    The scoreboard tells the tale.
    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

      the "best" team is the Champion.

      rationalize it all you want but that is the way it is.

        Since 2007, the New York Giants have never won a game. At least not if you were to ask their opponents, who all claim they were the "better team" and the Giants either got lucky or some other nonsensical excuse. And that line of thinking continued on Monday as San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore recalled the NFC Championship game from a year ago, claiming the 49ers were the "better team," but just didn't finish.


        "Knowing we were the better team. We didnít finish," Gore said on Monday. "The Giants won the game. It was tough. It was real tough. I had a chance to go to the Pro Bowl and I couldnít even go because I was so hurt. Knowing that we were the better team, but we didnít finish. They won and they moved on.Ē

        The Giants, of course, were the better team a year ago and went on to win Super Bowl XLVI. They were also the better team in week six of this season when they demolished the 49ers 26-3." Read more...
        I laugh at all of these players that say stuff like this after they lose. I also laugh at fans making a ginormous deal out of what he said. Regardless of which team was better or not, I only know what the scoreboard tells me.

            Its tough to lose a game when you had two late turnovers as the difference, especially when one was purely flukish.
            I have no problem with a competitor having a hard time forgetting it. These guys go through a lot to get to where we and the Niners were last season.
            I have no problem with this kind of statement at all.

            You guys are too sensetive.
            That NFCCG was a a very tough, hardnose defensive battle. Neither teams defense was going to allow their team to lose the game.....not on their watch. You knew- at least I did anyway-that the game was going to be decided on a turnover. With the field and weather conditions, and the teams having no margin for error, the players & coaches have to press into there heads to protect the football. That's part of the game too.

            And the 49ers were very ****y too. I think they thought that they would walk right over the Giants. They underestimated them.

              Too sensitive? Maybe people are.

              What seems much, much more likely is that your ridiculous position, designed solely to get the results you have, is 100% without any trace of merit.

              Let's pretend that the second fumble never happened, and that Williams was tackled on that spot: Tell the class the results of every 49 drive in the forth quarter. How many were 3 and outs (hint...it rhymes with "ball but bun")

              Total yards in the second half?
              Passing yards?
              Running yards?

              How about this one: a roughing the passer call against the giants gave the niners more yards than they had passing in the 4th!!

              Don't know what game Gore or you watched, but he one I watched had the Giants D (that you routinely credit and rightfully so) absolutely took complete control of that game in the second half and the niners could do nothing about it.

              But somehow, in Gore's mind (and yours) the niners were A-OK.

              Maybe they were resting?

              Worst.

                this guy is a whiner, the 49ers didn't convert a single 3rd down till garbage time when we were heading for OT, they were NOT the better team that year.
                ^this.....

                And it's not like they blew out the Giants in the reg. season match up either. In fact most of the Giants were hoping they meet them again.

                  well said deli. I don't think we're being too sensitive by simply pointing out Gore's mis-rememberance. After all - this is the GIANTS message board.

                    I'm surprised he's talking about it still. He's got a great chance to get a ring himself.

                      Maybe it was Gore's 12 total yards in the 4th that made him so sure they could score at will.

                      Again...roughing the passer call greater than Gore's output.

                          The three teams in question here all had one thing in common. They were all arrogant. They were up on the mountain thinking their was no way anyone could knock them off seeing they were so far superior then everyone else. An when they were finally knocked off the mountain they had to much pride to admit they were beaten by the better team. So they just made lundry lists of excuses
                          Football has been very, very good to us.
                          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                          4-New York Giants!!!
                          5-NE
                          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                            You can't say this anymore. If you were the better team then that 3-28 shutout I saw never happend?

                            Better team means everyone does their part(including the PR). You lost, therefore you were the lesser team. Get over it.

The playoffs are meant to skim the surface of the league and put the top teams in a bracket. We earned, and deserved that 4-0 sweep all the way through. Yes Patriots had the better record/stats, etc. But if you look at the big picture at the end of the season, the Giants were most definitely the best team in the league and could of beat anyone at that point.
                              Pats won 1 game over a team with a Winning record that season

                                I did not rationalize. Good, better, best. It is arguable. That's the fun of being a fan. Last year we were the champions. And I could not have been happier.
