This year’s Giants, of course, got off to an unthinkably poor 0-6 start. They have rebounded to win four straight, making Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium vs. the Dallas Cowboys a critical one. How does Mara feel about this year’s version of the Giants?
“I certainly feel a little better than I did four weeks ago,” Mara said. “Obviously we were all disappointed and surprised by the poor start that we had, but I am proud of the fact that our team stuck together and we’re now at the point where we can play meaningful games late in the year. Hopefully we can keep this thing going and make a run.”
There’s a problem in the Navy. Someone has been planting homing beacons on battle cruisers — and I only just realized I’ve never seen an episode of NCIS in my life. It’s something about Navy lawyers, and for CBS to be on-brand there has to be a character who hates millennials. Okay got it.
Tony Romo is: Special executive prosecutor Lance “Turmoil” Riggerson and things will never be the same again. He’s a no-nonsense Texan who doesn’t take guff, especially when that raucous Abby steals his fruit snacks — WHICH WERE A GIFT FROM HIS DAUGHTER!
