    Philly will ever jell and Vick has run out of tricks. Andy Reid overdue to exit. Bears possible..... I saw Falcons playoff lose live....... I am not concerned about them.

    Something about that falcons team that doesn't worry me at all.

    But they did upgrade in the secondary alot so it's possible they could be better this season

    If it makes you feel any better, the way we caught the ball, fumbled the ball, and tackled, we would have lost to the Jets, Bears, Lions, Saints, Eagles, Cows, 49ers, Cardinals, Seahawks, Redskins, and maybe even the Bucs and the Rams that day.
    Only the Vikings would have still lost to us that day.

    Then you guys got the donations from the Williams punt returner to give you that NFC Title game vs San Francisco. Nice charity for New York.
    But you accepted those gifts as you should have.
    Then you beat the Golden Boy and Genius Bill, which is fine with me.

    But don't expect gifts next January.

    Health is a key part of the NFL. When healthy, the Giants match up well with the Packers and are capable of beating them on even their best day, so I don't want ot hear it

    I'll give you that the Giants match up well with the Packers and that they're capable of beating us. But not on the Packers' best day- that's wishful thinking. Conversely, I doubt the Packers could beat the G men on their best day. That's just the reality, stripped of all the braggadocio.

    Some of these Giants fans do a tremendous disservice to my perception of their fans. Used to be glad that NY upended the Patriots twice in the Superbowl; now, not so much. Enjoy the high while it lasts, SALSA.

    Health had nothing to do with us dropping passes, fumbling balls, etc.

    But it had everything to do with GB winning the first meeting. Dropped balls aren't an excuse and the fumbles were due to Giants ripping it out of Packer hands. Your argument has no base.

    False.
    Dropped passes had nothing to do with them being ripped out.
    John Kuhn's fumble came when the ball hit a Packer offensive lineman's butt.
    Ryan Grant's fumble was as he was about to hit the ground and he forgot to protect the ball as it got popped out.
    A fricking Hail Mary is skill? Really?
    And a play after your own coach tried to basically run out the clock with a run, but our defense fell asleep and failed to tackle, allowing 25 yards - and to get out of bounds- to give you hope of winging a Hail Mary as the half expired in a 3-point game. That is a lot of luck son, nothing more.

    If you really believe we played anything better than our 'C' game, then you are totally delusional.

    Here's the thing though: it doesn't matter to you, or it shouldn't. You took advantage of the good breaks. Your team went on to take advantage of 2 more gifts in San Fran, and then earned the Super Bowl win over the Patriots.
    Be happy, that is forever.

    But don't insult our intelligence and pretend that we didn't play like schit that game and that you didn't get a lot of big breaks that changed fortunes.
    I admit we got the breaks from the refs by the way, but they couldn't compensate for dropped balls, passes, and Hail Mary touchdowns.

    No, luck on a Hail Mary is catching a tipped ball, Nicks went up and took it. The Packers were also a below average tackling team last season and the Bradshaw play wasn't "falling asleep" you just missed tackles as you did all year. Drops are part of the game, I'm too lazy/don't care enough to go back and look, but I assume the Giants had a few dropped passes as well. I'm plenty happy, I just don't like the disrespect the Giants get. Clay Matthews "we beat ourselves" is pathetic. The Giants took advantage of their opportunities, as you said, but Clay should be the last one to speak because the Giants hung 37 on his defense. Bad day? Or is it just status quo with that D? Rodgers is the only on entitled to have sour grapes over the loss because no one was giving him any help. The Giants played well enough to offset the Packers drops as well. Give 14 points off drops (which is very generous) and we still win by 3. GB defense isn't very good and they had no chance of stopping Eli and the offense that day. No disrespect intended, just having fun and defending my team :)

    If a 9-7 team that ranked 30th in defense and surrendered 300 points (more than they scored) and was ranked dead last in the run game can win the Super Bowl, anything is possible.

    :inlove:

    I'm still scratching my chin pondering the thought of who is Peyton going to throw to and who is going to protect him. First preseason game reassured my thoughts on Denver having poor receivers and a bad offensive line for a super pass heavy offense.

    I will give them time to gel. But, in all you were right. So far those receivers look like hot garbage. And they are being blamed already by fans. Of course they were also blamed even when the Colts had Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne in their primes with a top o line and James running the ball.

    And I am still torn on SD and KC and who gives Denver a run for their money.

    I kinda have been digging KC lately. Besides, they fit the last to first trend perfectly for a division.

    We're all guilty as fans for blaming someone, but they should have seen this coming...I said it before, Peyton is used to slinging it out to guys that are hard to beat like Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison as you said, and he's been behind a great offensive line his entire career. He's not at the appropriate age to have to run around to avoid pressure as it looks like is going to happen from the blitzes we seen in that one preseason game.

    Everyone Knows Vince Lombardi is the greatest Coach of the NFL. Thats why we have the Lombardi trophy not the Belichick Trophy, and most polls put Belichick towards the bottom of the top 10 coaches

    I know they're not that great yet at all, but with RG3, that might not be a bad long shot to take at 80-1.
    Throw a hunsky down, who knows, $8 Grand would be a nice little payday.
    They fricking had the Giants beaten in NY.... stupid safety at the end let Vic Cruz run past him.

    Hard to believe they got the Grape Apes at 50/1, but Tampa Bay at 500/1.... the team who just went into the HumptyDump and humiliated the home team. 50/1 & 500/1 is a huge difference, and it's not like the Vikings have a rich history of winning a Super Bowl. They never have % never will.

    I would bet on the Colts before the Skins. After all, I can't believe they are at 180/1 after beating the 6/1 Packers and 50/1 Vikings.
