    One of my favorite memories...

    Alright here goes Tines again to kick the Giants into the Super Bowl. The snap is good. Kick on its way. End over end. Does it have the distance? It is...GOOD!!! Lawrence Tines has kicked the Giants into the Super Bowl!!!!

    I appreciate and respect the recent Giants teams that won SB's 42 & 46, but they don't have what the teams of the 80's had and that is an absolute hatred of losing -- their personality really did match that of Parcells. Execution was excellent and they played with a disciplined intensity -- always up for a game and no stupid penalties. The O was very efficient with Simms, Bavaro, Manuel, a great running game and o-line, and just that ferocious D that made it enjoyable to sit back and watch opposing O's knock their heads against and lose. Man, I really miss the 3-4 D.
    That '86 defense was a wrecking ball machine, if memory serves me well 8 or 9 QBS went down againts those guys.

    Pierce splitting 2 (3?) linemen to tackle the RB for a loss on a screen in the SB.

    Romo's pass intercepted in the end-zone to win the game!

    This one for me too.

    Jake Ballard making an athletic grab in traffic and then scoring the winning touchdown against the Patriots. It was a huge win that propelled us into the playoffs and another Super Bowl ring.

    my favorite memory was watching burress catching the game winning pass in sb 42.
    Nothing will ever top that for me since I was there sitting in that end zone. Prior to that, my top memory was being at the NFC Championship with my father in 1986.

    Except for the 2 he missed before the one he finally made, that was my favorite one...
