Spagnuolo stopped Brady in Super Bowl XLII


HThere is someone on the Chiefs coaching staff that provokes animosity from Tom Brady. And it’s not head coach Andy Reid, whom the Buccaneers passer already defeated in Super Bowl XXXIX, when the then Patriots quarterback doubled over to the Eagles.

The man in question is Steve Spagnuolo, who arrived in Kansas City in 2019, right after Brady and the Pats accounted for the Chiefs in the AFC final: 37-31.

The experienced defensive coordinator put more order in KC’s defense: in 2018 the team averaged 26.3 points received per game (24th place in the league) and, in two years with Steve, to the figure of 20.9.

In the last SB LIV in which KC defeated the 49ers, Spagnuolo won his second ring. The first was achieved precisely against Brady, after one of his best jobs to date: in the 2007 season with the Giants; that defense took away the undefeated from the Patriots, who came to the SB after a perfect season (16-0).

Brady had just been named MVP of the season (50 TD and 4,805 yards) and his offense had scored 589 points, with 6,580 total yards, but in that SB XLII, the Pats attack was dried: only 14 points, and Eli Manning commanded a final offense to win 17-14.

That February 3, 2008, Brady, who qualifies as the most painful loss of his career, was sacked five times, limited to 266 yards, with only one TD pass and 82.5 rating. Tomorrow at SB LV, the veteran quarterback will have his chance for a rematch.
