The "bogus penalty" you claimed seemed stupid agreed, yet what was the tackle out of bounds against the giants on a kick return the patriots never were called for. Remember the patriot accidently tripped over amani toomers foot and the ref called a personal foul??? He didnt see the contact just the fall as the giant bench was screaming for a hit out of bounds, Also no calls on Randy Moss constant pushing off in the end zones? Guess what..the same crew of refs are going to be doing the Super Bowl. Hopefully they will do a better job. In the opening drive Buress caught a bomb from Manning and on the tackle the Patriot had a handful of facemask..no call.

^ Yes, that is pretty classy of the equipment manager to hand him the football after the game winning kick.

i'm a cowboys fan from mass but go giants!i hate the patsies especially wonder boy.i think if the giants are able to run the ball and keep brady off the field and keep it a low scoring game they will win.jacobs will be the key they've got to get 1st downs by running and get eli comfortable.the you lay the boom and throw the ball.

I gotta be realistic in this one. I expect the Pats to win. The Giants are peaking, but the Pats have too much talent. And weather won't be a factor, so the Pats can throw the ball all day. The Giants have had a very good run in the playoffs, but i expect it to end tomorrow.

it's kinda like the red sox-rockies world series, the rockies had won 21 of 22, but the red sox where just a better team.

Weather may be a factor. If it rains they will close the dome and that would be a disadvantage to the Giants. You can up advantage the Patriot receivers will have on a dry field. My personal feeling is Super Bowls should not be played in domes. I can understand why they would choose stadiums that are located in fair weather cities, but whatever the weather may be on the day of the Super Bowl, so be it!

One can argue that the Rockies had so much time off before the WS began that they became rusty. In the case of SB 42, both Giants and Patriots have had equal time off.
