Leave Jay (Feely) Alone

New Yorkers and other out-of-state Giants fans can quit roasting Jay Feely and thank the officials from Sunday's game that the Giants even got to overtime. It seems the league called the Seahawks on Monday and apologized for two bad calls. After further review by the league, touchdowns by Jeremy Shockey and Amani Toomer should have been overturned.

Watching the game on DVR last night till 2am, I came to the same conclusion.

Plus, the three field goals Feely missed were longer than 40 yards and he made two other field goals earlier in the game. Just think, if the officials would have called the game right, Feely wouldn't have been put in the position to be the goat. The G-Men simply would have lost the game 21-6 and East Coast analysts wouldn't be crying about how the better team lost on Sunday because of a stupid kicker.

Give me a break. The Seahawks won the game because the football gods weren't going to let the officials give the game to New York. Feel bad for Feely that he happened to be on the receiving end of their (the football gods) wrath.

I would also like to personally thank Jay Feely for missing a 52 yard field goal that allowed me to come out victorious in Madden. GO CUNDIFF!!

It was pleasantly familiar to watch Marc play in our Madden 06 Apartment 123 franchise today. With one minute left, Marc, playing as the Cowboys in Bledsoe's first game back after injury, made his 3rd field goal of the game, putting him up 9-7 over the Giants. But the Giants fought back, with Plaxico Burress single-handedly terrorizing Marc's pathetic secondary on their way to his 35 yard line. With 14 seconds left, Jay Feely came on the field to attempt a 52-yarder. In similar fashion to his Seattle-pleasing performance on Sunday, he came up short. Marc won with 3 field goals, and never penetrated the red zone.

First off, great post. Being from the greater eastside of Seattle I appreciate reading anything about home, especially when its good news about Seattle sports. Watching that game was a roller coaster ride of emotions for me, but I am glad that the right team came out on top. This is the first time I've read any of your blogs, but I think I'll now be a regular reader.

The G-men should have won, they out played the seagulls and if this was soccer, jay feely would have been found dead in a ditch monday morning...
