Episode Date
E09: Spygate, The Schmuck, and Near Perfection
2095
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. The Patriots went on to football's first 16-0 regular season record and it was only one of the greatest underdog performances in NFL history by Eli Manning's New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII—including the famed Helmet Catch by David Tyree—that stopped Tom Brady and the Patriots from cementing the title of Greatest Team Ever.

E08: Porterhouse or New York Strip?
2392
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. Peyton once asked the New York Giants defense, through Eli, to prevent Tom Brady from breaking his single season TD record. In return, if the mission was accomplished, the Giants defense requested Peyton pick up the check at an expensive Manhattan steakhouse.

E07: Brady vs. Manning
2635
Tom Brady was a draft day afterthought as the 199th overall pick when he went to the New England Patriots in 2000. Peyton Manning was born into NFL royalty, destined to be the #1 overall pick and greatness on the Indianapolis Colts and then the Denver Broncos. This unlikely pairing of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning produced the greatest rivalry in NFL football history, and one that many feel shaped the modern NFL in many ways. The two star quarterbacks met head-to-head 17 times, with Brady holding an 11–6 edge over Manning. Manning did win the last three times they met in the AFC Championship Game, but Brady ultimately leads the rivalry with 6–2 in Super Bowl victories. 🗣 We want to hear from you.

E06: We Are All Patriots
2341
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 greatest NFL football upsets ever and was named Super Bowl MVP for the first time. 🗣 We want to hear from you.

E05: Saving Coach Belichick
2455
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 with the quarterback that was once a 6th round afterthought as his starting quarterback: Tom Brady. Brady owed Belichick a lot for drafting and developing him and Brady paid him back by saving his coaching career. 🗣 We want to hear from you.

E04: Tom Takes The Torch
2047
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. 🗣 We want to hear from you.

E03: Tom Brady’s Draft Day Blues
2261
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 sixth round, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots chose Tom Brady—the future winningest quarterback in NFL history and the first to win six Super Bowl titles—as the 199th overall pick. 🗣 We want to hear from you.

E02: The Michigan Man
2381
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 shoulder at local phenom Drew Henson. 🗣 We want to hear from you.
