  • Would you rather

    go through a season where the Giants go 14-2 or 13-3 and winning the superbowl, or would you rather have them be 10-6 and 9-7 and go on this magical ride?

    reason i ask and maybe its just me or maybe its been so long i can't remember the feeling of SB21 and SB25 when I was 8 and 12yrs old. somehow these last two superbowls has been one heck of a ride as a giants fan.

      I am 54 years old and was able to experience all of our SuperBowls as a diehard fan. I was in my 30s for the first 2. My 40s for the ravens one and my 50s for the last 2. (side note. I also spent a lot of lean years as a fan all the way from like 8/10 yrs old up through their first SB.

      With that said I loved those 2 dominating teams. It was so awesome to watch. However the way they won in 07 and this season is somehow much more satisfying IMO.
      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!!!

        1 am 56 yrs old and there is nothing like knowing
        you are a bad-*** team and going out and kicking assbucket on the field. like the SB against Denver.
        We knew it
        Denver knew it
        Vegas knew it.

        sweating it out every year just to see if we can somehow hold the right tie-breaker on the last game of the season just to make the playoffs is as much fun as being waterboarded if you ask me.

        i root for 19 - 0 every year.

          Nothing will ever beat the 2007 Giants playoff run. We will never ever see such a playoff run in any sport.

          This is current playoff run is sweet though. Constant underdog and they are making the plays and winning. It is definitely more fun when Giants are underdogs and they are winning especially if the games are classics and close.

                I feel like the season as a whole would be a lot more entertaining with a dominating team, but the playoffs are just absolutely amazing and unforgettable when you're coming from behind to prove everyone wrong.

                        Wow! I just realized that there are four years in between both these Super Bowls appearances. Just sayin'....... And, yeah, I would rather have a great season, number one seed and coast through the playoffs to the Super Bowl but I gotta say there is something special about being the underdog and coming through. Nothing will top of the last Super Bowl win since the Pats were so dominant all year long. But every time the Giants are in the Super Bowl is such a sweet time for everyone.

                        GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!

                          i too root for an undefeated season; that said a team has to peak all season to accomplish that feat! as evident by the pats 18-1 season in 07, its hard to peak every game.




                          certainly i would like that senario but i also love to see the Giants peaking in week 15 and carry it on over to the sb, just as in 07 and again this year.




                          i think the Giants playing as the have since beating the Jets are the best team in the entire league today!

                            you are right.....we are the best team left now.
                            but the Pats would have lost to any of the final four teams from the NFC.the entire AFC was very weak this year.

                            i am just as confident for this game as i was
                            for the Giants/Denver SB.

                            Vegas won't admit it .....
                            but the New York Football GIANTS know it ,
                            and the Patsies know it too.

                              Re: Would you rather

                              I`m 54 and I remember all of the Giant`s Super Bowls very well.

                              The only one I had a bad feeling about ahead of time was the one with the Ravens. Their defense was just too strong.

                              The first two wins were great,the one over Buffalo was wild,being so close and hinging on that missed field goal by Buffalo.
                              Still,to me that 2007 run-up and the game itself was the most meaningful to me.

                              I literally ran outside after the game and yelled,letting off steam over the excitement of the Giants beating the top team,after the Giants had been given no chance by the experts. Felt like a huge 50th birthday present to me!



                              This one is very similar to that so far. Hardly anyone outside of the Giants faithful gave them a chance. Every team from the Cowboys on up were "supposed" to knock us out. Now they want to cry "Luck"....

                              One difference this time is I would be thrilled if the Giants dominate the game from start to finish in this SB. Leave no question who is the Best team in Football!

                              I`d actually rather they come up this way,knocking off teams left and right the hard way,rather than being one of those 18-0 Jobs like the Pats were.
