As a Giants fan, I would have to say the loss to the Ravens...yes, I know it was a blowout, but the game was pretty competitive in the first half, and I was mad at the defensive holding penalty that was called on Keith Hamiliton (a defenisve tackle, mind you. Yes, you read that right, DT!!) that wiped out a Jessie Armstead defensive TD for the Giants. Now, the way the Ravens crushed the Giants, Im not going to say the Giants would have won, of course not. But that negated defensive TD might have changed the complexion of the game in the early going.

For me it was when the pats blew the perfect season. I was in Iraq at the time. Had to stay up till 3am after patroling all day then for them to lose big kick in the balls. Worst part I was deployed with all New York guys so had to listen to 18 and 1 for months. ( Side note hate how New Yorkers switch between Gmen and Jets as who their team is bunch of frauds)

Default Niners vs Ravens - last game of Ray Lewis

When the Niners played the Ravens a couple of years ago. I had joked earlier in the season that Jim Harbaugh could beat everybody but his brother, and it turned out that he faced his brother in that game again. He lost to him before, and he couldn't get those last few yards to finally beat him. I was disgusted, and significantly downgraded Jim Harbaugh after that loss. After that loss, I felt that Jim Harbaugh's limitations, rigidity, and lack of creative imagination would prevent him from winning the SB, and I was right. He will always have a hard time beating the likes of Bill Belichick, John Harbaugh, and Pete Carroll.

Aww man, I so wanted the Giants to win that year because it was the year Fassel said they would make the playoffs and they didn't lose another game after that until the SB

I know it doesnt get a lot of press these days, but I love the press conference where he guaranteed they would make the playoffs!

"Im pushing my chips to the table." <---Something to that effect

LOL

If they had won that SB that would have been the greatest story in NFL history and it sucks they could not win that last game

And since that game, I don't think Tyree has caught another pass in the league. In 2012 if Welker was 5 foot 11 instead of 5 foot 10 and was able to catch that pass that went off his fingertips, the Patriots may have very well won that game. Tough to blame the defense for those 2.

2003.

Panthers take the lead. Kasay shanks the kickoff out of bounds allowing Brady to start the drive from the 40. Vinatieri kicks the winning FG.

Worst Super Bowl ever for a Panthers fan!

Regarding the Steelers/Cardinals game, I remember the group I was watching with could sense that Pittsburgh was going to win on that final drive. They had plenty of time and they had several wins like that during the season. It was still a great game though.
Steelers/Cards game had so many horrible calls! Sheesh..Last years SB was horrible because it was a blow out.
