Everyone, Join The Big Blue Bandwagon

Yup, everyone in the sports media is sure doing it, so, why not you? They all thought Big Blue could do it, knew it from the first week. Yeah, sure.

Meanwhile, some thoughts from Greg Easterbrook

Stat of the Week No. 1: Eight times, the Super Bowl has paired two teams that met in the regular season and played a game decided by a touchdown or less. The regular-season losers are 7-1 in the subsequent Super Bowl.

Stat of the Week No. 2: New England averaged 37 points in the regular season and 22 points in the postseason.

Stat of the Week No. 3: Fourteen points was New England’s lowest scoring output of the season.

Stat of the Week No. 4: New England’s scoring in its final four appearances: 38 points, then 31, then 21, then 14.

Stat of the Week No. 5: After four seasons, Eli Manning is 36-28 as a starter and has a Super Bowl ring; after four seasons, Peyton Manning was 32-32 as a starter and lacked a playoff victory. Stat noted by Pat Kirwan of NFL.com.

Stat of the Week No. 6: Randy Moss averaged 1.4 touchdowns per game in the regular season and 0.3 touchdowns per game in the postseason.

Stat of the Week No. 7: In the regular season, Brady threw six touchdown passes for each interception; in the postseason, two touchdown passes for each interception.

Stats of the Week No. 8: In the closing moments, the Super Bowl crowd chanted “18 and 1! 18 and 1!”

Stat of the Week No. 9: The Giants finished 3-5 at home and 11-1 away from Giants Stadium.

Stat of the Week No. 10: It remains true — the regular-season NFL passing yardage leader has never gone on to win the Super Bowl in the same season.

Stat #11: last time the Patriots scored less then 20 points was 12/10/2006, when the Fins wooped them 21-0

Cheerleaders! Big Blue doesn’t have any, but, the Pats do have some honey’s!

    Read the NY POST and NY DAILY NEWS over the past week (NY Giants collectors items too), and for the GMEN to win 7 consecutive regular season road games, and four playofff games… is simply amazing in any sport! And still there are cheapshot gloom and doom sayers that just don’t get it!

    Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing is impossible.”

    Teach, I’m almost 51 years old and I saw history in my lifetime. Thank God for that blessing my friend and nobody will take it away from us!

    “Road warrior Giants won at the beach, on the ranch, in the frozen tundra and in the desert!” LUKE got it right.

    David slew Goliath but this time David was the GIANT…

    #1 and 3 NFL Super Bowl rings and only one SB loss, and the NY Giants sixth NFL championship over all…..
