1) No Michael Strahan - Mike was the leader of that defense and really gave it all and those around him played better just with him being in there. 2) No Koppen - Dan was a decent center but in that SB Tuck repeatedly came rushing between the tackles and got to Brady....I think Connolly and even Wendell are better at pass blocking than Dan was. 3) Gronkowski,Hernandez,Branch and Welker are arguably a better overall receiving corps than Moss,Welker,Gaffney and Stallworth and the Giants cant simply double anyone because that leaves at least one man open every passing play. 4) No dreck in the backfield like Phony Maroney - Teams respect a hard runner like BJGE more than the dancing fool we had in 2007..... BJGE made a statement yesterday to respect the run because he will burn you if you don't. 5) Red Zone Defense is much better than it was in 2007 - I think the way this defense is made,Eli doesn't get that easy toss to Plaxico to end the game 6) Our linebackers are younger,faster and likely not to wear down late in the SB like it looked in 2007 7) Tom Brady wants revenge over the Giants ruining what might have been the greatest season ever. 8) You don't beat a Belichick/Brady team 3 times in a row......I do not believe that a single team has ever had a 3 game win streak against the Pats since Belichick arrived and the Giants won the last 2 meetings. 9) No 9-7 team ever won the Super Bowl 10) Brady is well known to play extremely well in roofed stadiums...I don't believe the Cardinals stadium in 2007 had a roof. any more reasons?...please feel free to add any or disagree with anything I posted I like our chances in this game......A Lot...and this comes from a very Pessimistic sports fan.
