Opening Night (formerly Media Night) at the Super Bowl is notoriously crazy. Reporters bring the weird, show up in funny costumes and ask plenty of questions that prompt strange answers

As we learned this season, it doesn't take Opening Night to get a funny or memorable quote from the Patriots. In honor of Opening Night on Monday in Minneapolis, we're taking a look at some of our favorite sound bites from the season.

*Devin McCourty on Tom Brady's all-looks. *
Reporter: "Can you say how Tom Brady looked at practice today?"
Devin: "Tom looks excellent every day. One of the best-looking people I’ve ever met."
Reporter: "Did he look like his hand was bothering him at all?"
Devin: "When you look at Tom, the facial [region], it’s hard to look at anything else. So, I really only saw his face."
