Tom Brady will start his 7th Super Bowl this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons…
Brady and coach New England coach Bill Belichick have teamed up for what most would say has been the most dominant NFL team ever. In fact, Pat’s owner Robert Kraft said this week that he and Belichick have discussed how much longer he plans to coach the team. That they both now know when he will leave, but Kraft did not share that detail with the press.
And while most NFL observers feel that Atlanta has been the overall best team this season, the Patriots are a 3 point favorite.
Tom Terrific has four world titles as does, Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw. However, this is his 7th trip to the big show. Many also say Aaron Rodgers is the best, but he has only one Super Bowl win.
If Tom Brady and his Patriots win this Sunday, Brady will have five championships.
Only Green bay’s Bart Starr has five and three of those were before the Super Bowl era,
Brady’s record may never be broken – seven trips to the Super Bowl as a quarterback on the same team. He lives at the Super Bowl. Another interesting fact is that Brady has had to get it done with several different weapons on offense and defense.
Brady and Belichick are the only constants in this incredible run.
And as of now NO PATRIOT on those past teams are hall of famers.
America seems to want to see Atlanta beat Brady and the Patriots.
So many fans are just tired of New England and Brady winning.
Brady of course has the deflate-gate and spy-gate scandals, – with the chant, “the Patriots are cheaters.” And yet, he just keeps on being mister perfect on and off the field.
Of course there is great interest from the public of seeing how NFL commish Roger Goodell will handle the trophy presentation to after the game if the Pats win.
Clearly both Brady and Belichick dislike Goodell after Brady’s deflate-gate four game suspension. Many, including me, felt this was way over the top and unfair.
I think Atlanta and Matt Ryan have been just fantastic this season and great in their post season wins.
They look almost unbeatable.
Having said that, I still like the Pats and Brady to win the game: Why? New England is just a machine. They are so experienced in being in the big game at the top of their organization. And Belichick – like him or not – is the NFL’s best coach and he finds ways to take out your best weapons.
If you don’t sack or get to Brady he will carve you up.
So I like New England to win this game 27-23…close.
