    Tom Brady looked into the TV cameras, smiled and gave some advice to the coach whose defense leads the NFL in throwing quarterbacks to the ground.

    As a matter of self-preservation, Brady would rather not see Osi Umenyiora, Michael Strahan and Justin Tuck charging at him. Besides, the Giants might as well rest their top players because they're locked into their first-round playoff game anyway.

    So Brady stood at his locker and delivered his message: "Coach Coughlin, if you're listening, definitely rest those guys."

    The answer will come Saturday night when the New England Patriots can become the first team to finish a regular season 16-0 when they play New York at the Meadowlands.

    "Well," said left tackle Matt Light, charged with protecting Brady's blind side, "maybe they'll take his advice."
    "I can give him the direct number to coach Coughlin if he wanted to call him," Strahan said. "Tom is a good guy, a good friend of mine, and I have all the respect in the world for him. With all the things that they have done this year, there is not a better guy who deserves it and not just on the football field, but off the football field.

    "His advice, I can't take it, I can direct him to the person who can help."

    they just ran it on the front page of the Philly Inquirer sports pages today (friday) and spun it as if he was serious... If you watch the video, you know he was kidding....but to just read it, gives it whole different meaning....

    Yeah, I've seen the replay of that over and over on ESPN... and Brady's comments were tongue in cheek. And Eli Manning replied with the same comment, in the same vein - laughing that it would definitely be an easier game if the starters were resting vs playing.

    Yahoo probably sat on the story until today since the game is tomorrow. No biggie.
