[QUOTE]In Response to Re: McGinnest said on ESPN Podcast today with Adam Jones that.... : How are people still not getting this? The score was low because the Giants intentionally kept the scoring low to improve their chances of winning. The Giants were capable of doing that because the Patroits defense allowed them to move the ball and take time of the clock every time they had the ball. The key to the Giants D stopping the Patriots O was the Giants O holding onto the ball for as long as possible and not letting Brady get touches.

So your argument is that the defense was to blame because the Giants offense succeeded in running a game plan that the Patriots offense SHOULD have run to keep Eli Manning off the field? The same game plan that won 3 previous Super Bowls for the Pats I might add.
The offense had the ball last, they whiffed on three straight dropped balls that were squarely in receivers hands. Fine, you "finesse" offense, high powered offense, fantasy football, throw 50 times a game guys got exactly what you wanted, Brady in the final minute with the ball in his hands; fail!!
What you all can't seem to realize is that the biggest failure on offense wasn't the dropped passes to end the game, but rather that the Giants simply had the better game plan to begin with and perhaps if the Pats had run the ball and played keep away, our defense wouldn't have spent 2/3rds of the game on the field and would have been fresh enough at the end of the game to tee off the way the Giants defense did.
BTW Babe, Gronkowski was very much active for this game so don't make excuses, our defense's best pass rusher (Andre Carter) and starting corner (Dowling) were actually inactive for this game so don't fall back on the old injury excuse.
Sad really, the Pats have lost three straight games to the Jints running the same BS game plan but somehow it's the defenses fault that the super high powered offense can't score enough points to win, moreover they can't control the time of possession either, because their very nature dictates that they either score quickly or go 3 and out... pathetic.
Either the high powered offense is the reason for our success or not, you can't have it both ways fellas? Our offense is a liability because if they ain't scoring the other team has more opportunities to... We had the ball, the offense blew it... choke on it.
