"A PERFECT ENDING"


Once upon a time there was a team in blue

Who made it to the playoffs despite starting 0 and 2

The Road Warriors from NY would bend but never fold

Winning 11 straight away games on the path to the Super Bowl

They rolled into Arizona heavy underdogs

But Coughlin’s resilient bunch remained stoic in their cause

Twas Perfection vs. Destiny – but nothing is perfect tis true

Destiny would rule the day in the form of BIG BLUE!

The defense hounded Brady till he had stars in his eyes

He should have stayed at home twixt Giselle Munchkin’s thighs

The Giants were the better team - all rumors put to bed

When Tyree snatched a Manning pass off his freakin’ head!

They spoke of Moss and Seau and how perfect they would be

But alas at games end twas Eli crowned MVP

No spygate here Bellicheat – all your cameras were tossed

You were clearly out coached by Spagnuola and you freakin’ lost

"Good Lord!" Bob Kraft cried, "My team has come undone!"

Correct Skeeza! You perfect team is now 18 and 1

The New York Giants are champions - of this there is no denyin’

Their gritty, determined effort left the Pats cryin’

Sorry New England – your team has run out of luck

Bay Ridge, Brooklyn salutes you with a chant of "Boston Sucks!"

Oh somewhere in Fenway the Red sox smile tonight

And at the Boston Arena the Celtics are taking flight

But there is no joy in New England – out there they all just pout

Because the Patriots – the "Perfect Patriots" have just crapped out!

Not in you live in the New York area and are a Giants fan...

To us, this WAS a climax for the ages and as good as it gets. In fact, the last 4 games was as great of a run as The NFL has ever seen by a team that was expected to bow out quickly in the playoffs and accomplish very little. The Giants squashed the Pats bid to become the best team in history while making a little history of their own. They also beat the the number one and two seeds in the playoffs - on the road no less! They beat Romo, Favre and Brady in 3 consecutive games. No easy task, in any year.

The Giants Super Bowl win turned the biggest city in the world into the world's biggest smile...

It just doesn't get any better if you are a sports fan in NY on any level...
In some ways, I feel like a kid again - at least for a little while.

This photo says it all...Thank you Giants!

I hope that is sarcasm, otherwise you need help.

Anti-climatic, really.

Beat Tampa Bay on the road...............Beat the Dallas Cowgirls on the road................Beat Farve and the Packers in sub zero temps on the road...................Beat the 18-0, offensive record setting New England Patriots.

Anti-climatic, for a team that was picked to be a 500 team before the season??? I'll take two of whatever you are drinking or smoking. That was the most dramatic Superbowl ever IMO and the NFC Championship game was dramatic as hell too.


2007 World Champion New York Giants!!!

And guess what, we are a very young and upcoming team that will be able to compete for the trophy again in the years to come.

Go Big Blue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for making me so proud and giving me such unbelievable memories!!!!!

Not sarcasm at all, but thanks for the condescension, 68. After one of the most exciting regular seasons in recent memory with 4 solid contenders, I've got to say it was one of the most disappointing post-seasons in recent memory. The NY Giants were abandoned by their fans and local sports media after week 2, then they back into the playoffs and go on to defeat 3 of the 4 best teams in the league in as many weeks, including the undefeated Patriots. Very, very impressive, yes, but completely anti-climactic, unless you're one of the three Giants fans that didn't throw their team, coach and QB under the proverbial bus weeks earlier.

It's as if I just watched Predator, and after Dutch, Dillon, Mac, Blain, et al, go down, lone survivor Hawkins defeats the Predator by biting and pinching it for 15 minutes, meanwhile, everyone thinks it's the greatest action movie ever just because the Predator is dead at the end. Great spoiler post-season for the Giants and their fans, I'm not saying the team doesn't deserve every playoff win they got (they peaked when it mattered, when everyone else dipped), but the post-season and it's heavy hitters' limp playoff performances definitely didn't live up to the regular season's promise. That's what I call an anti-climax.

PorkChopBob, I don't want to seem like I'm calling you out. PCB is probably my favorite sceen name here but to me you sound like Bradshaw or Howie Long. You wanted the drama of Romo Vs Brady. Pretty boy QB's and their celebutard girl friends or the Old vet Favre vs. Brady. The Giants were the team nobody picked. There's a difference between being critical of a team and abandoning a team. Nobody abandoned this team. It's not like they won all those road playoff games on controversial calls or anything. They went out and outplayed and beat the snot of everyone in their path. It was great. Yes I'm biased but I don't think it was anti climatic because T.O or Ladanian Tomlinson ( I refuse to call anyone but Lawrence Taylor L.T.) or Brett Favre did not get to the big game.

This is like when St. Louis won the world series a few years ago. As a Met fan I was bummed but all the talk of the worse team to win the world series was crap. They won fair and square. They played at high level when it mattered and that's what the NY Football Giants did the last month of the season. To me it was inspiring.

Funny thing. I have a friend who coaches high school soccer and he's always talking about the "Pork Chop theory" 6 brothers......... 7 Pork Chops. The hungriest brother gets that extra pork chop. Well the Giants were obviously the hungrier team and got that extra pork chop.

Pork Chop Bob......... I present to you..........The Pork Chop Theory.

You sound like a bitter Patriots fan. If you didn't know it the NY Football Giants have some of the most loyal and passionate fans in the world. Nobody threw the Giants under the bus, we just looked at our team in a realistic way going by what all the experts were saying. The team matured and jelled at the right time and shocked everyone including us loyal fans.

Hell, going into the playoffs I didn't even feel totally confident that we would beat Tampa. But as the playoffs progressed you could feel this team maturing and the momentum changing. I still didn't think we would beat the Patriots and would have been very proud just to give them a good competetive game. That is what makes this victory so sweet. We dominated the highest scoring offense in NFL history and shocked the world. I'm sorry but anti-climatic is the farthest thing from what the ending of this NFL season was.

By the way, it was the most watched Superbowl in history too.

Whoa, ok. To paraphrase myself so there is no misunderstanding, as a football fan, I watch the great teams in the regular season in anticipation of watching greater things from them during the post-season. This post-season, however, the Giants were the great team. Not to take anything away from them, but they peaked and played great football while everyone else (Pats, Packers, Colts, Cowboys) limped down the stretch. I don't want to watch a scripted season where the "stars" all get a free pass to the big dance, that's what makes the NFL the best sports league in the world. But the teams that carried the regular season didn't show up in the playoffs, and for me, it was a let down.

quote:

Again, not taking away anything, but this stat means nothing about the quality of the game. Since 2000, Super Bowls are 9 of the top 10 prime time broadcasts, and they have almost always increased in viewership from one year to the next. The 10th was this year's NFC Championship. So adjust the stat for population increase, and the increased broadcast range and it is bound to increase accordingly. And even if you don't take that into account, a whole lot of people went to see Meet The Spartans a few weekends ago, but God help us if that says anything about anything. I don't want to think about it.

quote:

This is true, I'll give you that. It's just a different sports culture in NYC since it is the biggest local sports media market, there's a much more intensely critical attitude than a lot of other markets. People and pundits were talking about Eli like he was Ryan Leaf (hell, even in the early-mid 90s, some Packers fans, the most loyal fan base in the NFL, would occasionally chant "Brunell!" after a Favre pick) and I know a lot of people were comparing Tom Coughlin to Isiah Thomas, so when Ray Romano-err...excuse me Mike Francesa and his ilk start b1tching about the sad state of affairs as if it's the Bay of Pigs, one gets exhausted. They're certainly not complaining now, though.

It's interesting to me living in New York, the biggest local sport media market in the country, and watching the dynamic between it and Boston. All of a sudden, the towns have switched roles over the last 5 years, in a sense - the Yankees/Patriots dominated for years, earning the undeserved hatred via the rhetoric of a jealous sports nation, only to finally be ceremoniously unseated by the Red Sox/Giants. The Giants also mirror the 2001 Pats team. That Pats team came out of no where to knock off the very successful and hated St Louis Rams in the same fashion the Giants just did. It'll be interesting to see where things go from here. The 2002 Pats didn't even make the playoffs.

Ha, "celebutard". I like that. I think Peyton Manning falls into this category. Zillions of commercials and all I can ever think of when I watch/hear him is Timmy from South Park.

So the Giants knock off three teams with a combined 43-6 record and that's not good enough for you? If that's what you call limping into the playoffs then the rest of the NFL was DOA week 1.

Great job NY!!!!! All of Pittsburgh thanks you because WE HATE THE PATRIOTS It was so nice to see the cockiness of the Pats after their last touchdown turn to tears after Eli and the gang marched right down the field on the old defense of New England. I knew that the Pats would lose because of their age at linebacker, but I didn't think it would come as a result of another QB passing all over them Long live the ABB and may the Patriots lose the rest of their games.....or maybe just the ones that count for championships
