Sorry, I don't have one for you. Nothing about Adam Jones and physicals either. But Larry Stone, who has been working on this all day, does have some info.
"By the way,'' Stone writes, "despite Internet reports, Jones was not in Baltimore for a physical on Friday. As of Saturday, he was still at home."
I know who Stone got that info from and I assume he wasn't lying. We're trying to stay as accurate as possible and not let the rumor mill get out of hand.
By the way, for what it's worth, I think the Giants have a good shot at upending New England tomorrow. Better than just about any NFC team would have. Aw heck, I think they're going to win, and not just because of the defensive line. That alone won't do it. For me, having a 265-pound running back helps. If the Giants control the ball, it should be very interesting. That means Plaxico Burress needs to play the game of his life and make the first down catches like he did in Green Bay. If you can beat up on Al Harris, you can take any corner in the league. The biggest deal in this game? If I was a betting man, I'd say the lack of a fear factor plays into New York's hands more than anything else. They won't waste the first quarter being in awe of the Patriots, since they just played them a month ago. That's a huge deal in football. Bigger than some folks realize.
I know I'm overstepping my turf here, but hey, had to fill up this post with something.
