Really like Eli Manning.

sorry me no likee cowboys country!!

Jeese all theese giants fans make me sick. The only reason they even one last year was because 1. The refs didn't know how to call a safety in the first quarter. 2. GRONK!!!!!! He hurt his leg and was way slower. If you watched the super bowl on the last play Brady threw a Hail-Mary that gronk was three feet behind. If he was at full strenght he would've caught the ball and the giants wouldn't be worl champs right now.

You think that's bad??Think 2007 with the head catchbut still pats rule

hey baseballjet31,i saw the super bowl and Gronk was way behind.
Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom Brady is an arrogant jerk! Eli is an awesome team player. And this is from a cowboys fan

Giants are awesome! Pats are better but Im a Giants fan.

I'm sure the pats have won games with terrible refs.


go giants they rock

You are 100% correct EagleFellow!!!
