Brunell Part Of Super Bowl History
Brunell, the primary backup quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, served as the team's holder for PATs and field goals. In the third quarter of Super Bowl XLIV from Miami, Fla., Saints kicker Garrett Hartley kicked a 47 yard field goal, his longest outdoor field goal of the season.
More notably, with Brunell holding, Hartley set a Super Bowl record with three field goals of more than 40 yards.
According to the Dallas Morning News, "In the first half he hit from 46 and 44 yards. Cincinnati's Jim Breech was the only kicker in the first 43 Super Bowls to have made two field goals from more than 40 yards when he accomplished it against San Francisco in Super Bowl XXIII.
Add that to his winning kick against Minnesota in the NFC title game and this has been a pretty good run for Hartley."
The USA Today posted this piece today on Brunell making it to the Super Bowl after 16 years in the NFL.
