A tragic end to a fabled season. The New England Patriots were dumped by the NY Giants on Super Bowl Sunday 17-14. The only loss for the Patriots in the 2007-2008 season came at the hands of the hottest team in the NFL. The Giants won 11 games on the road enroute to their well deserved World Championship.
It was a tremendous defensive battle. The Patriots were in the lead with just 2 minutes left. Eli Manning was up to the challenge and led his team on a huge late drive to conquer the undefeated Patriots. What a shock to Patriot Nation. This was not the way any of us wanted to see this season end. But - it is OVAH! Congratulations to Tom Caughlin, a classy football guy! Congratulations to the Giants - a tremendous football team.
Now it's wait until next year and bring on Spring Training!
There'll be no Hub parade on Super Tuesday. No commemorative books about "Path to Perfection." In New England, the church bells all are broken. An 18-0 season dissolved when New York Giants' Eli Manning made a touchdown pass with 35 seconds left. (By Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe)
