    In honor of his birthday today, name your favorite Troy Brown play from his career.

    I'll start with the 2001 AFC Championship game blocked field goal lateral.

    No Jersey Selected

    Him saving the day in the '06 Divisional round v.s. San Diego. What a clutch strip.

    Speaking of clutch, he made a couple of clutch catches at the end of Super Bowl 36 as well.

    Against the Giants last game in 1996....the Patriots were down by 2 TDS..and Bledsoe threw a flare pass to Brown out in the flat. The defender had teh ball for an INT and Troy wrestled it away, showing great strength. Although the play might have lost yardage, a turnover would have given the Giants incredible field position and a chance to stretch it to 3 scores.
    It was a great play...saving the game. Parcelss said it was one of the smartest plays he had seen and it really was...Meggett helped win the game, but when it was doubt, Troy made the play.Happy Birthday TROY!!!!!

    sorry troy....

    my favorite play was when your dad snuck one by the goalie, and I ain't talking hockey.

    You have always been a great player, my favorite patriot, and at key times in many games.

    Happy B-day man...

    Another great Troy Brown moment from the same game: Late in the second half, Pats rallying from a 22-0 halftime deficit. Pats are in Giants territory and on a crucial 3rd down play Troy makes an incredible catch for a first down while lying flat on his back. Great concentration on the ball. IIRC, this kept the game winning TD drive alive.

    Other great Troy Brown moments not already mentioned.......

    2003 game in Miami, Troy catches an 80+ yard TD bomb from Tom Brady in OT to win an important divisional game.

    2004 game in St. Louis, Troy catches a fake FG TD pass from Adam Vinatieri that completely fools everyone watching.

    Troy also had a punt return for a TD in the same game.

    Happy B-Day, Troy! Hopefully you haven't played your last game in a Patriots uniform.

    That 2003 play in Miami was a good one. At that point I, and I'm not sure anyone, knew how good that team was. I certainly wasn't sure they'd run the table on the final 15 games of the year. Just one of the many special moments that year & in Brown's career.
