NFL Notes: Eagles Giants game wrap up

Eagles v Giants:
This has been a crazy game. I can't do game re-cap right now (you can go to ESPN for all that) but I will give comments on what I see.  And what I saw was an amazing game.  Here's a few of my notes:
-The Eagles had some bright moments (Mike Vick's TD run early, Shady McCoy's awesome night) and some not so bright ones. (Jason Avant, I'm kinda lookin' at you. Don't you go anywhere either Samuel, your performance was lest than perfect too.) Very up and down game
- The Giants shot themselves in the foot.  Fumbles, penalties, lack of field awareness. They showed their youth at some very poor times though out the game
- The officials.
   Alright look, I try not to be a "the ref's screwed us and the League hates us" kinda guy but... The ref's screwed the Eagles on a few of them. I don't think they "had it out" for  the Eagles but there were some awful calls. The only one I want to go into is the penalty on Samuel and the no call on the Ellis Hobs hit.
(Note: x-rays are negative and he was able to walk out the X-ray room) The NFL needs to re-look the way they call these helmet to helmet hits. How in name of all things good can the ellis hobbs hit not be a penalty (and fine) but Asante Samuel gets flagged 15 yards for a clean shoulder tackle.

Play that sums up the game? 4th and 1. Vick takes a bad start in a bobbled snap, holds on, and gets it to McCoy for the long Touchdown.  It sums up the game because it wasn't pretty but it got the job done.

Tip Drill (quick notes):
Vince Young is a baby. If your reading this your are most likely to have herd about what happened this Sunday. This guy is a USDA certified crybaby. His attitude the past few years has been like that of a trust fund baby on a bad MTV TV show (so any MTV show basically).  It's sad to see a guy go from this to what we have now. I wanted to be a VY fan, he's making it awful hard for anyone to be not named Young.

What the hell happened to Peyton Manning? I just caught the very end of the Colts late game drive. Watching Manning throw a pick late in the 4th while his team is in easy field goal range was just looked off to me. I hope he can get it back on track because he's one of the best the League has not just as a Quarterback but also as a spokesperson.

Sucks to be Brett Farve right about now too.

With that, good night interwebs.
