Musings of a Middle-Aged Mad Man


Homer Jones

Wondering if when the Giant players travel they prefer the “enhanced” pat down employed by the TSA or the “see-it-all” xray?

Do you get to choose your TSA agent?

Message to Jim Hermann-Hoping the linebackers fill on a more consistent basis. The one weak link on the defense must rise up to stone Adrian Peterson.

During this Christmas season let us not be haunted by ghosts of Xmas past in the form of Visanthe Shiancoe.

Other than from an historical context does it really matter who starts, Favre or Tavaris Jackson?

Vikings on a 2 game win streak, albeit against suspect opponents.

Hoping the Giants come out with ill-intent in their hearts. Do not give the Vikings any confidence. Beating the GMen is their Super Bowl. As Ivan Drago would say “we must crush them”

Let’s ease the walking wounded into the lineup as opposed to trial under fire. It ain’t broke so don’t rush to fix.

Giants love to tackle the ball and Peterson has a propensity to give up the ball. Somethings gotta give.

Vikes like to run misdirection and Percy Harvin is one dangerous dude although his status is doubtful/questionable due to migraines. Take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning…

The Purple Men are stout on the run but Giants should still pound. Bradshaw, ball high and tight.

Use the newly healed receivers to spread field and keep safety off scrimmage. Run the ball off those sets.

Still remember when the Giants traded Frantic Fran Tarkenton to Minnesota for Bob Grimm and 2 other forever forgotten players. Grim indeed as Tarkenton went on to 3 Super Bowls as the Giants wallowed in something less than mediocrity.

Gotta love Pat Flaherty.

Jim Marshall, he of the famous Purple People Eaters and one of the truly great players of his era (recovered a record setting 30 fumbles and played in 282 straight games) and yet will forever be remembered for running the wrong way with a fumble recovery on October 25th, 1964 resulting in a safety for the S.F. 49ers.

DE Jared Allen has recorded a sack in 5 straight games.

OLB Chad Greenway at 6-2 242 is near the top of the league in tackles.

Looking forward to a collision of the 2 titans; Greenway and Brandon Jacobs. That is more than 500 lbs. of men. Reminiscent of Sam Huff and Jim Brown

Best Giant receivers since the days of Del Shofner and Homer Jones. That is more than 40 years!

Wishing the Vikings still played in the old metropolitan stadium. Miss that Viking guy with the steam coming off his face while being oblivious to the weather.

 Where’s Waldo? Or should I say Clint Sintim #52.

You may have noticed that I started this blog (actually thought I finished it) before the announced delay since it is only now that I have my first mention of the postponement.

This is a new one, Giants-Vikings postponed! The Vikes really need a new home.

Guess Brett Favre really does live under a charmed star. Only he can summon the universe to give him one more day of rest.

Happy I do not work for the Metropolitan Sports Authority…Hate to shovel snow particularly off a roof…

Staying overnight in Kansas City- Here’s to Motel6  keeping the light on…

Hoping the Giants take their collective frustrations out on the Vikings.

This delay certainly shortens their prep time for the Philadelphia game. As if they needed more challenges…Stay safe, stay together and just win baby!
