    ...wins a Super Bowl ring with this year's Giants? Just let that thought sink in for a second. He stands a good chance of getting a freaking Super Bowl ring.

    (Sigh)

    So this is why we must root against the Giants. I wish I didn't have to do it, but it has to be done. It has to be done. Period.

    No way I'm rooting for the Titans, though. Not for a SB win.

    Who cares if Mr. Mittens gets a ring for carrying a clipboard. I say good for him, if it happens.

    I have thought about this...

    The Giants make it to the NFC Championship, Eli gets hurt and can't play in the SB. The defense wins the NFC Championship and David Carr starts in the SB.:mcnugget:

    It would be entertaining though.

    Of all the ex-Texans...

    I'd just have to laugh. It would be pretty funny.

    I wouldn't consider him "winning" a ring. It'd be more like being awarded a ring.

    At least the K, P and backup players actually do something for the team - unlike Mickey Mouse.

    Would you rather Vince Young & Bud Adams win a SB ring? I thought Carr was a disaster here and wanted him gone however I have nothing personal against him. Contrary to my initial reaction I am currently OK having him as Eli's backup. Believe it or not I think he can do OK in the Giants offense since he doesn't have to do too much.

    carr pretty much sucks in any offense. the giants ask more of their QB than you may think. defenses respect Manning. there is no defense in the world that would respect or be afraid of a Carr-led offense. Just blitz him and watch him go into the Fresno Tuck and curl up in the fetal position. It's pretty simple gameplan to beat him.

    I would think it would be wierd for Manning to get hurt and for David to have to come in. Oh boy, the NY media would have a field day with one of his performances.

    Carr sucks and dude should be walking down some fashion runway with a manpurse and has no business in the league. The Giants better hope they never find out what Carr is made of....he is made of doggie doo.

    I wouldn't think much of it. Keep in mind Danny Clarke is starting for them, though.

    One for one for 5 yards and a TD.

    Five carries for -five yards.

    No ints. no fumbles, no helicopter impersonations and no injuries.

    Maybe it was our O-line...:D

    :jk:

    :tomato: and :hunter: @ .. :coffee:


    Oh... It wouldn't bother me a bit if he got a ring.

    It's not a manpurse!

    It's active man gear.

    I wouldn't care at all. Lots of guys who aren't worth a damn get Super Bowl rings and just being handed one for standing on the sideline doing nothing would be in my opinion kind of fitting for David. He was drafted first overall and given a mountain of money. He was given the starting QB job without any competition and he wasn't allowed to lose it no matter how badly he played. He was given all the credit for things that went right and took none of the blame for the horrendous sack totals and pitiful offensive output until the very end when it became undeniable that he was a major part of the problem.

    In short he's been handed everything he's ever gotten in the NFL so why not hand him a free Super Bowl ring too? He could never possibly be proud of it or feel deserving of it.

    You'd better knock on wood or find a few dozen four leaf clovers. Just the utterance of those words might have a butterfly like effect that would put Eli out with an injury for a few games. Just the mention of it is like opening Pandora's Box.

    Disagree with that. I'm guessing just about any player who has a Super Bowl ring probably feels proud to have gotten one. Whether they played a little or a lot, they were part of that team and contributed to that team.
