TWO DAYS BEFORE KICK-OFF AND THE PATS ARE ALREADY INSIDE THEIR HEADS:

Trash talking on mute: Colts players know better (Steve Buckley, January 20, 2007, Boston Herald)

Tomorrow's AFC Championship Game between the Patriots [team stats] and Colts has turned into the Decorum Bowl, with players from both teams competing to see who can make the nicest comment about the opposition.

And the champion of that little contest is the embattled Colts, who have apparently learned from the mistakes the dead-and-buried San Diego Chargers made last week.[...]

In fact, the Colts are so respectful of the Pats that even simple slips of the tongue were pulled back and corrected. Here's a classic: Free safety Bob Sanders, after pointing out that Brady is 12-2 in the postseason, was told that the Pats quarterback actually is 12-1. When Sanders was asked if he was including a loss tomorrow, he quickly jumped in and said, "No . . . no, really. I ain't gonna jump that far ahead."
