The Giants simply own the Patriots

The comparisons between the Giants' Super Bowl championship four years ago and the one won Sunday in Indianapolis are eerily similar.

I grew tired of it after the Giants beat the Packers. And it grew and grew and grew.

And it became reality late Sunday when Tom Brady's Hail Mary fell to the turf.

The Giants not only beat the Patriots again, they rallied for a late score to win it, just like in Super Bowl XLII.

Strange stuff.

It's also amazing how the Giants have owned the Patriots.

There once was an old saying about how you couldn't beat Bill Belichick twice in a season.

The Giants just did it.

Personally, I think Belichick is overrated. I think Spygate tainted is other Super Bowl wins and his failure to win since those revelations confirms it to the doubters.

Belichick needed this win.

He didn't get it.

The Giants -- and Tom Coughlin -- own the Patriots.

So much for Byron the great backup

I never understood the Steelers' fascination with their backup quarterbacks.

They've had either Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich for what seems like ages now.

And when the Steelers really needed a backup, Leftwich couldn't deliver.

Leftwich rambled 31 yards for a touchdown Sunday against the Ravens, but other than that burst, the Steelers couldn't do anything on offense in a 13-10 loss that puts them in a bad position in the AFC North.

Leftwich, with his long delivery, looks better suited for the Pirates' bullpen than behind center.

He went 18-for-39 passing for 201 yards, but couldn't help a Steelers' offense that looks lost right now.

The Ravens came into the game with a weak defense. The thought was Leftwich could manage the game, the Steelers could find a running back to rely on and they'd escape with a win.

It didn't work out that way.

And it looks like we could see Batch at QB this week -- or someone else.

The Steelers are worried about Leftw…
