Do any of you actually think there is something wrong with Tom Brady’s ankle?? The walking boot is all Bill Belichick!!! Personally, I think it’s funny. The press takes that stuff hook, line, and sinker. And all the while, Belichick and Brady are laughing their butts off.
I do think the game sets up to be a good one. The Giants defense has an idea what to expect. Notice I said… “has an idea”. Belichick is capable of installing an entirely new offense with two weeks off. The Patriots defense is the key to the game for me. At some point they have to start playing old don’t they?? Bruschi, Seau, Vrabel, and Seymour are a collective 874 years old. I guess you could argue they have started playing old given the struggles of the second half of the season. I know, it’s hard to talk about struggle when they’re 18-0, but you know what I mean. We know the Pats are going to score. What we don’t know is whether the Giants can keep their momentum going for one more game. Eli seems to have finally grasped that if he doesn’t do stupid things with the football, the Giants have a chance to beat anyone. What the Giants offense has done over this run through the playoffs is not rocket surgery!! They’re running the ball effectively and completing short, possession type passes which opens up the vertical passing game. …DUHHH!!! I believe we discovered this formula at about the same time Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue. The question here is whether they can do it when the game starts on Sunday.
