I was looking forward to picking up the magazine. I am not sold on the "They must be Giants". The cover is pretty weak with small text "super bowl champions" and the picture could be better. Eli isn't even in a passing motion. I would have preferred Manningham catch on the cover over this one.

Not even close to their 2007 championship cover.

I agree. I saw this and thought it was just another game issue..Almost like it was put together last minute..

Nuts! I was looking forward to buying this week's SI and putting the cover in a frame next to the 2007 cover, but this looks so weak, it's not worth it. Guess I'll have toget my SB XLVI artwork elsewhere.

could have chosen a better cover shot. the interior photography is pretty spectacular. I will still be getting the cover plaqued because I have the other 3 SI SB covers.

Do you buy the magazine and put it in a frame? Or do you buy it off the SI website that has their own special cover and frame?

yea, won't matter to me since I called SI today and they no longer sell the hardcover issue/DVD with a subscription! &gt;=(

25 & 42 are actual mag covers, I had to order the 21 cover reprint from SI. I then take it to a sign shop to have it "perma-plaqued" where it is lacquered to a piece of wood.

It isn't that bad. What are they suppose to use, the picture of Bradshaw trying not to fall into the endzone? lol.

I would've went for a SWEET closeup of the Manningham catching showing his body bent over the sideline with both of his feet still inbounds. Cover is just LAME

BFLO23 - where did you get that AWESOME sig with the Manning bro's sporting porn-staches?

yeah the photo is fine, but "they must be giants"? ... that sounds like an obscure twist on the 90s alternative band, they might be giants or were they late 80s, please tell me im not that old :)

Picked up a newsstand copy today (no address label) and took it to the sign shop.
Here's what the last one looks like
