Where are they now?: David Tyree

David Tyree’s NFL career was anything but spectaculuar. In seven seasons (six with the New York Giants), he caught just 54 passes for 650 and four touchdowns. The New Jersey native’s life changed in Super Bowl XLII, however, when he made what is arguably the most amazing play in NFL history. You all know the play. “Catch 42” as it has come to be known, gave the Giants a first...

Starting Lineups: David Tyree Made Me Believe In Football

It was Super Bowl Sunday, 2008, and I was watching soccer. I’ve never been a rebel, but I suppose that’s the closest I’ve come.

Excerpt from "Strength of a champion"

My favorite Super Bowl moment of all-time didn't involve anything that happened in an actual game. David Tyree's catch, Ben Roethlisberger's perfect pass to Santonio Holmes, and all of Adam Vinatieri's clutch kicks take a back seat to a scene I witnessed prior to kickoff last year at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. Minutes before the Ravens and 49ers went at it...

The New England Patriots Have Chosen Poorly

For as much regular season success as the New England Patriots have enjoyed the last ten years, they have nothing to show for it.  One David Tyree catch here and one Wes Welker drop there, and they’re just like 31 other teams who failed to win the big one. Back in 2006, after blowing the biggest lead in AFC Championship history to Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts in Indy...

Random Athlete Of The Day- David Tyree

David Tyree played wide receiver primarily for the New York Giants from 2003 to 2009. Before Tyree made the NFL, he was a standout receiver and special teams player for my beloved Syracuse Orange, racking up 1,214 receiving yards and six blocked punts in his collegiate career.

A number of NFL players say they would have no problem with gay teammates

Whether there is any truth behind it or not, professional sports locker rooms are generally stereotyped as homophobic environments. That is particularly true for the NFL, which is not surprising considering the aggressiveness and masculinity that is associated with the game of football. While many believe the NFL is filled with players who would not want to be on the same team as...
