    The Gints are no slouches. They have a LOT of momentum blowing at their backs right now. Going into Lambeau, on a sub-ZERO night game, and taking out the RED-HOT Pack, was NO gimme. They were pumped and amped way, WAY up there. And you know Coughlin and the leaders on that team are NOT going to let them deflate. They are one pumped up team.

    Having said all that, I KNOW the Pats can win. The Pats have better talent, better depth, better experience, and Belichick and Brady. Both BB and Tom have impressed me to new heights this season for their single-minded grit and determination to [size=+1]make a statement: we deserve this championship; we want this championship.[/size]

    It's going to be one fine, excellent game.

    Lol, that's called a platitude.

    "The hungrier team..."
    "Whoever makes the best halftime adjustments..."
    "Whoever has the most swagger..."
    "Whoever has more heart."


    I'm with Belichick, it just comes down to execution.

    The Patriots are clearly a better team. That will get them nothing, but who plays better in that game will obviously be dictated by who is better.
    IMO, the Giants survived 3 playoff games that looked like neither team wanted to win. Not to discredit them, because they won, but I do not consider a team 'red-hot' when their 3 wins were games that were decided by who made couldn't make plays rather than by them taking games by making plays.
    The Patriots tore through 18 games this season. The Giants beat bad team, were so-so against the better teams they played, and survived the NFC playoffs against a group of teams that was a large cut below the AFC.
    Just like it has been for quite a few seasons, the 5 best teams in the NFL were in the AFC this year.
    That does nothing to guarantee a win, but something very unusual, unpredictable, and unprecedented would have to happen for the Pats not to finish off the perfect season.

    The Patriots may be the best team ever.
    The Giants may be the worst SB team since ??????????????????

    Maybe the 1994 Chargers.

    "Wants it the most"? Nice analysis.

    How does one team want it more than the other?

    How are the Packers Red Hot? They beat Seattle and beat Detroit week 17. They got demolished by chicago week 16 and lost to dallas week 13.

    If the packers are red hot then what are the patriots?

    really what is the point of this post? the team that wants it most will win but then the pats ahve better talent? so which one is it?

    Hmmmm, do they poll the players before the game to see who wants it more? Sort of a scale from 1-10 and the player pick how much they want it? I think Junior must be close to a 10 because he hasn't won one yet. Brady maybe a 3, he'd rather be buying flowers for Giselle. Seymour maybe a 5, still searching out Chargers he can headbutt and footstomp. Rodney would be a 10, after this game hitting someone would just send him to jail. On the other side, let's see. Strahan a 10, needs the extra money to pay the ex-wife. Manning a 2, wants to go back to licking oreos with Peyton. Toomer would be a 7, it would be a ten but he and Plexiglass are too worried about the refs giving the game away. Tiki... oh wait how'd he sneak back in there?

    :rolleyes:

    I think whichever team wants it the least will win because they will be more relaxed in the face of the SB pressure cooker and be less likely to make nervous mistakes.

    If that's a platitude then there are no upsets.

    Another dumba$$ sports cliche.
    It's always said after the fact: TeamX (coincidentally the winner) wanted it more than TeamY (coincidentally the loser). It means nothing, but it sounds as though it does.

    I think whichever team that practices transcendental mediation to move beyond worldly desires the most will win this game because they will be unaffected by the spurious activity of their minds, thus allowing them to truly exist in their own bodies and focus on the moment at hand.

    .


    For those who say the Pats "can't" lose: ask BB, the other coaches, and the players.

    If they "can" lose, what decides?? Execution?? What determines execution?? Knowing one's job? If you know your job, does that get it done?

    No, getting the job done depends on one thing: the desire to get it done. Two teams are going to want to "execute", they're both going to want to "get their job done". So, who will succeed and prevail??

    The one who WANTS to execute, get their job done, when the guy opposite them is trying to execute and get HIS job done.

    Desire. Heart. That is what will decide this game. The coaches will make sure they know what to do, how to execute. It's up to the players to get it done. Desire. THAT will decide.

    The team that scores the most points is going to win.
