    Only kidding I am proud of the way the Patriots handled themselves. they realized that were outplayed and gave the appropiate responses, unlike so many of the teams that they beat. No whining just asbsorb it and move on nobody talking about dirty players just honest reflection about missed opportunity and the promise of next year. BTW they are 5-2 favorites for SB XLIII.

    And now for the other side of the story...

    "As they took field for that last drive — what may well go down as the most improbable and impressive series in the 42-year history of the Super Bowl — the Giants had reason to feel offended. The Patriots had been talking, inviting them to their after-parties, a celebration of their perfect 19-0 season. Amani Toomer, who has been with New York since 1996, would recall Richard Seymour telling him to go on home, that the Giants were done."

    Chargers are whinging again and you're their spokesperson...right? Is LdT all healed up for the Pro Bowl now? Maybe he can convince them that he isn't a *****.

    Sadly, trash talking is a way of life in sports. Jordan did it, A LOT! Larry Bird did it as well.

    Let's just get ready to try again next year.

    Apparently you have never played a competitive athletic game in your life. All's fair when the game is over you shake hands and move on. I'm pretty certain the Giants were not offering their sincere condolences to the Pats once they took the lead. So take this stupid insignificant story and just go away.

    It's not insignificant because it served as motivation for the Giants. The 19-0 book being advertised, copyrighting 19-0 before the game was played and being invited to 19-0 after-parties by the Pats during the game were not smart things to do.

    Again, WTF do you believe the Giants were saying. Motivation had absolutly nothing to do a Manning escape and Tyree's amazing catch. They were not giving up because they wanted to win the effen SB not to shut up Seymour!

    But the Giants front seven were on a mission and played out of their minds. Motivation had something to do with that. The Pats had perhaps the best offensive line in the league this year and the Giants tore it to shreds. That doesn't happen to an o-line that good when both teams are equally motivated. The Giants had something extra in the tank.

    it is insignificant but if the roles were reversed you would be all over the giants for opening up their mouths. for waking a sleeping giant. All year we have heard someone on another team saying something about the pats before or during the game, whether it was spicer, olshansky, smith, whoever and it the reaction was what a stupid thing to say or do. Now the tables are turned and its, oh everyone does this its insignificant. Well of course it is, but its a 2 way street.

    That is right, nobody on the Patriots said anything but congratulation to the Giants. You quoted a ridiculous article and trying to pretend that the Patriots were the only team trash talking on the field. I'll bet you that Osi, Pierce or Strahan never once apologized to Tom Brady for sacking him, I am pretty sure there were a few F-bombs tossed his way.

    Overall I'm pretty pleased with the way that Pats fans and Pats players have handled themselves following this big loss.

    It's good to know that even if we weren't the best team on the field we don't have guys like LT making insulting comments that make everything worse as opposed to better.

    We were 18-0 and we weren't the best team on the field on Sunday - and our players are man enough and mature enough to understand this.

    That just illustrates how childish guys like LT are when they make comments like that (and by the way - we're 3-0 since he made that comment, aren't we?)

    There's a difference between sacking a QB and making arrogant statements to your opponent when you think you have the game won but the game is not yet over. The Pats did the latter and paid the ultimate price in humiliation.

    There is something known as "hubris". I think, ultimately, the burden of being "perfect" is a heavy one to bear and some of it showed on the faces of the NE Patriots as they took the field...

    It doesn't matter...it's over, it's done with. Now, back to reality.

    I think the Pats will regroup, refocus and this time, they will focus on winning the big one, the one that matters. They will be back and this time, they'll get the job done.

    I was a little too tired of the media blowing up the achievements too much, even before they won the game that mattered...

    A few losses during the regular season wouldn't be that bad... the key is to do well in the playoffs and win the SB...

    Yeah I can't tell you how many times I've told guys on the battlefield stuff I'm ashamed of recalling later. Inviting someone to a party is christian compared to stuff I have heard and said. Unfortunately, 5% of the country isn't biased against the patriots, so stories like this tickle 95% of the country's fancy which means we're gonna see them. The good thing is, Brady will remember every single story and so will the rest of this team whose peak will last a few more years.

    Both sides trash talk. I'm sure Amani was jabbing all game about beating the Pats.

    Who gives a hoot.
