BUT THEY ARE TOO ASHAMED TO CALL THEMSELVES New Jersey Giants which they are.

They do not want to be associated with New Jersey. I find that pathetic. Name all the other NFL teams who moved and changed their name. Think about the Colts continuing to call themselves the Baltimore Colts because they are ashamed to be associated with Indy.

I hope the Pats wipe their pathetic NEW YORK faces all over the ice.

63 - 3 Patriots
The Jets and Giants were grandfathered in. Now when a team moves to New Jersey, they cannot use another state's or city's name, it must be a NJ name. And what does this have to do with anything? Whoop-dee-friggin-doo. Dogging a team's name proves what exactly? Shows your level or maturity.

Who cares if the players have their primary residencies in NJ? First off, how do you know this? East Rutherford is minutes away from NYC. Secondly, who freaking cares? All one metropolitan area... Doesn't bother me. Third, I don't care if they pay NJ taxes... New Jersey gets money, we get less traffic than we would if the stadium was in the City.

Moderator cut: comment

Oh yeah... How can the Pats wipe our New York faces all over the ice in anyway? It's called Arizona.

Yeah! I thought I was going to have a heart attack when Tynes missed that field goal with 4 seconds left in the game (so pissed)... Then came the interception pass by Favre and I thought my head was going to explode due to happiness... Then the winning field goal did it for me. I still wonder if I'm dreaming!

Go Giants! Whoop 'em baby, Whoop 'em!

If you're not Giants fan, why are you here mucking up our thread? Either you're insecure or you're nervous!

Tom Brady has been playing horrible too.
Just a NE fan stuck here in the land of the barbarians trying to spread the good word.

The penalty was bogus and pretty much everyone neutral said so. It was much less of a celebration than the Lambeau Leap or the pseudo-Lambeau Leap Jacobs tried to pull. Last week Jacobs threw the ball at the play clock. The Moss celebration was tame in comparison.

In heavy wind Brady had an off game with 3 picks, against a team that leads the league in forcing turnovers. He had 3 picks against them in the playoffs last year. Peyton Manning had 6 during this year's regular season when he played SD. It's something they do well. One of them was an unlucky bounce off the receiver's hands. Brady still completed 2/3 of his passes and they won. Brady's off and Moss is shut down, and they won.

Don't forget the week before when Brady went 26-28 (92.4%), breaking the postseason record of 22-25 (88%) set by Phil Simms in Super Bowl XXI. The two incompletions were right on the money, the receivers dropped both. Brady was as close to perfect as you get against Jacksonville, made a couple of mistakes against a very good SD pass defense, and won't be that bad in balmy Arizona.

No, I'm an ESPN fanatic. All they've been talking about lately is Tom Brady doing crappy these playoffs along with Eli going to the Super Bowl and Peyton not. Then they sprinkle in some college basketball and hockey for a few minutes.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the REAL Tom Brady! (check the hat)

I really, really hope the Giants win. To have the Manning bros. win back to back would be awesome. Plus, I love seeing Tom Brady pissed off.

Last week they were talking about Brady's near-perfect completion rate and how "zen" he is. If they're talking about crappy in these playoffs they've suddenly forgotten one of the two games. Other than the picks, which SD has a habit of forcing against a lot of good QB's, he didn't even have that crappy of a game against SD either. 22 of 33 with 2 TD passes. Eli's postseason numbers are actually worse in most categories and it's being sold like he's the greatest ever all of a sudden.

I am a die-hard Pats fan, but I *do* like the Giants. Except, of course, for their whiny quarterback.

Eli has yet to "arrive". Actually, I'm not sure if the little cry-baby has actually "arrived" in NY....the "big market" that he wanted to desperately to be in.

Guess we'll see in 12 days....
