Great, another "New York vs. Boston" sporting event! Just what the rest of the country really wanted. NOT! :-i
OK, rant over. Congrats to the Giants on doing something very, very difficult-winning three road playoff games. Their D rose up when it needed to in all three games; and Eli Manning came of age with three outstanding performances in a row, to lead the New York football Giants to the NFL promised. Quite a feat-brothers, quaraterbacking teams to the Super Bowl-in back-to-back years, no less.
Congrats to the Patriots, for taking all comers, and heading to the Super Bowl with an unblemished record. They've withstood every test, and the pressure never got to them. Despite a subpar day from Superman, Tom Brady, they found a way to win-on the ground, no less, and their D kept San Diego out of the end zone.
I don't root for NYC teams very often, but I am in this one. And, in honor of the Pats and Giants, their helmets will be the next 2 NFL mini helmets I add to my growing collection.

I was pulling for the Giants for the simple fact that my home team, DA BEARS, beat the packers twice when in fact they should have ran all over them. HA! Let's go Pats! Scorched earth continues to the BOWL!

I hope you can find the authentic ones missing stripes and logos... Did you see that? I've never seen a game so cold that the logos were popping off the helmets. It must have been absolute hell playing in that game.. what where they drinking anyway? Warmed Gatorade??? Never heard it discussed what that stuff was... they showed a close up of it and it didn't look like coffee or tea or chocolate.. but sorta like a hot apple cider??
More power to both teams for having to not only play a game that cold but to go into OT...
But, now I gotta say I'm pulling for Eli and Coach Coughlin. Why?
Just to piss Tiki Barber off... now he can spend all spring and summer talking about how wrong he was about the Giants on the NFL network with his buddy Bryant Dumbell.
Quoting GuitrThree (Reply 15): Hey, wait, how can you say that? I don't see Ohio State listed ANYWHERE in the Superbowl!
I agree that the Patriots beat the Giants by the score of 28-24. And keep Ohio State discussion as far away as possible--they have lucked into the last two BCS Championship Games and got blown out in both games.

Damn. As I said in the other thread, what the HELL?!
Since I couldn't watch the game because I work (thanks to Australian business days because in my new account, my shift goes according to Australian business days), I'm even more shocked that I missed this match. Anyway, my prediction is that the Patriots will end this season in total perfection. 38-21 for the Patriots. Unless the Giants pull yet another upset, which somehow I still doubt even though they defeated Favre and the Pack, the Patriots will be perfect.

Last time I checked it's the "New York" Giants, regardless of where their stadium is:
Last time I checked, it pisses off NY fans to tell it like it is. MY JOB. Pissing off NY fans. I'm from BOS, and I HATE NY fans. Got it? Every post I make between now and the Super Bowl will refer to New Jersey.
Further: Mail a letter to the Giants. What state do you put on the envelope?
Logan, isn't it time for you to have another emotional meltdown, quit A.net, and then sign up again under a different user name once you've calmed down? Ha ha.

It doesn't matter where the Giants are from. In 20 years when this superbowl is talked about they will say "The Patriots won superbowl XLII defeating those other guys whose name escapes us at the moment because lets face it, they lost, so nobody remembers them."
Actually, its not. Your lack of football knowledge shows in that statement. Tiki left the Giants organization because he over, and over, said that Coughlin was a horrible coach. Because Tiki was over his prime, no one else was willing to pay for his overly inflated ego, thus retirement.
As we see, Coughlin is now in the big dance. Tiki is at home watching them.
I'm certainly not a Giants fan, but every now and then its nice to hear all these so-called experts to be so far wrong it's funny. Look at all the predictions. According to the "experts," the Giants weren't even going to get off the bus correctly during the wildcard weekend, much less make it to the Superbowl....
AND, to see one of the players who dissed his own team and coach to have egg on his face is just wonderful.
So no. it WASN'T the dumbest comment here.
Quoting AirCop (Reply 23): I'm sure Tiki is all concern that someone from TN is upset at him.
I meant that not that I was going to personally "upset" him. I meant that he is really embarrassed for running his mouth, and today is probably a real bad day for him.
25 Boeing7E7: One has to wonder what the score would have been without Charger injuries.
26 AirCop: In various sports coverage, and my source on the NFL network, most players in the league place Coughlin near the bottom of the coaches they wanted to
27 LTBEWR: I am still shocked at the Giants win. Some commentators before the game has suggested a 'puncher's chance' and I agreed with that. They didn't make to
28 Tom in NO: Patriots big in the Super Bowl, 35-21.....and Mercury Morris, Nick Buonticonti, Bob Griese, etc will be forever relegated to second best. Tom at MSY (
29 Dougloid: Yep...likewise. I've been watching since the days of Paterson Plank Road Joe Pisarcik and "the Fumble" and Craig Morton as well. Imagine...we used to
30 Steeler83: Yeah, otherwise, wouldn't they be called the "New Jersey Giants?" Who cares?! I do hope the Giants win, but if the Pats do win (which likely will hap
31 CastleIsland: If we judge one another by our internet behavior, we are truly pathetic. Nice try. The Giants are from New Jersey. Counter that. Perhaps you've notic
