Here is the game tying touchdown drive (in full).

Career highlight: 1973-74 championship, Boston Celtics

Career lowlight: traded for a washing machine

The greatest comeback in Superbowl history. Personally, my most favorite Tom Brady Superbowl.

The Falcons are still recovering from this.

Best night of my life. The emotions, the thrill, from sadness to extreme happiness. Went through everything all in a span of like 5-6 hours lol. Could barely sleep the rest of the night too because I was so giddy and ecstatic after the win  ;D

Thank you for that.  2 notables for me - the 3rd and 10 from the Atlanta 7 or 8.  Great throw - so clutch.  And of course the Edelman catch.  That was truly unbelievable. As crazy, if not more, than either the Tyree or Manningham catches.  Three red shirts right there and Edelman somehow comes up with the ball before if hits the ground. And a great angle on the play - unmistakably a catch.

Edelman catch was about the equivalent to the helmet catch. And Hightower was booming, got Matt Ryan rattled and losing the ball.

Was also excited that I had a parlay 2 on NE and the over and a 6pt teaser on ATL and the over...won all  ;D

There were a lot of improbably plays along the way but that Edelman catch was really just off the charts.

Edelman catch was phenomenal. But also, that OT drive in general was beautiful. Some big throws to Hogan. That BEAUT towards the sideline to Amendola. And then of course, the last call, "Toss to White... and he's... IN! PATRIOTS WIN THE SUPER BOWL. BRADY HAS HIS 5TH. WHAT A COMEBACK"  ;D

Side note, it is really sad what happened with Malcolm Mitchell and the injuries. He was awesome in that game too, but it looked like he was on his way to big things in the league until the injuries just ended his career abruptly. Cool thing is, he is an author now and a successful one too!

I still can't believe the Falcons didn't run the ball.  The "brilliant" mind of Shanahan couldn't run the [dang] ball.  All time coaching failure. 
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

Only really good receiver Bill ever drafted and he was derailed by injuries.  :(

Same reason why the Rams lost the 2002 Super Bowl. Arrogance of pass-first coaches who live and die by the pass.

Also, the Super Bowl in this thread will always be the all-time best Super Bowl. Never seen a performance before or since like that.
