Given the fact that they�re the best team of this decade, New England Patriots posters are always in demand from retailers like AllPosters.com. It doesn�t matter who leaves or retires, Bill Belichick and company just plug someone else in and keep rolling right along.
Here are some current Patriots posters which fans might want to get their hands on.
New England Patriots Posters – Tom Brady
Tom Brady started his career as a backup to Drew Bledsoe, but he came into his own after Bledsoe went down with an injury in 2001. Brady never looked back. Since that time, he�s led his team to four Super Bowls and won three. During the 2007 season, he broke Payton Manning�s record for the most touchdown passes thrown in a season. In his spare time, he dates actresses and supermodels.
With his successful career and good looks, is it any wonder that there are a ton of Tom Brady posters available? From celebrating with teammates to holding the Lombardi Trophy aloft, there�s a wide selection to choose from. My personal favorite features Brady preparing to pass the ball while a defender moves in for the kill. What makes it really cool is the heavy snowfall coming down all around them.
In 2007, the Patriots went 16-0 and achieved a perfect regular season. In the process, they joined the 1972 Dolphins (14-0), 1942 Chicago Bears (11-0) and 1934 Chicago Bears (13-0) as the only teams to have an undefeated regular season. They defeated their opponents that year by a margin of 315 points, which broke the old record of 292 (1942 Bears).
Several posters are available which celebrate the Patriots� perfect season. One reads �16-0� in large red print, while another details each victory during the regular season.
From 2001 to 2004, the New England Patriots captured three Super Bowl titles (XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX). There are a number of posters which celebrate these wins, but the best one is from Super Bowl XLII. It features tickets from all previous Super Bowls, with Super Bowl XLII dominating the center of the poster.
The championship posters are good companion pieces to the undefeated season. Patriots fans can revel in the reign of destruction their team enjoyed in the 2007 NFL regular season, then sooth the pain of their Super Bowl XLII defeat by looking at posters from their three earlier Super Bowl wins.
In 1998, Moss burst onto the scene with the Minnesota Vikings. Named Offensive Rookie of the Year, Moss caught an amazing 17 touchdowns in his first season in the league. After a dismal stint with the Raiders, Moss signed with the Patriots and proceeded to break Jerry Rice�s record for the most touchdown receptions in a season (23).
Randy Moss catches balls like few others, and his posters do a fine job of getting that point across. There are a few which celebrate his record-breaking 23 touchdown season, and Moss shows off his cornrows in a number of the posters.
New England Patriots Football Posters – Tedy Bruschi
Many view linebacker Tedy Bruschi as the heart and soul of the Patriots defense. We�re talking about a man who suffered a stroke and returned later in the year to play football. If that doesn�t deserve three Super Bowl rings, then I don�t know what does.
The fact that over 20 posters and photos are available of Bruschi is a testament to his popularity with the fans. One of the best is a low-angle shot which shows Bruschi celebrating his team�s Super Bowl XXXVIII victory.
Drafted in 2006, Maroney split time in his first season with running back Corey Dillon. With Dillon�s release the following year, Maroney took over as the team�s feature back. In college, he played for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
Laurence Maroney posters all feature the running back rumbling down the field with his dreadlocks flapping behind him. One poster even features him falling to the ground. It�s certainly dramatic, but it also seems a little out of place.
Drafted in the 5th round by the San Diego Chargers, safety Rodney Harrison went to two Pro Bowls with the team. In 2003, he signed with the Patriots as a free agent. Considered by many to be a dirty player, he has been fined over $200,000 by the NFL. He is the only player in NFL history to record 30 interceptions and 30 sacks.
Several of Rodney Harrison�s posters show him in the act of celebrating a play on the field. The coolest-looking one has Harrison suspended in mid-air. Another winner is Harrison spiking the ball during the 2003 AFC Championship Game.
Wes Welker has quickly become a fan favorite for the New England Patriots. Welker began his NFL career playing the Pats’ division rivals, the Miami Dolphins. Bill Belichik brought him in as a free agent for the 2007 season, because he said Welker always had great games against the Patriots. Wes Welker was supposed to be the 3rd receiver behind Randy Moss and Donte Stallworth, but Welker ended the season with the most catches in the NFL.
There are three great posters of Wes Welker. One has him running with the ball after a catch against the hated Colts. Another has him running through the tackles of a Dallas Cowboys player. A third Wes Welker poster shows him spiking the ball after a touchdown.
