"The pass"....."The catch"....

Posted on: February 4, 2008 1:10 pm
There has been much talk about the play made by Manning to Tyree. Rightfully so I might add. To me it summed up Eli Manning in a nut shell. The entire Giants team really. First of all, when Eli rolled out of the pocket with a defender on his shirt tail, as close to being sacked as you can get, you could see the determination in that kid. You could almost see the hunger oozing out of him. He was not going to lose. I feel like even if the pass would have fallen incomplete it still would have been a great play. When Tyree went up for this ball you almost knew it was just meant to be caught. He showed the same determination in holding on to it, that Manning showed in getting the pass off to begin with. He was not letting go of that ball, the Giants were not letting go of that game. Of course the defense played remarkable. Brady, Im sure has never been so beat up before in his life. I was touched by the shots of Peyton cheering on his brother. I can imagine he was as happy as when he had won last year. Im neither a fan of the Giants nor the Patriots, but I have to say I am a fan of my "home boys". Eli, you did us proud my man. Congratulations to you, your team and all the fans.

"The pass"....."The catch"....

Bayou Bengal, I could not agree with you more. That pass and catch showed the shear determination of the entire team. I'm no Giant or Patriot fan, but I do know a great game when I see one. This Super Bowl in by book will go down as won of the best Super Bowls ever.  Archie and his wife have raised three stellar young men and two Super Bowl winner QB's.  My hats off to the entire Manning family, as the pride of New Orleans and Louisiana football traditions.

"The pass"....."The catch"....

 Congratulations to Eli, the Giants, and fans. It definitely came down to who wanted it more the defence gave it 100% on every down, Brady was getting hit left and right, the offence stepped up when they needed them the most. Pretty slow at the begining of the game but a lot of excitement in the forth quarter which made up for it. Even though it wasn't my team I would have to say not a bad Super Bowl.
