HUGE ovation for Brady

Well, I think we got an answer as to who might have the home-field edge. Tom Brady just came on the field for warmups (no Jay-Z, as they usually have for him at Gillette–they started playing Jay when some of the Giants came out, though….), and there was a big cheer for the quarterback, who came out, as usual, with the rest of the New England quarterbacks. Brady and the rest of the QBs are out there with the rest of the New England special teamers.
The Giants skill position players–led by Eli Manning–just came out to a loud ovation of their own. The energy level in the place is really starting to build.
You’ve probably gotten word on the inactives, so I won’t bore you with that info. We were all pulling for Troy Brown here in the press box, but, in truth, it’s not much of a shocker. Other than that (no Chad Jackson, Antwain Spann, Wesley Britt, Billy Yates, Stephen Spach and Santonio Thomas), no big surprises. I think no Spach means that the Patriots are pretty happy with the health of Kyle Brady and Ben Watson. (In addition, you always have guys like Ryan O’Callaghan who can fill in as emergency tight ends in a pinch….)
We’ll have at least one more post before the game starts.
