Big blowout on tap Sunday.
I just wanted to repost that for fun.

I've said it all along. There's a reason you don't get arrogant and full of yourself, because NOTHING is ever 100% guaranteed. Like Chris Berman always says, THAT'S WHY THEY PLAY THE GAMES!

Thank you, Giants, for knocking this team off its perch.

Great job by both teams.

It reminded me of what Randy Moss was playing for the Vikings, and he left the field a few seconds before a game ended. I guess he joined the right team after all.

This team has lacked class and professionalism all year long. It would have been a black mark on the NFL if they'd won. As a football fan, I'm so grateful for what the Giants did!

Hahahaha!

The Pats are now one of three NFL teams to finish 18-1. Of those three, they are the only one to have lost the Super Bowl.

Exactly! The SB was supposed to be their coronation. Why did the Giants even bother showing up? It was a done deal. I guess they bought into their own hype, and then they didn't know what to do once the Giants actually showed up to play. This was one team they weren't going to be able to run up the score on.

If ever a team needed to be brought back down to earth, it was this one. I don't know if I could have stomached watching the NFL ever again if the Pats had won, because there would have been no end to the "best ever" talk. Now we know better ... this team was far from the best ever. Great run, yeah, but they couldn't close the deal when it mattered the most.

I love seeing Eli holding up that trophy! I hope everyone in NY will get off his back now! I'm still on Cloud 9! I hope the Pats have stock in Kleenex to dry up all the tears for what might have been!
Last year, I didn't get it when LaDainian Tomlinson said the Patriots had no class. I enjoyed watching the Pats. They were a good, solid team at the top of their game. Then Spygate broke, and it all made sense. Bunker mentality, deflect the blame, and instead of taking the punishment like men, they took it out on the rest of the league by running up the score whenever they could. Remember Belichick saying "What do you want us to do, kick a field goal?" Well, when it's the fourth quarter and you're already up by 30, YEAH. (Look how not trying to FG on fourth down came back to haunt them in the SB.) You don't treat other professional colleauges like that. If you've got the game in the bag, you let off. You run the ball, you kick on fourth down, you might even take out your starters. You DON'T keep lobbing bombs down the field and trying for touchdowns on fourth down. That's what made me sick about this team this year ... as much as knowing they cheated. It was unprofessional and showed a total lack of class and dignity.

I'm serious when I say a Pats victory yesterday would have been a black mark on the league. The Giants' win was probably the most important victory for the game of professional football in the modern era. It kept the integrity of the league intact. I think it's appropriate that this happened in the Goodell era. He's all about law and order, and the rule-breaking Patriots didn't win on his watch.

In the end, cheaters don't win, and winners don't cheat. If you show no class and respect, cheat to win, and think you're unbeatable, it WILL come back to bite you. The Patriots found that out.

And that was what made me hate the Pats even more! And I'm sure I am not the only one who was so sick and tired of this 'we are better than the rest of ya'll' attitude. Like Manning has told Eli, New England is beatable. And Eli had proved it this past Sunday.
