    We have NO good luck!

    It figures that the one way we can exploit the Jets defense is with the TE, and Ballard isnt available!! And who knows about Beckum?

    Cant even get Osi back for the biggest game of the season.

    Yeah, remember when Osi got hurt and actually walked to the locker room before halftime? He was WALKING on his own power. And now he hasn't played for about a month? Big Ben looked like his ankle was about half broken last night yet he played (probably shouldn't have) last night. If Osi is looking for 100% good health he may have to take up checkers or something that speed. Grow a pair and suit up.

    In all seriousness, I'd rather be good than lucky.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    No team has ever won a Sb without being good and lucky and sometimes just plain lucky

I still think I'd rather be great than lucky.

    I actually walked past Osi at the supermarket this past weekend and wished him good luck on the rest of the season. Being able to walk vs playing a very physical game are two different things.

    I'd venture to say the giants are VERY LUCKY to be in the playoff hunt!

    Just making the point that he was walking off and it's been at least a month now. Isn't it an ankle injury? He seems to be in a perpetual state of injury of some kind, and that, coupled with his mediocre attitude, is obviously what leads many fans to hope his ship sails this offseason.

    I think if he could play, he would.

    He wants a huge contract next year, as made clear by this offseason.

    What's the going FA rate for an aging DE, who can't stay healthy and make big plays?

    Walking off on your own power has no relation to extent and severity of injury, necessarily. Players who suffer from torn MCLs. for example, frequently walk off the field and into the locker room, looking good, only to go on IR on Monday.

    As for comparing Roethlisburger's ankle injury to that of Osi, while true Ben is a tough dude, the strain and stress put on the ankle by a QB is not remotely close to the same as done by a DE whose primary job is to rush the passer. To question Osi's toughness by saying Ben played last Sunday (hobbling around) is absurd.

    The man is (was) playing for one more big contract. You think he doesn't know if he's not on the field he can't make his case for a new big contract? Do you honestly believe that he would not be on the field if he at all possibly could?
