The Super Bowl, of course, but I look back and one play or call was the difference in all 3 games. Two gifts for the Giant in 2011, holding in the end zone 2012, and blown calls by the officials this year. The NFL picks the best officials to call the Championship games. In this Hawks game they didn't even know the rule book.
2011 was the worst for me. We we're on an emotional high winning that NFC divisional game vs the Saints and being 24 at the time it was the first time being exposed to being a really good team. The Jeff Garcia years were nice but we we're on the door step of a super bowl and Kyle Williams took that away from you and me. I was absolutely crushed. I had no idea what to think.
The Super Bowl was a close second because we now had expectations and being so close yet so far really hurt but we we're already down like 20 some points in the game so it was kind of like false hope at the end.
Seattle sucked but they were the better team. Their defense was on fire. Russell Wilson still sucks but they score more points lol. That's the only way to describe it. Losing Bowman hurt more than the actual game.
The reason the Giants game ranked so high was because I knew that had we won that game we would have beaten the piss out of the Patriots. Our defense was unstoppable that year. Creating turnovers left and right.

2011 NYG for me. At home. Bradshaw forward progress. Williams X 2. Awful overtime possessions. Just wanted it badly after that roller coaster ride Vs. New Orleans. When Graham scored that go ahead TD, I don't know if i've ever gone from a lower place to a higher place in 1:37 seconds (similar to bengals in 88. After the playoff drought we went through,we all we're thinking the same thing and we got a top ten moment in franchise history out of it in VD TD.
I live in New England and deal with an ultra jaded fan base in the Patriots. They are rough on their team when they lose and expect to win, which is fair. But what isn't fair is the sense of entitlement to success. Playoff wins are hard to get and not to be taken for granted. In our lean years, 03 - 2010 I vowed to never take for granted future success. To never become anything even resembling New England's fan base in their 13+ years of winning 10+ games.
Thrilled to be behind this team...
God you have no idea how livid I was. EVERY YEAR SINCE THIS GAME dude the refs have been against us. What pissed me off more was hating ass joe buck and troy agreed it was correct call when it was a horses**t call. Yet again bowman makes beast play and we get hosed.
