    Was just watching Jay Feeley and Skip on 1st and 10, and they were talking about Plax's comments.

    They mentioned 3 years ago, the Eagles were already planning a victory parade before the Super Bowl(or something like that), and BB used it as motivation.

    Aside from FredEx's comments calling out the Pats' secondary, what else did the Eagles do that fueled the fire?

    I'm sure TO had a thing or two to say.

    Although, it doesn't really matter what they do or don't say. It is BB's job to get the players fired up for the game. Trash talking only makes BB's job easier. He'd still do it, talk or no talk.

    I wish the Globe hadn't run a story about the planning for the Pats' victory parade.

    oh... i'm sure this wil sink the pats... i'm sure BB planned the parade or ordered it.

    this is the most ridiculous concoction in football. i think it has no bearing on game day. you are not going to play any harder. the only bearing it might have is in preparation. it may make the team more focused in preparing

    Well, clearly BB thinks that stuff works.

    The stuff on the 3 games to glory CD is hilarious. It's basically BB addressing the team in the hotel before the game. He's very deadpan, and he tells the team, "I just thought you might like to know about the parade being planned in Philadelphia," and then he goes into detail about the route that the parade will take. "You might like to know that at 11:15, the vehicles carrying the players will pass by the Liberty Bell" or something like that.

    Hard to believe he would have gone to that trouble if he didn't think it might be at least a little bit effective.

    Then again, it's not like the Patriots came out and did very much in the first 20 minutes of the game anyway.

    I think it helps focus during the week, but if you can't put out 100% DURING the game and you need bulletin board material then as player you got issues.

    The difference was (and the reason he could use it as he did) we were the defending champs returning for back to back Superbowls. The Eagles had never won a damn thing, and their plans went beyond the kind of offhanded comments Mumbles made. The Eagles FO and local pols were planning the minute details of a parade. Eagles fans were also heavily in attendance (the insufferable Fly Eagles Fly was the song of the day) and the media was fairly fauning over Donovan and TO. I remember think less of Jaws after that, he went straight homer for his Iggles and it was nonsense. Bill used that little parade gem as the opening to his pre game comments. I believe that one ended with Do your job, and if you do tonight you will be champions again.

    Wow. What a total football moron Belichick must be. That was his entire pre-game speech. He don't know squat about motivating players, I guess.

    So this will stop the "best team ever" from playing Patriots Football?

    What a farce.

    Who cares who plans what? The better team that day is going to win.

    That's an understatement. Even as a Pats fan I was squirming uncomfortably as the Eagles huddled up and sauntered to the line from the 5 minute point to the end. That's not professional football.

    The worse was the last possession, when they called a time out (or was it the two-minute warning?), ran one play, and then huddled up again. They were down at the end of the game, time running out, backed up deep, and they only called one play during the time out? That and throwing 1-yard passes in the middle of the field, talk about mismanagement.

    I had the pleasure of watching SB 39 in a room full of Eagles fans who were screaming at Reid and McPuke to hurry up. Was it Patriot Reign that told of an anecdote that when the Pats were up by ten and Eagles were taking it slow, supposedly BB asked Charlie, " we're up by ten right?" because he couldn't believe that they were wasting some much time?

    Every city (not team, city) plans a victory parade ahead of time because the man power needed to pull it off requires advanced planning. We do it too. Belichick was just wise enough to use it as motivation. You think NYC hasn't laid out the plans for a parade if the Giants win? Of course they have.
