  • This Superbowl run with all the injuries trumps the Packers last year.

    When you consider the key players we lost, and the injury after injury as guys were dropping like flies for the Giants.

    How many guys were on IR for us? Plus us losing key guys during the SB.


    If you ask me all the injuries for the Packers were kinda overblown. They lost Finley, but that just shows how overrated he is. The guy drops a ton of passes as well. The other TE's were able to step up for them and even block better in the running game. Ryan Grant is nothing special.

    Their biggest legit loss was Nick Barnett. I'm not trying to discount their SB or anything, dont get me wrong, but we had to overcome much more to get to this game.

    If I told you at the beginning of the season if we were going to win the Superbowl after all these injuries, what would you say?



    Go Giants! Making history one season at a time!

    Are you crazy? They were way more banged up than the Giants were. The Giants got mostly healthy going into the playoffs. The Packers were missing many key players through their entire run.

    Dont play Ryan Grant off like he was nothing. He was a big weapon for Rodgers that season and was a big loss for them. We had almost every single key player healthy on the field.

      I'm going to say this because I feel that this is very important. When teams draft players, they can get them in lower rounds and find gems. Sometimes players may get better so we have to look at that. We also have to look at the other teams injuries who they have played against. How tough was their schedule etc. Packers may just have found enough players to take others place like we have.

Who needs a RB or Finley, when you got AR and all those receivers to throw too. Even Packers fan will admit Filney is not as good as everyone says he is. The dude is very overrated.

        Tell me who else they lost that made such an impact?

          no TT and goff

          thank god for chase

          what's more impressive was how ross held up at CB all season. i thought at preseason after TT went down that if giants were to have any success on the D side of the ball that prince would have had to develop as quick as possible.

            No way, Packers had 16!! players on IR and I'd say about they where as important as ours on the top end.

                giants had the 2nd most injured defense in the last 25 years.

                Giants had worse injuries than the packers.

                    Giants had worse injuries than the packers.[/quote]Exactly. We were completely decimated this year. It's a miracle that Cruz and some of the other guys stepped up.

                        For cryin' out loud... 16 players on IR ... 6 opening day starters did not play in the Super Bowl. Further, if you're convinced that Nick Barnett was the Pack's biggest loss last year ... well ... never mind. For the record, Ryan Grant, year before last, rushed for over 1200 yards -- that's a little more than good when you're in a 'pass first offense'. I'm sure that you're not looking for some way to elevate the Giants by denigrating the Packers.

                        The Giants were at full strength yesterday...your guys made it back in time to play down the playoff run and that's good. Quite honestly, I'm kind of thinking that you posted this thread solely to "post a thread".

                        No offense taken. The Giants are the Super Bowl Champions. Congratulations. One would think you'd be busy studying consequential things instead of how your Super Bowl Champs match up to the previous Super Bowl Champs on unmeasurable intangibles.

                          You guys had ****ty players out with injury, no names and unimportant players. We had guys that we relied on heavily, key components to our team were lost. Say what you will, but I've been a strong voice saying all season we had it worse than the Packers did and we went through worse.

                          J^3 is the man, and in the right here. Giants all day every day and twice on Super Bowl Sunday

                            Both our teams went through alot to win it all. If the Eagles dont come back and beat the Giants that Sunday and the Lions dont beat the Bucs in overtime we most likely dont make the playoffs. Then we had to win the last two regular season games to get to the playoffs. Winning 3 on the road against good teams like the Eagles, Falcons and Bears to get to the superbowl was miracolous. Giants had a very similar run beating the Cowboys and Jets to get in the playoffs then winning their home game against Atlanta then beating two very good teams on the road to get to the bowl was huge.

                              Incredible run by both teams. Packers beat the Steelers and the Giants beat the Pats. I think both the Packers and Giants were better then the Steelers and Pats both years IMO.
