If John Kasay connects on that 50-yard field goal, we're talking this morning about the Giants being in a free-fall. By the way, I guess you can't call a false start on a kicker. He started forward before the snap and then had to gather himself. I'm wondering if that threw his rhythm off a little bit.
It's sort of unstable to watch how Kasay takes such a narrow path to the ball. That's not the way Steve Hoffman taught me how to approach the ball. My distant cousin Mark Moseley (spells his name wrong) was the last of the great straight-on kickers. Now, let's take a look at what folks around the country are saying about last night's thriller in the New Jersey swamps:
Tom Rock of Newsday always does a nice job of putting things in perspective. He thinks Sunday's win corrected the wayward course the Giants' season appeared to be taking.
Late games can put columnists in difficult situations.
Paul Schwartz of the Post could feel this game slipping away.
Post columnist Steve Serby says the Giants will be home sweet home throughout the playoffs. He opens by providing detailed directions to Giants Stadium. Let me recommend taking the Port Authority if you're in the city. It's like $9 roundtrip.
I love it when a punter talks a little trash after a game. Jeff Feagles says his penchant for coffin corner punts will "be on his tombstone."
Vic Ziegel can still pound out a solid column on a ridiculous deadline. He handles the Derrick Ward angle.
Gary Myers, it's your lucky day. Your column has now been posted twice on the Beast.
Ohm Youngmisuk also weighed in on Ward.
Let's hear from the Giants beat writer for the Times, Joe LaPointe.
William Rhoden of the Times says the Giants will go as far as Eli Manning will take them.
For those of you who are always asking me what books on tape Amani Toomer listens to, here ya go.
