bingo

Greg Williams cost us a Super Bowl in 2011 when he went all out blitz against the 49ers on that final drive. Prevent defense and it's 3 and out, or at least stop the drive well short.

We were rolling that year, Giants in the dome, then Patriots
oh what could have been

lets do it now with a great defense!
really proud of that front four

I was wondering if he was ever going to mention Rob. That's where it really started.
