ESPN AGS: Seahawks over Giants

This week we look at the latest team to baffle the dominant NFC East power that is the Philadelphi-- oh? There's a different team this week?

The Seahawks are improving as the season goes on. We look into the where and the how of that, and why they were able to stun the Giants, ruining your suicide pool in the process.

Thank goodness I'm not a ESPN Insider, so I won't be tempted to read anything else about this debacle. The DVOA rankings on the Giants surprise me in that their defense is rated 9th.

My impression is that when the Giants' defense isn't getting pummeled on the ground, they're letting QBs like Tavaris Jackson (TAVARIS JACKSON!) and Charlie Whitehurst go up and down the field. Ugh. Yes, their red zone D had been better than average. But that seems to me more a product of dumb coaches (Thanks, Andy!) and dumb luck (lots of fumbles going the Giants way) than anything else.

"Tarvaris", you idiot.

Commas go inside the quotation marks, you idiot.

Not necessarily. That's a style issue, not a rule.

Da Iggles have had the worst fumble luck I can ever remember, and that includes as 'fumbles' INTs that go off the WR's hands, off a DB, off the WR's feet, to a 3rd DB.
