Still waiting to see NFL offenses as halftime approaches

Football is back.

Offense is still on the way.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Giants couldn’t even push in in from the shadow of the end zone, settling for a Lawrence Tynes field goal from a whopping 22 yards away for the first points of the 2012 season.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw an ugly pick (that was close to a pick-six), and Giants rookie running back David Wilson appeared to be tearing up on the sidelines after an early fumble.

We waited months for this, and this is how they thank us.

    Another season, same old romo.

    That sound you hear, by the way, is the non-existant window, closing.

    Hey NBC, thanks for the slow motion video of Rob Ryan saying f–k yeah twice after the cowboys forced the giants field goal.

    This is pathetic. Two middle of the pack defenses and these supposed “elite” QBs can do a thing…

    I thought you and Florio were watching the DNC, no?

    Not a fan of either team. With that said, these replacement refs are a major reason for the lack of scoring. It is clear that both teams are holding the receivers and making illegal contact. Receivers can’t get open, you can’t score.

    If Hollywood decides to remake “The Invisible Man,” Miles Austin would be a great leading man.

    Maybe both of these defenses are awesome…last year the first game was an offensive gem, with no defense. It could be possible that defenses have caught up to the new rules. These are 2 NFC East powers, not the pass happy pack and saints.

    David Wilson tearing up after a fumble was great. Papa Coughlin is gonna spank him for turning over the football.

    Redskins are already winning the division. RGIII = season MVP, Eli Manning = Matt Barkley’s somewhat reliable backup QB next year.

    Very anticlimactic and disappointing performance by both teams. The pregame music fest was pathetic as well from Mariah Carey and No Doubt. At least Queen Latifah’s hip hop version of the national anthem was well done.

    What a crap-tacular game.

    This article is kinda sad as it speaks to how a large portion of the fan base require the instant gratification of constand scoring and find it hard to appreciate the athleticism and strategy in a defensive struggle. But that is what sells tickets and how the rules have evolved. Sad.

    I’m sorry. That anthem was terrible. There should not be dancing to the national anthem.
