After SB 36 people thought it a huge upset the 11-5 Patriots knocked off the Rams and it wasnt until the next year and then the following year that they showed it was no fluke, that the Patriots may have been 11-5, but starting from the time they were 5-5, they really were the best team. Similarly i think i have been wrong about the Super Bowl. I thought the Patriots had no business losing to the Giants. The fact that the Giants caught their stride late in the season, that they had won all those road games in a row, that they had gone into Dallas and Green Bay and won, that the Patriots were playing so-so down the stretch, all that was lost in the pain of the loss. But this year the Giants have shown they really were that good all along. They are the best team in football right now, they exposed many of the Patriots weaknesses in the SB, long before Brady went down in week one this year, and now I can almost take solace in the fact that on that day in Phoenix, the best team truly won. the 2007 Giants were better than the 2007 Patriots, they deserved that championship, and the Patriots didnt "blow it", they just got beat. I can live with that.
