In the first half last night the Patriots were really needing some help from the offense. They were facing off against the Green Bay Packers and it wasn’t looking pretty. What was going to help pull this rabbit out of the hat? Would you have believed it before last night if I would have told you that it was going to be Dan Connolly?
There are a lot of people that have not been paying much attention to Dan Connolly. Connolly is 6’4 and 313 pounds. He is one big guy but there were plenty of people that were not rooting for him as the star of the show. Well Dan Connolly sure showed all of us when he gave an amazing 71-yard kickoff return.
This kickoff return put the Patriots on the 4 yard line and there was only 2:04 left in the half. The crowd in Gillette stadium was on it’s feet. Everyone was talking about him and his name was almost immediately all over Twitter. Dan Connolly is for sure THE man right now!
