7. Ellis Hobbs Shoots Himself in the Foot

Super Bowl: XLII (2008)
Final Score: Giants 17, Patriots 14
Date: 2/3/2008

How do you make Plaxico Burress look like a fleet-footed Randy Moss? You have Ellis Hobbs cover him in a Super Bowl. It makes perfect sense if the game-winning catch that ruined the Patriots perfect season was a fade to the 6'5" Burress over the 5'9" Hobbs. It wasn't, Burress ran a slant and go (which is the play he should've run instead of going to that club that same year).
