Patriots get rings, celebrate at Robert Kraft’s home

The Patriots offered fans a glimpse of Friday night’s private ring ceremony via their social media sites. The team released video of the Super Bowl LI rings arriving in an armored car. There also were photos of Martellus Bennett posing with the team’s Lombardi trophies, and Tom Brady hugging owner Robert Kraft.

It appears the Patriots are going to party the night away at Kraft’s home.

New England secured the franchise’s fifth championship with a 34-28 comeback victory over the Falcons.

  1. No team’s Super Bowls have provided more exciting memories. They bring out the best in themselves and their opponents. Just ask Tyree, Mannungham, and Kearse. Just compare the Super Bowls in which the Patriots have been involved since 2001 with the snoozefests in which they weren’t involved. The league needs the New England Patriots.

  2. Unbelievable. We’ll never see a better super bowl. So much on the line.

    My non Pats fan friends seemed surprised how psyched I was and am about this. Like how we could still be “pumped and jacked” on the fifth one.

    Kraft put it best. All the Pats fans know why this one might be the most special of all.

  3. Absolutely historic. Folks, this domination will not happen again in our life time. I hate the Pats but tip my hat to them for all they have done and likely will continue to do. They are the best.

  4. Near perfection gets hard to argue with.

    I’d call ‘rubbing it in’ but honestly my 1st question is why’d they wait so long to party?

  5. .
    The chances that another team will replicate the Patriots 16+ year run in the salary cap era are remote. They’ve averaged over 12 wins per season and been to the Super Bowl 7 times during that period. This year’s roster is talented enough duplicate both those milestones.

    I can understand those who are loathe to root for the Patriots. They are trophy hogs in Goodell’s barnyard of parity. However, from a dispassionate standpoint, we’re all witnessing a true NFL anomaly. With injuries, free agency, the crap shoot we call the draft and millions of dollars bestowed upon kids barely out of their teens, there’s a plethora of reasons why a team can derail and have a lost season or decade. To me it’s not so much about the Super Bowl victories as it is consistent competitiveness. For 16 years they’ve been “in the hunt”. Every game they’ve played since 2001 has had playoff implications.
    .

  6. Like any self respecting Steeler fan I loathe the Patriots but DAYUMMM THOSE ARE SOME SWEET LOOKING RINGS!! Congrats to Pats fans on having such a stellar franchise to root for!! Enjoy and can’t wait for this season!

  7. The rumor is that the rings have 283 diamonds in homage to the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

    Personally, I’m swamped over here watching allllllllllllll these Tom Brady Super Bowl highlights from over the years, but if someone else wants to count the diamonds to verify be my guest.

  8. An extremely generous person just opened his home to many current and some former Patriots while presenting them with rings featuring sapphire and ruby and hundreds of diamonds.

    Those diamonds will last forever.
    Just like:

    • The memories of that incredible comeback.
    • The science which will always prove that cold weather lowered the PSI in footballs.
    • The stupidity of those who will claim that someone let air out of footballs.
    • The jealousy of those who are unable to recognize talent and hard work.

    They’re lucky Carr snapped his leg.

    The patsies run would’ve ended in Oakland.

    Patriots by 47.

  10. “They’re lucky Carr snapped his leg.”

    Lol delusional.

    The Raiders would have been squashed by either the Steelers or Pats whoever they got to first.

    They are a good team I’ll give them credit for that. But I wouldn’t be talking trash when your team hasn’t done squat most of the last 20 years.

    C’mon man. I’m a Raiders fan and I look go8rward to this years Pats v. Raiders game, likely a preview of the AFC Championship game. However, Last year.. the Pats secured home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They we’re never going to play a game in Oakland, no matter what.

  12. And to think before 2001 none of us Boston folk were into the Patriots at all, we were just angry Red Sox fans dealing with decades of Yankee domination.
    Has this been a great Century so far or what? 🙂

  13. People always seem to forget that those of us who have been lifelong Pats fans suffered every single year for the longest time. I think it’s awesome that I get to see them do this in my lifetime. I am not rubbing it in to any other team. I’m just happy to be a Pats fan.

    Absolutely. Well said!

    That’s so overblown. They made it a Super Bowl in the 80’s and 90’s, and had some good teams in the 70’s as well. Sure there were bad years, but compared to a lot of other teams it’s been pretty good.

    Raiders would have destroyed the Steelers, and then given the Patriots a much better game than Pitt did in that embarrassing AFC Title game wipeout.

  17. I’m new t this and can’t figure how to reply to certain posts…But to those Raiders “fans” who have a gripe? How about 1976-roughing the passer or illegal forward pass? If my aunt had testicles? She’d be my uncle! Got the f**k over it! Injuries happen…maybe? you might have beaten a playoff team? But WE WON THE SUPER BOWL! No brag/just fact..
