    The NY Giants 2000 season

    When you think back on that season, what are your thoughts?

    Do you see the season as a success since we made it to the Super Bowl? Or, since we got our butts kicked you see it as a failure.

    Me, I take no pleasure in that season, despite the playoff ride and truly fantastic championship game.

    They looked so good when they routed the Vikings. And it did not feel so good when the Ravens stifled them. Honestly, last year I wanted the Patriots and it was because of the 2000 experience against the Ravens.

    Yes. I've always hated that team because of that game, their coach and RL. But now I do like RL, and I'm pulling for them over the Niners who are total scum.

    Did he? I did not know that was a proven fact.

    I've always despised the Niners and their fans since the early 80's. I see no reason to stop now.

    You know it to be true.

    I have mixed feelings about Lewis. I wasn't in the car or at the scene. I do believe Lewis knows what happened and has never told it. So - I respect what he does on the field and try to confine my thoughts about him to what I see on the screen during the game.

    As for 2000 - I was glad to see Kerry C recharge his career. I always admire folks who have been down and get back up (well, most folks, anyway). 12 wins and closing out the season with that winning streak made for a good season. A SB win is always the ultimate icing, but the cake underneath can be good too.

    It was a successful year when nobody went into '00 expecting the Giants to be in the SB. That team deserves more recognition than they get. They were the best team in a crappy NFC (back when the AFC was clearly better than the NFC).

    I was surprised that it was as big a blowout as it was because I thought that our D was very good, but the Ravens were obviously the better team. Amazingly historic D for them.

    I'm rooting for the Ravens this year.

    I hate the niners but I can't stand the thought of that jerk who should've been locked up walking into the sunset with a 2nd SB ring.

    Ya, it was a success.. We went to the SB with a QB we got for next to nothing! No one expected the Giants to go to the SB that yr.. Some teams gotta finish the job off to be consdiered a success, and some teams making it to the SB is still a big success, and the giants fall into that category for the 2000season..
