Law did an interview Wednesday with WEEI's "Dale & Keefe", and he told a funny story about Manning trying to get him drunk at the Pro Bowl in an attempt to find out what the Patriots star was thinking in certain on-field situations.
We asked Ty Law about when he picked off Tom Brady...but FIRST he told a different story...
"Peyton would try to get you...once you get over to the Pro Bowl, you're on the same team Peyton try to get you drunk and then try to dig into your brain...he feed you these mai tais..." pic.twitter.com/ytboUR3urN
It's hard to fault Manning for trying. Law typically played very well against the legendary quarterback, and one performance sticks out above the rest.
The Colts entered the 2003 AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium with a red-hot offense that scored 79 points over the previous two playoff rounds combined. The Patriots defense stepped up to the challenge and did a tremendous job slowing down Manning in a 24-14 win as New England punched its ticket to Super Bowl XXXVIII. Manning threw four interceptions, and Law had three of them.
Law was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 class. Manning, who's eligible for the Hall of Fame beginnng in 2021, will soon follow Law into Canton.
"I cry as I type this," Michelle wrote in an Instagram post. "My pregnancy had resulted in a stillbirth at almost 8 months of being pregnant — at exactly 31 weeks 2 days, when we found out that the baby girl growing inside me no longer had a heartbeat after being completely fine the week prior at my last doctor’s appointment.
"We are so heartbroken. We are devastated. We are speechless. We are angry. We are sad. We are confused. We are numb."
The couple has two other young children: a 3-year-old girl named Londyn and a 2-year-old boy named Brayden.
The McCourtys received an outpouring of support from Devin's current and former teammates after he shared the news on Instagram.
Here's ex-Patriots quarterback Tom Brady: "Love you my brother. So sad for you loss! You are in our thoughts and prayers always ❤️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼"
And here's Patriots linebackers coach Jerod Mayo: "My prayers and love to your family bro."
Patriots wide receiver N'Keal Harry -- "My prayers are definitely going out to y’all. Love you bro💙" -- Detroit Lions defensive end Trey Flowers -- "Prayers for you and your family! 💪🏾 be strong brother" -- and ex-Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib -- "Praying for ya family brotha!" -- were among many other NFL players offering their support to the McCourtys.
Michelle added in her message that she and Devin "appreciate the love and support we’ve already gotten, and just ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time, since we have no answers to give anyway."
Tom Brady took time out of his Saturday to congratulate the Class of 2020 at the Forman School in Litchfield, Conn.
The former New England Patriots quarterback gave an inspiring virtual commencement address in which he implored the graduating students to embrace adversity. Brady used the coronavirus pandemic as an example of a challenge the students -- along with the rest of the world -- are learning to overcome.
“We’ve all had our difficult times overcoming different adversities and challenges that we’re facing, and this one is no different,” Brady said. “I think what you understand when you’re going through things like this is you learn from them and you make the best of them.”
Brady also spent time talking about his own career, and the obstacles he overcame to go from the No. 199 overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft to a six-time Super Bowl champion and arguably the greatest QB of all time. The 42-year-old stressed the importance of putting 100 percent effort into everything one hopes to accomplish in life.
“Your future is going to be what you make of it,” Brady said. “Because you ‘re not going to be able to rely on people to do things for you. That’s not the way life is. If you want to be great at something, you’re going to have to put all your commitment and effort and discipline into doing just that.”
