How Do You Beat Belichick and The New England Patriots?

NEW YORK – You can be sure of one thing on Super Bowl Sunday, the New England Patriots are going to play unconventional football. The Giants special teams group will need to play their best game of the year. I expect Big Blue to win 38-27 as I’ve said before. Giants DC Perry Fewell will need to have his head screwed on right for this one and stay focused on the game plan. The Giants defense is going to hit Tom Brady often and knock him down every few plays. Keep an eye on those speedy running backs of the Patriots on the outside. I would work on that a lot and defending play action. Brady will throw five or six bomb passes in this game and at least one will get intercepted. Corey Webster deserves a Super Bowl INT for his season.

Some specific players that will need to bring their game to another level are DT Linval Joseph, DT Chris Canty, WR Jerrel Jernigan, LB Jacquian Williams, CB Aaron Ross, RB Ahmad Bradshaw and TE Jake Ballard. There are other players too but if these guys played the game of the year for themselves personally, the Giants might have the lead the entire game. With only one win left until NFL immortality, the Giants must follow the leader and relax as Eli Manning does. He is calm, cool and deadly. The Giants players and coaches know they can beat this Patriots team, they must not let that get to them. Stay focused and relaxed and enjoy the ride, because Eli Manning will not be denied. Giants fans will most likely see a lot of the ‘Nascar’ defense with all defensive ends lined up. This will create havoc and force a turnover or two possibly, hopefully.

My pre-game defensive stars of the game predictions are DE Jason Pierre-Paul, LB Mathias Kiwanuka, DE Osi Umenyiora, S Antrel Rolle and CB Corey Webster. The Giants have five main threats from the Patriots offense, they are QB Tom Brady, WR Wes Welker, TE Rob Gronkowski, TE Aaron Hernandez and RB Danny Woodhead. The Giants offensive threats are deeper then the Patriots when you look at it. The offensive weapons for Big Blue include QB Eli Manning, RB Ahmad Bradshaw, WR Hakeem Nicks, WR Victor Cruz, WR Mario Manningham, RB Brandon Jacobs and TE Jake Ballard. Giants special teams coach Tom Quinn is going to need a solid game plan for the Patriots in this game. Expect the desperate Belichick to turn into trickster if the game is close.

How would you stop the Patriots offense if you were the Giants defensive coordinator?

side note: The New Jersey Governor’s media department sent me an email asking me about a Giants victory parade and where it should be held. I believe there should be a celebration in both New York and New Jersey. MetLife stadium seems to make the most sense for a New Jersey celebration.

    I agree wholeheartedly about Corey Webster. BTW – do you know what those tee-shirts represent that Cruz and Sash had on? Something about Prayers in the shower with Webster kneeling??

    Regarding our DC, I am hoping that he uses JPP all over the line of scrimmage, along with occasional blitzes from Jacquian. I think press coverage on TE’s with help over the top. Good strong tackling to eliminate YAC. Definite disguising of the D is also important. I think Canty, Joseph and Bernard are key as well with pressure up the middle, as well as hands up when possible to disrupt passing lanes over the middle, which is where Brady can do most of his damage.

    Regarding your side note about the governor. If we were to win, a parade in NJ does not compare to NYC. Last time they went from NYC to Meadowlands. I think gov has to accept that this is a NYC centric area and team. It’s history goes back to Yankee Stadium (anyone here of the greatest game ever played?). The governor needs to accept that so much of the states revenue is a result of NYC and stop this silly border war. I thought he was a Jets fan.

      Webster has played extremely well this year, I’m glad I’m not the only one to notice. When T2 comes back we will be even better. I’m very relaxed for the Super Bowl, much like I was for the Packers. Not overconfident but confident.

    Not only am i ALL IN,but I REALLY BELIEVE the ny football giants win going away.and to me the key is getting up on the pats early.and with eli and the receivers he has,i believe the g-men will get up on the pats 10 to 14 points early.the g-mens defense will smell blood and start teeing off on brady because he will be forced out of his comfort zone by the g-mens front 4.brady will be under pressure to throw the ball and make big mistakes too the giants secondary players just waiting for the ball down field and picking brady off at least 3 times in the game.the more the game goes on,you will see a frustrated belichick on the sidelines.but most importantly,you will see a frustrated brady because he will be thinking here we go again, deja vu all over again.this is the key factor of winning for the giants,the fact that they beat the patriots when they get up on them,brady and the pats will feel the pressure and come apart leading to an easy nygiants victory getting coughlin his second superbowl win and a ticket to the hall of fame and eli will be the greatest nygiants quarterback in there storied history, and his best is yet to come earning eli his place in the hall of fame .as far as trick plays go for the pats,dont count on it,the giants coaching staff will be ready for anything coming there way,just like they were when the packers tried to go onside kick.nygiants 37-ne patriots 14.i thanked GOD already for the giants victory,therefore it is easy my friend,eli and the g-men got this one.

      Hey Bobby, me too man I know how you feel. I’m pumped up for this game. I don’t think the Patriots are going to know what hits them. By the time it registers with them, the game will be out of hand. I feel really good about the Giants winning this game. Enjoy the weekend!
