I want to go to bed so bad right now after this awful, awful showing from the San Francisco 49ers. The beer tastes bad, the pizza is no longer tasty, and my Monday night is ruined. The good news, and only solace I can get out of any of this, is that I wound up playing not just George Kittle, Robbie Gould, AND Matt Breida, but Nick Mullens in fantasy. And wound up winning.
How this happened I don’t know.
Back to the Giants game. The offense had its issues, but the defense can. Not. Finish! It’s growing frustrating by the game. When there was a shot of Shanahan shaking his head, I just said, “Yep, he knows what’s about to happen.”
We all knew what was about to happen. I don’t think we knew it would be because of rapid-fire laundry from the refs keeping the Giants on the field, but it happened. I do wonder a lot about the defense now. It desperately needs an edge rusher. Maybe that’s the piece. Who knows. Something needs to change. I’m so sick and tired of the elegant tank. I just want to win some games.
Worst part is, the Giants have a quarterback in Eli Manning that was on the verge of being benched a week ago. “Overrated” they said. “Not as good” they said. Well, after tonight, his career has been saved. All it takes is a matchup against the 49ers to right that ship.
I’ve had enough. I’m off to bed.
