There was brilliance on both sides of the ball on Super Sunday. My MVP vote would have gone to… sorry, Giant fans… the Patriots’ Wes Welker. For a while it seemed as if he were the only weapon they had going for them. The Giants took a deep breath and won with their pass rush, a feat that at one time seemed impossible against such an impregnable fortress. There was suffering at the end of this game, too…. endurance, ability to keep going.
Unbelievable plays made by unlikely people. David Tyree, a fourth receiver, a special teamer, making one of the great catches in the history of the Super Bowl. I heard some people say, "Well it was dull for three quarters." Not for me it wasn’t. Dull and low-scoring are not synonymous. Some of us find defense interesting, too. I like games in which nothing comes cheaply, in which everything is dearly won. I don’t like those 41-38 airshows in which the ball just gets an airmail stamp.
And besides, I find that when contests with a lot riding on them start off dull, they invariably become thrilling at the end. The Steelers’ Immaculate Reception game, for instance, was deadly dull for more than three quarters. Then all hell broke loose. Practically the entire fourth quarter of Giants-Patriots was played under excruciating pressure, right up to the time when Jay Alford broke through and nailed Brady for a 10-yard loss with 19 seconds left.
For me the game had everything, courage, incredible effort, sustained level of pressure by the Giant defense. Football doesn’t get much better.
