I want a good game. I want the NYG to have to drive down the field on the last possession of the game to decide who wins it all. Either they come up big and kick a field goal at the end to win it, or NE causes a huge turn-over or gets a big stop that seals a one point victory. I want a Superbowl that's that close. I could care less who actually wins the thing...

Pats. They made it this far with a perfect record, may as well seal the deal. Plus I like Tom Brady. ;-D

Giants -

1) They'll trump the oft mentioned Jets vs. Colts (Superbowl 3) game as the biggest upset in football history. I think it also opens up several great sports debates that will last for decades.

2) Nothing is more suitable than for a cheating coach to be DENIED the greatest season in history. It's even more torturous to come so close and fail in the very end... no doubt it would be loss that he'll be haunted by for the rest of his days. Harsh? Nah.

Where's the option for "Wants a plane to crash into the field, killing both teams"? :-D

I'm kidding.

Seriously though, what would really be a better game? One where arguably the best football team ever wins in blowout fashion like they've done all season long, or one where that same team loses on the biggest stage?

I'll take the underdog here, even if it is Eli Manning. I want to see Boston collectively crap themselves.

The Pats. The Pats could have easily lost 2 or 3 games this year and things would have been business as usual. But the fact that they trailed in the 2nd half/4th quarter of those games, and were able to come back and win those games, is a mark of a true champion. Having said that, I hope the Giants give them a good run and force Brady and friends to battle 60 minutes to scrape this one out.

This is actually pretty tough for me.

Case to root for Patriots/against the Giants: 19-0 would be impressive, I feel like people have been unfair to the Patriots all season despite my dislike for them, Eli is a crybaby, one of our neighbors is one of my brother's annoying friends and is a Giants fanatic, I don't like the Redskins

Case to root for Giants/against Patriots: I don't like the Patriots, Eli already got what he deserved because he asked to be traded away from what is now one of the most talented teams in the league, they're the underdog, AFF is a Pats fan

I guess I just don't care. Maybe a little preference for the Pats. But I definitely care more about the quality of the game (and possibly the commercials :-B ).

I'm a Jets fan and I am cheering for the Pats.
2 Reasons really..
1) I hate the Giants more than I hate the Pats
2) The reason for #1 is because all the Giants fans won't stop running there traps.

Let's go Pats :~( Where can I buy my Brady jersey ;-)

Mhmm.. I beg to differ. Weren't the Jets 16 or so point underdogs in that game? The Gmen as of right now are 11 point underdogs. I doubt that would beat it.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I just got a jersey from this guy and the quality was much better than I expected for the price. I'd love to see a Jets fan in a Brady jersey!! :-D
