Congratulations New York Giants! – Super Bowl Champions XLVI

February 6th, 2012 by Michael Tabor
Instead of writing about this incredible game (I’m still deliriously flying high with joy), I’m just going to open it up with 3 questions:
Was this the best Super Bowl game you have ever seen?

Who do you think is better Eli Manning or his brother Peyton Manning ?
(Keep in mind everything including the intangibles such as keeping cool under pressure, leadership, etc. not just athletic ability. Note: Eli has two rings and Peyton only has one.)
What was the key turning point or play in the game?
So WhaDaYaThink ? What do you think ?

    It was a great team victory! I don’t know that I can say that Eli is better than Peyton based on their entire body of work but there are aspects of his game that he does better than just about anyone. He has a very level demeanor which has become an attribute and has lead to him leading the league in 4th quarter touchdown passes and come from behind victories. Prior to him reaching this level of success, he was misunderstood in that he also never seemed to be overly disturbed when he failed. People just didn’t realize that’s just who he is. He faces both success and failure with a cool head which serves him quite well when he is faced with these pressure situations. I’m very happy for him and the entire New Your Football Giants organization and will do my best to be at the parade tomorrow down the Canyon of Heroes to show my support!

    Hi Pavillion Battery – wow! you must think Peyton Manning is god if you think he can turn around a team that went 6-10 this year. Why does Peyton only have one ring if he’s so great. I know PM is a stud and he’s going to go down in history as one of the finest QB’S to ever play the game but one super bowl ??

    Mr. Tabor, Having viewed all 46 super bowls this one ranks among the top five especially for Giant fans. The outstanding play of Eli Manning and the underated defense combined to achieve an impressive win. Many would note all the more impressive as the Giants struggled earlier in the season highlighting a miserable showing against the Redskins, Eagles, and an overall abysmal record. With the Patriots clearly trying to dominate, it was apparent they were unable to match the Giants in talent and determination. Much credit should go to Tom Coughlin and his staff for developing a game plan which showed the Giants are a superior and more physically talented team. The final Giant drive late in the 4th quarter sealed the game and doomed any chance the Patriots had for a win. The passing tandem of Manning, Hicks, and Cruz proved the Patriots weakness on pass defense was fatal.
    Its fair to note that while Brady and company were physically outmatched, their effort emphasized they were also well coached and determined to win,and until the final whistle, they were still battling. So bask in glory all ye Giant fans, and remember training camp is only six months away.

    Not only a Giants win, but Eli winning in his brothers house made it more enjoyable.

    I’m sure growing up in the Manning family, Peyton was the big star, better looking, etc. I’m so happy for Eli!!!

    Thank you Le duke de fromage ! I’ve seen most of the super bowls and for me personally this was the sweetest. Kudos to Tom Coughlin (& shame on the fair-weather NY fans who were AGAIN demanding that he be fired.) I actually like Coughlin better than I did Bill Parcels. And to to tip my hand here – I’ll take Eli over Peyton anytime. And the play of the game was Manning to Manningham’s 38 yard reception with just over 3 minutes left to keep the drive going.

    What I thought was the most interesting part of the game was when the Patriots let Bradshaw score the TD. Obviously it’s a brilliant strategy that the great Bill Belichick almost pulled off (how great is Tom brady & what respect – how about that 4th & 17 conversion) but on the other hand if I’m Coughlin I say score the touchdown. I’ve seen too many weird things when there is a lot of pressure is on (bad snap, etc.)

  8. Michael Tabor Says:

    Hey Paul I’m so happy for Eli too. I had an older brother who was a talented athlete and I was always overshadowed. How sweet it is !!!!!!!!!!
