The Giants are not falling over themselves believing that the Patriots’ offense consists of QB Tom Brady and WR Wes Welker. There are plenty of capable players on that offense, including veteran Deion Branch and TEs Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Safety Antrel Rolle was asked about the challenge of facing Brady and Co:
“I don’t know about everybody else but I love it. I love going up against the best of the best. It is a true test to see where our defense is and how we view ourselves going up against Tom Brady. It is going to be a good test.”
Rolle was not buying into the fact that Welker, the NFL’s leading receiver, is always open and virtually unstoppable…
“I don’t know how many passes he got this past Sunday. The Pittsburgh defense did a great job on him. He is human at the end of the day. He is a great receiver and you don’t want to take anything away from him but he is human. The game has to be played on Sunday and I will answer more questions after the game.”

In football parlance, “finesse” has come to be known as a dirty word.
”Finesse and football? Yes,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady agreed. ”This isn’t finesse sport. You don’t go very far if you’re a finesse team.”
And yet, when the Patriots throw as often as they do, it’s hard to avoid the label. Naturally, Brady balked at that concept, saying the Pats run...

Last Sunday, the Steelers exacted their first measure of revenge against Tom Brady's Patriots in quite some time. About seven years, actually. Similarly, the Ravens, who had been tormented by the Steelers for the past five years (at least when a backup QB wasn't starting for Pittsburgh), finally got some payback of their own in Week 1.In both cases, I wouldn't say the...
Nearly four years ago, Eli Manning upstaged Tom Brady to give the New York Giants a stunning Super Bowl win over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots.
That's probably one reason why Manning claims he's in the same class as Brady, and his play this season is backing up that uncharacteristic statement.
