Donte Whitner of the San Francisco 49ers apparently thinks the New York Giants, the 49ers opponent Sunday in the NFC Championship Game, talk too much.
"That's their blueprint - whenever they have a big game, they talk and talk," Whitner said. "We're not going to do that. The game is played on the football field. We're going to talk on Sunday. They can say whatever they want, God bless 'em."
Seriously, Donte? I mean, seriously? The Giants talk too much?
Wasn't it Vernon Davis of the 49ers who said he "prayed" the Giants would beat the Green Bay Packers? Sure, Antrel Rolle responded to Davis this week. Rolle sometimes does talk too much, but not here. Sure, an over-excited Jason Pierre-Paul guaranteed a victory over Green Bay -- then admitted he got carried away.
If that's what Whitner has to believe then good for him. Maybe he forgot which New York team the 49ers are actually playing against on Sunday.
