    I also would like to point out that with a tie game late in the fourth quarter, Tom Coughlin let Eli go out there and throw it up even with the 49ers pass rush mauling him on almost every play.

    That's the difference right there between a good coach who knows what it takes to win... and Tony Sparano.

    Giants' offensive line tried to give that game away. Eli's jersey was so dirty he looked like he played for the Browns.

    Anyone who wants to argue that Eli isn't an elite QB in this league needs to be slapped in the jaw with a cast iron pot.

    Seriously, that kid has it all.

    The Patsies deserved to win. Their front office isn't infinitely stupid, as ours has been, and they have a great QB. Calling them "cheatriots" just shows jealousy, and i'm sure it gives their fans nipple hard-ons when they read it.

    If the Patriots are cheating to win, then by all means, we should cheat as well.

    I was always told to cheat to win.

    Ric Flair taught me that.

    Ravens figure to fall off a bit next season. A loss like that is psychologically difficult to set aside. You could sense from the opening week against Pittsburgh that they were determined to take one last run at it.

    I felt sick for Ed Reed. Particularly after he made the great clutch deflection on Brady's final pass. It was so reminiscent of AFC Championship Game 2006 when Brady had a chance to put the Colts away on 3rd and 4 with about 2 minutes remaining. But he missed the read, the ball fell incomplete, and Peyton took Indianapolis down the field to steal the game.

    Reed has been so banged up the past few seasons he doesn't play as tight to the line of scrimmage, or make as many physical plays when they are needed. He's mostly a deep center field finesse rover these days. Nationally he doesn't get any heat for it but there are murmurs among Ravens fans. I've noticed that he saves his old style physical nature for huge games like this, particularly late in the game. Last season in the AFC playoffs he had quite a battle with Hines Ward, brutal collisions both ways. Before that crucial 3rd down play tonight I told the people I was watching the game with that Reed would crash an underneath attempt, if it went his way.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he retires.

    Watching the Patriots makes me sick. I don't care which division they are in. Their style of play with all the shot gun and Strawberry Shortcake passes is unbearable.

    Once Flacco failed to wait the extra half second for the fullback to clear on the second down bootleg play after Woodhead fumbled the kickoff, you had to sense the Patriots would escape again. If he senses and makes that play for 24-16 the mathematical edge would have been enough. At 20-16 it was basically pick-em.

    Anyone else see the irony that the Patriots defense, (and a kicker), got them into another Super Bowl?

    They sure didn't win because of elite QB play. The better defense won yesterday-New England. Flacco was the better QB and lost.
