New York Giants 2000 Superbowl Season

Jim Fassel’s job as the New York Giants coach was on the line in the 2000 season and while his team was struggling at the start of the season going 7-4 his team responded after a loss to the Detroit Lions winning 5 in a row to finish the season 12-4.  They earned a bye in the playoffs.  The Giants played the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round of the playoffs 20-10.  They beat a red hot Minnesota Vikings team 41-0 in the NFC Championship game. They met up with the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV. The Giants were down by 10 at half time and could not over come this deficit in the 2nd half.  They ended up losing this game to the Ravens.

The 2000 Giants were a good team who had play makers.  They started out slow, but finished red hot making it to the Superbowl.  I remember watching this team beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship game whooping them.  The Vikings were a team that scored a record number of points that year and the Giants came in and took care of business.  Kerry Collins though threw to many interceptions in the Super Bowl for the Giants to be able to take the Crown as the best team in the NFL.  If Collins does not turn over the ball so many times they might of had a shot at winning the trophy.
