Boy Green as a member of the media got a chance to speak with former New England Patriot, Tedy Bruschi, ahead of Super Bowl 51.

Super Bowl 51 is nearly upon us and it should be a phenomenal game. Ahead of the game on an ESPN Media conference call, I had the opportunity to ask Tedy Bruschi a few questions.

Despite what would appear to be clear bias, Tedy Bruschi actually gave an objective opinion of the game.

The line for the game hasn’t changed since this game was scheduled. The New England Patriots are favored by three.

Tom Brady is attempting to accomplish something no one has in the history of the game, while Matt Ryan is trying to get into the conversation.

But I asked Bruschi about “the aura” that has been around the Patriots for the 21st century. Where did it come from and what is it all about?

When you think of the Patriots it’s easy to think of Tom Brady and this high-octane passing attack, but the real backbone of this team is their defense.

Why don’t they get the respect they deserve? Bruschi has the answers.

People call me Boy Green for my unwavering dedication to all things New York Jets. I work at ESPN Radio in Syracuse and I’m extremely passionate about sports. I aspire to continue my rise through the business and hopefully I’ll end up working for the New York Jets in some capacity.
