The Morning Miller On Sports For February 6, 2012 | HS Sports
You Should Know – In Super Bowl XLVI, the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 21-17. The Giants were led by quarterback Eli Manning, who won his second Super Bowl MVP award. Manning was clutch in the fourth quarter. To open New York’s final drive, he made a memorable throw to Mario Manningham for 38 yards along the sideline. New York running back Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a run late. That gave the Patriots the final 57 seconds to land the come-from-behind victory. With the win, that makes it four Super Bowl titles for the New York Giants.
Super Bowl Note – Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski played through a high ankle sprain in last night’s game. His playing wasn’t a surprise at all. Although, he was a non-factor, with only three targets and two catches for 26 yards. Gronkowski was the closest New England player to the Hail Mary ball dropping on the game’s final play.
Jaguars Bite of the Day – Former Jaguars head coach Tom Coughlin won his second Super Bowl with the New York Giants last night. In eight years with New York, Coughlin has coached them to five playoff appearances. With Jacksonville, the 65-year-old Coughlin went 68-60 and qualified for the playoffs for four straight years.
College Football Nugget – Eric LeGrand, the former Rutgers player who was paralyzed from the neck down during a football game in October of 2009, was a guest of Bill Belichick’s son at the Super Bowl. Stephen Belichick played football for Rutgers last year. From the Asbury Park Press, Belichick stated, “It’s great that he’s coming, and anything that me and my dad can do to help him with, we’re obviously more than happy to.”
Broadcasting Note – Actor Will Ferrell was in a strange Super Bowl commercial for Old Milwaukee. According to this post, the ad only ran in North Platte, Nebraska.
Strange Thought of the Day – Giants quarterback Eli Manning loves the fourth quarter.
Tweet of the last 24 hours – @GAlexander21 (Gerald Alexander, New York Jets defensive back) “Brandon Jacobs interviews like a Pro Wrestler.”
Stat(s) of the Day – Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told owner Robert Kraft that he would not have back-to-back bad games. Brady threw for 276 yards, two scores and an interception. During the second and third quarter, he completed 16 consecutive passes.
Link of the Day – Tiquan Underwood, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round of the 2009 draft, was released by New England on Saturday night. Yes, the night before the Super Bowl.
Video of the Day – After Giants coach Tom Coughlin completed a post-game interview with the NFL Network, he received a hug from Flavor Flav. I highly doubt Coughlin knows who Flav is.
Question of the Day – Do you really believe Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots are over and done with?
