Super Bowl XLVI: Giants Vs. Patriots Open Thread

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JANUARY 22: Frank Gore #21 of the San Francisco 49ers runs the ball against Mathias Kiwanuka #94 of the New York Giants during the second half of the NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park on January 22, 2012 in San Francisco, California. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)

The school with the most players on tonight's Super Bowl rosters is down to just three. The Giants' Mark Herzlich is inactive for tonight's Super Bowl against the Pats. Bittersweet for the former Boston College linebacker who overcame the odds and reached the Super Bowl in his first pro season.

Also inactive for tonight's game -- if you believe Bill Belichick's injury report -- is Patriots DT Ron Brace.

With center Dan Koppen also out for the season, that leaves just three Eagles that will see the field tonight -- guard Chris Snee, linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka and return man Will Blackmon. They all play for the Giants (hint, hint).

Brace and Koppen or Blackmon, Herzlich, Kiwanuka and Snee look to become only the 23rd and 24th (and 25th and 26th) former Boston College Eagles to win a Super Bowl. Snee (XLII), Kiwanuka (XLII) and Steve DeOssie (XXV) are the only Eagles to have won the Super Bowl with the Giants, while Koppen (XXXIX, XXXVIII), Damien Woody (XXXVIII, XXXVI), Mike Cloud (XXXVIII) and Chris Sullivan (XXXVI) have all won as members of the Patriots.

Leave your thoughts on the game below. For more on Pats, check out Pats Pulpit and Big Blue View for the Giants.

And to the Giants, please don't make me watch Jimmy Fallon / Drew Barrymore dreck.
