Default Patriots on guarantee (link)

Text size ? + Pats on guarantee
Link|Comments (0) By Mike Reiss, Globe Staff December 6, 07 11:18 AM
FOXBOROUGH -- One of the main themes in the Gillette Stadium locker room today was Steelers safety Anthony Smith's guarantee of a win.

"I don't know if we've ever come out and predicted victory or anything, and we've won a lot of games," quarterback Tom Brady said. "Whether you predict it or not, you've got to show up on Sunday."

Said safety Rodney Harrison: "The game is won and lost between the lines, not in the media. We've been in this situation before, where guys are talking. It just doesn't matter what you say, it's what you do."

Added outside linebacker Mike Vrabel: "If you went back and documented every time someone called their own shot, I mean, what are the chances? You're going to win or you're going to lose. Either way I don't think that prediction will have much bearing on the outcome."

Elsewhere, fullback Heath Evans said that Smith's prediction would be proven correct if the Patriots don't improve their performance, while linebacker Chad Brown acknowledged the comments could be used as motivation.

Linebacker Junior Seau also commented, noting that such a guarantee would never come from the Patriots. He was asked if there is such a thing as bulletin-board material for teams.

"There definitely is," Seau said. "Obviously, there is obviously a build-up before the game and that's the way this started. There is going to be talk every week. We're not going to pay attention to that. We're going to try to do what we do every week, which is work. Hopefully that will be good enough come Sunday. Come Sunday, all the talk will be between the white lines. It always is."

Who would have thought it - replies from the Pats' players that show a teenie bit of class. I guess their heads have deflated a bit in recent weeks.

That bullentin board material is crap and completely overrated. It comes down to execution and nothing more.

I really hate the media blowing every little thing out of proportion all the time.

When is the last time a team guaranteed a win and actually won?

He's right, they are the winningest team this decade and not once have they EVER guaranteed a win.

Brady said it best.............
"I don't know if we've ever come out and predicted victory or anything, and we've won a lot of games," quarterback Tom Brady said. "Whether you predict it or not, you've got to show up on Sunday."


Who the heck is Smith anyhow? Something tells me his statline won't register much.

I don't know... As I recall, our good friend Joey Porter came out and guaranteed a win several times and put his money where his mouth was that week. All the same, I wish that Smith didn't do this... it is just something stupid for the media to glom on to and to knob-slob the Patsies over...

Go out and play the new brand of Steeler Football, and we will make it competitive...(read WIN)
