"...Defensive end <FONT color=#015fb6>Osi Umenyiora</FONT> (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Osi+Umenyiora) remembers that his squad played “angry” in Super Bowl XLII, that the Giants felt slighted by an undefeated New England team and a world that viewed the championship game as Patriot coronation instead of competition.</P>

That gave the Giants fuel, and Big Blue is doing its best to maintain that competitive fire, even as fans, analysts and Giant opponents hop on the bandwagon. Umenyiora pointed out that the Giants are still slight underdogs in this game.

“Typical Patriot fashion,” he said as soon as New England’s niceties were mentioned. “They give compliments to everyone they play.”</P>

We can compliment them as we whip their tails

most teams compliment the other team
especially during the playoffs and SB.

it's just professional sports/football etiquette .

listen to Coughlin , same shyte.
always complimentary towards the opponent.

only "Brontosaurus Rex" and a few other
miscreants show disrespect and lack of praise.

basically shut the F up and play.

That ****y BS didn't work when they face Ray Ray and the B-more squad, it sure as hell won't fly against this Pats team.

Do as Coughlin instructs.

Practice, Mentally prepare, study film, take notes, THINK, prep, focus and then execute.

finish. 60 minutes.

no dumb emotional-caused penalties.

protect your QB, Tackles and Guard.

Run your full route to completion, get separation, make plays Receivers

yadda, yadda, yadda

just. finish.
