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.

Nice fall-back you got there. Can't just man-up, but you have to say they are meant to lose and MIGHT win.

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.
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).
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.
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.
Apparently it wasn't.
Not only is it easy, it's smart.
It's easy to pick a team that's 18-0

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.

But that show wasn't too great. It was good, but nothing like last year's or the year before's.
Man, I miss when MTV did the halftime show.
