Giants v. Bucs: A Twitter Review
Yesterday’s Giants win was an epic comeback with more ups and down’s than the Oregon Ducks mascot in a shoot out. Eli Manning pulled off a flawless performance of Jeckel and Hyde, and the team somehow managed to win a game that we had no business winning over a team that they had no business losing to. As a fan, it was one hell of a trip. Me and Joe Bianchino, my Cover 2 co-host tweeted our way through the guts, to the glory throughout the game. Here’s how the drama went down, from the eyes of Giants fans:
Giants get ball first… Hakeem Nicks makes a big play
@GameOnBrixy Apparently that foot is alright. Nice start.
@Joe_1045 Beautiful... Establish the run now
Alas, no dice early
@Joe_1045 Wilson has to grab that ball. Drive killer
@GameOnBrixy Amazing how the Giants are immune to momentum. Drop number one of the day courtesy of David Wilson - his hands are exquisite.
The Bucs take possession, and establish their pass game
@Joe_1045 DJ Ware and Greg Schiano's Strahan gap teeth are giving me '07 Giants flashbacks
@GameOnBrixy Corey's Web looking extra holey this year. New York Giants secondary, a study in un-athleticism.
The Giants drive down the field with a good blend of rushing and throwing, then attempt to throw a touchdown pass to quite an odd target…
@GameOnBrixy WILL BEATTY?!?!?!?!?!?! WE NEED TO GET LESS ATHLETIC?!?!?!?!?
The half continues, and frustration begins to mount…
@GameOnBrixy Saw Hixon to do that half a dozen times to Coe in camp. Dude is brutal.
@GameOnBrixy Opposing Wide Receivers aren't even bothering putting moves on the NYG secondary. They run, they're open.
Joe B has the attention span of a strung out toddler, however he does speak the truth.
@GameOnBrixy Thinking about buying a Chase Blackburn jersey. Thoughts?
Back to the frustration
@GameOnBrixy Beatty on the pass route, Hynoski at tailback. What are we the Jets?
@GameOnBrixy Well...At least it's almost hockey seas-OH GOD DAMMIT!
This continues for a while, it was a rough half. Allow me to fast forward to the glorious comeback by Eli and the troops…
@Joe_1045 Andre Brown: I GOTTA RUN GAME! HE GOT ONE TOO!
@GameOnBrixy That was the "Screw you guys, I'm just going to get this done," drive from Eli Manning - with an assist from Andre Brown.
@GameOnBrixy Run wild Black Unicorn. Run wild.
@GameOnBrixy Honest question, what do you think Ron Dixon is doing right now?
Again, Bianchino losses sight of the task at hand…
@GameOnBrixy Seriously? Bones is still making new episodes?
@Joe_1045 Bones looks good with the blonde locks...
And Eli O’Clock it was indeed as the Giants overcame a huge deficit to take the game 41-34
@Joe_1045 I heard this guy on "Cover 2" this morning talking about how easily the G were gunna win. What an idiot...
@GameOnBrixy I don't know what you're talking about, seemed pretty easy to me. BTW, unrelated, my resting heart rate is currently 112.
