Well, maybe after all this is a team of destiny. After going 0-2 and giving up a combined 80 points in their first two games… And now all of a sudden… Super Bowl Bound!
Take that Tiki Barber….
So where did this game go wrong for the Green Bay Packers? The bottom line here was simply that the Giants outplayed the Packers, on offense and on defense. No question about it. If it wasn’t for Mr. Tynes and R Dub’s the Giants win this game outright, but the Giants offense ever since that week 17 performance against their opponent in Glendale, AZ, has been clicking. That Patriots game got Eli Manning going and guess what? Since the Playoffs have begun, Manning is 53/85 for 600 yards, 4 touchdowns and, most importantly, zero turnovers. Eli Manning is managing the game for this New York Giants team and they have come together at the right time.
It is unfortunate for Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers to have their season coming to a close, but don’t discount the season that team had under Head Coach Mike McCarthy. Going 14-3 and suprising a lot of people should not go unnoticed. But this is a day to praise the Giants. Praise Tom Coughlin. Praise Eli Manning. Praise Michael Strahan and that Giants Defense. They defied the odds and they will be going to play in the Super Bowl XLII
I could go a lot of different ways here for my MVP of this game, but I am going to give it to the field general, Sir Eli Manning. The man didn’t throw any touchdowns but he threw for over 250 yards and did not turn the ball over. He led the Giants down the field time in and time out in the cold weather at Lambeau Field outplaying Mr. Favre. Well done to you sir.
So hats off to the Giants… Going to the Super Bowl… Vindication for Tom Coughlin and the rest of this Giants Team… I wonder what Tiki Barber is thinking right now….
I’ll have plenty thoughts on the match up for Super Bowl XLII, but enjoy this Giants Fans. This is as good as it gets.
Be Good Folks
