Then the second of the two Kyle Williams punt return fumbles in SF provided the NYG to enter into the SB to face a New England team with a last ranked defense that they came back to beat in the last moments of the game. Yeah, the Giants won SB 46 but then again a lucky team is not a good team. The 2011 NYG were the only Super Bowl champion in NFL history to be outscored by their opponents during the regular season. That's hardly a good team......
Right, doesn't anyone remember the Giants tripping and falling onto the Lombardi Trophy? That's the way I remember it too.

No, I didn't. Not in the least. Their path to the Super Bowl trophy was paved with luck, 15-1 teams not showing up to play, and a poor defense not being good enough to defend in a game when it counted the most. This team was nothing at all like the 1986 Giants who ran over every opponent to get to the SB. The 2011 NYG were more like 1979 LA Rams.

Re: Mara Karma

I wouldn't mind some of that Giants luck for our playoff run.

And didn't we just have a little taste with Foles missing that wide open TD near the end of last week's game??

Luck alone doesn't win you a Super Bowl.

Perhaps Foles missed that throw due to his broken hand. Luck is part of the game too. If Welker catches that throw from Brady with 4 minutes left in the Super Bowl, NE probably grinds out the clock and wins the game. Most champions have some measure of luck along the way.

Re: Mara Karma

True enough. At the same time, champions have teams and players that make the most the lucky breaks they get.

Luck undeniably plays a part - its an odd shaped ball and it bounces in funny ways. With that said, I would rather have Ed Reed trying to catch the bouncing ball then, say, DeJon Gomes.

If anyone one has ever checked ,I have never said one word about not being lucky.I ask members of this board would you rather be good#1 D ,#1 O and get knocked out after 1 and done or get a little lucky and win 4 or 5 in a row and win the super bowl???

**** the Giants. Pieces of shit, every one of them.

Same goes for the Eagles and Cowboys. All pieces of diarrhea shit with little bits of corn.

Don't you just love a good blanket statement with absolutely no underlying knowledge? I mean, obviously I dislike our rivals, being a Skins fan and all, but I feel sometimes it's necessary to differentiate the team and the player. There are a lot of players from our rivals that I respect not only for what they do on the field, but off of it. Victor Cruz is one of them, for what he did for Jack Pinto's family (and for also trying to avoid the media attention it brought). DeMarcus Ware is another one of them, for the troubles he's had trying to raise a family. All you do when you talk like that is embarrass yourself.

Re: Mara Karma

But isn't it even a little bit funny because he took the time to add "with little bits of corn" in there? No? Okay, just thought I'd ask.

I would feel more confident with a team that has been smoking hot all season than a team that is barely good enough to win. If a 14-2 team meets a 10-6 or 9-7 team in the playoffs then usually the 14-2 team would win. It's like a heavyweight fighter going up against a light heavyweight fighter and everyone knows who will win that fight.

But I do give the NYG a lot of credit for being resilient.
