    In response to 42AND46's comment:

    tuck rule, john kasey, billy cundiff...

     



    Walt Coleman properly interpreted the rule as written

    If the FG is good, the Ravens only make it to OT. No guarantee of victory

    Kasey out of bounds was a bonehead play. Good teams take advantage of bonehead plays

    But, fair enough. I can admit the Patriots were the "beneficiaries of a little good fortune" along the way

    Meanwhile if someone here just hints the NYG got "lucky" in SB 42/46, you interpret it as a personal insult, insist luck had nothing to do with it, and get all "Eli 2, Tom 0" on them

    But okay...

    Hey, all I said was that the NYG caught a break when Welker dropped the ball. That doesnt mean, I think they were lucky to win the game. Good teams take advantage of breaks. The Giants still had to stop the Pats on 3rd down and then after getting the ball back, drive the length of the field to score (albeit against an inept Pats D). They performed well under pressure and won fair and square. A bad team would have folded or found a way to lose.

    One other thing: On the tuck rule play, Brady got whacked in the head by an Oakland defender. No penalty! If anyone got gypped on that play, it was the New England Patriots. They should have been awarded 15 yards for the personal foul. With improved field position, they probably would have scored a TD rather than settle for the FG and won in regulation. Adam Vinatieri would have been just a footnote to the game

    Boy, Coleman really blew that one, huh?!?
