Momma Said KNOCK YOU OUT!

Not so fast, Francis.

BIG BLUE put the smack on you!

Not only did the Giants defeat the Patriots last night, the New York defense put a cap on the most prolific offense in the history of the NFL, holding New England to a mere two touchdowns in a heart-stopping 17-14 victory over the Pats at University of Phoenix Stadium.

And they pulled it off the best way they know – they got to the quarterback.

The Giants sacked Tom Brady [stats] five times and hurried him nine times. With the exception of the Patriots’ fourth-quarter drive that briefly put them back in the lead, 14-10, Brady never really got into the rhythm that helped him break the single-season touchdown record.

Eli Manning, David Tyree show why Giants are Super this night

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The best Super Bowl of them all really ended in the left corner of the end zone at University of Phoenix Stadium, one last ball in the hands of Plaxico Burress, who called this one the way Joe Namath called one once. Eli Manning delivered that ball to Burress, delivered it the way great quarterbacks are supposed to deliver the ball at the end of a game like this, delivered it the way Joe Montana did in a Super Bowl in Miami against the Bengals. And now it wasn’t just Super Bowl XLII ending this way, even with 35 seconds still left on the clock. This was the ending to one of the great sports stories of all time, any sport, in New York or anywhere else.

Eat me, Fenway.

The Cowboys couldn’t stop them and the Packers couldn’t stop them at Lambeau and the Patriots couldn’t stop them yesterday. And as much as a money throw that last throw was, as much of a money play it was from Eli, it wasn’t the play that will be remembered from this game. The play that will be remembered, a play that goes in with the best Super Bowl plays ever made, is the one you had to see to believe in that last drive, the one Eli made to David Tyree four plays before the winning touchdown to Burress. The one where Eli seemed to disappear underneath the pocket and then break free like a swimmer coming out of the water.

“CANYON OF HEROES” TIME, BABY!”

I (la dee daa), love a parade…

G-MEN, you SOBs!
