As soon as anyone around here finds out you're from Canada, what's the first thing they say? You've surely heard of Minnesota Nice by now, and one iteration could be called the Minnesota Shrug.
Brady also spoke of his desire for the Patriots to lead from the front against the Eagles, rather than come from behind as they were forced to do when they beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28, having trailed 28-3, last year. "So my thing is, Malcolm is a leader, and I'm here to show support as a white athlete". The Eagles had recorded nine consecutive non-winning seasons before Vermeil arrived in 1976, and it wasn't until his fifth season that they reached the Super Bowl, winning 12 regular-season games and a division title.
Media day for Super Bowl 52 did not disappoint. A once-downtrodden franchise saw a cause for celebration.
"Knowing Bill Belichick - he grew and I grew, and I thought I would be ready for him", Kraft said in the documentary.
Both teams head back to practice on Wednesday. Patty LaBelle was the singer.
"Never safe. You still gotta put the work in".
Who was that last team to get just one penalty? "Play the way we've been playing and do our best".
"Just being here and learning what it takes to be a champion", Lewis said. If coaching today, he said, he probably would ask to cancel the party.
Doug Pederson knows what it's like to be booed as a player, as an assistant, and once more with feeling by the same fanbase before getting the chance to prove his third hire is a charm.
If fans in Indianapolis are leery of Josh McDaniels because of his shaky first stint as a head coach in Denver, he has an important ally vouching for him. I think there was some pretty hard core rudeness you want to say with how they treated the Vikings fans. Yes, I would. But we're not going to make it more than it is. "They had a fine football team".
The Eagles are still waiting for theirs.
The Patriots gave him - and Amendola and Chung - what they've always wanted: an opportunity.
He said that is because there is respect across the board for what backup quarterback Nick Foles has accomplished since Carson Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14. He had two other real shots, reaching the NFC Championship game two other times, once with the Packers and once with the Vikings.
The Patriots have been riding that cycle of success for almost two decades, so it may be tough for average National Football League fans to remember the lean years in Foxboro. He acknowledged that history can be a force in itself.
"There's been some good-sized five-figure bets coming in [on the Patriots]", Avello said.
The 40-year-old is well past the age when quarterbacks tend to lose their efficiency and despite previously admitting that he wanted to play well into his 40s, Brady knows he can only win the battle with Father Time for so long. "They've got a good team". During that season, the Patriots were caught videotaping the signals of the New York Jets' defensive coaches' during one game. Belichick said he felt that.
