    If I were a Giants fan, I'd be pretty pi**ed off right now! :yes:

    Not only could they have had Rivers but also their first and third round draft picks in 2005!!! Who knows what that would have lead to.

    The last 2 minutes of the game were great on two levels. Obviously Rivers rubbing it in Eli's face but also Merriman sacking Eli on the final play. The only thing missing was working Kaeding into some game-defining moment and the irony meter would have broken!

    Regardless of how little sense it makes to blindly point to it, until the Chargers win a Super Bowl with Rivers behind center everyone will just point to Eli's ring in these conversations.

    It doesn't matter that it takes a team to win the thing because they won't care.

    People would rather stick their fingers in their ears while yelling "LA LA LA LA LA LA" to any response because "bottom line" Eli has a ring, Rivers doesn't.

    I do like how someone in one of those threads mentions how Rivers has more offensive talent than Eli, but Eli's the one with the ring...conveniently neglecting to mention that half of that talent (including Rivers himself) was injured in the playoffs.

    All of this is true but the 07 AFCC should NOT be Rivers only chance. I really hope Rivers will not be wasted talent.

    I fully agree, but at the same time that's a different conversation that centers around the Chargers team and not specifically Rivers compared to Eli.

    Kaeding did kick the go ahead XP.

    So all 3 of them got involved. Rivers with the tying TD, Kaeding with the go ahead XP and Merriman with the game finishing sack.

    My bad, duh. They were all involved in the last 2 minutes. Suck on it Giants.

    Are you kidding me?

    Kaeding kicked the PAT for the final point... in a ONE point game! :lol:

    That's right. Don't slight Kaeding's involvement. :icon_evil:

    I laugh at those saying that Eli has the "ring" which makes him better than Rivers, as if he somehow magically limited the highest-powered offense that ever existed to just 14 points by himself.

    Eli's miracle pass to David Tyree is incomplete 99 times out of 100.

    The Giants defense deserved the Super Bowl MVP award, not Eli.

    Right now, Eli is among the rank of Trent Dilfer. QBs who won rings riding their defensive stars.

    Now, had Eli passed for 300 yards, 3 TD, and 0 INT, then it would be different.

    Has anyone brought this to the attention of the Gnat's board(s)?

    Rivers, Merriman & Kaeding for Sheli in a one pointer and all 3 were their demise at the end?:icon_eek:
