    Giants SB MVP - Ravens Pollard

    Any doubts that if Gronk was 100% the Pats make at least a few more plays and they score at least 7 more?  Pollard really is a Pats killer (and he enjoys it)

    "IF" Gronk was 100% he would get something near what he got in Week 9.

    BB should have gone for the 4 and 11.  It would be better than kicked the ball to Manning.

    1. Worst case scenario, if not converted, the ball stays at 45.
    2. Best case scenario, converted, the drive continues...kill more time off the clock.
    3. Or throw deep, if lucky, caught at the 10-yd or TD.  Interception would be okay since it was that deep.  

    PUNT WAS NOT THE OPTION.   You went for 4-13 on the 50, 4-2 on the 25....why not here!!!!! The Super Bowl trophy was on the platter for the taken.  You were coaching not to lose...just like Norv Turner!

    Any doubts? Yeah, he wasn't 100% healthy...so we'll never know.

    These hypotheicals never work. If Gronk was on the field healthy, that couldve changed the GMEN game plan....maybe Eli wouldve stepped up his game even more, knowing the game couldve been a shootout.

    They beat us at Gillette without Nicks and Bradshaw. The Pats should've/could've been able to beat the Giants without Gronk.

    Eli was the Giants MVP. Dont take that away from him

    Did you see the video of him dancing at the after party? It didn't look like there was any lingering injury.

    Easy to look back and say this. Punting was the RIGHT option.
    1. They had three Timeouts to the Giants One. In a close game, that's a huge advantage on defense.
    2. Up until that point, the defense only gave up 13 points.
    3. Offense was not clicking at all late in the game, at one point, Brady was 20-23..he finished 7-18.
    4. 4th and 11 is too long.

    I'm assuming the 4-13 youre talking about was the Super Bowl. It was on the 31 of NYG, not the 50. BB probably shouldve kicked it then...Reason why he didnt, many believe, is because Gostkowski kicked the kickoff out of bounds.

    4th and 2 also didn't work out...but it was 4th and 2, not 4th and 11. Big difference.
