NY Daily News - Patriots fans packed the lower level of Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Sunday to give the AFC champions a raucous Super sendoff. But it was nothing compared to the party Tom Brady expects to have back in New England next week. “We’re going down there for one reason,” Brady said before the Patriots boarded their charter flight to Super Bowl XLVI. “We’re going to give it our best and hopefully we’ll have a lot more people at our party next weekend.” And with that, the cocky QB sent the estimated crowd of 25,000 into a frenzy, sending the Patriots off to their fifth Super Bowl in the last 11 years. It’s their first trip back, of course, since Super Bowl XLII, when the Giants spoiled the undefeated Patriots’ party plans with a shocking 17-14 win.
I wonder what it's like to promise 25,000 fans a victory celebration and then put up a 28.7 QB rating in the 4th quarter of a Super Bowl.
