:giants: (1-0) The Giants handled the Panthers last week, 31-18, and hope to jump on the Colts while they are down. QB Eli Manning will be more than motivated to even the series 1-1 against older brother, Peyton.

:colts: (0-1) After suffering a beat down from division-rival Houston last week, the Colts hope to rebound with a win in the second, "Manning Bowl."

It's a little too early to use the phrase "must win", but 0-2 would be one nasty hole to fall in-especially with that brutal stretch we have in the middle of the season. We will have a tough time making the playoffs if we lose tonight. There are just too many good, hungry teams in the AFC this year.

Can't dig a deeper hole tonight.....gotta get the W

Yeah, there aren't any must-win Week Two games, but do need to get a W tonight, although I don't think we will.

The defense is terrible right now, and the offensive line is god-awful. All we have going for us is Peyton, and our line won't be able to give him any time. He'll have to pull a win out of his *** tonight.

I've been highly optimistic about this team the last 10 years. My hunch just keeps telling me we're going to be bad this year. I've felt this way since the draft. I still hope I'm wrong, but after week 1 I'm not seeing anything to change my mind.

I truly believe this will be a very rough year. I don't see us winning this game either. *sigh*

Same message now applies to the Colts defense.

Stryder
09-19-2010, 09:05 PM
Is it me or do flags for pass interference get thrown way too late, i.e. after the WR has made a demonstrative action towards the ref/ump, so that it looks like the ref/ump is now calling the penalty because of the action by the WR and not because of the actual interference....???

Trader Joe
09-19-2010, 09:23 PM
We have the best pass defense in the NFL. You better be able to run against us, because Lord knows you are up **** creek without a paddle if you think you're going to throw against us.

Boy, you talk about playing right into the Colts hands. Someone told the offensive line to open some holes. The Giants started out with the dime package so the Colts just run run run the ball. As soon as the Giants safeties start cheating because of the running....BOOM....long TD to Clark. Getting a lead causes Eli to take a chance and throw into TRIPLE coverage. Now, with a 24 point lead, the Colts will completely unchain Freeney and Mathis and let the DB's mop up the mess that Eli throw out there. It ain't over for sure, but the Giants could not have had a worse first half.

Lacey getting burnt, this is his first game though so I'll give him a pass on that play. And LOL at Collingsworth saying the Giants just beat the Colts best cover man. Um no, Powers and Hayden are both far superior to Lacey. You have to wonder if some of these guys do any research before a game.

Stuck behind a garbage offensive line. Addai's always been this good when he hasn't been having to break tackles three yards deep in the backfield.

I think the fan had every right to hang on to that helmet. I say shame on the Colts for taking it from him, and even more shame on the Marion county sheriff that played the, "I'm a big bad man" card ripped out of his hands. I'd be pissed as all get out if a football helmet came flying at me whether it was accident or not. Jacobs should have been told to go find another helmet.

IMHO, I can never call Caldwell useless. Dude fired Ron Meeks and Russ Purnell both in his first week of the job and brought in guys who have really improved our defense and special teams over the past year or so.

Couldn't have said it better. Caldwell is good because he can handle that as a coach. Knows who is going to get him there and who isn't. That's all a head coach should really do IMO...He knows when to leave it to the people who know more than him and make him look good, and who doesn't. Something Dungy seemed to lack probably due to his extreme loyalty.

Giants fans said he should've worn it and tell Coughlin he's going to play in his place... He would've been a better option than Jacobs.

Personally I think he should've taken it and run.

Brandon Jacobs Apologizes for Helmet Toss Into Indianapolis Crowd

Brandon Jacobs tossed his helmet into the standsBrandon Jacobs lost his cool Sunday night, and his helmet too. The disgruntled Giants running back apologized for unintentionally tossing his helmet into the stands during the third quarter of New York's 38-14 loss to the Colts.

Jacobs, who struggled with just eight yards on four carries, said he was trying to throw his helmet behind the visitors' bench, but it got caught onto the sticky leather of his gloves and instead went into the stands. Jacobs was apparently upset after he was stopped for no gain on a cutback rushing attempt.

"I was frustrated and went to throw it down on the ground, and it got caught on my finger and went into (the stands)," he said. "I apologize for that. It was frustration on my part."

In an odd scene, security then had to retrieve the helmet from a reluctant fan who wanted to keep the helmet. After some back-and-forth haggling, a security guard snatched the helmet away from the fan.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he didn't see the incident. While Jacobs' playing time was heavily reduced after the toss, Coughlin said it was because Jacobs was ineffective on the field and the Giants were trying to play catch-up. Jacobs also had received a personal-foul penalty for a late hit earlier in the game.

"From what I understand, he lost his poise and did something he shouldn't have done, and if someone was hurt, then we would all feel bad about that," Coughlin said.


Security retrieves Brandon Jacobs' helmet According to NBC's Andrea Kremer, NFL security plans to interview the fan who wound up with the helmet.

Jacobs will likely receive a fine from the league, especially considering the precedent for fines when players have even tossed footballs into the stands. In December 2009, Rams running back Steven Jackson was fined $5,000 for tossing a ball up to the St. Louis fans following a touchdown run. Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes, then with the Jets, was fined $5,000 last December for tossing a ball into the crowd after an interception.

"I did not mean to do that and everybody who knows me knows I did not mean to do something like that," Jacobs told The Star-Ledger. "The whole world could fall down on me and I wouldn't have done anything like that.

"I apologize to Indy, first of all, and their fans, our organization. It's just something that happened that shouldn't have happened."

According to the New York Daily News, Jacobs got into a heated, profanity-laced discussion with a reporter after the game when asked if he was pulled by Coughlin because of the helmet toss. Jacobs reportedly apologized to the reporter and explained why the question made him angry.

It's been a rough September for Jacobs, who has publicly griped about his role in sharing backfield duties with Ahmad Bradshaw. In Sunday's loss, Bradshaw got 17 carries to Jacobs' 4, and it's expected that Bradshaw retains that starting position throughout the season.

The fan should have been able to keep the helmet. Jacobs looked like he was gonna cry when he didn't have his helmet for a while.

I do too but it wouldn't surprise me if the NFL didn't want him to keep it I have a hard time believing the LOS crew would care if a fan got to keep the helmet of an opposing player otherwise.

"Remember fans, if it comes into the stands, it's yours to keep"...

I will admit, after last week I had begun to think the Colts' number was up. That after all these years, the bag of tricks was used up and everyone had their number. After last night, I take it back. That was certainly one of the best games I've seen them play in a long time.

To be fair, it's not like Jacobs left his helmet on the bench and the fan went and got it. He threw it at them. The car owner would have to throw the keys at you, not leave them in their vehicle.

I don't think the fan has the right to keep the helmet, but I think he should just for the fact that it was a completely stupid thing to do. If it was me, the helmet would probably would have quickly became a bowl for popcorn, or might of had some coke/beer accidently spilled in it.

I really doubt I'd do it, but it would Jacobs definately would deserve it.

'SNF' Manning bowl
delivers for NBC

Averages a 15.2 household rating, fifth best ever

By Toni Fitzgerald
Sep 20, 2010

Manning Bowl II wasn't very competitive, but it was a big draw for NBC last night.

"Sunday Night Football," which featured Peyton and Eli Manning's NFL teams squaring off for the second time in primetime, drew a 15.2 household rating, according to Nielsen metered-market ratings, fifth-best in "SNF" history.

The game, won 38-14 by Peyton's Colts over Eli's Giants, was up 3 percent over the previous Manning Bowl in 2006, which averaged a 14.7 and also resulted in a Colts win, though a much closer one, 26-21.

It continues a big start to the year for football, with last weekend's Washington Redskins-Dallas Cowboys the highest-rated game in "SNF" history.

NBC finished first for the night among 18-49s with a 6.7 average overnight rating and an 18 share. CBS was second at 3.5/10, Fox third at 2.0/5, ABC fourth at 1.1/3 and Univision fifth at 1.0/3.

As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback. Seven-day DVR data won’t be available for several weeks. Thirty-eight percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.

Also, ratings for NBC's "Sunday Night Football" are approximate as fast nationals measure timeslot and not actual program data.
