Canty, Bradshaw reflect on Giants years

Posted by Dan Salomone on February 7, 2013 – 1:43 pm

Giants Saints FootballDespite parting ways Wednesday, Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Canty, and Giants fans will always have positive years to look back on.

For the running back, it was an opportunity to win two Super Bowls with the team that drafted him. For the defensive tackle, it doesn’t get much better than hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in his hometown.

While Bradshaw will be remembered for his go-ahead touchdown with 57 seconds remaining in Super Bowl XLVI, it was whom he did it with that stands out for the 26-year-old.

“It’s one thing with the Giants, they just have one of the greatest organizations and I can vouch for that,” Bradshaw told WFAN’s Mike Francesa. “So, like I say, I’m definitely going to remember the guys I did it with – not only just the moments I had individually — but it was a blast.”

Meanwhile, wherever Canty takes his career, the Bronx native relished his time with the New York fans.

“I’m just thankful for the opportunity when I came here in 2009 to join this organization and play in my hometown and win a Super Bowl here,” Canty said on ESPN’s “The Michael Kay Show” on Wednesday. “And it’s a great city, great fans, it was a great experience.”

He added: “New York will always be home. New York will always be home for me. This is where it all started for me. It was a great opportunity for me to play here, I won a championship here, so New York will always be [home].”

Better Super Bowl performance: Eli or Flacco?

Posted by Dan Salomone on February 6, 2013 – 1:09 pm

manningflaccoEven before the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII, comparisons were being made with the 2011 Giants as teams of destiny. Naturally, the talk involved their two quarterbacks, and it has only continued since Joe Flacco replaced Eli Manning as defending Super Bowl MVP.

That is why NFL.com has posed the question: Who had the better championship performance – Manning or Flacco? It was broken down into “Pregame Pressure” and “In-Game Performance.”

Here is what NFL.com had to say about the quarterbacks:

Eli Manning, Super Bowl XLVI
Giants 21, Patriots 17
30-for-40, 296 YD, 1 TD, 0 INT

“Eli Manning entered Super Bowl XLVI with the opportunity of a lifetime. If he could beat Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in the Super Bowl for the second time in five years, he’d cement his legacy as a New York sports icon and possibly even reserve a ticket to the Hall of Fame. Those who are into all that talk about “elite” status (not my bag) noted that a win would induct him into that club, as well. If Manning and the New York Giants had gone down in flames in their rematch with the New England Patriots, however, it would have fueled talk that Super Bowl XLII had been a fluke.

“Manning was as cool as ever against the Patriots. You have to have nerves of steel to start a game of this magnitude with nine straight completions, a Super Bowl record. More importantly, he directed the nine-play, 88-yard touchdown drive that put the Giants ahead for good with 57 seconds to go. Manning finished 30-of-40 for 296 yards with one touchdown pass and zero interceptions, winning his second Super Bowl MVP award in five years.”

Joe Flacco, Super Bowl XLVII
Ravens 34, 49ers 31
22-for-33, 287 YD, 3 TD, 0 INT

“Joe Flacco entered Super Bowl XLVII on the precipice of greatness. Three playoff wins had significantly boosted his credentials and ensured he’d receive a huge payday from the Baltimore Ravens. But Flacco still needed one more win to put a stamp on one of the greatest postseason runs by a quarterback in NFL history. If Flacco had struggled against the San Francisco 49ers, his earlier conquests would have been largely forgotten. Flacco had started something, but now he had to finish it.

“You know how a 16-bit player turned into a ball of fire when he was going off in NBA Jam? That was Flacco on Sunday night. Every throw he made — even the throws he shouldn’t have made — were right on target. He finished 22-of-33 for 287 yards and three touchdowns, capping a postseason in which his touchdown-to-interception margin stood at a god-like 11-0. Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP, a well-earned honor for a quarterback who had made the leap.”

Who do you think had the better overall performance?

NJ to propose day honoring NFL Films pioneer

Posted by Giants.com on February 1, 2013 – 8:57 am

sabolTo memorialize one of New Jersey’s most innovative entrepreneurs, Senators Diane Allen and Dawn Marie Addiego (both R-Burlington) announced that they are introducing on Monday a resolution honoring NFL Films pioneer Steve Sabol.

“Steve Sabol inspired the finest cinematic reflection of any sport and left nothing on the field,” Allen said. “His innovative filmmaking documented the intellect, emotion and humanity in America’s most aggressive and popular sport.”

“Steve Sabol’s ingenuity, artistic brilliance and endless commitment to creating history are celebrated across the country and around the world,” Addiego added. “He is a pride of Burlington County whose legacy will surely be continued by NFL Films, with their coverage of this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVII and beyond.”

NFL Films is located in Mount Laurel and has grown over the decades to employ some 250 people and boast the world’s largest sports film library.

“Steve Sabol was a creative genius who changed the way we look at football and sports,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “This is a great honor that I know Steve would proudly share with all of his colleagues at NFL Films headquarters in Mount Laurel.”  Read more »
