As predicted earlier, the New York Giants have won Super Bowl XLVI. I believed there would be a significantly higher amount of points, but you can’t be right all of the time. Tom Brady had his shot at being in the very rare air of Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw and now that time has passed for another year. Will Brady be known for his three rings or for being unable to beat the Giants? Has Eli solidified his place in the hall? Will Coughlin still have his job questioned come next season? Nobody knows just yet. Here is what we do know; there is hope for the Redskins.
I know, who cares right now? Redskins fans do. Washington matched up well enough to win both games versus the Giants and we have the foundation for a great team. This offseason will be about acquiring playmakers on offense. Imagine a Redskins defense playing with a lead. Imagine a quarterback that you didn’t have to expect two interceptions from, minimum. The defense is about a defensive back or two away from being set. There is reason to be excited for 2012. This of course sounds like loser-talk, which it technically is being that the other 31 teams didn’t win the Super Bowl. Regardless, congratulations to the New York Giants and we’ll see if the Redskins can be 2012’s Cinderella.
