Official New York Giants Superbowl Thread

I figured that the other thread was a lot more about last week vs. the Cowgirls and T.O crying, so this possibly could be stickied?

Did Eli Manning seriously just lead a team to 3 consecutive road wins and a trip to the Superbowl? I can't believe this. It would be like us sweeping the Devils, Flyers, and Senators with Valiquette in goal. I honestly can't believe this. I was expecting an 8-8 season at best, and when we clinched the playoffs I don't think anyone was expecting more than a win vs. the Bucs. To beat the Cowboys in such a fashion made it seemingly possible for us to win this game tonight, but no way could you tell me that Eli Manning would out-dual Brett Favre into an OT game and become the 2nd road QB to ever win a playoff Game at Lambeau Field. After Tynes missed his 2nd field goal and the Pack won the coin toss it was inevitable that the Giants were going to lose. Thank god for Cory Webster though.

I will feel the same going into the Superbowl as I did before tonight's game; There is no way we are going to win, but at the same time maybe we can actually pull it off.

Finally, hopefully this will begin the prime of Eli Manning. I honestly have not liked him AT ALL since he was basically drafted, and I have repeatedly said that the Giants will simply never win under him. Tonight, however, he out-dueled a top 5 QB of all-time, and I am beginning to think that he is going to become a top NFL QB.

Let's go Giants! Give us something to cheer about during a crappy hockey season!

I am in the exact same boat as you, but I am pretty pumped about the Giants. There isn't really a rivalry between the Jets and the Giants, and it's cool to see Eli play so well. It would be sick to see them beat the Pats

As a Jets fan I normally don't like the Giants (don't hate them like certain other teams though) and I actually wanted Green Bay to win tonight. However, two weeks from today, I hope they kick the s*** out of the Patriots!!! Go Giants!!

0 INTs on 85 attempts in the post-season; 250+ yards passing tongiht (should've been well over 300), and Eli is WEAK? Please, all the Eli haters can sit down and shut it for two weeks, thank you very much.

This was an NFL record 10th straight road win by the Jints. GO BLUE!

Wouldn't it make more sense to merge this thread with the last one?

Anyway, I'm digging this underdog stuff. The last two weeks I've felt guardedly optimistic, and that's exactly how I feel right now. They've got a legit shot at pulling off the upset. A very small one, but legit nonetheless.

*** A!! It just sounds absurd right now. He just outplayed Brett Favre in Lambeau Field in some of the harshest weather you can imagine.

How sweet it is, to have a run like this, it does not get much better. To send Brett Favre home, in late January, in Lambeau, it does not get much better then that.

To prove all the doubters, and Eli bashers completly wrong, that is just priceless.

Holy.

****ing.

****!


I love this team...they play with so much heart. It has not truly sunk in just yet that we are going to the Super Bowl. Seriously, I'm STILL in shock. But what an amazing feeling. This team never gave up and just went about their business and kept winning road games.

The Pats will be tough, but hell, we've come this far already.

For now, I'm going to enjoy this thoroughly. I've been a Giants fan my whole life and tonight is one of the happiest moments I've ever had watching this team. Even if it nearly caused me to hyperventilate.

One final thing: When Tynes missed the field goal at the end of regulation (which I KNEW that he was going to miss even before he did), did anyone else have some slight nightmares going back to last May? Rangers and Sabres series tied, Rangers winning and just 7 seconds from the lead. This time it was the Giants just a field goal from winning.

Once he missed it, I thought we were done. This ALWAYS happens to the Giants. And all of my teams pretty much.

But the Webster interception...I mean, this team has won nailbiters all season and it just continued. I'm still in shock.

Smith & Toomer, who had a shakey game tonight. Also, if Plax had held onto that deep root at the 4 yard line.

Yeah, let me see you led the Giants into the Super Bowl by beating the Pack on Lambeau Field in weather of -24 wind chill.

They had some trouble with the ball but who didn't in this weather? I actually thought they both played well.

You know Tiki Barber isn't going to shut up.

Seriously though do you think that Tiki retireing ended up being addition by subtraction. From a far (I'm not really a Giants fan) it seems the Giants have had a lot less in fighting this year with the main instigator gone and thus they were able to rally as a team come playoff time.

And Boss should have had that TD catch on the opening drive. Frankly, the only two poor passes were when he underthrew Plax in the endzone, and he underthrew Smith...otherwise, Eli was superb.

Jacobs is a beast and is way better than Tiki IMO.

You know I was just wondering this but with Shockey instead, maybe minus these two prima donna's has helped form this chemistry they seem to have now.

I think more than anything that the softening of Coughlin (which everyone involved insists has made such a huge difference) was the thing that was influenced the most by Tiki leaving. I don't think he would have done things like form that leadership council because he couldn't trust Tiki not to undermine him.

I loved Tiki throughout his career, and he'd have to do a lot for me not to always lood back on his career fondly, but I really think this team is better off without him.
