Um, I think you mean Pistons.
I mean, at this point maybe football is not the sport for him anymore.

They misspelled "losers."

When I see these stats, first thing that comes to mind is worst passing defenses ever to match-up in a Super Bowl.  Make for fireworks and excitement, though.

Most Points, Game, Losing Team -- 33, New England
Most First Downs Passing, Game, Both Teams -- 42
Most Total Yards, Game, Team -- 613, New England
Most Total Yards, Game, Both Teams -- 1,151
Most Passing Yards, Game, Team -- 500, New England*
Most Passing Yards, Game, Both Teams -- 874
Fewest Punts, Game, Team -- 0, New England
Fewest Punts, Game, Both Teams -- 1
(ties:)
Most Passes, None Intercepted, Game -- 48, Tom Brady
Most First Downs, Game, Both Teams -- 54
Most Passes, Game, Both Teams --93
Most Touchdown Passes, Game, Both Teams -- 7
Fewest Times Sacked, Game, Team - 0, Philadelphia
Fewest Times Sacked, Game, Both Teams - 1**


*This is weird because the same article lists Most Passing Yards, Game -- 505, Tom Brady.  Were there negative passing yards by a teammate?  The only non-Brady Pats pass I remember was incomplete.

I don't think so. I think it's listed as a negative run. At least that's how it's counted in Fantasy when your QB is sacked.

Thing is - it's not bad pass defenses so much as it is massive rule changes that make many games effectively 7-on-7 exercises. This is the future of football - QBs having 90% of every game to chuck the ball downfield without fear. This is the reason Brady can still play; imagine the numbers some of the guys from the 80s might have put up with today's rules. The world has moved on.

I did not realize the yards do NOT come off Brady's individual stats though just team totals.

This game was like watching my old roommates play Madden with holding and PI turned off.
 
2018-02-05 01:26:17 PM  
Umm.. it wasn't "one 2-pt conversion missed by each team". The Eagles tried both 2-pt conversions and missed. The first one was a questionable decision, trying a regular XP at that stage was probably better, although I wasn't surprised given how Doug calls a game. The latter on, well, should have worked if the Pats defender didn't shove the Eagles player to the ground in front of the ref, who just shrugged.
 
2018-02-05 01:43:28 PM  
I wonder if the o-coordinators for each team were drooling at the matchup and thought they were going to win 41-10 or 33-10, only to have their defenses screw up what they may have felt should have been an easier day.  Because both of those defenses... that was some bullsh*t.

I don't think so. I think it's listed as a negative run. At least that's how it's counted in Fantasy when your QB is sacked.


In college they count as rushing yards for both the team totals and individual stats. In the NFL, they count as passing yards for team totals and aren't tallied up for the individual.

True; however, they got the biggest play when it counted (strip/sack of Brady).

"In Belicheck we trust" went from and 8 or 9 to a 5 or 6 for me because of that.

I can accept not starting him because of "football reasons". But not putting him in at all when your defense is doing terrible?
Someone haul out the dementia test.

Was asking the same question myself during the game.  He must've done something really messed up to have Bellichick not start or play him at all.

BTW, Congrats on the win.

supposedly Butler missed curfew and got caught with the weed. not sure I'm buying that but there must have been some kind of all out brawl with the coaching staff for them to bring in Bademosi and Rowe to take his place.

The announcers were talking about him crying during the Anthem, hypothesizing that he got some really bad news before the game and wasn't in condition to play, but still suited up.

Not sure if that's true, but just giving another hypothesis as to why.

Would rather keep Eli; I think Shurmur may get the best of him if they beef up the OL.

I read that he was still recovering from illness (probably flu, but the article didn't say specifically).  Bellichick said it was not for disciplinary reasons.  I had the flu this year.  Brutal, took away my endurance for almost 3 weeks.  I'm just starting to exercise again, but I'm middle aged and overweight.  Professional athletes probably recover much faster.  Both teams had problems with illness the last 2 weeks, and it definitely affected the game.

swankywanky: supposedly Butler missed curfew and got caught with the weed.


WOW~!  Then Bellichick was right to keep him on the bench.

If true...Jesus, how stupid are you to do that~?!  Does he think he'll just sign with another team and they'll get to the game next season?!

yeah was joking (about NYG anyway!)...hopefully the changes will get Eli back in to the top QB mix.  Looking forward to making the NFC East the best division in football again

Player availability affects the betting line.  If that had happened, we absolutely would have heard about it, just like Barret Robbins or Eugene Robinson.

Hmmm...they must've had some type of tests to see his reaction and hand-eye coordination and must;'ve found out, "Yeah, the flu's farked him up and he's not even good for 50%".

So either the flu or the weed....

that's the thing - I 100% agree that if it was just weed then BB is pants-on-head for not playing him (just fine him later or something). And if the flu, he did fly out separately from the team, right? then why was he not on the IR?   I really hope it wasn't some death in his family or something like that.

They're required to disclose injuries because insider gambling is a problem that affects the integrity of the game, not because of the betting line.  The NFL doesn't give a shiat about the betting line.  It's the same reason that Pete Rose is still banned from baseball.

The best Lions coach in 40 years was completely mediocre and Detroit won in spite of him. As for Patricia, yeah it was an awful game for the defense, but overall he has been good. The Lions need someone new in there, so why not him? Quinn's choices have been overwhelmingly positive, especially on the drafting side, no need to call him a twit.

It's more fun to point out that it was the Lions former HC who was a Super Bowl DC won; the Super Bowl DC who lost will be the new Lions HC.
