We know Marshawn is going to run the ball, so we throw in a bigger package. I get on the field, and I know what&#8217;€™s coming. Everyone knows what&#8217;€™s coming. The fans are going crazy. You see people setting up ropes around the field so that nobody can jump out from the stands when the game ends. It&#8217;€™s coming down to the last couple of plays.</em></p> <p><em>I&#8217;€™m lined up, the ball gets snapped to Marshawn, and he comes right my way. There&#8217;€™s a gap right there, and he&#8217;€™s running through it. Hightower hits him, and Marshawn starts to stumble right towards the end zone. I shed my block and dive over to him &#8216;€” right as he&#8217;€™s trying to stretch the ball over the goal line. There&#8217;€™s a collision. The dust settles. And I&#8217;€™m laying there staring at the ball. Stopped at the one-yard line.</em></p> <p><em>The rest is history. &#8230;<br /> </em></p> <p><em>To get traded to New England was just unbelievable. I had heard about the culture of the team &#8216;€” the intense preparation and complete focus &#8212; but I didn&#8217;€™t really understand what that meant until the first week I was there. New England prepares with the expectation of winning. You go there as a player and you know the tradition they have, the players they have and the mindset they have. Anything other than winning is simply not an option. And I can see how they&#8217;€™ve maintained such success over a long period of time. When I arrived, I just had to follow everyone&#8217;€™s lead. The organization runs like a well-oiled machine.</em></p> <p>I couldn&#8217;t be happier that Akeem Ayers delivered this little piece of Patriots Porn. I&#8217;d suggest you read the whole thing because he offers a lot of insight into his personal journey, how he came to New England and the way he was received by Mr. Kraft and others. But I pretty much served up the money shots here.</p> <p>I&#8217;ve watched the play he describes here, the penultimate play of the game-clinching defensive stand &#8211; almost as many times as I&#8217;ve watched the Malcolm Butler interception. And while Dont&#8217;a Hightower got credit for the tackle <a href="http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/201502010sea.htm" target="_blank">in the box score</a>, it was a group effort by <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/football/new-england-patriots.htm">the Pats</a>&#8216; defense. <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/football/vince-wilfork.htm">Vince Wilfork</a> got a push on Max Unger that forced <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/football/marshawn-lynch.htm">Marshawn Lynch</a> to make a cut. <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/football/pat-chung.htm">Pat Chung</a> made first contact and tripped Lynch up. And of course Ayers and Hightower were there to stop him short of the goal line.</p> <p><span id="more-4314"></span>It was an amazing stop that will forever be overshadowed by the world-changer that came next in that way that no one remembers what the hell happened on the Apollo 10 mission. But without it, we&#8217;re listening to people say the Patriots haven&#8217;t won a <a href="http://media.weei.com/football/super-bowl.htm" class="r_lapi">Super Bowl</a> in 11 years. So thanks to Ayers for the play and for shedding light on it. With the season starting in nine days and the Patriots &#8220;America&#8217;s Game&#8221; plus &#8220;Do Your Job&#8221; premiering between now and then, I can&#8217;t think of a better way to kick off a week&#8217;s worth of looking back at the championship.

Yes, I agree it&#8217;s an improvement over the gawdawful, viral, <a href="http://thornography.weei.com/sports/boston/2015/08/13/best-internet-memes-from-tom-brady-courtroom-sketches/" target="_blank">meme-worthy first one</a>. But praising her for the improvement is like taking your kid out for an ice cream to celebrate him bringing up his grade from a zero to a D-.</p> <p>I understand we live in a participation trophy world where mediocrity is rewarded and failure is excused. But Jane had one job: Capture Tom Brady&#8217;s preternatural handsomeness in pencil and charcoal. And she crashed and burned utterly. And this latest attempt from Monday&#8217;s court hearing is really just OK. Even the one she did in between court appearances, while a marked improvement, still doesn&#8217;t make her a Rembrandt, a Da Vinci or a Bob Ross.</p> <p><span id="more-4304"></span></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/YLO7tCdBVrA" width="600" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>So no matter how much she whines and begs for our approval, let&#8217;s cancel the parade and admit that with all she has to work with in terms of Tom&#8217;s perfect bone structure, Ph-balanced hair and dreamy eyes, we deserve a lot better than what she&#8217;s produced. I&#8217;m a forgiving man and can accept a lot of people&#8217;s shortcomings. But just not when it comes to Tom Brady&#8217;s looks.</p> <p><em>@JerryThornton1</em></p> <p><a href="http://bit.ly/1FaCm7U"><img class="alignleft wp-image-2070" src="http://thornography.weei.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/DraftKings.png " alt="DraftKings" width="50" height="50" /></a><em> Kick off this football season with the biggest fantasy football contest ever on DraftKings!
