Awesome thread! 3rd & 14 in SB 49 is my all time favorite play of the Brady era.

I would also add the Amendola first play of OT catch of SB51 to the list. That pass was a thing of beauty.

That pass to Amendola was an absolute dime.

The final drive in Super Bowl 36 is an easy go to, but to me, he became TFB after the fumble in the Tuck Rule game. From that moment on, he was at another level. If I had to pick one play... one out of the whole career? Wow. The super Bowl pass to Gronk vs. Seattle, the bomb to Randy vs Jete in '07, the bomb to Troy in Miami in OT, and any of the 3rd and longs to Jules vs. KC in the AFCCG all are worthy. I don't think I want to pick just one. Oh, and I'll add one to the mix, too:

Good list. The one to Gronk in Denver stands out to me even in a losing effort but the perfect accurate pass to Thompkins in the Saints comeback was unbelievable too.

The Denver one stands out because I was so convinced the Patriots were dead and could do nothing, and when it happened I thought, "Brady is even more unbelievable than I thought. Which is impossible."

I remember thinking the same thing. Like, this guy isn’t just the GOAT, he’s some kind of different species. There were two Gronk plays, both on fourth down. First was the deep pass. Second was truly like a magic trick. Everyone is covered, intense pressure, and he lobs it into the back of the end zone, splitting a double team on Gronk, like an off speed pitch causing a defender to overrun it. Just absurd.

all great memories...I'm a sadistic pr!ck though...my favorite was when that bigmouth Ryan whatever his name was, playing on the Squealers, ran his mouth before that playoff game...Brady tortured him like a rat in a burlap bag, jabbing him the entire game with that ferret stick...loved his shell shocked face when the game was over.

There is a line in the graphical novel, "Watchmen" in reference to a powerful character named Dr. Manhattan that goes like this:

"Superman exists and he is an American"

That is what I think of Brady's entire body of work so far...

"The GOAT exists and he is a Patriot".......

This is probably not what you're looking for, especially with all the plays that demonstrated talent or will, but it's my favorite Brady play of all time:

The final kneel down in Super Bowl 49

For me, nothing comes close to LI. Now, that second half was like a full team mind meld but the throws he made on the drive to tie the game then in over time. I remember thinking after the over time coin toss, Atlanta is smoked. McCourty had the weirdest look on his face when we won the toss. It was a look like y’all are through

I agree. I originally was going to make a post about your favorite TB12 game, but then I thought it would be too obvious with 51 as the clear winner and 49 getting a lot of love too. But they were so epic they leave other epic games in the dust. Then I thought perhaps favorite drive, but same ultimate problem with late drives in 51 and 49 dominating, though there were a few more (@ KC, other SBs, Jacksonville.). I felt by doing greatest play it was more interesting because then you can really focus on an entire library of moments rather than the sheer emotional pull of his 2-3 most legendary performances.

It’s exactly what I’m looking for. To add something more, another perspective. Doesn’t have to be the most spectacular pass; it’s just your own favorite play for whatever reason you choose. I remember the emotional release of that play, after a 10-year run of broken hearts, finally seeing the clock go to zero and feeling absolute relief and joy. Not so much anxious euphoria like the Butler pick, but the pure joy and surreal feeling that it actually happened. I also recall prior to that TB12 chewing out his teammates to lineup and stop celebrating prior to the victory formation, and the classy handshake with Sherman. The kneel down was beautiful.

Good addition, Deus.

If I had to pick one play, I couldn’t do it. Maybe his rushing touchdown in the snow bowl. It wasn’t epic but it started this up

Good call. Should have started the post with the Snow Bowl/ Tuck Rule game. That was the real birth of TB12. His passion jumping into the endzone and firing up the team. Amazing that a game like that gets overlooked, which was an all-time classic game with TB12 completing third down after third down passes in an actual blizzard. Manning would have done that (lololol!!!)

I was stunned watching that game. That’s the craziest weather game I’ve ever seen with the fog bowl at soldier field being a close second. No one could even see anything.
Manning was a good q.b but I never saw him do things that were kinda impossible

There is one weather game that will forever stick in my mind as crazier than that one. And it was the wind game in Buffalo several years ago. The temperature was 55-60, but there was a consistent 40 mph wind, with gusts of 60 mph. I remember Gost trying to kick extra points and the ball would end up flying into the stands through the sidelines (not even the end zone). Brady punted on 3rd down that game and the ball rolled like a watermelon for 25 yards after it landed. The special teams guys looked like they were in a Curling competition as they ushered the ball downfield and pinned the Bills.

Take a knee for Lombardi is the best play in the book, to be sure.

Long bomb to Branch vs 15-1 (reg season) Steelers - the destruction of it all and the realization that 2001 wasn't the only time we were getting championshipSSSSSS.

15 years later and that victory is still just so satisfying.

That one was pretty crazy too. I forgot about that
