What the game is all about
2 March 2008 | by pksoze22See all my reviews

First let me admit my bias I am a Giants fan, so I would have loved this game if the Giants won 31-0. And honestly The Giants also played in an NFC championship game that was arguably better than this Super Bowl. However when we watch football movies they follow the formula of a plucky underdog team going on a run and overcoming odds to beat an invincible foe and winning the game on a miracle play. In real life it doesn't happen like that the 85 Bears, 89 49ers, and other unbeatable squads won. Yet that was the story of the 2007 NY Giants they followed the movie script.

The Giants faced a Patriots team that won 3 championships this decade and had a record of 18-0. The Giants were a team that was 10-6 and was the 5th seed in the NFC playoffs. Their starting QB was erratic & inconsistent, their star Defensive End almost retired, and their coach was on the hot seat. This was not a team that would defeat a dynasty.

However in one of the greatest runs of all time they would win 3 road games and beat NE. The drive at the end with all the clutch plays are what the NFL is about heart and desire. The NFL's favorite term is Any Given Sunday and the idea that on any given Sunday if you have enough guts,talent, and determination you can win.

In the end the team with the maligned quarterback, the despised head coach, and the special teamer playing wide receiver won the championship. This was not only a legendary because of who won but how they won.
