…or New Jersey. Hell, let’s just call them links from the Meadowlands, and we’ll leave it at that. Anyway, there aren’t a whole lot of traditional pregame breakdowns in the New York/New Jersey papers so far, but here’s what we’ve seen over the last 24 hours or so: The Asbury Park-Press has the Giants saying they are not getting caught up in any rematch talk. New York linebacker Antonio Pierce tells the New York Daily News (scroll down) that if the Patriots do any trash talking this time around — like they apparently did in Super Bowl XLII — he’ll be laughing at them. You’ve got to scroll down a long ways, but this report from WNYT.com has Tom Coughlin saying playing the Patriots in the fourth preseason game is no big deal for New York. NFL.com has a faily vanilla look at a few things to look for for both teams. The Canadian Press has a good pregame breakdown, complete with a quote from Pierce calling the fourth preseason game “a waste.” And if you’re laying money on this one, check out this site here.
We’ll try and track down some more later on Thursday.
