Thursday Beastlines: Giants and Redskins
Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
Paul Schwartz has a story on the Brandon Jacobs-Ray Lewis matchup in the Post. Ralph Vacchiano of Daily News fame talks about Jacobs-Lewis on his blog. By the way, does anyone know when Gary Myers' blog is being launched?
Mike Garafolo also decides to join the Ray Lewis party. He wants you to know that Lewis wasn't taking shots at Jacobs. And I'm really not sure how anyone would interpret what Lewis said as a "shot."
Cornerback Fred Smoot is teaching area kids to hate the Cowboys at an early age. He also made reference to the Redskins "beating the Cowboys to death" in Dallas earlier this season. I'm thinking the Redskins community relations department might want to provide Fred with a few talking points next time he heads over to an elementary school. But he was certainly entertaining. Can you imagine some of the conversations at the dinner table Tuesday night: "Honey, what'd you learn in school today? Well, we learned how important it was to hate the Cowboys." The Redskins have apparently asked Smoot to consider using words such as "strong dislike" and "don't care for" in future school visits.
