Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey goes missing

While the Tom Brady vs Joe Montana debate is a never-ending one, many analysts feel the New England Patriots star solidified his position as the greatest-ever after Sunday's performance.

Bill Belichick '75, head coach of the New England Patriots, lead his team to the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history on February 5, beating the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 34-28 in OT-the first time an overtime period was ever needed in the 51-year history of the NFL's annual championship game. So how did Patriots Nation celebrate one of greatest Super Bowls? Final viewership totals are expected later on Monday.

Noting the late comeback, the President congratulated the Patriots and his "friend" quarterback Tom Brady, tweeting, "What an awesome comeback and win by the Patriots".

"But I want to say to our fans, our brilliant coaching staff, our fantastic players who are so spectacular, this is unequivocally the sweetest I am proud to say, for the fifth time, we are all Patriots".

But that means nothing the day after the big game, once the opportunity of a lifetime has been squandered like a winning lottery ticket that was inadvertently thrown away. They set such a great example for me.

President Donald Trump tweeted after the game "Tom Brady, (team owner) Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners". It's what happens when you play in the Super Bowl.

"But a lot has transpired during the last two years, and I don't think that needs any explanation".

With the Falcons leading 28-20, the quarterback conceded a costly sack on the 23-yard line that took his team out of range for a field goal which would have put Atlanta two scores clear. I even saw statements on how the National Football League is fixed, the rules were in Brady's favour, and that Russian Federation helped decide the victory.

You can say what you want about Tom Brady, and there are many who will continue to vilify and diminish his remarkable achievements, no matter how dumb it sounds when holding his resume up against anyone else.

He then called time on the questioning, declaring that he needed to have a shower.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, the man who upheld that ban, was booed as he handed the Lombardi Trophy over to Kraft, who referenced the issue when he addressed supporters.

When asked if it was his best catch ever: "I don't know", Edelman said.

"Two years ago we won our fourth Super Bowl down in Arizona and I told our fans that was the sweetest one of all".

Brady then led the Patriots on a 75-yard scoring drive in eight plays on the opening possession of overtime.

In typical Boston fashion, players and other team officials will ride in duck boats, the World War II-era amphibious vehicles that are popular with tourists.
