I never stated I wasn't proud of the accomplishment. However, I will point out the reality of what happened and not look at it with rose colored glasses for what it was. Your continued false elevation of our defense will continue to be exposed.
It's a team sport when the Giants win. It's "Eli's inconsistency" when the Giants lose.
It's a team sport when the Packers lose, and it's Rodgers' total awesomeness when the Packers win.
I think you're a tad too sensitive when it comes to Eli. There are plenty of times when we win the game despite Eli playing inconsistent. I'll say something along the lines of Eli played terrible the first half but awesome the second. I wish he would be consistent. Then people get all pissy saying, "wtf man, we won! Eli hater!"
My point being. There are plenty of times when Eli's inconsistent play has been brought up - even during wins or good times.
I just don't understand how a Giants fan can mock that historic performance. 5 sacks. They knocked Tom Brady on his *** 19 times. It was a beating that Brady took, unlike anything he had seen all season where he was barely touched.
It makes no sense at all to make the snarky comments you have made.
But if that's what you feel you need to do...go for it.
if theres one thing thats diminished over time, besides peoples memory of that NE D, its of that NE OL. That OL was and still is in some regards phenomenal. That 07 OL in particular, they really just allowed Brady to stand tall all season and face minimal pressure. its bc of that ironically that brady was no where near ready for the DL onslaught that we saw sb 42. that DL played lights out all game, but "all game" was shortened bc the offense pitched in some too...granted, woulda liked for them to score more earlier, but that redzone int and just missed opportunities werent dentrimental bc the DL took over until the O got it going. Id say both SB,s it wasnt our entire unit played lights out all game, it was that our O would help the D out when needed, and the D helped the O out when needed...
