New York Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty promised a parade next week, essentially guaranteeing a Super Bowl victory.
For their part, the New England Patriots were less than impressed with Canty's comments, according to the New York Daily News.
"They've got a parade?" Patriots wideout Deion Sanders told the newspaper. "I don't know, man. Anybody can throw a parade. I can throw a parade if I want to. I think anybody can throw a parade."
New England tackle Matt Light also dismissed Canty's comments, saying it goes "in one ear and out the other."
Canty told the New York Daily News to "get ready for a great game on Super Bowl Sunday. And get ready for a parade on Tuesday."
The two teams will play on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI - with a parade going to the winner.
