Like we have a choice? Besides, Eli Manning has done nothing wrong towards the Steelers.

The Patriots suck, and it will be a very cold day in the Earth's core should I ever root for them. F them and F the city of Boston.

The G-Men will open up as heavy underdogs. Even more incentive to root for them. But this is a bad matchup.

I'm not watching it. I feel that Favre did such a fantastic job this year and that McCarthey should've been the coach of the year for having the season come together like they had.

I'll call it right now that it's not going to be as good of a game as the last time they met, and it's going to be a media fiasco with @$$hole Brady* 's face everywhere.

I'll go to bed that night rooting for the Cheatriots* to lose and nothing more. I don't care how or what happens, just as long as they do.

And like stated above, to heck with the city of Boston and all of those bandwagon cheater lovers.

Honestly, I accepted that the Patriots were going to win it all after they destroyed us. It's been a forgone conclusion as far as I am concerned.

I'm just sad the season is going to be over in 2 weeks. Of course I will watch the Super Bowl. Football season just doesn't last long enough. I am already looking forward to September.

I really don't like this matchup. But hey, maybe the G-Men will be the team to beat the Pats and keep them from going 19-0. That would probally make Bellicheat's head explode.

I have a good friend who is a Giants fan. She's so excited.

Go Giants...but I hope Plaxico has a bad game.

Living in New York, I love seeing this matchup! This is a classic Yankees vs. Red Sox Super Bowl. The Gmen used to play at Yankee Stadium, and the Pats are obviously close to Boston. I'm pulling bigtime for the Giants. Trust me, I've watched every game of theirs this season- they are a great team. If any defense can stop Mr. Brady, the Giants' can. Their defense is the best in the league in the NFL right now, period! I can't wait until Feb. 3rd! Let's go Giants!

If I lived in New England or New York I would be excited too, but pardon the rest of us for not being revved up about a SB that is a continuation of the tiresome New York-Boston rivalry that already has been beaten to death with all the Red Sox-Yankees hype

I usually focus on college basketball (Duke-North Carolina - now that is a classic rivalry) after the SB but will get a head start this year

I don't like Eli because of his draft day hissy fit, and I don't care for Nopraxico. Plus I was rooting for Brett so this matchup sucks.

I have to hold my nose and root for the G-men because I don't want the Patriots* to finish undefeated. And I dislike Bellycheat, Baby Daddy Brady, and roided up cheap shot artist Rodney Harrison a lot more than Eli or Plex.

It's like Kerry vs. Bush, except there's no Libertarian to vote for.

01-20-2008, 10:36 PM
I am in all honesty NOT watching it.

The crack on the Super Bowl is that its never good as the championship games and this is no exception.

I am a ridiculously big Brett Favre fan, and today's lose is a great **** you, Ryan, to end the season.

Don't give a damn about Eli, Don't give a damn about Brady, don't really care about this game. Maybe my absence will assist some obscure group that is boycotting the NFL for going so easy on the Cheatriots.

A good friend of mine lost her father a few weeks ago, as well. He was probably the biggest Giants fan I've ever seen, so I'm happy for that, but otherwise... who gives a damn.

I'm sick of watching the Patriots play. Going into the playoffs I was excited to see how they would fair going against three great teams, but I couldn't get that, I guess.

Beat a 5th seed, a 4th seed, and another 5th seed... Yippee...

All of those teams, by the way, who barely eked out a win the week before.

Bah. Whatever. Give me '08.

EDIT: Sorry, Chargers are a third seed.

Well you better hide your heart, your loving heart

A broken heart ....that is probably what will happen for those who hate the Pats.

However, part of being a sports fan for me is believing that the impossible will happen. So, I will watch the game and root for Eli. Five minutes after the game, win or lose, I won't like the Giants or Eli again. But for those three hours (hope) it will be fun. For those who won't watch because the Pats will probably win, more power to ya. But for me, I'm going to hope for a good (albiet short) ride on the Eli/Giants band wagon.

Eli's comming.

I can't believe I'll be rooting for the Giants in the Super Bowl - but I am. The Giants gave the Pats a good scare a few weeks ago, and I'm hoping they can do it again and BEAT THEM - that would rock! :jammin:

I saw Pam Oliver talking to Plax after the game last night. I couldn't help but feel glad for him - he seemed overcome by emotion, humbled and tearful. Good for him - I hope he has the game of his life in the Super Bowl.

Don't know if I'm going to watch the game yet. It may be interesting watching the Pats take the Giants lightly like they did the Chargers and lose in the 4Q. I can't stand the Giants and their whiney simp of a coach, but I dislike the Cheats* more and whether I actually tune in or not, I'm going to be pulling for the Giants.

okay, so obviously i'm not a big poster on here, but I can't stand the fact that we're going to have to live through a 2 week circle jerk about how great the Patriots are. The NFL swept the cheating scandal under the rug, and I think it's now up to Giants fans and other Super Bowl attendees to remind everyone how the Patriots got here. Everyone at the Super Bowl needs to chant "CHEATERS"...preferably every time the Pats have the ball. Signs with asterisks may not make it on camera, and plus, this will just have a better effect, hopefully on the cheaters themselves. Has anyone heard any talk of a plan like this yet?

Anyone visit the Giants' message boards to plant this seed of information? (or see if they already plan on doing this?) I figure the two cities hate each other enough, I would hope they plan to do something like this.

Although it should be noted that the NFCCG dominated (http://www.zap2it.com/tv/ratings/zap-ratings012008,0,7959675.story) the ratings Sunday night putting up a huge number for Fox.

Are you serious? What ratings have been down on FOX? Yes CBs lucked out a bit this year because they had the cheaters going for the record, but FOX has had a great sports year ratings wise. The World Series was up over the last few seasons. NASCAR was flat but not down over previous years. And the NFC championship game you mentioned wasn't just pretty huge, it was the most watched Non- Super Bowl show of any kind in years. For some percpective on those numbers for that Game, the NFCCG garnered an average of 48 million viewers, while the biggest show by far on TV, American Idol, premiered at 34 million. So the NFC championship game does 14 million more viewers than the biggest show on TV.

I try to ignore the hype myself, Heck, I ignored most of the pregame when our Steelers were in the Super Bowl. That said, if this game is close in the second half the ratings will be huge and approach 100 million viewers. If the game is a blowout then all bets are off. I hate the Pats as much as most here but it is hard to deny that a matchup of - undefeated team vs largest market team, who took the undefeated team to the wire a few weeks back -- is the NFL's ratings dream. So I might add are our Steelers who played in the second highest rated program in the last ten years.

Well, I agree that FOX has no business doing college football. However, the ratings were not that bad considering the match-up. The championship game was still one of the highest rated shows of that week (particularly in young viewers).


The easiest solution is that Disney stop being so cheap and buy the BCS package (or whatever replaces it) at puts it on ESPN/ABC where it belongs.

The BCS ratings were at their lowest since the current format began. Part of that is presentation and part of that is lack of the big name teams (Texas, Notre Dame, Michigan, etc)

I'd rather see the BCS games back on NBC where they were before ESPN came along.

Oh now that's just not true. I live in New England and the only thing I'm excited about this year is the commercials. I'm gonna root like hell against the Patriots (if I hear one more person say 'Patriots Dynasty', well, don't be surprised to see an article about an elementary school teacher who went on a murderous rampage on CNN) but there's just no real reason for me to care unless the Giants manage to pull off a win.

Now the person I truly feel for is my poor sister; the poor woman lives in Boston, so she gets to hear it 24/7. On top of that, we have Cheater fans in the family. It's really difficult to have a Patriots fan grandma who talks trash, because you really can't respond to that in a way that won't get you in biiiiiig trouble.

sorry. no love.

i agree the sb will be one of the highest rated. but then again, just about every sb picks up a bit more viewers than the previous ones.

i dont see beating the patriots next year as being any sweeter whether they win or lose. we wont get a ring and they wont print up any tee shirts or hats.

i do agree that the pats w/ 2 weeks to prepare are dangerous. i guess we can hope the idle time hurts them.

if theres any psychological edge i can see the giants drawing on is this-

the giants have been playing their best the past few weeks and they KNOW they will have to play their best in all 3 phases to win.

the patriots, on the other hand, have been playing some of their worst ball of the year, yet they KNOW if one aspect of their team falters, the other 2 teams will pick it up. for instance, last week the league mvp and record setter sucked and the defense and running game picked up the slack. the patriots know they DONT have to play their best game. they are ripe to be caught napping while they all expect the other teammates to carry the load.

I dunno, Grogan - don't take the Giants so lightly. They came the closest to ruining the Cheats* perfect regular season and are going to have the same amount of time to prepare for the big game. The Giants peaked at just the right time - seems to me the Pats* have been sliding a bit since Week 12 or so.

With that said . . .

No love to be given from me! Sorry, but once they flat out got caught cheating, the 07 season went.....VOID! and everything before that now has a big ?.........which honestly they probably didn't need to do, in my eyes they've ruined their own reputation and have went from the "new Americas team" to a bunch of cheating, dirty ass scumbags*!

Well, the guy has a point. The ratings will be high. OJ's trial was widely watched, and we all know he was guilty. Entertainment Tonight has a large viewing audience. Jerry Springer was huge for awhile. The American viewing public has an insatiable lust for trailer park drama, and the Pats of '07-'08 are the mother of all trailer park drama. If they win the Lombardi Trophy this year, as a fitting tribute to the Klass (sic) of the Cheats, it should be constructed of Velveeta cheese and corn dogs.

okay, so obviously i'm not a big poster on here, but I can't stand the fact that we're going to have to live through a 2 week circle jerk about how great the Patriots are. The NFL swept the cheating scandal under the rug, and I think it's now up to Giants fans and other Super Bowl attendees to remind everyone how the Patriots got here. Everyone at the Super Bowl needs to chant "CHEATERS"...preferably every time the Pats have the ball. Signs with asterisks may not make it on camera, and plus, this will just have a better effect, hopefully on the cheaters themselves. Has anyone heard any talk of a plan like this yet?

Anyone visit the Giants' message boards to plant this seed of information? (or see if they already plan on doing this?) I figure the two cities hate each other enough, I would hope they plan to do something like this.

Here's an idea--coordinated effort by groups of NY fans sitting close together. Every fan brings a blue Giants shirt and a white Giants shirt to the game. Then they coordinate with other fans in their section to form white asterisks on a blue background or blue asterisks on a white background.

I'm an visual person, so i would need to see what you mean, Godfather!
But, doing anything against the PATS will be cool, I like the "cheater" chant, HOMETOWNED!

No, I won't be. And I mean that. I'd rather lay on a bed of nails topped with broken glass than watch another Patriots* game. I will find something else productive to do with my time, like sleeping or watching the paint dry on my wall.

While I may not be doing anything quite as productive as X-Terminiator :smile:... I know I won't be watching the SB this year. No way in hell I want to whiteness that lousy Pats* team make history* if they should happen to win....

I'll be with my family doing something fun, rather than watching a game where I am hoping and hoping those a-holes don't win. I just can't stand the thought of seeing butt-chin Brady holding that trophy..... :banging:

I have to say that I can`t wait for the SB.
I started following NFL way back in oh Nov07,and just as I start to get a(very) basic understanding of the game it`s the off-season:dang:
So just to see a game is something to relish....I`m literally counting the hours to kick-off.

Lol - If you stick with the sport for a few season you will really start to enjoy it more... When I first started watching I was just interested a little bit then after about two seasons I know like 90% of the players in the league (Back ups and everything), all the rules, the rule changes season to season, trades, draft, etc...

Hi ShutDown24....I`m basically an NFL embryo but I`ve become completely obsessed with the NFL ,particularly the Steelers of course.You`re right,the more I erm,cough,understand the more enjoyable it becomes.
It`s just so frustrating,perhaps I`m trying to run before I can walk so to speak.
Up until recently soccer has always been my sport and I have something of a geek like knowledge of the game,not just of the UK but on a worldwide level.
Here in NFL land I`m at the back of the class. :smile:

That sounds like a pretty sweet idea, too.

Unfortunately, I haven't been approved to join the Giants board that I signed up for to post my idea....I guess they anticipate a lot of trolls signing up at this point in time.
