Superbowl XLII Notes:

I thought I would pass along a couple of great articles regarding the Tom Brady. The Superbowl hero's path to icon status is chronicled in this piece by CNNSI's Lee Jenkins called "Self-made Man" and an ESPN article by Greg Garber called "Almost Perfect". They both show how Brady had his setbacks each step of the way but just kept working harder and never gave up his dream.

  • Also,'s Dr. Z breaks down the Giants' and Pats' personell to show who has the edge position by position. Quick recap; the Pats dominate on Offense while the Giants have the edge on Defense.
  • ESPN has an interesting article on Ernie Adams . The mystery man behind Bill Belichick and the Patriots' success.
  • On Saturday of Superbowl weekend it will be announced whether former Patriots' Linebacker Andre Tippett will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Here outlines a good case for his enshrinement.
  • Finally, it seems Spygate won't die. In this NY Times article, Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania now wants NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to explain why the confiscated tapes were destroyed. Seems ridiculous on so many levels.
