No one remembers who came in second.
football isn't about predicting....it's about execution
every team runs pretty much the same plays and gives them different names
there are only so many route combinations
it is not about being predictable or not predictable.....it is about personnel and execution
see the Parcells years for reference ....... unbelievably predictable with good personnel and great execution
You kinda have to wait and see how this season plays out. What if they won it all? Odds are Giants miss the playoffs, and if they do, I wouldn't be surprised to see a new staff next year because I'm thinking TC's wife might convince him that 2 SB's are enough.
The Giants won their 2 Super Bowls under Coughlin and Gilbride DESPITE their coaching, not because of it. If you look at the Super Bowl seasons, the Giants were STACKED with talent. Their records in those years should have been much better than what they actually were. Coughlin has kept his job because his team has won two SBs. But the Giants would have been much more dominant those years if it weren't for those two patzers' inept coaching.
Predictability IS a huge disadvantage in football. That's why the Patriots were spying on teams a few years ago. Remember? While having a well-honed and polished team minimizes the negative impact of predictability (think 90's Cowboys), it is certainly a negative nonetheless.
And Tecmo Super Bowl was a SNES game also. Now I just feel sorry for you, because you obviously never had the honor of playing it.
In 07 we beat an undefeated Patriots team/Bill Bellichek, a team that just didn't lose in the playoffs at the time. At that point Eli was average at best at QB and Tom Brady's playoff record was ridiculous.
If anything the Giants have overachieved by earning two trophies. We beat teams with better talent.
What do you want Gilbride to do, run flea flickers and jump passes at the goaline like Shiano? haha.

We almost made a full week without the blame game rising from the ashes.
NoOoOoOoOoO... Kevin Gilbride had a hand in 2 Super Bowls, which mean his offense is the best in the last 7 years... Lifetime immunity, BABY!!!
