Talk is cheap

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour has some advice for tough-talking Giants receiver Plaxico Burress, who was hinting at a victory guarantee in New York tabloids on the weekend.

"Talk is cheap, get it done over here," Seymour said yesterday, pointing over his back at the field where Sunday's game will be played. "We've had guys make predictions in the past and we've all seen what happens to them."

"Predictions are just words," added New England safety Rodney Harrison. "You've got to back it up."

SICK BAY

While Tom Brady said yet again that his foot will be fine Sunday, especially after his team's first practice on Monday, the New York Giants have a different concern.

Many on the G-men have been fighting a flu bug since the team returned from frigid Green Bay following their dramatic win in the NFC Championship.

"In Green Bay, everyone got sick," Giants defensive end Michael Strahan said. "I am still, you can tell by my voice, I'm still not right since that."

Strahan said he expects his teammates either to be better by Sunday or to suck it up. And if not, he doesn't anticipate an off performance.

SPELLMAN ARRESTED

Former NFL player Alonzo Spellman was arrested yesterday after Tulsa police fired pepper-spray pellets into his car following a nearly 20-minute chase.

Spellman was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on complaints of eluding, assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, resisting arrest and driving without a licence, jail records show.

Spellman was a first-round draft choice out of Ohio State for the Chicago Bears in 1992. He played nine seasons in the NFL for the Bears, Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys.
