Super Bowl XLII: 18 and 1 Giant Upset

Mike DoyonCorrespondent IFebruary 4, 2008

There were very few people who believed the New York Giants could win the Super Bowl. After all, they started the season 0-2.

They weren't supposed to beat Tampa Bay at Raymond James Stadium on wild-card weekend. They weren't supposed to beat Dallas one week later at Texas Stadium.

Well done Giants, but now it's time for you to go away.

Oh wait, they then beat Green Bay at Lambeau Field in a blizzard to go to the Super Bowl.

I'm still in shock over what happened last night. Not only did they win 3 tough playoff games on the road, they end up beating the unbeatable New England Patriots.

This what not supposed to happen.

I don't know about you, but I would have preferred to have seen a truly historical 19-0 season rather than see another friggin' Manning win a Super Bowl.

I'm going to steer clear of going over the details and what I think about how poorly the Pats' offensive line played, but what's the point.

Plaxico still made the catch and shed a tear, Eli's still the MVP, and New England's magical season has come to an abrupt end.

Just like this post.
