The New England Patriots have won their fourth Super Bowl under the dynamic duo of Belichik and Brady and their first in a decade beating the Seattle Seahawks 28-24.
The Pats were down 24-14 in the fourth quarter and, well, Brady did his magic by throwing TD passes to Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. In so doing, Brady passed Joe Montana on the all-time Super Bowl TD passes list.
But with scarcely a minute in the game, it looked like Seahawks would win when Jermaine Kearse somehow caught a Russell Wilson pass that kept bouncing around but never hit the ground. Pats fans were having flashbacks to David Tyree.
But Pats rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted a Wilson pass in the end zone to deny the Seahawks back to back Super Bowl titles. Pats win. Tom Brady was named Super Bowl XLIX MVP for the third time joining Joe Montana in that achievement. Brady also joins Montana and Terry Bradshaw as the only QBs to win four Super Bowls. Belichick also joins Chuck Knoll as the only head coaches to win four Super Bowls.
I know a lot of people are going to cry cheaters. And when Belichik answered reporters questions about deflating footballs he sounded like a suspect on Law & Order: SVU. Or should I say Super Bowl: STU – Special Teams Unit.
But if deflated footballs were so beneficial to the Patriots why was it that they scored most of their points against the Colts after the balls were inflated?
Like it or not, Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in NFL history, Bill Belichick is the greatest coach in NFL history and the New England Patriots are the best team in NFL history.
This is the 9th title a New England professional sports team has won since 2002. In addition to the Pats four Super Bowl titles, the Red Sox have won three World Series titles while the Celtics and Bruins have won a NBA title and a Stanley Cup apiece.
Tomorrow should be a happy day on the T unless we have another snow day. Somehow I don’t think anybody in New England is going to mind a little snow tomorrow.
