I was happy to see a former Oregon Duck, NE safety Patrick Chung, put a good smackdown on a Giant receiver some time in the second half. One of those bone jarring hits that made me say, "BOOM! Shocked That had to hurt!"

Kinda had a feeling it wasn't the Patriots' day when Brady gave the Giants a safety by intentionally grounding the ball in the endzone on their first offensive play.
Three different receivers dropping relatively easy passes out of four New England plays late in the fourth (including the first two plays of the final drive)...
Not to mention a terrible waste of a challenge.

Nah, that was a good challenge because of how much time was left on the clock, which wasn't much. It could have been a different game ruled in the Patriots favor.

But Manningham clearly had posession before going out of bounds and  there was no chance of it being called against the Giants. Bellichick was standing right there. He should have known that.

I think he was just concurring with you. It seemed pretty obvious to me on the broadcast though, and New England's coordinators would have been watching the play from multiple angles. I'd have just taken a time-out rather than waste a challenge.

For wasting the challenge, he was charged a timeout. Therefore, if he's going to burn a timeout at that moment, he might as well do so by challenging the call. At least if the call does get overturned, he gets to keep the timeout for later.

I read today that Tom Brady's wife is complaining about the receivers.  She said that Tom "cannot throw the ball and catch it at the same time" -- http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/seahawks/2017442929_gisele07.html  Perhaps she should try out for wide receiver next year?

Not to mention a terrible waste of a challenge.

It was interesting to note that Raymond Berry, the great Hall of Fame Colts receiver who played in the greatest game ever played in 1958 between the Giants and the Baltimore Colts walked the Lombardi Trophy to the podium.

A tidbit about Berry from wikipedia for the younger crowd:

"During his career, he led the NFL in receptions three times. In his career he only dropped a total of two passes. He was selected to the Pro Bowl six times, from 1957–61 and in 1965. He also made the all-NFL team from 1958-1960. Berry was considered the very identity of the great Baltimore Colts' teams of the 1950s and 1960s (along with Johnny Unitas, Alan Ameche, Lenny Moore, John Mackey, Gino Marchetti, Art Donovan and Jim Parker). He was famous for his attention to detail and preparation. He and quarterback John Unitas regularly worked after practice and developed the timing and knowledge of each other's abilities that made each more effective. In addition to his great record as a pass receiver, Berry's dedication to his craft is demonstrated by, in a 13-year career, his fumbling the football only once." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Berry

As the Bible tells us, there were giants upon the earth in those days!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I bleed Giant Blue, but maybe in that context, you all should cut Giselle Bundgen some slack for defending her hubby!

(We brought a memorable Super Bowl party from upstate NY to Christ the Saviour Seminary in Johnstown, PA where my son is a student.When he left in September I jokingly told him his mom and I would meet him there for the Super Bowl! Five of the students are from the metro NY area. It was wonderful fun for the 'Western Pennsylvania Chapter of Expatriate Tri-State Giants Fans' to meet in the Seminary rec room. Take that Steel Curtain! And thank you to the Rector and Dean for their assistance in making it happen!)

OUCH!!!

Chauncey Billups tore his achilles' tendon in the Clippers last win, he is out for the season Sad

Unfortunately for Chauncey, it also may mean he is forced into retirement..

and the Clippers are going to really have to up their game, he has been the key to their success just as he was with the Knicks last season.  When he left, look at the knicks now? And every game he sat out for LA this year they lost..

Because he escaped.

Because the side judge of the Super Bowl officiating crew watched Eli Manning's drone of a 38-yard pass land right into the straining hands of Mario Manningham, less than a step from the sideline, less than a yard from New England coach Bill Belichick, and dangerously close to Laird Hayes' cone of anonymity.

Laird Hayes ruled that Manningham got both feet down and controlled the ball before he stepped out.

Chauncey has gotten the short stick in the NBA way too often. He deserves a better fate, but he seems like a good guy. I enjoyed him last year on my Knicks and I wish him a speedy recovery. Lord, have mercy.


 and yeah, the catch was clearly good....

Because he escaped.

Because the side judge of the Super Bowl officiating crew watched Eli Manning's drone of a 38-yard pass land right into the straining hands of Mario Manningham, less than a step from the sideline, less than a yard from New England coach Bill Belichick, and dangerously close to Laird Hayes' cone of anonymity.

Laird Hayes ruled that Manningham got both feet down and controlled the ball before he stepped out.

You don’t see Kobe [Bryant] tweeting,” Perkins said. “You don’t see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you’re an elite player, plays like that don’t excite you. At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons, who are trying to win championships, are not worrying about one play.

“They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2. I just feel [James] is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.”
Kendrick Perkins quoted in LA Times

I thought something similarly critical of Mr. Perkins when I read that earlier today. "You got your a** dunked on. It happens to the best of players. So man up and stop crying about it."

Is Lin the new Tebow?

Quote
Some have predicted that Lin, because of his faith, will become the Taiwanese Tebow, a reference to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, whose outspokenness about his evangelical Christian beliefs has made him extraordinarily popular in some circles and venomously disliked in others. But my gut tells me that Lin will not wind up like Tebow, mainly because Lin’s persona is so strikingly different. From talking to people who knew him through the Harvard-Radcliffe Asian American Christian Fellowship, and watching his interviews, I have the sense that his is a quieter, potentially less polarizing but no less devout style of faith.

Lin comes across as soft-spoken and winsome; he comes across as thoughtful. He comes across, actually, as a distinctly Asian-American Christian, or at least like so many that I know.

An Asian-American Christian? What’s that?

But will he turn out to be overhyped, or will his great playing linger?

ATLANTA -- When Erik Spoelstra was chosen by the Miami Heat to succeed Pat Riley in 2008, he made history as the first Asian-American coach in the four major North American sports leagues.

Although he has seen only highlights of Jeremy Lin since the New York Knicks point guard took the league by storm over the past week, Spoelstra expressed a measure of pride on Sunday over what Lin has accomplished as the first Asian-American to start an NBA game since the league began keeping records of starting lineups decades ago.

"Also being an Asian-American, it's great to see him break some barriers," said Spoelstra, who has described himself as half Filipino. "As a fan of the game, I root for him. It's a great sports story, in general."
....
Spoelstra was a standout high school point guard growing up in the Portland area. He went on to the University of Portland, where he was a four-year starter. As a youth, Spoelstra had aspirations of suiting up as the first Asian-American player in the NBA for generations, but soon realized he was a long shot to play at the highest professional levels.

"I (had hopes) until I was a junior in high school," said Spoelstra. "Then I realized I better concentrate on getting my college paid for and moving on to a different profession."

Kinda like Tim Tebow? Good at winning, though quite often by overcoming his many glaring mistakes. Brett Favre was kinda that way, too.
