10 Reasons to Hate the New York Giants

I guess this matchup is becoming something of a rival. The Carolina Panthers will have played the Giants now for the fourth time in three years. There was the close loss in overtime at New York (New Jersey, technically) in December of 2008, there was yet another loss in preseason of 2009 at New York, the 41-9 shellacking delivered to the Giants to close their old stadium in Week 16 of the 2009 regular season, and now…Sunday September 12, 2010; the Panthers once again travel to the Meadowlands of East Rutherford, NJ to check out the Giants’ new digs and hopefully leave Giants fans speechless, with their mouths agape, as the Carolina Panthers run all over the G-Men in their first game of the regular season at their new home.

Considering this seems to be a recurring matchup, now in it’s third consecutive season, I’m wondering what’s with all the love given by the NFL’s schedule-making computer that given the Giants four consecutive home games against the Carolina Panthers in three years? Is it because if the game were in Charlotte that Giants fans wouldn’t make the trip? I highly doubt it. Whatever the reason, it only goes to show how much stronger the men from Carolina are, if they can pull out another win in a meaningful game to the Giants and their faithful.

Now things could get sarcastic and perhaps ugly, depending on your sense of humor and whether or not you can take a joke…The top-10 Reasons to Hate the New York Giants. This list will remain team-oriented, but it won’t go beyond the boundaries of the parking lot.

10. The parking situation sucks

Okay, so parking at a Panthers game in Charlotte is not the best in the world, but the pricing is affordable, and no matter where you park, it’s within a 15-to-20 minute (tops) walking distance from the farthest outreaches of parking. You would think that with a new stadium, and the old crap-hole torn down, that parking would re-open again. Nope, now unless you have a parking pass, which means you probably have to have lower bowl season tickets or a luxury suite, you’re either parking in a remote location and busing in, or you have to take the train in, which leaves you with virtually no opportunity to tailgate, and the last train leaves an hour after the game ends.

9. Eli Manning

He will never be his brother. He will always live in the shadow of the greatness of Peyton Manning. Yeah sure, both Mannings have a Super Bowl ring, and Eli received his a lot sooner than Peyton did, but when was the last time the Giants went 14-0 before losing a game, with Eli as their quarterback? And who currently owns almost every quarterback record in the history of the NFL?

8. Giants fans are front-runners

I can’t point the finger too much, because…well, yeah I can. You guys are pathetic! You’re front-runners! Most Giants fans are also Yankees fans — a team with players that are bought and paid for. If they’re having a strong season, “they’re unstoppable! They’re the greatest team on earth! They’re going to AND winning the Super Bowl this year!” Two weeks later, the second your team is down you should hear yourselves: “Tom Coughlin should be fired, Eli Manning sucks, you’ll never watch another Giants game again, the team is garbage…” Take this guy for example…another Giants fan loser.

7.The name New York FOOTBALL Giants is played out.

How is it that teams get these nicknames as if they’re “the shit?” Dallas is “America’s Team?!” Bullshit! And the New York Giants have to have “Football” incorporated between York and Giants, like it’s some kind of bad-ass nickname. It was probably added after the Cowboys were “America’s Team,” because Giants fans whined and cried out of jealousy, that “our team should be America’s Team!” You suck! Sit on it! Football Giants was created by Chris Berman, another self-important cretin who is probably a half-assed Giants fan, to boot.

6. You play in New Jersey.

This is a controversy that’s been ongoing for quite some time, now. How is it that New York continues to receive the credit of “ownership” for both the Jets and the Giants? Early in each teams’ history, I can see the relevance, as the Giants played at Yankees Stadium, and the Jets at Shea. But now, both teams have played in New Jersey for 34 years, and both teams’ front offices are headquartered in New Jersey. Hey New York, you already have your own team, and they’re in Buffalo! And they suck, too!

5. It’s always about revenge.

Everytime the Giants are about to play a team they lost to, because they absolutely SUCKED, I feel like I’ve stepped back into the wild, wild west, because with these assholes, it’s always about revenge. And the fans eat this shit up, too. But if an opposing team’s fan, beat writer, or player so much as sniffles something about the Giants, fan and players’ reactions fly off the Richter Scale. You know what’s going to be funny? When the revenge factor blows up in your stupid faces and you lose in a game where it’s all about revenge, and then listening to the Giants fans whining about how their team sucks and Coughlin should be fired.

4. The Giants…

It’s a ridiculous nickname. At least the Jets could claim that they’re based off the gang from West Side Story, and the way Rex Ryan runs that team (and his mouth), you’d think the Jets are some kind of street gang, whom an opposing team could — and should, legitimately fear. But the Giants are a team name based off of a fairytale character. Probably from Jack and the Beanstalk. I’ve never seen a Giant in my lifetime, and while there are some people who are cursed with Giant-ism, is it really appropriate to make fun of these people, by naming your team after them?

3. Big Blue

Another ridiculous nickname, considering all the other teams out there whose main color scheme is…BLUE! The Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, and the Seattle Seahawks. 11 teams; half of which are probably better than your team, as it is! You ahve New York “FOOTBALL” Giants, be happy with that.

2. It’s okay for you to bust my chops…

But I’m not allowed to bust yours. The second I even come back at you, you get all uptight and are ready to throw down. “What you say? Come on, come say it to my face.” Hey, yo mama’s so fat…meh, nevermind. I hate making a Giants fan cry. Go screw!

1. You’re team is overrated, AGAIN!

You have a new defensive scheme, which is a “read and react.” Sounds simple enough to the layman…I speak from experience, as a year ago, the Panthers hired new defensive coordinator Ron Meeks, and the premise of his defense are largely based on the same “read and react” principles. It took Carolina’s defense about half the season to really start putting up numbers, which is why the D looked like crap in Week One through about the seventh or eight week…give or take one or two games. You’ll see similar results from your defense, as well… Your offensive line is OLD!!!!! Chris Snee is an AARP member, and Shaun O’Hara receives Medicare benefits. Finally, the rest of your team is bitter within itself. Brandon Jacobs is shooting off his mouth because he’s mad, Osi Umeniyora is mad, Justin Tuck is also mad…There are a lot of upset personalities in New York right now, while Eli Manning stares blankly at a wall.

One more time…

    Let us know how you really feel.

    Seriously though why do keep playing these guys at their home? They do know we have an airport right?

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      That’s a good question, John. I am curious if there is an answer to that, other than “laws of probability,” because those seem like improbable odds, IMO.

    Ha cry baby yes Giants are cry babies & no don’t make up crappy excess We don’t want to hear them in fact I hope he got some tissue left for sunday’s game

  • http://sportstalkbash.blogspot.com/ KD

    I somehow agree with a lot of those points.

    He doesn’t understand that the New York Football Giants have that name because when they were incorporated in 1925, there was allready a New York Giants team playing baseball in New York, so that’s a bit uninformed.

    I agree with the guy about the parking situation.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Okay, credible point, KD…But there isn’t a team in New York by the name of the Giants, other than the football team, so it’s still a moot point.

      Good luck tomorrow. :)

  • John

    Speaking of parking way back in the 80′s I went to a couple of games in Buffalo. We had to walk forever from where we parked and it was very cold. Thank god for boot flasks and brandy.

  • http://CatCrave.com gkillette

    Giant WR’s are not good marksmen either. Good thing they have their LB’s to drive them and cover it up. Shame Plax didnt get a work release. :-D

  • Austin Penny

    i like the passion Eric…looking forward to whoopin that ass tomorrow…we closed down the old Meadowlands and we’re about to open the new one up in the same fashion

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I got my jersey for tomorrow all laid out…Defense, baby! Thanks for the read and comment, Austin.

  • Brian Zumbach

    The official name of the football team has been “The New York Football Giants” for over 70 years.
    That is approximately 5 times (and 7 championships) longer than the Panthers have existed.
    It’s called Tradition.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I gave you “Football Giants” later in the piece. Don’t hate.

  • g-men

    You must feel stupid after taking the time to write all that and watch your team get spanked.

    Here’s to the most adequate team in the league.. way to not improve your team even remotely in the off season. Your owner is saving money planning for the lockout. Way to be competitive.

    Your whack Carolina.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Haha, and you waited ’til AFTER the game to post your whack comment. Hit me up after G-Force loses some games…it’s just a matter of when…You know I’m right, too.

  • G Mac

    Eric Dude… Take it easy man… First of all while don’t you try to find some more recent pics…Tiki Barber… Really??????? Wait how about this why don’t you put up a pic of the Panthers holding up a Superbowl Trophy…. Ooooo that’s right you don’t have one… You want to borrow one of my 3???????????

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      G – Mac, Dude.

      Haha, I always love how the final argument is “How many Super Bowl rings/trophies do you have?” as if that’s hitting it out of the park. Please, Dude. I’m taking it easy, man. Always do. You seem to be the one who’s fired up over what I’ve written. I’m happy that my writing has made such an emotional impact over you! Come back anytime!

      • G Mac

        AAAhhhhahahaha…. Dude please…I believe this entry is called 10 reasons to Hate the Giants. Sounds like you have the fire. Sorry for your lose… You guys looked good… Seriously….Apparently in your word Superbowl wins mean nothing, since that is the only come back we have…I guess according to you if you win a Superbowl it means nothing… Why do you even watch???? What a joke….

        • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

          Super Bowl wins mean nothing to future seasons…What has the Giants’ most recent Super Bowl win done for the team’s success last season and the season before? Not a thing. So yes, Super Bowl wins ARE important, but they don’t define a current team nor how well or poorly they will play.

          And come back later this week too, as I’ll have “10 Reasons to Hate the Bucs” up, as well. Strictly for entertainment purposes, only.

  • G Mac

    Spoken like a true Non-Superbowl winning team… Good luck to you…One last comment. You said Giant fans are front- runners. This team has one of the most loyal fan bases in the entire country. I watched every game of every season good or bad… And watched many horrible seansons before we made it back to being Superbowl Champions. I’m sure B of A stadium will be sold out and fans will keep watching if they keep playing like this. C’mon man even when the Panthers are good the stadium is empty by the 3rd quarter.. Front-runners… Make your comments to the Bucs at least they make sense there..

  • Steve

    you pick the parking situation to be a giants hater? really? and the fact that peyton is the better quarterback? it’s about the team asshole. you’re probably a tom brady loving faggot that can’t get laid

  • c.b

  • joey

  • joey
