Pretty good article from FoxSports which talks about a lot of aspects of next Sunday's game. But it starts off with the focus on the relationship between Super 5 and Big Red. The Pats will face the best QB they have seen all season, including Peyton, because they knew where Peyton would be every single play.
If you are wondering about T.O., nothing new really, but Bill Lyon thinks there is no way Owen's misses the big one. More thoughts on Terrell Owens from ESPN Page2.
Also a video for you, watch the newest Eagle Jeff Thomason talk about going from construction work to the Superbowl on Fox's BDSS. (windows media)

"I haven't been a McNabb man, but I am now," says ESPN analyst Randy Mueller, the former Saints general manager. "He has made more strides this year than any player in the league. He's always been athletic, but now he is an accurate passer, too. He will be the best quarterback New England has faced this year. I know they played Manning, but they knew where Manning was going to be every play. With McNabb and the way he can move around, they'll never know with him. That fear of the unknown is always there."

Two legendary Philadelphia basketball coaches will square off for charity.
Temple’s Fran Dunphy and Jefferson’s (Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University) Herb Magee will have their teams face off at the Liacouras Center on Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
All ticket sales will be donated to One America Appeal to help those impacted by recent hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
“When the opportunity presented itself to play an exhibition game to raise money for the people suffering from the recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, we knew right away that we needed to be a part of it,” Dunphy said in a statement. "I called my good friend, Herb Magee, one of the most respected men in the business, and he felt the same way. This gives our fans a rare opportunity to see our programs compete while also helping out those in need.”
“It is a tremendous opportunity for our team,” Magee said. “Coach Dunphy and I have been friends for a long time. We talked about playing one day and that time is now. We're looking forward to it, especially as we begin our new era as the Jefferson Rams. Being able to provide aid to those impacted by the recent natural disasters makes this game that much more special.”
Temple requested a waiver from the NCAA to play this exhibition for charity.
The Owls tip off their season against Old Dominion in the Charleston Classic on Nov. 16, while the Rams travel to Anaheim, California to open Concordia on Nov. 3.
