Sorry Riddick..........

Post by kbot » 02-04-2019 05:54 PM

Sorry that your Packers didn't make it, but glad the Pats won again!!!!!! :)

You just witnessed the greatest defensive performance in Super Bowl history: Here's how the Patriots did it

At the end of a dour Super Bowl in Atlanta only a mother could love, it really shouldn't have been a surprise that Bill Belichick was the one standing triumphant.

Last year, Tom Brady produced what was arguably the greatest single performance in Super Bowl history, only for Belichick's defense to get run over by Eagles backup Nick Foles. On Sunday, with Brady struggling en route to his worst passing performance in a title game, Belichick's defense saved the day. The Patriots delivered Belichick's masterpiece in their 13-3 win over the Rams.

What we saw from the Patriots on Sunday night was the best defensive performance we have ever seen in a Super Bowl.

Lemme tellya, between the Pack's poor performance this past season, the Patriots' ongoing SB domination, & the way some players still enjoy injecting politics into the game? I'm ready for a change...

I hear ya - can't we just play or watch a game without having to have some cause involved?

I was pretty bored by the game and went to bed at one point but (surprisingly....) my wife was watching the game, so I got up and saw the final ten minutes or so. But, it was an excruciatingly painful game to watch......

But, I'll take the win :mrgreen:

If not excruciating, it still musta hurt, the Patriot's door to Super Bowl LIV slamming shut as it did eh?

So then, is it over as far as you're concerned, like you couldn't care less about the remaining post-season, OR might you yet be entertaining any thoughts about tuning into the playoffs anyway?

I don't know about the other matchups but the Seahawks play the Packers in GB tomorrow. Should be more than interesting, even without blizzard conditions! -

Here's highlights from their "SnowBowl @Lambeau" '07 NFC Divisional game

You could have seen this one coming - at least since game 8 or 9 of the season. Don't know what next year will bring. I'm watching San Fran and seeing how Jimmy G will do - Pats shouldn't have let him go.......

Hmm. I see San Fran took out the Vikings today. And that they'll be hosting the winner of GB v Seattle next week? VERY Interesting...

SF 37 GB 20 Final - Hate to say it, but The Pack was out-classed - While to their credit, they never gave up, ATST in that first half they gave up too much, KWIM?

Given the disappointing play we'd seen up to that point, I wasn't expecting that 4th quarter comeback...
In the end they fell well short yet managed to avoid total embarrassment. That's kind of a victory ainit?

And I repeat myself - sorry Riddick.

If it's any consolation to you, and, to most football fans outside New England, the Pats dynasty is probably over.......... I'm going wit SF. Bellichik should have never let Jimmie G go......
