What a great game! Another 4th quarter drive by Eli Manning.
I had a severe cardiac attack here. . .but in the end. . .
nothing like watching a great SuperBowl!
Helps with the NFL season over depression that usually sets in around now
It has just seemed to be Eli's year. He has been awesome late in 4th quarters all season long.
Even though I am a Cowboys fan (as you know), I was happy to see NY (NFC EAST team) win the Super Bowl.
It was an awesome game!!!!!
I know what a Cowboys fan you are!
Not an easy one for me as you know I spread my football love across the conferences. I love my AFC Jets as much as I love my NFC Giants. Hardest game for me this season was the one that sealed the Giants fate.
As long as its in NY .. . well need I say more!
And I bet you would love an all NY Super Bowl!?!?
OY Michael I am not so sure about that. . .it would kinda be like Olivia Manning having her two sons against play each other! You win yet lose at the same time. So much more enjoyable to see the Patriots go down, again!
By the way, thanks for posting this Michael!
Great game! And I won a little bit of money for guessing Madonna's age! :-)
Words can't express how proud I am of my Giants. I wish I could lie to all of you and tell you that when their record was a humble 7-7 that I knew deep down that they would make a Super Bowl run and beat everyone that stood in their way...But then I would be a liar. Instead, I'll tell you the truth:
That they were blowing their assignments on coverage
That they weren't wrapping up during their tackles
That they were playing like a second-tier team
That they couldn't run the football well
That they had no desire to win
That Head Coach Tom Coughlin had lost control of his team because the players weren't responding to him
I really wasn't expecting much from them; the 2011 New York Football Giants, much like in the 2007 New York Football Giants who defied logic by uniting together and proving all of the naysayers wrong. And amiss all that went wrong, including the rash of injuries not up to and including the season-ending injuries to linebacker Jonathan Goff and cornerback Terrell Thomas, often injured Osi Umenyiora, key losses to Pro Bowlers Rich Seubert, Shaun O'Hara, and Steve "The Gift" Smith to the hated rival Philadelphia Eagles and let's not forget Kevin Boss who left NYC to the Oakland Raiders for more money, the Giants were left for dead...Realistically, when you take all of this into account, how much can you really expect out of the 2011 New York Giants?
...But then this team got healthy at the right time and started playing well at just the right time, beginning with the win over the Jets and then sweeping the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East crown. With pre-season sensation Victor Cruz emerging as a star this year, Eli Manning playing by far, his best and most consistent football (61% Completion, 29 TDs, 16 INTS, 4,933 YDS) and Jason Pierre-Paul literally rising to the occasion (remember, he blocked Dallas' field goal) the Giants always had a chance to win every game they played.
And who the HELL thought that they would beat 15-1 Green Bay AT Lambeau?
But that's exactly why I love Big Blue more than oxygen.
But I NEVER doubted this little fact: That as long as the Giants have Eli Manning, they'll always have a fighting chance to win. Canton will be calling for him when he decides to call it quits. I guarantee it.
GO BIG BLUE!!! From a loyal fan, congrats to you and thank you.
Had to laugh. Bradshaw said his momentum took him into the endzone on the last touchdown. Watched it several times, he wanted to make it look like he wanted to stop, but very obvious he wanted to score.
I'm heart-broken, but the Pats just weren't on their game. Giants were. Congrats.
HOWEVER...this crap about telling Giselle "Manning owns your husband"...poor sport.
It's an especially curious taunt considering Manning and Brady have never opposed each other out on the field at the same time. Eli has been better against the Patriots defense than Brady has been against the Giants defense. If they want to taunt someone it should be Wes Welker for that dropped ball or someone on the Pats defense that gave up nearly 400 yards.

The Giants and 49ers were both underdogs this past weekend, and both came away with a win. Now they'll play each other for the right to advance to the Super Bowl. Who do you think will win this matchup?

The Giants and Patriots will face each other in the Super Bowl for the second time in five years. The Giants were 9-7 during the regular season but seemed to figure things out just in time for the playoffs. The Patriots...

Next week's divisional game between the Giants and Packers should be a good one. Last time they met in Week 13, the Packers won 38-35 in MetLife Stadium. Rodgers engineered a last-minute drive to set up a 31-yard field...

First off, I'd like to thank my lucky stars that the Giants won last Sunday. Their defense tried to lose the game for them, as they failed to hold a 10-point lead against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. The...
