    I actually like the Giants a lot. In fact, when we played them this year, in my mind, I found it hard to develop a 'dislike' for the opponent on that given day. Typically, I can find something to make me really dislike the team we're playing on any given Sunday..whether it be a player, the team's coach, the owner, a combination of those, etc. Kind of a strange feeling for me that day.

    I hope both teams play to their full potential and we have an exciting game.
    I would like to see Brady tossed around, bruised and battered, but not injured.

    If a player doesn't want to come to a division simply because he is scared of another player on a team in that division, then I don't want him anyhow.

    However, I don't believe PManning would ever worry along those lines. He is looking for a place to play out his final seasons on a team that gives him a chance at another SB ring.

    Same here.

    I'm rooting for a good game. And while everyone here hate on Tom Brady it just shows your envy for the guy. The guy is a damn good quarterback, better than Montana and Montana is a Top 5 all time QB, some even said he was the best QB ever.

    I was (and still am) a Heat fan on years we should have been in the Finals' but Jordan was just being a ***** taking over the league. I still appreciate Jordan's game, just like I appreciate Brady's game.

    If Brady wins today he's going to be setting an NFL record for most wins in the postseason (currently tied with Montana at 15) and he will tie Bradshaw and Montana on Super Bowl rings.

    So this game is a must watch, it could be history here.

    The most valid reason to root for the Giants is what it would likely do to New England next season. Super Bowl losers have been in a funk the following season, with barely a playoff victory and many of them missing the playoffs period.

    On the other hand, a win would likely catapult New England to great heights next season. Soaring confidence. In this pass happy era with the pathetic rules and application of them I always dread the prospect of one of the superior quarterbacks winning the Super Bowl, considering the chance they'll threaten unbeaten the following season. Green Bay's pursuit this year was about as surprising as Apple's upturn once Steve Jobs returned. I couldn't stop laughing when the oddsmakers set Green Bay's season win over/under at 11.5. How was that team going to lose 5 times under these rules and coming off a Super Bowl win?

    I'm rooting for the Giants today. They run a terrific camp in Albany. I've visited many times while summering in Saratoga and it's first class all the way, incredibly fan friendly. In summer 2007 when my mom was still alive but struggling to get around, Giants camp employees noticed her immediately and called for a golf cart. They took us to the VIP area directly in front of practice and treated my mom to drinks and snacks and whatever she wanted. The family became Giants fans from that point forth.

    I don't have a bet on the game today since both teams were virtually even in Yards Per Pass Attempt Differential during the regular season. My related system went 6-2 vs. the number during the playoffs. Handicapping instinct tells me it will be the Patriots, probably by more than expected, maybe 7-10 points. The Giants have overcome huge odds many times against top quarterbacks in 2007 and 2011, more than sensible. They were +11.5 in the '07 season Super Bowl, +8.5 at New England this year, +8.5 at Green Bay a few weeks ago, and +2.5 against Alex Smith in the NFC title game. Today they are bouncing between +2.5 and +3 against Tom Brady.

    Too much of an adjustment. The past two weeks there's been an unusually high percentage of analysts picking the Giants, wondering why they are underdog. Very common in sports handicapping for a team to struggle when assigned high favoritism but then to rebound and exceed all expectation when the odds are low and sentiment tilted the other way.

    Don't wish injury on Brady. I don't like him either, but come on. Let's just see him lose and that'll be enough

    I'm almost rooting for the Giants because I have a sort of soft spot for them after they ruined the Pats perfect season
