The Giants think they can stop Tom Brady, or at least slow him down enough to win this Super Bowl in 11 days. It’s not as if he’s Rex Grossman, the seemingly mighty Washington quarterback who slayed the Giants twice this season.

The AFC Championship game wasn’t a typical win for the 2011 Patriots. Their bend but don’t break defense nearly broke (in fact, if Billy Cundiff takes a time out/depending on who you ask about the Lee Evans non-touchdown it broke indeed), quarterback Tom Brady took too many chances with the ball and missed open receivers, [...]

(Hopefully this puts to rest the notion that Eli's older brother had a habit of choking in the playoffs. Peyton Manning...
Patriots owner Robert Kraft "shuddered" when he saw Tom Brady take a crunching hit on a 1-yard touchdown plunge. He even wondered if Brady's back was broken.
The San Francisco 49ers had been living off turnovers and stellar special teams play all throughout their tremendous 2011 season. Tom Brady had been bailing out a condemned New England Patriots defense time and time again over that same time frame.
A decade of excellence and the playoff mystique of quarterback Tom Brady and Coach Bill Belichick have helped elevate New England to Super Bowl favorite.
