Greetings from Indianapolis! We are about an hour and a half away from game time. The stadium is about half full already. The NFL Network crew just asked all the Giants fans in the house to cheer, followed by the Patriots. Judging from cheer volume, the Patriots have the upper hand right now. Unfortunately they do not get any points for that. -- ZACK PIERCE

After practicing the first two days of the New York Giants' work week at Super Bowl XLVI, running back Ahmad Bradshaw was held out of Friday's practice because his injured right foot "was a little sore,'' coach Tom Coughlin said.
"But he's okay,'' Coughlin said after the Giants' 70-minute afternoon practice at the University of Indianapolis...
'It ended on defense and that's the identity of New York Giant football,' Tyree says
Jim MancariBGB Assistant EditorWith the big game right around the corner, it’s important as Giants fans that we relive some of the best moments in our team’s Super Bowl History. The Giants are 3-1 all-time in the Super Bowl and will hope to earn their fourth win Sunday against the New England Patriots. Of course, there can always be a debate about any top-plays list, but here...
Other than a problem with a team bus, the New York Giants' final walkthrough before the Super Bowl went smoothly Saturday.
The second of four buses carrying the team from the hotel to the University of Indianapolis had to be replaced after engine problems. The NFL had a substitute bus on hand and quickly got the players and coaches back en route, with a delay of roughly five...
INDIANAPOLIS — In another scenario, Kevin Boothe could have been one of the scapegoats for the Giants had they not pulled out last night’s 21-17 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
Boothe did not drop a huge pass, blow a big tackle or miss a key field goal...
No one does fourth quarters better than Eli Manning. And no one has the Patriots' number quite like the Giants. Manning led an 88-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes of another thrilling Super Bowl as the Giants beat the Patriots, 21-17, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Tom Coughlin's pinched face, ever present on the New York Giants' sideline during his eight seasons, gives way to a smile more often now. He'll even crack a one-liner or two.
Being an NFL general manager is like being a kicker: What have you done for me lately?
Yes, that’s right. Since there is clearly a lack of opinions on the subject available on the internet, we’re here with our own prognostications for Super Bowl 46!
It’s the Giants versus the Patriots in a rematch of Super Bowl 42 – widely considered one of the greatest championship games of all time – and everyone at R&R HQ has pretty strong feelings...
Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty promised New Yorkers a victory parade after the Super Bowl. The New England Patriots were not worried about the prediction.
Matt Vensel, Sports Blitz : A fun game down to the whistle, this one was eerily reminiscent of the last times these teams met in the Super Bowl. Eli Manning -- who said before the season the he was elite and lived up to it -- was so cool down the stretch and the Giants put enough heat on Tom Brady to seal the win. Can you believe Eli has more titles than Peyton and one fewer than...
