Giants play the (yawn) Patriots in preseas-insignificance

Tonight’s game will be a yawner for the larger issues, but will be important for a few roster spots still under contention. I’ll be travelling, will miss this one. With the starters expected to be in for ~10 plays, it is traditionally the least relevant game of preseason. If the NFL goes to a 17 game format, this game is the one which gets the ax, the one where most NFL teams are mailing it in. Cast under the shadow of Osi’s nightmare last weekend, I am reminded of this evening’s starters playing those ~10 plays…

Archie Graham: Hey ump, how ’bout a warning?
Clean-shaven Umpire: Sure, kid. Watch out you don’t get killed.
