Hats off to the Giants #NFCEAST
But the wrong player won the Super Bowl MVP....Manningham saved the day, great play and catch in traffic.
It was one fucking hell of a throw though...
Better catch IMO...Eli played a great game, but he just chunked the shit out of the ball
Just watching the replay a few times again I still can't believe Mario came down with that pass. Eli better get him a platinum Citizens Eco Watch or something
I'm honestly not here to argue, you can think whatever you please, but the only reason that Manningham made THAT one is because he missed another almost identical pass earlier in the game where he just didn't place his feet correctly and had a foot out of bounds. Therefore he was ready to be well-positioned the next time. (remember the one where they put up the graphic about him destroying his QB's cushion by going wide off the snap?) Same exact throw just to the opposite side of the field (again perfectly placed) and he just didn't keep both feet inside the line.
Combined with the fact that he dropped the deep post on (another) perfect pass that would have likely led to points earlier on 3rd down... That's 2 plays he could have conceivably made earlier that might have resulted in the game not even being close. And therefore I'm not really buying the argument he should have been the MVP. Great catch though.
You have converted me
Congratulations to the effing Giants. Was ironic to see Tommy make the mistakes that Eli has been criticized for throughout his career . . .
