Patriots Talk: Tom Brady’s Missing Super Bowl Jersey is Found

The mystery of [Quarterback] Tom Brady‘s missing jersey has finally been resolved. The night after Super Bowl LI, it was publicly announced that the jersey was missing from the New England Patriots locker-room to the public and many law enforcement including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The stolen Super Bowl jersey became a topic of comedy such with comedian Seth Meyers poking fun at the situation on his show Late Night. This wasn’t the first time that this has happened during a Super Bowl event. (A great example is nine years ago when the New York Giants won Super Bowl XLII, they had given Hall-of-fame [Linebacker] Michael Strahan a replicate jersey that resulted in a lawsuit)

Tom Brady also got in on the fun and posted a photo on his Instagram of who he suspects was the culprit. Despite the situation, Tom Brady had stated public ally he wanted to retrieve the jersey to give to his mother, Glynn Patricia, who had been battling illness for the past year. This resulted in many authorities searching for over a month to retrieve the Super Bowl jersey from Houston police, NFL security and the FBI. Today, it was announced that not only was the Super Bowl LI jersey retrieved but the jersey from Super Bowl XLIX (which took place two years ago) was also discovered as well. The press announcement was on Fox Sports (FS1), the official NFL statement was recently sent out by NFL PR expert, Brian McCarthy on Twitter which stated:

 

The identity of the culprit has remained anonymous for the time being until more details are released but its very likely that whoever stole both Super Bowl jerseys will have their press credentials revoked.  The international media network that the person works for is possibly close to the Southern United States as Super Bowl XLIX (Arizona) and LI (Texas) are located in that region. While the situation has been resolved, its quite shocking that Tom Brady rarely mentioned the missing jersey from two years ago. The jerseys were both found in Mexico (where specifically is unknown), which likely suggests that the suspect is of foreign origins. And in addition to the missing jerseys, it was speculated that Denver Broncos‘ [Linebacker] and Super Bowl MVP Von Miller‘s Super Bowl 50 cleats could have been stolen by the same person.

Patriots Talk: Patriots Shut Out Raiders In Mexico City

Published

What a day for the Patriots to secure a win in the most Patriot way possible. The game was effectively over before the 2nd quarter ended. The team was dominant throughout the entire duration of the game and it showed. In many ways, there were a number of factors within this game that caused the Raiders to ultimately fold early on in the game

The Altitude Difference

The Patriots had the smart idea to stay in Denver and travel to Colorado Springs to adjust their bodies to the pressures of high altitude. The Raiders took the same approach when they traveled to Mexico City to play against the Houston Texans in Week 11 of the 2016 season. Although, the method worked last year, you can’t deny that there was a lot of outside interference in that game.

This time around, it was very clearly from just the fact that CB Stephon Gilmore and WR Danny Amendola leaving the game due to dehydration showed how taxing the high altitude was on them. The Raiders were arguably worse with their team as they allowed 4 turnovers on the offense yesterdays. The sheer pressure the game put on most of the players was quite significant in this game for both team. But the Patriots ultimately minimzed the effect that it had on them.

Patriots Football Talk: Patriots Dominance Continues In Mexico

Patriots

It was a sunny Sunday at the Estadio Azteca, Mexico’s Premier Stadium, in Mexico City.  The New England Patriots were facing off against the Oakland Raiders in what was called a Road Game.  It was a made for TV experience to draw in a more viewers and fans.  It was the NFL’s way to reach a larger market, that being fans in Mexico City.

The Game showed off the best in the NFL.  And you know what?  The best Team in the NFL showed what it means to be the best.  Of course I’m talking about the Patriots dominating yet another Team.  They continue to out preform their opponents on the field.  It’s something that this year’s Team has grown in to.  From being just a contender to being an all-out reigning champ; this Team has figured out how to be great.  Today’s game was proof of that!  I’d say they played perfect, but they didn’t get the shut out.  Hey you can’t have everything!

NFL Talk: Week 11 Picks

Published

on

Patriots

We are finally getting down to the last stretch of the season where teams will finally start to line up where they will make the playoffs and those who will simply tank for the higher pick in the 2018 NFL draft. At this point, most people have teams figured out and know how games should go from here on out. As of now, I got 11-3 correct last week, which puts me at 95-51 for the season.

Tennessee Titans @ Pittsburgh Steelers: Winner – Steelers

At this point in the season, I think the Titans will likely make the wildcard as Jacksonville will run away with the division. The Steelers are pretty much a lock for the playoffs. Their division has the Browns with the worst record in the NFL, and the Bengals and Ravens have fallen off. Even though the game was already played yesterday here was my thoughts before the game:

They are playing the Titans at home and the Steelers defense has been a hack of a surprise for this season. It’s mainly because of how much money was invested into their offense yet their defense has improved substantially from last year. The 2nd best passing defense in the NFL (allowing only 181.8 passing yards per game) and 11th against the run (allowing 102.7 rushing yards per game).

The Titans will have some serious difficulties holding the Steelers down while they are playing at home. Despite the Titans not having a bad team by any stretch (they have the 6th best rushing defense in the NFL), this is the Steelers game to lose and thankfully after what we have seen, that isn’t alot. Steelers won by 40-17 and my prediction was they would score 27-20. (Titans couldn’t even get me that)

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns: Winner – Jaguars

If the Jags somehow throw this game away I will be so done with predicting their games this season. The Browns are a team that needs a massive overhaul and I don’t see it being enough for them to win this game. The Jaguars will win this game 24-21 with Blake Bortles somehow almost throwing the game away. Almost.
