btw, wellington mara's widow just berated terry bradshaw on live tv (off-mic, but still audible to those watching on tv), just as he was about to interview victor cruz. classic!
Just because he picked the Giants?

Great game in the NFC championship... in the rain no less. The G-Men won tonight because they blinked one less time than the 9ers. Good game good win.

The Pats, on the other hand... should thank their lucky stars that they are going to Indy. The Ravens had the game tied or won... and basically dropped their opportunity. Tom Brady may be determined to win and all that... but they better bring all phases of their game to Indy.

If this game is anything like the last one, it will be an awesome Super Bowl.
Well, I had my money on the Giants.
It was a bit frustrating. All of the false starts were horrible.
The offense looked sloppy, and Eli was getting frustrated.
The Defense did well to contain the Niners.
I think without those two botched returns by the Niners, it would have been another story.

They did it before, and if all cylinders are are clicking, they can do it again, I will have my dough on Archie's boy, Eli, and Big Blue. So I hope they can repeat.

Well... give both teams credit for playing good D and doing what they could in the rain.

I don't know who will win. I do believe that either team can win it and I have no clue on who will be favored. I suppose the nod goes to the Patriots, but based on how the post season has gone for the two... throwing out the Bronco game... it looks like it will be a close game.

I'll hate the Giants forever now, but good close game. Two muffed punt returns seal the game.
Beat the Patriots now.....

the refs were being dbags throughout the game to the giants and they did it when they played they packers too. i don't know what's going on with the nfl and refs but this apparent favoritism better not happen in the super bowl as it's bullcrap and i put money on the giants.

the pats don't even deserve to be in the super bowl. that game was all ravens. ravens lost, patriots did not win. hopefully the giants can beat the cheatriots again and get some heightened security during practice. tha pats defense is too weak to hold back eli and the giants o right now and the giants d is still good enough to hold the pats and overrated tom brady back enough for eli and cruz to tear up the score board. eli will run circles around brady in this super bowl. tom brady is an overrated joke, a product of his cheating coach and his offensive line.

i will be laughing straight to the bank with this one, new england.

The only thing that gives me a glimmer of confidence is that the Giants had to beat much better teams in order to ge to the SB. But of course that in itself is not enough to convince me they'll beat the Pats for a third time. The Patriots stepped up in the post season where it was needed. Granted Baltimore gave that game away, but you can never count out a healthy Tom Brady and you can never bet on a sure thing with the Giants. They've played hot and cold this season and I hope they are firing on all cylinders for this game, they are going to need it. Can't afford any mistakes or turnovers and hopefully this game isn't decided by a bad call from the officials. Giants have been on the receiving end of some awful calls by the officials during their last two games. Pats are usually favored by officials.

The problem is, when people expect the Giants to lose, they seem to play better. Expect them to win, and that's when they lay an egg...
