Who's to blame for Patriots' Super Bowl loss?
If sports talk radio is any indication, Brady's play is the biggest lightning rod. Rather than preach, we'll give you the facts. Brady completed 16 consecutive passes spanning the second and third quarters, breaking a Super Bowl record held by Joe Montana. Brady was 27 of 41 overall for 276 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. That one pick came on a ball that was underthrown to an open Rob Gronkowski. Brady should probably also share some of the blame for a pass that was behind Wes Welker. In addition, intentional grounding on the first play of the game cost the Patriots a safety and two points.
