Giants put first Super Bowl non-story story to bed

AP

NFL players are always looking for a motivational edge. They are prone to manufacturing disrespect from opponents or the media even when it really doesn’t exist.

And yet the Giants still didn’t bite when presented with Tom Brady’s words from Sunday’s rally at Gillete Stadium.

We wrote that Brady’s words were completely innocuous on Sunday, and the Giants agreed with the sentiment. Mathias Kiwanuka said it wasn’t “legitimate” trash talk.

“It was just a pep rally,” defensive lineman Justin Tuck said via the New York Daily News.

Thank you, Justin.

  1. I hope people see this. The media trying to start a war of words really out of nothing. Great job Giants. Keep this up, and also Great job Patriots. It would be great for BOTH teams to remain composed during this time and focus solely on preparation.

  2. The Giants fans are far too intelligent to get sucked into this NY media fabrication. But if it were the Jets their fans would be foaming at the mouth and performing human sacrifice rituals.

  3. The New York media is ridiculous. What the hell is the quarterback supposed to say to 25,000 fans who show up to wish the team luck? Brady handled himself like a professional and Kiwanuka did as well.

  4. “The Giants fans are far too intelligent to get sucked into this NY media fabrication. But if it were the Jets their fans would be foaming at the mouth and performing human sacrifice rituals.”

    I thought that’s what happened to fans of teams playing the Jets? Getting all worked up over some stupid Rex Ryan quote. BTW, don’t kid yourself, Giant fans are no smarter than any other team’s fans.

  5. This all seems familiar

    After all, who can ever forget Joe Namath making that bold, historic, yet brash prediction – “Hopefully we will win the Super Bowl”

  6. that’s it simpletons, keep your anti east coast new york hatred coming. so refreshing to see the love from usa in this post-9/11 world. you ALL wish you could be new york – the greatest city on earth. inarguable point. cannot be debated.

    keep that hate coming, simpletons….

  7. why is this even a story. did you expect him to say “thanks for showing up! We hope to have the same showing when the giants beat us in the superbowl next week.” I hate the media.

  8. using the same pft tactics you’ve been using the last several weeks, i’m surprised the headline to this article wasn’t…”kiwanuka and tuck say brady doesn’t even know how to talk smack”…

  9. Smart on Tuck’s & Kiwanuka’s parts to downplay this. After all Strahan said they would stomp the Pats out at their pep rally 4 yrs ago and a lot of the NYG players wore black suits to prepare for the Pats’ funeral last time as well. Plax then predicted how many points his defense would hold the Pats to. Obviously, the NYG doing all those potentially rilesome things didn’t help the Pats win.
