    They held the greatest offense to well under their average score. Even Burress knew the defense would dominate that game.

    Didn't realize he played defense. He really is the entire reason why they won.

    No more than you talk down our D to prop up Eli.

Eli Manning and NY Giants offense keeping Tom Brady on tue sidelines for almost 38 minutes was The Best defense that day.Peyton is 1and done 8 times in post season. This last one is all on him for the loss with that lame overtime pick as was the pick 6 in SuperBowl against Saints. Eli Manning may not be a better overall QB than Peyton Manning but he far surpasses him in post season.
    Our Defense gave up the lead? So? What are they supposed to do, hold one of the best offenses in the history of football to 7points? I don't caer about when or what, i care that our defense only gave up 17 and 14 to NE.. Bottom line is we were underdogs in both games, and in both games NE's Team over was way way higher then what they ended up with, and our Team over was also higher, which we did not get.. I mean, its not rocket science, that our defense is the only reason we even had a chance to make those great 4th qter drives.. Normally, NE would of had way more points on the board, and it woulden't even matter if we scored when we did..

    Obviously ELI played well, and its not like we su-cked on offense by any stretch, but its way more of a team effort, and i feel that without our defense playing like they did, none of that other stuff has a chance to happen..

    Even through all our defensive efforts, we still needed some crazy "luck" catch by David Tyree to win that game.. As amazing as our defense played, we still needed luck by our offense to pull it off..

    I was alittle annoyed Justin Tuck didn't get MVP in 2007 SB... I thought he was most desrving...

    I thought Tuck should have gotten the award too. If for no other reason then to acknowledge the tremendous job our defense did in that game.
    But you know how sports writers are. They will always give it to the winning QB when they drive for a late, winning score. Even if it was the defense's performance all game long that gave him that opportunity.

    Now the 2011 SB?....Yes that MVP was well earned by Eli.

    Eli deserve Superbowl MVP cause he really had nobody but Burress. Tuck had Strahan and Osi around that line. .

    It's just like the Heisman trophy. They mind as well just call it the QB & RB Award and occasionally WR.

    So Brandon Jacobs, Chris Snee, Amhad Bradshaw, Steve Smith, Amani Toomer, Sean O'Hara and David Tyree missed the bus to the game?
