Now that the New York Giants -- the 9-7 New York Giants -- are in Super Bowl XLVI, we're going to hear this factoid repeated over and over: the 5-11 Washington Redskins beat them twice. You'll no doubt hear about how the Redskins' 23-10 victory in Week 15 in New York would have killed the Giants' season had they not rallied to post wins in the last two weeks.
So to get the conversation early, we present to you Anthony Armstrong's stream-of-consciousness tweets on Sunday night following the Giants' 20-17 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers.
Y'all gotta realize we beat em twice. Do I wish it were the #Redskins hell yes! Gotta find some positive thing to build upon...— Anthony Armstrong (@MrArmstrong13) January 23, 2012
...we swept the NFC champ. Beat the SB champ last year. We gotta realize our potential if we make it a weekly effort to get bk on top! #HTTR— Anthony Armstrong (@MrArmstrong13) January 23, 2012
There you have it, folks. If the Redskins make a weekly effort to get back on top, they too can be in the Super Bowl.
