On spying and concourse conversations

11/21/2010

BOSTON -- Peter King wrote Friday he believes that Peyton Manning and Clyde Christensen believe that locker room conversations at Gillette Stadium are not necessarily private. So to avoid any spying, they may do some of their talking in a concourse outside the locker room.

I’m reluctant to give this much volume, because the jump from the quarterback and the coordinator believing it to be so and it being so is so giant.

As Tim Graham points out, in this day and age, it would be simply reckless of the Patriots to take such a chance and more than anything it suggests the home team could be in the visitors’ heads. (Sorry to ask you to wade through the “Hogan’s Heroes” and “Casino” stuff there, but that’s what he does.)

Quite frankly, I don’t care if Manning and Christensen blare music and run the water in the shower while talking in sign language or smoke signals.

It’s not the how here, it’s the what.

The important thing is that some of the conversation is on point in terms of figuring out how to move the ball against New England.

And that’s all I’ve got to say about that. For now, anyway.
