Giants' Championship Season DVD Available Today
The Giants' Super Bowl XLVI Championship season has been captured by NFL Films and produced by Vivendi Entertainment on a DVD that will be released for public consumption today.
Several Giants were in Times Square last night to view the premiere on the big screen at Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 Cinema. Eli Manning, JPP, Hakeem Nicks, Antrel Rolle and Mario Manningham were on hand.
I watched this twice over the weekend and thought it was absolutely fantastic. The Giants' season was a rollercoaster ride from the beginning. The lockout and the injuries alone could have left them stalled on the shoulder. They experienced unusual peaks and valleys and at several junctures, things could have gone in many different directions, but they surprisingly didn't.
It's amazing how many plays and sacrifices have to be made just to get to the Super Bowl: how many players have to step up and how luck has to come into play. It shows you how fragile your season is, even if you go on to win the Super Bowl.
For me, when they stacked all the game highlights week-by-week, the one thing that stood out the most was how great (and I do mean great) a talent Hakeem Nicks is. He made dozens of fabulous plays this season. You don't realize it while it's happening week-in and week-out, but when you put them all together, it hits you. He is just phenomenal.
My favorite parts, of course, are Tom Coughlin's locker room speeches and how the players gravitate towards him.
Before the season, there was a poll conducted among NFL players of which NFL coaches they would least like to play for. Coughlin topped the list.
We now have a name for those players: losers....
