Michael Strahan (from l.), Tom Coughlin and Manning float above Broadway to the cheering of thousands.Really not much else can be said about the Giants winning the Super Bowl that hasn’t been said already.

Congratulations New York Giants!

But this time it’s between the football teams!

With all the talk about the weather, Ryan Grant and the Super Bowl being Brett Favre’s destiny or final swan song, the New York Giants prove to the football world that they are the ones who belong in the big game.
Don’t get me wrong, the Green Bay Packers have an explosive team but with the weather being in the single digits, it put each team on an equal playing field and looking at both Eli Manning and Brett Favre on and off the field, it looked like Eli was the one who was more used to the frigid temperatures then Brett was. And although Plaxico Burress didn’t make it into the endzone, he may have had his best game of his career! 11 receptions for 154 yards.. What a way to step up! Big time players make big time plays and Plaxico was as big as anyone in the game!

Next up is the team that the Giants played in the final week of the season, the New England Patriots. Aside from the one big play from Tom Brady to Randy Moss that set records, the Giants had played them well on both offense and defense. These two weeks are going to be critical for both teams, giving them time to assess each other. But with the long layoff and the Giants playing hot right now who will benefit from it? The Giants are riding that big wave of momentum, it will be tough to carry that over into the Super Bowl, especially after not playing for 2 weeks.

If the game is close like it was in week 16, the Giants well prevail, ending a dream season for Brady and the Patriots and giving another Manning the opportunity to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, two years in a row!

One Word… Momentum ! January 7, 2008

Manning points Giants offense to victory and a showdown in Dallas.

Obviously the Giants are building up a lot of momentum going into the playoffs. Ever since the game against the Bills, they are putting together all the pieces at the right time in the season.
Next up, The Dallas Cowboys who lately have hit a few road bumps with the injury to Terrel Owens and the dismal play of Tony Romo. If the Giants can come out in the start of the game, playing the way they have been play in the later parts of game, they will be playing in Green Bay for the NFC Championship!

This video is in response to Tiki Barbers comments that the former NY Giants running back now NBC football analyst made during the halftime report between the Giants and the Ravens. Basically Barber called Eli Manning’s leadership “comical” at times..

In my opinion, the Giant organization may be secretly thanking Barber for making those comments about Eli Manning. It may have fired up the 4th year quarterback!

In the past, Eli may have been hesitant to step on anyones toes because of the other “leaders” on the team, one which is no longer there (Barber) Eli may be realizing it’s time to show (and prove) what he can do as the sole leader of the team. Let’s hope.
I’m glad to see some the veteran players such as Amani Toomer and Shaun O’Hara, support Eli Manning. His teammates have the confidence in him but does he have the confidence in himself?
He has all the motivation to do well and the list keeps growing. Here is a short list:

  • Peyton Manning
  • Peyton Manning
  • Peyton Manning winning the Super Bowl
  • Ben Roethlisberger (picked after Eli) winning the Super Bowl
  • Tiki Barber’s comments
  • Other Media (negative) comments
  • etc…

The list probably will go on until he wins a Super Bowl himself.

I hope Eli Manning does well.
