This season was not the best for the New England Patriots. After suffering some unexpected losses during the regular season, most people wrote them off. They said that the Patriots didn’t stand a chance at another Super Bowl appearance. And yet here we are, only a day away from seeing the Patriots play in Super Bowl LIII.
The team has shown time and time again that they are able to make the impossible possible. Since the Brady-Belichick era, it’s better not to count on the Patriots losing when the stakes are high.
Brady has been one of the most consistent players on the Patriots. However, his success is partly the doing of the offensive line. The offensive players are the ones charged with the responsibility of protecting him. Brady came forward recently to praise them:
“What they’ve done this year, from Trent [Brown] coming in in a trade from San Francisco; Joe Thuney in his third year and starting three Super Bowls; David Andrews, another Georgia Bulldog. … But then one of my great friends, Shaq [Mason], at Georgia Tech, where we’re practicing; and Marcus [Cannon] has kind of manned that right tackle position for as well as he had; and Ted Karras, who doesn’t play a lot, but is a great guy, a great teammate. They’re just a great group. They work so well together. They got the best O-line coach [Dante Scarnecchia] in history coaching them who holds those guys to such a high standard every day. They’re the heart and soul of our offense.”
With such a successful offensive line, Brady is set to enter Super Sunday with a high level of confidence of the five players in front of him. He added:
“Counting on those guys when we need it most. And, obviously, going into this game against the best D-line in football is a big challenge and that’s what these games are all about.”
We can’t wait to see the Patriots in the Super Bowl tomorrow!
