49er Bandwagoners: Pay Attention

The Giant MELTDOWN that the Giants experienced against the Saints yesterday (a 48-27 BLOWOUT) should serve as a very important lesson to some recent fan additions to the Webbyzone.

The game was essentially all but over at halftime. Five touchdowns in five posessions will pretty much put a game away, and that's what Drew Brees had engineered after the first two quarters.

Do you think Giants fans are clamoring for Eli Manning to be benched today? Replaced with a backup? Do you think Giants fans are starting threads calling for a complete overhaul of the defense? Benching linemen for innefective play? Do you think some Giants fans are now proclaiming "this team will not make the playoffs!"

Of course they aren't. Because, while it's a loss and a bad loss at that, it's just ONE LOSS. That's all it is. It doesn't mean the New York Giants are a House of Cards. It doesn't mean that Eli needs to be replaced. It doesn't call for wholesale changes on defense or some "new strategy."

Heck, they don't even need to trade for Crabtree!

The Saints-Giants game just goes to show that very good NFL teams can have bad games, one-week letdowns, whatever you want to call it. Before yesterday's game, a lot of people were picking the Giants as a possible Super Bowl team.

One bad loss doesn't equal the end of the season. It doesn't mean wholesale changes are needed. It means that good teams lose games. Good teams sometimes get their keesters handed to them. It just happens. This is the NFL kids.

And the 49ers are still a pretty good team. That's what it means.
Nice post, B bird
Of course everyone will say "But the Giants have won a Super Bowl, and what the f**k have we done in the last decade?" Because apparently while one loss is just one loss to the Giants, one loss is the end of the f**king world for the 49ers.

I agree with the team analogy but...

Eli Manning can throw out routes. Eli Manning throws well thrown spirals vs ducks. Eli Manning has won a super bowl. Aren't you comparing apples to oranges in terms of the QB issues??

Most posters complaining about Hill have been complaining about his lack of throwing skills since last season. It didn't miraculously start last week.

Giants have made the post season 5 straight years and have a Super Bowl win.

The 49ers have missed the playoffs 6 straight years.

That's a fact that just can't be ignored. BTW how can someone be a 49er bandwagoner right now? We haven't made the playoffs in 6 years, and believe me nobody's jumping on the Shaun Hill wagon.

The Saints are f'n scary!
All good points, and yeah, the Saints look like the real-deal this year. You can't say they are due.
im usually all for a positive thread

Eli Manning - has been a starter for years has taken his team to the playoffs and won a super bowl

Shaun Hill- has had his defense win him games and throws wounded ducks

We were wandering in the desert with Moses (aka Terry Donahoe, Dennis Erickson,
Mike Nolan) or would that be the three wisemen.
