As mentioned before: NFL Playoffs - Who are we rooting for?
Only the Ravens & Giants had links to the Orange.
As pointed out last week by Lots of Pulp New England Patriots coach Matt Patricia (who is listed on the team's website as the Safties coach) was a graduate assistant at Syracuse from 2001-2003.
Jameel McClain (Baltimore Ravens) – 2 tackles in loss @ New England
Arthur Jones (Baltimore Ravens) – 1 tackle in loss @ New England
Tom Coughlin (New York Giants) - The Giants ran 90 plays (58 pass/26 run) for 352 total yards in an OT win @ San Francisco. Coughlin was 1/1 on coaches challenges which included a costly turnover by the 49ers. The Giants will now travel to Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI & a rematch of Super Bowl XLII which was highlighted by former Orange WR David Tyree.
With Tom Coughlin left as the only SU alum taking part in the Super Bowl (kind of) we all become de facto Giants fans, so let's go G-men!
Lets also not forget the Patriots were responsible for ending the Dick MacPherson era at Syracuse when he left to become the coach in 1991.
