Say whatever you want about the Giants and Eagles (I don’t care about either), but there’s no doubt these numbers are impressive.

The Eagles aren’t any good and the Giants are fighting to be the worst team in the league. Neither squad is impressive on any level.

Neither one is even a little bit good.

Yet, more than 10 million people tuned in. That’s a really good sign for the NFL, ESPN and the people running the show.

If people are turning out at this rate for a game between two trash teams, then you know business is booming at the highest levels.

I hope we never have to hear an argument about the league in decline ever again, but that’s just clearly not the case.
