Super Bowl XLVI Final Game Notes of the Season

NEW YORK – That was one heck of a way to end a great season. The Giants defeat the New England Patriots 21-17 in Indianapolis. It took a fourth quarter comeback to win a second Super Bowl for Big Blue as QB Eli Manning wins his second Super Bowl MVP Award. Most seem to agree this win puts Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, you can include myself among them. There really is no way to describe the joy I’m feeling now and will feel for a very long time. I’m stuck someplace between numb and bursting with energy. Some where in between shocked and exhausted. I’m running on empty but so happy that it doesn’t matter at this point. The true blue fans have been waiting and anticipating this moment and when it finally arrives, it’s wonderful. So enjoy it!

Thank you to the New York Giants organization including the Mara and Tisch families. Thank you to Head Coach Tom Coughlin, the rest of the coaches and players. Thank you GM Jerry Reese, who has done an outstanding job, since taking over for Giants legend Ernie Accorsi. Go back and read all of my articles about Mr. Reese and you will see I have always been a fan of his work and have praised his draft skills and player transactions. Some of his moves however, had even me scratching my head this past offseason. In the NFL Lockout riddled 2011 year, players were coming and going at will in the NFL and the G-men lost some key players like WR Steve Smith, TE Kevin Boss, C Shaun O’Hara and OL Rich Seubert to retirement or contract situations. Then they lost CB Terrell Thomas, LB Clint Sintim, OT William Beatty, WR Domenik Hixon, LB Jonathan Goff and about ten more guys to the dreaded IR list (injured reserve). 2011 marks three straight years of injury epidemics for the G-men with at least 12 going on the season ending IR list, per year, that’s about 20% of the team going down for three straight years. But the Giants and Jerry Reese made all the right moves that had this team clicking by the end of the season. Congrats you are now Super Bowl Champions!

I thought singers Kelly Clarkson and Madonna did a good job with their respective areas of the nights entertainment. I thought NBC could have done a better job with the trophy presentation and post game stuff but thats why we have remote controls right? I also noticed audio problems coming from the NBC channel during the game. I suggest that Giants fans out there savor this moment and really enjoy this win for a couple of days. Do not get into any talks about the draft or who is signing what contract and when, just relax for a few days and enjoy winning the Super Bowl.

    You cannot say enough how this was a total team effort. Eli made some incredible throws, MM, Nicks and Cruz made some great catches, Tuck and the Defense was solid and Special Teams, namely Weatherford, and the play of Hynoski, Snee, Blackburn and JPP was huge. As Tuck has been saying, 53 playing as one!!

    It was great seeing the involvement of the guys on IR supporting the team, like Weatherspoon, Thomas, Hixon and the rest. This is a class organization, as compared to the Pats who cut a player the night before the big game and the replacement player does not even see a minute.

    It is going to be a great off season!!

      Hello AJ, can you say wow? What a terrific game for the fans and to be honest I was nervous the entire game. A fourth quarter comeback to get your second Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP? Manning is eternal now. Great game and great fans. I haven’t been this happy in a while. Go Giants!

  2. Insane. Wow. Magical. How else can this season and game be summed up? Trailing for most of the game and then Eli pulls the win out of nowhere AGAIN!

    The win was made even better by the fact that the pub I was in was full of cocky Pats fans! Never saw a bar empty out as quick in my life after the game was over!

    I don’t know how else to describe such an amazing, outstanding, absorbing and enthralling season and the ending of that game pretty much typified the heart-attack inducing stuff we’ve had to go through all season! Thankfully it was all worth it in the end as every single person in the organization contributed something to this incredible achievement!

    Congrats to the champs and all the players, coaches etc. who made this happen!

      What an incredible season we’ve had Patrick. I still have to pinch myself to be sure it is real. I’m glad you had a great time and can celebrate a Super Bowl Championship buddy! We are all in and believers!

      • Might seem like a silly question but does anyone know if an official DVD of the game will be released by the Giants or what? Would love to be able to re-live again and again until next season!

        • Anonymous says:

          Thats not silly at all Pat, you can click on the Giants banners on the right side of the website here to go to the Giants official store!

        • Anonymous says:

          Hey Pat, click the Giants banners on the sides go to the Giants official store. I saw the DVD you’re looking for there, I believe it’s $24.99 dollars.

            • Got any idea if there’s one including the highlights of the entire season?

              • robdomaine says:

                I think those DVDs include the season highlights but if you wait a couple of weeks, the price will drop some. I bought mine the first day back when the Giants won Super Bowl XLII for like 25 dollars and then I saw the same thing like a month later for 10 bucks, so its up to you if you want to wait or buy it now. There will surely be another DVD made before its all said and done but now you know where you can get the stuff.

    • robdomaine says:

      Good stuff Bobby, we did it man! I’m going to take a day or two to really enjoy this win and then dig into offseason stuff. I hope you had a great time with family and enjoyed yourself. Who knows when this will happen again right? Although I must say that I think they will win another ring before Eli Manning retires. My original prediction said Manning would have at least 2 Super Bowl rings, that has already come true and with Manning having another 7 or 8 years in his career left to work with (hopefully many more years), I think he will win at least one more.

    Oh my GOD,rob,the samurai poem,you have to do another at the start of the 2012 season,its our tradition now.we cannot break the tradition lol.

Plus we will have a new bunch of rookies carrying helmets and singing happy birthday in a diaper to the mess hall. Thanks for the invite buddy and enjoy your weekend. God Bless!
