Thank Goodness for the Giants
Man I'm sick of people talking about the Patriots as both a dynasty and the greatest team ever. Given the beating the Giants dished out to them today in Superbowl, hopefully thats over now. It was an exciting game and the score was close, but the Giants clearly outplayed the Patriots. And Tom Brady as one of the best QBs ever? What a joke.
3 Superbowl wins by 3 points each, the tuck rule against the Raiders, the confirmed cheating this year, the allegations of cheating in prior Superbowls, increased parity in the league and a heck of a lot of breaks going their way... The Patriots just haven't ever been dominant the way that 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers and other dynasties were. Even this year, they really got lucky to beat the Colts, Eagles, Chargers, Ravens and Giants. Sure great teams pull-out tough wins, but when the breaks always go one team's way, its time to start moderating their greatness with a little bit of fortune.
Both Brady and the Patriots are good, in fact they are very good, but they're not great. And definitely not all time great.
Thank you New York Giants.
