Poor Ficken; not only has he missed a bunch, but he gets 'em blocked today now too. I really think O'Brien went for the FG to try to inspire some confidence in Ficken. The refs ejecting the Illinois guy for the hit on Lehman in the end zone was pretty questionable as well.
I am quite the fan of the matte finish on the Illinois helmets, though.
Even with the problems in Green Bay I think you have to be a little impressed by the Giants. 99% of the planet said Kurt Warner was washed up and done, but he's holding his own so far. And Tiki Barber learned how to hold onto the ball finally.
