Connelly’s Top Ten – Day After – Just as Sweet!

1. Last July when the Brady suspension was official – the collective hope of a devastated Patriot nation was the following:

 

·         I hope he comes back pissed off

·         I hope his teammates rally around him

·         I hope Jimmy G shows well

·         I hope he leads the team on the Revenge Tour right to Houston

·         I hope he wins his 5th Super Bowl and is known throughout the land as the greatest quarterback of all time

·         I hope he wins MVP of the Super Bowl and that weasel Goodell who used to get stuffed in lockers in high school has to hand him the MVP trophy

 

It all happened!

 

2. Brady is a winner!

 

Postseason – 25-9  ——– .735%

Super Bowl – 5-2 ———- .714%

Regular Season 183-54—.772%

Indoors – 16-4—————.800%

Home – 101-17—————.856%

Road (ROAD!) – 82-37—–.689%

Non Sunday Games -31-7 -.815%

NFC – 46-14——————–.766%

AFC East – 71-19————–.789%

Non AFC East 112-35——–.762%

December 54-10 ————-.844%

 

3. Brady after the third quarter of the last two Super Bowls

 

·         34-42 (81%) / 380 yards / 3 TD’s – 0 INT

 

4. Patriots were down a combined 29 points in the 4th quarter of the last two Super Bowls and won both

 

5. IF – Assante intercepts the ball, Reche Caldwell doesn’t go deer in headlights, if Welker holds ball, if Patriots beat Dolphins in Miami last year – the Patriots have NINE Super Bowls in 15 years

 

6. Brady won a Super Bowl with Lee Johnson who was born in 1961 and Elandron Roberts who was born in 1994

 

7. The Greatest athletes of all time now – no order:

 

·         Tom Brady

·         Ali

·         Jesse Owens

·         Michael Jordan

·         Willie Mays

·         Babe Ruth

·         Michael Phelps

·         Jim Brown

 

8. Great comebacks

 

·         Patriots down 25 points in Super Bowl (they were 3rd and ten on their own 9 yard line with 3 minutes to go needing a TD and a two point conversion)

·         Bruins come back against Toronto Blue Jays

·         Red Sox come back against Yankees 2004

 

9. If the Patriots get a first round pick for Jimmy G:

 

·         They have two first round picks / second / two thirds / fourth / fifth / seventh —- and you get back Gronk and Vollmer

 

10. Misc

 

·         Gronk playing caveman only got $250,000 – not worth it

·         When you re-watch the game – watch as Brady is walking to the sideline for the two-minute warning – he winks at one of the Falcons (the Falcon must have said Oh shi*!)

·         That was a tough catch by James White on the snap for the two-point conversion

·         How does a billion dollar organization allow someone in the locker room that would steal a $500,000 shirt – no video with all those media outlets?

·         I loved the Good Will Hunting spoof – How You Like Those Apples (Goodell)

·         Patriots hater’s backlash – Belichick doesn’t win Executive of the Year / Belichick doesn’t win Coach of the Year / Brady doesn’t win MVP / Law doesn’t get in the Hall of Fame
