The last thing the Eagles needed was a little motivation and/or bulletin board material, so of course we should have expected the Giants to give it to them. The Eagles are riding a hot streak right now and may prove to be much tougher then people realize. Burress best bring his A game this Sunday because the Giants will certainly need it.That's right. There was no need for Plaxico to call out the Birds defense. I don't see how his talking could do anything but motivate Sheldon Brown, Lito Sheppard, Will James, B-Dawk, and company to step it up. After all, it was Burress who broke their backs in the Giants victory earlier in the season.
Next up with the talking was linebacker Antonio Pierce. He says he's a more complete linebacker than Trotter and Urlacher. I might even give him the advantage over Trotter if we're talking "complete," but I'd take Trotter on my squad for his intensity over Pierce. Brian Urlacher though? Please. He's likely the defensive player of the year. Somewhat surprisingly, our blogging colleagues up in New York are level headed about this as well.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. I understand that Antonio Pierce is the physical and vocal leader of the Giants defense but let's hold our horses. First of all the Giants should be focusing on the game Sunday and nothing else. Enough of the trash talking. Secondly, why even bring up [Brian] Urlacher's name?I know, I'm shocked too. Not all New Yorkers are loud mouths. Who knew? Let's just hope Trotter and company can knock the snot out of Burress and shut up the loud mouth Giants.
