Before Super Bowl 50 kicked off, the NFL honored all of its former Super Bowl MVP's in an on-field ceremony, and the Patriots were well-represented. Tom Brady and Deion Branch were there, and both were booed.
But Brady got it the worst. Brady was heavily booed the minute his face was shown in Levi Stadium. It was mostly a Broncos crowd, so it'd make sense that Brady was booed.
He's not even safe in his own hometown.
Prior to the ceremony, Brady talked about how much it meant to him to be included in a very elite group of football players. From CBS Boston:
“It’s hard to really put into words,” said Brady, who was named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII and XLIX. “I think more so it is a feeling that you get. It’s pretty tough to describe because I think for me I think about where I started and growing up 26 miles away from here in San Mateo and just realizing the journey of what it all means to get to this point.
“It’s really a celebration of the great teams that I have been apart of and for me I am really proud to represent all those teams that won these great championships. They are hard to win. Any number of guys could have won this award, any number of years that we’ve won it. I stand up here representing all those other guys too,” he said.
