    New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys
    Should the New York Giants have beaten the Dallas Cowboys in that playoff game or did they just get lucky.

    I don't think they just "got lucky." Could be many factors involved such as over confidence on the part of Dallas, more determination to win on the part of the Giants.

    Are you kidding, the Giants played with heart, and purpose, the Cowboys didn't and it showed. The played like they wanted it more, even against the Pats. That's why the are the CHAMPS.

    Considering the fact that they went on to beat the Packers, then finally the Patriots I doubt that they just got "lucky."

    They did go on one heckuva roll after the PATS, barely beat them in the season finale.

    Dallas has not won a playoff game in 11 years(?)
    Don't hold your breath for them to win one anytime soon.
    After beating Dallas, the Giants walked into Green Bay and exposed Favre's INT. problem in big moments. Then in the greatest last 2 minutes in SB history, shere heart and determination pulled it off.

    The giants played with confidence, plus the cowboys were to cocky. Remember TO "Thats my Quarterback, its not fair" :(

    I know I am a little late answering this question but, Look at the G men now. Sitting at 7 and 1 this season. I honestly think they will repeat. Romo gets hurt and Dallas falls apart. Strahan retires, Osi has a season ending injury, yet the D remains awesome. It is like a lizard, you can rip a chunk out of the D and it just regenerates. No, I do not think the Giants got lucky. I think the Cowboys were unlucky because they had to play the team that almost ended a perfect season for the Pats and the G men believed they belonged. I do not think it would have mattered who they played in this game ( the 72 Dolphins, The 85 Bears, The 86 Giants, The Cowboys of the 90's) I think they would have found a way to beat anybody

    I'm sorry I forgot 1 thing. As for coach saying the better team did not win. I think if the Cowboys would have won this game, there would be two teams in NFL history with perfect seasons.

    I agree with you big time 1099669. The Cowboys would have got killed against the pats in the SuperBowl. Now the Giants stand at 10-1. How amazing. I have a prediction for This years Superbowl!

    I was kind of hoping Titans would go undefeated this year so we could repeat last years upset. Then again, the way the Jets are playing now, we may have a Giant Jet superbowl. Either way, I am sure the Giants are the strongest team in the NFC. Who they play in the superbowl really doesn't matter, I am sure they will steam roll them.

    I was kind of hoping the Titans would go undefeated so we could do it all over again this year. Or maybe a Giant Jet superbowl.

    That is true. I hate that Burress is out until next year though. Me and my friend had him in our fantasy football. He helped win quite a few in our fantasy.

    I would be surprised if Tom C lets Burress play again for the Giants

    I was reading an article just skimed through it and I was seeing where Tom and Plaxico were having a conservation and he was very nice about it, but that really didn't matter because he had to do the right thing. So, what exactly happened? Was he in a club and he accidentally shot himself in the leg?

    I am worried about Antonia P also. I wish these guys could behave like intelligent adults and not teenage "gangstas"

    Yes, Burress was in possession of an illegal concealed weapon which apparently slide down the leg of his sweatpants. When he attempted to retrieve the pistol, he accidentally pulled on the trigger. This was his story.

    Wow, that is quite crazy. I can't believe that. It's such a shame. Is he having to serve jail time?
