Sharpe: “If you look at it, it’s not a Super Bowl match-up, but I don’t know if there’s ever been a more anticipated, a more hyped regular season game than what you have here. This might be, if this was cartoons, this is Godzilla vs. Megalodon.”
Tony Dungy: (laughs) “I think you’re right. I had never been involved in one until last year, the Manning Bowl opening day. That had a lot of hype for the regular season but this has been building for five or six weeks. And, to me, I guess I look at it like when I was in high school and it was Frazier against Ali. Ali was the people’s champ and he had been the greatest and all of a sudden Frazier comes along. But they said now Ali’s back and he’s better than ever. And it was, it was just an unbelievable situation and I think this is the same thing. People are saying, hey, New England was the champ. They’ve been away for a couple of years. Now they’re reloaded. For both teams to be undefeated, it’s great for the NFL, it really is.”
