A New England Patriots fan’s open letter to Tom Brady

I want to preface this article by saying that I am, unequivocally, the consummate homer. I live and breathe Boston sports. Always have. Always will. Aaron Boone. David Tyree. Bernard Pollard. Mario Manningham. Bryan Bickell/Dave Bolland. These are names that will forever be entrenched in my mind as the catalysts for some of the most heartbreaking moments of my life. It took me years...

New England Patriots fans can’t bear to watch David Tyree’s historic catch in Super Bowl XLII. Likewise, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockettte can’t bring himself to watch the deciding play of Super Bowl XLIX. Lockette was the intended receiver on the Seahawks’ final play of the game — a goal line pass from the one-yard line that was intercepted by Patriots cornerback...

Throwback Thursday: Three plays that’ll get Giants fans pumped for 2015

If history is going to maintain itself, then the New York Giants will be playing in Super Bowl 50. They won it all in Super Bowl 42 and 46, so perhaps it’s their time again. With the Giants offense looking like its most dangerous in decades, and the defense ready to be championship-caliber under old friend Steve Spagnuolo, New York is more than capable of being a legitimate championship...

Somehow, the Patriots are going to be just fine

Love them or hate them. There’s really not much in between for football fans in terms of the New England Patriots, but there is no denying that the defending Super Bowl champions are a well-oiled machine. The Patriots have made more noise than anyone else this offseason as a result of the “Deflategate” investigation that concluded New England quarterback Tom Brady likely...

Giants fans and decent people everywhere will love this deflate gate meme

I’m not going to lie. I hate Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. I hated them long before my Seahawks inexplicably decided to pass the ball at the one yard line. Now that these lying, cheating, thieving cretins have been exposed for what they are, the entire football world is united in their opposition to the Patriots. That makes what the New York Giants did to them that much...

Rookie WR Geremy Davis embraces the David Tyree comparison

When the New York Giants selected University of Connecticut wide receiver Geremy Davis in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the decision makers immediately lauded him for his special teams. The Giants want Davis to become the team's next David Tyree after waiting several long years for a special teams ace like him. Of course, Tyree is remembered most for his iconic catch in...

WATCH: Does Jermaine Kearse’s miracle Super Bowl catch remind you of anything?

In a dramatic finish the Seattle Seahawks fell one-yard short of beating the New England Patriots as they were picked off at the one-yard line with less than 30 seconds to go. One of the more amazing plays on that final drive was a miracle catch by Jermaine Kearse. Check it out: Remind you of anything? As the...

Seahawks squander opportunity that might not come again

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- This one will haunt Seattle coach Pete Carroll the entire offseason. Fate was in his corner. Receiver Jermaine Kearse had just made the kind of catch that Giants receiver David Tyree called "supernatural" the last time the Patriots were here chasing destiny in 2008. Thanks to Kearse's juggling, use-all-body-parts, 33-yard catch, Seattle was on the doorstep of back...

Patriots beat Seahawks to win fourth Super Bowl under Tom Brady, Bill Belichick

In February 2008, the New York Giants ended Tom Brady and the New England Patriots’ hopes for the first perfect season since 1972 when David Tyree made one of the greatest catches in NFL history late in Super Bowl XLII, pinning an Eli Manning pass to his helmet as he fell to the ground in the final moments of a 17-14 victory.
