    Every super bowl you can imagine,each game had an infamous GOAT,which is a guy who got burned with coverage on a WR all game or maybe a RB who fumbles in an inopportune time or a QB who throws several picks or even a kicker who missed a FG or two,ect,ect ect..

    That being said,Who will be the GOAT in tomorrow's game?

    I will go with Eli Manning who I expect to throw 3 or 4 picks,None of those will be returned for pick 6 but will be a killer as several of of them may be while the Giants are pretty deep in Pats territory....

    Theres really only been a few goats in superbowls. Basically Norwood, the Cowboys receiver, John Elway, and maybe Rich Gannon. I guess you could count entire defenses like the '94 Chargers. There really hasn't been a goat in any of the other 3 NE SBs. I guess you could say Andy Reid was the goat in the Eagles one with that poor clock management.

    If I had to pick a giant, I'd probably pick Plaxico just becuase he did a lot of talking and I'm sure he's the player BB is going to try to take away.

    Would the out of bounds kick by Carolina's kicker towards the end of the 4th quarter qualify him for GOAT status?

    Can't recall his name but he's a goat.

    Goat for this game?

    Eli --- he turned the corner and keeps turning full circle. He'll pull a Bledsoe and throw 4+ picks.

    Martz and Reid I would say. Also McNabb, you have to give him some grief for that horrible drive at the end.

    I'm fully aware of this version of the term, but The term GOAT can also mean Greatest Of All Time.

    I always thought Norwood got a bad rap... it was a 48 yard FG, on grass, and he missed it by a whisker. I mean, it ain't like he did what Vanderjagt did in that Steelers playoff game 2 years ago...

    Tomorrow's goat: Whoever is supposed to cover Randy Moss.

    C'mon. Give poor Andy & Donovan a break. They only had 6 years to install a 2 minute hurry-up offense. These things take time.

    You're probably right about norwood, especially considering he never made a field goal of over 40 on grass all season. If the Bills didn't go on to lose 4 super bowls in a row, he probably wouldn't have such a bad rap. Its not like he was cut from the team after the year. They still let him hang around. He's just luck it was the 1st super bowl that he missed that field goal and not the fourth.

    Some way or another Coughlin will be blamed for Manning making a stupid mistake that puts the game away, he will first get blamed by Tiki and then every other media outlet stupid enough to consider Tiki informed on the Giants gameplan

    In my opinion, the Pats are going to use all the crap that has come out against them in the last 24 hours as additional motivation to absolutely kick the crap out of the Giants (think Bills, Redskins, etc.), which would mean a lot of points scored. That would in turn mean whatever Giant DB gets burnt most badly on most five second highlight reels - take your pick, it could be any one of them.

    Then again, it more likely will be Eli. Once the Giants get down and are forced to pass more often, an interception is more likely - and that will probably be the signature play of tomorrow's game.
