Very very surprising..... but they did play well and did what it was needed to win...

They just did not execute... Brady got killed... so... we STILL have to hear about Miami... dang...

I was so glad to see the Giants win and prove my point.....Tom Brady is over rated. Knock him down a few times, and he won't make the throws.

I'm happy for the Giants as well. Many many years ago I met the Manning boys at a country type fair in Mississippi. Archie wasn't there but his wife(Olivia) and 2 of the 3 boys were there. Cooper and Eli Manning. Both were always saying 'yes sir...no sir'. Very well mannered. Just a top notch family. So it was easy for me to pull for the Giants. Plus I like an underdog anyway.

New York Giants win by a cat's whisk-er. What a great game.

Congrats to all the fans of the New York Giants.

72 Dolphins remain the only perfect Super Bowl Winner.

GOD BLESS US ALL

I was busy so i taped it,guess it was foolish of me to think i would get to watch that tape before some one gave away the score. Giants win!!!!
could have been titled a little more tactfully for those of us who had to tape the game

Sorry, but it is worth watching especially the last drive when the Giants were down 14 to 10 the best drive of almost any superbowl of late. Go and watch it!!

What a great Giants Defense. When the playoffs started I gave them no chance. They deserved that win yesterday!!

Awesome game, the best super bowl I have ever seen. Fighting right down to the end.
As for taping the game, if I ever tape a sports game with plans to watch it, I never browse the internet in the mean time. It is difficult to avoid scores, especially of games as big as this one.

Power was out due to a storm until an hour 'til game time, then the cable went out during the Star Spangled banner. Then the DVR decided to switch to the news before the game was over. But I got enough beer and popcorn time in.

What I find impressive is they had 4 losses in the regular season to GB, Dallas, and NE but found a way to win in the playoffs...It was about time that somebody knocked around Brady after they ran up the score early in the season...

While Green Bay wasn't the toughest team on the block, beating them IN Green Bay when the temp is below zero is no easy feat.
