    Now say it with me: it was just a bunch of lucky plays and the Giants stole SB42.

    Doesn't that feel better?
    nope , you keep leaving out the outstanding defense that really won the game.

    anyways all you smug-asterisks jumpin' on board here to pummel me need to keep in mind
    that i jumped in here to defend our defense....that really won the game.
    stop making me compare Eli and Phil....it wasn't my intent.
    I am not smug or am I making you compare. I plainly said I dont compare them.
    Simms and the Giants had a historical game. So did Eli and the Giants.....

    Don't put words in my mouth, I've never knocked the defense from SB42 nor is a comment such as that to be found anywhere in my post.

    Eli has played like a top 5 qb one season in his entire career.

    I hate to say it but this is really the crux of the issue.
    Eli has had one great season out of 9. If he was having another great season this year, you could make an argument that he has developed and has become a great QB. But he's been horrible in the last 4 games. He has rookie numbers with 12 TD's and 11 Int's..
    Its actually very discouraging.
    Get well soon 80.

    The defense was outstanding that game and you could say they "won sb42" however they did the exact opposite and gave up the lead with under 2 minutes to go. That's not subjective, it's not a matter of perception, luck or anything but what it actually was. They gave up the game winning TD and did anything but actually win the game. The contribution was enormous - they didn't win the game.

    It's not a dis on the D - but it's just as foolish as saying it was the offense who LOST the regular season game against the Pats.

    you are correct...but someone's else's post said that it was the defenses poor play
    that resulted in Eli's having to perform an MVP comeback.
    i defended the defense and pointed out the over-all ineptitude of the offense.
    which is the truth.
    then the Eli homers started jumping in ....

    you climbed on board way later after things started getting twisted.
    if you really don't think that SB wasn't classic "David vs Goliath"
    and the defense was the slingshot.....then keep arguing with me.
    but that's the gist of it.

    if you actually read the whole thread you will see that my original posts
    say that i like both players and that i thought Simms should STFU.
    and i haven't been comparing Simms vs Eli careers....
    only the SB performances were being discussed....which as i pointed
    out are one-sided in Phil's favor.

    more gold for you. really.

    Both QB's won us Super Bowls.
    Whether Eli is elite or not, it doesn't matter, he has 2 Super Bowls anyway.

    Now let's all hug and make up.
