I don't want any support from anyone that is not a true Giants fan. Please continue to doubt and hate; that will only help to make this one of the greatest moments in New York sports history. Can you believe that the last ESPN poll had America voting 80% that the Packers would win?

The G-MEN do not need your support. I cannot stand the Red Sox, the Celtics and definitely not the cheating, cheapshot Patriots!!!! Can't wait for Jacobs to pound his shoulders into Seau's chest so that he can finally retire!!!!! This will be the most monumental upset in the history of the NFL. You gotta love it Giants fans!!!!

Please, make sure there are no firearms, sharp objects or prescription drugs in your home when the game ends on Superbowl Sunday. You are building yourself up for a cataclysmic let-down.

Eli Manning as likeable? Oh come on. Most New Yorkers hated his pathetic, pouting ways just a couple months ago. He'll be pouting again soon. Go Pats!

One more plagiarist just mailing in the same, tired "Pats are Villains" nonsense. Not one mention of the fact that in an era of "me-too" selfishness, this one team above all others in professional sports, subjugates individual ego for the good of the team. Not one mention that the Kraft family, and the players he employs, provide incredible community service to the New England community. Not one mention of the fact that "hard-hat" role players like Kevin Faulk and Tedy Bruschi, are the heart and soul of this team. Never a mention of the fact that the Jets were engaging in the same "Spygate" behavior for which they turned in the Patriots, or that the Patriots scored nearly all of their points in the first game after the camera was removed.

The most unlikeable thing about the Patriots is that media hacks, like you, continue to insist that they are unlikeable. These are not the Cincinnati Bengals, here. If the unselfish character of the Patriots represented the USA in the Olympic Games or in war, they would be rightfully beloved by all.

But it's all right if you don't agree. We fans will continue to love a coach who puts work ethic before self-promotion. We know the true story of Spygate, not the manufactured hysteria presented by media whores. Our team will continue to methodically destruct opposing teams, who leave the field, saying, "We could have/should have won this game," a sentiment echoed by a media clueless to the fact that those teams do not maintain the discipline that Mr. Belichick requires of his soldiers.

And we will smile, when you call Pats fans "obnoxious," because we see what you refuse to admit: that the good things that America admires are emblazoned in the New England Patriots.

I have no enmity towards Giants fans, and wish them well, and wish for an exciting game. But, Mr. Powell, you really ought search for some original material rather than posing as a Greg Easterbrook clone.

Every week it's the same thing. First it was the almighty Cowboys fans talking foolishness, then it was the righteous Packers fans talking foolishness, now the high and mighty Patriots fans. It took the staff from the New York Giants (research the history of the Pats prior to Bill Parcells) to build that sorry franchise and now you want to bite the hand that feeds you.

Every week Giants fans have heard that because of some sort of hierarchy in the NFL we are supposed to lose. If the Pats play the Giants like how they played the Chargers it will be a sad day in New England!!!

Believe me Pats fans the G-MEN are not the Chargers or the Jaguars, less than your absolute best efforts will ruin your undefeated dream season. We brought you into this world and we will take you out!

"Junior Seau, the biggest self-promoter in football"

Really???? Do Peyton Manning, Ocho Cinco, and T.O., know about that?

typical new yorker thinking everything starts and ends there. bob kraft is not from new york, nor is half the staff he employs. although parcells has been a great coach and taken several teams to superbowls dont forget that the pats had several good years before him and since. belichick might have worked for parcells but that only means he learned from the best. belichick could have worked for parcells in dallas or any other team and learned what he did. new york doesnt deserve any credit for why the pats are good just like boston doesnt deserve any for why the giants have been on a run since they lost to the pats.
you also forget that the giants are not as talented in the secondary as san diego, not even close to the running game of jacksonville and the pats beat all three of you, two in the playoffs and the giants in two weeks to bring home another ring.

PatsFAn111111 The Jags had the personnel to beat the Pats, but they played a passive game, that was a big mistake the Pats are too good. The chargers had a better game plan, but they had too many key injuries. The Giants are healthy enough, they will not play passive at all, and they have more than enough weapons on offense to score on that old defense (Remember we put 35 points on them in NY). Our secondary has played much better since the last meeting. Pats have reached the end of their rope!!

Belichik (the best coach in the NFL) has two weeks to prepare the Patriots (the best team in the NFL) for a second go-around with the Giants.
That is not good news for the Giants.
Giants blitz, they get killed in the short game by Faulk and Welker.
Save yourself some heartache; rent a movie and don't watch the Superbowl.

The only thing evil is that a no-talent like Shaun Powell has a job. The next time he talks to somebody he writes about will be the first time. What an industry joke.

Recently, Mike Vrabel and Richard Seymour have been tagged with this label. Maybe so.
Several years ago, during a retirement ceremony for Laurence Taylor, Q.B.Phil Simms described him, L..T.., as the greatest giant player of all time. So just to throw a few stones back at F. Bondy of the N.Y. Post, who demeaned Vrabel this week, I recall that L.T., the N.Y. version, later admitted to helping procure drugs and prostitutes for opposing players when they came to play the giants in an effort to assist in their game performance.

Go Pats
