    After the Pats beat the Ravens - I was relieved and happy! Replayed the game again and watched in delight. Then at around 11pm or so when I found out that we will be facing the Giants - my tension and stress started. I couldn't enjoy even 1 second of the 2 week wait. In the beginning I was waiting for the SuperBowl to come quickly and win it and get over with it. Then as the days were slowly approaching - i started getting that naucious feeling and actually just wanted the SuperBowl to come and go - no matter what happens! Ofcourse wanted the Pats to win but also wanted to relieve my stress. It was getting too much. In addition I live in NJ and as you can imagine it was everything Giants Giants Giants. My son had a bday party that day and ofcourse everyone was wearing Giants jerseys. However these 2 other boys were wearing Brady jerseys and the other kids were giving them a hard time. Even some adults were "booing" the little kids. Also the amount of confidence these kids and their parents had about beating the Pats was amazing. They even consoled with me there on the Pats losing even before the game had started.

    Anyways - the game happened and I so so so so so so was expecting us to win and shut these annoying NYG fans up. I even had my Facebook status ready to go! We did a family prayer - my wife and two kids - praying for our Pats to win. After the loss - I was gutted!!!!!! It was an empty feeling and the night was horrible and going to work was the toughest. Saw cars with NYG flags, people wearing jerseys and while having lunch - seeing Guber Manning giving his PC and seeing highlights of the game made me want to puke. It's so tough living in this area and having to go through all this for the SECOND time and now again the parade is tomorrow and ofcourse wall to wall coverage. That's why even though I am so thankful for what the Pats have given me - but at the same time losing three times in the past 5 years to NY teams in the playoffs has really put me in tough situations living in this area. Its not been easy.

    However I am just glad that this is over and I hope i can get over it Haven't put on the tv as living in the Nj/NY area - any channel you put on will be about the NYG. Can't believe these scum bags have won 2 SBowls against us. I was so so ready to gloat but again had to congratulate my NY colleagues and friends who ofcourse were gloating away. In 2008 I thought that was a one off but to happen again - not sure how to deal with it again! It's so heart breaking.

    Sad thing is that my Pats lost it. They had so many chances but didn't execute. They had chances to shut these punks up but didn't. I love Welker and Brady but if you drop that crucial pass and give a safety on the first play - come on man! What was going on.

    Anyways - this is my state right now and it's not good but hopefully we win a few more SBowls the next few years but atleast till next season starts - this is going to haunt me - even in the slightest way - it will be there.......ESP being reminded of it every day living here.

    Oh well.....c'est la vie but atleast it's OVER!

    I feel your frustration. I don't live in NY but the feeling of the loss is no different.

    Tough to lose two SB's to the Giants...I have family that are Giants fans. We won't get to play them anytime soon unless it's another Super Bowl.

    I do feel good about the off-season. I believe with the cap space the team will have (upwards of 20 million) and the sting of this loss coupled with an awareness that you're either getting better or worse, Belichick and Kraft will bring in legitimate high end talent in free agency or via trade. Then they'll draft with a purpose in mind.

    I feel that we could be a better team the next two seasons then we saw this year.

    Well said, I'm with you all the way. I felt every feeling you felt as soon as I saw that infamous SF fumbled punt in OT. When the Giants won that game I became a bag of nerves, it was the worst nightmare playing itself out. I wanted the Niners to win that game so bad and one blunder stole that from us. All the excitement I got from the Raven win went right down the crapper after learning our fateful meeting with Eli again.

    The stress leading up to the game was overwhelming at times. I got worked up while sitting at work, worked up while on the treadmill, worked up while watching my kid's hoop game. I kept thinking, crap it's one day closer. I cringed at every Giant interview I saw leading up to the game. Those infamous white game jerseys with the red numbers rose my blood pressure as soon as I saw them on tv. And then the day and night were here. It was time to face the fear. Sure enough, the nightmare plays itself out. Down 9-0 off went the TV, paced around for a while, got a bite to eat, killed some time. Get back to the TV, things are looking up 10-9 at the half. Happy at this point knowing we're getting the ball to start the 2nd half. Elated now, up 17-9, feeling great, yet still anxious, why, well Goober was still out there. OK, long bend but don't break drive, cool a FG, it's still 17-12, things are cool, things are ok, the offense is getting it's confidence, we're getting the ball back. Let's just go back down and atleast get that FG back. Oh crap, it's happening, we're punting the ball back to Goober only up 5. Off goes the TV. More pacing, threw in some laundry, tv still not on. I can't find the strength to even turn it back on. Now it's 9:30, has to be close to the end. Giants are in the redzone we're up 2, time is ticking away. I sat, I teared up and accepted the fact that we weren't going to win it after the Giant TD. I keep the strength up and watch the final drive knowing in my heart it wasn't going to happen. The last heave by Brady, it's tipped, Gronk is there, I scream, the ball hits the turf, it's over. It's over.

    My insides are ripped apart. Eli did it to us again, that SOB did it to us again.

    No sleep, road map eyes all day at work. Glum faces on the road to work and at work. So damn empty. The nightmare played itself out.

    But like you said, atleast it's over, atleast it's over. Let the healing begin.

    Seasons come and go bro........just think in 8 months we'll be getting ready for this intro. for a run at #6 appearance in Brady era. Yes Brady could easily have 5 rings, or could be 1-4. Enjoy the fact NE is relevant in the NFL with a powerbroker of an owner with CLASS, who has given us 16 winning seasons in his 18 years.

    I still remember the day we got Parcells, drafted Drew Bledsoe and football in NE was relevant. In a blink of an eye 18 years have passed, and oh by the way for last 15 years I've lived in Michigan after moving from Mass, a short10 minute drive to the Uof M BIG HOUSE where Brady guided the team to 20-5 record.

    Despite the mediots, Brady is a winner whose legacy will never be tainted, be it in NE or here in GO BLUE country.

    That freaking picture is funny as hell I have been laughing over it all day.

    I feel better today. This wasn't a shot at immortality or a loss to a hated rival. It was a hard fought Super Bowl that came to the last play and a game we shouldn't have been in anyway. The rebuild is almost done and the Elway-esqe Super Bowls are coming I really believe it.
