Tom Brady has a complicated history with the University of Michigan. He was estranged from the school he loves for more than a decade after graduation. Why? He felt unappreciated. He showed up as a freshman seventh on the depth chart and was redshirted. Then Brady was a back-up for two years. And despite a 20-5 record his final two seasons when he was finally named the starter, Michigan coach Lloyd Carr kept Brady looking over his ...

Tom Brady became mentally tough at Michigan. He felt slighted from the day he arrived to the final game of his college career. He was even benched during an overtime victory against Alabama while throwing for 369 yards and four touchdowns. Brady did enjoy Michigan but the five years seemed like twenty in football years. Brady then suffered as he waited to hear his name called at the 2001 NFL draft. Finally, in the middle of the six...

In game 2 of Tom Brady’s second season with the New England Patriots, starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe suffered internal bleeding after a hit and almost died. The next man up was Brady, who had thrown three total passes in his rookie season—and completed only one. The Patriots were 0-2 at that point in the 2001 NFL season. Would they win a single game? Yes, in fact they would go on to win 14 games, including Super Bowl XXXVI.

Tom Brady saved Bill Belichick's job. Bill Belichick was 5-11 in his first season as the coach of the New England Patriots. Belichick was 0-2 in his second season when Drew Bledsoe was injured so badly that both his football career and his life was on the line. Belichick knew he was on a short leash—or thin ice—and could be fired at the end of the season. Not many knew it at the time, but Belichick wanted to open the season wit...

The streets of New Orleans in the week leading up to the St. Louis Rams-New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVI were red, white, and blue. It was about five months after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. It was the most patriotic Super Bowl ever, so maybe it was appropriate the Patriots won. It was also when the football world found out Tom Brady was for real—as he led an amazing last-minutes drive for one of the greates...

The rivalry between Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts (and then the Denver Broncos) was so intense that it carried over to games played between Brady and Peyton’s little brother Eli Manning—and not just in the Super Bowl.

In Game 1 of the 2007 season NFL security busted up the New England Patriots' espionage ring—what came to be known as Spygate. Bill Belichick was having his film crew tape the opposing team's defensive signals.
