"We don't even know him, we ain't vanilla, man, we ain't no simple offense," receiver?Reggie Wayne?said. "So for him to come in here and be the starter, I don't see it. I think that's a step back."
Kerry Collins, who led the Giants to Super Bowl XXXV in January 2001, announced his retirement from the NFL today. Collins played 16 seasons in the NFL - five with the New York Giants - and threw for 40,441 yards, 11th on the?league's all-time list. In addition to the Giants, he played for the Panthers, Saints, Raiders, Ravens, and most recently, the Titans."The past several months have brought on much introspection, and I have decided that while my desire to compete on Sundays is still and always will be there, my willingness to commit to the preparation necessary to play another season has waned to a level that I feel is no longer adequate to meet the demands of the position," Collins said in a statement released today.
My greatest Kerry Collins memory took place on January 14, 2001, when the Giants beat the Vikings, 41-0, at Giants Stadium to win the NFC Championship. Collins threw five touchdown passes?- and had 381 total passing yards -?as Big Blue got on the scoreboard early and often, leading 34-0 at the half. Things just seemed so automatic for Collins and the Giants?that day, and what made it even?more special?was?having the great Pat Summerall calling the game on TV.

In one of the lowest points in my 45-year history of watching the team, the Giants' performance in Super Bowl XXXV has got to be as disappointing as they come...

With a win over a drowning Dallas team, the Giants will break the tie for 1st in the NFC East. A win would also place New York in a two-way tie with Atlanta for 1st in the NFC.
Atlanta defeated Cincinnati today to advance to 5-2. The Falcons (and the Giants should they win) are a 1/2 a game behind the Jets and Steelers for 1st in the NFL.

Young had two interceptions and a fumble in the loss last week, and he was benched for the fourth quarter. Immediately after lifting Young, Fisher said he did it to jump-start his team, and that there's no quarterback controversy in Tennessee. We've heard that before, however. Andy Reid said the same thing one day about Kevin Kolb. The next day, Michael Vick was the Eagles' starter.
Young was Collins' backup last year when the Titans started 0-6. The Titans are 1-1 as they head into East Rutherford. Young will have to play well or else Collins will get the chance to?reintroduce himself to Giants' fans.
Injuries - 5 players key players came into camp recovering from recent surgery and at least 10 more have been injured this camp.? The offensive line is fragmented and the 2nd team defensive backs look, well....overwhelmed!
