    He was hurried and knocked down plenty in XLVI but outside of maybe the AFCCG against Denver I can't recall him taking a more ferocious beating than he did in XLII

    No more than shades. Giants fell back into mediocrity whereas the Pats were the start of a dynasty. For the Patriots "upset" (in hindsight it's clear they had the core of an elite team) a good team actually won. For the Giants upset, the passage of time showed it was really more of a flukey run with a fluke win at the end.

    I couldn’t disagree more. As I said before that giants team was a very good team. And they were also very good the next year. Coughlin was a great head coach. It’s no fluke they won. The pats weren’t the same team they had been in the first half of that year. They almost beat us in the last week of the year. It wasn’t a fluke

    Nothing flukey about the 2007 Giants D, Brady wasn't the only QB that had the bruises to prove it

    I can't believe how many people have rushed to defend the Giants here. And I don't say that because I expect people to have spite for them, but because they really were just a mediocre team who got lucky (with the catch and a lack of holdings calls) to win. But if you want to crown them, crown them.

    Doesn’t matter if we want to crown them or not. They are the champions for that season.

    Calling them a mediocre team is just wrong on so many levels.

    There was nothing mediocre about that pass rush.

    Pats Vs Seahawks was more exciting IMO. The pats/falcons game sucked until the pats comeback started very late in the game. Until then it was just a blowout. Most exciting finish but the game as a whole? Nah.

    Yeah, nothing’s coming to mind for me, either. I can only remember the one before and the one after.

    Hand the ball to Martin (who was gashing the Packers in the first half), and ffs put someone on the right side to help Max Lane.

    You are correct.

    The Giants were mediocre at best. They did not beat a team with a winning record until the playoffs. They were the fifth seed.

    From Wiki: "In fact, based on regular season performance, the 2007 New York Giants were the worst team to ever reach a Super Bowl, a curiosity later surpassed when the 2011 New York Giants won Super Bowl XLVI to become the first team with a negative point differential to win a Super Bowl."

    They did have a very good pass rush. And, even the Patriots players afterward expressed grudging admiration and respect for Manning, who always has played in the shadow of his older brother.

    And Tom Coughlin has always been an outstanding coach. The front office deserves credit for keeping him, signing him to a one-year contract after the collapse in 2006.

    But of course, overall the Giants remain a despicable, lousy excuse for a franchise. Their deplorable behavior upon arriving in Arizona for the game, their disgusting arrogance and lusty acceptance of the ridiculous cheating accusations against the Patriots merely added to a history that makes them totally unrootable for any person with a brain or moral compass.

    Would've been historically great, and revered here forever, if Berry hadn't benched hometown hero Flutie instead of giving him a chance to finish it off. We had Stephens, still a top defense and already beat the Bengals that year. Could've spoiled Walsh's last game and reached the promised land before the Sullivan financial house of cards finally, inevitably came crashing down to Earth.

    Its amazing how many people on here censure Harbaugh for blaming and whining about the officiating when his team loses but yet turn around and exhibit said behaviour when the Pats lose. Its no wonder people hate us so much....

    I'm just glad at least Belichick & co own up to their losses and take respobsibility for them. I'd hate to have a Harbaugh as a coach.

    Pats-Seahawks was the most exciting finish ever imo. Pats-Falcons is 2nd, but everyone knew once Brady got the ball first in OT, it was over
