be called that??? They dropped another 5 passes yesterday and they were all big drops. How could Roddy white possibly have dropped that deep ball that was delivered right into his chest after Vick took a brutal shot from his left side. What more can you ask of Vick??? He stands in the pocket, gets drilled, delivers a perfect ball to his WR, only to have it dropped at a critical point in the 4th quarter. Unbelievable. Vick and Eli, at times can appear indifferent at the post-game conference. Vick finally showed some emotion and frustration this past weekend by flipping the hometown fans the bird after he was serenaded by boos at the conclusion of the game. Things are going down fast and the ship is sinking for both teams. I don’t know if either team can plug the holes necessary to salvage the ship and its crew. In the mediocre NFC, anything, fortunately (if you are a Falcons or Giants fan) or unfortunately, can happen. Ya never know, ya never know!!! Right!?? Right??!!
