This morning's spin around the NFL. Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger ties up some loose ends around the New York Giants.

I had only planned on doing a little preview, since I’m not generally a betting woman.  However.  Now that Aaron’s given you his picks, I can’t let him completely take over my turf without chiming in myself, now can I?

Apologies for the lag time.  Work + life + inability to visit an NFL page without reading about how great Warner was against Green Bay = Holly took some time off from football. After watching the weekend’s games, however, I’m left with a few lingering thoughts: 1.  The Cowboys-Vikings game reminded me at points of each of the Packers-Vikings games.  In each game against Minnesota, the Packers were down significantly at the start of the 4th quarter (28-14, 31-20 – 24-3 in 3d!), but managed to tighten the score in the face of serious pressure from Minnesota’s front four.  On Sunday, Dallas was still theoretically “in the game” going into the 4th quarter.  Yes, they were down 17-3, yes, Flozell Adams had left the game before halftime, and yes, Romo was getting his butt kicked.  But 14 points wasn’t so much that Dallas’s offense couldn’t make something happen.  The Vikings were letting them stick around.

Before anything else, I just want to say thank you.  Thank you for reading, for giving me feedback, and for letting me geek out on football stats without pointing and laughing (overtly, anyway).  It’s been a treat.

Everyone does it...staring out of your car window as you pass a particularly nasty accident on the highway.  You hope that the drivers are OK, of course, but you also want to get an eyeful so that, when you finally get to where you're going, you can say, "You'll never guess what I saw today."  Millions of people tuned in to the October 15 "Balloon Boy" incident, riveted by both the potential tragedy and the resulting spectacle of the media ploy.  Despite our claims that we "try not to get sucked into the drama that surrounds a bad situation," be it a twenty-car wreck or Britney Spears' latest public meltdown, we all have those moments where we see a situation and think, "Thank God (or fate or common sense) that's not me."
