A collection of hate mail from our garbage containers series

All week last week, we’ve been posting 10 Reasons Why Each of the NFC East Teams Will Be a Dumpster in 2022, highlighting each team’s biggest flaws heading into the season. If you missed it, you can catch up here:


Cowboys | Giants | Commanders | eagles

The series attracted a lot of emails, like every year. This year, however, I received more positive emails than ever. In recent years, Giants fans have been by far the nagging fanbase in the NFC East. They still are, but based on the amount of support emails I’ve received from them, it seems they’ve finally reached the point where they’re no longer willing to defend their team. Many communicated that they deserve harsh criticism, even from a Philly writer, lol. As we described in their dumpster fire, 2021 was a very difficult year for the Giants, as it was one embarrassment after another:

  1. Joe Judge’s challenge of a non-challenging piece.
  2. The offside that gave Washington a second chance at a winning field goal.
  3. Jason Garrett demands the media call him ‘coach’.
  4. Kenny Golladay yells at Garrett on the sidelines.
  5. The owner kicks trash cans into the press bin after a loss.
  6. The free medium soft drinks.
  7. Judge’s epic press conference in which he claimed the Giants are “not a clown show,” and that players across the league were begging to play for him.
  8. The double QB sneaks from their own 5 meter line.

I think it makes sense that this was finally the year many of them broke. By the way, researching and explaining the above incidents was the most fun part of writing the series this year.

Anyway, as always people got angry too. So let’s show that one, with grammar and spelling mistakes uncorrected.

“Nobody cares about Jimmy outside of Philadelphia.”

#JimmyRebuttal: This email came from an account shared by two people named Jodi and Jason. The subject line said “Skins”, so I think they’re sticking to the old racist name of the team. I asked if it was Jodi or Jason who emailed me, or if they took turns typing each individual letter in all their emails. He replied:

“Jason. you’re a funny guy. I could have written more. I’ve decided not to. I haven’t read your entire article because it’s just a hate article. and you’re right. I can’t stand Philly.. .”

Jason took the time to email me but chose not to include his sickest burns.

“Hey Jimmy. You’re just a typical Philly prick. Uncomfortably overly blow-hard. Come through the NY trophy cabinet anytime and stare at the (4) Lombardis”

#JimmyRebuttal: I think primary schools should have a class dedicated to using “your” and “you are”. Keep it going for a whole year.

“Remember the last time you made an accurate prediction, YA Tittle was Giants QB😁😁😁😁!”

#JimmyRebuttal: Well, I have to admit I got owned here.

“F*** you.”

#JimmyRebuttal: “I’m not sure if this was a response to one of the articles about the dumpster fire or something else, but we’ll include it here.”

“The Giants have more class in their fingernails than you have in your entire body.”

#JimmyRebuttal: Wait, the Giants have fingers organizationally?

“About an intriguing wreck of the Giants as you need to focus on beating the Cowboys and Commanders (I’d love to read your piece on the latter who traded incredibly for the piece turned down by BOTH Philly & Indy).

One question: did you spend all that space trashing Mara to cover the fact that he has two Super Bowl wins in 17 versus just one for Lurie in 27?

#JimmyRebuttal: I am not focused on beating the Cowboys, Commanders, Giants or anyone else as I am neither a player on the team nor a member of the coaching staff or front office.

Of course, John Mara also inherited a team from his father, already a head coach and general manager who won a couple of Super Bowls at the time. Why exactly does John Mara deserve credit for that? He fired that coach and GM and has since made a string of embarrassingly unsuccessful hires.

“Come on, Jimmy. Except people believe that malarkey you write down?’

#JimmyRebuttal: Malarkey lol.

So this isn’t an email, but someone posted an 18-minute video on YouTube where he read point by point the Giants dumpster fire post. Honestly when I saw the title of the video I thought “OH YESSSSSSS, here we go!” But then he reluctantly ended up agreeing to most of what had been written.

And then there were a lot of people defending JaQ Del Rio.

“You have your ‘OPINION’, but that doesn’t make it right. I read your article “10 Reasons Why the Commanders Will Be a Dumpster This Season” and like most of today’s media, instead of stating facts, you want your stamp a personal opinion on it Tell me since “you” and other softees in the media decided Jan 6 was an attempted overthrow and not a “dust up”, I’ll assume you were there OR are you the type of person, Who believes everything they read and hear just because it is said or written?If the latter you are a hypocrite Just because you have a job where you can write down your “opinions” to the readers does NOT make it your opinion is correct based on the 1st amendment you can believe anything you want…just don’t expect all your readers to believe in your self-preserved BS your readers are entitled to an opinion too…whether you like it or not here’s some career advice… stick to reporting s port and leave politics out of it.”

#JimmyRebuttal: This person probably doesn’t think the Holocaust happened since he wasn’t there.

“No respect for Del Rio? For speaking the truth? I am from Pennsylvania and there is a video of votes being counted countless times and the voting machine gave President Trump only 85% of 1 vote and Potato Joe got 115% of the 1 vote. Your opinion sucks, but you’re entitled to it, JUST LIKE JACK! So you’re saying this January 6 committee is on the rise? You’re all the same liberal media scum”

#JimmyRebuttal: It’s just amazing what people are willing to believe when reality isn’t what they want it to be.

“Rivera should never fine Del Rio for speaking out and expressing his views on BLM riots? And you’re saying his players don’t like him? Well BooHoo! Suck the buttercup! No one condemned looting and burning businesses! And It was a riot on January 6 No burning of the capital and just a little minor looting And no responsibility for the police of the capital who shot and killed the Air Force veteran No other shots were fired And no guns were carried by protesters Why don’t you ask who Ray Epps is and why he hasn’t been arrested And how come the FBI can’t find the person who planted those weak pipe bombs with amateur firing equipment Get off Del Rio’s back , liberal puke!”

#JimmyRebuttal: I googled Ray Epps, it was a stupid conspiracy theory for sure, and well.

This person went on to say “Creachdawg”, which I made fun of in a reply. He replied, “Yeah, it’s my high school nickname! For my tenacity in sports! Unlike your liberal puke!”

Today I learned that liberal puke has no tenacity in sports.
