New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady leaves the field after their loss to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, Ind. on Feb. 5, 2012.

There were a lot of “almost in” pictures during this week's edit. An “almost in” is a picture that an editor sort of likes, but isn’t passionate about or can’t convince the other editors of its worthiness.

My “almost-in” this week is the picture of Tom Brady leaving the field after his team’s Super Bowl loss. The picture is well composed, and I like the way Gary Hershorn captured Brady turning away from the celebration. It’s a story-telling picture.
