    Geez, after watching the Giants iconic collapse in the 4th QTR after leading 31-10 I couldn't help but think of the Buffalo game.

    The Giants were cruising to the NFC East Championship and then just folded. Of course to give credit where credit is due Michael Vick is one sick individual.

    Giants fans are going to be calling for Coughlin's head after this. If he goes Cowher will be there in a NY minute.

    Aren't the Giants still 9-5 and in very good position for the playoffs?

    Yes, they will probably make the wild card however they won't go far. They just blew the NFC East title. The Giants aren't owned by Bob McNair and I am telling their fans are going to want Coughlin gone. Actually they are wanting that now. I would tell you to visit their official board but it has crashed.

    Oh stop it.

    Destroyed the Bills the week before. 35-3. Frank "Who?" Reich. In the playoffs.

    Today sucked for you but your 31-10 Giants will never be near the Houston Oilers collapse.

    I said when it was going down I couldn't help but think of the Oilers/Bills game. The biggest difference between the 2 games is this was not a playoff game as in the loser goes home. However it pretty much determined who won the division.

    The 4th QTR collapse of this game was actually far worse than the Oilers/Bills game. The Giants were up 31-10 with 8 minutes to go. When the 4th QTR started in Buffalo with Oilers were only up by 4 ... 35-31.

    Getting p'wned by DeSean Jackson has got to be a helluva better than Frank Reich. I mean.. they had lost Jim Kelly in the first half. Long way to go before even coming close to those ill-fated Oilers.

    I hope this game makes it onto NFL Replay this week. I'd love to watch it.

    Don't get me wrong. It's not like I am as devasted for this game I was for the Oilers. 1.) I was a bigger Oilers fan than I have ever been a Giants fan. 2.) I have seen the Giants win Super Bowls, with the Oilers that was just a dream that you just knew would never be reality. Choking to the Bills gave you a feeling that it would never happen.

    All Texans fans need to soak this in. The Texans arent the only franchise who cant finish a game.

    Starting the game is a larger problem.

    They just showed an updated list of the top ten greatest comebacks on NFLN. Your Giants/Eagles game came in at #2. Buffalo's got a firm grip on #1. Ugh.

    I have fully caught up on last weekend's comeback. Ouch. That just fricking stings. I'm really sorry, Hookem.
    I hope this game makes NFL Replay. I have not seen the announcements yet.
