    Quite early at age 30.

    A Pro-Bowl selection and the greatest catch in SB history ain't too shabby for a 6th round pick. He never made another catch after SB42.

    David Tyree will go down in history as a player who never did anything as a WR his entire career except for one of the biggest catches in his team's history.

    I know I should be bitter, but I just can't. Blame can be laid at the feet of Asante Samuel for breaking the route, the refs for not calling holding OR in the grasp, BB for not kicking the 48 yard FG or calling the all out blitz on the TD pass, the "Beard Brothers" for not showing up, or Josh McDaniels for not having a screen pass in his play book.

    Tyree made one of the most exciting/flukiest/luckiest catches of all time on the biggest stage possible. Good for him, and I hope he enjoys retirement.

    He was lucky that Rodney tried to make a play on the ball. Just by the way the bodies were tangled he got a soft landing and that enabled him to gain pocession and hold it.

    Otherwise, the ball would have come out and he would have been known for nothing.

    David, I hate to say it, but good for you. You were in the right place at the right time and you did the right thing. No one can ever take that away from you. I hope you don't mind that I wish you were never born.

    He'll always share the same middle name as Bucky Dent around these parts.

    I can't be bitter about it either. Tyree isn't the reason the Pats lost.

    He didn't do much in his career, but he'll have one good story to tell his grandkids.

    Unoriginal put out a thread completely obliterating the "no screen" argument. Screens were tried. They simply failed miserably.

    Sure ... he'll be walking up the street and the wind will blow a lottery ticket right aside his head.

    He'll throw his hand up to keep it there as he slips and falls.

    Everyone knows the rest of the story.

    agreed. 6 months ago i'd still feel sick to my stomach thinking about it.

    Now when i think about it i just want to smash my mailbox over some idiot's head. it's a lot nicer feeling.

    Giants played tough and they deserved to win that game.

    hi patjew. i hope you are good. not to derail thread or anything.

    Yeah, I'm getting to the point where I may be able to watch a highlight from that game in 12 or 13 years.

    It's great to see you on the board again, man. We could have used you around here this offseason. Hope you're doing well.

    Well another thread goes down the drain thanks to DI and his need to be the top contrarian know it all in the forum...



    Congrats on your retirement and all time fame among New Yorkers David, you did to the Giants what Bucky Dent did for the Yankees and Mookie Wilson did for the Mets in the annals of New England history. Can't be angry at you for doing your job and making an all time sports highlight reel but damn you for doing it! :mad::D
