  • Win Sunday Cleans Slate of Jan '03 Debacle

    This is the Giants biggest non-divisional rivalry, IMO. And if we win Sunday it will erase the biggest meltdown in Giants post-season history.

    Can't wait

    If they got to play Baltimore in SB, they could erase most past playoff demons. Really, the only ones they haven't paid back when it matters are the Eagles and Panthers. Eagles have won a bunch of playoff games in recent history with no retribution. The Panthers had that blowout win after the Giants got in really banged up.

      Jan '03 was personally traumatic for reasons I cannot elaborate as long as this debt goes remains unpaid

          One of the worst days in Giants history. I didn't sleep for a week after that collapse. I think Osi was on that team, anyone else still an active Giant?

            God, especially with Big Mouth Ray Lewis still on the team... I would kill for that.. Ray did anyways.

              No current Giants were on that squad. Diehl and Osi came the next season.

                Better they weren't tainted by the association with the bad memory.

                  One of the worst ever -- made worse by the refs admitting they blew it the following day.

                  What, we can't get a do-over? The Giants can't retroactively win the game?

                    Can't wait[/quote]It was the start of the refs screwing us. Even though it should have never come to that.

                      I was at the movies with hubby and got the score before going and was pumped the Giants were way ahead. All I could think of was coming out of the movie theatre and going home to watch the tape.

                      Of course, when I got home and found out what really happened, I was physically sick. The lasting image of Strahan stomping off the field looking ticked as anything still burns in my brain

                        It should have never had to come down to a last second field goal screw up by a center that was sitting in his couch one week before "forgot his name". Garcia and our horrendous defense and Shockey with his end zone drop is what killed us.

                          Can't wait[/quote]There are no players or coaching staff (that I know of) on this team now that was here then, but that was painful and would redeem the great G-men name!

                            I remember that year so well. I think that was the year Shockey won the game after catching the ball on Brian Dawkins..talking trash to him after what Dawkins did to Ike Hilliard.

                            I'll never forget that loss...NEVER

                              Yeah, I don't feel like it's payback for '03 (although I hated that game). Not to take anything away from the 49ers, but we blew that game. And poor Matt Bryant got run out of Giants-land because of it and it wasn't even his fault. Those Fassell years were so annoying.




                              Payback? Nah. If anything, the 49ers should want payback for how we ended their dreams of a 3-peat twenty years ago -- in an NFC Championship game. Our last few loses to them in the playoffs were wildcard or divisional games.
