Overview

NFL Super Bowl XLII offers highlights from the game that saw Eli Manning lead the New York Giants to an unexpected win over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, 17-14. The Pats came into the game on an 18-game win streak, and were favored to complete the first "perfect" season in 35 years. Head coach Bill Belichick's team had already beaten the Giants in the regular season's final game, and established several offensive records on its way to a 16-0 record. The Giants, on the other hand, entered the playoffs with a wild-card berth, after finishing the season at 10-6. The Giants, under head coach Tom Coughlin, proved in the later weeks of the season to be a more formidable squad than their early record suggested, and this ultimate contest between the two truly earned its "Super" appellation. This official NFL commemorative disc captures not only the contest itself, but the fascinating back story to the showdown -- surely, one for the ages.

    Correction: The Giants beat the Redskins in Week 3

    I'm surprised that the description here shows that the Giants lost to the Redskins in Week 3, when in reality, they came from behind and won that game to avoid starting 0-3. Craig O - as a Giants fan, I'm surprised you not only missed this, but also repeated the mistake in your review by saying they started 0-3. The Giants did, in fact, finish the regular season with a 10-6 record as stated by Lenny D, but if you went by the description, you would think they finished 9-7. That mistake aside, the story of the 2007 Giants winning the Super Bowl has to be one of the best sports stories ever told, considering the odds they had to overcome. Other than the Buccaneers, the Giants were tasked with playing and defeating nearly every single team in the playoffs that had already beaten them in the regular season. If one didn't know better, you might think they "hustled" these teams in the regular season by tricking them into believing they were better. Simply an amazing story.

    Return of the Big Blue Wrecking Crew

    The recap by Lenny D effectively summarizes the unexpected, uncanny 2007 season of the New York Football Giants. The Super Bowl crown was such an incredible surpise to the fans from North Jersey primarily because of 3 factors: the Patriots historic in-season achievements and pursuit of perfection, an -0-3 start, and the disastrous ending to the 2006 season. 2006 was about as awful a season the Giants ever had. With a team full of talent, fans and critics alike were anticipating a successful '06 campaign. But early season distractions created by Tiki's retirement plans, the team's bewildering propensity for undisciplined play, the 4th quarter collapse against the Titans, Coughlin's leadership incompetence, getting into the playoffs through the futility of other teams, and an embarrassing loss in the first round to the Eagles led by a QB who would've been lucky to be starring in the Arena League left Giants fans frustrated, angry, and beside themselves. With the perplexing move to bring back Coughlin, and Strahan's whereabouts unknown in training camp, '07 seemed all but certain to be a waste. But this is the league of "Any Given Sunday" and "A Game of Inches". In a city of fast-pace and unpredictablity, the Giants shocked the football world "New York Minute" by "New York Minute."

    A reviewer

    Giants fans know the 'All Joe' Giants led the league in dropped passes during the regular season. Compounding that, the franchise quarterback, Eli Manning, turned the ball over too much and he just wasn't the QB that his brother Peyton is. Nevertheless, with a 10-6 regular season record, the Giants were second best in the NFC east, and good enough to qualify for a wild card playoff berth. The first round playoff win against the favored Bucaneers in Tampa was a workmanlike effort by the Giants. Most of the experts said the Giants had enjoyed their last victory as they now had to go to Dallas and face the NFC East Champs in the third meeting of the year. In case you weren't paying attention, the Giants lost their first two meetings against their division rivals from Dallas and were even bigger underdogs going into this round of the playoffs. After the Giants surprising win in Dallas, football 'experts' said something had to have been wrong with the Cowboy quarterback. It couldn't have been the relentless pressure from the Giants defensive line or the surprising 'bend but don't break' play of the secondary. It had to have been Dallas QB Tony Romo playing 'Romeo in Mexico' the week before with his Bimbo de Jour. Giant fans were told to forget about their team's chances against the cagey playoff veteran and former Super Bowl champion QB in the Frozen Tundra of Green Bay. In a re-birth of his glory days, Brett Favre was throwing the ball better than he had in many years. Beyond that the Packer running game had emerged late in the season and ripped off over 200 yards against Seattle the week before. Even worse for the Giants, the Pack's running game was being led by a Giants cast off that had some payback to serve up. We all knew the odds that day in Green Bay when the wind chill was 30 below and the Giants were coming to town with the Manning that had been labeled a warm weather QB. And then something happened. The stats starting showing a strange trend in Green Bay. The Giants receivers had stopped dropping the ball and Eli stopped throwing interceptions - not just in Green Bay but over the past few games against VERY GOOD teams. The Playoff Giants had a late season emergence of their own - a reliable passing game to go with their newest version of a 'Thunder and Lightning' running game. With a reliably punishing pass rush and a stingy pass defense that the vaunted Giants Defensive Coordinator masterfully pieced together, the Giants still didn't impress the experts. After overcoming the odds in Green Bay to become the NFC's representaive in Super Bowl XLII, did anyone outside of Giants fans begin to notice that this team was for real? The analysts and announcers that Fox Sports subjected Giants fans to all season continued to assure everyone that the Giants were still a second tier team that had used up all their luck in Dallas and Green Bay. We could all forget about denying the Patriots their unprecedented, undefeated 19-game season. It's not only Giants fans that need a video record of this 'against all odds' Championship season. Coaches, parents, and athletes - arm chair or otherwise, need it too. The winners of Super Bowl XLII showed their focused on improving their game and shutting out those that didn't believe in them - against some incredible odds. That's what makes some sports stories better than others.
