Too bad for AD, but Harrison being outjumped on that pass- that one will stick with him. There's a big lid on Pats fans self righteousness. The cheaters got beat, and I think that is only fair. Way to go New York !!! You desoive it !!! Btw,Plax, you dont look so stupid now...

Belicheat & the Pats are the most classless losers I have ever seen. They couldn't even stay on the field until the game was finished. Classless.

Belicjick answered 7 questions and stepped away from the mike! WOW, what a way to take it like a man. Parcells would have answered more questions, Coughlin would have done it too.

Arrogance killed the Patriots.

Damn fine game to watch and I'm glad the Giants won. I always felt a little bit - a little bid mind you - sorry for them they way the Ravens had beaten' the S$!# out of them in SB XXXV. That was a real fun SB to watch :-)
Go Ravens. Next Year Baby, ALL THE WAY!!!

I couldn't believe that Belichick came onto the field before the game was over and then left before the last play. He is an egotistical piece of garbage and he showed on national television that he is incapable of any humility.

I'm happy for the Giants, and this hopefully, is a good transition to the offseason where the Patriots antics of breaking and bending the rules is thoroughly investigated.

I am tired of hearing them compared to other football dynasties that did things the right way, like the Cowboys, the Niners, and the Steelers. Those are dynasties, not the Patriots. The whole team is classless from top to bottom.

Did Brady stick around to congratulate Manning and the other Giants?

Where's Patsfan1111 ? You called me a fool to suggest that the Giants would hold the Pats to 2 touchdowns and win. Other people made jokes about my user name saying "you are raving mad". Don't hide...come out and admit you were wrong. Okay Baltimore let us talk draft. For most of the season I was big on Matt Ryan, but this kid from Delaware (Flacco) is impressive and might be available in rounds 2 or 3 (although I hear the Bears and Dolphins love him too). At 6-6 230 he reminds me of Carson Palmer but can move like Ben Roethlisberger. He has the strongest arm coming out of college, great mechanics, quick release, but at times inaccurate. Would you gamble to see if he is still around in 2 or 3 and take a top corner or Desean Jackson(wr)or draft Ryan who the team has coveted for awhile?

While I dont really hate the Patriots, I find it ironic that , I believe it was Burress, predicted a 21-17 victory, and Brady scoffed at him. "Give us a little credit, we can score more than that" Actually, you scored less. And outside some bogus plays and calls, Baltimore would have beaten you too. I will give credit where credit is due, the Patriots were definitely a good team. But kudos to the Giants. You had to see this coming. They beat two other very good teams on the road in the playoffs. They were just on a roll, and sometimes, thats what it takes.

Pats coach will be villified for the rest of his career for making so many bad decisions in the SB game. Always thought he was the best until this game. Team that wanted it the most always wins. Looked like R Harrison didn't take his vitamins before the game. Eli made many sportswriters eat their words from earler in the season.Way to go Giants.

And can some one answer this... I am not being sarcastic, I would like a straight answer...since when do do challenege a non called penalty? THAT alone had me rooting for the Giants. I have never seen that done. Not arguing it has not happened, but this was the first I saw it. How do you argue to the refs they didnt call a penalty? I dont get that.

The only people who were "shocked" at the Giants victory were the mass media "experts" who were so far up Brady's butt they couldn't see that the Pats were an over-hyped media creation. Philly almost beat them. The Ravens almost beat them. And the Giants played them tough in an otherwise meaningless game. The Pats failed to dominate ANYBODY in the last few weeks of the season, and throughout the playoffs.

Major props to the Giants -- Spagnuolo, Coughlin, Gilbride, Manning & his O-line, Strahan and the D-Line, Burress, Tyree Bradshaw, & Boss and the rest of the team. They played as a team and took care of business. One of the best Super Bowls of all time, and one of the best officiated games as well. There were no "funny calls", and the refs let em play, and the best team won.

I left out Smith, who played a hell of a game for a rookie, even with some of his drops. And Toomer made some clutch catches as well. And while Jacobs didn't have a great game, he kept on pounding the rock all game long.

Great season of football. It takes 2 great teams to play a great championship game and that's what we had yesterday. Football at its best. The Giants played great and deserved the win. Well what do I do now that football is over. Life will be good but just not as forfilling. Thanks to all the good teams. The Cowboys, Chargers, Kolts, Giants, Jacksonville, but most of all the Patriots. They played with class in winning and in there loss yesterday. Sadly the real winners are the crummy low class '72 Miami team. Well that's football. On any given Sunday. Thanks for all the great posts. Hope to here from all of you next year. Go Ravens!
