    A survey of the following questions for you to answer:

    BEST PERFORMANCE BY A PATRIOTS PLAYER EVER IN A SINGLE GAME

    WORST PERFORMANCE BY A PATRIOTS PLAYER EVER IN A SINGLE GAME

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IMO BEST PERFORMANCE BY A PATRIOTS PLAYER EVER would have to be QB Drew Bledsoe in 1994 while down by 24 points to the Minnesota Vikings in the 3rd quarter almost single handidly brought the Patriots back to an overtime win over the Vikings (I believe it went overtime,If I am wrong correct me)

    IMO WORST PERFORMANCE BY A PATRIOTS PLAYER EVER would have to be QB Tony Eason in Super Bowl 20 - Albeit he played only a few minutes but Played so bad in 6 attempts (0-6 no yards passing) he did not complete a pass that he was yanked quickly and Steve Grogan had no choice but to come in and get bullwhipped by the Bears pass rush,can't think of a worse performance by any Patriots player ever,especially bad in the biggest game of all.

    Your selections?

    15-34 1 td 5 INTS

    How about for worst performances, that one game every year that Brady throws 4 interceptions - have we ever won any of those games?

    For best performances, that one game every year that Brady throws for over 300 yards, 2TD's and 0 INT's.

    How's that for 'being on the fence'

    It's always 4 too. It's rarely just 3. Usually when #3 happens I'll say "well #4 is coming up soon".

    Some non-QB good games:

    Troy Brown in the AFC Championship vs. Pitt

    Ty Law and Rodney Harrison tag-teaming Marvin Harrison to 4 TOs vs. 3 receptions

    The Best David Patten in 2001 against the Colts. He had a throw, catch and run for a touchdown in the same game.

    Worst name any by Joe Kapp, Tommy Hodson, Marc Wilson and Hugh Millen.

    I agree with that. When you consider the best performance you have to consider the size of the stage.

    How about Odell Lawson?

    Between the lines, probably no running back had better lateral movement.

    Just didn't know about forward movement...

    I don't think that's the same Sam Cunningham as the former Patriot and big brother of Randall. :rolleyes:

    yes, in fact I believe Patten had two receiving TDs to go with his TD run and TD throw. The only thing he was missing that day was a TD pass to himself :)

    The Pats have only won one game when Brady throws 3+ interceptions, and that was this past season's playoff game against the San Diego Chargers.

    Actually, they were only down by 20, and this was still in the 2nd quarter. The halftime score was 20-3.

    Agreed!

    Patten gets my vote.

    Somebody mentioned this in passing, but without a monster performance by Troy Brown, there is no super Bowl.


    The Pittsburgh Steelers would not disagree, as the latest victims in Brown's path of destruction to Super Bowl XXXVI. Brown caught eight passes for 121 yards in the 24-17 AFC title game victory, including an 18-yard haul off a crossing pattern on a critical third down in the fourth quarter.


    But Brown's presence at receiver — he caught a club-record 101 passes this season — doesn't amount to the half of it. Against Pittsburgh, the catches were mere body shots.

    The blows that sent the Steelers to the canvas were Brown's big plays on special teams. He sliced through the middle of the field for a 55-yard touchdown on a first-quarter punt return, then scooped up a blocked field goal in the third quarter and deftly pitched a lateral to Antwan Harris, who raced 49 yards to the end zone.

    I think there was a game at Cleveland in 1982 when Matt Cavanaugh threw for about 6 yards.
    Bledsoes rookie year in Pittsburgh he threw 5 INTS and still had a chance to win if he could QB sneak it into the end zone but he went in straight up and blew that too.

    Curtis Martin's 166 yards rushing, 3 TDs including 21 and 78(!) yards in the Pats' first home playoff game in almost two decades - a 28-3 victory over Pittsburgh in January 1997.
