Tom Brady had the perfect scenario drawn up. Two minutes left, down by five, and a sixth ring at stake. It looked like Brady was going to lead a game-winning Super Bowl drive and ride off into the sunset. Heck, it would have been the perfect way to retire even.

Instead, Brandon Graham happened, and the Philadelphia Eagles ended up winning the Super Bowl. It is now Brady's third career Super Bowl loss, and he wasn't happy about it at all.

The New England Patriots star quarterback stormed off the field and didn't even shake opposing QB Nick Foles' hand.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady left the field following his Super Bowl 52 defeat without acknowledging the celebrating Philadelphia Eagles stars.

The 40-year-old was snapped leaving the field without taking part in the traditional handshake between opposing quarterbacks.

Brady – who has won five Super Bowl rings in his glittering career – looked devastated after being strip-sacked in the dying stages to all-but hand the win to the Eagles.

The Eagles backup QB – now Super Bowl MVP – Nick Foles produced a game-winning performance and was quickly greeted by his wife and baby daughter while Brady was nowhere to be seen.

Shannon Sharpe does have a point. There's also this quote from Brady after the game about the Eagles, implying they made only good play all game at the right time.
“They made a good play,” Brady said. “They made a good play. They made one good play at the right time.”
Sounds a little salty to me.

It'll be interesting to see what the Patriots do moving forward regarding the team and personnel. There's already questions if Gronk even returns. Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia are gone. There's still no guarantee Bill Belichick comes back.

A lot of questions for New England this upcoming offseason. This Super Bowl loss is going to sting.
