They also got every single lucky break known to man to get them another superbowl win. God is a Giants fan I swear.
They have an elite QB, good offense, and great pass rush. Sounds like a legit team to me.
Yes, overrated. They do NOT have an elite QB. He is average, and has been carried by the rest of the team. The 49ers beat them (and themselves, unfortunately). The giants were shut down in the 2nd half, until the game was given to them on a platter. They had every break go their way in the 2nd half of the season as well. Remember, they were 9-8, one stinking win from being a .500 team. And if you remember, last year people were complaining the seahawks made the playoffs with a losing record.
I give Giants defense as much credit as any part of the game on either sides. People forget that they stopped GOAT() Aaron Rodgers a week prior dead in his tracks. People like to blame our offense of Kyle Williams for losing the SB, but I give just as much if not more credit to the Giants defense. They litterally took away our WR's and made us a one dimensional offense.
You say the Giants were shut down in the second half but so were we. We were stopped dead in our tracks. They just had the better team, unfortunately and got healthy at the right time in the season.
The Giants defense did not stop Aaron Rodgers dead in his tracks, the Packers receivers did.
