Missives From Gotham

September 28th, 2009

Just so Bucs fans get an idea of what people from the other side of the street (or country) think, Joe has collected a few samplings from articles appearing in some of New York’s papers.

George Willis, New York Post:

It was hard to distinguish just what was more evident at Raymond James Stadium yesterday. Are the Giants that good? Or are the Bucs that bad?

Ultimately, both statements hold a measure of truth as evidenced by the Giants’ 24-0 dismantling of the Bucs in a game that was more one-sided than the score indicates.

Giants center Sean O’Hara:

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a defense control an offense the way [the Giants] did,” O’Hara said.

Hank Gola, New York Daily News:

As it turned out, the Giants could not have hand-picked a better opponent to help them get back on track. Jersey guy Raheem Morris has a massive rebuilding job in front of him. He wants to model his team after the Giants. Presumably, he didn’t mean Allie Sherman’s 1966 squad.

Ralph Vacchiano, New York Daily News:

In one of their most impressive and dominant performances in years, the undermanned Giants overwhelmed the Buccaneers, 24-0, recording their first road shutout in 26 years. In fact, they didn’t just shut out the Bucs, they shut them down completely, holding them to 86 total yards and five first downs. The Bucs had just 35 yards and one first down before their final, garbage-time drive.
