    What they're saying

    By Times staff writer

    © St. Petersburg Times, published January 15, 2001

    The lowest scoring Super Bowl in history was Super Bowl VII (Miami 14, Washington 7). Keep that in mind when watching Super Bowl XXXV in two weeks.

    Tom Jackson, ESPN

    It might be the unlikeliest of Super Bowls, showcasing one team that went five games without scoring a touchdown against another that went five months without impressing anybody

    Baltimore survived its offensive dry spell with a record-setting defense. The New York Giants overcame their anonymity with opportunism.

    These two long shots now have conference championship trophies and a date Jan. 28 to play for the NFL title in Tampa, where the Giants won the Super Bowl in 1991.

    The Ravens opened as 1-point favorites and quickly moved to 21/2.

    "I feel good about my team because I got a sense after today's game that they feel like they have unfinished business," Giants coach Jim Fassel said after his team shocked the Vikings 41-0 in the NFC Championship. "We still have one more game to win."

    But they'll have to do it against the NFL's best defense.

    Hal Bock, Associated Press

    Get over it, America. End the snickering. Stop asking, how? Or, why? Show a little respect, would you

    The New York Giants are going to the Super Bowl, and very suddenly here Sunday, that no longer seemed like such an outrageous idea. Even the NFL might survive this world championship game intrusion by a team that on one cloudy afternoon in the Meadowlands went from unworthy to unbelievable.
