Those were the headlines when we destroyed the Jets. "What's wrong with the Jets? Is it Teebow time?" Now it's gonna be, "Are the Superbowl champs in trouble? Will they make the playoffs? Should they bring Strahan out of retirement? Should they stop putting mustards in the corn-dogs at Met Life stadium?"
Generally I have been disappointed with the media coverage in general of our team this year. Yeah this week the Giants are boosting our visibility but here we are rolling, yet seconds are spent discussing us versus minutes for other teams (or hours for New York teams). And yeah SFTifoso is right, if we destroyed the Giants, the focus would be on what is wrong with them, not what is right with us. Now at least this year we are getting love as people pick us or talk us up, but its like "San Fran best team in the league? Probably. Now lets move on to the Saints latest loss and how Drew Brees feels about it." Heck even when we were the Sunday night game, here was their coverage team on our field after a big win and they were like "yup, awesome. Now how about Eli Mannings day?" In the years past there was no shortage of highlights of us getting whipped from pillar to post. Now that we are doing the whuppin, is it too much to ask that the media cover it?
