Pierce: Browns trash talk doesn't bother me

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

I wondered if the Browns' trash talk would light a fire under the Giants, but it sounds like they're blowing it off.

"It is always good when somebody is taking a shot at somebody," said linebacker Antonio Pierce, a known trash talker.

"At least you know we are being looked at and they are taking notice of us. Hats off to them. What else would you do if you were 1-3? You have to do something to fire up your team. I don't knock the guys for doing what they are doing. It is no different than what I did last year or what other guys on this team did when we were down. They are doing whatever they need to do to rally their troops and get their home stadium fired-up for Monday Night Football. It should be fun in the Dawg Pound."
