    Good. The giants fans, who have universally handled SB 42 like total asswipes, should only know pain next year with their team.

    Part of me really wishes the Giants return to the SB for a rematch, but your scenario is more likely. I can't believe this perennially mediocre franchise pulled a month of championship football out of their butts.

    Honestly, if the Giants makes the playoffs, it will be an achievement. I expect the Giants to be a solid team for some time, but I wouldn't be surprised if this season was troublesome for them.

    Giants reminds me of the Colts. I can't be surprised because Eli is Peyton's brother. After Giants defeated Pats, we see the following things:

    1-Coughlin is still a HC even though every NY fans and medias WANTED to see him FIRED last year.
    2-Their D coordinator is the HIGHEST PAID person in NFL.
    3-Tyree wanted Harrison to put some words in his new book. I'm sure he met somebody who influenced his spiritiual and work too. Why Harrison.? Harrison is a Pats player. It's really special for him! LOL
    4-Giants's players don't want to practice UNTIL they receive a new contract.

    It's satisfying for them to beat Pats and they don't give a sh!t from now on.

    Giants will return to earth and get beat by Tampa
    Geen Bay won't show

    Three years ago Burress signed a six-year contract for $25 million. He got a contract with $8.25 million in guaranteed bonuses, paying $11.38 million in the first two years and $14.6 million in the first three years (through this season). So it looks like he's scheduled to make about $3.2 million this year and about $3.5 per year for each of the next three years. It's as if he's looking at those numbers and conveniently forgetting the $5 million signing bonus from 2005 and the $3.25 roster bonus in the spring of 2006.

    Oh, and surprise, surprise, his agent is Drew Rosenhaus.

    It just shows these guys aren't about the money the way they handle money. LMAO you call that a contract when you sitting out with 3 years left on it?

    I don't think he cares about a new deal. He just doesn't want to practice. He doesn't need to be in shape to be thrown jump balls all game.

    i think the giants are a borderline playoff team at this point, and if Burress does hold out they will finish at best 3rd in the east.

    yes they have...the media wanted the coach fired and eli manning off the team early in the season. now all of a sudden they are both amazing. and the giants fans who never were heard from now are all over the place. same with the people who said the giants would win...i dont think i talked to one person who picked the giants in that game until after it was over. well ok i did talk to one but that was during the game......

    Im sure other teams were saying the same thing about Asante this time leat year

    Sadly greed is rife in this sport ... very rare to have team loyalty which makes Brady's salary sacrifices even more admirable

    If they lose Burress....they are not making playoffs unless they get another major reciever.

    I agree....with the loss of Strahan and possibly Shockey....they will go at best 8-8....

    Maybe we should all pass a hat for poor Tom Brady.

    Another major,tall receiver. Plax was a major reason for Eli's success too-I'm not sure which would be better...beating the Giants in the SB or watching them just sort of fade away:D
