    We all know RHP in general wants the Giants to win.

    Why the will
    -Underdogs - not as much pressure / media talk.
    -They've played the Patriots, so have a keen read on how they play. But will they utilize this, or will they go conservative?
    -They will force the Patriots to throw the ball.
    -Most Americans have polled that they support the Giants - there are more Pats haters than lovers, perhaps the crowd will be slightly Giants edge'd, being from NY and all.

    Why the won't
    -The Patriots are good at keeping composure.
    -The Patriots are good at protecting the QB, while they are even better at sacking the QB, or stopping the run.
    -The Patriots are good.
    -The Patriots have some cheating scheme planned 😉
    -The Patriots have ALOT of playoff experience. Does Eli Manning? No. He will be nervous. Giants cannot have a nervous, young QB.

    My Prediction: Patriots: 34. Giants: 20.

    heres more reason why to support that the pats will lose:

    In the regular season, the pats have won games by an average of 19.6 points, the highest game they have won in the post season in by 11.

    In 2 games, tom brady has thrown 3 picks, only 5 less then what he threw in all 16 starts in the regular season, meaning that tom brady has thrown 37% of his interceptions back in one game then that of which he threw all season.

    Randy Moss has only caught 2 passes for 32 all post season after breaking jerry rices td record. Is'nt this the time where recivers are supposed to stand out?

    The Patriots have allowed an average of 330.5 offensive yards per game in the post season, thats just over 40 yards more then the average they have had all regular season

    They cheated against a team going for the #6 draft pick

    They have maintained their perfection by their own mistakes and bargaining with the refs. False start against the ravens for one more play? Come on.

    Need i continue?

    Pats deny report that worker filmed Rams before XXXVIAssociated Press
    Updated: February 2, 2008, 7:31 PM EST 1287 comments RSS digg blog email print A member of the New England Patriots' video staff taped the St. Louis Rams' last walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl, a Boston newspaper reported Saturday.

    The NFL, however, said it was satisfied this was not another Spygate.

    "We were aware of the rumor months ago and looked into it. There was no evidence of it on the tapes or in the notes produced by the Patriots, and the Patriots told us it was not true," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press.

    Citing an unidentified source, the Boston Herald reported that a Patriots employee recorded the Rams' walkthrough at the Superdome in the New Orleans a day before the Super Bowl. New England beat the heavily favored Rams 20-17 its first NFL title.

    The Herald reported that a source close to the Patriots in the 2001 season said the team held a walkthrough at the Superdome in New Orleans before the game on Feb. 3, 2002. After the Patriots took a team picture, a member of their video department stayed inside the stadium and taped the Rams' session.

    It was not known whether the cameraman was told by the Patriots to film the practice or what he did with the tape, the Herald said. The Rams were two-touchdown favorites, but lost on Adam Vinatieri's last-second field goal.

    "The suggestion that the New England Patriots recorded the St. Louis Rams' walkthrough on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI is absolutely false. Any suggestion to the contrary is untrue," Patriots spokesman Stacey James told the AP.

    Rams spokesman Rick Smith, reading a statement from team president John Shaw, said, "At this point, we have no comment."


    The unbeaten Patriots will try to win their fourth Super Bowl in seven seasons Sunday when they play the New York Giants.

    Early this season, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fined New England coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and docked the team $250,000 and a first-round draft pick after the Spygate scandal. The Patriots were accused of videotaping New York Jets defensive coaches as they signaled to players.

    New England did not have a walkthrough Saturday. The Giants held one at the Arizona Cardinals' practice facility.

    A walkthrough is done without pads or helmets, giving teams a chance to practice their formations.

    Goodell spent much of his state of the game address Friday talking about that episode. He said he did not think the Patriots used such tapes to win previous titles.

    "There was no indication that it benefited them in any of the Super Bowl victories," he said.

    Goodell also defended his decision to destroy notes and videotapes linked to the Spygate, saying "there was no purpose for them."

    Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., who sent Goodell a letter asking for explanation, said Goodell's response "didn't make any sense at all."

    With that article, I conclude that the St. Louis Rams have beaten the Patriots in Superbowl XXXVI due to the forfeit of the title, which has come in due process because the Patriots cheated.

    Thus, the St. Louis Rams have a better franchise than the New England Patriots.

    Even if this were true, somehow I doubt that filming the Rams' walk-through session caused Kurt Warner's thumb to get injured in the 1st quarter, leading to wobbly off-target passes and two early interceptions and a completely wasted first half by the St. Louis team. Rams fans, go stuff some Ted Drewes concrete in your cakehole so we don't have to hear your revisionism, you commies!

    One of the Patriot's defensive players grabbed the thumb and tried to break it, successfully.
