SB XLV1

Round 2 of the hopeful end of a saga.  2007 Tom Brady and the Patriots were poised to make history.  Greatness had already been attained by 3 prior SB wins.  In the way were Eli Manning and a pesky Giant team.  Today the Patriots correct a fluke and hopefully Madonna keeps her clothes on.  The Giants are still pesky but the win swings to the Patriots this time.  No humiliating run away victory but solid, boring and Bradyesque.  Prediction Patriots 33 Giants 23.  The Twin Towers of Gronkowski and Hernandez are too much for this Giant team or any NFL team.  Keeping Tom Brady off the field with 3 and outs or a bunch of turnovers just not going to happen and is really the Giants only hope.

SB XLV1

I will have my crow now NY warm please.  No excuses the Giants wanted it more and kept Brady off the field and effectively ran the ball.  Running the ball, a fundamental still needed for SB Championships, a fundamental the Patriots have been lacking the last few years.  Congragulations to the Giants and their fans.  Patriots be looking for a RB in the draft or via free agency.  As anemic as the Giants regular season run game was when it counted most the Giants could eat clock, run the ball and you couldn't.  That was the difference.  Until that difference is addresed adequately the Patriots will get close but not close the deal, no matter who is standing in the pocket with 7 seconds to throw.

SB XLV1

Silk you are good on the history but this is a very defensively weak Patriots team with an aging Tom Brady.  Any kind of pass rush generated by the Giants today is the key to another Giants victory.  The Patriots have no running game to speak of and the Giants can stike quick or eat clock.  Pick your poison.  The Giants win again and Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning head to the HOF along with Belichik and Brady.  Giants 26 Patriots 24.
