Emmitt. Emmitt. Emmit.

"If they [the Giants] win today, they possibly go onto the Super Bowl and make an appearance there."

Funny thing is after the game last night Eli Manning basically said the same thing. You could tell he knew he messed up but didnt correct himself. I think it was T. Bradshaw he was talking to. Whats this world coming to????

I cannot believe the Giants won! I so wanted cutie Brett Favre and his team to win.

Emmitt seems like a good guy. But these guys are ex-jocks - they're not trained communicators.

For 8:56: He said they'd "possibly" go on to the Super Bowl. There was no "possibly" about it - it was a certainty. That's why they played the game.

For all of you perfect linguists out there, go out in below zero temps for a few hours and let some big men beat on you and have tens of thousands screaming in your ear. Then, find out you've achieved your goal as a professional. Then, try to compile perfect sentences when immediately following this some dumb reporter asks you a stupid, obviuos questions like "what's next" or "how do you feel"?

er...12:15, I'm pretty sure that Emmitt was in the studio and knew they would be asking him that question. In fact, most of the time, those comments are more or less scripted.

Yeah, maybe they win, and don't go into the Superbowl. That would be pretty awesome.

Wait, they won. Do they get to go to the Super Bowl, or do they have to watch it on TV?

That's mildly funny that Emmitt said that. However, try carrying on a conversation with a court reporter taking down every word you say--and we ALL tend to look like idiots (incomplete sentences, words left out, etc.).
