Game 7: 21-14 (L)  
This one just depressed the hell out of me. As amazing a game as the defense put up, I had hoped the offense would be inspired to play well, too. You just don't win games when you throw four INTs.

The safety made me want to cry. The Steelers' long snapper got hurt, so Harrison had to snap the ball on a punt deep in Steeler territory. He snapped the ball over the punter's head. The punter- Berger- had been limping all over the field all day. He couldn't catch up to the ball before it rolled out of the end zone.

Tons of injuries, too. They're going to be in horrible shape when they face the Redskins next week.

As an Eagles fan, I feel empathy for you. Seriously. Not fun watching a M*A*S*H unit ward be your team.

Hopefully it's nothing that the majority of these players can't bounce back from for next week.

One game away from winning the World Series, amirite? Good luck with sealing the deal! ;)

Thanks! I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Obviously, I'll keep everyone posted...

Hehe! This game was especially painful for me, as my job is based in Albany, NY. My coworkers who are into football are mostly Giants fans. Fortunately, they were very polite and respectful both before and after the match-up. I didn't have many worries about that, I work with a good group of people. =)

The Giants are going to be just fine against the Cowboys this week. We, on the other hand, will need that extra day of rest before playing the Redskins...

...and I'm totally muting the television for Monday Night Football this time, lest I punch a hole through my TV screen when Tony Kornheiser makes some offhanded retarded suggestion, like electing to kick after winning an OT coin toss.

It hurt my soul...what I got to see of it. I was subjected to the 49er game, as I live in Raider territory. BUT! I am more than capable of shutting the bastards up when they start on me, which is a weekly occurrence.

Raider fan giving me beans.

LOL! It's nice that the Raiders have a core of fans who support them through good times and bad, but where the hell do they get their nerve?

I've heard that there are websites where you can watch streaming broadcasts of games that aren't being shown in your area. I'll try to track one down for you!
