SI Jinx?

SI Jinx?

Yesterday, We posted about Jeff Garcia appearing on the cover of SI.  Personally, I don't believe in the SI cover Jinx.  Philly.com's comment section analyzes the jinx and the big game.

To all the chest-pounding Giant's fans : Get real. You guys beat a
lousy 5-10 team last week, first win in how many weeks? And now you
think you're gonna roll thru Philly? If the cream is to rise to the
top, it won't be the Giants or the Eagles. Take 95 North until you
smell crap. There. You're home. Go Birds!

I liked his skills in giving directions.

Another poster named Happy Guy predicts the Eagles will put on a scoring display never before seen.

Oh
silly Giants fans, hard not to feel sorry for you. All that hope you
put in your team and they crap all over you, believe me, we can relate.
However, just when we are ready to call you brothers in arms, we are
reminded why we detest you when you break out your pompous, dare I say
elitist and rather nonsensical attitudes.

The fact is, you have a
quarterback that has an extra chromosome (come on, look at him), and is
missing the on-the-field decision making ability (not to mention raw
talent) of his brother, but as they share the same name you mighty blue
midget lovers seem to think that it's actually Peyton dressing up like
a smurf every Sunday. Tiki is a damn good running back (won't argue
that), Brandon jacobs is average at best. Either way, they are going to
be seeing a lot of behind-the-scrimmage-line real estate this week. If
Plexiglass Burress played an iota as well as he talks, pouts and/or
whines, he would be the best receiver to ever step on a field. Instead,
he's a tall bag of bones with decent hands and no heart. Shockey is
just a waste of oxygen.

Final score: Eagles 972, Giants -12

That's 138 Jeff Garcia TD passes and 2 David Akers field goals.

Best of NHL: Maple Leafs hand Kings 1st regulation loss of season

TORONTO -- Frederik Andersen made 36 saves, and the Toronto Maple Leafs handed the Los Angeles Kings their first regulation loss of the season with a 3-2 victory on Monday night.

Matt Martin, Tyler Bozak and Patrick Marleau scored for the Maple Leafs (7-2-0). Mitch Marner added two assists.

Toronto has won at least seven of its first nine games for the first time since the 1993-94 season and just the seventh time overall in franchise history.

Adrian Kempe and Trevor Lewis scored for Los Angeles (6-1-1), which had won four in a row. Jonathan Quick stopped 31 shots.

Toronto defenseman Roman Polak made his season debut after signing a $1.1 million, one-year deal on Sunday. He had one assist and played 12-plus minutes (see full recap).

Couture, Jones lead Sharks past struggling Rangers
NEW YORK -- Logan Couture had a goal and an assist, Martin Jones stopped 33 shots and the San Jose Sharks beat the struggling New York Rangers 4-1 on Monday night.

Tim Heed, Joonas Donskoi and Melker Karlsson also scored to help the Sharks win for the third time in four games. Jones got his fourth straight win after losing his first two starts.

Mika Zibanejad scored and Henrik Lundqvist finished with 20 saves for the Rangers, who fell to 2-6-2 on the season. New York finished 0 for 6 on the power play and is 3 for 25 over the last six games.

With the Sharks leading 3-0 after two periods, Couture took the puck away from Lundqvist behind the goal and sent it to Karlsson, who put it in for his second of the season at 2:51 of the third. Couture got his 200th career assist on the play.

San Jose turned the puck over in its defensive zone and Zibanejad snapped a shot into the top right corner to spoil Jones' shutout bid at 4:23 of the final period (see full recap).
