  • 1990 NFC Championship vs. 2011 NFC Championship....

    Both games were great, well-played, smash-mouth defensive battles. BUT which game do you think was better? Which game was better played?; which one was more exciting; and which one was your favorite.

    I've thought about this, and I give a very slight edge to the 1990 NFCCG. Only because of the Marshall hit on Montana, and Sumerall call of "There Will Be No 3-Peat!" But 2011 awesome too.

    What do you guys think?

    there were big plays in both games but im with you on the 90 game being my favorite!




    both games were won on turnoves by the 9ers but the 90 game also had the Gary Reasons fake punt run; the Marshall hit; theEric Howard hit on Roger Craig and the LT recovered fumble from that hit!




    also noteworthy for me in the 90 game was Matt Bahrs 5 field goals to win 15-12!

      Have to go with 1990 for the reasons listed above, but also the quality of the respective teams.

      And not only did the Giants prevent the 3-peat, but did it with a back-up QB and RB.

        I was nervous as heck before that last FG. Bahr had missed the previous one from a closer distance and I afraid he would miss it.

            well the 1990 championship game was a party for us from the word go and whilewe Giants fans will refer to it as a classic ... nobody else would




            whereas the SF game was a true classic ... in fact the only thing that probably diminishes the level of classic it was ... is that people were/are still not sold on Alex Smith and we were only 9-7 (well 11-7)




            and i know i was in agony for a good portion of the game ... it wasn't until the OT kick was on its way that i could truly celebrate

                I was only two years old for the 1990 game. So I only really remember last year's game. It's definitely one of the most epic games I've witnessed though...

                I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                  The 1990 NFCCG was one of my favorite Giants games of all time . . . . ranks right after the SB victories as far as I am concerned.




                  2011 was great too, but just a tick below 1990's game . . . . . .

                    Very good points.




                    I think I'll need a few years before I can judge either way....I'm still stoked about last year.

                      The 2011 game was a 2-2.5 spread -- after deducting the 3 points for HFA, that meant that the Giants were viewed as the better team on a neutral field.

                      In 1990, the Giants were facing a dynastic 49ers team led by HOFer Joe Montana with a backup QB, and a game they were not supposed to win. It was a nail biter from start to finish and had so many game turning plays. Until SBXXV and SBXLII, the 1990 NFC Championship game was the biggest post season upset pulled off by the Giants.

                      It was exhilarating to watch the Giants beat the Niners in 1990 because they had three-peat shirts printed up in SF. 2011 was more like a relief because I actually expected a blow out.

                          On an execution point of view and quality of game, I give the edge to 2011. Both teams played stellar defense- Giants allowed just 1 3rd down conversion in the game and that 1 was at the end of regulation.

                          But 1990 was the greater upset.

                            1990 Game. cmon, its was an old Giants team going into the Dynasty's house with a backup QB and coming out on top. the Craig fumble was nice, but the Giants made a lot of plays, including ending the GOAT's 49er career. plus, there were a bunch of HOF players on both teams.

                            2011, eh, the kid fumbling twice gave the game away. the Manningham TD was great, but otherwise the game was just about Eli getting belted every play and not making bad play, the 49ers playing turtle offense. the was a cool elemental factor, and there was the revenge ploy with avenging the Botched Snap with Williams Wipe, and averting Botched Snap II with Weatherford's great hold. i think the game came down to the Giants not ****ing up, with the 49ers making the critical, necessary **** up.

                              I'd say the context of the 49ers being 2 wins away from a 3-peat and the drama of us being on our backup QB makes it the better story.
