Brady To Plax: Playin’ Defense?

Giants WR Plaxico Burress – who missed practice Wednesday because of a tender ankle – may be suiting up for the Giants defense as well on Sunday, at least that’s what Tom Brady wants to know. Burress made a bold prediction for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, saying not only that the G-men would pull the upset, but provided a score of Giants 23, Patriots 17.

With the Patriots playing indoors and in the best weather in about two months, Brady not surprisingly was perplexed by Plax.

“We’re only going to score 17 points? OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points.”

My Take: Though the comment was made partly in jest by Brady and Burress should show confidence in his team, it seems preposterous to predict such a low scoreline. If he wants to predict a Giants victory, more power to him. But the Patriots scored 589 points in the regular season (including 38 against the Giants in the frigid Meadowlands) and now playing in a climate controlled oasis, they could have 17 points after the first quarter.
