Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka read Tom Brady's comments and didn't see anything wrong with them.

INDIANAPOLIS -- When Tom Brady said Sunday that he hoped there would be more people at the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory celebration than there were at the team’s sendoff, the comments were blown up by New York media, insulted at Brady’s premature party planning.

But for the Giants, it was a lot of fuss over nothing.

“I read his exact words and the way he phrased it,” linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said. “You get to this level and you get to this game because you’re confident in yourself. Now, if somebody wants to come out and throw some legitimate trash talk, we’ll talk about that. But it’s just, you guys need something to do for the week, I guess.”

Safety Antrel Rolle said none of it matters.

“The game has to be played on Sunday,” he said. “That’s going to be the only thing that determines the outcome of the game. No talk, no media, no speculation, no parties are really relevant at this point.”
