Solely in August.

The place your Sinatra Tremendous Bowl championship is thrashing the Giants and struggling no main accidents if you happen to’re a Jets fan, and beating the Jets and struggling no main accidents if you happen to’re a Giants fan.

So look, the Giants are 0-0 and the Jets are 0-0, identical to Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers and Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow are 0-0, and if hope doesn’t spring everlasting now, when precisely will it?

So that is the proper day — we received’t be a buzz kill and name it the final day — to shut your large blue eyes or your green-and-white eyes and picture among the potential prospects:

Braxton Berrios returns the opening kickoff for a 95-yard landing.

Saquon Barkley, man on a mission, takes a checkdown from Daniel Jones, makes a juke that makes Kadarius Toney full of envy and takes it to the home, wanting very very similar to the Gold Jacket Man rookie.

“I do know he needs to do nice issues and we’re all prepared for him to do what he does,” Xavier McKinney informed The Put up on Friday. “He’s appeared nice the entire offseason in every thing that we’ve finished, however that’s nothing that wasn’t anticipated.”

(Suggestion: If Brian Daboll decides to maintain 26 on the sidelines, watch Matt Breida or Antonio Williams or Jashaun Corbin and dream about what an otherworldly again who has his legs again will imply.)

Elijah Moore cuts on a dime and will get deep on Adoree’ Jackson, and Joe Flacco connects on the bomb.

“Oh yeah, he’s a helluva participant,” McKinney mentioned of Moore. “I performed him in faculty one time, however he’s certainly one of them guys the place it’s like, ‘Ah man,’ like he’s a tricky cowl each time, particularly if you happen to get him in area. You already know it’s gonna be a protracted day for you.”

Jones exhibits continued mastery of Brian Daboll’s offense and will get the ball out shortly to Kenny Golladay for a change for a piece play.

“I believe he’s improved so much,” McKinney mentioned of Jones.“Clearly we feed off one another. We’ve conversations nearly what he sees from me and type of what I see from him to assist us each get higher. However I believe he’s finished a fantastic job of main the offense. Clearly it’s all new play-calling, they’ve finished a fantastic job with that of simply ensuring that every thing is on level.”

McKinney ranges from one facet of the sector to the opposite to intercept a deep shot from Flacco. A “We wish Mike White” chant erupts from the stands.

Garrett Wilson picks up the place he left off on the Jets-Giants joint follow when he catches a slant from Flacco in opposition to Aaron Robinson on third-and-long.

“I assumed he confirmed some indicators of nice pace, nice route-running, and I assumed he performed properly,” McKinney mentioned of Wilson.

Evan Neal pancakes Jermaine Johnson and someplace up there, Wellington Mara does a Michael Jackson moonwalk in entrance of a shellshocked Weeb Ewbank.

Quinnen Williams beats a double group and sacks Tyrod Taylor and John Mara kicks a press field trash can in disgust.

Andrew Thomas stones Carl Lawson earlier than Lawson remembers he has 60 p.c of effort, method and violence left, and sacks Jones instantly after Johnson will get the higher of Neal.

Sauce Gardner steps in entrance of Golladay for a pick-six of Jones, then trash-talks David Sills V earlier than wrestling the ball away from him within the subsequent sequence for one more pick-six. Ira From Staten Island instantly begins his speak radio assault.

“You see his dimension and size and expertise degree fairly simply,” Jones mentioned Thursday of Gardner. “He seems to be like a great participant.”

Duane Brown is flagged for holding a blitzing Micah McFadden and retreats to the sideline along with his head down. Robert Saleh snaps the 36-year-old vet out of it: “Optimistic Vibes Solely, DB.”

Greg Zuerlein boots a 67-yard area purpose into the wind.

Cor’Dale Flott intercepts White and a “We wish Streveler” chant erupts from the stands.

Austin Calitro intercepts Streveler and a “We wish Zach” chant erupts from the stands.

The most important roar comes when Denzel Mims makes a spectacular toe-tapping, one-handed catch in the precise nook of the tip zone for the go-ahead TD late within the fourth quarter.

However Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka dials up the profitable TD on a surprising tackle-eligible from the Jets 2 to sensible, robust, reliable Nigerian Roy Mbaeteka.

The prospect of a New York-New York Tremendous Bowl I used to be by no means greater than a pipe dream for the reason that Allie Sherman Giants slogged by way of a 1-12-1 season and the Joe Namath Jets completed 6-6-2, and each of our locals wound up watching the Lombardi Packers wax the Hank Schram Chiefs 35-10 at Los Angeles Memorial Stadium.

There have been tantalizing visions of a New York-New York Tremendous Bowl in 1986, when the Joe Walton Jets raced off to a 10-1 begin earlier than they crumbled and watched Phil Simms torch the Broncos in Pasadena, Calif., in Tremendous Bowl XXI.

Our annual Sinatra Tremendous Bowl arrives once more on Sunday. Take pleasure in it when you can.

When Daboll and Saleh meet for the postgame handshake, Daboll volunteers that he coached the sport with a abdomen bug. “All Gasoline No Break?” Saleh asks.
