    Re: Super Bowl XLII: New York Giants vs New England Patriots

    Wes freakin' Welker of all people fell into my lap in my fantasy draft yesterday (it was like the 5th round or something and on both of my lists that I got from teh interwebs he was ranked really high), so I had to take him. Luckily I have pretty much zero other rooting interest for every other pick on my team, which is good, but this one choice is bugging me out because I really really really dislike him and now have to somewhat "root" for him .

    I've got some bad news.

    The Patriots could have another problem. Wes Welker, who tied for the NFL lead with 112 receptions last season, left with a rib injury in the second quarter and didn't return. The team did not comment on his condition.

    I doubt Brady will see the field. They held out Moss the entire preseason last year, figure they'd be just as, if not more cautious with #12

I hate the idea of stopping all the momentum and having the starters not play that last week.
    Agreed, I should've phrased my previous post better. By "resting the starters", I didn't mean not having them play at all, I meant if the Pats are up by 30 by the 3rd quarter, they should take them out. Then again, Brady might have to stay in during the whole game, seeing how awful our backup QB's are. Okay, Gutierrez is decent, O'Connell shows potential but he's still a rookie, and Cassel is a disaster. A complete disaster. That guy needs to be let go, like, right now.

    Today is the one year anniversary of the greatest moment in Giants history. It's hard to believe a full year has passed. I'll be throwing on the DVD and reading throw this thread.

    In my defense, we all thought that before the season. Cassel was awful in his preseason games and to this day I can't fully comprehend how he became this good this quickly.

    Randy Moss....

    He has a decent arm and can run but Randy Moss can make a decent QB look great.

    Kinda like Eli and Plaxico. Eli is better than Cassel of course but Plaxico makes Eli look better because even when Plaxico isn't making catches in the field he is still drawing attention from the defensive backs so the other Receivers are going to be open for catches.


    I believe if you can put a decent QB in a good scheme where he has 1 top WR and the rest are good to recent WR, an decent O-line and a good RB then that QB is going to get very good in a short period of time.

    Beside it isn't like he was brand new and fresh. He been with the Pats since 2005 so he knew the system pretty well.

    Re: Super Bowl XLII: New York Giants vs New England Patriots

    I agree with you about Randy, but I think Wes Welker had just as big an impact, if not even bigger, on Cassel's development as Randy.

    True because Cassel has another "Go To" guy and now the Defensive backs have to pick their posion. Either double cover Randy and man to man on Wes or Double cover Wes and man on Randy. I most cases they would rather get beat by a short play than beat by Randy on a long play.

    Re: Super Bowl XLII: New York Giants vs New England Patriots

    patriots just trademarked 19-0 and perfect season all these years later. Just shows you how bitter they are up there still. This loss devastated the franchise and they never recovered. Brady/belichick are lucky they weren't let go after 07. Trademark 19-0 and perfect season when you didn't win? what? lol. Worst loss in sports history, This organization is a disaster.

    Turns out he's right: https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/201...bowl-xlii-loss

    The New England Patriots have trademarked "19–0" and “Perfect Season” through their parent company, The Kraft Group, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.

    The trademark comes nine years after the New York Giants defeated the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, which ended New England's hopes of going 19–0.
    Hell of a bump.

    There is going to be some sort of 10-year commemoration and the Patriots want to be in full control of the marketing. Wait. Watch. See.

    Surely you can't be serious about the organization being a disaster

    This thread reminds me of DaBomber25. He is a Yankees/Pats fan who hasn't posted since the game took place.
