Complimentary to the city, while walking into a game years ago a small group talked with us and just enjoyed themselves. They are more interested in their team playing good football than the other team losing.
I have never heard a Giants fan say "the Hawks have never won a Super Bowl" even after laying a beat Down on them like in 2006.
I truly enjoy the "football life" stories with the Giants and the entire Coughlin era. I want them to win whenever it doesn't hurt Seattle and I was totally on board with them each year they have won the Super Bowl. Just great stories to go with their wins. The fumble in the 90 NFCC, the 2007 and 2011 runs they made were laden with emotion and heart. Week 17 in 2007, when they took the Pats to the end in a game they didn't even have to play. Even the stories of Judy Coughlin. Just awesome stuff that hits home. Before the winning drive in the 07 Super Bowl, I told my old man, "Eli Manning can define his entire career here if he does it" and he did it, Tyree made that catch and you just knew that they would win
If I wasn't a Seahawks fan, I would be a Giants fan. They have spread their success out over 4 decades! 1 Super Bowl in every era. Amazing. .
That said, I feel like the Hawks will get the best game they can from the Giants. I expect them to play with heart and play loose. I think that they may even have a small lead after 1 half but that the Hawks will stay true to their game and end up taking advantage of a mistake that starts the come back that ends with a Seahawks victory.
27-17 Hawks. I think that Eli will have a lot of yards but that he makes a pressure induced mistake, probably 2.
I have nothing bad to say about Hawk fans, either. The random couple I know in real life aren't bad, and you lot here seem good. Most of you have at least a reasonable football IQ, lol.
I must say, though, Niner fans are the biggest scumbags I've come across on the internet. And I'm not even saying that to ingratiate myself to you guys. Back before the '11 NFCCG, some SF fans came to our boards and they were just straight degenerates. More than one made 9/11 jokes. Yeah. They went there. And the %&*@ers wouldn't even accept Giants fans as members on their boards to actually talk about football, lol.
