As for the rest, where is all this coming from? Why are we even talking about blame or credit to begin with? My comment was strictly tongue-in-cheek.
Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but you're taking this way too seriously and making mountains out of molehills. Or are you mixing up posts by different posters. But either way, I really don't care why we won the SB. Just that we did win.
I'm a Giants fan. I have 0 emotional attachment to Eli, Cruz, JPP, or any of the players when it comes to the team. Ultimately, I treat everyone the same - as pawn pieces. Nothing more. Nothing less. I love Cruz to pieces, but the minute he asks for some ridiculous contract (if it happens), I'd be more than happy to show him the door if it is in teh best interest of the team.
Edit: And your assessment of the SB? I completely agree with you. Football is a team game. As for the helmet catch thing, I'm curious to know what you would have said. And just for fun, I'll say this. The entire play was ridiculous. Great plays by Tyree and Eli. Did that play and the drive win us the game? Probably and Absolutely. But was it the main reason why we won? No.

Entire Team Let Eli down today - NYG4l
Ben moved the ball in SB 43 and scored to win as did Montana vs. Cincy. As did Brady twice.
Not taking away from Eli. He did a great job. But it wasn't just Eli making plays. It was a lot of guys who don't get as much credit as the QB. Like the great blitz pickup by BJ to allow Plaxico the time to get open. Not to mention the great play by Steve Smith to turn a 3 yard pass into a first down.
This entire "Eli did it...Eli did it" as if they both weren't great team efforts is silliness in my humble opinion.
