    Dusty Zeigler wasn't going to block Ray Lewis on his best day. And no brilliant gameplan would change that.

    I don't get it. Since the merger, we've won 5 NFC championships. That year was one of them.

    I just don't understand this.
    Losing in the SB is the second best thing that can happen to a team. Its a better result than 30 other teams get. I'm not saying I'm happy losing a SB, but it means you won the conference championship. And for a team like the 2000 Giants who overachieved all season, its not bad at all.

    I mean I can see a lot of disappointment if your team was dominant and it blew the SB to an inferior team, but that was hardly the case.

    Just getting to SuperBowl is a great accomplishment.

    It's simultaneously the worst. It tears the team apart.

    Ask someone like Patrick Ewing or Jim Kelley if it's the 2nd best thing that can happen to a team.
