    Anyone hear how ignorant he is about rules. Complaining that the refs held up 1 play and does not to hear the rule that if the offense substitutes the defense is allowed to substitute. Says if offense is ready to snap they shouldnt be stopped from that..Hilarious.
    Also says the giants WRs are going to have a lot of fun vs the pats D in the fast track in indy

    Given everything we've seen this year, tell me why the Giants WR's shouldn't have alot of fun against our secondary.

    Still surprised that we are the favorites in the game.

    True, and is as arrogant (if not more so) as he says BB is. BIASED.

    Greetings,
    That was my first thought when the field goald went in for Giants. Cruz is already dominant on grass, and Nicks is playing near Pro-Bowl level himself. Given the issues with the secondary this season, it is very logical to come to that conclusion. Shoot Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin had a field day themselves yesterday.

    I didn't hear specifically what you are talking about, but you took one incident and made it general.

    It's entirely possible that you're right on one specific item, but Francessa is excellent at his job overall.

    Francessa hates BB and the Pats, he is a friend of Parcells (they have owned race horses together) and freaked out when BB left the Jets. BB won't go on the show (he has gon on the show with Joe B). So he will rip the Pats whenever possible.

    Maybe he knows a lot about football, but I can confirm his knowledge of many other sports he covers is abysmal. if that's one of the best, they should shut radio down. He sucks.

    Well maybe he does an excellent job.I listen occasionally to him but he does have a habit at talking over his listeners without listening to them especially jet fans :) or anyone else he is biased against.

    I always wondered what happened to this guy. He used to be a huge part of CBS's college football coverage on Saturdays during the 90s. I thought he was great. Also I think he may have had a presence as a studio analyst for their NFL coverage on Sundays for a couple of years. I guess a radio gig in the country's biggest market is a big deal, but still. What happened?

    I'd say he is the best, period.

    That said, he does indeed have a bias against the Pats. But his clowning of the Jets makes up for that plus I don't really expect a New York host to be gushing about us anyways.

    This is exactly what the Patriots need .... overconfidence by the Giants and their fan base. Does anyone remember the Giants had 7 losses. Does anyone remember the Giants gave up more points this year than they scored. Does anyone remember that the Redskins beat the Giants twice and we beat the Redskins handily. The Giants are hardly infallible, though I hope they and their fan base think they are.

    Destiny is on the Patriots side this time ..... not to mention MHK.
