Good morning, New York Giants fans. This is a much more relaxed Sunday than the one I know you went through a week ago. Let's look around the Inter-Google and see what Giants-related stories are floating around cyberspace.

Let's start with this one from the Star-Ledger. It appears fans aren't the only ones with superstiitons or rituals.

Giants take a superstitious route to Super Bowl title |
For the Giants this winter, it was the 45 days of Christmas.

On the first day, they celebrated the holiday as well as the victory over the Jets. After that, they kept winning. So the decorations in the lobby of the Timex Performance Center, including the tree, stayed up.

"You know what, man, I don’t see it happening," Bradshaw said. "I don’t think they believe it, and they’re America’s team.

"It all comes in together. If the fans don’t believe it, the team doesn’t. They’re kinda doubtful with Romo."

With two titles, these Giants already are legends... Next Stop: Dynasty -
Once is a novelty, twice is a legacy and three times is a dynasty.

The Giants aren’t there just yet but, by coming back yet again in the last minute, this time for a 21-17 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, the 2011 team gets to share the glory with the ’07 Giants. Even though the franchise went four years between playoff wins, the linkage is unmistakable. Two titles in four years means the first wasn’t a magnificent blip on the screen. It means general manager Jerry Reese has built a sustainable program. It means coach Tom Coughlin’s system has staying power. It means Eli Manning and Justin Tuck, among others, get to experience the rare pleasure of comparing titles.

Quarterback: Eli Manning, NYG (+20.0)

The Super Bowl MVP was arguably the best player in the league once the regular season ended. Completing 65% of his passes, Manning threw the one interception compared to nine touchdowns and was immense under pressure. People laughed when Eli said he saw himself in the same bracket as the top QBs in the league, and now they can only humbly admit they were wrong. You can’t spell elite without Eli.
