Eli's Comin'....

A funny thing happened on the way to the NFL's dream match-up of Favre and the Pack against the Perfect Pats...Eli Manning decided it was time to come of age. Not in that, "Hop on my back, boys" kind of way. More like the, "I'm guiding this ship, and not making any mistakes" kind of way.
As for the Packers in general and Brett Favre in particular, a magical season ends with a thud as this epic game became "Bizarro-World". Brett Favre fails down the stretch and Plaxico Burress comes up clutch? It seemed that the "Lambeau Mystique" was in full form as the Packers got numerous breaks, but in the end, it was Manning and the Giants who pulled through with a Third Time is the Charm kick.
So now we get Yankees-Red Sox...in reverse, with the Patriots in the roll of "Evil Empire". For the Giants, this would be an improbable win...like being down 3 games to none...and down to your last out....against Mariano Rivera...How did that work out? You know what they say about payback!

I don't like the Patriots and I don't have any respect for the team. Has everyone just forgotten that they were busted for cheating at the beginning of the season? Gee...I wonder how they got to be so good? They don't desire to be playing in the Super Bowl. They should have gotten punished more...they just received a slap on the wrist. -Rudedog
