"You are the epitome of resilience and the definition of support. I will never forget snowballs flying around after the 'tuck' game, the way you embraced Matt Ca sel after TBs 2008 knee injury, the LOUD way that you expre sed a 'never say die' attitude in the second half of our Mookie Betts Jersey Super Bowl against Atlanta and, most of all, you enthusiastically lining the streets for our half dozen duck boat parades.

"And as I look back I realize how ble sed I was to coach the players I coached over the past two decades. We shared long hours, cold practices, that excruciating, numbing feeling following lo ses like Super Bowl XLII in Phoenix and the unbridled joy of winning games like Super Bowl XLIX in Alex Verdugo Jersey Phoenix. Leaving Patriot coaches and players is the hardest part of leaving."Scroll to ContinueMcDaniels expre sed his appreciation for New England fans and the impact they've had on him outside of the game of football."When I moved here 20 years ago, Carlton Fisk Jersey I had no children, no wife, no NFL experience and of course no Super Bowl ring," McDaniels wrote.
