In the video above, Countdown Daily's Steve Levy and Mark Schlereth talk about Tom Brady's attitude headed into this Super Bowl rematch with the Giants.
Does Schlereth think the revenge factor is important to Brady? Absolutely.
"I can't see how there isn't something there," says Schlereth, adding that Brady has a chip on his shoulder that dates back to when he was passed over in the draft.
"You don't think he's held a grudge since that day against every other team that bypassed him? ... He's still trying to stick it to every one of those teams," says Schlereth.
And on getting back at the Giants after Super Bowl XLII?
"You can't tell me there's not something stuck in everybody's craw that was on that [Patriots] team, especially the head coach and the quarterback," he says.
