It's also the first Super Bowl to have a quarterback throw a touchdown pass and receive a touchdown pass.

It's also the first Super Bowl the Philadelphia Eagles won!!!  EVER!!!  EVAR!!!

Congrats to the Phila elphia Eagles for finally taking down the evil empire of 4th quarter comebacks, the New Englan Patriots.

If he had caught his own pass, that would have been epic.

All games should be balls-out shoot-outs

And Brady did not look the same after that strip sack. He was shook.

He definitely was..  Of all teams to deflate his ego... The Eagles were the best choice.  The media hyped up Brady winning yet another Superbowl to epic and near preposterous proportions.  I mean he's good but everyone was going full Tony Romo about it.   So happy to see him take a huge lose on the grandest stage of them all.

If Brady was looking to his right immediately after the snap, he'd have seen white roll out wide open for a screen pass which would have went at least 15 yards.

Think that was what Mike Tyson once uttered, "Everybody has a plan 'til you get punched in the mouth."
 
2018-02-05 02:25:20 PM  
This is basically the culmination of the past 15-20 years of defensive rule changes to favor offenses, just like what's happened in the NBA and NHL.  Pretty soon, every game will feature Pro Bowl style defenses.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: So when do we get to know why butler was benched?


I think many years or when Butler is off the team and doesn't have to worry about the consequences of opening his mouth.

It definitely came off like a personal vendetta/punishment. It made zero sense, and by mid game not putting him in still was damn near going full retard

Dude wasn't hiding from him. I expect Brady accidentally had piece of a tomato or he may have skimped on that last three gallons of water.

Also: watching the hail mary pass that is being replayed over and over, why the fark didn't Gronk catch it?  It lazily bounced right on his head.  I know, I probably wouldn't have caught it.  But if you're getting paid millions, you're taller than everyone else around you, the ball misses your hand by a few inches, but then hovers around and off of your helmet.  Farking grab it.

Not a Pats fan, just sayin'

Some other player in the locker room is gonna spill the beans at some point.  Butler is a UFA anyway there's nothing stopping him from talking unless he did something to deserve it.

Wasn't there a defensive player coming over his back to knock it away?  That's how I remember it but for full disclosure I had a few in me...

Though sadly I would not put it past him to win at least one more.  Even though I hate him with a passion, he has to be the best QB ever.  Sorry Joe.

He couldn't put his hands together, he was draped by defenders going for the ball.

In fantasyland, Amendola should have been moving toward the ball instead of standing there and watching.  He was about 2 steps away from catching it before it finally hit the ground.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: Wasn't there a defensive player coming over his back to knock it away?


More like three or four defensive players. The ball got knocked around by the defense, it's not like Gronk had a clean shot at an uncontested ball. Given all the defenders there, even if he does make the initial catch there are very good odds it would have been stripped out.

Scuttlebutt from my facebook feed is that a relative of a security officer posted that he was caught coming back to the hotel past curfew and in possession of weed, then he had a meltdown with the coaches. No idea if it's true or not.

So the game was lost for a f**king grown up toddler's ego.
I'd love to see that story come out, and see our "President's" Twitter response to it.

Scoring in the NHL is abysmal and has been for years. There hasn't been a season with multiple 100-point players since 09-10. Jamie Benn won the 14-15 scoring title with the lowest point total since 1968.

That doesn't change that the NHL has made changes to try and boost the offense.  The offsides change was one of the biggest offensive rule changes the NHL has seen in ages, and changes on overtime, hits/checks, etc only serve to facilitate more offense.  They'd be in a worse spot offensively without those changes.

What, you mean removing the two-line pass? And its effect paled in comparison to "actually calling penalties for a little bit" after the 04-05 season was canceled.

bhcompy: and changes on overtime, hits/checks, etc only serve to facilitate more offense


4-on-4 and now 3-on-3 overtime is nothing. It means maybe one more goal a game, if the game is tied. Hit and checks? What changes? There have been no changes to that at all.

I'm not going to go over 10+ years worth of rule changes to reduce the physicality in the game due to the fallout of injuries to star players, problems with players like Marty McSorely resulting in criminal lawsuits, and concussion woes.

You can keep pretending that the NHL isn't changing rules to try and facilitate offense from whatever fantasyland you live in.  The fact that things haven't panned out doesn't change the fact that the changes aren't being made, and ignores where the game would be without them.
