I am sad to even post my playoff record, but it is a a pathetic 5-9
Season Total (Including playoffs) is 36-27-3
I am still up for the season, but not like I was before the postseason started.....
My current lean is the Giants. I feel they are a better team overall. Do I think their offense is as good as the Pats? No..... Do I think that their def is good enough to slow down the Pats enough to allow Eli to score more than Brady? Yes.
Giants already won this same game on the road this season. I understand it was a last minute drive by the Giants with a TD that happened 18 seconds(I think) before the end of the game... But they still beat NE in their own back yard.... This time they will be on neutral ground and Eli has already proven that he can win a Superbowl...Against NE in fact.
A lot of people are saying that there is no way that the Giants will beat NE again, not a 3rd time in a row... My question is why? Does anyone really think NE is that good?
The first team NE beat with a winning regular season record this year was Balt, and that game came down to a final 32 yard FG that was missed by Balt... By all means, that FG should have been good and the game should have went to OT.. And we might have a different game for the Superbowl.
I understand why the Pats are giving points, hell it is Tom Brady.. If it was a pick, the plays would be mostly on the Pats…. But should NE really be favored in the game? I really don’t think so, but this was the only way to get even plays for both sides. I think that if the Giants were favored by a little, I would actually still be leaning on the Giants… I think they should win this game outright and getting 3 points is a gift. Maybe it is bait as well. I don’t know.
So this is where my head is currently at... I might change my mind... I might place soon or I might wait to see if the line will move in my favor... I will post it as soon as I play it.... And hopefully I will finish the season off much better than I have been doing the rest of the post season.
