Boomer Esiason: Pack will win easy on the road

nygnyy274 : 11/15/2013 11:03 am
I really despise this guy now.. His hate for the Giants has been in full force this season.
Charming tale  
YAJ2112 : 11/15/2013 11:04 am : link
He could be right...  
M.S. : 11/15/2013 11:05 am : link
...but that doesn't let him off the hook for being a pompous, loud mouth, A-hole.
jtgiants : 11/15/2013 11:06 am : link
exactly did he say?
arcarsenal : 11/15/2013 11:06 am : link
Pretty sure that's not what he said.

He picked GB but he didn't say they'd "win easy".
He is in love with their 3rd string ex practice squad QB  
BlueHurricane : 11/15/2013 11:08 am : link
Feels he will throw for 275 and 2 td's/no picks. All of a sudden a practice squad guy is going to have great success against our D.

He sloughed off the performance of our D as feasting on shit QB's. (hard to argue)
He said  
nygnyy274 : 11/15/2013 11:08 am : link
We were going to lose last week to.. Last year after the eagles beat us in week 4 he said the Eagles proved why the will win the NFC east last night and what happen after that.. Eagles finished 4-12
Why do people still listen to them?  
nygiants16 : 11/15/2013 11:09 am : link
they are awful blowhards who just say things for effect...they have no tv anymore because MSG basically booted them...hopefully soon WFAN boots them as well..

i would rather listen to Elvis Duran than these 2 morons in the morning..
Not what he said at least this morning  
Tuckrule : 11/15/2013 11:10 am : link
I turned it off at 630 once I got to work but he basically said don't sleep on green bays qb. He can make some throws and he said he believes pack will win. Never did he say blowout or easy
I love it  
redbeard : 11/15/2013 11:10 am : link
Our D is feasting on shit QBs...therefore a third string practice squander will shred us

Top notch stuff right there
Danny Kanell : 11/15/2013 11:11 am : link
Well he won't be "a winna"  
Lafferty, Daniel : 11/15/2013 11:11 am : link
in T-Bone's playas only thread IMO...
nygnyy274 : 11/15/2013 11:12 am : link
He said it on his cbs update
on his CBS sports update on WFAN  
SoZKillA : 11/15/2013 11:13 am : link
said the Giants struggle with back up Qbs so this could be a easy pick for him
Based on the Packer injuries  
chrispisano66 : 11/15/2013 11:16 am : link
that is clearly more wishful thinking than it is any sort of knowledgable prediction.

Francesa mentioned this early in the week after a Jet fan called in. He basically said if the Giants keep this up another few weeks and for us hopefully longer, you will start to see the Giants haters in full panic mode.

I don't care what anyone says about how bad they've played at times this year, if they are breathing at 6-6 the rest of this division could be in some trouble.

One game at a time.
He's trolling you  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 11/15/2013 11:18 am : link
He said the other day about Eli "How long can you live off of two Super Bowls?"

Dude, you're still living off an MVP award and a last-second Super Bowl LOSS.
How dare anyone pick against the Giants  
steve in ky : 11/15/2013 11:20 am : link

If he did say it.. who cares? I don't know why it matters or why his opinion is important.

love affair with the Giants continues.

Thanks LT;-)
I recently re-watched the Rams-Titans Super Bowl from the 1999 seaon  
NYG82 : 11/15/2013 11:46 am : link
And on the call was Al Michaels and Boomer Esiason. Nowadays Norman hosts a morning radio show with a yammering baboon, does monday night games on the radio and is part of a parade of fake-laughing morons on one of the many forgettable morning pregame shows.

Somehow I doubt Aikman, Simms or Collinsworth would switch places with him. His broadcasting career arc reflects his actual talents.

I listend to them for about 2 minutes today before having

How long can you live off two Superbowls?

How long can you live off 2 SB's??  
LG in NYC : 11/15/2013 11:59 am : link
It was less than 2 years ago... It's not like we are talking about a decade ago.
Phil from WNY : 11/15/2013 12:00 pm : link
When you don't know what you're doing, generate outrage in order to drive listeners. You listen to him because you keep hoping he'll saying something nice about the Giants but if he does, you won't listen to him. Outrage drives listeners.
Outside of two amazing SB runs

think about that for a minute, it's like saying "Other than that Mrs. Lincoln how did you enjoy the Play?
How long can you live off no Super Bowls?  
Phil from WNY : 11/15/2013 12:03 pm : link
Apparently not very long, which is why he's still working.
Why do you people continue to eat up this slop.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 11/15/2013 12:12 pm : link
Stop being outraged by the things that empty-headed idiot says. He's playing you like a violin.
He may well be right about the Pack beating the G-men  
81_Great_Dane : 11/15/2013 12:12 pm : link
and the way for Eli to shut him up is to play better.

You play shitty, people get to talk shit about you.
My lovely lady bought me Sirius a few weeks ago  
drkenneth : 11/15/2013 12:22 pm : link
for my BDay. I'm happy to say I've been Boomer, Carton, & Francessa-free for almost 2 weeks.

Fat Mike is still discussing Mets bullpen ERAs in November.
Threads like this are more mind boggling  
aimrocky : 11/15/2013 12:23 pm : link
than Boomer's opinion. I don't know how many times it needs to be said. These guys are trying to draw a reaction. They're REALLY good at doing their job.
Why you guys keep listening to that shit show

The guys that get outraged at this moron and his opinion, or the guys that always assume that these clowns are smart enough to play to the ratings.
Phil from WNY : 11/15/2013 12:35 pm : link
The people who employ them are smart enough. Do you really believe that any of us assume Boomer knows radio?
i met Boomer yesterday at his charity event in i asked him  
GMAN4LIFE : 11/15/2013 12:41 pm : link
"why do you hate the Giants?"... he said " hahaha... thank for your donation?".. i said "i expensed it"...he laughed louder...

good guy...even though he hates the giants
I think it's so where in between  
BigBlueShock : 11/15/2013 12:42 pm : link
Do these guys get scripted on the things they say? Sometimes. But the guys that think that the only reason Boomer Esiason is picking against the Giants every week is to boost ratings are as silly as the guys that get their panties in a bunch because he does it. It's no secret Boomer is no fan of the Giants. He'll gladly tell you as much.
Loluchka80 : 11/15/2013 12:51 pm : link
what does boomer know about football?? he was a garbage QB.

the giants will win by 17 EASY!!!

you heard it hear first.
Phil from WNY : 11/15/2013 12:53 pm : link
Clearly you don't follow ESPN. They use the same model to drive web hits and ratings. You really don't think they measure this stuff at the large media companies? You're the one who is showing his naivete now. They're not scripted but they're given hot buttons.
I love

That you guys live and die (and lose your shit) over something someone says, that's repeated here a thousand times a day.

Keep fighting the good fight!
said the Giants struggle with back up Qbs

you can live off

2 Super bowls a long time I would think. The Jets are living off 1 for how long?
I think Boomer  
bceagle05 : 11/15/2013 1:34 pm : link
see himself as a superior player to Eli and it probably kills him that Eli has two rings while he has zero. That's probably where the resentment comes from. Same thing with a guy like Warner. Pure envy. I think it's great. I hope Eli gets a third, because these guys will still find a way to diminish it.
Boomer was MVP?

Did a lot of guys get hurt that year?
I wish  
NJGiantFan84 : 11/15/2013 2:10 pm : link
he would come out and admit he hates the Giants. he takes so much joy in bashing them but pretends that he likes them. It's pathetic. You're allowed o hate teams, just say it.
I think we'll win but I don't think we'll steamroll them  
ConMan22 : 11/15/2013 2:11 pm : link
Giants have a history of struggling against no name third stringers that they have no film on. Maybe I'm just remembering selectively but that's what it feels like to me at least.

I'm guessing Giants win something like 24-16 in is a closer game than the score indicates...
I don't get this type of analysis, it makes no sense  
PatersonPlank : 11/15/2013 2:12 pm : link
If I'm a Packers fan I am very worried. THe past three weeks they have basically given up pts per game, and that includes teams like the Vikings and a Cutler-less Bears To me this is where they will get really hurt. On offense with these super backups they scored 13 pts on the Eagles. The Eagles D is not a good defense.

add to that its at the Meadowlands, the Giants have won 3 in a row, the Pack has lost 2 in a row, and I honestly don't see any reason to pick the Pack.
Oops, should have said given up 30 pts per game over the past 3 weeks  
PatersonPlank : 11/15/2013 2:15 pm : link
You could pick the Packers  
Ten Ton Hammer : 11/15/2013 2:24 pm : link
because the Giants insist on giving the ball away as much as possible.
BigBlueShock : 11/15/2013 2:36 pm : link
Way to cherry pick my point to fit your argument. I already acknowledged the fact that some of the angles these guys take is pushed upon them, so to speak. I just don't think it's 100% of the time, as you seem to think. Call me naive. Call me whatever the fuck you wanna call me. The point is, every single time that a television personality says something negative about somebody or some team, guys like you scream that it's all about the ratings. Sometimes it is, but sometimes it's just as simple as that opinion being their true feeling on the matter. Of course, I'm just a naive man, not half as intelligent as Phil from WNY. Or, perhaps it's the other way around?
the giants have struggled  
japanhead : 11/15/2013 2:44 pm : link
against backup quarterbacks for a period of time, from what i recall, it was in the late 1990s through the first year or two of coughlin's tenure. i don't think the sample size is large enough to make a definitive claim either way, but it certainly hasn't been the case really much in the past eight years.

lazy argument by boomer, no surprise.
Phil from WNY : 11/15/2013 2:45 pm : link
It appears that I hit a nerve. That's good because I meant to. The next time you want to be judgmental of others and take a superior tone, wear your big boy pants. I simply treated you the way you treated the others and you couldn't handle it.
They are LOVING Eli's struggles  
Johnny5 : 11/15/2013 3:55 pm : link
Every day it's an hour of how bad Eli is this year. I want to punch the both of them every morning. And yes I still listen, because it's the only God d*mned station my radio can get anymore.
Johnny nailed it.  
NJGiantFan84 : 11/15/2013 4:40 pm : link
I think some of it is treating The giants the way francesa treats The Jets, but the Giants win Sunday and rather than mention the defense, it's all Eli. Some of it's ratings, some of it's getting fans riled up and I believe some of it is getting back at Mike for his jets shtick.
PaulN : 11/15/2013 5:12 pm : link
About the Francessa thing, but remember, he pkayed for the Jets, and now the Jets are flying high, for the Jets, and the way that fanbase is so arrogant, as soon as they win a few games, they are great and they start their little brother complex they have toward the Giants and all their fans, best thing to do is ignore it right now. We need to win these next two games, and not only win them, but show we are really improving on offense especially, defense and special teams, we are still a long way from being a good team, now the Giants have the opportunity to move the team in that direction, remember, even with 2 wins, we are still 5-6! Nothing to crow about unless you want to act like a fucking jets fan, then you might as well go cheer for them, we have no room to act with any arrogance, let the jet fans do that, you see what they get every year, total embarrassment, which causes them to yell all the louder the next season, if given the opportunity.
Boomer hates Melo beyond all else.  
Shockeyisthebest80 : 11/15/2013 5:22 pm : link
I recall him killing Melo last year and asking why he wasn't playing as well as Rick Nash. At the time, the Knicks were in first place and the Rangers were in 3rd or 4th.
To be fair,  
Shockeyisthebest80 : 11/15/2013 5:27 pm : link
when Boomer says dumb anti-Melo shit, Carton will usually call him out on it. When Carton is saying dumb shit, then you just have 2 guys saying dumb shit.
Giants and Eli have made alot  
JoefromPa : 11/15/2013 6:12 pm : link
of medial look bad during the past 8 years. This is their opportunity to justify what they say about the Giants. Doesn't matter how many good seasons Giants have in a row, during a bad season this is what will happen.

Wouldn't it be great if the Giants keep improving and make it to the play offs, and make these guys look like the foolish bias reporters they are
If Rodgers were playing I would agree  
Beer Man : 11/16/2013 8:58 am : link
But on the other hand their Dis pretty good, and our O-line is still a giant work-in-progress. I have little confidence in the interior three.
