I knew brady and co could make that drive happen and seal it off and would have bet 1million (that i don't have
) that there was no way Eli could mount a scoring drive-
but he did....and now its in the history books
But hailing Eli as better than brady or even the MVP is questionable...i mean dude was razzled the whole game...Tyree won that for them...Eli felt that pressure got out of it then launched a prayer into the air with Tyree, Harrison and at least 2 other patriots in the area...Tyree and Harrison fought that one out and Tyree won it...it happens...call it luck, destiny whatever...its the same thing thats been on the patriots side for years so as a fan i cant even really be mad at it-
Players of the game were def:
the whole Giants front line - only way to beat the pats was to pressure/rush Brady...def the game breaker...Giants O wasnt producing and if Brady got his typical pocket time he woulda picked that secondary apart
Wes Welker - the new and improved Troy Brown of the pats
Harrison - left it all on the field...dude was in/around every play and i seriously don't know where that D would be without him
Kevin Faulk - clutch...dudes been a silent warrior here for years...hope he gets a nice check for 09
and thats my rant-
did we watch the same game?
Maybe you should upgrade your tv at home from this
what I watched it on last night (generic pic)
That whole 85 drive was amazing.
Tyree catching it was incredible, but Manning not dropping?
Mid season he would have ran backwards and prob lost 20 yards but not this game. Manning did a great job and deserved MVP for sure.
He just helped beat the Cowboys, Packers, and now the DEFEATED patriots. Give the kid a break
And to the haters of the actual game, you just watched the PATRIOTS who I dont know if you remember were undefeated and hyped up to be the best franchise team ever in superbowl, LOSE to the Giants, who 70% of the Nation thought they would lose.
The Giants held their ground. It was a low scoring game because while Patriots defense is always good, Giants were just a little better.
And the suspense? All thoughtout the game
