The Super Bowl Wrap
Giants, Patriots, and Packers
What did we learn from Super Bowl XLVI?
That Eli Manning, even though he doesn't have gaudy numbers or the so called "wow" factor, well, he's still elite. Two Super Bowl victories, with two Super Bowl winning drives.
That the Giants are the first 9-7 team to win a Super Bowl. It pays to get hot, at the end of the year, and have to win your way into the postseason.
You feel horrible for Oak Creek native and former Badger TE Travis Beckum tearing the ACL in his right knee. So maybe he feels a little better, getting that Super Bowl ring.
Bill Belichick needs a class, on losing with class. Blowing off NBC Sports for the postgame interview, giving a staffer the stare of death...lose the same way you win. With dignity. I'm sure he would have found a mic if the outcome was different.
That the Patriots 31st ranked pass defense let them down, just like the Packers 32nd ranked pass defense did against the Giants as well.
Tom Brady is an incredible quarterback, and 5 Super Bowls is nothing to sneeze at. But he can't be talked about in the same category as 4-time winners Joe Montana or Terry Bradshaw any more.
And how does his involve the Packers? There's a lot of twitter chatter that the Packers could kick off the 2012 season in NYC, against the Giants.
