Default Sshhhhh.....don't tell anyone, but its not much of a rematch

True, the head coaches are the same and the quarterback is the same, but the Super Bowl teams are very different than 4 years ago.

Giants - 16 players same
Patriots - 7 players same

You can see the list here:

Let's not tell anybody though.

that's a lot of Giants actually, but the Pats team has changed a good deal

the 7 that are the same are pretty big names though...

It's a rematch...

the Fans are still the same... and that's what's most important.

Same head coaches, same quarterbacks, same kickers(yeah, so what?)....still enough to be a rematch.

You don't think people realize these teams are very different 4 years later. Football is all about the teams, quarterbacks and coaches. All three remain the same, therefore it is a rematch.

I think Manningham or Ballard. Pats on going to collapse on Cruz and double Nicks, neither Manningham nor Ballard will be covered by anyone good all game.

No I think they don't. Tell the average sports fan there are only 7 players the same on the Patriots, and they'd be shocked.

Football has that kind of turnover. If you have the same Coach, same QB, and a few of the same stars it's kind of considered the same group. Yes, it's interesting so few Pats remain but it's not shocking. (All the Pats that are gone feel like all the good guys from the defense. Good move by the Pats jettisoning all those old guys to replace with all the new kids who suck or are perpetually injured.

it's a rematch regardless of the players IMO

if Dallas plays the Steelers in the SB....THAT IS A REMATCH


ZERO players are the same...franchise is the exact same though

it's the city of Dallas' football team vs the city of Pittsburgh

That would be a very old school rematch.

I meant if it had been this year it would be considered a rematch

Or last year...or next year...or any year.
