    Now, I'm not saying that you can't believe what he said is true. Everyone has a right to their opinions, though, it's one level of stupid to actually think something like that is true. However, it's chartering previously unknown depths of human stupidity to put air behind those inner thoughts during the week when you're playing the Patriots.

    Edit: The same goes for Son of Bum and his recent backtracking.

    Really think the "don't want to piss off any Patriots because they will crush us" thing is WAY overplayed. I really don't think what anyone is going to say at this point is going to fire up the Pats any more than they are already. Lets relax a bit. The Patriots are not the Hulk...the angier they get the stronger they get.

    LOL! Thanks, Marcus. Gotta love the Bulletin Board material. Even though it's stupid and shouldn't help motivate a team of professionals, it always seem to fuel the fire. Pats in a romp and F off to Marcus.

    Marcus Spears didn't really say anything you guys haven't been hearing for weeks. Everyones been saying this, and most players have been coming out calling you dirty. I imagine in order for something to be bulletin board material and causes motivation it needs to be fresh.

    I kind of wish someone would trash talk, I don't think the patriots have the mental fortitude to take it.

    Right. Because the Patriots haven't dealt with that and kicked its ass OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER for almost a decade. Where do you come up with this stuff? Do you follow football?

    You vastly underestimate how much this stuff resonates in locker rooms. Almost to a man/woman, reporters who cover this team will tell you that this sort of thing gives the Pats just that much more motivation to go out and smash a team in the mouth.

    What gets annoying is the fans who constantly downplay bulletin board material as though it were some meaningless thing in which only fans partake. That simply isn't true.

    Agreed. As I said upthread, we KNOW it "shouldn't" make a difference, especially considering these are "professionals" who have plenty of "motivation" without "silly things" like "trash-talk" and "bulletin-board material."

    Well, fellas, "shouldn't" is irrelevant. What's relevant is "does." As in it DOES affect the team. DOES raise the level of motivation. It doesn't really matter if people think it's silly - the bottom line is, the Pats have shown COUNTLESS times that they take some advantage of the "disrespect" or whatever, and I assume they will do the same thing here. Pile those chips up on your shoulders, Rodney and Co. Works every time. EVERY. TIME.

    Whats up with you guys and the 5 year and 6 year were so amazing come backs. Seriously, I can go on and talk about former glory years...

    Yes, I follow football more than some baseball/football local homer who only follows their team when its winning. Only pathetic teams need bulletin board material week in and week out to come out on Sunday/Monday and perform. Look at those weak dolphins trying to guarantee wins and talk trash every week, yet they do nothing. They are trying motivational tactics that end up failing. Keep it in the lockerroom....

    Bulletin board material is a plus to keep your team motivated when EASY teams are coming up. You don't really need bulletin board material when playing 5-0 teams. The motivation for playing those teams comes from the need to prove yourself on the public stage.

    But what do I know about football...

    Do you follow the Patriots? Do you have any idea the asinine lengths to which their locker room goes to manufacture disrespect and chips on their shoulders? Obviously you don't. We're talking from experience here. Marcus Spears comments - as ridiculous as this sounds - will MAKE A DIFFERENCE to this team. It will add to their being pissed off. Trust us. It may be silly or childish, but - wait for it... - it is what it is.

    QFT.

    Just par for the course around here. Who can argue with the results?

    Oh come on-Spears was going through an IF scenerio-if Pats players get offended by this, then they really must have thin skins.

    THEY DO. And it helps them. Sorry. It might be stupid and childish but them's the facts and they get a lot out of having thin skins.

    Ive been only watching the 2007 Patriots for 3 weeks, studying you as our game gets closer. You are a good team who seems to get bored playing weaker teams as you progress throughout the season. If your coaches and leaders don't create ways to keep your team motivated when playing those lesser teams you might end up with a loss.

    If you think the cowboys are a lesser team and you need material to keep yourself motivated, your coaches and players are strongly mistaken.

    I'm out for tonight, will bookmark till after Sundays game. I usually surf opposing forums, but don't rub it in their faces after we win because of karma. :bricks:

    Chances are we won't see you guys for 4 years after this week, hope it turns out to be an amazing game.

    Well-especially considering Dallas has gotten alot of hatred from the media(from national all the way down to local), I guess we can call it a draw.;)

    You mean the "we would beat the Patriots 9 out of 10 times" LT? The same LT who said that leading up to the week 2 game?

    Eh, I don't know. We'll see. I think the Pats came out a little flat vs. the Browns, but I also think Romeo Crennel did a nice job taking Moss away, defensing Brady in general - I mean we still put up big points and won handily, but it wasn't necessarily JUST the Pats being bored.

    And the Pats don't look for disrespect JUST against bad teams, and I'm sure they don't overlook the Cowboys. Most of us here think the Patriots will win, but I think we all consider Dallas a very good challenge. The thing is, the Pats LIKE being dissed to the point that they exaggerate at times and create bulletin board material to then "respond" to.

    Thanks for your contributions, it's been good to hear a different P.O.V. You have a good, solid team.
