    Belichick picks 'the Snow Game" as his most memorable comeback

    In his weekly interview with Salk and Holley, Belichick was asked what his most memorable/favorite comback was that he was a part of. He said "probably the Snow Game..."

    I found it pretty rare and interesting. It was a seldom 'human' moment from Belichick, the fact that he, himself, refers to it as the "Snow Game" is pretty cool to me. That game was amazing. Ty Law. Jermaine Wiggine. And Adam Vinatieri x2. The single greatest kick in NFL history.

    At any rate...again, I just thought it interesting and note-worthy that he didn't use a robotic answer, or some generality. I always enjoy any real opinions or thoughts he has to offer, which he doesn't often do in public.

    Underrated choice:

    2002 @ Chicago at the University of Illinois-Champaign Stadium.  Patten taps the two feet in bounds in the back of the end zone.

    Had no business winning that game. Down by 21 in the 3rd on the road:

    another good call, problem is that season had few good memories besides that game.. last years San Fran game would've been the best i've seen but they choked in the end

    Buffalo opener a few years back was pretty good, two TDs to Watson in the last couple of minutes. Brady's comeback game post-ACL as I recall?

    Chargers in '06 playoffs, dancing on the logo, sweet win.

    It's funny reading the box scores from back then. This game seemed like it was not that long ago. I remember by buddy jumped up and ripped the cord to the fan off the fan by accident in one fell swoop in excitement.  lmao

    that Bills game was wild. Chargers for sure trumps it though. how about the Ravens game 2007 Jabar Gaffeny MNF tht deserves an honorable mention

    How about the intentional Safety game in Denver...?  That one was unbelievable....  I think that was the most obvious attempted fix in history the refs called that game 16 penalties...  14 on Pats , 2 on Broncos.  But Brady pulled it out.  Amazing.

    I, too, thought that was a rare human moment for BB.  I listened to that interview yesterday while at work.  I thought BB sounded like he was coming down with a major cold.  He certainly sounded rather listless - even for him.

    the only thing (not including Snow Game) that comes close to me is the come from behind overtime win against the Vikings in '94.  Crazy home game and people were losing their minds in a similar fashion.

    http://articles.latimes.com/1994-11-14/sports/sp-62566_1_drew-bledsoe

    "But Bledsoe did much better in the second half, completing 37 of 53 passes for 354 yards, as the Patriots switched to a no-huddle offense for almost the entire half.

    The Vikings, who were tied for third in the NFL with 27 sacks, didn't get to Bledsoe once.

    He broke NFL records of 68 passes by Houston's George Blanda on Nov. 1, 1964, and 42 completions by the New York Jets' Richard Todd on Sept. 21, 1980.

    At halftime, the Patriots were trailing, 20-3, and had gone 10 quarters without a touchdown.

    Minnesota still led, 20-10, with less than three minutes to play in the fourth quarter.

    Then Bledsoe passed five yards to Leroy Thompson for a touchdown with 2:21 to play. The Vikings couldn't get a first down on their next series, and Bledsoe led the Patriots from their 39-yard line to Matt Bahr's tying 23-yard field goal with 14 seconds remaining."

    Re: Belichick picks 'the Snow Game

    The snow game is my fav as well because it launched a dynasty..but close second for me is that playoff game in San Diego where Troy brown strips the sd defender after the interception and we go ahead and win on the road.
