    they were 9-7 last year. Seems both sides of the ball played inspired in the SB and playoffs...

    I'm feeling telepathic. You will say that Eli kept potent New England offense off the field by eating up clock.

    When they lose its the defenses fault. When they wins its all because of Eli. Don't you know this?

    I hope Flacco and the Ravens can pull this off....And yes they are both similar....big-time clutch quarterbacks in BIG games and both get zero respect outside of their respective fanbase's

    Little Joey has to win in two weeks, then we will consider, he has stepped up his game for sure. Not a big Raven fan after 2000 season but would love to see them ram it down the 49ers throat.

    We'll just add that to the long list of things you have been wrong about.

    I hesitate to tell you, since the answer is so team oriented, but the truth is the truth.

    What happened in week 17 when they met and why was the SB so different from that game?

    The answer...Both defenses made masterful adjustments to the other team.

    There is a fantastic clip of a play NE ran in week 17 verses the same exact play in the SB.
    In week 17, Mitchell was in the middle, and when the ball was snapped, he backed into coverage. In front of him was a gaping hole that lead straight to Brady.

    In the SB, NE ran the same play. Mitchell took two steps back, and when the same exact hole opened up, he went right after Brady. BOOM

    NE made adjustments also...and by NE, I mean Bill B, the defensive play caller. NE's plan, as it always is, was to take away the biggest threat--in this case, it was Eli.

    Both defenses did great jobs, and I will easily and completely agree that the Jints did better job...a much better job.

    But...in the end, Brady was Brady, and late in the 4th, he drove down on that great D and scored. No shame in that. No fault in that. It felt like destiny to me.

    Then Eli needed to do something that had never been done before, and he needed to do it against a team that had not lost a game all season.
    And did they ever bring the heat! They mixed up the coverage. They were making plays.

    But it wasn't enough.

    Eli kept his cool and became the only QB to make that drive to score a game winning TD when only a TD would do it.

    See how I credited both the Giants D and the NE D? The haters just credit the Giants D without remembering how Eli tore into in week 17 and how one of the best defensive football minds came up short in his plan to stop him.


    PS...Don't throw the helmet catch/luck thing out at me...it will just end poorly for you.

    Didn't both games end with the Giants on defense?

    Didn't you know?....It was Eli who inspired that planting of Tom Brady by Alford.
    It was Eli that distracted Brady when Tuck stripped the ball at the end of the half.
    It was Eli who inspired the 5 sacks and 19 knockdowns.
    It was Eli who caused the Pats to have their running game snuffed.
    Get well soon 80.
