This time around I don’t think it’ll take one of the most exciting plays in Super Bowl history to do it but I think the Giants win again. I am almost cringing making this pick because if the Giants win there will be foolish people out there who will want to say that Eli is a better quarterback then Peyton. I just know this will happen. Whether it is callers (or even hosts on WFAN) or football fans in general, you just know there is a segment of the population that will say it. It really is a shame that Peyton Manning never got to play with a defense that was consistently as good as the one Brady (and Roethlisberger) got early in their careers.
Everyone (outside of Las Vegas) seems to be picking the Giants to win this time around and that scares me. It hasn’t been said much over the course of Tom Brady’s career but Eli Manning is the better quarterback right now. I think the Giants pass rush gets to Tom Brady again and forces a couple of turnovers. I have thought for two weeks that we’ll see Chad Ochocinco make an impact in this game. I still think that is the case. It would be typical Bill Belichick.
Congrats to all Giants fans out there. To everyone who’s been critical of Eli all year…..I told you so! What a game. Great to see the Pats go down. Eli was brilliant on the final drive. That pass to Tyree…..what can I say. Play of the year without a doubt. Man I hate New York as a whole…..but it is great to see the Patriots go down. No one cares about 18-1…..if anything they are the 3rd best 18-1 team of all time. Big kudos to the Giants defense. They made the Patriots offensive line look bad all day. If this was Strahan’s last game….what a way to go out. Hopefully more comes out about spygate in the next couple of days and the Pats suffer some more.
Man I love sports. 6 weeks ago everyone hated Coughlin and Eli. Now Coughlin is going to walk away with a 5 year extension and Eli is set for life in New York.
On November 19th I said one of the NY teams would beat the Pats……hopefully the Giants prove me right tonight. The game should definitely be a lot closer then what a lot of people are predicting. Giants definitely need this to be a low scoring game. It’s raining so the Dome should be closed. I think Eli will have himself another solid game. Giants definitely need a big game from Jacobs as they definitely need to keep the Pats off the field.
So how many people here had the Giants in the NFC Championship game? Yeah, I didn’t think so. How many people thought Eli would go deeper into the playoffs then Peyton? What a strange year it has been indeed. I am not a Giants fan but hopefully the moaning and groaning from Giant’ fans stops now about Eli.
