The fact has been shown that the Tyree Throw was unpolished greatness in the making. The ESPN's of the world will never take that angle but with a second Superbowl no more justification is needed. Let it eat at them for all time. The development of Eli was evident in the precision of the throw in double coverage down the sideline to Manningham. It clicked for me immediately that the (the argument)Tyree throw was not the fluke that they tried to say it was and now we have the evidence. Similar situation, same pressure with everything on the line and greater development of more polished Eli Manning. The'07 doubters don't have a leg to stand on after that '12 throw.

Am I alone in defending the Tyree throw? They say Eli threw up a prayer basically with his eyes closed.

Not luck at all. Giants were in complete control.

1. Eli got out of a grasp by Patriots defender. The defender had him by jersey for split second. Any patriot fan talking about blowing whistle is being ridiculous.
2. Eli makes the perfect pass to Tyree that drops in between 3 patriot defenders. If the pass isn't high, Harrison easily knocks the ball away.
3. Tyree makes a great catch.


Luck is good fortune which occurs beyond one's control, without regard to one's will (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_%28philosophy%29), intention (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intention), or desired (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desire_%28philosophy%29) result.

Ok let's be realistic. He wasn't grabbed by any 1 person long enough for the whistle to blow.</P>


However, all Eli saw was a white jersey down field and threw a desperation throw. It was a dangerous throw, but who cares at this point. Whatever you want to call the catch, lucky or one in a million, it was still a catch.</P>


I call it a desperation throw that went exactly where he wanted it and a 1 in a million catch that was made, by a career special teamer, who rose to the occasion in the SB. </P>
