Brandon Jacobs apologizes to Gisele Bundchen for “stay cute and shut up” comment – The Early Lead – The Washington Post
The New York Giants edged the New England Patriots in a riveting Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday night, yet somehow the most talked about residual from the instant classic involves the supermodel wife of the losing quarterback.Commentary:
Gisele Bundchen’s postgame criticism of the Patriots’ receivers for ruining “the best game” of husband Tom Brady’s life, drew national headlines — and plenty of scorn.
On Tuesday, outspoken Giants running back Brandon Jacobs told reporters that Budchen should “stay cute and shut up.”
“Given the fact that it’s a colleague of mine’s wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn’t have said that,” Jacobs said in an interview on The Doug Gottlieb Show on Wednesday night. “It’s his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else.”
Apologies for the Washington Post link, but wanted to provide the picture of the lovely Ms. Bundchen…
INDIANAPOLIS -- Tom Coughlin has no plans to ride off into the sunset and retire a Super Bowl champion.
The 65-year-old coach said he definitely wants to return to coach the Giants next season and perhaps beyond.
INDIANAPOLIS — On a night that featured a variety of surprising moments — including a safety, several critical dropped passes and Tom Coughlin, the 65-year-old Giants coach, embracing the rapper Flavor Flav in celebration — the most bizarre moment surely was Super Bowl XLVI’s final touchdown.
Eli Manning proves he is elite with New York Giants win in Super Bowl XLVI victory – NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN
For most of us, Sunday’s Super Bowl is the most significant we’ve ever witnessed. We either weren’t around or weren’t old enough to see Joe Willie Namath back up his guarantee, legitimize the AFL and turn the NFL’s season finale into a national holiday.
Super Bowl III played out eight days before President Richard Nixon took office, six months before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, when gas sold for 35 cents a gallon and Madonna was like a 10-year-old virgin.
Yeah, Jan. 12, 1969 — the day Namath exited the Orange Bowl wagging his index finger after leading the Jets to an upset of the Colts — was a long time ago.
And it just might be another four decades before we see an NFL game as significant as the Giants’ 21-17 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
Bill Belichick said New England Patriots should make New York Giants throw to Mario Manningham – ESPN New York
Before the Giants' game-winning drive in Super Bowl XLVI, the New England Patriots coach told his team not to get beat by receivers Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks.Commentary:
"This is still a Cruz-and-Nicks game," Belichick was heard saying in audio recorded for NFL Films. "I know we're right on them. It's tight, but those are still the guys. Make them go to Manningham, make them go to (Bear) Pascoe. Let's make sure we get Cruz and Nicks."
The Giants started the drive at their own 12-yard line with 3:46 left in the game and trailing 17-15. On the first play, Giants quarterback Eli Manning dropped a perfect pass down the sidelines to Manningham, who somehow made the catch and got two feet down for a 38-yard gain.
The Patriots challenged whether Manningham was in bounds. They lost, the Giants were in business and went on to score the go-ahead touchdown. The Patriots actually allowed Ahmad Bradshaw to waltz into the end zone with about a minute left so they would get the ball back.
Be careful what you wish for…
Many fans, a number of whom had arrived at the ceremony after seeing the parade to honor the team, watched the presentation on large monitors that had been set up on the streets surrounding City Hall.
Former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan began the presentation, his “Go New York City!” cheer echoing through the streets.
Players filed across the stage to receive keys to from Bloomberg, with Eli Manning, wide receiver Victor Cruz and cornerback Corey Webster receiving heavy applause from the crowd.
The Giants won the Super Bowl and you are very excited. Once you've finish looting the city, flipping taxis over, and setting police officers on fire you'll probably want to head down to the Super Bowl Victory Parade, which will be taking place tomorrow starting at 11:00 AM at Battery Place and Washington Street, and continuing up the Canyon of Heroes (Broadway) to Worth Street. The only problem is that, apparently, there are going to be over a million people at the parade and, that seems like a lot of people. Dare we say, too many people? The only logical thing to do, clearly, is to make friends with someone who lives on the parade route in a building with a roof deck. And we've got just the map.
Lower Manhattan will be solid Blue on Tuesday when the city is throwing a Giant ticker-tape parade through Broadway’s Canyon of Heroes.
Mayor Bloomberg announced plans for the confetti-filled celebration Sunday night as the Giants clinched Super Bowl XLVI over the Patriots in Indianapolis.
INDIANAPOLIS — How do you get off to a 9-0 lead, run 19 plays before the other guys even run two and still have to fight for your life?
How do you let the quarterback who is the hammer of New England hit you in the solar plexus for two drives covering 175 yards in 22 plays that seem to take light years off your image and hours off the game clock and still win it all. Win every ounce of glitz and glory, popcorn and toy balloons that mark the granddaddy of football games — the one that grabs the television viewing world by its emotional jugular vein and serves as the measuring stick for all things professional football?
If you’re the Giants, you don’t beat them with mystique. You don’t beat them with gimmicks or razzmatazz. You beat them with a simple, basic, eye-to-eye and belly-to-belly hole card … the one that has won virtually all championships from the leather helmet days to Sunday night’s incredible Super Bowl.
