    Warner, Giants are booed in final exhibition game

    FROM NEWS SERVICES

    09/03/2004

    Kurt Warner of the Giants is sacked by Terrell Suggs (left) and T.J. Slaughter of the Ravens.

    Playing at home, Kurt Warner and the New York Giants were being booed by halftime of a 27-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in an NFL exhibition game Thursday night.

    Warner completed seven of nine passes for 79 yards. On the opening series, Warner completed a 49-yard pass to Tim Carter to set up a 24-yard field goal by Todd France.

    However, on a third-and-9 from the Giants 14, McAlister stepped in front of Kurt Warner's pass to Amani Toomer along the left sideline and returned it 23 yards for a 14-3 lead.

    Warner was sacked on a fourth-and-4 at the Ravens 41, setting up the Ravens, who drove four plays, scoring on Musa Smith's 6-yard touchdown run with 1:50 left in the half.

    New York trailed 24-3 at the half and left the field to a loud chorus of boos.

    Eli Manning completed four of seven passes for 99 yards for the Giants.

    Ravens seven-time Pro Bowl tackle Jonathan Ogden hurt his knee. He was injured with 2:57 left in the first quarter and was diagnosed with a sprained left knee.

    Recently signed player Deion Sanders took the train from Baltimore to New Jersey on Thursday and watched the game on the sideline, wearing a black shirt, shorts and carrying a yellow towel.

    Wow, who'd a thunk it? New Yorkers turning on their team as quickly as they jump on a bandwagon.

    More power to you, Kurt. I wouldn't want to try to play in that town.

    Not trying to piss on his parade, but I don't think he had much of a choice. There weren't a lot of teams that were courting him with notions of competing for the starting job.

    I'd retire.

    As much as I hate to admit it, I started getting use to KW throwing sideline passes for INTs at the start of the 2000 season.

    Well, this was to be expected. The giants are still going to suck this year no matter who is at QB, they are a mess. It was the best situation for Kurt to get into, regardless of the fan reactions.
