I am proud of 2000 NY Giants team for getting to SuperBowl.
If I am not mistaken, I think Baltimore Ravens defense jumped off sides to start the game just to rattle KC.
Accorsi is on record as saying that he never felt good about the preparation for that game because it was too "light-hearted" for him. He felt that the Giants team didn't have the intensity to win the game because they were just happy to be there.
Yes, coaching scared worked out very well for us.
So, while you have made valid points, I would still maintain my view that we essentially had no chance to win that game (barring a crap load of huge breaks going our way)
