This year Eli Manning and big brother Peyton ended up in the Pro Bowl instead of the Super Bowl - USA TODAY Sports
The Giants won the Super Bowl just a season ago. Here is a look back at what we were writing about on the Saturday of Super Bowl week in 2012.
Let's continue our look back into the Big Blue View archives at Super Bowl week 2012. Today, we look at some of what was making headlines at BBV on Saturday as the New York Giants readied to face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
Editor's note: Big Blue View and NESN.com are teaming up for a Super Bowl edition of Across Enemy Lines. Jeff Howe of NESN.com answered my New England Patriots questions. In kind, I answered their questions about the New York Giants. Here is an excerpt of my [Sean Kerr's] Q&A with Jeff.
Will former New York Giants coach Bill Parcells be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame today? The 44 voters are meeting today to determine that, and the view from here is that Parcells should be voted in.
I don't know how you would vote against Parcells today. Two Super Bowl titles with the Giants, a Super Bowl appearance with the Patriots and playoff appearances as head coach of both the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys. Tuna finished his career with 172 victories.
Valentine's View: Parcells, for political reasons I really still don't understand, was not elected last year. Will the Hall of Fame voters see the error of their ways and elect him this time?
