after 2 ots the refs decide to have a contest on who can connect on the most 50 yard fgs to win the game the team that hits the best out of 3 kicks would win.

in reality i dont know who i want to win

A decline in quality, yeah, but the entire NFL had a decline in quality this year, so, whatever, it should be fun.

apparantly some nevergonnawin presidential candidate is going to run anti-abortion ads with graphic images of fetuses during the superbowl, so we've got that going for us.

Obama's really taking it a different direction this time around...

I couldn't decide during the SF v. NYG game whether I was more scared of the pass rush and WR's of the Giants or the defense as a whole (and Vernon Davis) of the 49'ers. Both very good teams and a very tough matchup for the Patriots.


The thing will be whether we can stop the WR's and still score points with their pass rush in Brady's face. I really feel like we will win it, this Giants team isn't perfect and Belichick has 2 weeks to look at what worked against us in the last Super Bowl (and this season) and figure it out.


I really hope Brady can play well, unlike today, but I put my faith in Belichick to outcoach and outscheme. The fact that we know what doesn't work from two different games means he has a lot to work with.

Talent wise, these teams are even, with the horrible secondary of the Patriots a weakness to the strength of the Giants WR, the horrible Giants LB to the strength of the Pats TE, and the great pass rush against a great offensive line.

That is what it boils down to for me... they lost Strahan but added JPP, we lost nobody and added a RG in Waters, a RT in Vollmer or Solder, a great backup in Vollmer/Solder (I don't know who is starting now) and Cannon.

I just hope Gronk is healthy.

I'm pretty pumped about this match-up and Super Bowl! Going to be hard to wait the two weeks for it to kick off for sure. Nice to see the two teams playing the best at the end of the year successfully navigate the post-season to meet up in the big game. Plus, we get to see two future Hall of Fame QBs do battle! This is going to be the best! =D>

I think it's far more dynamic than that. That was four years ago. Things have changed.

Things like, Harrison, Bruschi, Seymour, Thomas, Meriweather, Seau, Samuel, Vrabel, missing from the lineup.

Things like the Giants secondary improving, personnel wise.

Patriots passing game evolving... or probably devolving over that period of time...

It could be a completely different style of game. Well, at least it's not going to be 17-14. I'll put it that way.

I've already said it in another thread, but I'll repeat it here: After the Packers were eliminated I didn't care who got in or won...as long as it's not the Patriots. The Ravens let me down by not winning today, but I have enough confidence in the Giants that I think they can win this one going away.

I'll post a score prediction after I hear more regarding Gronk's injury.

Quote me correctly please:
Talent wise, these teams are even, with the horrible secondary of the Patriots a weakness to the strength of the Giants WR, the horrible Giants LB to the strength of the Pats TE, and the great pass rush against a great offensive line.

That is what it boils down to for me... they lost Strahan but added JPP, we lost nobody and added a RG in Waters, a RT in Vollmer or Solder, a great backup in Vollmer/Solder (I don't know who is starting now) and Cannon.


Clearly, I know the personnel on both teams and they are completely different-- I don't think a single starter from the NE DBs, Giants WRs or Pats TE's are the same. That is 9 different players, and I think 3 of the 4 Giants LB's are different.

What I was saying was that what it boils down to is the Pass rush v. Offensive line-- and of that, the Giants lost Strahan but gained JPP (younger and better)... Patriots added a RG, RT and two backups in Vollmer and Cannon. (Vollmer was a scratch today, not sure what his deal is, haven't paid attention).


and I stick with that being the key to the game. Whoever wins in the trenches wins the game.
