Let the games begin. At least that is the thought process of the New York Giants, who are not believing for one second that Tom Brady is not going to be just about 100 percent when he and the Pats take the field vs the Giants in the Super Bowl in Glendale on February 3rd. As a matter a fact, some Giants believe that the whole “Brady in a Boot” saga that began yesterday is a total hoax. “I think it’s a psychological plot,” Antonio Pierce told the New York Daily News. “If he’s hurt, it really doesn’t matter, because he’s going to play. He’s not a running quarterback. All you need is to throw the ball. If his arm was in a sling, I would have a little smile on my face.”
Word from those that know the situation is that Brady is suffering from a high ankle sprain on his right foot. He was seen in a walking boot on Monday, and as soon as the media got a hold of the pics, there were everywhere. The Giants are not for one second buying into the fact that when the Pats take the field with the ball for the first time on Super Sunday, Brady won’t be in there due to the injury. “Even if it was a big deal right now, he’s got two weeks to treat it and get it right,” Justin Tuck said. “A little bum ankle is not going to hold anybody out of this game. With the adrenaline flowing, it’s a non-issue.”
For now, the injury has the entire Super Bowl landscape waiting on edge for what is going to happen next. Neither team right now has to give out any injury info, and you can bet that the Pats are going to us that to their advantage going into next week. Is Brady really hurt? Yeah, his ankle is probably sore, maybe a little swollen, but don’t buy into it – he’s playing, and the Giants are smart enough to know the same thing.
