I keep hearing about how "upbeat" the Giants were in the lockerroom after their 38-35 loss to the Patriots in the regular-season finale, and how it fueled their playoff run. What does this say about the New Yorkers' mental state? HELLO GIANTS! IT WAS A LOSS, FOLKS! I was at the game and recall the radio broadcaster interviewing players afterward, asking if they felt it was a moral victory staying with the Patriots. Only Strahan and Toomer talked sense claiming there's nothing to rejoice about from a loss. Arguably, without two personal fouls by the Patriots (Moss's before the kickoff runback and Rodney's during the Giants' last touchdown drive), that game wouldn't have been close. These two teams are on different levels. I think the Giants will play hard in the Super Bowl, but are more happy just to be there while the Patriots are focused on finishing the job they started.
