After a pretty quiet week, Kevin (punch me in the throat) Gilbride decided to whine about Justin Smith’s apparent murderous holding infractions while playing defensive tackle. Disregarding the obvious notion that DTs are usually the ones behing held, Jim Harbaugh fired back his own incendiary comments, calling the claims, well incendiary. Thing is, DTs hold. They all do it. Smith will hold 2 guys if it’ll give Willis a clean path to a ball carrier. Since this is something that is never called, or even looked for, you have to wonder what the fuck Gilbride is squalking about. Although you have to take into accoun\t Tom Coughlin’s comments that he’s curious as to why his team comes in as the underdog.
Really, Tom? You are on the road against a team with a better record than you? And you are going to play the ‘poor us’ card? Maybe if you had beaten the Iggles, people would take you more seriously. If anything the Giants have to be one of the most whining teams in the history of football. And it starts with Coughlin. He’s constantly whining to the refs, the media, his coaches, his players, his grandma, and anyone else within earshot. Time for a beat-down. As crappy as the Giants have looked, I don’t think they play as shitty as they did against the Browns or Cowboys. This will be a tough game, one that means a lot more to NY than the Niners, but in the end, the Niners prevail, 28-20.
SHout out to the SF Giants and their quest for the World Series title.
