Yes, so glad the Giants beat the Pats. And I am glad they went for the win rather than settling for OT.

It's about time the officials opened their eyes and called something on the Pats. All night they were missing calls that should have went against the Pats. Great watching Brady lose his composure and throw tantrums on the sideline after his turnovers. I'm going to savor this win all week!

Big win the the Giants.
Is Tom Terrific starting to show that a QB is only as good as his supporting cast? When the Pats were winning championships, they had great teams. Now that the team isn't as strong, Tom Terrific is starting to look like Tom Who?
On that note, many fans love to bash Eli, and he is not without flaws, but this guy was missing his starting RB, starting center and #1 receiver and still outplayed Brady.

I give most of the credit to the Giants defense. Eli played well but he still throws up some very dangerous passes when he's pressured in the pocket. If you're going to throw it out, then throw the damn thing out by a mile not by a narrow margin. That INT in the endzone was carelessness on his part, letting it hang out there like that. I wouldn't write off Brady just yet. The Giants D pressured him and dominated the line. I do think the Pats would have done better if they had gone to the run a little more, but Brady is a stats player and so they will cater to his play calling.

Yeah, the win by the Giants was great, but Im not writing the Patroits off just yet--that would be careless...but that Pats defense still needs to improve.

I dont get that. This defense isnt that young, yet they keep making very fundamental mistakes. The run defense was decent as recent as last year, and now guys are all of a sudden forgetting how to play the run?
Barry Coefield left for the Redskins who was their best DT
