After being long overdue, former Patriots cornerback Ty Law was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year.
On Adam Schefter’s podcast for ESPN, Law said Brady and Manning each wrote letters of recommendation to help Ty Law get inducted in the Hall of Fame. Law was an absolute nemesis of Manning’s and is probably still giving him nightmares. Law was so good he single-handedly forced former Colts GM into doing everything he could to change the NFL’s coverage rules. In the 2003 AFC Championship, Law intercepted Manning three times. His physical style of play changed how defenses would be allowed to play in the future.
Law was one of the best cornerbacks in his generation and was a major factor in the Patriots first 3 championship seasons. Had the rule change not have gone into effect it is quite possible Manning would have never won a Superbowl until his final season in Denver.
Law played 15 seasons with the Patriots, Jets and Broncos recording 53 interceptions.
Law was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame alongside fellow defensive backs Champ Bailey and Ed Reed, among others.
On @AdamSchefter podcast, Ty Law said Peyton Manning wrote a letter to Pro Football Hall of Fame committee recommending he get in. Tom Brady did as well, and got far more publicity. Law's best game may have come against Manning in '04 AFCCG when he picked him off 3 times.
