That was a good read.

“It was Bill Parcells’ and Bill Belichick’s philosophy against Bill Walsh’s philosophy,” he said. “We were just different in how we played and it was just an epic matchup. The Giants were very very physical and played in a caliber that was outstanding to watch. With our type of offense against that type of defense, our type of defense against that type of offense, they were epic battles.”


That was a great era to be a football fan.

Those games were always seemed to be heavy-weight match-ups... some of them were epic.
They were.

Between 1984 - 1990 they met in the playoffs four times, three of those the winner went on to win the Super Bowl (1985 being the exception).

The 1990 NFC Championship Game is still the best football game I've ever witnessed - I cherish the DVD copy and watch it every off season.
Not to dwell on losing,

but even the Monday Night loss to SF in 1990, was a great game to watch. One hell of a battle. I would have liked to see them let Simms & Lott go at it.
Those were indeed the days.

Agree on the 1990 NFC Championship game.

Sigh

I've ever seen. I remember being 9 years old going nuts when Marshall drilled Montana.

sigh, Anderson trucking Lott, the fake punt and a play that only the helmet catch has managed to exceed as my all time favourite - Marshall hustling after slipping twice to absolutely destroy Joe Montana - just crushed him like a pop can
For any of you younger guys here

those matchups were insane. So much fun and very physical.
Or as McAdoo likes to say heavy handed.

and the RUmble in the Jungle all rolled into one. Great games. 2 polar opposite philosophies. Great coaches and staffs, great players. Watch that and it becomes more difficult towatch the shit on field product we see today.
