Bradshaw paid attention...I forget...who won that Superbowl again?
Hollywood wasn't a member of the media. The players hear when others players yap. Steelers DB Anthony Smith guaranteed a win against NE in '07. Brady specifically targeted him, and then he made sure to get in his face about it during the game.
Video highlights here. 1:27 of the video shows Brady yapping back.
They did the same thing in 2004 against the Eagles, with Freddie Mitchell running his mouth as well.
