I never said that "Bad quoter"

My bad. I hadn't realized that I deleted Viper's name, although the number of lines should indicate that you didn't say that.

Also, where's the roster update? Or does it come every 2 weeks now?

Nice fall-back you got there. Can't just man-up, but you have to say they are meant to lose and MIGHT win.
I'm MANNING up (lolpun). But really, what I was saying that I'm happy they beat all odds to make it to the Super Bowl, and since they're 12 point underdogs, they should have lost. But they pulled off one of the greatest upsets in NFL history, if not sports.

That was not the greastest upset in all of the NFL, just so you know. Not even the greatest upset in the SB. They were 12 point underdogs, not 20. The Pats were 14 point underdogs when they beat the Rams and that probably wasn't even the greatest upset in the SB.

Now Eli's better, and so is the team.
But the Pats are better at adjusting and I don't forsee Eli, as good as he has BEEN, having a great game today. Not going ot happen.
Apparently, 2 weeks wasn't enough to adjust. And although Eli didn't have a spectacular game, he did do pretty damn good with 250 yards, 58% completion, 2 TDs when they counted, and 1/2 INT (Steve Smith should have had that ball).

Yeah, he should have had it. That was definitely one of those balls you can't blame on th eQB.

But then again, Samuel should have had that ball on the final drive and Merriwether, too.

Who would have the right to trademark the term 19-0? And since when can you trademark a record? And what happened to your "Giants are overconfident because they planned a parade in advance" argument?

It happens all the time. Just like when the rush on the year 2000 went on back in the mid to late 90's. But you're probably too young to remember that.

So, to explain success the Giant's star who said this decided he should throw his other teammates (on ex) under the bus? Wow. The Giants really don't have any tact and know when to shut their moths do they?
That's not the only reason he's been better; he's had more confidence and he's not trying to be amazing on every play. Eli is trying to not turn the ball over, and not go for the 484160846854 yard pass every time.

But that isn't what he said...

Coughlin needs tighter reins.
And what happened when Coughlin had the reins tight? He got criticized. The past 3 years he was too tight with his players, and now that they win a championship with the fewest penalties in team history, you're saying the reins are too loose.

I didn't realize I criticized him before... Oh, yeah. I didn't.

Still smart going with the odds. Pats Line played like ass. The loss falls mostly on them. There were plays they were just getting run by. No moves put on, nothing. That didn't happen all year and they allowed it in the biggest game?

Despite the fact that this was actually an extremely shitty game overall. I mean, come on. 3-0; 7-3; 7-3 for quarters? It was like watching grass grow. If I didn't have interest in the game I definitely would have not paid much attention to it until the 4th quarter.

I don't really care about the point spread; to go to a Super Bowl with a 4th year quarterback who had been previously known to get skittish, against one of the greatest teams in history that never scored under 20 points this season and set roughly 10 records, and win is a huge upset.

Plus, the team that lost was trying to go 19-0.

But then again, Samuel should have had that ball on the final drive and Merriwether, too.

1 for 1. Although it was ironic that the last INT that Manning threw was to Hobbs, the guy who "picked off" Manning.

Not you, but reporters, analysts, and even teammates did.

I saw a couple of passes Brady threw that he would normally make, end up on the sideline. Plus, even when the Giants weren't in Brady's face, Tom was still getting scared that they might be in any second.

But you could also say that the running game never really developed, and rather than throwing little out routes and letting the receivers run during the final 30 seconds, they went for the huge completion. And the 4th down attempt also hurt them too.

Umm... Pats 1st Super Bowl win was with a QB who didn't even start for one whole season and didn't have much experience.

AND they were 14 pt underdogs going against "the greatest show on turf."

THat alone was a greater upset than the one on Sunday

Plus, the team that lost was trying to go 19-0.

Which has never been done. The Pats had WAY more pressure to win then the Giants did.

I'll give you that. But with the amount of criticism and hate shown towards Eli for the last 2 years does make it a little closer.

AND they were 14 pt underdogs going against "the greatest show on turf."

Oh, so your Patriots record points, TD passes, TD catches and 18-0 (prior to the Super Bowl) meant nothing? And one of the most offensively talented teams with one of the most prolific quarterbacks in history and easily 4, maybe 5 great ball catchers sucked?

It must have been a walk in the park for the originally 14 point underdog Giants to beat the Patriots.

Plus, the team that lost was trying to go 19-0.
Which has never been done. The Pats had WAY more pressure to win then the Giants did.

What about the previous 18 games? Actually, I'll say the previous 8 games, since they didn't really feel pressured for the first 10. And what about the previous team to go undefeated, the '72 Dolphins; they weren't feeling any pressure when they reached the Super Bowl?

As kickers say: "the only pressure on you, is the pressure that you put on yourself".

1 for 1. Although it was ironic that the last INT that Manning threw was to Hobbs, the guy who "picked off" Manning.
?

Ellis Hobbs picked off Manning in week 17. Eli hadn't thrown an interception since then. But it was Hobbs who picked off Eli in the Super Bowl. I put "picked off" is quotes because it shouldn't really count against Eli.

Possible. I've seen lots of stolen flashes in the past, and if they steal something that isn't well-known (that Pokemon flash isn't THAT popular, lol), they can sometimes get away with it.

Hello there, civilian. I am sorry to say that you don't meet the entry requirements for the Barracks. To join the EGB, you have to be of Private rank or higher (2500+ B/P).

If you reach Security Guard rank (400 B/P), you can apply to the Newgrounds Police Headquarters.

After this long absence of 2 days without internet connection, I'm back! I still don't know why I didn't have internet connection, I think there were some problems with the company that provides the connection. Speaking of which, any AOL users around?

Funny thing that in this meantime of 2 days, some interesting things happened. 2 new members in one week, the Giants won the Super Bowl (damn ESPN, they didn't show the game here), the Barracks now have a banner, Carnival ended... Although Carnival here was unusual, since the police started fighting with some of the party groups on the streets. That's very weird, it never happened before.

This is also my last week of vacations. Next Monday the monotonous routine will be back... waking up at 6:00 AM, going to school, napping in the class ( =D ), coming back home, sleep a little more...

I hope this school year is better than last one!

I'm gonna have to agree with Coop, I'm one of the biggest Devils fans out there. I'm just hardcore for my New Jersey team, I don't care, the Devils are my boys. They're gonna bring back the Stanley Cup this year so that New Jersey can get some recognition. Afterall, we ARE the home for the Giants and the Jets, and it doesn't matter what you New Yorkers think, they're in our state.

I remember some of my all-day B/P runs...when you've just watched 100 flashes in a row and only three or four were good, twenty or so were decent, and the rest ranged from "youthful attempt" to "utter shit"...on those days, it was the badge that got me through the stick flashes and the one-frame stuff and the big bags...
