The energy level is definitely starting to pick up here inside the University of Phoenix Stadium. (Maybe that has something to do with the sudden change in music–after all, “Horse With No Name” can only put you to sleep, as far as I’m concerned.)
More players are on the field going through workouts, including Tedy Bruschi, who came back out in his warmups after spending some time on the field horsing around with his kids. He got a huge ovation when he stepped on the field. Backup QB Matt Cassel was chatting with Fox Sports announcer Chris Myers on the field as other players–including special teams ace Kelley Washington–went through warmups. On the other side of the football, a handful of Giants are on the field in white T-shirts and red shorts. New York linebacker Antonio Pierce stepped on the field and got a big ovation from Giants’ fans.
Right now, I’m not able to discern a home-field edge for either team, but we’ll keep our ears open as more players hit the field for warmups.
