Tampa, Fla. (AP) Tom Brady won the first Super Bowl, beating Troy Brown, Jeremy Wiggins and David Patton, and got the seventh ring shot to Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown and Rob Grokovsky.
There is a significant gap between New England’s first tour operators and the Star Trek in Tampa Bay, but the usual theme is No. 12.
Brady won with Dion Branch, David Grains, Brandon Lafel, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Hogan and Danny Amandola to star Julian Edelman and Wes Walker.
It is based on JR Redmond and Kevin Falk throwing Neveren and James White into the running back. His tight ends have always been favorites from Wiggins, Daniel Graham and Benjamin Watson to Aaron Hernandez, Martilus Bennett and Gronowski.
Along the way, Brady’s best reception was at the Famer Randy Moss Hall. They broke the record together and went 16-0 in 2007, but did not beat them all.
The 44-year-old five-time Super Bowl MVP will face the Patriots for the first time on Sunday night after leaving New England after 20 years. On the contrary, he saw many famous faces, including the leader of the first Super Ball victory two decades ago.
In Troy Brown, the Patriots won six of Brady’s passes for 89 yards as the Patriots marveled at Ram’s “great show”. Brown has now trampled on the return of New England’s wide-ranging coaches.
“I played with the man for a long time, and I trained with him for two years,” says Brown. It’s a little confusing, but at the end of the day, it’s still a competition and a challenge. That’s what comes. I mean, I know I didn’t play, but you are still approaching the game like any other team around the league, we are doing our best to prepare for what they have. We approach this game in the same way, because Tom Brady is not Tom Brady or why, because he is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We have a really good football team around us. ”
Not surprisingly, Brady is still playing well all these years. GOAT already has 10 touchdowns in three games, which makes it fast to develop a new career. He dropped 50 TD passes for Moss, including 23 in ’07.
“Well, I think Tom Brady, if anyone can pull it off,” said Brown. ”He was such a person throughout his career. There is no reason to think that he will still not play. He said he would play forever when he entered the league. And, he’s trying to make that happen, I guess. ”
Wiggins had two catches for 14 yards in New England’s first Super Ball win. Brady, a native of Boston, could not believe that he had changed groups.
“Since he left here, I still can’t stand it. I never thought I would see him in another uniform. I thought Brady would be the only uniform he wore to the New England Patriots. When he left, it was strange to see him in that Tampa Bay uniform. To this day I have not been able to practice because I feel that the title he won there may have been another one in New England.
Patriots coach Bill Bellich said he did not want Brady to leave earlier this week.
He looked at the options and made the decision. We were not an alternative to Tampa, ”Bellich said on WEEI’s weekly radio program. You have to ask him about all that, but there is no question that you do not want him, that is for sure.
Brady did not elaborate on Belich’s phone call, instead of meeting him in person last year as an independent agent.
”All of this is very personal. We had a great relationship. I think it was handled correctly. We treat everything with grace, ”Brady said. It was a wonderful time. Absolutely. I think where we are all, the people involved are understood. Things are going well for us and we are all trying to do what we can right now.
He always brings out the best in anyone who plays with Brady.
