Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

Free agency should start tomorrow, that would end tampering.

They score a TD on that drive. And waste another 2 mins of the clock at least.

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

Manningham made the catch and Welker didnt...both were game changers. Those will the be plays i remember most from this game. The Welker non-catch was a flat out drop.

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

I think this game signifies the importance of getting a franchise qb. Which is why I don't want to settle for Orton/Tannehill, or whatever pair of 2nd rate qb's is available. I mean when was the last time a team won a Super Bowl without a franchise guy at qb? Baltimore with Trent Dilfer? The NFL today is set up for elite quarterbacks to succeed, not just in the regular season but in the SB. If Luck or RG3 is that guy, than we need to go get him. No more settling for 2nd best.

Perhaps, but this isn't fact.

Maybe Brady throws a pick.

This about sums up how a lot of us are feeling and why Shanahan said at the end of the season that we are close.

The New York Giants are Off to the Super Bowl, So What Does That Say About the Redskins? | Redskins 101

If you want to be a smart ass about it it simply means that the Redskins beat the NFC Champions twice (last season they beat the Green Bay Packers as well), but I think it means a little more than that.

This wasn't like last season where the Redskins beat the Packers early on before the Aaron Rodgers machine was up and running at full capacity. No the Redskins beat the Giants twice, decisively.

In the greater scheme of things it makes Rex Grossman's start of the season prediction of the Redskins winning the NFC East seem like it could have been true with a bounce here and a call there.

Don't get me wrong 5-11 is a terrible record and in all honesty I shouldn't even be considering this a possibility but the Redskins were not as bad as their record. The team's two quarterbacks maybe, but not the entire team.

If you compare the Giants and the Redskins you'll see strikingly similar teams. Both have excellent defenses that keep teams out of the endzone and could force timely turnovers to give their respective offenses a chance late in games.

They both have an excellent tandem of running backs who compliment each other very well. The Giants have the edge at wide receiver (but just barely) and the Redskins have the edge at tight end.

So where is the different between the 9-7 Giants who won the division and the 5-11 Redskins who swept the Giants?

Surprise, surprise it's at quite possibly the more important position on the field, the quarterback.

The Giants have Eli Manning who at times can look a little Rex-ish but can also mimic his older brother in clutch situations . And then you have the Redskins who have Rex Grossman and John Beck.

I've been saying this for the past six or seven seasons now, "if the Redskins have had an honest to god franchise quarterback they'd be a threat in the NFC."

That isn't to say they'd be Super Bowl bound, but I think the Giants have proven (twice now) that all you need to do is get into the playoffs and anything can happen.

Yeah, but we beat Packers last year, and the Giants twice this year. We're one QB away from getting our next appearance (Hey Peyton, are you gonna let your little brother show you up like this?

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

I feel conflicted. It's hard to think of the Giants as a good team after watching them. But, in the end, they won, and they'll get the ring. Doesn't matter about anything else.

Considering he had to twist his body nearly all the way around because the ball was thrown behind him, I wouldn't put that all on Welker.

So, 'Welker makes the catch- game over' because you consider a TD from 20 yards out automatic? Gotcha

he didnt need to twist his body all the way around. he measured the ball up, jumped turned and watched the ball come into his hands almost head level. sorry thats a drop and a catch we come to expect from Welker.

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

Enjoyable game tonight and for my brother-in-law's sake I am glad the Giants won. Patriots looked flat in my opinion, never found that rhythm they usually get into. Kudos to the Giants for their win.
