    I need to know.

    Are you also going out of your skull in anticipation of this game?

    I don't go more than five minutes without thinking about it. And this has nothing to do with confidence level as I am extremely confident. I just can't wait for this game to happen and it's WAY BEYOND NORMAL.

    Tales of Pats obsession before this AFC Chhamp game go in this thread.

    I am really forward to Sunday, but not losing my mind.

    I feel pretty good about out prospects this week. Especially after reading this tidbit from Reiss:

    BB lauds Slater, says it's been 'good week' - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston


    I like it when the coach says they have put in a good week of prep. Brady always talks about how important practice is, BB is not an easy taskmaster. If BB is happy I am feeling good.

    I don't have a mind to lose in the first place, so advantage me :D

    Sunday 6:30 is a bit of a long wait, but I have a team I coach on Sundays 3:30 to 5:00 and that makes time fly by. When it's over, I'll catch up on the SF @ Atlanta game and it will be go time.

    If you think you're going crazy now, if the Pats win, you have an additional 2 weeks to go crazy.

    Hah -- I was thinking the same thing. Then I just decided, well ... better than having nothing (football wise) to go crazy over.

    Yep. The next two weeks would be the ultimate high class problem.

    But first things first.

    I laughed when i read that. does that mean Matt has found the leak in the bucket so no more ninety yard returns?

    Could be he responds well to a pat on the back. BB is a smart man.

    I thought they might add someone from the practice squad. They have spots, no? couple good special teamers there.

    Definitely. I've already got that jiggy feeling that I usually get a few hours before game time during the regular season.

    I'm going to hit the gym this afternoon and play some old dude basketball. I already know who I want to guard - this big hairy guy who we think has some neurological problem because he feels no pain when we wail on him when he gets the ball in the post. Pounding away on his sweaty back and arms will definitely help get some of this anxiety out.

    Tomorrow is definitely a chain saw day. There are trees down in back that need to be reduced to sawdust and kindling.

    Sunday will be an eternity. I'm going to the Mall, the Temple, the Mosque and the Cathedral to worship all the gods in hopes of a Patriots victory.

    Somewhere along the way, I'm going to buy a bottle of Sweet Lucy - a sublime concoction of bourbon, peaches, oranges and apricots to stash in the cabinet away from the people coming by for the game.

    Good times.

    I just ran 3.5 miles, boys and girls. Listened to WEEI and 98.5 podcasts. Greg Bedard sounds soooooooo worried. He ALMOST gets me worried.

    I will be fine until Sunday morning. At around that time I will start to get the old constricted bowel thing going. Pumped and jacked. Good times!

    THIS (running) is how I keep myself sane during "the long wait." The morning of the game (as I always do the morning of ANY big Pats game) I will run...and the jitters melt away.

    Big games calls for big runs, so this Sunday I'm thinking it's a double-digit day.

    The nervousness really set in today. Until now I've been surprised at how calm I've been. Probably because I've been preoccupied with silly stuff like work.

    I also try to work off the anxiety with running and lifting.

    And then it comes back in the evenings so I have to get hammered. Just a little hammered.

    This. I do long slow runs on Sundays and have been building up all year. Last week I did 10 miles and probably will this Sunday also. No pregame nerves whatsoever.

    I am running my first half marathon in late February and fully intend on wearing my Patriot SB XLVII shirt while doing it.

    I've been losing my mind all week. At this rate I won't get any work done until after the Super Bowl.

    I am actually calm.... But, I know that I will be losing it on Sunday if the game is a close one.... Every 3rd down will be a heart-pounding, nail-biting, torture-fest....

    My Pats obsession has reached new heights this year. It's getting bad. I draw up plays and fake stat summaries. Constantly listening to sports radio and reloading the message boards. I'm totally obsessed and there's nothing I can do about it. Thank god it's a three day weekend; win or lose I'm going to need time to decompress before going back to work and at least pretending to be invested.

    Little worried Pats fans don't seem worried. This will be a 15-round slugfest. I'm more worried than excited...cautiously optimistic, hope we win, but will pull out all my superstitions.

    Here is the Inside the NFL game summary from last year's AFCCG vs BAL.

    It is about 9 minutes long, but is a must watch for those who would like to re-live the moment.

    There are also many good sound bites from both teams/players, and it is set up in the traditional "NFL films presents" vein, which is always high quality:
