Im glad they won. It would have been cool to see the Pats go undefeated, but the Giants earned every point on that board.

PS - did you catch all the 1d/1ds equipment after the game!? geez

I couldn't DISAGREE with you more. The Pats won every single game. You're going to tell me one friggin game is the end-all? Paleese... time to re-evaluate the Superbowl. :rolleyes:

With the Pats winning all of their regular season games...it made the SuperBowl even more of a spectical.

The SuperBowl is THE GAME....if lost...like the Pats said during the press conferences....it doesnt mean anything to go undefeated in the regular season. Maybe thats just them trying to optimistic and humbling...who knows. Noone remembers the losers...just the winners...but I dont see the Patriots ever being forgotten...just the amazing story of the Giants being tagged along with the Patriots story.
"The Patriots could have been the greatest team ever...BUT"

"Thats Why They Play The Game!"

Ok, raised in NJ attending Giants games. Spent 20 years in Boston watching a loser team for years. The Pats were the total underdogs of their day. When they had Bledsoe, they were lousy. When Parcels (yes Giants fans, Parcels) was there, they were lousy. Then Brady came along. I don't care about the Superbowl. The Patriots have quite clearly proven themselves the best team this year. And if you had followed the Patriots in the 80s and 90s, you'd think so too. Having attended Giants games with my Dad as a youngster, nothing compares to my loyalty to the Patriots. There's just something about that team...

You got that right, on both edits ;)

I think New England succumbed to the pressure of an undefeated season.They nearly lost to the Giants at Game 16, last game of the regular season. In retrospect, it might have been better if they lost that game - the perfect season pressure would be gone and perhaps they could have played a bit more relaxed.

Giants win though, and that's a good thing :mrgreen:

When they're trying to go undefeated, yes, that one "game" is the end-all.

the thing is, if you don't finish the race you don't win the prize.

They played great all year but they did not play great today and the Giants defense did. From an unbiased fan (Raider nation over here ;) ), the Giants outplayed them and deserved to win. Even the Pat's coach said "it's a one game season"...when it come to the championship, you've got to win it.


Anyway, what a GREAT game....:mrgreen:

I didn't care for the teams, especially the Pats. I only watched the last 35 seconds. I thought the CBS Report was more interesting. ;)

I just wanted some team, any team, to wipe that arrogant smirk off Belichick's face.

OMG!!! This team is not arrogant. I'm sorry, but I have to defend the Pats. They are the most down- to-earth team out there. Did you know up until a couple of years ago, they didn't even have a professional field to play on?! It was like a joke! And they overcame the odds. The Giants have been playing in a pro stadium forever and call themselves a New York team even though they play in New Jersey?! :rolleyes:

A lot of the Pats might be retiring this year - one of whom had a stroke, but kept on playing. If that isn't loyalty to the game, I don't know what is...

C'mon guys, both teams played toe to toe. The Pats are a great team and seemed unstoppable. The Giants rose up to the challenge, and almost fell short. I'm a Giants fan, but truth be told I would be happy if the Pats won since going undefeated would have been a really impressive feat. What I don't understand is why some people just can't be happy for the winners.

The same two teams playing each other provided possibly the two most entertaining games all season. Considering the Pats barely beat the Giants in their regular season game, I don't know why they were heavily favored today.

Anyway, there is no question the Giants were the better team on the field today, and the score was not really indicative of their superiority.

I would be disappointed of course. I wouldn't be surprised actually, the Pats are pretty good. I guess being underdogs allows one to lose more gracefully, if it came to that.

Oh, I see now. Everyone hates the Pats because they got TOO good, lol. ;) C'mon Pats fans, chime in. You KNOW you want to! Guess what? I'm not even a huge football fan, but my husband is. And I know this game really must've bummed him out. It's never fun to hear happy cheers on behalf of the opposing team. So I've put my 2 cents in. Have a good night all and congrats to the Giants. At least my Father will be happy. Wooptie Doo. :p

Jeez not everyone hates the Pats. If anything at all, you have to appreciate the game, it was down to the wire and wasn't decided until the very last seconds. 35 seconds to go, the Pats were on offense and everybody knew that it wasn't over yet by a long shot. It just wasn't meant to be.

I have disliked the Pats as a team for longer than I can remember (think pre-Bledsoe years). I was glad to see the Giants win.

That being said, there are a lot of class acts on the Patriots team. Bruschi, Seau, etc. are great people and players alike. There are also a lot of class acts on the Giants team as well. It was one of the better games I've seen in a long time and a lot of credit goes to both teams for playing this game.

We could only be so lucky to see another Superbowl (or even regular season game, for that matter) this good next year.

Not particularly a Giants fan...But I am a Manning fan. I've had the opportunity to meet both Archie and Peyton on several occasions. They are a couple of the nicest people you would hope to meet. I assume Eli is the same. I like to cheer for good people.

I was so happy when it was over. The whole game talking about an un-defeated season, to the very end. The Pats paying those announcers or what? As a Packer fan, from Wisconsin I was jumping up and down when the Giants won the Super Bowl with all those Canon's in the background just made me misty.

No I just don't like the Pats ! I'm a Raider fan :oops:. Ever since that fumble years ago , in the playoffs , that was ruled a "tuck" I have disliked the Pats. Whoever heard of that rule anyway ? We where robed :D !

The only time I root for a NFC team in the Super Bowl , is when they play the Pats. This was sweet.

I felt bad when the Giants lost to the Patriots during the season. They should have won that game. My husband said to me after the game, well if the two teams had to split the games, the Giants probably made out better. :)

The Giant's didn't have anything to win in this game. If they lose the game, then that what everyone is expecting them to do. If they won the game, everyone will still consider the NE Patriots as the best team in the NFL.

I think it is rediculous that Eli Manning got the MVP tonight. He had a 44 QB rating in the first 3 quarters, had a average game (19-34, 255yds, 1TD). The only reason the Giants win this game is due to their Defense. I sat in awe watching the defense swarm, frustrate, make plays on the NE offense. I find it absolutely amazing that the Giant's D was able to hold the record breaking NE offense to just 14 pts. To me its a slap in the face to the defense to award Eli Manning the MVP, when the D is why NY won tonight. Their defense has been just incredible during this playoff run.

I just wanted to go for the Giants. I just do not like the Pats. I never have and with the whole spy games thing, meh... I know it's in the past now and they have "moved on" but I like the Giants more than the Pats... and I will usually go for the team I like more once my team has been knocked out.

I didn't care for the teams, especially the Pats. I only watched the last 35 seconds. I thought the CBS Report was more interesting. ;)

I wanted to see that smile go away too, and boy did it!

Yeah I didnt find that kosher at all. What a poor sport. So what, a "perfect" season was lost, oh well!

that's definitely gonna be in highlight reels for the next 20 years!

I wouldnt say that, but it was definitely a good game.

This is crazy. Going into next year, it is very possible that NY Giant's may not even be picked to win their division (a division that yielded 3 playoff teams this year, with a surging Eagles team that came on strong during the end of the year). There is going to be some very tough competition in the NFC East this next year.

Had the Patriots lost that game, I think it would have been better for them at the Superbowl, where they could have played looser without the burden of a perfect season upon them. Oh well, it worked for the Giants, who needed every help they can get for the win.

That last second was silly, though it had to be played out to close the game. Sad that Belichick wasn't there with his troops though.

His call. He left the field early. I think he believed that he could surrender.

10 years ago, I saw a college game like this. With two seconds left, the offense fumbled the snap. Someone from the defense picked it up, and ran it back for a TD.

Never give up.

The whole Miami Dolphins comparison has got to end. The NE Pat's won MORE games this year than the Dolphins did in 1972. I'm no NE Pat's fans, but I think they were clearly a better team than the 1972 Dolphins. 1972 got out easy, as they got to play 2 less games.

Holy cow, I thought that Buffalo Bills field goal miss was a miracle, this just tops it...it was almost NY Yankee-esqe in it's miraculous nature.

Helmet catch, barely missed interception, 4th and 1...what can you say?

Oh yeah...that strip by Tuck was classic.

That defense was UNBELIEVABLE...just amazing...the most important game of the year and they stepped up BIG TIME.

I thought they might come apart at the end, but they sucked it up and came though.

I think the testament to how great the Pats were was how the Giants sidelines looked, with 35 seconds left...they still looked concerned because they know 1 play to Moss could end the game. That's respect.

But again, the defense came through...the giant win...thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa GIANTS WIN!!!!

Okay, congrats to the giants for winning one of the sloppiest football games I've ever seen.

How many times did Brady get sacked? I'd say 5-6, but he also got knocked down probably 15 more times in addition to that. Moss was covered heavily the whole game and didn't really get to make any big game changing plays. Brady was clearly off his game, but with all the pressure to complete a 19-0 season, I think this is reasonable.

At least when I saw it, Brady's yardage and QB ratings were higher than Mannings. I'm pretty sure this went in favor even more for Brady in the last quarter, so to say that Manning had a great game is kind of ridiculous.

The giants got a few breaks - most notably Manning breaking that sack with a minute or two remaining... among other things (recovering most of their numerous fumbles).

I feel like the pats offensive line was the main problem for them. That combined with the outstanding defense of the giants was just too much pressure for Brady.

Yeah, an 18-1 season with Brady breaking all sorts of records, as well as Moss, isn't that bad.

255 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT . . . the 2 TDs were in the 4th quarter . . . the last drive started with 2:40 left on the clock . . . Manning did it when he needed to . . . in crunch time. How is doing that to win the Super Bowl not having a great game? If you're a stats man, more power to you . . . I'm more of a WIN FIRST person. OK, Brady threw for 11 more yards than Manning on 10 more completions and he has the record for TDs in the season . . . Eli is holding the Vince Lombardi trophy this year!!!

You want to talk about breaks?

The Pats had them too...toss to Plax that was overshot that would have sealed the game? 12 men on the field? Remember that nugget? Yeah, the G-men stopped the Pats twice on that drive. They spotted the Pats another 4 downs, and stopped them.

Sorry, this it a game the Giants snagged away from the Pats. It was a classic Rocky vs. Apollo game..

Eli was MVP? I thought he had a bad game by his standards. Whereas Strahan had an excellent game. It should have been him, but isn't it "the norm" to pick the QB of the winning team?

Whilst I have much of the second half still to watch (score was 3-7 Pats with 7 remaining in the 3rd when I conked out last night), but I thought that the Giants' defence was playing superbly, whereas Eli was having a bit of a shocker.

Actually, Eli played great if you go by his standards a few months ago. These past few games, we have witnessed him mature rather quickly into a most effective quarterback. There were times in the game when he should have been sacked, but he did a Houdini and managed to keep the drives alive, especially that miracle pass to Tyree.

You are right though, the defense was stellar in this game, they held the Pats to 14. Even Tom Coughlin figured that they need 28 points to win, but the withering pass rush defense simple overwhelmed Brady's offense.

As a lifelong Packer fan I feel vindicated! :D The Giants have only improved week after week as it seems the Pats have been resting a bit on their laurels. I still don't understand why the Pats were picked by 12. With the Giants defense playing as it has the second half of the season they should not have been considered as big an underdog as they were. Remember, defense wins FB games. And the Giants defense proved that they were there to win. I believe they should have won the MVP slot.

I am not a huge Manning fan (lets see what those boys can still do in 10 years) but I have to admit I was on my feet cheering for Eli when he eluded the Pats defense for that big play.

Shame on you "Belicheat" for leaving your team alone on the field to finish the game. I had a sour taste in my mouth for him this year but now that taste has become unbearable. What a disgrace!!!!!

It seems like you are convenient in your facts.

Just one name for you...Plaxico...he had much more than a sprained ankle, and he has to run all those routes, wrestle with corners and secondaries, still manages to win the game winning touchdown.

End of story...

I think most of us give props to the Pats. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The Pats are an amazing team. 35 seconds left. Did you see the faces on the Giants players and coaches? They weren't smiling. They knew as long as the Pats had Brady and Moss, they were still dangerous.

That was the most nervous 35 seconds in recent memory with watching sports.

That should tell you about the respect level that the Giants and NY fans have for the Pats.

There's no "well the Pats are the better team" or "well they went undefeated in the regular season" consolation prize. The consolation prize is "well, you made it to the Super Bowl."

Vegas always wins. They set up the point spread so that an equal amount of money is bet on each team. The point spread is not based on the relative strengths of both teams as some people believe. Instead the point spread is based on the public's impression and popularity of each team. Since so may people wanted to bet on the Pats, the point spread had to be high enough to entice an equal amount of money be bet on the Giants. Vegas then pays the winners from the money collected from the losers and keeps the vig.

That's sports for you...and that's why a lot of us watch, because you never know.

But you know what, this is like acing all the job interviews and not getting the job. Would you be happy that you did well in all of them except the deciding one? Do you pat yourself on the back and say "Hey, you did a heck of a job except the one that was the decider?" In the end, the most important thing in an NFL season is to win the Super Bowl. That's the goal. PERIOD!

Just ask Junior Seau. I am sure he would have given up the perfect season for a 10-6 season plus the ring. Absolutely, 100%, no doubt about that.

Look at how people talk about the Yankees. I love em', no doubt, but they haven't one the big one since 2000. They make it to the playoff every single year. No ring? Better luck next year it is...


Um... no. I really kind of believe winning every game up to the Superbowl deserves a little credit. :rolleyes:
