By Alex Barth,

It’s a crisp fall afternoon. You’re inside watching the Patriots. Tom Brady takes the snap out of shotgun and just stands there. Stands. Looking. You start to stand up, everybody knows whats coming. Brady launches the ball down the field for the touchdown.

We’ve all been there.

For a guy who was knocked for his deep-ball ability for most of his Patriots career, Brady could sling it. Brady threw for 44 50-plus yard touchdowns during his time in New England, more than any other quarterback in the league during that span.

Of course, it helped playing with Randy Moss, who caught seven of those 44 passes, with four of those coming during the legendary 2007 season. (Yes, the quality of this video is on the lower side, but it has Gil Santos on the call, so it’s absolutely worth it).

Brady didn’t only hit Moss with the long ball. In fact, if you look at his 10 longest career passes, Moss’ name doesn’t show up on the list. Rob Gronkowski barely sneaks in at 10 with a 76-yard catch and run against the Giants. In fact, if you look at the top five, it’s Wes Welker, David Patten, Shane Vereen, Troy Brown, and in a tie for fifth are legendary Patriots Aaron Dobson and Sam Aiken.

Yeah, we’ll still get to see Brady throw the ball deep in some other uniform. It just won’t be the same. At least he left us with plenty of memories.
