its annoying how long you have to wait for trades to be reviewed...either accept, counter or worst case just reject...i would think most ppl check this league every other day??

My props were garbage. But I've never felt so good to lose money in my life.

The best prop, imo, was Eli Manning Completions +.5 over New England first downs. I can't believe I didn't unload on that.

oh no....doesn't sound good, sorry to hear.

I hit two of those props that I thought was an "odds advantage" for 200 each and parlayed them with the G-men. Then hit the square on the first and halftime for 375 total.

how about the under for Gronk, that was basially a lock too.

or the under for Beckum, was a great bet and then he got hurt. Sucks for him though.

I didn't know about Gronk. We know how things can be underplayed. Especially with the Patriots. So I stayed away all Gronk props.

As for Giants TE's...I had Ballard over 25.5 yards and over 2 receptions. I pushed on the receptions but watching him try to cut on the sidelines was scary and sad.

oh man, that looked bad. To me that looked like the Jamal Anderson injury and that basically ended his career.

So lets talk similarities between this game and the 2008 one.

Manningham's big catch on the final drive...a la David Tyree (in a way).

Tuck's straight on sack of Brady on his final drive...a la Alford.

Big white TE is out of the game...a la Jeremy Shockey (only difference is no TE made a big catch after the fact like Boss did in that game).

Brady showed how great of an arm he really has on the final drive. He can really LAUNCH that friggin thing.

Any problems with Eli winning the MVP? Very efficient.

I agree. But if it was just sent today...I'm sure nobody is checking the league. Especially with only 2 games today.

hahaha I didn't even realize all of those. I did think the same with Manninghams catch, that was NASTY. When he caught that, I knew they were going to win.

oh hands down ELI is the MVP.

Ever since they started this run against the Jets where it looked so similar to 2008 I tried to come up with similarities.

2008 -- Earth, Wind and Fire (Jacobs, Bradshaw and Ward)

2012 -- Three Headed Monster (Cruz, Nicks and Manningham)

I was watching the game with my dad and he had the best one liner ever.

I said..."Gambling is the worst addiction."



My dad..."I'll drink to that."
