No ill will or disrespect to his family, but I hope Kelly's career mirrors that of Steve Spurrier or Nick Saban. Would love to see the Eagles become our biznatches for the next 8 years. They had an EXTREMELY long run on us starting in 99. It's time to return the favor.

Notice how it wasn't the OC job he was offered. Gilbride must really have the goods on TC. hahaha

I shall be telling this with a sigh



Somewhere ages and ages hence:



Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—



I took the one less traveled by,



And that has made all the difference.

More like since the 2001-02 season. Giants beat them 3 times in the 2000-01 season and owned the Eagles for years prior to then.

But the point your post fails to make mention of -- which is pretty funny in the sense that it applies to the premise of your post -- is that Kelly wanted the QB coach gig, which Coughlin wouldn't give him. Gilbride at the time was our QB coach lol.

It was just a joke. Which makes the irony all the more amusing, I must say.

I guess I was thinking about the McNabb years. I think he came into the league around 99. Still they put it to us for a majority of the 2000s, or at least it felt that way.

It's Andy Reid that has our number. I'd be more convinced of that if the Chiefs beat us but we sweep the Eagles...

Pretty much. I went through all the numbers of the Andy Reid era earlier in the year

Andy Reid 17 - 14 Giants

Donovan McNabb 11 - 7 Giants
Michael Vick 3 - 2 Giants


QBs, head-to-head:

Kent Graham 2 - 0 Doug Pederson
Donovan McNabb 5- 3 Kerry Collins
Kerry Collins 1 - 0 A.J. Feeley
Donovan McNabb 1 - 0 Kurt Warner
Donovan McNabb 5 - 4 Eli Manning
Michael Vick 3 - 2 Eli Manning
Eli Manning 2 - 0 Mike McMahon (lol)
Jeff Garcia 2 - 0 Eli Manning
Vince young 1 - 0 Eli Manning

Interesting stats Flip. I guess it felt a lot worse than it actually was ;-)

Um...that punt return in 2010 and the playoff loss in 2008 were devastating

Yes they were. But I was thinking that somewhere along the lines they had beat up 8 or 9 times out of 10. Maybe it's just my hatred for them that makes every loss feel like 2.
