A look back to Super Bowl 42 and the catch

ESPN.com  is doing a nice piece on the David Tyree catch from Super Bowl 42 when the Giants upset the New England Patriots 17-14. ABOVE, is a clip of David Tyree explaining everything that happened in the play and what it meant to be a part of history. Here is a quote of the century from David Tyree regarding the final countdown: 

“At that point, everything in me was just saying, I’m not letting this ball go. One hand was dislodged from the football and I just knew I was going to hold onto the ball with my other hand, not knowing that my helmet was the only thing that was giving it a brace. So, it was just a moment of destiny.”

This was the greatest Super Bowl and the greatest catch I have ever seen. Even if you are not a Giants or Patriots fan it is still up there as one of the best ever played. Tyree is out of football but gosh will his heart be ever ingrained in New York and Super Bowl history…
