Tom Brady vs. the Giants: A look at all of the QB's matchups against New York

  Tom Brady vs. the Giants: A look at all of the QB's matchups against New York Tom Brady loves to beat the Giants. That's because of the two enormous games he lost to them and other close calls. We look back at their history.Make no mistake: The legendary quarterback — previously with the Patriots and now with the Buccaneers — certainly respects the history between the G.O.A.T. and Big Blue.

The Helmet Catch was an American football play involving New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver David Tyree in the final two minutes of Super Bowl XLII on February 3, 2008. It featured Manning escaping from the grasp of three New England Patriots defensive players and

I love joe buck . Just wish the helmet catch call was more exciting. Other than that I enjoy him. Honestly it kind of pisses me off . There so many guys with incredible careers who have just barely fallen short of the HOF but Joe Buck gets in? Dudes alright but I don’t get it him getting a jacket. It doesn’t make sense for me that tons of great players are waiting to get in cause the standards are so high for them, but Joe gets it just cause he’s been commentating for awhile and his dad was a legend.

Joe Buck has long been a lightning rod for fan criticism, and quite possibly the biggest complaint has been his perceived lack of excitement during his games' biggest moments.

His call of the New York Giants' famous helmet catch, in which all the Fox announcer said at the end of the play was "Caught by Tyree," is considered one such moment. Naturally, the matter came up when he joined Eli Manning on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" Manning-cast.

Joe Buck: 'I kind of low-keyed' helmet catch

During the fourth quarter of Monday's game between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills, Buck mocked Giants fans for their complaints about how he handled the biggest play of Super Bowl XLII, but he did admit he "sort of low-keyed" the moment.

  Manningcast guest list Week 11: Here's who will join Peyton, Eli Manning on 'Monday Night Football' The Mannings will be joined by the likes of Julian Edelman and Condoleezza Rice on "Monday Night Football" in Week 10.On paper, this always looked to be one of the easiest matchups for the Mannings to add guests. Peyton Manning could have tapped into his connection with his former Colts coach Tony Dungy, who coached the Buccaneers before going to Indianapolis, to get a former Bucs great on the broadcast.

Joe Buck got some breaks early in his career that very, very few others have, and those were almost exclusively because of his father. But thinking about it for a second I realize that my biggest complaint with Buck is that he's not as excitable as I want him to be in booth, which is something I think he has embraced in recent memory and we are hearing more personality in his performance. He doesn't fumble many calls and his voice isn't grating or anything to listen to, so I guess I'm kind of a fan ?

I did like his calling of the end of the game, lots of excitement to build up to the final touchdown. Between Joe , Jim Nantz, and Al Michaels in terms of the biggest names to be calling the Super Bowl these days, I'm not sure who I would prefer out of the three. They all have their ups and downs. Worse than expected. Go back and listen to him call the meaningless Rodgers hail Mary against the Giants in the payoffs this year. He sounded more excited than any play in the Superbowl.

Buck blamed the uncertainty of the play and the size of the Super Bowl stage for his hesitation, then pointed to his later call of Manning's game-winning touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress as a better call:

Buck's comments:

"When you're up there and you know you're doing the game for 100 million people, you've to be really sure. First of all, Eli gets no credit for getting out of that pile of bodies and even throwing the ball. And then all Giants fans are like 'Come on, Buck. I mean, the guy catches the ball on his helmet, give me a break, man. You're supposed to be excited, for my Giants.' I'm like 'I wasn't sure he caught the ball!' If you're going to do it for 100 million people, you better damn well be right.

It could be his well-documented love affair with the Dallas Cowboys or New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Regardless of the reason, Bayless has never had too many good things to say about the Giants or their quarterback, Eli Manning Tyree leaped to make the catch with safety Rodney Harrison in tight coverage attempting to knock the ball away. Initially, Tyree caught the ball with both hands but Harrison’s arm knocked Tyree’s left hand off it. Tyree made the business decision to secure it against the side of his helmet .

The Helmet Catch is one of the best plays in sports history, let alone in Giants ' lore. And let's not forget the first part of that play. Eli Manning 's escape was just as improbable as David Tyree's catch , with referee Mike Carey getting set to whistle the play dead. If it weren't for that element of the play, then the Sideline Catch might be closer in the rankings. "That's when I honestly became an Eli Manning fan . I always loved his game, always appreciated him as a teammate, but that game made me a fan , to the point where I could look up at him and I could honestly glow because I knew that he had that dog in him.

"So, I kind of low-keyed it, we got through it. I still saved one of the best calls I've ever head was Eli to Plaxico Burress at the end of that game was magical."

The younger Manning at least seemed to accept the explanation, telling Buck "you totally redeemed yourself" on the Burress call.

That wasn't the only entertaining moment Buck, who continues to loosen with age, had during his Manning-cast appearance. The Mannings pushed Buck into attempting to call part of the game without his usual prep, leading to a new nickname for Bills running back Devin Singletary: "Whoever the hell that is."

Buck, who was calling in from Cabo, Mexico, later used a cheeky question from Peyton Manning to burn the heck out of his host:

With a 14-10 win in hand for the Patriots at the end of the game, Buck concluded his appearance with a Fox plug on his rival network. That may hurt his chances of coming back.
