The Giants have a better team to take it this year. The Patriots barely got the win. Flacco played a hell of lot better than Brady(Brady passed for 0 TDs). The Ravens basically lost it for themselves with all those penalties(2 of which negated interceptions), the Lee Evans dropped pass and the Cundiff missed FG. How do the Patriots expect to beat Eli if Flacco and the Ravens(who are a rush first team) exposed the Pats secondary? The Giants have Nicks, Cruz, and Manningham and they have a more active pass rush than the Ravens. I'm picking the Giants.
the 2 penalties was an offsides and i think the other was illegal contact. brady saw it was offsides so he just lobbed it up in the air so his receiver could make a play not caring much about the coverage because it was essentially a free play since the ravens was offsides. the other interception was because webb got in the way of welker's route and made contact which prevented him from jumping up to get the ball, otherwise it would've been a catch. they got those interceptions BECAUSE of those penalties.
and flacco was going up against the patriots secondary while brady had to go up against the Ravens... the best pass defense that was left in the championship games. and like u said, they are a rush first team, but the patriots pretty much negated their run all day, especially at the early parts of the game and MADE them throw the ball. which they did, and they did it with some success, but they still werent able to outscore our offense even though they won the turnover battle.
and u talking like the patriots barely beating the Ravens(a team that had a 12-4(?) record, 2nd seed, and got to the championship) makes them inferior to the giants who barely beat the 49ers because of an inexperienced punt returner and a terrible whistle that negated a fumble by the giants. nothing against the giants and 9ers, but im trying to make a point here.
brady had a non-typical brady day, but the patriots still won. why? CUZ WE MORE HUNGRY MANGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!
u got me writing an essay cuz u looking down on my patriots, nahhhhh sonn.
