to me, there is one bonehead play by the gmen, I will never forget..
the giants failing to kill the clock at the end, was horrendous..
even coughlin said, that if the pats made a miracle, tom would never forgive himself..
even bradshaw said, he was trying to stop at the one yard line,
(which I think iis BS, he just wanted personal glory)..
eli regretted that TD too..

I know there were some special plays..
but 50 years from now, most likely I will remember the bonehead play..
belichick would never had made that play in a million years..
heck, even 12 yeaf old kids playin NFL Madden, know to kill the clock..
maybe if the pats had a dwayne dweebly at QB, the play would not be too too stupid..
but the pats have brady..
and you simply do not give brady the ball back with a minute to go..

I was watchin the game, and told my friend, the pats should let them score a TD..
my friend said, no way do the gmen not kill the clock..
even my bro a gmen fan, went awfully quiet after giants failed to kill the clock..

I am a pats fan..
and I congratulate new york, they were better..

But come on!
that bonehead play was outrageous.


If the Pats had scored and won as a result of the Bradshaw TD, then yes, I'd agree that there was a chance that that play may have been remembered.

But there is zero, literally 0%, chance that will be the remembered play. THE GIANTS WON.

As a result, what will be remembered is Eli proving he is ELIte, the Giants slaying the Pats for the 2nd time in 4 years, and if you're looking for a specific play, the 38 yard pass to Manningham to set up the winning TD.

In 50 years no one will remember a bad play by the team who won. Yes, the Giants shouldn't have scored, but if you don't, there's still no guarantee Tynes makes the FG. And if he does, the Pats, granted with only 15 seconds or so, could win with a FG. So had they gotten a great kick return, they may have been in good shape.

And Belichick probably would've taken time off the clock, but he coached a pretty bad game, especially by his standards. Had he called a TO earlier in the Giants drive, the Pats would've had more time on the clock, and he had already burned a TO on the challenge.

Regardless, there is no way people remember this play seeing as how it ended up meaning nothing. The Giants won.


I still dont consider eli elite, ha ha..
9_7? Elite?
is he clutch at the 2minute drill? Sure..
but an elite QB is extremely consistent..
and alot of those 7 loses, you can point the finger at eli..

As we saw at the end of the game,
the gmen left too much time on the clock..
Gronkowski came within half a foot of winning the ball game..

It was a bonehead play..
it is in the same category as grady leaving pedro in too long..
if the red sox win that game in extras,
does that mean that all of a sudden gradys bonehead desicion simply disappears? NOPE!

If gronk catches that hail mary,
coughlin and even more so personal_glory_bradshaw have nightmares for the rest of their lives..

Im just europhic, neither bonehead is on my team..
i honestly cant think of a bigger bonehead play off the top of my head..
at least with grady he was too in love with his player to take him out..
its not suppose to happen, but it does..

Bradshaw should be ashamed of himself for jeopardizing the team..
he put himself before the team..

Belichick was a genius for letting them score a TD..


Was it really a genius move by BB? Cause last I checked, the Pats lost, and those were the SB winning points. And Belichick had AWFUL clock management in the 2 plays before that.

Be euphoric that Bradshaw and Coughlin aren't on your team, I guess, but at the end of the day, they got the rings.

And you are overstating how big of a "bonehead" play that is. Let's say he takes a knee, and the Giants are down 17-15 with 25 or so seconds to go, ball at the 1 yard line going for the FG.

So many things can go wrong on that play. As we saw with Cundiff two weeks ago, pro bowl kickers are definitely capable of missing chip shots to win or tie the game. And Tynes isn't, or has ever been, a "pro bowl" kicker. So there's definitely a chance the pressure gets to him and he shanks it.

Also, 1 bad snap, which we've seen countless times when the game is on the line, and the game is over.

Or the Pats could've even blocked it. Would he have probably made it? Yes, but there was a lot that could've gone wrong. Take the points, the lead, and the TD.

It's silly to even have this debate. Bradshaw scored a go ahead TD, and the Giants won. That's what it boils down to.


I am a perfectionist.
if im coughlin, and I am facing one of the best QBs of all time.
you damn well keep bradys butt on the bench.
If you cant get a 3 pointer from the one yard line?
then you ask your kicker how much he got paid by the mafia.

Eli will never be considered elite..
not sure where you are going with that angle..

My second choice?
the two pointer.
it messed everything up for both teams.
and as a result there was never a "flow" to the game.
i wish there was never a thing called a safety.
just punish the team by one or two downs and put the ball on the one yard line.

Your manningham catch?
the one 4 years ago caught by the helmet was 1000 times better.
so I dont like your angle there either.


Just wish the ball hit the back of the gmens secondary,
and gronk wins SB MVP by catching that hail mary.
then we have a REAL hero and a noice story to tell our grand kids.

Instead we have 2 boneheads of "leave it alone Leon" caliber,
That I expect the average 12 year old playing NFL madden to make..
AND
a 2 pointer that disrupted the flow of the game,
more than,
lindsey lohan disrupting a young mans life via genital ****!


You may not think Eli's elite, but when every major sports website and almost all of the sports world is leading off their recap of the SB like how the AP did saying that's Eli ended the debate and proved he is elite, it's just plain wrong to say "Eli will never be considered elite."

Maybe he won't be to you, but he is to most of the sports world.

And it's funny timing to want to get rid of the safety. Only when a good, logical rule works against the Pats do you want it overturned.

Manningham's catch wasn't as good as Tyree's but that's not really relevant. Again, maybe you didn't like it cause you're a blind homer, but the rest of the sports world and news media are raving about the catch and heralding it as the best play of the SB.

If Gronk makes that catch, that makes for an awful story to tell our grandkids. After all, no one (outside of NE and NFC East fans) roots for cheaters. And as our friends on the Steelers D James Harrison and Ryan Clark nicely pointed out last night, the Pats haven't won a SB since spygate. Are they linked to one another? Maybe, but seeing the team almost everyone wanted to lose win wouldn't have been a "noice story."

I agree. This was the day Eli stepped out from Peytons shadow and proved he was everything he said he was earlier in the season.

Bradshaw's gaff won't be remembered because it didn't change anything. For me, the 12 men on the field penalty on the Patriots that negated a fumble recovery IN THE RED ZONE and resulted in a TD by the Giants was the key error in the game. Without it, the Patriots win. It was a dumb and inexcusable mistake and shouldn't happen after week 2 or 3 never mind the Superbowl.

Could be. I'd have to watch the replay again to see if what I'm about to say is true, but it's also possible that the "12th man" so to speak was the one who forced the fumble. Maybe if they only had 11 in the first place, they wouldn't have forced the fumble. Another big play was the Welker drop.

I agree with right. The only way that play is rememebr is if the Giants don't win.

This would also apply if he had gotten down and run more clock BUT the G-Men missed the field goal or turned the ball over before scoring.

And, Bradshaw didn't expects the Pats to part like the Red Sea. He did what he could and Eli said so afterward.

If he was a genius for letting them score, why didn't he do it sooner instead of burning seconds off the clock and a time out.

So, if Bradshaw did fall on the one yard line, and Tynes missed the field goal, then what? We see field goal kickers miss chip shots all the time. Scoring that touchdown with so little left of the clock was the right move.

February 6, 2012  12:53 PM ET

I'm definitely not a fan of purposely playing for a last second FG on the goal line. Put that crap in the end zone so the game doesn't come down to a kicker, where a bad snap can end the game.

The catch will be remebered and then trying to stop his momentum from getting to the end zone falling over the goal. you can tell he was not expecting no one to hit him, that is why he got so far so fast.
