Giants SHOCK Patriots And Win Super Bowl
The New York Giants are the World Champions after they beat the previously undefeated New England Patriots by a score of 17-14. The Giant's defensive coordinator outcoached defensive specialist Bill Belichick, using a vast array of blitzes to keep the pressure on Tom Brady and his offensive line as they held the record-setting Patriots' offense to a mere two touchdowns. The fourth quarter started with a 7-3 score, but MVP Eli Manning twice marched his team down the field for touchdowns, and the Patriots could not retaliate. In one remarkable play, Manning thrice avoided being tackled, which would have spelled doom for the Giants and an undefeated season for New England. Somehow, someway he emerged from the pack of would-be tacklers and connected to Plaxico Burress. That was a miracle play, and I must congratulate the New York Giants, their coaches and their fans. Wow, what a great game! And the fourth quarter was one for the ages. Finally, a Super Bowl that was better than the commercials!
Now I know why I dislike making predictions. I guessed in yesterday's post that the final score would be 34-21. Not even close, Peter! There will be a victory parade in the Big Apple tomorrow as the New York sports fans celebrate their team's victory. Those same fans will be quick to point out the revenge factor after their hearts were soiled by a Red Sox World Championship. But the Super Bowl and the NFL have absolutely NOTHING to do with the World Series and Major League Baseball.
Again, my heartfelt congratulations to the New York Giants. The Patriots were quite simply outcoached. Period.
