Can you say shit show?
This is going to be a fun one to write, because my father hates the Oakland Raiders more than so he will enjoy the piling of crap onto the giant triciretops dung pile.
The Raiders couldn’t get it done against a New York Giants team that is not officially out of the playoff hunt until they hit nine losses because of the pathetic NFC East.
Eli Manning was not good, completing only 12 out of 22 passes with a passer rating of 70.3.
The problem for the Raiders? Quarterback Terrell Pryor was even worse going 11 for 26 and only 122 yards through the air. The departure of Al Davis and the culture of “Just Win Baby” seems to have been replaced by “Let’s Lose Quickly And Go Home I Guess”.
It was a pretty rough one to watch and the Giants will I guess carry some sort of pathetic momentum from winning this one, but they will not learn a lot from the tape that is for sure. Pryor’s performance was due partly to a knee tweak, but also just poor decision making as well. His zero touchdowns and one interception certainly did not help matters.
Best of luck to the Giants in what will be a truly shameful stumble to the finish line for whatever undeserving team stumbles into a playoff berth just because they were in the NFC Least as I will refer to it for the rest of the regular season.
