In a month full of relatively boring games, last night's preseason finale reached a new standard for snoozers. There were definitely some nice plays, and I'm sure both teams' coaching staffs got some final insights as to who will be around this time next week and who won't, but from a fan standpoint, that one stunk even for preseason standards. I found myself jumping back and forth between the game and a Spanish-overdubbed version of the Jean-Claude Van Damme classic Bloodsport, and so I'm sure I missed some stuff. But the way I see it, if pretty much all the starters got to take it easy last night, I should be able to do the same.
What barely passes for adequate notes after the jump.
- I don't dislike Eli Manning; I really don't. But he's definitely one of those people you just want to slap every time you look at him. If you asked 100 people who had no idea who Eli was what they thought he did for a living based on a picture of him, I feel comfortable at least 80% would come back with "Jersey Turnpike toll booth worker."
