    Pro football = QUARTERBACKS QUARTERBACKS QUARTERBACKS

    And that's all that matters now. defense is completely irrelevant.

    Proof of this is shown by the fact that the Giants did not WANT to score the game winning TD when they did - and New England WANTED them to score it. If the Giants had any confidence at all in their defense, they would have had the proper attitude towards scoring - as soon as possible and as many points possible at once.

    your knowledge, or lack thereof, of football is showing by this post.
    The object of football is to win....not always to score.
    Toward the end of the game, When a team has the lead and the ball, they go into clock management mode. Their goal is not to score...but to run out the clock.
    Last nite was a classic example of strategy by both teams....The Pats knew the game was over if the giants could run the clock down to 5 seconds before a chip shot feild goal.....and the Giants were well aware that it is better to hold the ball than to give the ball to an experienced QB like Brady.
    Most that dont know football would find fault in the strategy....but most that know football, would looked at what took place last night in the last 2 minutes as a chess game.
    I bet you see NASCAR as nothing more than a bunch of cars turning left too.....am I correct?

    That was about the worst football game I've ever seen to be called a Super Bowl. High schools could have played better.

    Don't know what game you watched. Good defensive football, not too many penalties, not too many turnovers
    Close game not decided until the final play

    One of the better Superbowls

    That's your story. You tell it any way you want to tell it. My opinion is the game reeked of so-so playing and not much talent shown.

    actually, that is the story of last nightrs game.
    Outstanding quarterback stats.
    Only 1 turnover
    Low amount of penalties
    Great 2 minute strategy
    And those are documented facts...
    Now...as for additonal opinion...
    A throw by manning and a catch by manningham that will go down as one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history.
    2 future hall of fame coaches and QB's

    OK...I backed it up as being a great game...with facts and additional opinion.
    now your turn to back it up that it was no better than 2 high school teams playing

    Well done, jarhead! It was an excellent Super Bowl. The only surprise to me was that the Patriots defense didn't give up 30+ points.

    The Patriots just can't seem to figure out the Giants. Period.

    Wow, gee whillickers, I never thought of that, you really do know a lot about football. You must be a coach.

    What you mean is the Giants trusted their field goal kicker miles further than they trusted their defense - because, as I said, defense is dead.


    Where did I find fault in the strategy Mr. Genius? Did I ever disagree with it? If you've got a piss poor shitty defense, its obviously the right strategy, it doesn't take a football genius like yourself to figure that one out.
