I love that the New York Giants are getting all worked up because the Washington Redskins, their opponent this week, signed quarterback Andre Woodson to their practice squad.
The Giants cut Woodson Saturday, so the Giants are worried the Redskins will empty his brain of all their secrets.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin expects it.
I remember when he did it.
In 1997, in the week before Coughlin's Jacksonville Jaguars were to play the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Jaguars signed quarterback Jim Miler, who had been let go by the Steelers.
Some believe that's the reason Steelers linebacker Greg Lloyd hit Jaguars receiver Keenan McCardell with a cheap shot on the game's first play. Lloyd said it was because McCardell called his house during the week leading up to the game, a claim that was never substantiated.
At any rate, Coughlin has done the same thing he's worrying about now. Maybe that's why he's so paranoid about it.
They all do it.
By the way, how many secrets are there anyway?
