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.
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.
