Out of the Blue

Last night was a tough way to open the football season for a Giants fan, and the scheduling I mentioned yesterday means an extended wait for the possibility of redemption. The team's defensive backfield is not their strength to start with, but injuries had the fifth-string cornerback playing with the ones last night. That's not even a tertiary, much less a secondary, and while I always want the NFL season to last longer, if the team can't defend passes better (presumably by generating more of their famed pass rush), it's going to be a long season in that negative way. Anyway, I'm 0-1 on my picks... nowhere to go but up!

I was a bit surprised Witten made it into the game. Lacerated spleen? Just rub some dirt on it!

Yeah, he's a pretty tough dude. OTOH, he had a terrible game with drops and penalties, so he seemed like a liability out there.
