Two catches I think are better than this one. Not better plays, just better catches.

Now a play that rivals this one:

The Immaculate Reception.

I have always seen the Immaculate reception and heard so much about it, but what were the circumstances during that play?

Just remember, every time you use the phrase "The Great Escape", you owe d34ng3l0 and I money. I'm just saying. It's being copyrighted as we speak.

Pay us! Now!

In all seriousness though, it was a spectacular effort by Tyree. I think it's a great catch in it's own right. However, you throw in The Great Escape (cha-ching) and it becomes one of the best plays in Super Bowl history.

Of course, I'm probably bias.

I'm not trying to buzz kill it by comparing it to Clark. My point is that this was the most amazing catch I have seen in a loooong while, and it happened to have occurred IN a Super Bowl, in the waning minutes, and set up the game winning TD.

Plus, "the Great Escape" is not indigenous enough to football to carry the distinction that this moment is worth of, having been used tons of times in other genres.

I'm telling you, this should and likely will go down as one of the legendary moments in all the annals of this great game we love.
Bottom line is that it's not going take the name "The Catch" away. That has already been set in stone and represents something great in it's own regard. Whether you believe it's better or worse than what we witnessed tonight is simply one person's opinion.

I said out loud when Eli somehow got out and launched the ball that if someone catches it the Giants win.

But I think that play is bigger than that. That is a career defining play for Eli, he now has done something that his brother hasnt, he has made the play that won his team a superbowl, Peyton bascially got an MVP by default, Eli won it.

That play was the highlight of the game, probably the best play of the season.

When i saw him pulled by Adalius Thomas i was like: ******* throw it away or make a shuffle pass... but what then happened...WOW.

It shouldnt be the scramble because, well he didnt scramble alot. The Catch? No . Dont disrespect the 9ners and Eli Manning. The Great Escape? Yes. I mean wasnt it Eli who kept the play going?

One of the most amazing plays in super bowl history. I dont think it will be as remembered as many of the others because it did not end the game on that moment. But, it sure is one of the greatest.

Won't take credit for this, got it from another board, but I think "The Perfect Reception" (although I still say 'Completion' is more universal for the entire play) has a bit of character to it and dual meaning - basically, the reception that killed the Pats' chance at perfection or at least the peak moment of the drive that did, and secondly, it was anything but a perfect passing play that did it.

Or for that matter, maybe "The Imperfect Reception/Completion" to highlight the latter above meaning but it still references the Pats' quest for perfection by the sheer inclusion of the word perfect.

I'm just so happy for Tyree. First of all he, unexpectedly lost his mother a month ago. But besides that Tyree, is basically just a special team guy. I don't know why we never give him more plays on offense or a look as our #3 WR when guys were injured. Over the past 4 years, everytime David Tyree gots on the field, he makes plays.

I think both parts of the play were amazing we would not be talking about it if the catch was not made.And there would not be a catch if it were not for the great escape.

It so hard to pin that play on just one guy. That play was amazing by both Eli and Tyree. It was simply an amazing play, and probably the greatest play in SB history.

They should call it "The Play"

That entire drive was something else. Maybe its bc im in euphoria right now, but I still can't believe it. What a game.

That was such an insane catch I have no idea what to think about it...I was actually a little surprised they didn't call Eli down in the pocket for forward progress but oh well....

One of the best catches I can remember seeing recently.

I'm all for "The Great Escape". Everyone will know what play you mean, and everyone will know what ensues.

The thing is, it has to be a two word phrase. The Catch, The Drive, The Tackle, etc, they were all 2 word phrases.

What 2 words can describe this play in its entirety? I don't know if thats possible. The Escape doesn't discuss the incredible play made by Tyree. The Catch doesn't explain what Eli did.

What 2 words can describe both? This is a hard one.

It was a great play and "the great escape" fits it well, but I think people are just overhyping it a bit at this point, it's not the greatest SB play of all time, I can think of a couple more impressive plays and I don't even think that this was the toughest catch to make this year, yes the circumstances were the biggest, but I can think of one catch that would have been flat out harder to make and it was Ronald Curry against Minn. Getting popped from behind and being blanketed by 2 defenders, lost his helmet and still made the catch.

The Great Escape works so well. Dont know if there could be something to incorporate both the escape and the completion. Hm. I will get my brilliant mind on that.

"The Impossible" ? I mean impossible concerning ending the Perfect streak, making an impossible catch and making an impossible escape?

Getting popped from behind and being blanketed by 2 defenders, lost his helmet and still made the catch.

The circumstances buddy. Thats what makes this just so amazing. This would have been another regular and amazing play if it were against the Vikings with nothing on the line.

This play was against the 18-0 Patriots with less than 2 minutes left while they are down by 4. Thats why this play goes down in history, and another of Roethlisberger or Romo's escapes dont.
