With all the hype over the weekend on the 'tape', I as a fan felt deflated on Sunday leading up to the game. The airwaves were filled with spygate claims again and it was upsetting to say the least that we as fans had to put up with this crap so close to the biggest game in franchise history. Somehow the joy I had all week went to feelings of disgust! Am I alone in this feeling - feeling deflated or disgusted on Sunday before the game? I am just wondering, do you think that if fans felt this way, that the players and even BB would have felt a bit worried or deflated themselves? True or untrue, do you think it mentally could have screwed with their heads? I know how disciplined this team is and how focused they are, but after a while there is only so much you can take. First you have the pressure of the 'perfect' season and on top of that you have 'spygate' resurfacing and looming over the team....was it all too much for this team to handle? Did it cause the team to come out flat? Again, it affected me as a fan so it would stand to reason that it could have had an affect on the team leading up to game time. It could be an excuse or something I am looking for to help me deal with the lose, but did the Senator have his way with the Pats? I want to say, NO, but everyone saw what I saw? We could not execute as we did in the previous 18 games, we could not finish it off as we had in the first 18 games, we were not the same team as we were in the first 18 games. Did the Senator give the Giants the greatest assist in sports history?
