Ok, who didnt bother watching the game yesterday?

GMAN4LIFE : 11/13/2017 11:52 am
for 20 years, i have caught watched the Giant games from start to finish. Hell, i didnt care how bad they were. I just wanted to see who did well.

This year is a different story. This team is really really bad. Defense just doesnt care and offense is just not clicking.

so instead i finished up on stranger things, played with my girls(played dress up) and ironed my clothes for the week.


who else just gave up and not watching?

I watched the entire game.

Aided with copious amount of beer. Memory started getting fuzzy in the 3rd quarter.
I'm with Houston Giant.  
Red Dog : 11/13/2017 12:20 pm : link
Haven't watched a full game yet this year - any NFL game. And won't.
I flipped between the Giants game and other games.  
Keith : 11/13/2017 12:21 pm : link
I also went out and threw the grill on, played with the dogs. Normally, I would never do that during a Giants game. Like someone mentioned earlier, its not just because they are bad, they aren't giving the necessary effort. Nor will I.
Maybe they should, instead, televise the practices....  
Doomster : 11/13/2017 12:30 pm : link
I have it on good authority, that they have good practices every week...
against themselves ?

Daughter in DC, found a bar showing it and watched the entire game! Like others here, many times laughing out loud. Havenít missed a game in over 30 years.
Watched until the opening kickoff went out of bounds.

NAH. Not wasting my Sunday.
I tuned it for about 3 minutes to see Eli

I'll say this...

Anyone who didn't watch is a fucking pussy.

It's as if some fans needed to have their decision to NOT watch validated by others.

Will the responses you get in this thread influence your decision as to whether you'll watch the Giants next game and if not, why ask?


never understood this response... i posted in here because (as a fan) i watched all the time. But was wondering if anyone else just gave up. Hell everyone could have told me no. But some did give up watching.

Does that answer your question?
We wait from Jan- Sept for a meaningful game  
BLUATHRT : 11/13/2017 12:45 pm : link
and even though these games aren't meaningful for playoffs, they are for the future of our franchise. So, I watch.

Danny Kanell : 11/13/2017 12:46 pm : link
I watched mainly because I don't know how much longer we'll have Eli and I want to be able to watch as much of him as I can. At least he fucking cares.

Agree with this. Any thread that encourages discussion should be bannable.


That wasn't my suggestion and I'm sure you know that. I simply stated that I didn't understand the purpose of these types of threads.

And this thread hasn't really encouraged "discussion" either, unless you consider people posting whether they watched the game or not and if not, what they did instead as an actual discussion.
I followed along on my phone...  
Jan in DC : 11/13/2017 12:52 pm : link
I was annoyed when they were winning, but McAdoo came through for our draft status in the end.

whats the difference to you though? again, you could just not come into the chat or just create another. im just saying that my purpose was to see what everyone else did or did you really give up? im surprised that some still watch. But they gave their reasons so its interesting.

It still seems like you (and others who start similar threads) are looking for other people to validate their decision.

If everyone said that they're still watching (or that they also gave up) would it influence your decision to watch or not watch next week's game?

In any event, I never suggested you shouldn't ask. I just said that I didn't understand the purpose of these threads. I certainly didn't mean anything personal.
I did watch the game yesterday, in a bar at that  
Post Time : 11/13/2017 12:58 pm : link
But I did not watch the previous week, when I was in San Diego for the Breeders Cup. Hopped in my rental and spent the day hiking in the mountains. Afterwards, when I saw the score, was very happy with my decision.

i know but think of it on the other end... does come off as shitting on this thread.

all good. I made that decision to not watch so if everyone said they still do, i would listen but still not watch for my reasons.

but the reality is i knew some wouldnt

Watched RZ until SF made it 23...got into a been there done that mode then a fuggedaboutit mode. Popped in just to see the Adams penalty on the Gallman run. A key screwup in a key moment...aka...what bad teams ...undisciplined teams do.

Route 9 : 11/13/2017 1:16 pm : link
I watched a chunk of it. I was getting pretty bored easily and that's the one thing that kind of "sucks" about this year and has been a constant abomination about not only the Giants but also said abomination is the league with the BORING, sloppy football. Itís painful to watch, even the good teams. That Patriots-Broncos game last night was trash. Last year, I did something I might not have done in 15 years prior; I decided to do something else other than watch playoff games. I watched the Giants game but if I remember correctly, it was the Seahawks and Falcons game. I had zero interest in watching those two teams play one another. I also skipped out on the Steelers and Patriots AFC Championship game because it was obvious who would win that one.

The NFL Playoffs used to be a traditional event in my house and was something really fun to look forward to. Since that CBA my interest in the league as a whole has gone downhill ever since, each and every year.

People are mentioning playerís names and I have no idea who these guys are. This Giants-49ers game was just a complete waste of time though. I think once that clown kicker for the Giants missed that FG, I knew where this was going. I went out and got something to drink, I turn it on and the Giants were down 31-13?!

Haha, how pathetic is that? Youíre getting beat by more than two possessions by a terrible 0-9 team, LOL. The main issues about these Giant games (and even others, primetimes, playoffs) are theyíre BORING. I canít believe it was 2013, where under Coughlin and despite the bad it still felt like something special to look forward to. Hey, whatever itís football. Nope not anymore. This team clearly doesn't give a single fuck.

And another LOL because that is all gone because the Giants and football are just almost unbearable. I guess the only thing to really look forward to is (which is pathetic) hoping the Eagles go one and done in the playoffs. That is really it.

The OP posted this because by being here it's assumed we're all diehard Giants fans, live and breathe Big Blue.

Because the season has gone so sideways and ruined all of our expectations, he's wondering if other people are as disappointed as he is and doing the unusual for a diehard fan and not watching their team.

not looking for validation of his opinion to see if it's ok, looking to see if others are equally as disappointed in the results to the point they've changed their normal viewing habits.

The NFL is just sooo boring now. The Giants sucking adds onto it but the league has had a quality issue for years and felt that way even when we were 11-5.

Yesterday was a big day for me as I moved into my new office space. But it actually reminded me of the last time I didnít watch the Giants at the stadium or on TV was when I was moving into my dorm room freshmen year of college. Even then I had the game on the radio for almost every play. Yesterday I listened to the first few series but then my plan was to watch on TiVo but I got busy at the office and then turned on the radio on the way home to hear Papa and Banks call the last 9er today. Pathetic. First time in more than two decades I didnít see a single snap on TV or in person.

I have not missed a game in a long long time in fact I think
I missed one game when the NFL network first started that is since 1963 .
I am not sure if I want to watch anymore but I know I will
this will be the worst season in Giants history there is no getting around it the trenches are holding up with duct tape
the weapons are minimal . We have no LB's a defensive backfield that is playing not to get injured no pass rush
little pass protection for an immobile QB who never quits or gripes while the last 7 years of what could have been a couple more rings fades into the sunset .
I watched  
joeinpa : 11/13/2017 4:02 pm : link

anymore and it was a late game. Wife just came home from the hospital so going to the bar was out of the question. Boys getting steamrolled by Atlanta ended up being the better watch.

Have game pass so will watch it. Why I don't know.

Living overseas, watching the Giants, shitty as they are, gives me a little bit of home.
