    Martellus Bennett: Tom Brady not the best he's played with

    While New England may deem him the GOAT, Tom Brady’s former tight end Martellus Bennett doesn’t. Compared to other quarterback’s Bennett has played with, Brady isn’t No. 1, but No. 2 on the tight end’s list. “With playing with Tom, it was a lot of coaching — like little things,” Bennett told NFL Total Access. “Like the way he wanted you to get your head around quicker because he wants to get the ball out of his hands a little bit faster. So usually if I’m running a deep over route and I’m catching it 17 yards on the number on the other side, with Tom, he might throw it in between the ‘backers.

    Beware Of Tidy Success Narratives -- In Pharma, And In Life

    On a fateful January day in 1991, 30 year old Scott Norwood took a deep breath and lined up the kick of his life – an opportunity to win Super Bowl XXV for coach Marv Levy and the Buffalo Bills, who were trailing Bill Parcells’ New York Giants 20-19 with eight seconds left in the game. Adam Lingner hiked the ball, Frank Reich spotted it, and Norwood struck it. The kick had the length – 47 yards– but veered perhaps a yard outside the goal post, “wide right” as Al Michaels memorably called it. Predictably, the coverage after the game extolled the Giants – Parcells’ strategy, the team’s execution – and came down hard on Levy’s approach as well as the Bills’ performance. Yet had the entire game been
