Is that timeline true?? DMC texts BB "get JMac" - BB doesn't reply for 40-50 min - then BB calls saying we traded from Jmac?

That text created the 2nd or 3rd best play in SB LIII

I'm guessing the idea didn't just pop into BB's head after getting that text.
Probably not, but I'm liking the story of BB seeing the text, picking up the phone and calling Cleveland GM Dorsey and being hey, 7th for JMac.
Dorsey - sweeten it
BB - 6th for JMac, but toss me a 7th also.
Dorsey - deal

BB rings Dmac - done

I think history will wind up with the JMac play number one. I don't know if it was more important than the other two or not, but it was more remarkable and unusual.
If that catch truly ends up being Gronk's last in the NFL, that'll be the play that makes the best of many years down the road

Incredibly unique, need to show the wide view to make it fully appreciable how freaking far and fast he went. Also stopped on a dime to not impale himself on the goalpost pole.

Josh, I'm glad you didn't go to Indianapolis.

Classic BB.

I'll upload this to Vimeo later. I already downloaded it.

Interestingly, it looks like the NFL copyright claimed that YouTube video, but they haven't taken it down.

Man DYJ is some high quality Patriots porn. I would pay top dollar for another full year of NFL films embedded with BB 10 years after his Football Life episode.

He would do it, but only if its release was delayed until 2 years after he retires.

Love McCourty, great great play, the hustle, the timing... But what made that great great play even possible - criminal lack of awareness and an AWFUL throw by Goff. A duck. Recognize it, throw it on a line, even somewhat, and it’s 7-3 Rams.

Just watched America’s Game. Just noticed how great McCourty did on getting his hand on Cooks’ arm. Not sure he would’ve landed in bounds regardless but just amazing awareness there. Big ole smile watching this one.
