    don't get too carried away saying it's over. it was those same giants that upset 9ers in san fran to get in super bowl 25. where they promptly upset the "can't miss" bills too in the wide right game. give coughlin & co 2 weeks to prepare and they should be able to come up with a good game plan. i'm not saying we shouldn't be the favorites, but don't for a minute do a "bills" and take this team lightly.

    All that matters is that the Patriots don't take the Giants lightly. They won't.

    As for the fans, the Pats just won. I think it's OK for everyone to enjoy it for a little while before we need to get all worked up about the Giants. The game is in two weeks, so relax.

    Are people taking them lightly? First of all, what does it matter what a team 17 years ago did? Second of all, it's not unfair to observe the ways in which we match up well with them, or correctly point out the Pats should be favored.

    We've played enough close games over the latter half of the season and the playoffs, that I think most serious fans aren't about to sleep on any opponent at this point. Besides, all non-bandwagoners remember a plucky little underdog which upset the Greatest Show on Turf, so I think most will approach it with the correct amount of perspective.

    People keep bringing up the Bills and Rams being upset in the Super Bowl as if it has any bearing on the Pats. If there is any similarity, it's that the Coach of those teams was Bill Belichick, and he's not coaching for the NY Giants...anymore.

    "Coach Coughlen, I coached with Bill Belichick: I know Bill Belichick; Bill Belichick is a friend of mine. Coach Coughlen...you're no Bill Belichick.

    The common thread between the Giants' SB champs and the NE SB champs is on our sideline. I like our chances.

    Time for you to come clean. There is no such thing as a football fan living in Newton. Where do you REALLY live?

    You again?!? Why can't you just enjoy a win for one day? Jeez you're the same idiot who was lamenting about how the Pats would get complacent and lose in the playoffs if WE didn't talk about improvements. Pessemisim coming out already.

    The Giants and Bills were both 13-3, it wasn't a big mismatch coming into the game.

    How on earth does a game from 17 years ago play into what's happening now? If you're just trying to brace yourself for a potential upset, fine, but do it alone by talking to yourself in the bedroom mirror. I think most Pats fans would like to enjoy winning the AFC Championship, at least for a day or two. :)

    The Patriots' defense is playing better and the run game is stronger than in Week 17. They held one of the best running offenses in check (Jax) and maintained a 9:13 drive to salt away the game vs. SD's vaunted defense.

    While the Giants tried to give the game away to GB (dropped passes, fumbled INT, missed FG's) Lord Favre had the biggest giveaway. The Pats have beaten the Giants this year and have the means to do it again. Relax a bit, okay? ;)

    The Bills played a decent game that day but they made a major error if I remember right. Hostetler killed them especially on 3rd downs...he ran a bit also.

    Something tells me neither coach is going to be reviewing film from SB 25 in preparing for this game.

    But there was this game a few weeks back, in which at one point the Patriots were trailing by 12 points. If the Giants play as well as that team did in the first half we could be in trouble.

    Giants beat a better team on the road yesterday than we beat at home to get in the Super Bowl. Think about that

    I'd much rather be at home against a gimpy Rivers and Gates, without LT, than be on the road in Green Bay against a healthy Favre. If you don't see that you no nothing about football

    Wow, you waited all of 5 hours to start worring about something new. The Giants beat a team that also lost twice to the Bears this year. Think about that!

    Wow. You've lost it. I said this in another thread, but here goes:

    Packers kept Giants scoring drive alive with third-down penalties, including a boneheaded roughing the passer play.
    Packers missed two chances to recover a fumble at the end of regulation.
    Packers threw an awful interception in overtime.

    I, for one, was begging for the Pack to win because I knew the Pats would score at will against them. I don't know how you can say they were better than San Diego. Do you believe the Chargers would lose to the Packers? :confused:

    Listen, if you want to convince yourself that the Patriots will lose, have fun. Scream it from the mountaintops. But from now on you can avoid sharing.

    1. I have forgotten more football than you know.

    2. I KNOW that KNOW is not spelled NO.

    A healthy Favre still throws stupid picks. Manning wasn't pressured. Relax.
