The madness, it has begun
Hey all --
Sorry we've been MIA for a couple of days; we were catching up on a few things after our trip out West.
Anyway, we're back now and hunkered down for championship week. Now that we're down to the semifinals of the NFL tournament, the NFL network gets involved, so while we were in the locker room trying to scare up some information, there was a steady stream of players at the podium in the media workroom; Tom Brady is wrapping up now and conference calls with Indy's Bob Sanders and Tony Dungy will follow.
The noise factor inside the RCA Dome has been mentioned quite a bit today, and while it is no doubt difficult for the quarterback to communicate to the line and the rest of the offense at the line of scrimmage, but Brady is 10-0 in his career in domes, so it would seem that he has that aspect figured out.
True to form, no one would really address the Chargers' claims about the Patriots' actions after the game on Sunday. Yesterday, we caught wind of a video out of San Diego (click on the watch video link on the right) about the post-game hubub, and Philips Rivers is seen screeching at Ellis Hobbs, calling him "the sorriest corner in the league." Asked about it, Hobbs said he'd heard about it and would only say, "We're on the AFC Championship."
Of course, we're doubting Rivers said much about this video taken at the San Diego pre-game rally last week, when Shawne Merriman leads a chant of "Brady sucks."
Bill Belichick's reaction to LaDainian Tomlinson's assertion that New England's "lack of class" stems from the head coach? "I have all the respect in the world for LaDainian Tomlinson and the San Diego Chargers. They're a tremendous football team. But we're moving on to Indianapolis."
We'll be out at practice shortly... there was no Rodney Harrison sighting in the locker room, but we'll of course be on the lookout for him today inside the fieldhouse.

First off i would like to say the Pats may have should little class in their celebration, but i can't blame them. All week long Charger players have been spouting off, and them came into the game and thought that the Pats would lie down like dogs and lose. Shawn "juice man" merrieman does his sack dance over Tom Brady but he didn't sack him. the team taunted the whole game and when the pats won they just taunted back. Everyone at some point will lose there cool, the pats just did it after they won. LT your a great player but look at your own teams mistakes and not the Pats celebration you lost and you know why. oh yeah Hey shawn how much does brady suck now?
