In response to nhsteven's comment:
Yawn; I wondered what the over/under would be on this board for this thread topic today. I and mostly everyone else knew this was not the Giant's season after the punchless Ravens game. Even if they backed into the PS, they were done. However, it's comforting to know that the glorious championship from last year still burns brightly for those not giving the Giants due credit, plus, of course, a little bit of luck courtesy of Welker, Hynoski, the PATS D & Kyle Williams. Pats also had luck in their SB runs (and were actually cheated out of another SB by way of the AFC Championship game vs Ind, when the Colts turned up the heat in the Bldg to tire the beat up Pats out; I'm surprised that gets little notoriety), and even in the Ravens Playoff game last yr. NYG were also lucky, I guess, in the PATS - NYG Regular Season game last yr. Do I see a pattern here? As Branch Rickey said, "Luck is the residue of design", and calling a team lucky is all too humorous to the opponents fans. Most teams need it, unless they're the '07 PATs, oops, I mean the '72 Dolphins.
But fear not, PATs fans, the team is the class of the AFC East again, and have a good chance again to win the whole thing. Maybe then you'll let this go.
"A little help"? So it was by NY design that Kyle Williams made the bonehead play of all time and let the ball hit him in the leg? It was the residue of design that the ball took a hop he didnt expect? Thats not a little help, thats totally making someting happen that would not have otherwise. Williams fields that ball or lets it go, you dont win that game. I know it, you now it, everybody knows it. Only NY fans wont admit it. It was the residue of design that Bernard Pollard rolled up on Gronkowski's ankle, tearing two ligaments? Why do you bother posting this stuff on a NE forum? Nobody but you and jints buys it.
Whoever said differently? But it DID happen, didn't it? And there were other plays in that and other games, weren't there? And if the Giants had a Gronkowski type injury, and if their fans used that as an excuse, you'd be singing a different tune, wouldn't you?
