I'll give this a new title Gary if that is OK as I save some of these off for the record.

I am on the Giants at 28 from before the last day win against Dallas but opposed them last week. To be honest I'll oppose them again tonight to more or less neutralise my lovely 28 pick back in December. don't ask me why, some of the reason is that they have become too public now.
All that said it is truly amazing how many people whose opinion I would respect are not only tipping New York but punting them as well.

Personally I thought New England in a dome with Brady playing at his best would be hard to beat on the night. I'd certainly rather be on him that Eli late on if it comes down to sudden death

Its a good match up although the wagon jumping on the day by people that know nothing about American Football is hard to take on the likes of Twitter etc..

I can't remember what a down and yardage was but I think it was 1st or 2nd and goal. So hey if you really wanted Bradshaw to drop on the 1 you coulda just taken a couple of knees and it would have basically been the same thing.

Bradshaw the most relieved man in the USA. Not sure why the comms were asking what he was up to? He knew exactly what he was doing. Delayed the TD for as long as he could, but he wanted to be the man who won the Super Bowl.

Thing is......Green Bay Packers clearly the best team in the NFL last year, was just a mystery why they put themselves in such a difficult position to begin with.  Giants did well, but imo not really any better or worse than the 7 or 8 better teams who are all about the same.

So happy for Eli

For those of you who don't know the story, he was asked on ESPN Radio in NY if he thought was 'elite' to which he said that he felt he was.  The guy got so much stick for comparing himself to Brady it was crazy.  For him to get through that ropey November and then beat Brady is simply brilliant.  Couldn't have been scripted any better.
