    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    To be honest I'm perfectly fine with the torch being passed. Mahomes and the Chiefs Goff and the Rams Baker Mayfield and.....the Browns? Sure why not. It'd be great to have a new generation of QBs and different teams mixing it up now. Imagine the Chiefs and the Browns in the AFC Championship and the Rams and the uh....Who else is up and coming in the NFC again? Maybe Jimmy G and the Niners? In any case, I feel this could be a fitting end to this dynasty now. It's come full circle (started with the Rams, ends with the Rams) on the exact same day. Be a great way to close out the story. Of course watch them somehow make it back YET AGAIN for a 4th Super Bowl, tying the Bills (may as well get another record) and the whole cycle starts anew. See you all in Miami?

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Man if you're a fan of defensive football and seeing offenses actually wake up only in the late 4th Quarter than Super Bowl LIII was certainly for you. It was sorta boring especially with your team in it, but knowing that at any point in the game either offense could actually figure out what the hell they were doing and get into the redzone made it intense to watch still. Congrats to the Patriots for their sixth League Championship! One thing I can say from watching this run of the 6XSBCNEP (Can we use this as well BBTV?) is that unprecedented doesn't begin to describe it. Right now they're tired with the Steelers for most Super Bowl Championships. The difference between the two? The Steelers won their first 4 in the 70s with the latest 2 after the turn of the century. These 6 have happened within the past 20 years, WITH THE SAME QUARTERBACK! It's unreal. On the other end, to the fans of the other 31 teams and the Patriots fatigue and literal burnout: I get it. Most of us truly do get it. You might not believe us but we do. I remember as a kid hearing about the Niners winning again or the Cowboys winning again (Reminder that the Cowboys in the 90s also won 3 out of their last 5). But this run is definitely different in that regard. When the Niners won their 5th, it was a different QB. it felt different. When the Cowboys won in 1995, it was a different Head Coach. It was different. But we get it. There's a jealousy and hatred for teams that seem to continue to win it all...again...and again...and again. As someone mentioned earlier, it's like watching baseball in the 40s and 50s: You knew it would be the Yankees (or another New York team) winning the World Series. It gets stale after a while. And two decades of this certainly can wear down even the heartiest of football fans. Personally? I'm still relishing in every championship right now. Because we know the horizon is looming now. it has to be at this point. Questions about Gronk and the now annual questions about Belichik and Brady and whether they can even keep this run going any more are starting. We can see the end draws nearer and nearer and eventually this insane story of Boston sports dominance will be closed. but 12 championships in 4 different sports in 17 years is pretty damn good!

    infrared41's Numerical Super Bowl Trivia

    Super Bowl IV, 65 Toss Power Trap, Len Dawson (#16) handed off to Mike Garrett (#21) for a touchdown with extra point (7)
  7. Why was this never used?! That SD is really great as a starting point for an identity. Has sort of the wavy-ness that they had tried to do much later, and maintains the Brown/Gold. This is a really unique design imo Also, fantastic that they're going back to Brown for 2020. The designs described sound exactly how they should: not too overdone and maintaining a classic design with a truly unique scheme.

    Twins' new alternate uniform

    When did the Twins become such a disjointed mess? This new wordmark is awful. The shoehorning of gold is awful. They look AWFUL!!! There is no reason to not come up with a modern script that matches the "Minnesota" wordmark beautifully. the "Twins" on the blue alt is like a drunk tried to write "Twins" and forgot how cursive works. Justifying adding gold because "the ballpark has it" is just a horrid decision. It would be like the Red Sox adding Green to the RWB because Fenway has green walls. Awful awful awful! And they looked so much better when they opened up Target Field. What the hell happened?

    2018-2019 NFL Potential Super Bowl Uniform Matchups

    Remember too that the Away socks are a holdover from when Adidas was the uniform provider for the Patriots before the massive league-wide deal with Reebok in 2002. We also forget this interesting uniform combo Obviously the more recent Color Rush uniforms are better designed. Would look amazing with the home pants tbh

    First Look: Super Bowl LIV Logo

    That beveling is interesting. At least it has a bit more flair too it than those early ones. Be interesting to see what the local logo system (secondary one that isn't fully templated) looks like

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I've always thought them just playing a full 5th Quarter would help solve a lot of issues as far as "Fairness" and whatnot. Even if a team scores, you still gotta finish out the Quarter. Sudden Death is exciting to an extent but you don't have a Sudden Death 4th Quarter. Just play a full Quarter. During the Regular season, if after the 15 minutes it's still tied, it's a tie. During the playoffs obviously an extension of that needs to happen to help determine a legit winner. I dislike the college OT because it's not evocative of all-facet football. You put the offense almost in the Red Zone and see if the defense can stop them with that pressure already on them. People say it's fair but it's just as advantageous to the offense as is the coinflip.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Official Reviews should be done by the booth. Remove the concept of Challenges. Every play should be watched in real time and if something is so questionable like a catch or even a no-call like the DPI or brushing-the-facemask as a Roughing the Passer, it should be overturned by the booth. The refs should be there to watch the ball and make the decisions on the field, but it's clear that the quality of calls have declined significantly in recent years. Maybe because we're more aware of how flawed the human eye is sometimes. If it's questionable - it should be reviewed if it is borderline - it should be reviewed if it's obvious and missed by the ground crew - it should be reviewed if it could have a major impact on the game - it should be reviewed Their goal should be to ensure the call is correct on the field. Too many mistakes, too many no-calls, and WAY too many trigger-happy calls are happening now. It shouldn't be this hard to ensure a game is called correctly

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    So to derail the Pats weariness for a little bit, this Super Bowl matchup is interesting It'll be played on the exact day as Super Bowl XXXVI, when the Patriots beat the Rams to start this insane run On the same token, I feel that if the Patriots win, Brady will finally retire out on top. (I'm probably wrong cause he's freaken bionic at this point). But IF it were to happen, that means that defeating the Rams again would bookend this entire era. It starts with the Rams, and it could end with the Rams. Oh and the World Series was LA vs Boston. Super Bowl is now LA vs Boston. Place your bets for Lakers/Clippers vs Celtics and Kings vs Bruins!

    Feels like people don't grasp how large Texas really is. Especially between the 3 cities. For example, I had to take a bus from San Antonio to Wichita Falls and it took over 6 hours! AND WE NEVER LEFT THE STATE!!! It's not like Austin borders Houston or Dallas. There is significant distance between the cities that is enough to warrant the potential for a distinct fanbase that doesn't overlap with FC Dallas or the Dynamo. It would be like people arguing that the Kings up in Sacramento takes away from the Clippers fanbase. There's enough distance that there isn't any overlap or dilution of the fanbases.
