On WFAN: Jim Burt Talks Super Bowl, Giants’ Collapse
NEW YORK (WFAN) – Ex-Giants nose tackle Jim Burt joined Boomer & Carton on an icy Wednesday morning to reminisce about his playing days in New York.
For Burt, a two-time Super Bowl champion, watching the Giants lose a 21-point fourth quarter lead to the Philadelphia Eagles was a difficult pill to swallow.
“I just think that when Bill Parcells was coaching, we had a lead in the first quarter, we’re killing the clock,” Burt said about the Giant’s December meltdown. “I don’t want to be critical, because I don’t have any idea what happens inside those closed walls of the Giants.
“Just watching the game, there’s so many things that were done undisciplined for that to happen, forget about the punt return at the end.”
Do you think Parcell’s Giants would have blown that lead? Sound off in the comments below…
