When his night was done, he had racked up 363 yards, a new franchise postseason record, and the Patriots had scored more points than in any of the other 36 playoff games in their history.”
Tom Brady Fans favorite Brady Bunch football post today is this one.
Good to see NFL fans reading. :)
In Tom Brady News: NFL hypes up a Peyton Manning and Tom Brady game meet. Bleacher writes:
“Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos dueled on the football field for the 13th time in their illustrious careers, with each passer looking to get something of a monkey off their backs where their rivalry is concerned. (more…)
Football news USA: Calls for Tim Tebow to be the starting quarterback of the New York Jets are not going to go away. That’s especially true if the Jets continue to play embarrassing football as they did in their 34-0 stomping by the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4, writes The Bleacher Report. East Rutherford writing via EPSN says: “It’s not time for Tim Tebow,” hoping the jets stay with Mark Sanchez for a while longer. Tebow, not yet.
It’s always time for good players. Good sports teams have the best they can on the bench and on the field. That’s professional sport.
Tim Tebow picture:
Most requested football player today (USA) is Tom Brady by the way. Headlines are: Peyton Manning, in new gear, renews rivalry with Tom Brady. For Wall Street-UK types Brady’s headline is: Winners and Losers: Tom Brady Likes Jamie Dimon.
Boston Herald writes: “Quarterback Tom Brady and running back Brandon Bolden were voted as the NFL FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week for their efforts against the Bills.
Brady threw for 340 yards and three touchdowns, and Bolden ran for 137 yards and one score. The fans vote for the finalists every week to determine the winners.
Brady and Bolden also took down Broncos Peyton Manning and Willis McGahee in the voting process.” Tough competition for the awards at the top.

Brian Brownstein of the Sydney Morning Herald gives the break down in the form of guest commentary of Eli Manning‘s triumphant win over Tom Brady‘s team. Read bottom up to get the full picture of this mammoth live blog effort. Incidentally it costs $3.5 million for a 30 second ad in Super Bowl prime time.
The New York Giants have beaten the New England Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI. This is how all the drama unfolded. All times are AEDT.
2.30pm: MVP Manning has summed up the drama perfectly.
“It’s been a wild game, a wild season,” he said.
2.15pm: Giants coach Tom Coughlin is revelling in another Super Bowl triumph. That’s two for him now with the New York side.
“To have a finish like that, that goes down in history, that’s a marvelous feeling,” he said.
Giants star David Baas coudn’t contain his excitement.
“This is the American Dream,” he told SEN.
“This is about winning with your family…” he said of coach Tom Coughlin.
“I’ll play for him seven times a week and twice on Sunday.”
2.10pm: Manning is the MVP. He threw for 296 yards and one touchdown. As for Brady, he threw for 276 yards and two touchdwons, but was intercepted once.
2.00pm: Manning is being hailed the hero for the Giants. He was typically nerveless in that fourth quarter. And that pass to Mario Mannigham will go down in folklore.
1.56pm: The Patriots have now lost four Super Bowls.
1.53pm: It’s all over. GIANTS WIN. Brady launched a bomb into the end zone but it was incomplete. Giants 21 Patriots 17
1.51pm: Brady nails two incredible passes. Five seconds left. Patriots have 52 yards to go
1.49pm: Brady is sacked on third down and 10. Patriots have no time outs left, so if they don’t complete this pass (fourth down and 16) it’s all over.
1.44pm: TOUCHDOWN! The Giants remarkably tried not to score to run down the clock, but Ahmad Bradshaw was left with a huge hole to run through (left open on purpose by the Patriots) and went over. He tried to stop himself on the one-yard line but couldn’t. Tom Brady has 57 seconds to get 80 yards to rescue New England. Giants 21 Patriots 17
1.40pm: The Giants are second down and goal with 64 seconds remaining. Time out called.
1.38pm: The Giants are nearing the end zone. They have gone 70 yards in five plays.
1.33pm: Manning throws a 38-yard pass, the longest of the match. Amazing catch by Mario Manningham. The referee reviews the call and it’s good. The Giants are on the march.
1.30pm: Brady is unsuccessful on this drive and New England punt after a 48-yard drive. It’s back with the Giants. Giants 15 Patriots 17
1.25pm: Tom Brady will be hoping to put a winning margin between his Patriots team and the Giants in this drive. The spotlight is on him, but he’s certainly used to being the centre of attention. After all, he is married to Brazilian supermodel Giselle Bundchen.
The power couple aren’t short of a few bob and they’ve recently bought a $20m house in Brentwood, LA.
And it’s not only Bundchen that appears in front of the camera for money. Brady himself does a bit of modelling. Bundchen is so desperate for her husband to win today that she emailed her friends asking them to pray for him. Unfortunately for her, the New York Post got hold of it, and published it.
1.18pm: Manning throws and it’s incomplete. Giants forced to punt and the Patriots have it on their own eight-yard line. Giants 15 Patriots 17.
1.15pm: Manning calls another time out. The Giants now only have one left.
1.07pm: If the game does go to overtime the NFL’s rule - allowing both teams to have the ball if the first possession results in a field goal – will come into play.
1.03pm: INTERCEPTION! Chase Blackburn catches a Brady length-of-the-field bomb and the Giants have the ball. No Super Bowl has ever gone to overtime. Could this be the first?
1.00pm: Patriots coach Bill Belichick stands on the verge of a fourth Super Bowl win as a head coach, which would put him level with legendary former Steelers coach Chuck Noll.
He looks tetchy on the sidelines though. I hope no one gets in his way, like this photographer did.
12.55pm: Rob Ninkovich sacks Manning on third down, the third time the Giants’ quarterback has been sacked in the match.
The Giants have been forced to settle for a field goal. Giants 15 Patriots 17. That’s the end of the third quarter.
12.48pm: The Giants defence does its job and the Patriots are forced to punt from near their end zone. The New Yorkers are now in great field position on New England’s 48-yard line. Five minutes 36 seconds remain in the quarter.
12.43pm: Another break in play and some more adverts.
Elton John appears in a Pepsi commercial as a bored king. It’s not my favourite (I wonder if MAdonna will have anything to say about Elton), but Melanie Amaro, the first X-Factor winner, has an incredible voice.
12.40pm: If you want to watch Madonna’s half-time show again, check it out here.
12.38pm: Field goal for the Giants is good. Giants 12 Patriots 17. Six minutes 43 seconds left in the thrid quarter.
12.32pm: Brady is showing why he is regarded as one of the best ever quarterbacks. He controlled that drive brilliantly.
He’s a strong guy, but when he joined the Patriots he was nothing of the sort. Check out this picture taken in 2000, just before the Patriots drafted him. He was pretty scrawny.
12.29pm: TOUCHDOWN! Patriots score with their first drive of the second half. Brady picks out Aaron Hernandez and they are over. Gostkowski slots the field goal and it’s Giants 9 Patriots 17.
12.22pm: And the second half is under way. Giants 9 Patriots 10.
12.17pm: It’ll be interesting to see how the critics review Madonna’s performance. For me, Michael Jackson showed how it should be done in 1993.
12.14pm: Madonna certainly didn’t hold back with her outfit.
12.04pm: Madonna opened with Vogue and is now singing Music.
11.54am: It’ll be half-time entertainment soon, with Madonna taking centre stage. The Material Girl will be up there for 12 minutes and will give renditions of three old songs [still unknown] and her new track, Give Me All Your Luvin, which she’ll perform alongside Nicky Minaj and MIA.
The 53-year-old follows in the footsteps of the Black Eyed Peas …
11.50am: It’s half-time. Giants 9 – Patriots 10. The New York outfit dominated most of the half, but an amazing 14-play drive by the Patriots saw them steal the lead in the last minute of the second quarter. The rest of the game promises to be a nailbiter.
11.47am: TOUCHDOWN! Brady picks out Danny Woodhead. It was a 96-yard drive – the joint longest in Super Bowl history.
11.44am: Another break and another advert. David Beckham‘s piece for H&M is dominating the Twitter verse.
11.39am: Not everyone is enjoying the game. (Non-American) footballer Wayne Rooney has this to say. “Watching American football, is like watching paint dry.”
11.34am: Finally, Brady gets his arm going, finding Mr Reliable Rob Gronkowski with a 20-yard pass. Grondowski has caught 17 touchdown passes this season – the most ever by a tight end. The Patriots are making good progress up the field.
11.27am: Tom Brady will not be happy with the way the game is going. And he’s not shy of showing how he feels when things are against him. Check out this tantrum …
11.25am: Cruel blow for New York’s Travis Beckum, who has torn his anterior cruciate ligament and will be out for a long time. It’s Giants 9 Patriots 3 with 6 minutes 30 left in the half.
11.15am: The Giants have won the past two meetings between the sides, including a 24-20 victory in week nine. Andy Benoit of The New York Times explains why the New York outfit won that clash.
11.12am: The Giants are certainly in control. The Patriots will have to tighten up, with New England in danger of being exposed by Manning’s deep passing game.
11:05am: Make that Giants 9 Patriots 3 as Gostkowski gets the Patriots on the board with a 29-yard field goal.
11.00am: SCORE UPDATE: Giants 9 Patriots 0
10.55am: Brady will now get the chance to redeem himself for his earlier error, but not before another advert break.
An advert costs an unbelievable $US3.5 million for 30 seconds.
And this year advertisers have broken with tradition with more than half of the 50 or so ads that are running today available for viewing before the actual match.
10.51am: TOUCHDOWN! Manning picks out Victor Cruz and the Giants are over. Lawrence Tynes adds the extra point and the Giants lead 9-0.
10.50am: Things go from bad to worse from the Patriots as they are penalised five yards for having 12 men on the pitch. Second down and goal for the Giants.
10.48am: It’s the Giants’ 18th play of the game to the Patriots’ one. New York are on New England’s 11-yard line.
10.45am: The atmosphere sounds incredible in the 63,000 capacity stadium in Indianapolis. Although the fans may not want to eat there after this was revealed in 2009.
10.40am: Brady’s first pass is incomplete, but a penalty is called against New England for intentional grounding. It’s a SAFETY and the Giants are 2-0 up.
10.35am: Manning had made a solid start, but was then sacked twice in three plays. The Giants punt and the Patriots will start their drive on their own six-yard line.
10.31am: Manning gets first chance with ball in hand. In the last five games he has thrown 12 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
And the great thing about Manning is he never seems to lose his head. This season he has thrown an NFL record 15 fourth-quarter touchdown passes.
10.30am: Stephen Gostkowski kicks off Super Bowl XLVI. It’s collected at the one yard line and returned to the 23-yard line.
10.28am: Tom Brady has won three Super Bowls. Check out these highlights (including an amazing pass from the floor at about 1.50 into the video), which show why he’s so highly regarded.
San Francisco 49ers’ legend Joe Montana and Pittsburgh Steeler Terry Bradshaw are the only quarterbacks to have won four. Judging by these clips, Brady will be in illustrious company if his team wins today.
10.24am: It’s the coin toss at the Lucas Oil Stadium. The Patriots have won it and will kick-off.
10.20am: Kelly Clarkson has just sung the national anthem and the crowd seemed to like it. Well, it couldn’t have been worse than Christina Aguilera, who was pitchy and botched the words.

Gisele Bundchen sends friends and family an email Tim Tebow styles, asking them to pray for Tom Brady before the Super Bowl. New York does not seem to get Gisele’s modelesque Tebow humorous nod, if you’re going by the tabloids from The Big Apple.
The Amazonian supermodel emailed: “Dear sweet friends and family. This Sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life.”
“I feel Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time.”
“He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream.”
“So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he feels confident, healthy and strong before this Super Bowl. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this Sunday.”
The Hollywood Gossip wrote: [Puh-leaze!]… Does Melinda Gates pray for Bill‘s continued affluence?
Brady is set to be under a lot of pressure from the Giants and Eli Manning and Victor Cruz.
Despite what Giants fans are writing in the NY rags, I thought Gisele was cute, playing a new version of “American football wifey.” Too funny.
New. New. New at Indianapolis this big Super Bowl weekend. I wonder if New Hampshire will turn up in full force too.

Guest football commentary from Barry Svrluga for the Washington Post goes like this:
“FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – There may have been a time – in the middle of the week, in the hours before kickoff, even early in the second quarter, though that’s a stretch – when it seemed feasible that Tim Tebow and his Denver Broncos could have beaten Tom Brady and his New England Patriots.
Then this AFC divisional playoff game started. Less than two minutes in, the Patriots were up by a touchdown. Less than six minutes later, they were up by two. Over the final 2 1/2 minutes of a freakishly good first half, they scored two more to go up by 28 points.
All that pregame dissection of Tebow’s throwing motion and Tebow’s beliefs and Tebow’s leadership and Tebow’s deficiencies seemed downright silly, because the vastly superior player, Brady, and the clearly superior team, New England, won in a never-in-doubt romp, 45-10, in which Brady tied an NFL playoff record with six touchdown passes.
There’s one man whose football career is lifting up America. That has to be: Tim Tebow and his story of Amazing Grace. Very Michael Jones of New Zealand – same story! More on Tebow at ESPN Sports Center.

ESPN‘s Jerry Greene devotes a few column inches to get to the bottom of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and teenage pop singer Justin Bieber‘s recent hair feud that’s been dubbed “hair apparent.”
Writes Greene: “Unless you have been stuck in a Chilean mine, you probably know Brady has allowed his hair to grow into wavy locks that make him look almost as pretty as his wife. You may also know that Bieber, a 16-year-old singing/songwriting Canadian, called out Brady in a video posted last week.
Bieber raps: “Sacked like a sacker. Call up Mr. Brady. Tell him to leave his hair to the guy who sings ‘Baby.’”
Greene goes on write in sports analysis of football: “
The guy who should issue a video rebuttal is Brady’s coach, Bill Belichick. Consider that it was Brady who led the comeback Sunday that gave Belichick another win despite trading away deep threat Randy Moss. Brady completed 16 of 24 passes over the fourth quarter and overtime for 155 yards and a touchdown.
Can’t you hear Belichick singing: “Hey, listen, kid, we don’t need your sass. Mr. Brady keeps saving my …” and so on.”

According to Melissa Noble, multimedia supermodel of America, Tyra Banks has signed a three year book deal with Random House to bring Modelland to an audience.
Fox News reports the book series (and Tyra’s first foray as a novelist) “[is] for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their lives … and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too,” Banks wrote on her website describing her new book.
According to Michaek K, Modelland’s novel premise is that it’s a ”fantasy book that takes readers into a magical world where superhuman supermodels called “intoxibellas” learn to perfect their powers at an exclusive academy.”
People Magazine reports: “It’s my novel called Modelland (pronounced “Model Land”) that takes you to a fantastical place you’ve never seen, or heard about, or read about before … Where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye.
“Modelland has always been a part of my mind and my heart. I’m excited that you’ll be able to read about this magical world that’s been living in my dreams for so many years.”
Alright… the world of entertainment since Twilight Saga‘s popular success is going the route of novels, then film, then dvd, then TV. Tyra’s on the bandwagon. Smart girl. Tyra Banks as a literary fiction author… wow… who would have thought?
Alright America–taking a note from Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen‘s uber popular celebrity marriage (as well as Modelland being greenlit by Random perhaps means that… we now need a novel about footballers with super powers too… for a future cross over series. Novelist wanted for that job please.
