I'm reading the comments on the Patriots & Rams Twitter accounts and I find it just so entertaining reading through lol.

 

 

Oh yeah and don't forget the throngs of disgruntled folks vowing never to watch the NFL again after New England won.

 

Of course...those same folks will be back on the saddle come August.

You guys know what tonight was? What Super Bowl LIII turned out to be?

 

Chess.

 

It was a brutal mind game that would've tested the finest minds on this planet. And to be honest, when it comes to the NFL, I don't mind seeing that on occasion.

 

Yes. I hear the 'sick of NE' comments that have permeated message boards and social media the last 15 years, but, whether those out there like it or don't, I say.

 

Congratulations to the 6-Time Super Bowl Champions, the New England Patriots.

 

And to be honest, I've kind of not minded the ride the NFL's been on since the Pats 1st.

 

And, oddly, I want that ride to keep going a little while longer.

 

The Rams? Sad to say, but if you want to win a game of either chess or football, you need two important things...Patience and Experience.

 

Compared to New England, this Rams team was a young one with future promise. This will help the players on that team moving forward.

 

Jared Goff will claim Lombardi one day, and he will credit Super Bowl LIII for helping him get there.

 

But tonight, right now? Duck boats will roll and float in Boston Tuesday morning.

 

I liked Super Bowl LIII. And I hope a lot of others did too.

 

😃

They usually do come back.

 

It doesn't go for everything. But there's a couple things I don't take too seriously, when it comes to these types of sports discussions. Part of it, whether the team wins or loses, I take it in good fun.

It isn't just that the Patriots win all the time... it's that even sometimes when they should lose, they get lucky and somehow win.  The Seahawks not running it with Marshawn Lynch, the Falcons averaging a bajillion yards per carry and then abandoning the run with a lead.  That's the frustrating part.

 

As much as I'm annoyed by them winning this game... the McVay hype might've been worse had they pulled one out even with the terrible offense tonight.  At least Brady and Belichick are genuinely great.

Sometimes the Patriots also get unlucky and lose. The Tyree catch, Tom Brady dropping the pass last year... 

 

I dislike the Patriots as much as the next guy but the onus on stopping their wins isn't on them, it's on the rest of the NFL. Belichick is probably the greatest coach in NFL history. If everyone was so tired of the Patriots, some owner should have tried to lure him away

So the one silver lining...

Julian Edelman is, I think, the first Jewish Super Bowl MVP. That in and of itself is cool, but given the state of the world? It’s really :censored: ing cool.

And also, to anyone who may be overly upset that the Patriots won.

 

The Pats blew their perfect season. 18-1.

The Belichick-Brady era Patriots are the love child of the Parcells era Giants & Walsh-Montana era 49ers.

But still, it just feels like its impossible to root for anyone else in the NFL these days. However, these are the Patriots we're talking about, a team that has been accused of cheating for almost eleven YEARS.

Yeah just like the one guy on YouTube that kept saying he was gonna stop watching the NBA each year the Phoenix Suns didn't win the #1 pick in the Draft Lottery until last year.

I don't think I am the only one here who surpassed the Maroon 5 performance for the return of WWE Halftime Heat at the WWE Performance Center.

Jeff Fisher sits in his den as the game ends. He picks up his 1999 AFC championship ring. "To get there and come up short, I know how it feels. After all," He sets the ring down and looks at a photo of himself on the sidelines in a Rams jacket. He smirks under his graying mustache. "I got you there. You knew you'd regret firing me someday. Today's that day, I guess."

 

He turns off the TV, goes to his kitchen, and microwaves a mediocre TV dinner for the fourth straight night.

I didn’t think the game was boring so much as it was weird; I really expected this to be a shootout and I’m shocked Brady didn’t throw a TD tonight with as well as he was connecting with Edelman and Gronk. I was also floored that Gurley was basically non-existent for the most part and I wasn’t sure what to think of that.

 

I did expect Goff to have some jitters but I thought he’d eventually shake them off and find a groove; he never did, and frankly he sucked tonight. He missed more than a few guys that were wide open, made some pretty questionable reads, and that last interception was a nailed coffin as soon as it left his hands. I didn’t expect him to have a Brady-type game by any means, but I expected him to play a whole lot better.

 

Both defenses were very solid tonight, and in a weird way, that’s a huge credit to both the Rams for holding the Patriots to only 13 (and no Brady pass TD’s) but also a credit to the Patriots’ offense for making the absolute most of the chances they were given against such a tough defense.

 

The game was pretty well officiated and the Pats won it fair. They did thier job, and you can’t fault them for that. Sure I loathe them as much as the next guy, but still. They earned this one for sure.

He hears a phone ring and it's Oliver Luck, the commissioner of the XFL asking if he's interested in a return to coaching.

And the Rams join the 1971 Miami Dolphins as the only teams to never to score a touchdown in a Super Bowl.

Don't forget we've all haven't forgotten Fisher's mismanagement of QB's.

You just had one.  

 

Would have been nice to have that be two.

 

I mean, if Nick Foles didn't have the game of his life and if not for a missed XP and failed 2PC in Denver..... we could be looking at 5 straight AFC crowns and 4/5 Lombardis at worst.

Bro, I’d get teary-eyed if the Cowboys made the NFC title game let alone win a Super Bowl lol.

 

If they ever win one, I’d finally be free from being fully emotionally invested in a sports franchise. I’d be good forever because I saw my all-time favorite team win a championship. 

 

Being freed from this sounds lovely to me lol. 

 

When the Bucs won, I remember sitting in bed feeling happy but thinking, wait that’s it? Ok, this is different than I expected. It was fun, but also somewhat empty. Sort of disappointing, actually. It was like, this a great accomplishment, but it’s not my accomplishment. I was just rooting for it. I can’t say it “set me free”. 

 

BUT, then the Giants finally won a World Series. That actually felt like a sense of freedom to me. And it was one I wasn’t expecting, either. I kinda thought it would make me a bigger fan, but instead that run it just killed a certain portion of the passion I had. Again, don’t get me wrong, still love the Giants and always will. But that yearning for something I’ve never had and that urge to cling to every moment went away. Honestly, there’s a part of me that sort of misses it. It stemmed from a lot of the same things. Fun to witness it, but it didn’t change :censored: for me personally other than draining my bank account on championship gear. 

 

In a weird way, I actually really enjoy sports hating on teams like the Pats and guys like Brady even more now because it’s sort of all I have left. But just like winning, none of it really matters and I’m over it in about a half hour. 

 

 

In other words, sports championships aren’t worth shortening your life for.

Now the question is how many members of the Patriots' band will be back next year?

 

I mean, is Gronk the only one that is 50/50.

Besides Gronk, all of them to win six straight Super Bowls.
