      @luisito NeymarEsNo1 The one thing I will say for Montana and the 80's Niners is that they faced much stiffer intra league competition from an NFC,they featured some other great teams, giants, Redskins, Bears, eagles and even the rams to an extent all had great teams.

      Brady and the Pats have had a much easier time getting to their super bowls and as a consequence at they have been in nine of them. In addition those Niners never lost a super bowl and won most of them quite easily, with 1989 being the sole exception.

      I'm a Giants fan who remembers Phil Simms rookie year in 1079, I was 6 at the time. My three least favorite teams are the Cowgiirls, the Eagles and Niners so I have no reason to be have a bias in favor of San Francisco but I have to give that team the respect it's due, the Giants won two rings in that er and I know how hard it is to win four and almost three peat.

      You gave Reese way too much credit. he inherited a talented team that he proceeded to dismantle. Not one of his draft picks after the 2nd/3rd round ever amounted to anything other than a bench spot and lost money.

        7 months later: Eli's reign comes to its final end as rookie QB Daniel Jones takes over. Despite the 2 victories the Patriots outlasted the Giants in the end.

          Let’s make this easy.
          Reese started to believe he was a genius and ruined the team with a succession of horrible drafts.
          Next question...

                    Take away Odell, and Saqon.. The Giants have been an absolute joke drafting talent the last 10 years.. The draft is the life blood of any franchise in any sport..

                      I’m growing up in NJ and I remember that in elementary school Victor Cruz was a god for most kids. Everyone wanted his football card. I was more of a Philly guy, so I flipped the Cruz cards for Desean Jackson cards. Even though I don’t like the Giants, I massively respect Victor Cruz.

                                Idk maybe the general management didn’t get Eli and O line , and maybe just maybe if Odell caught some passes in the playoffs we could of made some noise but yea that’s pretty much it. Wish they would of kept Odell to go along with Daniel Jones and Saquon

                                    Trivia question: Besides Eli Manning, who is the only other player who is on the Giants today (2019) that was on the team in 2011?

                                      The giants actually still have a player from both SB wins on their roster. Zak Deossie. Their long snapper. Just saying.

                                        Yeah there are at least 15-20 teams would take one super bowl and be a mess for 10 years but couldn’t. Y’all think winning a super bowl easy.Without ELI That two super bowl wouldn’t happen!!

                                          The 2 SB winning Giants had the same winning formula. Good pass rush to keep Brady off balance and a running game to get the 3rd downs and move the chain. They couldn't have won the 2 SB with just Eli's throws only, they had 2 miracle catches one in each game but those didn't do the damage. Each one of those games were well within reach for Brady. They were not total domination, they were both within a field goal or TD and it came down to clock management and holding the ball. Then after the last SB win, the NFL changed. It became a throwing league where every team beefed up their pass rush to get to the QB or have a shutdown backfield. Eli just wasn't dynamic or accurate enough to become successful and the last 7-8 years proved to be the case that he couldn't win without a brickwall O-line or stud receivers. While you look at Brady, he didn't have that many stud wideouts or star RB. He had Gronk but often hurt, he relied on reading defenses and making accurate and timely throws. Which is why Brady has 3 wins since the last loss to the Giants and Eli had no appearance in SB since.

                                            8:38 - And then four years later, the Giants trade OBJ to the Browns for a first & third round pick and a box safety. As a result, they had to take $16 million in dead cap AND as an added bonus, they drafted Daniel Jones.

                                            "OBJ didn't start his antics overnight. You knew damn well what he was when you put pen to paper. So now you not only did you sell him in embarrassing fashion, you also get a wonderful parting gift: $16 million in dead cap." - UrinatingTree

                                                As a lifelong Giants fan I appreciate the video, it actually has caused me to speculate if the 2016 giants wouldn't have been better served by keeping Tom Coughlen one more year, the Bieber nonsense wouldn't have happens and the giants offedive output may have been better which consequently would have enabled them to win even more regular season games and setting them up setter going into the postseason.

As big as a giants fan as I am I’m not afraid to admit that we were not super bowl contenders that year. I’m not glossing anything over, but anyone who says the boat trip is what “doomed” us is just a bit silly. Plus you can’t just blame it on the receivers, there were mistakes on both sides of the ball as there always are😂
