While looking at QB playoff performance Football Outsiders notes that both Tom Brady and Eli Manning are among the top 3 in DYAR. To gain some perspective they compared them to the top DYAR QBs since 1995. Who is at the top of the list? You might recognize him.
(Hopefully this puts to rest the notion that Eli's older brother had a habit of choking in the playoffs. Peyton Manning...
Eli Manning took home the MVP. Plaxico Burress had the game-winning catch. David Tyree got the biggest prize in the 2008 Super Bowl - an unforgettable moment that forever will be his.
No play in the New York Giants' 17-14 victory over the New England Patriots has been shown more than Tyree's fourth-quarter catch of a ball against his helmet with defender Rodney Harrison...
