Everyone was part of that win for the Giants. Do not downgrade the drive that Eli had to finish the game. Getting away from three defenders, and heaving the ball downfield to David Tyree was an awesome play.

Yes, absolutely, I was amazed that he got out of that pack of Pats. But the fact of the matter is that the Giants defense (especially Tuck and Strahan), put together 4 amazing defensive quarters to set that magnificent ending up. Not taking away anything from Eli at all ... just saying that the defense orchestrated that win and Eli finished it with precision.

i don't believe they are a dynasty now there's another chapter to spygate that goes back to their super bowl years.they are a claseless organization starting with the head coach he has no respect for the nfl or any of the coaches on other teams.what he does at the end of games with the handshake is pitiful and disrespectful he is the thrash of the nfl not the class.

Give Eli and the Giants the chance to "take a knee".
I guess we weren't watching the same game then, because they were all over the field along with the media and some fans.


Trash talking is part of sports and EVERY team does their fair share including the Giants before this game.

I think that i heard it best one announcer said this before the game (sean slasbury?) If the pats dont win tonight they will be the worst 18-1 team in history and lookie lookie what happen.

I do have to admit that is the best superbowl in a LONG time. But just a great great feeling to see the Manning boys go back to back Archie must feel pretty good about now
So if the Raiders win the Super Bowl next year, is your signature gonna say "from Pack fan to Giants fan to Raider fan" ???

B-b-b-bandwagon!

RBK - Perfectville
I'm still kind of irked that more isn't being said about Bellicheck leaving the field before the game was over. If I was a member of the Patriots during this crucially heartbreaking loss, the sight of Bellicheck walking off would depress me even more.

Randy Moss got how much trash piled on him for walking to the tunnels before the game was over in a regular season game? Bellicheck was supposed to be their "leader" (as Tom Brady kept annunciating during Media Week). Talk about classless. You don't leave your team like that no matter what the circumstances are. And especially in some circumstances.

Default Giants Bandwagon???

Here is the definition:

n. a party, cause, movement, etc., that by its mass appeal or strength readily attracts many followers

Yesterday was definitely a party for me and I'll gladly ride this bandwagon (at least until the season starts again)! Anyone want to jump on with me?? Go Giants!

I didn't tape the game, but I seem to recall it this way: the clock ran down to zero, and that's when Belichick ran across the field. Giants players were out there with their helmets off, and even Coughlin came out and he and Belichick hugged, and Belichick congratulated a couple Giants and headed towards the tunnel. Both coaches obviously thought it was over. During this the refs were huddling and then decided to put one second back on the clock...by then BB was at the tunnel and kept going - my guess is he didn't even know they were adding time.
They had to find some players to come back out - I read that Junior Seau had to borrow a helmet to go back on the field - and they even had to find Eli who was over near the stands celebrating. So, please - how is this running off the field? How can you even compare it to what Moss did when he left (while there was still time on the clock)?

Maybe, he could have stayed until they all walked off?

Yes, it was hectic even with that 1 second left, but he left on his own, without anybody else on his team except for an armed escort.

Well one thing I didn't see was any Patriot players congratulate any Giant players. Guess Bill's been giving them pointers.....
