Bud Light is continuing its hugely popular Middle Ages-themed “Dilly Dilly!” ad campaign for Super Bowl 52.
The beer brand will air two Super Bowl commercials — “Ye Old Pep Talk” and “The Bud Knight” — to complete a trilogy for the campaign, which started with “Wizard.”
“He’s played a long time,” Brees said while speaking with Sporting News before last year’s Super Bowl. “He’s about to wrap up his 17th season. In those 17 years, it’s 14 division championships, 11 AFC championship games, seven Super Bowls, potentially five Super Bowl wins. That’s quite remarkable, that level of consistency for that period of time.”
In only three years during his career has Brady has won nothing. In one of them, 2000, he was a developmental rookie backup to Drew Bledsoe as a sixth-round draft pick. In another, following a 16-0 regular season in 2007, he suffered his lone major injury, to his knee, in Week 1 of 2008.
In the history of the Super Bowl there have been only five players to receive the game’s Most Valuable Player award more than once, and all of them are quarterbacks. In fact, quarterbacks have won the award 28 times.
The Patriots’ Tom Brady (four Super Bowl MVP awards), of course, is on the list of players with multiple Super Bowl MVP awards, along with Bart Starr (2), Terry Bradshaw (2), Joe Montana (3) and Eli Manning (2). Brady broke a tie with Montana when he won his fourth MVP award in Super Bowl 51.
When you look across sports at potential GOATs, including Jordan, Jim Brown and Wayne Gretzky, the others were phenoms who came in as can’t-miss chosen ones. Like LeBron James now, they experienced success at every level. Pro awesomeness felt like the natural progression.
That Incognito, college man, very likely is a career creep would be far more shameful if he wasn’t just the latest in a long, ceaseless series. It’s not, after all, as if the NFL or NCAA long ago determined to dam the flow or even plug a leak.
What were Incognito’s deterrents to being a creep? It couldn’t be what college did for him. It couldn’t be the NFL. It couldn’t be TV. It couldn’t be Ray Lewis, who now, as if ESPN couldn’t anticipate such grotesque farce, appears on TV to make shame-shame at players accused of misconduct.
