Well I hope you are right about Ben - its always good to see a 2 good teams face off with all their star players injury-free.
Interesting point about Bradshaw - nice piece of psychology he used there - I can see how that would work and get his team rallying around him.
Its certainly a clash of the Giants on Monday - heres to a good game.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
