Its hard enough being a Giants fan week to week without putting the added pressure on myself thinking they "have" to reach and win the SB...
    Yet isn't as rare as some around here think... In 46 Super Bowls there have been around a dozen teams who have repeated, an average of 2.5 times per decade.

    Why not us?

But they don't, the TEAM suffers, and the Eagles look like they're worth a damn instead of the classless baseless organization that they really are... Their only true talent on that team is McCoy, and yet they walk all over us in the second half...
    That was a very disappointing aspect to the loss.

    I guess I have to break out the sports almanac.

    Lombardi's Packers (technically 3x they won the last NFL championship)
    Shula's Dolphins
    Knoll's Steelers (twice)
    Walsh's 49ers
    Johnson's Cowboys
    Shanahan's Broncos
    Belichick's Patriots

    So 8x there have been repeat champs. Not common but not as rare as we think. It means 16 of the 46 SBs have been consumed by repeats -- 1/3rd!!!

    It's worse in that going back all the way, the Giants have played in somewhere around 20 championship games and have never gone back-to-back... Even the Eagles repeated in 1948-1949.

    I really wish they would stop making this an age thing. I know plenty of people around my age that are die-hard fans of their teams and then friends of my folks who will stop watching their respective teams once they reach .350 or some win/loss ratio around there. This could very well be the last Superbowl that the Giants win in my lifetime and I'll appreciate every championship I've been able to witness. The season isn't over but I can understand the pessimism that we are already 0-2 in the divisional games.

    Anyway, injuries seem to be the biggest thing hurting this team right now and it's not letting players get comfortable with one another when there are constant changes in the lineup.

    True, but injuries are always going to be a factor, as they were last year. That's where your depth determines the outcome.

    Same here. the Age thign is actually quite funny for me, since I was born in 1988... I don't have any memory of watching Simms or Taylor play for us and my first memory of the Giants was Dave Brown throwing it up for grabs. So while I didn't endure 30 years of terrible teams, I did have to deal with my team being bad while watching Aikman get his 3 super bowls... there were more Cowboys fans in my NJ elementary school than Giants fans at that time. Now we have a squad that has the potential to be the best in the NFL in the long-term, and they're squandering it. Yeah I'm a little annoyed...
