What Would Buddy Do?
So how many NY Giants will need to be arrested in order for the Birds to have a chance Sunday?

While the Harris Smith, er, Plaxico Burress story is dominating the national sports media this morning, here in New York the story is actually bigger than that. Not that it’s a matter of greater importance in New York, it’s just that the local media is different here. That is, New York has tabloids. And this has the chance to be one of the bigger tabloid stories of the year – bigger even than A-Rod and Madonna, bigger even than Client Number 9? (Actually, no, not bigger than Client Number 9, that was the best one this year by a lot, though it might have been closer if Ashley Alexandra Dupre wasn’t such a looker.)

Given the timing of the story, and the part where it looks like other people besides Plax will need to do some splainin’ about their big night out, and the part where the tabloids will 72-pt-font themselves into a seizure this week, and the part where the Eagles got a few extra days of healing in due to their Thursday game, you might think things were lining up well for the Birds to give the Giants a game on this coming Sunday in New Jersey.

Ah, we can only dream.

I watched the Giants – Redskins game yesterday. The Giants comfortably beat a pretty stout Redskins team (one whose offensive and defensive lines handled the Eagles two months ago). They beat them because they physically pushed them around at the line of scrimmage. Eli, Schmeli. This Giants team is huge at the line of scrimmage, and I don’t expect that will be impacted by this week’s episode of CSI: NFL.

Unless, of course, it turns out that Justin Tuck and three-fifths of the offensive line were also at the Latin Quarter last Friday.

Ugh.

(Don’t worry, I’ll work hard to convince myself that the Eagles can win Sunday. I am going to see it in person, after all. And I’d like to not “dread” said trip.)
