No small amount of Charger fans here in town will be rooting for the Pats as they still haven't forgiven Brother Eli Manning for snubbing the Chargers on draft day back in 2004 when
Get over it, people. We got over it the day all this went down as people forget that many, ourselves included, thought Rivers to be the better quarterback at the time. And we still do. Yes, Brother Eli will now be appearing in his second Super Bowl to zero for Rivers and though you can lay blame for that at many people's feat, Rivers is not one of them. And an inexplicably bad start this past season, aside, we believe Rivers to be a better quarterback than Eli.
Now, having said all that, take the Giants getting the 3 points against the Patriots. We like the overall health of the G-Men compared to that of the Patriots and the fact that the Giants' passing attack should be able to shred that weak New England secondary.
X-factor: New England establishing a running game against the pin-their-ears-back-and-get-upfield pass rushing of the Giants' four down linemen.
OK, gang. That's it for today. Hope everyone is able to enjoy the big game with family and friends.
