  • Why being a Giants fan is so satisfying

    Tuck said it best. Never count out a Giant, never count out heart.

    Everyone is comparing this team to '07, and rightfully so. Do you guys remember how we weren't even suppose to be in the playoffs? We were the little runts that squeaked in and were about to be one and done... until we weren't. Until the Giants flipped the script and went to Tampa Bay and did their thing. Then they went off to Dallas to face the team that was destined to have a showdown with the Pats in Arizona. And the Giants didn't lay down, they fought for every single yard during every play and won the game.

    Then the Giants went to Green Bay. NO ONE could beat Bret Favre in -20 degree weather in Lambaue... no one but Eli Manning. No one but Michael Strahan, and Plaxico and Tom Coughlin and Brandon Jacobs and the NYG. Then off to Arizona. Nobody gave us a snowballs chance in hell. The Giants were the lamb being led to the slaughter. But then something special happened, something that will go down in history as one of the single greatest sports moments in the history of this game. Eli and Tyree and Plaxico and Strahan pulled out a miracle.

    We heard this story before... The Giants will be nothing without Tiki, without Shockey, without Amani, without Plaxico, without Kevin Boss, without Steve Smith.

    We shouldn't of even played the season. The Giants were suppose to be the bottom-feeders of the NFC-East this year. They were suppose to make way for the "Dream Team" and "America's Team" they were suppose to sit back and watch Michael Vick and Tony Romo put on circus performances while Eli led out a bunch of no-names to get destroyed every week.

    But once again the Giants refused to lay down. Even after a huge slump down the stretch, getting tossed around by the NFC's top teams and with their backs against the ropes, the Giants kept fighting and proved to the Jets they weren't the 2nd rate team in New York.

    And then the magic started again. The Giants started winning games no one gave them a snowball's shot in hell of being in. They weren't even suppose to be in the playoffs, let alone as contenders. Aaron Rodgers was suppose to have a cake-walk with them, Eli was suppose to fold like a house of cards to the 9ers defense, our team was suppose to be out of the playoffs before they even began.

    Week after week, comeback win after comeback win, miracle after miracle, we've been watching something special, something magic.

    And there's one more game. One more time for the Giants go out there and say that they aren't going to lay down for anybody, that they don't read the story-lines of what's suppose to happen. The Giants never heard the tale of Tom Terrific, because the only magic the Giants believe in is their own.

    Great post!!! Loved every bit of it. U did leave out that no one thought we could beat Pre season favorite Atlanta and we were at home no less.
    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!!!

      Also I think when the giants get into this mode it seems like FATE steps in and lends a helping hand (or helmet, lol). And everyone including the Patriots knows the old saying!

      "You Can't fight FATE!!!"

                Because the Giants organization is all about class. Always has been, always will be. What you see is what you get with the Giants. No gimics

                  Yet people believe we don't have any class.

                  I forgot we need to root for other teams that are called "the dream team"

                      It's a big reason, IMO, why the haters can never give Eli any credit -- he's got no desire to be the ring leader of a circus, like Vick / Eagles and Romo / 'boys. Experts never stop to think and remember that there's always a heck of a lot of elephant s*** to clean up at a circus.




                      The media needs guys like Brees leading chants in order to bring in ratings, while Eli just goes about his business. The mediaglorifies the guy who shows up at work, stands on his desk, and beats his chest. They just ignore the guy who goes into work early, works through lunch,works late, and then happily goes home to his family.
