“I want them to know and they know that I think we’re going to beat ’em. I don’t buy into all that other stuff. I recognize they’re a great football team and (Bill) Belichick is a great coach. I’ve never once said that he wasn’t. But we’re not going to back down or concede anything.
“They’re going to get our best shot. We know we’re going to get theirs. It really doesn’t matter who says what, but we’re going to be ourselves. We’re coming up there to take our swing. We’ll see if we land that punch to win the game.”
