It’s Super Bowl Sunday

Here we are, after two weeks of anticipation the Giants and the Patriots are only a few hours away from battling it out for the ultimate championship. This game is all we’ve heard about for a while and I’m sure you all know the in’s and out’s of it. The Patriots and Giants are both much different teams than they were 4 years ago, and honestly this game has nothing to do with that day. Pat fans I’m sure are exciting for a chance to beat the Giants in the Super Bowl. Giant fans want to solidify the legacy of great players and coaches who haven’t earned enough respect for winning four years ago.

This game could go all different sorts of ways and those who guarantee it to be a real close game shouldn’t be that confident. Both teams have the ability to separate themselves from one another, and both are built similarly. The Giants and Pats both throw the ball a lot and successfully, but have very inconsistent run games. On defense they have had their moments, but in the end neither teams strength lies there.

In my opinion this game comes down to one thing and one thing only. TURNOVERS. Whoever wins that battle will win the game. If both teams are even in turnover then the game will indeed come down to the final minutes, but there is absolutely no idea to know. Turnover can come in many ways, they can be forced, they can be made, and they can be downright unlucky. The timing of turnovers can be costly as well. If you turn it over on the precipice of a score it can be costly, but even more so if it leads to an easy score for the other team. When and how many turnovers happen in this game will determine the outcome.

If you came here for a prediction, I fear I will not give it to you. As a Giants fan though, I have an uneasy feeling about the way the Giants have been pimped up for the game and how the Patriots have taken an unusual underdog role. About 60% of people out there seem to be picking the Giants, and I hope the confidence the Giants have gained does not go to their head. We’ll see in only a few short hours, and the Giants need to get after it. One final note, I couldn’t be LESS excited for Madonna to perform at halftime, she’s old and I’ve never liked her music anyway. We need to do better than this! Anyway, hope everyone enjoys the game!
