    If all it will take to acquire Chad Johnson is a third round pick that will be ridiculous. Dare I say Belichick would be slightly interested in Johnson if that is the case? Resign Moss and you have probably the greatest WR corps ever.

    Here's a hint: If you swat a defensive back with your giant left meathook, and he pulls you down as he is falling, it's a non-call.

    Oh, and replace Bengals with Colts and T.J. with Wayne and you have my sentiments regarding Dungy's acknowledgment that the yardage mark was a goal going into last night's game.

    On Brady:

    Is he developing a man crush on Brady too?

    That d-bag King spoiled the Oscar-front runner for me. He can go to hell.

    I found this part of the article the most interesting...in his rewards section he wrote "Coach: Bill Belichick, New England. The toughest call I had to make, and I empathize with those who say they can't vote a man coach of the year who was sanctioned more harshly than any coach in NFL history. I gave long and hard consideration to Mike McCarthy of Green Bay, because the Pack vastly overachieved with his steady and smart leadership. But it came down to this: Did the Patriots gain an advantage this year because of Belichick's apparent history of authorizing the taping of defensive signals by the other team's coaches? I think the advantage, at best, was infinitesimal. Whereas the edge gained by Shawne Merriman for using illegal performance-enhancing substances can lead to a tangible advantage for a team, I don't think the taping of defensive signals for a few minutes in the opening game of the season compares. And the accomplishment of this team, and its head coach, are too overwhelming to overlook."

    Sounds like a bit of backtracking to me from his harsh stance earlier this year. I have to think this is for two reasons: One, having researched the matter further, as I believed he said he would, he found nothing, which doesn't surprise me; and two, upon further research, he found that such taping probably doesn't give much of an in game advantage. Then again, he could just be kissing their a** now because everyone else is, but I hope for the best.

    Great Peter King MMQB

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/peter_king/12/30/week17/index.html

    I know, I know, everyone was beating him up earlier in the season for his emotional and unfair reaction to Cameragate (I wonder if he's still promising to "unearth so more info on the situation"), but the guy can write and has amazing access.

    He really encapsulates how I felt about this game and how noble the NY Giants and Coach Coughlin approached it. It was good for the NFL, and, I think, a momnetous game in its history because of the fight the Giants put up - - out of nothing more than pride.

    Also DO read the Fine Fifteen part on P.3. Particularly his take on Marvin Harrison's knee and what it portends for the Colts. Interesting.......

    Re: Great Peter King MMQB

    It's a solid article, and he's been getting better recently. I think the negative feedback he received for his irrational and unfair treatment of BB during the entire cameragate thing has made him calm down as the season has gone on. He was exposed on EEI a couple of times, and I think he's backtracked and let it go a little.

    Still, at the end of the day, he doesn't understand football any better than the average fan, and his one redeeming quality is that he's a prolific snitch, and even when he's talking about his post-game locker room talk with Brady, it feels like something too personal/specific to talk about, and just sounds like name-dropping. But as JayZ says, this is the era when snitching is the shyt, so props to Peter King for always revealing every word someone says to him like some stereotyped antagonist teenage girl in a Freddie Prinze esque high school romantic comedy.

    Re: Great Peter King MMQB

    Didn't like Coughlin's decision to play the starters when I first heard it last Monday, don't like it now, and I'm not saying that as a Pats fan. He provided a compelling game to watch. Fine. But why risk injury, waste time with game planning, and wear out your players over a meaningless game when you have a playoff game one week later? :confused:

    If the Jints ride the momentum of this close game to victory in TB, I'll shut up, but in order to do that they're going to have to overcome a bunch of issues that they could have avoided by sitting the starters.

    I think Peter learned a very hard lesson over the course of this season.

    The AP voters are casting their ballots for COY today. Peter said before the game he was leaning towards BB. I'm pretty confident he made the right decision, the one that truly is in the best interest of the game. Not sure enough of his peers will. Curren was talking last week about either having a vote or if he had one. His decision would be different. Of course he also scoffed at the idea that this meaningless to most game would come close to topping the ratings for Colts-Pats.

    Peter can turn a phrase. This really got to me. Wish it did to more here.

    "As the Patriots moved through the paparazzi scrum on the field toward the locker room, Welker bumped into owner Bob Kraft and said, "How's your heart?''

    The hearts of both coaches, and both teams, were large on this night. The night was so noble, so exhilarating. Players who didn't have to play, megastars like Strahan and Brady and Moss, wanted to play. The Patriots for perfection and the Giants for the pride of the game. "There's nothing but positives about tonight,'' said Coughlin, who is not a moral-victory kind of guy but recognized the momentousness of the night. "No negatives come out of this game.''

    Usually, a crowd at Giants Stadium is something like a Dodger Stadium crowd. In L.A., fans start leaving in the top of the seventh -- and that might be generous. At Giants Stadium, fans often leave at the first sign of a rout, but they stayed in their seats, largely, when the Patriots went up 38-28. And the TV fans stayed too. The combined 34.5 TV rating was the largest of the season for a football game. Next-highest: Colts-Pats game of the year, with a 33.8 rating

    As Saturday turned into Sunday, player-turned-telecaster Cris Collinsworth said the game made him proud to be associated with the game. John Madden thought so much of it that he called Coughlin on Sunday to congratulate him on playing his guys and them playing so well. I heard a few Giants fans harp on the injured players, and I thought: Sad. Just sad. Here's art on a sporting canvas, and some people can't appreciate it.

    I did. So did a stiff-upper-lipped losing coach and a quarterback we'll one day acknowledge as one of the five best quarterbacks ever to take a snap. Yes, a night like this doesn't happen often in sports. Cherish it.
