Im not sure how they do math in your country,

But if 08 is your starting point....

08 = 0
09 = 1
10 = 2
11 = 3
12 = 4

End of this debate if you use whole seasons its 2 in 5 seasons 07-08 and 11-12. 07-08,08-09, 09-10,10-11,11-12. If you look at it from the standpoint from when the superbowls were played then its 4 years. Feb 3 2008-Feb 5 2012, 4 years and 2 days.

We have our first ring in 4 years and our second ring in 5 years. If the pattern holds up, we'll win again in 2016 for our third ring in 9 years. I'm hoping that we increase the pace, however. I'd love to do it in 2013 for our third ring in 6 years. Is it okay to be greedy?

For some reason my whole post did not show up it should be there now. If you go by whole seasons its 2 in 5 years Giants, Steelers, Saints, Packers, Giants but if you look at the dates of the superbowls (02/03/08-02/05/12 4 year 2 day range) its a 4 year difference because so the right answer is 2 superbowls in 5 seasons or we won 2 superbowl games within a 4 year span

yeah ; 4 fiscal years with rings for bookends but i think you are suppose to include the entire season.

10 = 2

Hypothetically, winning 2 out of 3 would be:

win
lose
win

Therefore 2 out of 4 would be:
win,
lose
lose
win.

Thus, winning 2 out of 5 would be:
win
lose
lose
lose
win
(what the Giants did).

Technically, the SB wins were almost exactly 4 years apart but it's more logical to say 2nd in 5 years... or more accurately 5 seasons, but that sounds weird, so we say 2nd in 5 years.

yeah , think about it jags , that's exactly what i'm talking about.....2 rings , 5 seasons.

2007 season SB in feb. 2008 = 1 ring
2008 season SB in feb. 2009 = 0 ring
2009 season SB in feb. 2010 = 0 ring
2010 season SB in feb. 2011 = 0 ring

Because if you win back to back Superbowls, you wouldn't say "We won 2 Superbowls in one year." That would be silly.

I haven't seen the word "season' once (except for a few genuises on this board). look at the title of the thread.. YEAR. SIMPLE: answer this: what YEAR was it 4 YEARS AGO? .. (in the absence of intelligence, I'll answer for you: 2008) they are talking about calender years, not seasons. (please tell me debating calendar years on this is a joke)

smh at this.* how hard is this to understand , 07 SB 08 no superbowl 09 no superbowl 10 no superbowl 11 superbowl.* 2 sb's in 5 seasons.


op needs to change years to seasons and he is gtg


Pfft, cheater

If he meant seasons he would have wrote seasons :)

didn't think i would have to break it down scientifically or i would have.

i was just wondering if it bugged any one else.
i didn't realize there are actually people this brain-dead on these forums.

i appreciate and welcome the wisecracks and fun being poked at me.....that's great,
but there are those on here who really do think that it's 4 "seasons" ; if you will.
it's amazing.

Riiiiiight..... You do realize just because you change the thread title to "seasons" from "years" it doesn't change the title in the responses right?

LOL - you even changed it the message body - too bad it was quoted so much ....nice try

i've heard and read it too many times today that the Giants have their second ring in 4 seasons.
its 5 seasons

feb. '08 = 1 ring
feb. '09 = no ring
feb. '10 = no ring
feb. '11 = no ring
feb. '12 = 1 ring

thanx for playing and here's a copy of the home game.Scary people do not know how to add. Well not really surprised nowadays

i attribute this to smartphones and google.
nobody has to think anymore.just google yourself an answer. why think when you can just text ?

i knew this was coming though , way back when the cash registers at McDonalds changed from numbers to pictures.......i felt that armagheddon would soon be upon us.

If the giants go on a 7:55 td drive, and then force a fumble on the kickoff for a td 5 seconds later..

Is it 2tds scored in 5 seconds or is it 2 tds scored in 8 minutes?
Depends on how you measure time between each touchdown scored. In game time, say you start the drive with 8:36 to go in the 4th down 28-16, and you pursue on a 7:55 drive resulting in a TD which will leave :41 to go in the 4th. Then kick the ball off, and depending on how long the return kick is, on average it takes 3.24 sec from the time he receives the ball and passes the plane to the time, lets say Greg Jones, forces the fumble at the 23 yard line and lets say Devin Thomas picks up the ball. There would be :37 sec left at the moment DT picks up the ball. On avg, it would take the defender/special teamer to scoop up the ball and begin acceleration at .56 sec. Depending on where DT picks up the ball, lets say he scoops it at the 22 yard line and begins acceleration at the 20 yard line. Basing on DT's 40 time, which is 4.40, DT would be able to scoop the ball at the 21 and begin acceleration at the 20 yard line, it would take DT 2.86 sec to scoop and score from the 21 yard line. Between the 2 Touchdowns scored, it would take approximately 6.10 seconds leaving :35 left on the clock. In game time, of course. In real time, it is a whole other problem, consisting of commercial time, averaging :30 sec a piece, setting up the kick off teams, whether or not it is windy or not which could result in the ball tipping, etc, etc. To answer your question: Who cares? To answer your question with actual mathematical calculations, 6.10 secs, averaging out to 6 seconds of game time.

5 seasons but 4 years from Feb. 08 to Feb. 12.

That's because the first ring came at the very end of a season.
