Eagles preparing for long halftime break during Super Bowl

Tom Brady has chance to make history…again.

Gronkowski’s enormous size and strength provide him with a major advantage over his opponents, and the Eagles understand the importance of keeping the football out of his hands, or he’s going to make the defense pay for it. That’s just part of it”, said Brady.”The hard part of me still playing is my kids are getting older and I’m not available to them.

Brady got the ball to their own 49-yard-line with five seconds left, which meant there was just enough time for one play – a hail mary into the end zone.

Before Brady passed Montana last season with the historic comeback victory over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI, Montana generally had the nod over Pittsburgh’s Terry Bradshaw, a four-time Super Bowl victor, and Green Bay’s Bart Starr, a five-time National Football League title victor.

Given the time of year, it would be surprising if there weren’t at least a few Patriots players under the weather. Every time they appear to be vulnerable or teetering, they seem to get up off the mat even stronger than before to deliver a knockout punch. I wish, as a team, we could’ve put him in better position to be successful. Only the New York Giants, with wins over the Patriots in Super Bowls XLII (42) and XLVI (46), have been able to infect seemingly impenetrable system software.

Smith said after the adjustments that are made, players might spend the time listening to music, watching film on their iPads or even playing games on their phones. After all, it’s not every year that the Eagles make the Super Bowl, and the entire City of Brotherly Love will be putting its hopes behind Nick Foles, 29, and the Eagles’ defensive line.

“It’s going to be a great game, and certainly one of the great matchups will be Tom against our defense”. Defensive end Brandon Graham played 65 percent of the time and led the team with 9.5 sacks. “I wish they could all share in this.’ Or, if they are still here, they’re all gonna share in it together”.

“All I can tell you is, we’re coming home with that trophy”, Philadelphia wide receiver Alshon Jeffery said. “It’s about us, it’s not about them”. He knows pressuring Brady without having to blitz is the key to success.

“Just try to deal with what we got”.

“You can never get too high or too low”.

“All those guys are similar in that they’re not one-trick ponies”, Schwartz said of Cox, Philly’s top-paid player at $11.5 million a year. That’s named for the light poles Philadelphia police covered with Crisco before the championship game to prevent fans from climbing them.

Instead, they took Giovanni Carmazzi out of Hofstra with 65th overall pick, one of six quarterbacks that went ahead of Brady before the Patriots snagged him in the sixth round with the 199th pick. There is all manner of betting speculation around Justin Timberlake being the featured halftime show performer, 14 years after the infamous “Nipplegate” incident with Janet Jackson at Super Bowl XVIII.
