In what I consider to be a really nice tribute to Myra Kraft, Bill Belichick presented the game ball for the Patriots victory over the Dolphins to team owner Robert Kraft. Myra Kraft passed away back on July 20 at the age of 68 after a battle with cancer. During her final times she urged her husband to go work on negotiations between the owners and the players to get a deal worked out with their collective bargaining agreement. Without that, you and I would still be talking legalese like we were last summer, rather than how the no-huddle offense sparked a 17 point comeback victory, or Gronk touchdown spikes, or any and all other on the field football topics.
