Good God, what a finish. The last 2 minutes of this game was incredible! As a GIANTS fan, I sure am happy, as a football fan, I am even more happy. What a game.

I was happy to see that it was a close game. The safety in the beginning, the dominance of the Giants, and yet the Pats still lead (barely) at the half. Although the last minute was a bit of a letdown (in terms of excitement/nail biting), but Brady still pulled through and made something happen. So close, so far.

Congrats to the Giants :)

And of course, the middle finger brouhaha during halftime.

Eli Manning, two-time Super Bowl champion. During the postgame, we were all discussing how this now probably makes Eli a HOF lock unless he totally falls off the map for the rest of his career.

Goat of the game....well, it all goes back to Brady taking that stupid, stupid safety at the very beginning. That was two points, then the Giants took it down and scored to make it 9-0.

It's funny, of course, since Brady may be the goat, but if he had pulled off a touchdown on that final drive, he becomes a different kind of GOAT. The Patriots didn't look smooth on that last drive, so I blame Brady for not pointing out John Candy in the stands.

If Welker doesn't drop that WIDE OPEN catch the Pats could have at WORST milked some more time and kicked a FG to go up five. I love me some White Wes, but if anyone on the Patriots should be wearing goat horns it is him.

And nine times out of ten they don't call that play intentional grounding, but it was what it was.

The true scandal for me was the over-under (1:34) on Kelly Clarkson singing the Star-Spangled Banner. I took the under at +125 and it took the bookmakers until almost halftime to declare the official time to be 1 minute, 34.2 seconds. Damn! That has to be the longest official review in NFL history, no?

EDIT TO ADD: Not that you all care that much about my gambooling, but I have to brag at least a little about my favorite two wagers: +185 for NYG -3.5 (thank you, Ahmad Bradshaw) and a +155 prop bet that the first score of the game would either be a field goal... or a safety. Yessss!

Eli 2 Peyton 1

First time I think I've ever seen a team allow another team to score a touchdown on purpose. I don't blame the running back, they simply aren't used to falling down on purpose right in front of the end zone.

I wonder if the ref didn't have a bet on a safety being the first score (that was 50-60 to 1 odds).... Nah, this isn't the NBA.

Patriots really missed Rob Gronkowski and the Giants gave him no respect either, putting a single linebacker to guard him. They should have pulled Gronkowski competely and built a gameplan in part.. around Ochocinco of all people?

M&M's commercial was the best one of the bunch.

Eli's raw numbers will never be like Peyton's, because the Giants spend much of their cap money on defense, while the Colts always spent their cap money on their offensive line.

Super Bowl XXXII. From Wikipedia

Both teams' defenses tightened up, and the clubs exchanged punts twice. With Green Bay pinned at their own 10-yard line, Hentrich then kicked the ball 39 yards to the Packers 49-yard line with 3:27 left in the game. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Packers linebacker Darius Holland committed a 15-yard facemask penalty while tackling Davis on a 2-yard run, moving the ball to the 32-yard line. Two plays later, Elway completed a 23-yard pass to fullback Howard Griffith. A holding penalty pushed the Broncos back to the 18-yard line, but then Davis rushed 17 yards to the 1-yard line and the Broncos called a timeout. This left the Broncos facing second and goal with 1:47 left on the clock. The Packers had two timeouts remaining.

Packers coach Mike Holmgren told his team to let the Broncos score to maximize the time the Packers would have on the clock for a potentially game-tying drive. He admitted later that he had thought that it was first and goal rather than second and goal, crucial to clock management decision making on the play.[4] Davis did score his third rushing touchdown on second and goal, leaving 1:45 on the clock. The Broncos now had a one touchdown lead, at 31-24.

The Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was a madhouse for this one! The place erupted for the Giants' safety, just because that's such a tough bet to land (50-1 odds, to be exact).

The place picked up again for the 4th with every dropped pass and every near-turnover. Bradshaw's fumble nearly tore the roof off the joint until the Giants recovered it again.

Welker's dropped pass is a blur to me. I'm fairly certain that had Welker caught the ball, the Pats would have marched down the field and scored, made the 2-pt conversion, and I would have won my "Pats finish with 25" bet, which would have paid off 100-1 odds.

In short, Wes Welker owes me $10,000.

Sorry, but no. The Pats were up 17-15, so a TD with a kicked PAT puts them up by two scores at 24-15. A failed 2-pt conversion leaves them up eight, with the possibility that the Giants could score a TD and tie with their own 2-pt conversion.

I know this because I was screaming "just get up two scores' a LOT. :(

How many of us are old enough to remember the days when the Super Bowl was a disappointing, non-competitive game just about every year? Those days are long gone.

I'm not nearly as big a Giants fan as I am a Mets or Rangers fan, but since the Giants have now given me more championships than the other two combined, I'll take it.

Eli is just incredible under pressure. Just keep it close for the fourth quarter, and he'll bring it home. Wow.

Well, supposedly someone made out well because of the safety:

I remember the years of NFC dominance that bred some ugly ugly Super Bowl games but it's not like every game in recent years have always been close and/or exciting to watch. Giants/Ravens comes to mind.

It is amazing to me to wake up to hear Mike and Mike screaming about how dumb Bradshaw was. No, Mike and Mike is dumb, because they needed to get a TD, because Brady even with 20 seconds would have found a way to get a field goal to win. I guess they don't want to scape goat golden boy or the Pats anyway. That was Madden coaching out of Belichek. Congratulations to the Giants for outright winning the game and now you can't spell Elite without ELI.

Jim Plunkett was a two-time Super Bowl winner (and one-time Super Bowl MVP) who didn't make the HoF. I don't have an opinion on Eli and the Hall (too soon), just wanted to mention Plunkett.
I was so excited to see that safety, even though I had just told my cousin that one of the easiest ways to make money is to bet "No Safety". Midway through the 3rd quarter he also drunkenly predicted a 21-17 finish, which seemed very unlikely at the time because the Giants would have need 12 points, which is 4 FG. Two FGs and an inexplicable 2-pt conversion following the TD later, he had somehow predicted the final score.

All I can think of with the 2-pointer is that they thought it was timed and they would get to use up a few more seconds of the clock. But it wasn't and they didn't. The difference between a 4 pt, 5 pt, and 6 pt margin at that point in the game is absolutely zero.

I also thought it was a bad idea for the Pats to challenge that catch near the end. It was clearly a catch, and having one more timeout would have been much more valuable IMO. Instead the Giants ran the ball at 2:00, and the next play didn't start until 1:15. Pats sure could have used another 30 seconds on offense.

I'm already counting down to 9/6/12 when the Giants open up their title defense against the Packers (I hope).

As a hater of all things Manning, there couldn't be a better outcome. Little brother now has more rings than the favored son. Peyton's ego is going to EAT HIM ALIVE. Archie will try to play ref, but then Eli will turn on him for loving Payton best. Then he will KICK HIS LEG OUT OF HIS LEG!

The difference beteween a 4 point and 5 point game at that point is absolutely zero. The difference between a 5 point game and a 6 point game is practically zero, as it requires a blown PAT on a Patriots TD to be helpful. The difference between practically zero and absolutely zero is why you go for two.

I find this logic amazingly stupid (even for you) because even with 0:57 and one time out (which I BELIEVE is more time than 0:20 and zero time outs) they not only didn't get into field goal range, they only got to midfield.
