Their coach has been there before. It is hard to say. We understand what it is like to play in the playoffs. It goes up another level. The speed of the game will go up faster, the intensity, the magnitude of each play becomes greater. Our preparation this week has to indicate that. It is hard to say, but there is enough experience over there to negate any advantage that we would have.
Not sure I would call that a 'joke' exactly - its more like Cowher isnt even listening to what he is being asked.
Lets face it - the playoffs is not the time to learn anything constructive from a coach.
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.
