    The Giants are 3-4 all-time against the 49ers in the
    postseason, including some memorable and classic games. The most recent
    playoff matchup was nine years ago -- the game in which the Giants had a
    38-14 lead in the third quarter but gave up 25 straight points and lost
    to Jeff Garcia.
    The last time the Giants won a playoff game in San Francisco was the
    NFC Championship Game on Jan. 20, 1991 to advance to the Super Bowl in
    which they would defeat the Buffalo Bills.

    Linebacker Michael Boley played perhaps his finest game as a
    Giant, recording eight solo tackles, two sacks and three tackles for
    loss. His two sacks were huge momentum-changing plays.

    Running back Brandon Jacobs was helped into the end zone in the second half after bearing witness to a rare block by Eli Manning on an Ahmad Bradshaw run. His teammates called it a "chicken wing" block and Jacobs later joked, <font color="#0000FF">"That is terrible technique at this level." LMAO!!!!!</font>



    Jacobs found a Giants fan in the stands after scoring and ran over to
    celebrate. The fan was imploring him to jump into the stands, but
    Jacobs wasn't up to it.</p>



    "'Leap! Leap!' He said leap. I was saying, 'No, no!'" Jacobs said.
    Jacobs added that there were a lot of Giants fans in Green Bay, and
    their support meant a lot.</p>

    Here are two questions for you to start your Championship Week: What
    would have happened if Ernie Accorsi hadn't had such a backbone on April
    24, 2004? And what would have happened if A.J. Smith had played
    hardball with Accorsi as the clock wound down on the fourth overall pick
    of the 2004 NFL Draft, with just seven minutes to go and the Giants on
    the clock?</p>

    Ben Roethlisberger a Giant.</p>

    Osi Umenyiora (not Shawne Merriman) a Charger.</p>

    Eli Manning a Charger.</p>

    It
    takes a big story to throw the 49ers off the front page of Monday
    Morning Quarterback today -- and you Niner fans will get your love soon
    enough, courtesy of the man who made the block of the year in NFL -- but
    the fates of Manning and Umenyiora, after their huge combined role in
    the Giants' 37-20 trouncing of the top-seeded Packers last evening, were
    on my mind as I sat down to write. I've told the story of the 2004
    draft and the Manning/Chargers/Giants love triangle before, but the
    Umenyiora part of it has never gotten its due.</p>

    Smith, the
    Chargers' rookie GM at the time, asked then-Giants GM Accorsi for
    unknown second-year pass-rusher Umenyiora in the week before the draft.
    No, Accorsi said; I don't trade young pass-rushers. San Diego had the
    first pick in the draft, and Manning said he didn't want to play for San
    Diego, but the Chargers picked him anyway -- and everyone in football
    knew they wanted North Carolina State quarterback Philip Rivers instead;
    the Manning pick was going to force the Giants to deal a ransom for him
    because Accorsi loved Manning and Smith knew it. So with the Giants on
    the clock, Smith called again.</p>

    "He brought up Umenyiora again,'' Accorsi told me last night, "and I said no. We were not giving him up. There was no way.''</p><div style="overflow: hidden; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); text-align: left; text-decoration: none; border: medium none;">

    So now the trade teetered. If Smith had insisted on Umenyiora and
    killed the deal, Accorsi had an ace up his sleeve: He could trade down
    three spots and pick up a second-round pick from Cleveland ... and still
    draft the Giants' No. 2 quarterback on the board, Ben Roethlisberger
    from Miami of Ohio. The Giants liked Manning much more, but Accorsi
    wouldn't budge on Umenyiora. Accorsi offered the Giants' first- and
    third-round picks in '04, and an '05 first-rounder. "We still want
    Osi,'' Smith told him.</p>

    Tick, tick, tick ...</p>

    Two minutes left.</p>

    Accorsi's last, best offer.</p>

    "No Osi,'' he said. "That's still a deal-breaker. But we'll throw in a six next year.''</p>

    Pause on the line from San Diego.</p>

    Tick, tick, tick ...</p>

    "Make it a four,'' Smith said.</p>

    "I'll give you a five,'' Accorsi said.</p>

    Done.</p>

    On
    Sunday, here came the Packers, down 20-10 to start the second half,
    starting and stopping down the field, trying desperately to find some
    rhythm. Five minutes into the half, Aaron Rodgers had the Pack at the
    Giants' 30, and it was first down, and he took the snap and looked over a
    packed secondary that had frustrated him throughout the first half.
    From Rodgers' left, Umenyiora took an inside move against left tackle
    Chad Clifton, beating him as Clifton flailed away. </p>

    Now 30
    and coming off knee and ankle injuries and a contract hissing match with
    current GM Jerry Reese earlier this season, Umenyiora sped in and
    batted the ball out of Rodgers' hand just as he went to pass. (Telling
    stat from FOX just then: The forced fumble was the 32nd of Umenyiora's
    nine-year career. That's a lot.) Giants recovered. Packers never got
    closer than seven the rest of the way. Umenyiora had two of the Giants'
    four sacks, and the line made sure Rodgers was never comfortable all
    day.</p>

    Accorsi liked defensive linemen, and he stocked this
    team with Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka before he left
    the team after the 2006 season. In came Reese, and he's taken it up a
    notch: Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard in free agency, along with Dave
    Tollefson (a seventh-round pick from Green Bay who was cut, signed to
    Oakland's practice squad, and then signed by the Giants from the
    Raiders), and Linval Joseph and Jason Pierre-Paul in the draft. Can't
    have enough defensive linemen. That, plus their cool quarterback and his
    receiving weapons, is why the Giants are one win away from their second
    Super Bowl in four years.</p>

    "People have always depicted
    what we did in that '04 draft as an obsession with Eli Manning,'' said
    Accorsi. "It wasn't. If we'd have had to, we'd have taken
    Roethlisberger, and we'd have been fine with that. We just weren't
    giving up Umenyiora.''</p>

    Almost eight years later, Accorsi's
    stubbornness is a big reason the Giants are headed to San Francisco for
    Sunday's NFC Championship Game ... and just as big a reason the Packers
    feel so deflated this morning.</p>


    </p>

    GOD BLESS THAT MAN!!!
