Super Bowl Thoughts & Observations

First of all, I’d like to congratulate the NFL Champion New York Giants and all their fans.  Now on to the observations.

If Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Donte Stallworth were response to last year’s playoff loss, should Steve Hutchinson, Walter Jones, Alan Feneca, and Jeff Saturday will be expecting calls soon.

I wonder if the Patriots will go for it on 4th and long instead of kick 49 yard Field Goals next year.

Whichever announcer said that Peyton was more happy that his brother won the Super Bowl than when the Colts won last year should be banned from speaking for 24 hours.

I used to like Ahmad Bradshaw.  After he has to talk and push and shove after every play wore thin.

I guess the “In the Grasp” rule is no longer in effect.  I’m not sure Michael Vick could have gotten out of that one.  Eli made one of the most memorable plays in Super Bowl history.  The catch wasn’t bad either.

I am not ready for the Eli and Peyton commercials.  I may have to poke my eyes out.

If Rodney Harrison did what he does best, hit, maybe David Tyree doesn’t make that catch.

Good luck getting the big bucks out of New England Asante. 

Would it have killed the Patriots to run a draw play? 

Did Richard Seymour play?

Why does Bill Belichick always do the wrong thing after a game ends?  He’s like the opposite of Tony Dungy. 

Where was the gray sweatshirt Bill?  Don’t break out a new one for the Super Bowl. 

Martina Navratilova did a great job for the Halftime Show.  Just kidding.  Tom Petty did quite well, although I think he should retire “American Girl”.  I don’t think he can hit the right key anymore.

Why was Plaxico so generous when predicting New England’s offensive output?  Tom Brady is probably still feeding on all of that crow.

Wes Welker IS that good.  I think the Patriots may have won if Welker had about 20 receptions.  I wish they just fed him all game long because the Giants had no answer for him.

Like Jules said in Pulp Fiction “personality goes a long way”.  The Giants sure played better without Jeremey Shockey and Tiki Barber.

I think Strahan made the right call when he decided to play this year.

Justin Tuck is really GOOD.

Randall Gay got burned so badly all game that he didn’t even record a tackle.  That’s bad.  It’s one thing to give up a catch, but to not even be in position to make the tackle after it is pathetic. 

I’m glad this Super Bowl was more about the game than the commercials.  I could care less about the stinkin’ commercials. 

Change is good.  Tom Coughlin wasn’t the hard-ass he usually is.  I bet he likes the results. 

This loss doesn’t sting as much as a Red Sox loss would.  I guess because there are too many jerks on the team, starting with the head coach, to get as emotionally attached to them.

Speaking of the Red Sox, when do they start?  Just kidding.  Kinda.  The Patriots did have a fabulous season.  They just didn’t have the fairytale ending.

    Randy should come to Philly. Tiki must be kicking himself.
    The New York Media has been slaggin on Manning all season.
