The broad strokes are obvious: the Giants replayed Super Bowl 36, this time with Tom Brady standing in for Curt Warner as the quarterback who takes a vicious beating.... but it begs the question: how does an offensive line that played so well for 18 games, making all kinds of time for Tom Brady to run up those otherworldly passing numbers, get absolutely and (key word) collectively shredded?
One theory: go back to where the most brilliant coach of all time got his start: $25 a week in the film room. You watch football games on film to see tendencies, patterns - and the Patriots provided a lot of offensive film to look at this year, so a lot to work with. Is it possible that the real Super Bowl MVP is an intern who breaks down game film in the Meadowlands? Yes, it will be a long offseason
If the preceding hunch is accurate, many would see it as a fitting end to this particular season. We need Ron Jaworski to go to the videotape!
