Eli has come of age and grown up just like big brother Peyton, by winning a Super Bowl trophy!
3 February 2008 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

"Super Bowl XLII" has to certainly rank right up as one of the best games ever played for it's drama, and tough and gritty showing of going down to the end by both teams. The AFC champion New England Patriots had the chance of history in the making to go 19-0 the first ever team to be undefeated if the victory happened over the heavily underdog NFC champion N.Y. Giants. The Giants had been the surprise team of the NFC playoffs a wild card team that won all three road playoff games by riding the arm of Eli and a bruising running game combined with a fearsome pass rush put the Giants over the top. This game would be no different as the Giants started the game aggressive on defense taking away the pass by doubling Randy Moss and blitzing Tom Brady heavy it threw the Pats out of rhythm as the first half was tough and competitive with New England only holding a 7-3 halftime lead, as the Giants D had held them in check. The second half started with both teams going back and fourth only the third quarter was scoreless. Enter the final and blazing fourth quarter for a dramatic finish as Eli put the Giants ahead 10-7 on a TD pass. Yet Giants fans knew the Brady bunch would answer as Tom drove the field as he continued to kill the defense underneath with passes to WR Wes Welker as he finished with 11 catches. As the drive ended he found Moss on a touchdown pass to go ahead 14-10. Really a tribute to Brady who had been hurried and pressured all night from Michael Strahan and the Giants defense which would register 5 sacks on Tom. Now the game was on the shoulders of Eli Manning who showed just as he had all during the playoffs that he had finally arrived and came of age as he was tremendous on the drive finally connecting with Plaxico Burress on a touchdown pass with under a minute left! The upset had been pulled off by big blue one of the biggest in NFL history, Eli was named game MVP with a performance of 19 of 34 with 255 passing yards and two touchdown throws and one interception. Folks another Manning plays in the NFL it's not only Peyton but hail and pass the torch to little brother Eli. Thumbs up too for the great performance from the Giants defense especially the line for the 5 QB sacks on Tom Brady in my opinion the real key piece that helped the Giants to an upset Super Bowl victory.
