Super Bowl XLVI: Giants Vs. Patriots Open Thread

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.

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