The game that will go down in history as 'Superb Owl WTF?'
 
2018-02-06 11:56:53 AM  
NEW YORK (AP) - An estimated 103.4 million people watched the Super Bowl on NBC, a 7 percent drop from last year that indicates that television's biggest event may have peaked in popularity.
The Nielsen company said it's the smallest Super Bowl audience on television since 2009 despite the underdog Philadelphia Eagles beating the New England Patriots in a thrilling game that was close from start to finish.


Meh.  Fanbases and matchups matter.  Before the game, this looked like a lousy matchup and I certainly wasn't excited to watch the Pats again.  If it was a Steelers/Cowboys game, regardless of matchup, you'd probably see great ratings.

Waiting for Trump to tweet how audience numbers for the Super Bowl were down this year, obviously because the American public share his disdain for pampered, entitled NFL sons of biatches who take a knee for the national anthem.  Besides, if he had been at the game, they would have had the biggliest ratings ever.

Not so much "dropped" as had it swatted away by 55.  He tried throwing air before eating dirt/astroturf/whatever they got there.

That was funny.

I don't know, the Pats and Eagles both have big national fanbses, I see a ton of Eagles and Pats gear down here in FL.  It was certainly a bigger draw than a Vikings/Jaguars game would've been.

1. Bad throw
2. Great defensive play

I realize it's not as fun to give the Eagles credit when you're not an Eagles fan and you've collectively watched your team lose to Brady and the Patriots for the better part of 2 decades.

People are tired of the Patriots winning all the time, and there was little reason to expect that the Eagles would win. No surprise that viewership was down when a lot of people were rooting for "Giant Meteor"

This is actually true.  I know a ton of people that refused to watch precisely for that reason.  My Super Bowl pool got cancelled this year because not enough people wanted to play out of anger towards the players.

/Each box is usually $250 and the payout is huge.  Very disappointed.

Listening to them talk about Brady all night long was like listening to McCarver talk about Jeter during a World Series game.  Whether or not the Yankees were in the Series that year is irrelevant.

I love the bad throw excuse. While it wasn't dead on it still was on his finger tips. If he didn't go for it like a little old lady and actually jumped a little and put some effort in it he would've caught it. He even said he should have caught it. But nope, during the biggest game of the year he just casually reached up

Who said that was a bad throw to Brady? It would have hit him in the farking head if he were running so much as a marathon pace - seriously, slowest guy on the field by a fair margin. The nose tackle makes that catch 99 times out of 100. Brady has to take 100% of the failure of that play.

I find it amusing that people abandoned something they loved because Donald Trump told them too.  The mere kneeling wasn't enough since that was literally happening last year.  Their main kneeling boogeyman wasn't even in the league this year.

I don't give two shiats who won that game but I don't see how any reasonable person concludes that to be anything but a blatant drop of an extremely easy to catch completely undefended ball.
 
2018-02-06 01:25:06 PM  
I went back and watched the super slo mo. Nana is right - there's just no way for a completely undefended professional athlete to haul that slow floater in. There's a lot of light in your eyes in that scenario plus it was super loud.

The thrower has to take into account the (lack of) athleticism of the target in order to make a good throw. That ball was out of Brady's (very small) catch radius, making it a bad throw.

Well, to be fair, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh probably turned out more for Clinton but the big part of Alabama in between the two major cities was enough to hand Pennsylvania's EC votes to Trump. We will be paying for that for years.

They gave up 500 yards in passing, and never made New England punt once.  Not taking anything away from the Eagles offense, which was solid, but their defense sucked donkey schlong in that Super Bowl.

Most Points, Game, Losing Team -- 33, New England
Most Total Yards, Game, Team -- 613, New England

This is how it should have been executed.

Watch Brady run after the catch and tell me you expected him to do anything else with Sunday's pass.  I'm surprised he didn't trip over himself and fall down.
Of course, those 400 yards of passing are a little more within his strengths.

It could have gone half a dozen different ways but the way it went was 'fine'. Tom Brady is a superb QB and a medical marvel and a decent human being. He also should have caught that ball rather easily. I'm not calling for the man's  tax returns or saying bad things about his kids, just that he dropped an easily catchable ball. Guarantee you he catches that exact ball in practice every farking time.

You know what sucked?  The next play was 4th and 5 and Brady threw a sh*tty downfield pass to a well covered Gronk.
This was a series after they decided to kick a field goal on 4th and 1 from the 6 and botched it.
Brady not making an acrobatic for him catch is about the 4th worst thing he did that half and was maybe the 3rd weirdest coaching decision of the night.

I think you have to file it under perfection is not one of the available choices and the other team was good. Brady threw for a zillion yards and a bunch of TDs and no picks against a good team.They won the second half. No one choked. Philly was just the better team sunday. These things happen.

By acrobatic catch I'll assume you mean a 2% speed increase for a single stride, making a little hop, or reaching up a bit.

This is how it should have been executed.

Watch Brady run after the catch and tell me you expected him to do anything else with Sunday's pass.  I'm surprised he didn't trip over himself and fall down.
Of course, those 400 yards of passing are a little more within his strengths.

It could have gone half a dozen different ways but the way it went was 'fine'. Tom Brady is a superb QB and a medical marvel and a decent human being. He also should have caught that ball rather easily. I'm not calling for the man's  tax returns or saying bad things about his kids, just that he dropped an easily catchable ball. Guarantee you he catches that exact ball in practice every farking time.

You know what sucked?  The next play was 4th and 5 and Brady threw a sh*tty downfield pass to a well covered Gronk.
This was a series after they decided to kick a field goal on 4th and 1 from the 6 and botched it.
Brady not making an acrobatic for him catch is about the 4th worst thing he did that half and was maybe the 3rd weirdest coaching decision of the night.

I think you have to file it under perfection is not one of the available choices and the other team was good. Brady threw for a zillion yards and a bunch of TDs and no picks against a good team.They won the second half. No one choked. Philly was just the better team sunday. These things happen.

By acrobatic catch I'll assume you mean a 2% speed increase for a single stride, making a little hop, or reaching up a bit.


A 2% speed increase, hop, and reach for Brady is less likely than Antonio Brown flipping over a defender and catching a pass between his feet.  You've been watching your giant mobile quarterback for too long.

Well, in fairness, I have heard from the press that his daughter is an annoying little pissant.

Do the ratings account for the number who watched using OTA antennae? I read an article recently about the increase in cord cutters, so I'm curious as to how Nielsen is able to accurately measure the viewership. Most people don't answer surveys.

OK - I guess I've beat this horse enough.

Maybe so. If she's not seeking the public eye she's not really on my radar. Being famous would suck if you don't crave it.

I have cable and still watched it OTA for the better picture quality....  Not only does Comcast compress their feeds, any channel (like NBC) that broadcasts in 1080i, Comcast reduces it to 720p to save more bandwidth.

/Yes I know 720p is better for sports
//Never noticed a difference.. Give me my 1080i
