Eli and Peyton had a chance to make history this year, not only facing each other in the Supebowl but doing it in their hometown.
Peyton is well on his way to New Orleans but Eli and the GMEN have come up short for not apparant reason other than they didn't want it bad enough this year.
After watching them dismantle the Eagles, granted a bad team only goes to show that they had the talent to make it to the next round but for some reason expected it to be handed to them, like all of a sudden some light would turn on and everything would be okay.
Is it the coach's fault, I really think that they did not have the team prepared for either Washington or Atlanta but the overall intensity by the players was also lacking.
It was nice to see yesterday that they didn't open up the 1st drive with the same pass that had led to ints in the previous games, yes we all know Gilbride is predictable but Eli did not perform well in either of those games.
The defense, what can be said, it's basically the need of some good quality linebackers who can tackle, if they had that maybe the line could have been able to apply the pressure they are capable of, but playing against a team on 3rd and short or not reaching 3rd down does not play to their strentgh.
So, History could have been made, maybe next year the GMEN will be the 1st Home Team to host a Superbowl and come away with a Victory, until then, coulda, woulda.

Getting to the playoffs next year would be fun to watch. Winning at Metlife would be amazing.

yesterdays win over the Eagles was really a negative win, we didn't make the playoffs and we moved down in the draft position, so all we can take out of the win is the fact that we beat the Eagles if that means anything...

At the time we were still not eliminated... the Bears/Lions game had gone down to the wire, and ended after our game.
