  • I'm happy that Bradshaw scored the TD.

    I did think it was a mistake at first, but so many things can go wrong on a kick. No kick is a guarantee.

    I heard the radio call by Papa and Banks and Banks said it was the right thing to do. He said you score the TD and trust your defense.

    I think he should have went down then scored on the next play

      I agree -- don't screw around. And I don't like that Eli had told him "not to score" when handing him the ball -- talk about a mind ****.

      I don't even buy that Bradshaw "lost momentum." I think he was confused by what he heard and when at the goal line, decided to take the TD instead of not taking it because he was unsure about what he heard. Either way, doesn't matter to me -- I'm just glad he scored the TD.

        I agree 100%, I was begging for him to take the TD when I saw the Pats clear out. like buddy33 said, no kick is a guarantee, anything can happen. I think coaches, announcers and players all take field goals for granted in short range. Things happen. Could you imagine how devastating it would have been to opt to just get the field goal and have it blocked, or a terrible snap or something?!

          If you give up a TD from an 8 yard drive with 50 secs left, you deserve to lose. Take the TD.

            Re: I'm happy that Bradshaw scored the TD.

            my theory on this is similar to the final game of the reg. season in 07 when coughlin said you go all out every game every play.

            in the SB, why would you let up and not go full out? why would BB do that? now the players will have to wonder what if...what if we stopped them, what if we forced a fumble, what if we blocked the kick...

            and its why i like that bradshaw scored...u go all out every game every play. u dont let up or take it easy, thats how bad things happen.

            just my take on it. had it been a reg. season game i may feel differently, but in the sb, u go all out for 60 minutes

              I agree with you
              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!!!

                We won - I'm happy but a thought:

                A kick from that close is in fact almost always a gimme - as many of you say things can happen - um yes they can - but in fact they almost never do.

                A closer look of Tynes shows you he is almost perfect from inside 40. Now you can bring up Cundiff or anderson or anything else you'd like but those are the exceptions and are extremely rare - 97 percent of the time you nail it and not doing something b/c you could get cundiffed is mathematically foolish. That said i dont mind that he scored and put them up by more then an FG with less then 1 minute to play.

                  tynes has had chip shot fgs blocked and also has missed chip shot fgs. one vs atlanta in round 1 even...i agree its the easiest kick possible, but it doesnt mean it can't go bad real fast

                    Re: I'm happy that Bradshaw scored the TD.

                    Statistically it actually does mean it wont go bad real fast - he did not miss any kick from that close all year - in fact he is 56 of 57 all time from inside 29, so im not sure why you bring up the missed kick against atlanta. In fact its a 96 percent chance around the league. Yes it could be missed and yes planes do crash - but it is extremely unlikely . And then there is this.

                    There will be those of you who say, "Well, Billy Cundiff missed a short field goal two weeks ago!" Doing or not doing something because one player on another team failed at a relatively easy task in the recent past is just about the dumbest way to run a business of any sort. Should the Giants have never thrown a pass into the end zone because Lee Evans dropped his open touchdown catch at the end of the AFC Championship Game?

                    Again happy AB scored but to think it couldnt have worked out another way to is silly - Still revisionist history is lame - we won - IM HAPPY.

                      Yeah the TD is what i would've called. A field goal would've made me more nervous. A botched snap or blocked field goal would've gave me nightmares for the rest of my life.

                        I was initially angry about the TD, but after thinking about it rationally, it was the right thing to do. Take the points you are being handed on a silver platter, and trust our D. Even if Tynes nails the kick with 20 ticks left, ones if kick return to the 40 or 50 puts them 20 yards or so away from their own FG attempt...scoring a TD in 1 minute isn't exactly an easy task with 1 timeout.

                        I'm bummed for a selfish reason,,,the call from every broadcast was so anti-climactic! That had to have been the least exciting game-winning TD EVER! Still...it was a hell of a game with a hell of a finish. Still can't believe it's real.

                          the way everyone here thinks about Tynes....

                          he would have had the whole collective of Giants fans thinking he'll miss it, when enough people believe something it usually happens

                          for me I'll never forget it was a Bradshaw that scored the winner in this one []

                              Not to mention, plenty can go wrong running the ball. The Pats were going for the strip every single play. Bradshaw has fumbled by himself in the past. There could be a bad snap, there could be a botched handoff, the ball can get poked out, they could blitz and Eli gets tackled before making the handoff. Doesn't anybody remember Joe Pisarcik fumbling the ball after a bad handoff when all they had to do was take a knee to win the game, instead the Eagles recover and the Giants lose.

                              And if you run out the clock, you don't even have to trust your defense because you aren't putting them on the field and you aren't giving Tom Brady a minute to hock the ball downfield. That hail mary was right there and they had a good chance to catch it.

                              Take a knee, Pats use their last time out.
                              Take another knee and let the clock run out, take the 5 yard delay of game. That leaves about 20 seconds on the clock.
                              Take another knee, call timeout with 3 seconds left.
                              Kick FG. Game over. Brady never gets off the bench.
