From NESN:

Super Bowl XLII was not lost on Feb. 3, 2008. The Patriots' perfect season was not lost on the football field at all, actually.

It was all lost in front of a microphone on Jan. 30, 2008. That's when Tom Brady couldn't hold back his laughter upon hearing Giants receiver Plaxico Burress' Super Bowl prediction.

"We're only gonna score 17 points? Ha ha ha," Brady told reporters when informed of Burress' 23-17 prediction. "OK. Is Plax playing defense?"

As that giggle left Brady's mouth, so too went the Patriots' Super Bowl chances.

OK, that may be extreme hyperbole, but some Giants players told Steve Serby of the New York Post that seeing Brady's giggle was more motivation than they would ever need.

"I'm in a room with [several defensive players] and we kinda see this pretty boy chuckle -- like, 'We're only gonna score 17 points!' -- and it just seems like the whole room turned red," Justin Tuck told the Post. "Like everybody was quiet. Literally fist-clenching, teeth. ... If we could have went and played right then, we would have went and played that second."

Tuck finished that game with six tackles and two sacks on Brady, and he forced a fumble as well. Osi Umenyiora recovered that fumble, and he shared his memory of Brady's chuckle.

"I remember the arrogance of the whole way he scoffed," Umenyiora told the Post. "I remember that making us particularly angry. ... We just knew then that we were gonna take his head off. We just knew that right then. I mean, come on, man. There's levels of arrogance, you understand what I mean? In the interview, like psshh, 'We're only gonna score 17 points?'"

In Brady's defense, the quarterback had reason to be confident in his offense. The Patriots scored 36.8 points per game that year during the regular season, and they put up 38 points at New York in Week 17.

Brady also immediately launched back into Bill Belichick/Patriots' Way mode, lauding Burress as a great player and saying the Giants "should have confidence."

"23-17?," Brady later added with incredulity. "I wish he said like 45-42 or something like that. At least he'd give us a little more credit for scoring a few points."

The Patriots, of course, ended up scoring just 14 points in the 17-14 loss.

"We don't make predictions," Brady said that day. "We just let our play do the talking. I learned that lesson early in my career. No matter what you say during the week, and God knows we say a lot this entire week, but we're focused on going out there and trying to do our very best."

Apparently, Brady wasn't done learning lessons, as the Giants taught him another one just a few days later. Don't expect to see too much giggling from Brady this time around.

Comments 1-100 (of 118):
  • Wow,the Giants were just one easy Assante Samuel missed interception away from going home losers. Who would have been chuckling then? Differen game this time.
  • Sounds like typical Patriot fan whining to me.
  • Sounds like a typical hater/Giants fan over confident in their over rated team. They were lucky Samuel has hands of stone. But then again, that botched interception that should have been kinda describes Eli's career. Happened twice except with clashing defenders in the game against the 49ers.
  • Dear delusional pat's fan , the result will be exactly the same .. Can't wait to see the little right wing ***** slamming his purse on the grass after his 6 th sack like he did last time the Giants handed him his ass ..
  • YUP, DIFFERENT GAME,SAME RESULTS.....ENJOY :)
  • But he did miss it so what's your point?
  • Wow, the patriots were just one blown call away about a "tuck rule" from not going to tom brady's first super bowl, and this year, they were one blown easy catch in the end zone by the ravens from not going to the super bowl at all, again. Don't cry about tom brady's and the patriots" luck!!
  • blah blah blah. all u idiots with yur ifs and should haves. they played the game and one team made plays and the other did not. period. ifs and buts are for cry babies. make the catch, make a tackle, make the plays or shut up and live with the real world results. if samuel intercepts, get real. he didnt. tyree made the catch. where was the secondary? not knocking the ball down. they play the game and win or dont. too frickin bad.
  • Yes, there are levels of arrogance. Apparently Umenyiora was unable to see his own. Not only one missed pick, but also one total luck helmet catch, and one clock mismanagement issue from not scoring the winning TD.

    Also, the Giants' endless harping on Brady as being a 'pretty boy' and soft is getting old. How was his play to score the go ahead TD against the Ravens in any way soft?
  • More Whining!!!!!
  • Dirtywater, I agree. Brady is certainly not soft. In fact I think he is one tough dude. I've been watiching take hits every week for 11 years. He is the best at QB sneaks because he's not afraid to get hit. Remember the hit he took in the 1st Denver game. Aside from getting his knee torn up by an illegal hit, h has not missed many games. Anyone who disgrees does not watch the Patriots play.
  • softer than tissue
  • I'm sure You're a real bad dude Whodat...
  • Brady had his knee tore up by a completely LEGAL hit at the time.
  • It wasn't an Illegal hit at the time(Hints the Brady Rule) Whinning again about their baby Tom
  • he wears his wifes panties dude... he is precious tom lmao.
  • And the Giants don't whine? Why is it the Pats always get killed over nothing that gets exaggerated into something stupid and untrue? Next the haters will say that giggling is against the rules.
  • Cmon' guys. Brady's comments were just good-natured kidding. I don't think Brady is arrogant. He knows he's up against a tough team and will do his best to win. There's nothing wrong with that.
  • Totally agree with that. But people are retarded in chat rooms so what can we expect to hear?
  • I'm glad the Patriots and precious tom brady lost that game, that day I became a NY Giant fan.and their previous SuperBowl wins should all be marked with an *...they ran up the scores on teams all season long-it was justice for them to win every game and then to lose the BIG GAME.everyone with a brain knows they cheated for years,if the NFL had any balls it would be noted the won by cheating.
  • This dude sounds like a Raider fan still pissed off about the tuck game. Running up the score is not illegal. Anyone who brings up spygate is a loser...Mangini just ratted out Belichick and people like Jimmy Johnson and Bill Cowher said that the taping of sideline coaches is done all the time. That's why the league did nothing except slap a fine to shup up the whiners like You.
  • Waaaaa
  • DUDE YOUR A RETARD!!!! YOU AND EVERYONE HATES ON TOM BRADY BECAUSE HE IS THE BEST AND EVERY TEAM WISHES THEY HAD A BRADY ON THEIR TEAM INCLUDING YOU!!!! NEITHER ELI NOR PAYTON WILL EVER HAVE TWO SUPERBOWL WINS AND THEY WILL ALWAYS BE OVER SHADOWED BY TOM BRADY!!!! AND CHEATING PLEASE GET A LIFE!!!
  • Cheating will make you win. If I can remember correctly, Matt Cassell hadn't started since High School and he went 11-5. It's not Tom Brady, it's your cheating ways. If the Pats had Peyton they'd be even better. The Colts went 2-14 without Manning. NUFFY said
  • You made a mistake.. I think you meant to say Coaching will make you win. And you are correct about that. Also the colts are nothing without Peyton. 2-14 is because no Peyton and you admit that in your post. However without Brady we went 11-5 because Belicheck is an amazing coach.
  • So you become fans of teams after they win superbowls? Does that make you feel like a winner every year? I loved the Pats before they ever won superbowls. Man it is special to have a team that has played so well over the past 10 years. Something that I know you are envious of. I do understand though. I guess I would be too if I didnt have a good hometown team.....
  • I give them a better shot at covering the Pat's receivers than the Pats covering the Giants receivers, especially since Brady is going to be under pressure more than Eli. We'll have to see how healthy Gronk is too.
  • The giants covered them pretty good when they played them in the season. The Pats easy season made them look alot better then they actually are this year. the ravens showed just how bad the team looks against a play off caliber team. The pats only played 3 playoff caliber teams this season and they only beat 1.. and guess what team that was? the Broncos. The giants are the under dogs with the tougher schedule and bigger wins.Because brady threw for 500 yrds against miami,cleveland and kansas city
  • First off, Pats receivers had a field day against the Giants, especially the tight ends. Second, they beat the Ravens.

    Third, the Giants lost to 6 losing teams is year!!!!

    BTW..the Ravens had a winning record,many the Pats beat them. Go back to kindergarten please.
  • The Raven kicker cost them the game!
  • Not the Ravens kicker.It was the dropped ball in teh endzone that truly cost them the game. All that guy had to do was turn away from the defender and the Ravens would have won.. Instead I think he got too excited the very moment he caught the ball and was not expecting the ball slap to F him over. Yeah Pats got so freaking lucky. Giants did too with that punt that went of that guys knee.. San Fran beat themselves and if it was not for stupidity they would be playing the Pats... In reality it should be San Fran against the Ravens. Pats and Giants got some luck but they both deserve to be where they are...Well except the Giants crappy regular season but that was atoned for when they beat Green Bay.
  • One less Tight End. Whats his name, ankle man
  • too bad tommy boy wont have time to throw to his recievers. go ahead, bet it all.. your confident :)
  • I watched footage of defenders having a clean shot at Brady right off the line of scrimmage and Brady getting the ball out for a 13 yard gain on what should have been a sack. We can handle the pressure but it will pose a problem if its consistent like in 2008. Giants have a nasty pass rush but the Pats will be ready for it. Belicheck always prepares his team for all situations. He is a situational coach and it should be a great superbowl.
  • Its Feb 5th and it will be a great game. Belicheck will have the team prepared well. Im sure the Giants coach.. You know, Fire Marshall Bill. Yeah he will have them prepared as well. He is a great post season coach but sucks during the regular season for some reason.
  • Brady qualified himself on the field a long time ago. Cat calls & Rabbit Ears mean very little to one of the very best Journeyman Q B's of all time. He doesn't have a beautiful lady because he looks like Bill Maher
  • Of course Brady is arrogant! And I'm so proud of my boys for shutting him up the last time they met in the Supper Bowl. Yes, Osi and Rolle have a tendency to open their mouths and say things they shouldn't, which I don't like. However, I'd have to say Brady is one, if not the most cockiest, arrogant players. And that's not just my opinion. I read an article in Sports Illustrated a while back about what player you'd like to sack the most. It was Brady. But watch out, if you sack him he'll think it's unfair and whine/cry to the refs, or pout and throw his water cup. Eli got sacked I think 6 times last week. But he never complains. Just jumps right back up and continues with the game. More players should be like Eli, confident yet humble.
  • There's is one and only one reason someone hated Brady. Because he beats them. And that is why so many fans hate the Pats. Because they beat YOUR team most of the time.
    No matter what happens this year, Brady is going to the hall of fame and will always be in the discussion of GREATEST QB's of ALL TIME. You haters will just have to live with it.
    Only 1 other QB has taken his team to 5 Super Bowls. Only 1. And Brady has more SB rings than Elway.
    Goodnight whiners.
  • YOU READY FOR THE REPEAT ???? YOUR BITCHES ARE GOING DOWN TO THE GIANTS..... AGAIN SALLY.
  • Go Eli! I'm with you,Brady whines crys and pouts, I hope he eats his chuckles, and words Go Giants win this thing and call Brady a looser!
  • Brady admitted in front of the entire stadium after the Ravens win that he sucked that game. Eli is a self proclaimed "Elite Player". I never heard Brady put himself in a class. Your comments could not be more wrong.
  • If Brady is arrogant, why did he say "I sucked" after the win over the Ravens last week? I hope Tuck's remark about "pretty boy" Brady will motivate the Pats to show him why they have been the best team in the new millenium and Brady the best quarterback. If their defense can play as well as they did last week, I think they will.

  • It's amusing that they need that to get it up for the game.
    What would Manning of said if told the same thing of a Pats player?
    "Well duh...er...ok, thanks for telling me how many you'll let me get, duh."
    Giants...morons.
  • Anyone ever notice that when Eli has his helmet on he looks like he just arrived on the short bus? Id rather be a pretty boy I guess. I hope the Pats wipe the turf with his whiny face. Giants didnt deserve the win against San francisco, Niners special teams gift wrapped that game. I think the better team will win here, The Patriots
  • AND THE RAVENS DIDNT GIVE YOUR TEAM THE GAME ?? PAY ATTENTION TO BRADYS FACE EVERYTIME HE GETS SACKED IN THE SUPERBOWL, HE IS SOFTER THEN TOILET PAPER LMAO.
  • Oh, And the Patriots earned their win?? lol They deserved to beat the Ravens. You Boston fans do take the cake..lol im not a fan of either team but anytime Brady gets hit he looks for the flag, anytime a receiver doesnt catch the ball they are looking for flags. Eli took a beating and didn't complain one time. About Brady with his rings compared to Elway, its a team game. I think Brady is in the top 5 of all time but the difference between him and the others is that he is always complaining.
  • I watch all the Pats games and I dont pick up on what you are saying. Normal football dude. I see players on all teams look for flags ALL THE TIME. This is not new or isolated to one player. Brady gets sacked and gets right back up just like any NFL QB would do.
  • Its very easy to say Brady is arrogant and pretty, but facts remain, he's broken many records of previous players, and we should always remember it takes a "team" to win games, each individual helps to win or lose. I'm very proud to be a Patriots fan, win,lose or draw! According to statistics, there is approximately two to three teams who have won three Super Bowls, and it so happens, the Patriots is are one of them, and that says it all...Every player has their own personality, and we should respect that, whether we support them or not, they're there and we're not. Rave on Pats!
  • How many would they have won without cheating? And anyone who thinks they didn't cheat then, or thinks they still don't cheat is not watching the same games I have! And Brady is arrogant, cocky, and stuck on himself! HE thinks he is the GOD of the entire team. I am not a Patriot or Giants fan, but will ALWAYS root against the arrogant Brady and the cheating Belichek! Go Giants!!!!!
  • It will be with extreme pleasure to see Plaxico get his fat mouth shoved up his A$$
  • Plaxico isn't a Giant anymore,so he won't even be on the field brainiac.
  • Still hoping eh? Too bad you can hope forever! At least Brady, hopefully has learned to shut his mouth! Apparently you still haven't!

  • Want some cheese with that whine(disguised as a rant)?
  • love how you call the Giants cheaters! I do believe you have your teams confused! It was the Patriots that cheated and still do in my opinion. By the way, I am not a Giants fan, just a football fan! And Brady has been arrogant ever since he became Pro and probably before! He and him alone are the reason I ALWAYS root for anyone playing them. They didn't deserve the win before and I will be rooting for them to lose again!
  • I agree with you 100% It kills me when these Boston fans say that no one should bring up the cheating thing. Ok, we will pretend it didnt happen...lol lol
  • I dont understand how they ever won by cheating... Can you break down all the plays that went our way or the games we won because of that.
  • What a clown, ooh mr. tough guy, Capt.Insano. Learn the game before you type long winded nonsense.
  • I don't care who you root for! I root for someone to have a fair game. But to use retard is offensive in my family. we don't use the term retard because it is a bad word first would you like honky whit bread or cracker? ok if you happen to be black let me not say the "N" word, get my drift? Think of what you say before you put to words your igdigation My 49ers lost but to correct you You hurt me deeply because you can't figure out that we allhave a place and you use retard too freely. Therefore I wish you luck with your one sided judgment.
  • lucky, lucky neither team had to face the saints
  • That was AWESOME! I can't believe somebody actually has that much....I don't know what to call it......built up inside them. Brother, that was amazing. Keep it up!
  • hey yu, fish brain.. listen to.. what comes out of mouth.. This is not a syfy, and, yu don't hv to be an astronout to u/stand.. IF A FOOTBALL FIELD IS NOT LIKE A WRESTLING RING DURING ANY GAME, WHAT IS..?? and, on FEB 05th RING BELONG TO HARD-WORKING, HARD-NOCKING "BIG G-GUYS", not to a "fragile pretty-boys"..!!
  • I am impressed that as a "pro" wrestler you know so many large words. Can't spell them correctly, but you know them. Sports entertainment? If that is your qualifier for being a badass, then I guess Hornswaggle is the toughest guy out there. Your arguement like your career choice are a joke. Did you leave the caps lock on so you would not have the stress of having to think about where capitals went.
  • Sounds like MAXX tried playing Football in High school & Took 1 too many hits..............LOL
  • DUDE, YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MEDICATION. TELL YOUR PATRIOTS TO BRING PLENTY OF TAMPONS TO THE SUPERBOWL, THEY WILL NEED THEM AFTER THE BEATING THEY ARE GOING TO GET. PEACE OUT MOFO.
  • Steriods make you crazy..lol
  • news flash genius, #15 did go out of bounds, he was pushed, but, you all caps jerk, he was not the first player to touch the ball !! Williams was !! that makes it legal for anybody to touch it from that point on. you are completely incapable of watching anything objectively, must be the roids. mr proffesional fake sport wrestler. boo hoo the pats lost. score more than 14 pts in the SB and maybe you win, eh?
  • the 49 ers are a much better team then the giants,49ers lost yes.but are a much better team then the giants,i mitake is all it took for the 9ers to lose.brady is just having fun,people put everything under a microscope.yes i am and always will be a 49er fan.every since the greastest q.back came to s.f. joe montana.hope the giants loss
  • Thank you I,ve been a 9er fan from the time I could walk, thats 50 years.Got to love the 9ers! and yes Brady whines and the Pat's suck go giants.I too loved Joe, from noter dame when we rooted for him and mom said who the hells montana? I said just the best mom watch for the name in the superbowl! he was there alot and mom watched. Best reciever? Jerry rice and never forget Ronny lott!
  • Learn how to spell old timer...
  • DOESNT THE BETTER TEAM ALWAYS WIN ???? GET A LIFE SMOKEY.
  • I lived in NE for 12 years and If you really want to know what arrogant is just drive on 95 into boston. Most of the sport fans are johnny come lately pats fans , you couldnt give away a ticket to the pats before a former giants coach taught them how to play. I have seen them leave a stanley cup finals game when the bruins go down 2 goals booing on the way out. No Class No class at all. It shows in the comments here calling ELI a retardand such. Why dont you wait for the game and keep a pad and crayon handy so you wont forget the excuses as they happen. If anything the giants win even with the Refs and the NFL rooting for your sweet tommy and his short bus haircut. YOU live in the most miserable part of the country and you are by far the dumbest people I have met as a gtoup in all my travels. Good luck your gonna need it, yeah and keep that crayon handy
  • This is coming form a New York fan. Must be an April Fool's joke, right? You just described the prototypical NY fan! Good job.

  • you're full of Sh*t, first of all route 95 does not go "into" Boston. Boston hass the most educated sports fans and everyone in the media says that all of the time. You lie because You don't even have Your interstates correct and probably never been here. Nice try bitch
  • Seriously? New Englanders have no class because they use the word retard, but you, apparently have class while commenting on "sweet tommy and his short bus haircut"? And check your spelling before calling anyone the dumb.
  • Bob on it.
  • It will be a good game. The Giants front should put pressure on Brady and the Patriots will will pick up yards throwing underneath the coverage. Both running games are similar but look for the Giants backs to get chunks of yards in the second half. Eli will throw at will against the Patriots secondary. How are they going to cover those 3 recivers? Giants take home the trophy.
  • I dont know what game you were watching but all i saw was the NFL trying to get a east west superbowl, Matthews hit Rli 3 or 4 steps after he let go of the ball , but then i see some phantom calls that even Giant haters like troy Akimen didnt beliebe , put down the ceack pipe and watch the game
  • By the way, why are they posting a story that is 4 years old?
  • I root for the giants, because The patriots suck. Brady is a whiner. And ok I've seen suberbowls lost on the ref calls lets make it a fair deal for once, and I'll hope Brady eats his words and chuckles;does his arrogance know no bounds?
  • I guess you cant c rap on NE as they blanked my post NE fans are arrogant and even beating them fair and square wont shut them up . There are always some dopes who justt dont get it. Always an excuse always some reason as soon as you arent the reigning kings of the NFL anymore you wont be able to give away a PATS ticket just like it was way back when
  • And MAXX that little light over on the right means you should press the caps lock button
  • You want to talk about luck? Let's go all the way back to the tuck rul game, vs. raiders, how many time has that been called since then and on whom? brady wins at least 2 sb's thanks to his kicker, should have lost vs. rams, ect...ect...ect... brady is overated, if you want to talk about whats good about the pats. lets talk about the coach, and the o-line, which is unbeleievable! I mean my grandma could throw as good as brady if she had the time he has. There should be a new stat. in the nfl, time allowed in the pocket, brady would be at the top in the last ten yrs, i guarantee it, So talk about luck, lets look at last week vs. ravens, no way pats. should have won that game. How in the world is the catch by te for ravens not reviewed? Ravens got robbed, the pats. are the luckiest team ever. But thank god there playing the giants again, because they can win, i hope the arrogant players and fans for the pats, keep running their mouths to motivate the giants even more.
  • What a loser, this guy creates a screen name called Tom Brady Cries...Sounds like You may be little infatuated with this guy? Or maybe jealous? Enough said...BTW who got that kicker in a position to kick those last second field goals? Thats right Tom Brady...You Homo
  • has anyone even thought of the fact the patriots didnt beat a winning team all regular season.LMAO.and they were handed the game last week.the giants are battle tested and a much better team.GO GIANTS!!!!!!
  • So what's your point? what does the regular schedule games have to do with the superbowl. I believe this game, like all games, will come down to matchups, execution, turnovers, etc. Not who played who in September. LMAO? what are you 12 years old?
  • I hear the Pats will be wearing Washington Redskin uni's for the SB. A guaranteed win!
  • From New Jersey . Have a summer home in Boothbay, Maine. Never have I come across so Many " CCCCHHHOOOWWWDDDAAA & P#SS Clam " heads that live & die over the BLOWSOX & The PATRIS#CKS . Get a life already .
  • Keep Jersey freaks out of Maine. Too much dog dump for brains.
  • HAHAHAHAAAA!!! its a fu@@in game be real. why dont some of you ....big mouths put your money where your mouth is meet in a packing lot them see whos big mouth swings...ITS A GAME SHOW YOUR KIDS HOW TO BE A BAD SPORT DID YOU SEE THAT **** ON THE NET ABOUT KIDS BAWLING ABOUT A LOSS COME ON MAN! GROW UP
  • Wow, BostonTeaParty, I thought it would take longer than it did to get a response from the arrogant pats. fans i talked about and you proved it for me, i guess the truth hurts. if you didnt like my comments I understand, but prove me wrong with some facts! tell me the the last time the tuck rule was called in a game?Tell me that wasnt a td by the ravens by the te, Tell me the pats. havent been the luckiest team the last 10yrs. in the nfl, ill admit there a good team, but they always seem to get those quirky breaks. Id be nervous too, beacause the giants seem to be one of the only teams to be able to overcome the unbelievable luck the pats. seem to have, it cant last forever, can it?lol!Lastly, you called me a homo, I didnt speak that way to the pats. fans in general but since you bring it up, when is brady going to come out of the closet?
  • What does everyone think about having a new stat in the nfl, TIP, or time allowed in pocket. because this is the main reason for the pats. sucess. the o-line is awesome as much as I hate to say it.Im just sick of hearing how great brady is, he is very good, but the time he has has been the reason for his sucess. If that was him playing the 49rs last week, he would have been crying the whole game.lol, this guy as well as most of the team has never known adversity. Its got to happen sooner or later, how about a Giants blowout in the sb?
  • I consider myself a hardcore Jets fan and it really is appauling what I read here. Yes unfortunately I read them all. can't believe all the senseless vitriol many of you haters have for a ... well I hate to say it ... great quarterback. In every interview I have ever seen of Brady he has always come across humble. So for a Quarterback that has broken so many records as he has that's equally impressive. Most of you that call Brady a cheater simply don't know professional football and how it has been played. I worked for the jets for many years and guess what ... sshhh looking over right shoulder .... we cheated too. Every team since the 80's filmed the opposition. During practices, during the game... always. So just get over that. The Patriots were simply given up by a traitor whom did nothing for my Jets but but bring this stain upon them as well. But back to Brady. I would trade him for Sanchez any day. He's impressiive on the field, has a strong work ethic and deserves to be arrogant yet chooses not to be.
  • BostonTeaParty must be googling tuck rule and hasent found anything other than pats.vs.raiders lol!
  • I love it. The 'we're the best defense in the world' loudmouths can't wait to get at Pretty Boy Brady who by the way has won THREE Super Bowls and,save for a miraculous will never happen again reception, would have had FOUR. I would HOPE they have bravado otherwise they would be *******. As for their 'we can't wait' predictions, if they are so great, how come they lost 7 games ? C'mon Jets, oops I mean Giants 'can't wait guys' you'll have your chance soon enough but in the meantime be prepared to eat crow and no excuses afyter the game...PLEASE !
  • This is seriously stupid. This is not only a non issue but its a non issue. Giants defense would have made anything reason to want to take his head off. The fact that he was smiling at all pissed them off. Defensive players are that way period. All the other crap about hating teams and calling teams cheaters is ridiculous. If it's not called by the refs than it's fair no matter who does the so called "cheating". Finally, Tom Brady is one of the most confident quarterbacks in the game. And the reason he spends so much time in the pocket is because he's so freakin relaxed it's ridiculous. Nothing and noone scares him. He doesn't flee the pocket like so many quarterbacks running from the gigantic linebackers. He's convinced that the extra .01 seconds he has in the pocket will be the difference between and completion and an incompletion. And he's right. And finally, "Pretty Boy" is usually used when people are wimpy or afraid to take a hit. Show me one quarterback in the NFL that shows more composure when a linebacker is running full speed at them. There isn't one. And finally, finally, Brady shows respect to them. He's not saying that it's crazy that Plax thinks he's going to win, or that they'll only score 17 points, he's simply laughing because he believes he's going to revenge his last game where he played horribly. If someone interviewed my quarterback and he didn't laugh at someone saying he'd only score 17 points, he'd be fired before Sunday and I'd play the back up! Let's be intelligent and stop being angry! It's pointless, like gossip about Demi Moore. Please...
  • It doesnt hurt that he has all day to throw, a goole search revealed the tuck rule being called only twice, TWO TIMES, AND YES SISSY BOY BRADY WAS THE FIRST,lol! the luckiest team of the decade.
  • Why come nobuddy ken reed oar right end yous collect dickshun wend day trie two maeke the poynt abowth da subgecked?! Greyg Braedee is kewt end a gud fotbull gie!..
