With a living room full of people, and a kitched full of food, we had quite the Super Bowl Party last night. At least a few of it are paying for it with our voices this morning. There are many folks more eloquent than I that will describe what happened last night, but I think that the entire night can be boiled down into the incredible play in Eli’s last drive.
On 3rd and 10, with no one open, the pocket starts to collapse on Eli. The hearts of all the giants fans in the room sink as we expect the inevitable sack. The Eli breaks the tackle, and another one, and another one. Some how he manages to break free completely and throw a 20 yard pass up the middle, caught in the most tenuous maner I’ve ever seen (one hand and a helmet). At that point you realized something, the Giants were not going to let anyone count them out. Eli believed he could win. Everything the Giants did in the last 3 minutes of the game showed that at the end of the day, they just wanted it more.
What an incredible game!
