I just watched SB 42 again....... Loved it...... again.

The sports world, outside of patsieville, owes the Giants bigtime. Not only for sparing us the endless ball licking over the 19-0 season that we would no doubt have been subjected to until the end of time, but showing everyone the blue print on how to beat them.

It seems the Golden Boy is just like everyone else if you hit him in the mouth and don't give him all day to stand around back there.... Imagine that.

I love the line from Strahan quoting Mike Tyson....."Everyones got a plan till they get hit in the mouth"

You earned it, and you now get to savor it. Rub their faces in their 18-1 diaper, and tell them it's not nice to poop themselves in the clutch!
Yeah, the Steelers game was extremely boring. I listened to the first half of the game while driving home from Kittanning (sp?) (stupid military assignment) wearing my Browns jersey. (The guys at Kittanning didn't know what to think, wasn't sure if I was insane or really tough and left it at that. I thought, thank heavens, because I couldn't take half of the guys who were upset in a one on one, let along all 10 of them at once lol).

Nearly fell asleep at the wheel a couple of times. Went to my buddies house (he's a Dolphins fan who was also raised in WV, so he semi-likes the Steelers) and he hated that game. Not because the Steelers won (which he loved to rub in my face) but with how slow it seemed.

Are you worried about what other fans say? Your team won the game, the Patr*ts lost.

No one gets handed the Superbowl. The Seahawks could have won if they played better... the Patr*ts could have won if they played better............ boo hoo.

I thought you just had to love the Celtics, Patriots, and Cowboys, and hate Kobe Bryant except for when it's not popular to hate him*. ESPN is just so perfect for band wagoneers!

*also, you have to predict the Browns** to win the AFC and the NFC Championship, unless they don't, in which case you have to tell everyone you knew they wouldn't
**replace Browns with Saints, Ravens, Panthers, etc depending on the year

Yea we were really in the same situation you Giants are in now.

We were a wild card team, who had tons of away wins and won a Superbowl no one thought we'd win.

If you're hearing that I'm willing to bet it's coming from one of the following fan bases:

-New England
-Jets
-Eagles
-Cowboys
-Redskins
*

*maybe Packers, but I doubt it.

Which is it?

...and don't worry, the NY Giants earned that victory and each one on the way there. They should have won the game in week 17 too.

Exactly...... A push off is illegal...Plain and simple
