This seems like a match-up made more for Thursday Night Football, in that, the potential derp is strong with this game… but people forget Sunday Night Football derp can be equally as, if not more entertaining. TNF merely adopted the derp; SNF was born in it, molded by it. Clearly, the New York Giants offense is improving on a week-by-week basis, with Eli Manning not looking this good since the epoch of Coughlin face being level 8 red. Not the level 18 it is lately. Much of that credit goes to Ben McAdoo, despite having the name: Ben McAdoo. The Eagles are 4-1, but have looked inconsistently innovative. Also, Riley Cooper still looks like a racist. And, if you want my fair analysis, it’s my expert opinion that both those issues can be blamed on Nick Foles, who, coming off such a robust 2013 27 touchdown performance, has regressed a bit this season. (I’m kidding, it’s not really his fault. The tempo clock is probably it.) But that’s okay, because LeSean McCoy has already dried up my tear ducts and is now on pace for producing that ever elusive ulcer WebMD has been warning me about since college. But if there’s one thing for certain, a NFC East prime-time game is always historic. Not moon-landing historic… probably more Titanic historic here. So get your drinks and pastry snacks (AKA pizza) ready…
Note: I’ll be doing Kona’s Island Lager for the beer portion, and Black Label for the shots portion.
Take one sip of beer if…
The play clock, during an Eagles possession, actually gets under 15 seconds before the ball is snapped.
The Giants get into the redzone and end up settling for a field goal.
The words innovative, tempo, or revolutionary are used to describe Chip Kelly’s offense
You see a Giants defensive player put up his hands in confusion.
Take one shot of liquor if…
Coughlin is chewing gum, cocks his sideways, and puts his hands on his hips.
