Neil Keefe is joined by Boston Herald Patriots beat writer Ian Rapoport to talk about Super Bowl XLVI from the Patriots’ side with just four days to go.
Despite the substantial turnover in lineups for this Super Bowl, the quarterbacks for both teams remain the same. I’ll rephrase. The quarterbacks are the same, yet, Eli Manning is in no way the same quarterback.
Oh man! Manningham. Hakeem Nicks. Victor Cruz. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Neil Keefe watched the NFC Championship with his roommates and wrote down his thoughts during it. Here’s his retro recap of the Giants’ 20-17 overtime win over the 49ers.
Super, but not in typical fashion. The Giants heavily relied on the arm of Eli Manning and two game-changing special teams plays to outlast the 49ers.
“You hate to be the last guy that had the ball, to give it away in that fashion and to lose a game of this magnitude,” said Kyle Williams.
Leading-up to the NFL’s Championship Weekend Boomer could be heard preaching about the importance of a little thing called ‘ball-security’. Well low-and-behold, ‘ball-security’ played a big role in the Giants win.
Lawrence Tynes kicked an overtime-winning field goal to send the Giants to Super Bowl 46. Giants are going to Indianapolis!
Tough luck, Frisco fans. Eli Manning is feeling just fine.
Worry not, Big Blue backers. Eli Manning returned to Giants practice today.
The thought of backup David Carr starting Sunday for All-Pro quarterback Eli Manning is enough to make Giants fans sick.
Nicks is still Eli Manning’s go-to guy, and it has never been more obvious than in the playoffs.
The Giants can match Aaron Rodgers point for point. Credit for that goes to Eli Manning and his receiving corps which has emerged as one of the NFL’s elite.
Time to go on alert, Green Bay. The Giants are coming to Lambeau Field.
Being embarrassed in the playoffs is becoming a habit for Atlanta.
