Default Re: SUPERBOWL 46

oh man best super bowl since superbowl 42. Im a huge giants fanthough so maybe im bias. I watched this game 5 times at least. Taking it all in. This was an amazing season not only because of the giants amazing run, But for all the records being broken. Drew Brees passing record, Darren Sproles all purpose yardage record, Arron Rodgers QB rating. 3 QBs threw for over 5000 yards.

I think after Victor Cruz caught that 99 yard TD pass again the Jets, The giants just never looked back. Absolutely AMAZING!!!!
