Superbowl 42 Champions; The New York Football Giants

The New England Patriots threw the Superbowl away, and the Giants picked it up and took it home.  I mean, could Brady have played more like dogshit?  Could that line have collapsed more under the Giant’s defense?  The Pats failed over and over and over to capitalize on mistakes.  The Giants defense pummeled Brady and got pressure any time they felt like it.  Meanwhile the Giants offensive line held like it was made of steel.

How many times did Brady overthrow, or throw to the wrong side of Moss?  How more wide open could Randy have gotten even through double coverage?  How much more could Welker do?  And Maroney can’t run if NO ONE BLOCKS.

Brady played like he couldn’t be bothered.  Matt Light played like he weighed 165.  And instead of the Pats capitalizing, the Giants played like they were the undefeated team.  Eli Manning moved the ball almost at will, and it was the sheer grit of the Pats D that kept the score as low as it was.

Plus, and there’s no other way to say this, Belichik pulled a total dick move by running out on the field and then running away down the tunnel.  All he did was make all the press and Pats haters right about him.  If Tom Coughlin had done that, you can bet that it would have pissed Bill off to no end.

The Patriots had every opportunity to win this thing.  The defense played like crazy but for fuck’s sake, Tom’s gotta score.  He needs to learn to move.  Eli got held by no less than three Patriots pass rushers, escapes and throws a huge pass downfield.  Tom?  Stand there and gets hit, or throws it away over and over.  I’m standing by my boys, but they deserved to lose that one, and they deserve the drumming they are gonna take in the NY sports press.  Not only that, but the Giants deserved to win.

Son of a bitch.  So much for the NFL setting the Pats up as the golden boys, though.  Anyone who believed that was barking mad.

Dear Bill,

Work on that O line.  You need some younger, faster, stronger, bigger bodies in there.  Age & wisdom only take you so far in today’s NFL.  It ain’t like the old days.  Also, keep Gisele the fuck away from games.  It didn’t work for Romo and it ain’t gonna work for Tom either.

Signed,

A disappointed fan

I actually don’t think Bill leaving was a dick move. There was only 1 second left, everyone figured game over. He came mid field with the other team and shook the coaches hand.  blame the NFL more for saying that last play HAD to be ran. Everyone knew it was a kneel down. just tick the second off the clock. I mean fans were on the field...as much as I dislike Belichik I cut him slack on that one.

ANd that pass Eli made, I despise Eli, but that was a great move and throw. I give him credit for that.

All I can say is wow.  The Giant’s defence played awesome, and Pat’s offence couldn’t do anything right. Eli finally got it together to beat the Pats, but still...wow.  These were the 2 best teams in the NFL?

I know this is a sensitive time for you guys,
and I don’t want to seem callous or inappropriate…

but…

(heh)

...I. TOLD.  YOU.  SO!!!

Bwahahahaha!

Seriously. Maybe I overestimated the score a bit,
(I predicted 21-24 Giants <you can check>.)
but I knew it would be an upset by 3, anyway.
Gotta give a brutha credit for that much, eh?

And yeah, Bill totally acted the bitch on this one. But in his defense, the stakes were a little higher for him than most coaches.
How many other coaches have ended the big game losing not only the Super Bowl ring, but the opportunity to have the first perfect season, ever?
That’s a big prize to get stripped from you.
I’m not surprised he reacted badly.
I can’t say I’d have done any better.
(Actually, I probably would have grabbed closest blunt object and chased Manning around, swinging it wildly.)

Still, everything else aside…

....WHAT A GREAT FUCKING GAME!!!

I only really watched the last 1/2 of the 4th quarter and I heard the “vote for who you think wanted it most by txting..” thing a dozen times.  That last Giants drive when Manning broke free from a tackle that even the announcers were just shocked at… then proceeded to throw a hell of a pass for a 1st down; I immediately thought that he deserved to win that award right there.

‘72 Dolphins man.  Learn your history :P

Buzzion, read it again. How many coaches lost the SB while being undefeated. 1. Bill did.

I don’t really blame Bill for walking. I was standing there repeating, “Just run the clock, the game is over” and yet the NFL just had to be anal about doing the final play despite what would have to be the greatest sports miracle to happen if the Giants lost the ball, the Pats recovered and somehow scored off of a kneel down.

I believe some time in the first half I thought how the game had this vibe that it was going to come down to the final drive/play kind of like the Titans/Rams game did. After the scramble and catch, I told my friend, “If they win this game, that play gets immortalized.” As soon as they scored, he turned and said, “Immortalized huh?”

What was so painful about saying it is I’m a Pats fan via Brady. Even just as a fan of the game, I wanted to see a team go 19-0. Certain ‘72 Dolphin players did come across as bitter about the whole thing. Even when somebody asked Montana about his teams were similar to the Pats, reading between the lines it sounded like he slighted the Pats in a way as to say the 49’s could have beat them. Well, I think they did match up extremely well against them. Just seemed odd how he phrased his response.

This feels like dating the most amazing girl ever and proposing to her only to have her say no. Add in her showing up at a party later on with the brother of that guy you hate, and yeah, I would be leaving that party right then and there regardless of how much time was left.

Brady was off, but considering the O Line play, I don’t blame him too much.

Unless I missed something, where was Archie? I found it odd Peyton was the only one shown in the booth. It was like Palatine watching a young Vader grow into role within the dark side. Uh yeah, so not a fan of Peyton. :P

Now if the Pats had tried a field goal instead of going for it on 4th and 12…

Oh Hell.

I’m not gonna do the whole, “The Pats lost this game...the giants didn’t win it” crap. The Giants D line, and really front 7 with the blitzes, took it to the Pats O line last night. They dominated the game from the first Pat’s snap and never relented. And through it all the thing that is hardest for me is how the Pat’s D still had a chance to end it several times on the final drive. Dropped INT, missed sack, but the giants made every play they needed to.

Congrats Giants and Giant fans - you earned it. Enjoy it.

Yeah I misread that my bad.

Belichick.Elitist.Mentality.

I have to disagree, the game wasn’t over.

I don’t care how devastated he was, the moment wasn’t ABOUT him. Classy people understand when the moment isn’t about them.

It was without class and Its totally within his character. He still should have stuck around for the last second of play. The team had to and he should have too, he should have stayed around to congratulate the Giants players. But that’s Belichik, he’s a jerk and a sore loser. His actions are no reflection on his team though, they were a class act afterwords, from what I could tell.

Here at the Colts Complex, the mood is so happy, you’d think we repeated.

Damn. You got me.

And you know, I did know that, too.
Sorry. Brain fart.

And no, you didn’t misread it.

I honestly just totally forgot the ‘72 fins.

And through it all the thing that is hardest for me is how the Pat’s D still had a chance to end it several times on the final drive. Dropped INT, missed sack, but the giants made every play they needed to.

See, here’s the thing; this is precisely the way we (Giants fans) felt after our loss to the Pats in their last face-off.
But we knew we could beat ‘em, and damn near did.
By all rights, we should have, really.

So afterwards, when everyone was playing down Big Blue’s chances (For Christ’s sake, the spread was +12 points for the Pats!!!) a lot of us were confused, and more than a little pissed.
I think the Pats flawless win record was getting more attention than their actual performance in those games. Suddenly everyone was forgetting how many they should not have won, to concentrate on how many actual wins they had.

Look, I like the Pats. I like Brady.
I just don’t honestly think they deserve a good chunk of the praise they’d been getting. They certainly don’t deserve the “best team ever” talk that had been going around. If you notice, a lot of the commentators agree, too. Immediately after the game, they were scrambling over themselves to retract any statements they’d made to that effect.

I’m just saying this; I was not at all surprised by the outcome of this game, and neither were many people who never got caught up in the dynasty talk or 19-0 hype.
If you watched the season objectively, without being affected by those things, you would have given the Giants equal chances going into this game. Especially if you remembered how it was only one turnover that stopped them from beating the Pats last time.

I actually yelled at one of the other party guests Sunday night about that.
He kept saying “I can’t believe we beat them!”.
I told him that it was asshats like him, who didn’t believe, that had been fueling the dowgrading of our team in the first place, and thank god none of the players were as defeatist as he was, or we wouldn’t have had a chance.

But ah’mjusssay’n…
