Well, it took overtime, and once again the new overtime rules did not come into play. Just like the earlier game, this was so much more "49ers lose" than "Giants win" but at least we could blame it on the rain.

Tonight showed me that I really dislike the 49ers much less than I dislike the Giants. Maybe it was the replays of Tynes' LAST Conference championship winning field goal that reminded me.

I still can't believe the Giants are in the Super Bowl.

The last time this Super Bowl happened, New York had one prominent former USF player in their defense, starting middle linebacker Kawika Mitchell. This year, they have two - Jason Pierre-Paul, and linebacker Jacquian Williams, who forced the fumble by Kyle Williams that set up the winning field goal. Clearly the Giants will win comfortably this time.

But seriously, Alex Smith had a good run. Last week he played great. But the 49ers need a quarterback. Michael Crabtree was silent in this game too, but I don't know if that's his fault, Smith's fault, or somebody else's fault.

But USF angle aside, I'm on the Giants bandwagon anyway. I love Tom Brady, he's amazing, but I think Eli cements his own legacy and outshines his brother by turning in a second Super Bowl winning performance.

The Niners defense is amazing if they get a capable NFL QB they'll be a juggernaut for years to come. Alex Smith is so bad he makes Mark Sanchez look less shitty.

The weather was so bad at the end I was wondering if we'd go to double overtime

Considering the way the offenses were moving for most of the 2nd half and beginning of overtime, I was wondering if finally the mythical 2nd halftime would occur.
Any time you can win a championship game on the road and the only way to advance the ball in the 2nd half is for the other team to screw up 2 punt returns, you take the win and get out as quickly as possible.
Too bad the 130 year old woman in the Giants locker room didn't have a cane to beat up Terry Bradshaw with.

I'm surprised they didn't reference, unless I missed it, Trey Junkin's 2002 botched snap in the Wild Card game for the Giants against the 49ers, and the mess that ensued thereafter.

He is the ninth rated QB in the NFL this season.
I am a Giants fan, but I'm not blind enough to ignore the season he had. Better statistically than people you probably think are "capable".




ANYWAY, this is just all kinds of awesome! I love the OT, and how it played out. I was on the edge of my seat the entire second half through the game winning FG. Exciting game to watch! Both games were great! Now if we can just get Brady shut down, life will be good.

A point not many people were making last week for some reason.

Smith didn't even play badly yesterday considering the shittiness of the conditions. He actually wound up with a higher QB rating than Eli and picked up a few yards with his legs to boot.

Vernon Davis managed OK in the playoffs. The guy throwing them the ball was the same for both he and Crabtree, so some other variable is the more likely cause of his anonymity.

I'm not saying Smith is definitely the answer, but they'd be nuts to make a change now. He did a good job protecting the ball all season, had a real coming out party just eight days ago and finally has a chance to play on a competitive team which (presumably) will have some stability on the coaching side of things for the first time in his career. And he's still only 27.

They won't get anyone better in free agency and it's highly unlikely they'd get someone in the draft who could step in and play better next season. If nothing else he deserves at least one more year to show whether this season was a one off or if he can consistently win games in the NFL.

I'm pretty sure that Ely was on his back during that game more than a Kardashian - talk about a team that limped and crawled into the play-offs.

Still, I give the NFL credit - both championship games were pretty good.

They did draft Colin Kaepernick in the 2nd round with the belief that he would be the next QB for the 49ers. Smith was resigned to a 1 year contract for around $5 million, so do the 49ers try to get him on another short contract, or are they forced to go big money for multi years? And, would they want to go 5 years $50 million around 20 guaranteed?

Eli looked like someone tied him to the back of a truck and decided to go mudding. 49ers kept beating themselves with Davis acting like a fool, turnovers and the need to have Smith throw on first down. I won't sign Smith to anything more than a 2 to 3 year deal for $10-$15 million.

Ah, I clean forgot about Kaepernick. It would take a pretty big leap of faith to think he could step in next year and improve the team, so I'd have thought they'd try to convince Smith to sign a short term deal and take it from there. From Smith's point of view if he has another good season he'll get much better offers in a year's time than he would this off season and from the 49ers point of view it gives them another year to evaluate both guys.

Eli is becoming the king of the lucky throw.

This is a terrible matchup for the Pats I don't know how they cover Cruz and Nicks let alone tackle them.

That QB rating is based almost entirely on an unstainably low interception rate. As fun as this run was, Smith is turning back into a pumpkin next year.

Tim Tebow had an awesome game against the Steelers because the Steelers decided that covering Demariyus Thomas wasn't a priority.

Alex Smith had an awesome game against the Saints because the Saints decided that covering Vernon Davis wasn't a priority.

Both of these guys' next opponents adjusted and the fact that neither Denver nor San Francisco have any other reasonable passing options led each team to have crappy days through the air and eventual losses.

If Denver and San Francisco try to come back in 2012 with the same crappy receiving corps they DESERVE to lose. Their QBs are not the main problem, and they are both drafting in the 20s so it's not like they can get franchise QBs, anyway.
