==========================================

Terry Bradshaw's Week 10 review (Fox NFL)

That was a real disappointing loss for the New York Giants. Their special teams were awful. The total return yardage, counting the interceptions, was 394 yards. They had a kickoff, a punt and an interception returned for a touchdown against them.

I mean, holy smoke, those are just mental breakdowns. Then, they overcome all that to tie it up late, only to lose at home on a last-second field goal. That had to rip their hearts out.

Let's be honest, this was probably a game that the Giants looked at when they were at home and checked it off their schedule as a win. Players do that. That's what is so frustrating. They weren't ready to play this football game. They didn't take care of business. We were all jumping on their bandwagon in the studio, and they had a serious hiccup. I mean, a huge hiccup. They gave everybody in their division, especially Dallas, hope.

If the Cowboys beat Philadelphia on Monday night, they are tied with 6-3 records, but Dallas is in first place because they have already beaten the Giants.

I thought before the game started that the Vikings might slip in there and win because they have been playing hard lately. They have been running the football more with Brad Johnson in there at quarterback. You run the football because you don't want to get Brad beat up. Heck, you could say that the Vikings, at 4-5, are back in the NFC North mix.

What the New York fans have to understand is that Eli Manning just got his first road win last weekend. He is still a young quarterback. We all get caught up in his poise and everything, but he's still learning. This was his 16th NFL start, and he obviously still has a lot of learning to do. But the Giants can't get down on him. All quarterbacks throw four interceptions. It's all part of it.

But this is one they definitely let slip away. Minnesota did play hard, but in the back of their minds, the Giants were thinking "We'd win and be 7-2. How sweet would that be?"

The Giants simply put the cart before the horse.

Any team that loses can say that they were "looking ahead of the other team" to next week, bla, bla, bla...

I disagree with Terry because the modern NFL is built around parity, and you have to get up for each game. There is no such thing as Team A being so much better than Team B on "any given Sunday", that you can look beyond them. I mean, does any team not gear up for Arizona or even the Jets ? You have to play like each game is the most important of the season. To say that the Giants are so good that they can look beyond other teams just doesn't really represent where they are right now, and where the NFC is.

Truth is: we played all 60 minutes with focus, they didn't. Period. Whatever excuse they use, it is just not important. We won, they lost. Period.

The NFC is still wide open, and we are in it. I looked at our schedule, and call me crazy, but I see us at 9-7 or 10-6.

Brad "managed" the game well, and like I said, we played with focus for 60 minutes... :grin:

I think that's the first good thing he's ever said about the Vikings. I do not like him. He is a hillbilly lover.

i still hate terry he is still a fag and he really didn't say anything good about the vikings, just how hard we played, and how the giants had mental mistakes which isn't true. just cause our defense got 4 interceptions don't mean they are cause of mental mistakes. we all know manning is over rated, he is still young but our defense mixed it up a lot like last week and didn't keep doing the same thing like we did against tampa which worked good at first.

Well, yes, but does every team always get up for each game? I think there is validity in what Terry said. He has played the game, and knows football players, and sometimes a team might just do like he said, and think of an upcoming game as one they can take lightly. Football players are not robots, they are human beings, and so, they are imperfect and subject to human frailty. I don't always believe what Terry or other so-called experts say, but on this point, I think he is right. Besides, even a broken clock is right twice every 24 hours. :wink:

He is still a HBL, he didn't really say anything nice about the Vikes, he made excuses for the Giants looking ahead and said that we have been playing hard and to cover his butt to make him "appear smart," he says I thought they mught win.

That is not love, that is someone looking to find any reason to say I told you so. He took an inkling of a thought in his brain and turned it into "I thought they might pull it out."

TB is a mental midget with an abnormally large mouth.

Shut Up TB!!

The only time TB was cool was in Smokey and the Bandit. I was very impressionable then. The Bandit was cool.
