    personally I think it's a matter of perception. Oppsoing teams come and try to talk the talk with the patriots and intimidate them.

    well the Pats have to deal with it week in week out and they don't back down. Harrison has always been like this. But now you see the whole team getting nasty because teams are testing them.

    Tom Jackson has always disliked the Patriots. He hasn't had a good thing to say about the team right from the start of the season.

    Who cares about Tom Jackson?

    Every time Chris Berman speaks about the Patriots , you could see Tom Jackson cringe.. He just hates the Patriots so much it comes out more and more .. Jackson should just go away..

    I just don't understand what that means.

    Does it mean that they like to eat chips?

    i'm really lost here. I like chips too. Especially with sandwiches. When i was little i would eat a cheese pita sandwich with pickles and cool ranch doritos.

    Does that mean i'm chippy too?

    Thanks.... I......guess.......

    That would make you "chipper".

    "chippy" happens when you get cut off in the beer line.

    In football, a "chippy" team is a team prone to hit after the whistle, start fights and take cheap shots...more like the Titans or Ravens. Definitely not the Pats.

    Re: Tom Jackson:"Patriots are chippy"

    Jackson relives the embarrassment of "the team has quit on its coach" comment after that Buffalo loss. So he looks to demean the Pats or undercongratulate them to psychologically soothe himself.

    Surprised anyone listens to this guy. He, Marshall Faulk, Shannon Sharpe, and Steve Young are in a unique category of ex-jocks to whom I pay zero attention. They are dead to me.

    You know what the comment means? Nothing. Teams have been going after the Pats all season and some Pats players have had enough of it.

    I don't know if you have watched the Celtics this year but the same thing is happening to them. The Celtics haven't fought back.......yet.

    I agree Cleve...but Shannon Sharpe actually gave us our props on the NFL pregame show this week. I was very surprised. :eek:

    Re: Tom Jackson:"Patriots are chippy"

    In an interview about his home life, Tom Jackson got chippy.

    How would you describe the following . . .

    Your daughter? "Lippy."

    Your son? "Hippie"

    Your wife's sex drive? "Skippy."

    No, really? "Nippy."

    How often? "Zippy."

    I don't know how you put Steve Young in with those guys. Steve's a smart guy who tries to put a considered opinion out there. The other two are neuron-challenged. OT, but it was nice to see Tony Gonzalez pass Shannon no-so-Sharpe on Sunday for most catches ever by a TE.

    Tom Jackson is Berman's longtime sidekick. I'd better leave it at that.

    Re: Tom Jackson:"Patriots are chippy"

    The only reason to watch ESPN's Sunday show is comic relief. Watching the looks on the other panelists faces when the P word invariably comes up and they all immediately glance in Jackson's direction. There is this very slight underlying vibe as well though, like they are all half expecting him to go postal. Keyshawn is really having some fun with it. By the end of their segment Jackson usually looks like he's just survived another weekly rectal exam with a roto rooter.

    Tom Jackson is an idiot who hates Belichick and is despised by Belichick. He came up with revelation that Belichick lost control of the team when he cut Milloy. A total zero.

    I dont mind Jackson. Yeah, he has that slant but I dont mind him. Marshall Faulk is stomach-churning. Seriously, I have never seen one of these ex-players-turn-announcers hold such a grudge. He will be bitter about that SB loss until he dies.

    Re: Tom Jackson:"Patriots are chippy"

    OK, fair enough, I'll explain. Young appears very uncomfortable any time he's discussing New England, and was very critical when spygate unfolded. His reaction at the time was over the top. Jealousy? I believe he has Marshall Faulk disease in that while he was a great HOF QB, he appears very uncomfortable in any discussion about Brady and the Pats. Now, like many media talking heads of late, he's had to reluctantly acknowledge the extraordinary season the Pats have had, but it's like he's doing so while undergoing a root canal. His unabashed criticism in the beginning of the season outed him, and I'm just not seeing an objective ex-jock whose comfortable enough in his own skin to give credit to another playing his position. It's almost like it's a zero-sum game to Steve, where when another gets credit, he feels it reduces his importance some.

    As for Shannon, yes, he too has jumped on the Pats bandwagon of complimentary media heads. What choice does he have, unless he wants to appear to be a complete fool? But even more so, I just don't hear him adding any high-quality analysis to the broadcast. He's excellent at stating the obvious. And by the way, great TV voice and diction!

    My thought: So what if they're chippy. This isn't Pop Warner. You need to have a little edge to you and I don't think anyone can say our team doesn't have a little edge to them.
