    The Deflategate Diaries

    The Deflategate Diaries

    Is Tom Brady a cheater? Two weeks after he was accused by the Indianapolis Colts of having air leaked out of their footballs in the 2014 AFC Championship Game, Tom Brady won Super Bowl LI—his fourth Super Bowl victory. Brady was suspended for four games, fined $1 million, and the New England Patriots forfeited two draft picks. There were many legal machinations and appeals involving the NFL, commissioner Roger Goodell, as well as federal and appeals courts. Does Deflategate impact Tom Brady's legacy as The Greatest Quarterback of All Time? Gary Myers pulls back the curtain.

    Spygate, The Schmuck, and Near Perfection

    Spygate, The Schmuck, and Near Perfection

    In Game 1 of the 2007 season NFL security busted up the New England Patriots' espionage ring—what came to be known as Spygate. Bill Belichick was having his film crew tape the opposing team's defensive signals. The Patriots went on to football's first 16-0 regular season record and it was only one of the greatest underdog performances in NFL history by Eli Manning's New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII—including the famed Helmet Catch by David Tyree—that stopped Tom Brady and the Patriots from cementing the title of Greatest Team Ever. Was Brady and the New England Patriots dynasty tainted?

    Porterhouse or New York Strip?

    Porterhouse or New York Strip?

    The rivalry between Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts (and then the Denver Broncos) was so intense that it carried over to games played between Brady and Peyton’s little brother Eli Manning—and not just in the Super Bowl. Peyton once asked the New York Giants defense, through Eli, to prevent Tom Brady from breaking his single season TD record. In return, if the mission was accomplished, the Giants defense requested Peyton pick up the check at an expensive Manhattan steakhouse. Porterhouse or New York strip?

    Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning

    Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning

    Tom Brady was a draft day afterthought as the 199th overall pick when he went to the New England Patriots in 2000. Peyton Manning was born into NFL royalty, destined to be the #1 overall pick and greatness on the Indianapolis Colts and then the Denver Broncos. This unlikely pairing of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning produced the greatest rivalry in NFL football history, and one that many feel shaped the modern NFL in many ways. The two star quarterbacks met head-to-head 17 times, with Brady holding an 11–6 edge over Manning. Manning did win the last three times they met in the AFC Championship Game, but Brady ultimately leads the rivalry with 6–2 in Super Bowl victories.

    We Are All Patriots

    We Are All Patriots

    The streets of New Orleans in the week leading up to the St. Louis Rams-New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVI were red, white, and blue. It was about five months after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. It was the most patriotic Super Bowl ever, so maybe it was appropriate the Patriots won. It was also when the football world found out Tom Brady was for real—as he led an amazing last-minutes drive for one of the greatest NFL football upsets ever and was named Super Bowl MVP for the first time.

    Saving Coach Belichick

    Saving Coach Belichick

    Tom Brady saved Bill Belichick's job. Bill Belichick was 5-11 in his first season as the coach of the New England Patriots. Belichick was 0-2 in his second season when Drew Bledsoe was injured so badly that both his football career and his life was on the line. Belichick knew he was on a short leash—or thin ice—and could be fired at the end of the season. Not many knew it at the time, but Belichick wanted to open the season with the quarterback that was once a 6th round afterthought as his starting quarterback: Tom Brady. Brady owed Belichick a lot for drafting and developing him and Brady paid him back by saving his coaching career.
