Actually it was a really good call. The Giants were going to run the clock all the way down and kick the FG anyway. So you might as well let them score and give Brady a chance. The big problem for NE is that their entire passing game is just built to exploit the rules - e.g. dink and dunk , and they have no downfield threats anymore, so they were always going to be up against it. Great season, great game, great result!
Doesn't matter now. All that matters is that the Pats lose...AGAIN! Boom!
-Dan MarinoI just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
its a great day to be a Fins fan
he cant win without the extra info from cheating, and either can Tom
Post spygate: it's sure hard to win the big ones when you don't know your opponents' plays... so cut him some slack.
Goodell and the league, took care of that uncomfortable information by keeping it hidden then destroying it. It must have been extensive and beyond just embarrassing Kraft, who I think they were protecting in this cover up, it would have led to the Patriots being stripped of their titles.
Imagine that, from the fraudulent rings to the nation wide media love fest and HOF talk for Brady/Belichik being a worthless sham. All the opponents would have wanted to be delclared the SB winners by default. That's just too much of a hit and the the league made sure that evidence never saw the light of day.
This never gets old no matter how Patsie fans deny their whole tainted SB legacy exists because the facts were swept under the rug.
