    There'll be no shortage of Belicheat, Spygate and Hateriots talk coming from the likes of Gary Myers and Steve Serby this week. 2 weeks of New York hacks doing what they do best.

    Should be plenty of material to keep the team unified and motivated. Not that they need anymore motivation than what the game itself provides but it never hurts.

    Any bets who'll be the first to take their shot? I'll say Serby.

    I'm just happy we'll be spared all the hype of football Jesus Favre vs football anti-Christ Belichick.

    Well that didn't take long, and the winner is Filip Bondy of the Daily News. Some highlights from his article today.



    New England gets down and dirty to win AFC championship

    FOXBOROUGH - If you want to hate the Patriots - and who doesn't? - then here was yet another reason to gnash your teeth and curse the scoreboard. The Pats won ugly Sunday, and maybe a little dirty. They put up the winning points in the AFC Championship Game during the second quarter, the turning point of the game, on a defensive play that looked very much like an illegal leg whip by outside linebacker Mike Vrabel.


    And so now you have your Super Bowl XLII villains set in place, ready to rumble - and, if necessary, to cheat just a bit, 13 days from now

    Vrable did get away with a leg whip/trip on Rivers.

    Definitely a trip more than a whip but I wouldn't classify it as cheating as Bondy did. If that's the case then every team in the NFL cheats when there's a missed call.

    No way! I'm appalled that Vrabel didn't tell the refs that he made an illegal play. That's disgraceful! What a bunch of cheaters.

    It didn't seem intentional to me... Vrabel was blocked to the ground and happened to be in the way of Rivers' follow through. Is it still a penalty if it's not intentional?
