    Since I have a little time off before the holidays, I am watching the 2001 SB DVD. It really is amazing how much like 2001 this season is turning out to be. That team did not have as many injuries as this team, but there was the same inconsistency we are seeing this year. Also, I cannot believe how young Tom Brady looks! And it is nice to see BB wearing something other than that ratty hoodie! He is in serious need of a fashion intervention.......

    I always get a little teary during Tommy's final drive in the Superbowl and when Adam nails the game winning kick. Anyone else still get that way??

    Actually, I sometimes feel like I did during that drive. I push the fact that it was sucessful into the back of my mind and act like it was happening real-time.

    I remember it like it was yeterday. Madden saying to play for OT. Tom leading the team down field. Key catches by Brown, JR, Wiggin. Adam coming in. The warm wet feeling in my pants- the puddle on the floor by my feet. The ache in my head when I jumped and hit the ceiling as the ball was going through the uprights. The EMT standing over me with the heart defibulator.

    I remember it all.

    The first one is always the most memorable.....

    For the Boston Sports Fan - purchase the DVD: City of Champions. A video montage set to some good music - the highs, the lows, the championships, the chokes, the legends...excellent, excellent DVD. I highly recommend it.

    I was living in Florida at the time and when the kick went through, I called my mom here in Massachusetts and the phone did not even ring, she had just picked it up to call me! What a great day! Plus the fact that everyone I knew and/or worked with thought the Rams would win.....that was sweet!

    The one downer is seeing Ty and Lawyer.......makes me realize how much I miss them!

    I watch that DVD all the time. I get pissed off every time I see the Steelers guy intentionally injure Tom Brady by going for his knees.

    You mean the game where they said that team couldn't be stopped especially in a Dome!

    Uh...no--during the AFC playoff game where Bledsoe had to come in for Brady. But i know what you are talking about--i always say "You dont know how prophetic that statement is Ricky..."

    I love it. I loved that season. I still remember after Tommy was drafted his first preseason game was here in Detroit. I went down there with some guys from our team, and after the game we met up with Chris Floyd and Tommy in the tunnel. Just a rookie trying to make a roster. Then, just the next year, we were watching Mo Lewis knock Drew out of the game, and Tommy came in and just blew up from there. I literally cried after Vinatieri hit the kick to win the Super Bowl. It was definitely party time in Ann Arbor.

    I was hung over watching the Superbowl and I will never forget the moment that went through the uprights. I just fell on the floor and screamed at the top of my lungs. Then I called my dad.

    No Superbowl has ever quite gotten to me the way that one did. The whole September 11 "Patriots" thing, the announcing them as a team, the amazing halftime show, even the Budweiser horses commercial where the horses bow to NYC (where I was living at the time), the fact that NOBODY thought they could do it....the entire moment in time can't ever be matched for me.

    My ex-fiancee's mother threw a Super Bowl party and they were all Dolphin fans.......you wouldn't have know it by the way they were all cheering for the Rams. The better the Patriots did, the more quiet they all got. When Ty intercepted Warner and ran it back, people started leaving!!! HA!!!

    wonderful!

    Bill's Girl inspired me and I'm now watching 3 games to Glory 3....the playoff game against the Colts. I just can't believe the Colts were favored in this game....it's just so bizarre to watch the footage of Gillette, snow falling, etc. and to hear the voiceover say the Colts were heavily favored to win. I remember it of course, but still.....just unbelievable, particularly now that we all know the outcome.

    One of my favorite 3GTG1. The snow bowl, what a game, the Steelers game, the run back by Bingo that practicallyput the game away in the 2nd quarter. and of course SB XXXVI and the greatest show on turf. So much about that season was so magical. My personal favorite, but then you always remember your first time......

    Yeah, I was the only Pats fan......it was great! But not as great as being back in MA when we won SB 38 and I was surrounded by Patriots fans!

    I absolutely love when Lawyer grabs BB after the game winning kicks and starts throwing him around and Lonie Paxton doing snow angels on the turf!

    I really do wish they would redo the first 3GTG much like the last two with extra and so forth.
    I still get chills watching the field goal and that great call by Gil Santos, when it went through I just could not believe that the Pats, the team I loved more then any other sports team had won after all the crappy years and close calls.

    It was an awesome thrill !!! After 26 years of following and supporting the Pats(since 1976). They finally did it !!! If someone would have told me that we would have won 3 of the next 4, I would have thought they were crazy. I was happy with that one (SB XXXVI), especially living here in New Orleans, less than 5 miles from the Superdome. (Could not get tickets, but I tried :( ) The Pats first three Super Bowl trips were here in New Orleans (1985, 1996, & 2001 seasons). I was a senior in high school when we got thumped in SB XX, against the Bears. Hell, I was happy we won the AFCCG, against the Dolphins in Miami, no less :rocker:


    One thing did tick me though. It looked like the refs were trying everything they could to get the Rams back in the game. Remember when we were up 17-3 with about 8 minutes left, and we returned that fumble 99 yards for a TD? That would have put us up 24-3, and for all intents and purposes, GAME OVER. But to me that holding call was BS, and could have been called either way, or not at all unless someone saw what I did not. That was a huge momentum swing, since they scored two plays later to cut it 17-10. But in the end, the boys would not be denied.

    OH NO. Lets PRAY that the INSANE RAMS FAN doesn't see this post. He will go ape on us and point us to stlouisrams.net where he goes on and on about how the Patriots cheated and such. We really don't need another thread of rants from him.

    McGinnest grabbed Faulk and gave him a bear hug. It was clearly holding.

    I will have to take a look at it again. You could be right, but from the quick glimpse I saw of it, it looked like it could have called either way. Technically, you could call holding every down, I guess. That penalty definitely came at a bad time. I am just glad it did not cost us in the end. ;)

    It's actually a fun quesion : Knowing what we know now are you happy the penalty was called ?

    One one hand, it would have ruled to win in a blowout. On the other hand, we wouldn't have had Brady's first big SB drive nor would we have had Adam's first SB winning kick.

    I like the way that it ended, making Adam, Tommy and BB hero's at the end. BUT, it also opened the floodgates for other to accuse us of just getting lucky or to offer that silly 9/11 conspiracy. It was the same with SB38 we got "lucky" when Kasey shanked that kickoff out of bounds. And again last year when McNabb went brain dead in the 4th quarter. Outsiders have come up with many excuses/reasons we should not have won anything.

    I often pull out the 3 3GTG videos or the 3 SB videos when I'm bored. I even watch the 2002 highlight video every now and again. It's fun to go back and see history repeated when history has been so kind. And it also makes you appreciate certain players more when you go back and see how many big plays they had that helped win Championships. Guys like Faulk are easy to overlook until you go back and watch those tapes. Good stuff.

    JR Redmond in that final drive was huge. His struggle for the 1st down and then to stop the clock was the key play of the drive IMHO. Wiggins is the other player, with the final few yards before Brady spiked the ball to stop the clock. Both have moved on, but I always think how these 2nd tier players were critical to that final drive and the win.

    Moments I love from the Snow bowl:

    The deflected ball on the sidelines which is tipped by one player (Patten? perhaps), and the ball bounces up to Wiggins (i think), who gets both feet down, and continues the drive.

    Also, the ball which was thrown to the right sideline, it looked like it was intended for one player, who dove in the direction of the ball, and there was a let down, because everyone thought Tommy missed the mark, but he really just hit the other reciever in that direction.

    Favorite 3GTG games:

    I: snow bowl -- the kick and the stuff of Zack Crockett especially

    II: the super bowl against Carolina -- one of the best ever

    III: colts game and steelers game

    I still think SB36 was not a great game except the ending (that's a big "except").

    My favorite year was last year -- giving up 3 to the #1 offense and scoring 41 against the #1 defense should go down as one of the great playoff accomplishments -- up there with the back to back shutouts and 10 points allowed by the 85 Bears.

    Mine too. Last year's playoff games (SB was not so great, but oh well), were the most fun I had as a football fan. First, the Colts only score 3 against us, the offensive juggernaut, record-breaking Colts who were going to smoke us....3 points. And it should have been zero, because those three points were ONLY because we dropped an interception. Then we go INTO Pittsburgh and run up 41 against the #1 defense...the 15-1 (16-1 at the time), Big Ben can do no wrong Steelers. I remember listening to sports talk radio the next day and the best comment I heard was from Tony Kornheiser. While his guests were doing their usual analysis, all Tony had to say was "The Patriots are SO good. The Patriots are SO, SO good." And really, that was all there was to say after those performances.

    for me the greatest moment was the Super Bowl win against Carolina.

    that whole season had been nuts. our defense was so freakin good it was scary.

    during the Texans game, my wife went into labor. after Tommy pulled out the win (that was miraculous), we went to the hospital and later that night, my son Brady was born.

    the team didn't lose for the rest of that season. the Carolina game was SO intense, SO hard fought it was just nuts. Guys were breaking their arms, Delhomme was playing like Unitas, Tommy was brilliant, save that one interception and even the coaches made a bad mistake by squib kicking before half time.

    That game was just crazy. When we were down 22-21, I was freaking out.

    But Tommy wasn't. He just led the team down the field for an 8 point touchdown. Panthers tie it up, no problem.

    Tommy was the MAN. And Adam came through on his 3rd FG, when we really needed him to.

    THE greatest game I've ever seen.

    OMG, you named your son Brady? I love it!!! What a great memory and a cool story to tell him when he gets older.

    I want to name any future son I might have after Brady too.:)
