Pats' Super Bowl stance: Deferential
Their willingness to let the Giants have their way was evident early, and often.
Good game plan: Let the Giants have their way. From the pregame coin toss to that last desperate heave, the Patriots seemed to play second fiddle in the Super Bowl XLVI orchestra. ESPN.com's Drew Litton sketched the game from New England's perspective.
For a look at the game from the Giants' point of view, check out Kurt Snibbe's cartoon.
Drew Litton began drawing Bugs Bunny cartoons on his brother's wall in crayons sometime around 1966. He honed his skills by learning to draw in algebra class. His cartoons appear daily on DrewLitton.com. He has been honored by the National Cartoonists Society as one of the nation's best sports cartoonists. He and his wife, Marcia, reside with their very caffeinated schnauzer in Parker, Colo.
