Super Bowl XLII
Odell Beckham Jr. stunned the sports world Sunday night with an acrobatic, one-handed touchdown grab against the Dallas Cowboys. The play conjured memories of David Tyree’s “helmet” catch against the New England Patriots back in Super Bowl XLII.
“Seriously, I’ve got goals,” Coughlin said. “I’ve got things I want to get done. I’ve got a foundation. I’ve got a family. I’ve got all these things that I would still very much like to accomplish.”
Strahan didn’t take kindly to Sapp’s remark, tweeting, “You never cease to amaze me! Enjoy your moment. You don’t need to take a shot at me to justify yourself to other people.”
As far as matching up with the Giants goes, the Niners still have to take a backseat. Here’s two good reasons: The Giants are better at the quarterback position and at the head coaching slot.
Ready or not, the Giants’ quest to defend their Super Bowl championship starts tonight with the NFL’s season opener against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium. Here are the key matchups to watch.
Would Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning be Hall of Famers if their careers ended today? One legendary Giant certainly thinks so.
Giants lineman Chris Snee is looking to add as many Super Bowl rings as possible before he retires.

Though it would seem like an appropriate time for Giants head coach Tom Coughlin to step down, the upstate New York native is currently in talks with Giants owner John Mara about a contract extension, according to CBSSports.com.
“Hopefully we’ll have a lot more people at our party next weekend,” said Brady. Party next weekend? As in a championship parade?
Hey, who are you scoffing at? That was the feeling four years ago among a handful of Giants defenders when Tom Brady pooh-poohed Plaxico Burress’ prediction.
Eli Manning took home the MVP. Plaxico Burress had the game-winning catch. Tyree got the biggest prize in the 2008 Super Bowl — an unforgettable moment that forever will be his.
Watch out, Brady. The Giants are playing like a team possessed, as displayed Sunday in San Francisco.
The reality is that was almost four years ago, and much has changed as the Giants and Patriots prepare to meet for the first time in a regular-season game since Super Bowl XLII in Glendale, Ariz.
With the attention turning to Jets-Steelers and the upset of Sunday fading, let’s take one more look back at the events of Sunday by handing out some hardware.
