This Patriot team is team of all time, a dynasty. Brady will retire with a least 5 or 6 super bowls under his belt. However, this Super Bowl was a fluke. The Giants had all the momentum in their favor and because the patriots had so much against them like everyone thinking they were going to win.

This superbowl was not a fluke. Lets look at the definition of a "fluke."

1. an accidental advantage; stroke of good luck: He got the job by a fluke.
2. an accident or chance happening.
3. an accidentally successful stroke, as in billiards.

now this is not waht happened at the superbowl because to get to the superbowl, you have to be ONE OF THE TWO BEST TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY. Thus having said this, i simply have proved you wrong.

IT was not a fluke, for the giants didnt get lucky. They were good. Reeaalll good.

What I meann by fluke is that the Giants are a mediocre team who had everything go for them. Next year they probably won't even make the playoffs, while the Pats will achieve perfection and go 19-0.

If I had one question to ask brady it would be this, "Tom, whats it feel like to get your arse handed to you two years in a row by a Manning?"

First of all, I very much doubt that the Patriots will be near as good next year. For one, the reason they got so much better, is because they've been loading up on free agents over the off season, some of which won't be there next season.

Tom Brady won't preform as well. This can be proved by looking at LaDainian Tomlinson. LT had an amazing season last year, averaging 2 touchdowns per game. He and Marty Schotenheimer lead the Chargers to a near-perfect season last year, much like Tom Brady and Bill Belichek did this year. As you probably know, LT didn't preform as well this year, especially at the beginning of the season. He said it took him over half of a year to get over the overwhelming disappointment he felt when the Patriots knocked them out of the playoffs. Just imagine how much worse that must be for Tom Brady.

The Giants winning just meant they were the better team in that game. Honestly, the records and achievements of a team have nothing to do with their results in the Super Bowl.

The game of footbal is decided at the line of scrimmage on every play. Nearly every play was dominated by the Giants lines on boths sides of the ball. Had they not been going up against the highest scoring and most effective offense in teh history of the NFL it probably would have been a blowout in favor of the Giants. I lost a wager on this Super Bowl and was quite displeased, but I'm not going to make excuses as to why I made the right choice picking the Pats. I made the wrong choice because my decision was based on the entire season and not the previous four games. The Pats didn't blow it, they lost and played well. There is only one true way to defend this Super Bowl nto being a fluke and it's a favorite quote of the best sports radio host in the country, Jim Rome: "Scoreboard, look at it."

This Superbowl was lost because the Pats blew it. They played terribly and blew the game with 35 seconds left. They had Eli Manning and let him go. Tom Brady had no coverage and played very unlike himself but he still managed to get us ahead and have a 14-10 lead and the defense just kept letting Eli literally slip out of their hands. Also the Pats din't have any trust in their kicker and that cost them the game. 4th and 13, in field goal position and you don't try and kick. Then you have one more chance and Brady who was passing terribly throws a seventy something yard pass to Moss instead of just trying to get into field goal position to try and tie the game. That is why the Patriots lost the game.

I agree, that if they were to beat the packers they were to win, but alas I am a patriots fan, and alas they did not win. =[

Amen biggiiboy. If the Giants can beat the Packers, then they deserve to win:-D

Yes, I am a die-hard Packers fan, but I really wanted to see the Giants win. They earned it.
