Super Bowl 2012 Score: 9-0 for Giants in the early lead
After the Patriots stopped the Giants in the first series, Tom Brady was called intentional grounding that paved the way for Giants to score 2-0. Then a 9 plays for Eli Manning that ended up a touchdown pass to Victor Cruz to have a score of 9-0.
Waited but not disappointed. Alone but not lonely as the super bowl starts. What a Super Sunday filled with the utmost expectations. The Patriots vs Giants gigantic showdown in the Super Bowl 2012 has produced the highest level of excitement for all the NFL spectators. The high-powered offense of New England vs the vaunted defense of New York will make this football game a classic in the long run.
Armed with extraordinary arsenals is quarterback Tom Brady who is aiming for his fourth super bowl ring. With Rob Gronkowski recovering at the right time for ankle injury, Brady will have his favorite target on the field when Super Bowl starts. Gronkowski has been contributing huge for the New England Patriots with 17 touchdowns in regular season. Though it is questionable how Gronkowski will play with the injured ankle in this super bowl. If his degree of performance be lowered, then the Patriots will have to take their Plan B in regards to the receiver’s game time.
Brady will have also his long time friend Deion Branch as his deep target. Never forget that Branch knows how exactly to play in the super bowl as he was the Super Bowl 2005 MVP. Branch can still leap high enough to get the pass of Brady but the speed is no longer the same. With Branch having five receptions will help the Patriots in a great way. Furthermore, tight end Aaron Hernandez will be play the important role because he will take most of the snaps when Gronkowski has to rest his ankle. Hernandez can explode if given the opportunity and the Patriots have plays for him.
Wes Welker is the most neglected receiver for the Patriots. Don’t overlook him, he still is the best slot receiver in the NFL and he will make the damage agianst the Giants defense. His speed is one of a kind and that the Giants defense will not keep up with him. Forget not the the person wearing No 85, he will be make some catches that will surprise the Giants. Chad Ochocinco will be playing in the Super Bowl 2012. This is the time for Ochocinco to restore back his public image by making the difference for the New England football team.
But the biggest weapon of Brady will be his offensive line. Brady needs to have an extra second to take care of surveying the field before pullin the trigger. Surely, the success of the Patriots has something to do about Brady’s protection at the pocket. The question is about Brady making all the adjustments as the game progresses. If Brady will have the protection throughout the game then he will get his due. But if the Giants keep on hitting him at the pocket, then the Giants will have the advantage. It is properly needed for the Patriots also to be successful on the ground so that their offense will unpredictable.
New England Patriots defense still is questionable as it hasn’t yet tested with a highly offensive oriented team. This is the first time for the Patriots defense to play tough enough to shutdown the passing game of Eli Mannning.
When it comes to the New York Giants, coach Tom Coughlin will have to push the right buttons when his offense is not moving the chains. It is necessary for the Giants to start early in the game and let the Patriots chase them. Manning’s claimed to be of the same class as Brady will again be the biggest conversational topic in this super bowl game. There’s no longer controversy on Manning really is of the same level of Brady but he still has a lot to prove in terms of his numbers. Of course winning this game will alter the way people perceive on Manning as a quarterback.
Never in the career of Manning that he has great receivers like Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, and Mario Manningham. It is the moment for Manning to put the dagger on Brady’s desire to be the greatest ever. Two daggers on Brady will absolutely place Manning as one of the best quarterbacks in the league. With Nicks as the deep threat, Victor Cruz as the slot receiver, and Mario Manningham as the mid-range receiver, Manning will have his time to find them in this Super Bowl 2012.
