That's what the media does! They blow things out of proportion. They've been playing this harp since the Pats beat the Cowboys in week 6.

I certainly will not be watching that game on Saturday. Instead, I'll be watching the Pens and Sabres, then pop in a movie or something when it's over. I have boycotted every Pats game since they played Indy except when they played the Steelers, and that will continue until the season is over. I'd rather have dental surgery without any anesthetic.

well, id say the speculation was relevant back then. but now??? its a mad scramble for the biggest ratings take ever.

when the steelers played the pats, i could understand the hype of the last remaining chance to defeat the undefeated.

now theres hype of whether coughlin plays all his starters, and questions if he "owes" it to the league, fans, etc to try and win.

we all know thats not gonna happen. even if its a close game, the giants would still be going up against the refs (think polamalu intercepting peyton in the playoffs). i dont think any of the giants players wanna be part of a dog and pony show of pat players breaking records and running up scores.

and honestly, if both teams play their starters, the pats will win by 24. if both teams rested their starters, the patriots 2nd stringers would beat the giants 2nd stringers by 24.

it doesnt matter, and the media will spend all week trying to convince the non football die-hards that it does, despite pumping steelers/pats as "last chance" several weeks ago. the media (and nfl) is pushing hard to captivate the new fan and kinda forgetting about the long timers. understandable, but no less disgusting and boring.

the patriots have always been boring, which lead to their whole 'crying about a lack of respect' mantra. its ironic that in fielding one of the most explosive receiving units ever, they have still remained just as boring (maybe even more so, with their blow outs).

personally, i think the giants should just forfeit. the discussion of those ramifications would be much more entertaining than the current patriot discussion.

"history" (tainted) or not, i cant believe so much hubub is being made over a meaningless game, no more important than a preseason game, where everybody already knows the outcome.

the oversaturation is starting to get very irritating (none of the coverage bugged me during the season) but now its really over the top, and seems to be getting bigger than the sport itself.

whats funny, is its something most die hard fans are not rooting for, and will tune in with hopes of seeing them defeated.

its kinda like most americans probably wouldnt want to view a live electrocution or hanging but would probably tune in if it were osama bin laden being exocuted.

now of course, i'll be tuning in, but only because im a football junkie and would probably be watching if it were seattle vs. miami.
It's really a win win situation. As a NFL fan, you get to see history if they win. As a Steeler fan, if they lose, you get to see the pasties fall flat on their ass in front of a huge National audience.

Guess which one I'm rootin' for.

SOOOOOOOO, this means they'll reimburse all of us that are PAYING for the nfl network???? I see this as a freakin joke! I mean, there IS a reason why I pay for my nfl network, RIGHT?

On another note, could someone please tell me when the last time a "PERFECT SEASON" included getting caught cheating? Those two words, (perfect/cheating) don't belong in the same sentence. I give no credence to anything the pat's have done. Sorry, but once they got caught everything they've accomplished has just felt dirty!

Absolutely no interest in watching that game. It means absolutely nothing. I'll watch the Penguin game instead. I'm sure Sports Center will show the whole damn game the morning, afternoon and night afterwards....Zzzz....Zzzz....Zzzz.

I think it's high time that harp is busted into a million pieces.
