Are the Mets interested?:?So far, the Mets are not among the five teams to show early?interest in free-agent OF Melky Cabrera, a person with knowledge of his situation said in early November (Vorkunov, Nov. 7). Cabrera, who was extended a qualifying offer by Toronto, will cost his new team a first-round pick in next year's draft if he turns it down and, according to a team source, the Mets?have very little interest in giving up their top?pick (15th overall) (Martino, Nov. 4).

The late season lull that they have been accustomed to having has to change if they want to add more Super Bowls during this Eli era.

- Two Giants are injured on the Aaron Rodgers scramble play; Kenny Phillips and JPP are slow to get up. Phillips seems to be down with a right leg injury, which should be cause for concern given his long list of leg issues.
- Chase Blackburn stays stride for stride with Finley and knocks down Rodgers' 4th down attempt. The Giants offense scoring touchdowns has afforded the defense to play its style of football.
