Giants Beat Patriots in Super Bowl XLII
The New York Giants will Beat The New England Patriots in the Super Bowl!
That’s right. I said it. I BELIEVE it! The Giants will beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, it won’t be by a field goal either. For those of you who are mocking me right now, just wait until Sunday night when Eli is hoisting the trophy alongside Plaxico Burress, Michael Strahan, Amani Toomer and the other Giants. This will be a disappointing season for Tom Brady and his band of undefeated men. Too bad. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
So why do I think the Giants will win? First off, I know they will win. Just think back to the last game of the regular season when the Giants faced the Patriots. My bud said the Giants were Patriot killers, but they fell a bit short. Not by too much, they almost pulled it out. But beyond that, they gained a huge sense of confidence. Everyone (except me) said that the Patriots were going to demolish the Giants in that game. Sorry, didn’t happen. Instead they opened Pandora’s box. Little did the Pats know that in winning that game they sealed their inevitable fate: Losing the Super Bowl and going 18-1. Thus going down as the biggest chokers in NFL history.
Still don’t think they will win? Did you think the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were going to beat the Giants? Ha! I knew Jeff Garcia was going to throw an interception. The guy tries too hard. Bucs choked. Okay, I bet you were one of the folks that said the Dallas Cowboys, led by Tony “Oh No!” Romo, were going to crush the Giants. Am I right? I know you thought that, but I told everyone I know that I don’t believe in Romo. I knew he would throw an INT as well. He is another try-too-hard kinda guy, with his “elusiveness.” Didn’t work either. Oh, I know! You finally thought that the Green Bay Packer cheese heads would win, at home in the cold, and send the Giants packing. HA! I called that one too (those of you out there know I called it). I knew that Brett Favre would try and perform one of his patented “get away from the sack” plays only to throw an interception. Then, he did. Effectively giving up at the end of the game. Who cares if he is coming back next season, the guy needs to retire and head to his Wrangler jeans farm.
Did you notice the pattern? All of those teams won their Divisions. So have the Patriots. I have had faith in the Giants all year and while Eli Manning has let me down in the past, he won’t this time. Eli has enough skills to win the Super Bowl MVP. He has the hottest team in the NFL for the past 6 weeks, a two-headed (sometimes 3) monster running game, a deep threat sure-handed receiver in Burress, and a defense that can come through in clutch moments.
I haven’t even spoken about the level of play from the two teams over the last few weeks. The Patriots have gone from super-duper play to average play. The Giants have gone from below-average play to game changing, do what it takes to win, above average play. You know what? I rest my case. We will see my prediction come true on Sunday.
Folks, get ready for one of the saddest days in Boston, Massachusetts history.
The Giants are coming and they ain’t taking no prisoners!
