    Re: Giants win!!

    All I can say is that the hard-working, get no respect, NY Giants defense, stood up and made NY proud! They didn't give in to the hype of 19-0, they wanted to prove that DEFENSE wins championships, and this one certainly did.

    I will give credit where credit is due, Eli has matured immensely over the last 5 weeks, and although I thought Justin Tuck should have been the MVP, I gotta give Eli the credit he deserves. To drive twice in the fourth quarter against the "Team of Destiny" just goes to show you how much he has grown up.

    I agree. His career has been filled with inconsistency, and these guys really woke up after Week 3 and busted their butts. Eli is a little slow, I think. But he pulled it off. No one can say it was luck.

    Very happy Giants fan here ! I spent this weekend in MA., so last nights win was all the more sweeter for me. I think NE felt it was destined to win, and just did not take NYG seriously. People in MA. were really down today, I could only describe it as funeral like.

    I can't blame his reaction. It's so shocking that his team would lose the way that they did that I can understnad him just wandering off like that. He did walkover and congratulate the Giants team before walking off, though.
    I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. The clock had originally run out and I don't think he knew they put a second on thc clock. With the noise and the fact he has no personality whatsoever I don't his actions were meant as disrespect.

    Anyone who goes to the parade enjoy!

    I think Eli still has a lot of unfulfilled potential. He's been reminding Denver fans just a bit of John Elway ever since the Giants beat us by one point on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive a couple of years ago. And he has an excellent surrounding cast, for the most part.

    I think the most stunning turnaround was Tom Coughlin. At the beginning of the season, I was saying that the Giants weren't going to be successful until they overhauled their coaching staff...I can't say I'm upset to be proven wrong...

    I'm just proud of myself only being 45 minutes late to work today!!! LOL!!! Just simply amazing and as a
    lifelong Giants fan this sure wipes away many a bad memory since the last Super Bowl victory.
    And the parade should be amazing. Is this the first time we've had a Canyon of Heroes parade for a Super
    Bowl winner (Jets?). I know after one of the Giant bowl victories then Mayor Ed Koch said no way since the team was from Jersey. Big thumbs up for Bloomberg for planning this parade!!!!
    YEAH Big BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I was not sure. My impression was that he was running onto the field and trying to get everyone off so that they could play the final :01. I guess I misinterpreted.

    And Mike, yep ,that is a GREAT clip. I don;'t care whether you enjoy football or not. AS far as any sports go, that was a great catch.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
