In my haste to make deadline last night, I forgot to include in today's coverage what Matt Hasselbeck said about the freakish hit he took in the third quarter of the game. I asked him about it.
On third-and-7 in the third quarter, Hasselbeck ran out of the pocket and upfield. Before he could slide down, though, Washington's Fred Smoot upended him and sent Hasselbeck tumbling head over heels. The crowd, even those of us in the press box, flinched with a collective "Ooohh!!!"
It turns out Hasselbeck was fortunate.
"It was a little awkward," Hasselbeck said. "I probably should have thrown it. I thought I was over the line of scrimmage, that's why I didn't throw it. He (Smoot) actually broke my thigh pad. It's a good thing, some guys don't wear thigh pads, so it's a good thing I wear thigh pads."

Also noticed that Matt whacked his hand again on a follow through of a pass on a helmet (can't recall which quarter). Status?

it's okay, we all saw what we did to the 36 year old qb, now this week we face one even older (better, but still older)...go seahawks!

If, big If? Gaints beat Cowboys and Seahawks beat Packers? Do we get another Home game? how does that work?

Yes, it would be New York at Seattle. The higher seed plays at home. So as the third seed, if Seattle beats 2-seeded Green Bay they would always play at home against whoever could beat the 1-seeded Cowboys.

If Eli has an "on day"...a "good Eli day" (and he's been "on" more than "off this year") ... and IF their pass rush can hurry and knock around Romo the Giants have a decent shot of knockin' the Cowboys off.Plaxico has beeen good, but no Shockey playing, BUT...their running game has been strong enough, and also there's a chance T.O may not play, but the Giants have health problems and the Boys are at home...we'll see...
Meanwhile remember if Bannister had run the correct route we very well woulda won the 1st game ?, we were getting close to the game winning? field goal...AND the Falcons beat them as underdogs in 2002-2003 in the playoffs AT GREEN BAY
So it can be done...will it...we'll all have to wait and see

We were better on the road than our record indicated. We got stomped by Pitt and stunned by Carolina, but Cleveland, Arizona and Atlanta all could have gone either way. (And I don't think Matt would have had the turnover problems that suddenly plagued our second team.)
