The truth is this is the second time the NY Giants have out played the NE Patriots. They outplayed the Patriots a second time. The Patriots did get every break and funny call. The mysterious swatting the ball forward on a fumble was bogus. The Patiots got their two touchdowns gift wrapped with a penalty on Pierce and Webster falling down. The Patriots did get all the lucky bounces on the interception and missed Burress wide open.
The Patriots are still arguably the best team in history to ever lose a Superbowl. Perfection does not mean anything unless it is accompanied by a championship. I am going to look for the 19-0 shirt and Fed Ex it to the Duck.
The unsung hero still remains David Tyree with a Touchdown in the fourth quarter and an amazing catch against his helmet after an impossible escape from Manning. Manning also learned to use his role players like Kevin Boss, Tyree and Smith in key situations. Perhaps Strahan, Toomer and Feagles ride off into the sunset.
The best part is the low class lout Tiki Barber is not here. Coughlin somehow managed to become a good coach when the ego maniacal Barber decided to go to NBC.
