Good to see the team with passion win it for once !

An incredible catch in the last drive like a basketball
jump shot going after the ball and
he still came up with it landing on his back bent backwards !
=============
That play will be crystallized in Super Bowl lore. It came on third down, with the clock evaporating, with Manning running for his life, with Tyree reaching and snatching and digging his fingertips into leather and never letting go.

It was a schoolyard play, busted and broken, certainly not pretty but absolutely productive. It was thrown by a quarterback who was still flirting with inconsistent growing pains as little as six weeks ago. It was caught by a reserve receiver who lost his mother during the holidays and was better known for being a special-teamer.

"That play took a few years off my life," Strahan said.
==============
WINNER: Eli Manning to David Tyree

Perhaps no play epitomized the Giants' heart in this game more than their last hookup. First, Manning was all but sacked three different times, somehow fought it all off, scrambled free and made a desperation throw for an against-the-helmet, test of wills 32-yard catch by Tyree.

That was the stuff of legend.

All over Phoenix this week hung signs that read "Who Wants It More?" Turns out it was a former sixth-round pick.
===============
GLENDALE, Ariz. - To grasp just how unlikely David Tyree's clutch performance was last night, understand this: He had more receiving yards (43) and touchdowns (one) in Super Bowl XLII than he did in his entire 2007 season.
=============
Scrambling to his right, he made a desperate, dangerous toss deep down the middle where defensive backs Rodney Harrison and Asante Samuel were lurking. Tyree jumped up and with Harrison on his back, managed to get both hands on the ball.

Harrison fought him the whole way, slapping at the ball and momentarily pinning it to Tyree's helmet. That gave Tyree a chance to get a better grip and as he fell backward, he had the presence to hold the ball aloft to show it was his.

"I just wouldn't let go," he said. "They were trying to say they had the ball. They snatched it," he said.

===============
In fact, he had to come back twice. And the finale was a heart-stopping drive that was the perfect ending to this heart-stopping season. In what will go down as one of the greatest Super Bowl highlights ever, Manning escaped a seeming sack and completed a 32-yard pass to little-used receiver David Tyree - who outfought Rodney Harrison for the ball and balanced it on his helmet and kept it from hitting the ground at the Patriots' 24. Then, on another third down, there was a big 12-yard catch at the sideline from rookie Steve Smith at the 13.
...
It was the most bitter of losses, too, because New England (18-1) was one play from winning, but its defense couldn't stop a 12-play, 83-yard drive that featured a spectacular leaping catch by David Tyree, who scored New York's first touchdown.
...
"It's the greatest feeling in professional sports," Burress said before bursting into tears.

The Patriots were done in not so much by the pressure of the first unbeaten season in 35 years as by the pressure of a smothering Giants pass rush. Tom Brady, the league's Most Valuable Player and winner of his first three Super Bowl, was sacked five times, hurried a dozen more and at one point wound up on his knees, his hands on his hips following one of many poor throws.

Hey, you'd be pissed too, if your world just crashed in front of your eyes... That was a great team! They just came up a little short tonight.
