    I'm still not agreeing with you because it's still a stupid comment for him to make. To be the better team you have to beat them when it matters most. They didn't. Giants were absolutely the better team.

    They talked up all offseason about how the giants didn't deserve to beat them. Then the giants pounded them again. They need to shut up about it. They lost twice and sound like babies

        They did? I never saw any of that. Do you have a link where a Niner says that the Giants didn't deserve that win?

        But we are talking about these specific comments made by Frank Gore. To me, (even by the standards you described a few posts ago) they were no big deal.
        And to your point about this season. They are in the SB and we didn't make the playoffs. They went into Atlanta and beat them when we lost 34-0 to the same team.
        You know how these things go. Team A beat's team B. Team C beats team A and team B beats team C. Its the NFL.
        We won the championship game last season and deserved the win. I don't see anything that Gore is saying that disputes that. He just believed that they were a better team. And should have won the game if they "finished".
        Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

          Isnt that it in a nutshell? The better team DOES finish.

          Gore (and you to some extent) is equating a better regular season record with being a better team during a post season matchup.

            And now Kyle Williams is mouthing off that the giants should have been investigated for saying they wanted to hit him. What a bunch of crybabies.

              Again...that's fine. I don't disagree at all.
              BUT
              It doesn't bother me that a player on the losing team thinks otherwise. Its just an expression of frustration. He's not attacking our team or the legitimacy of our championship.
              Its a pure knee jerk reaction for Giants fans to get all huffy over comments like this. Its as predictable as the sunrise. Wouldn't it be refreshing to have some posters not react like a bunch of Pavlovian dogs? And actually take a breath and understand the context of the comments.

              I guess I'm just a naive dreamer. But I happen to think that Giants fans are a cut above.

                Giants and 49ers. Two exceptional teams, no matter what, but, according to recent history, NY Giants are the better team. If 9ers can prove different, bring it! Until then, let's go Big Bl....er...Go Ravens!

                  No..We were the better team last season. They are in the SB and we didn't make the playoffs.
                  This year..they are better.

                    It's not knee-jerk. By him saying they were (meaning 2011-2012 season specifically) the better team, they're saying that the Giants had no business being in the Super Bowl to begin with.

                    On the other hand I can easily agree they are the better team this season... however, last year, WE were the better team. Not them.

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

                      That's not what it means at all. That is a huge leap from those comments.
                      Saying that you think you're a better team doesn't it any way suggest that the opponent who beat you didn't deserve the win.

                      If you choose to interpret those comments in that way, there is no reasoning with you.

                        49ers' Kyle WIliams "Shocked" NFL Didn't Investigate Giants After NFC Championship

                        http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/30/...-championship/

                        Excerpt: "The 2011-2012 season has already been written in the history books. The New York Giants reigned as world champions, and did so by first defeating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game and then the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.

                        2012-2013 brought about a new season, and both the Giants and Patriots had let go of the previous year. However, despite being in Super Bowl XLVII, the 49ers have not.

                        Since arriving in New Orleans earlier this week, they've done more talking about Big Blue than they have the Baltimore Ravens. And admittedly, a large part of that has to do with the questions they're asked by the hoards of media, but they've clung to that 20-17 overtime loss since the very moment it happened. Even after signing Mario Manningham and Brandon Jacobs in free agency, the team refused to acknowledge or discuss that game.

                        Already this week Manningham and running back Frank Gore have talked about the Giants and last season. Gore expressed an incredible amount of bitterness, and that trend continued on Wednesday when the media met with wide receiver Kyle Williams.

                        Williams, as you might remember, fumbled twice in the NFC Championship game – his second leading to the game-winning field goal in overtime. Following the contest, Williams received death threats from 49ers fans, and it was later revealed that the Giants may have been targeting his head as he had a history of recent concussions.

                        Looking back on it now -a moment Williams considered one of the worst in his professional career- he remains "shocked" the NFL didn't investigate the Giants for what he considered equally as bad as the New Orleans Saints' bounty program.

                        "The only thing that was crazy to me was that nothing came of it. That was the only thing. Because I fully expected it to because of what just had happened with the Saints," Williams said. "When that came out I was like, ‘Oh, OK there’ll be the same type of thing.’ But there was nothing. I don’t know if that was because (the Giants) won it, or if it just wasn’t a big deal. But I just thought it would be exactly the same type of thing." Read more...

                            this is just making me want to root for the ravens more to be completely honest...
