Hate the B/B Pats as much as you can muster, but no denying all SEVEN of their SBs have delivered as supremely exciting games from a fan perspective.

the Pats never get blown out. I remember they played the 49ers when they were good and got down 28-0 or something and barely lost.

Brady GOAT.

Eh, the Lawyer Milloy game, the wildcat Ronnie Brown game, the Ray Rice debacle, the Arrowhead massacre, it happens.

But anyone who bet against them on the 2nd half line tonight, lololol.

Re: SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

I really think as brutal as this loss is, it's better than losing a blowout like 35-13 and be proven to be frauds. I mean if you can lead a SB by 19 after 3 quarters, then it's an easier to sell to say you can win a SB imo

Of course. The 03 Red Sox had a World Series appearance in their immediate grasp and pissed it away by keeping in Pedro one inning too many in the ALCS game 7. Dum-dum. The 04 team came back from an 0-3 ALCS deficit to win the whole thing.

I would bet on Falcons barely making playoffs as WC next year, but then shipping it. At the right odds, ofc.

Re: SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

if they get blown out - it would be "they need to retool the offense - GB and Seattle weren't that good defensively, a good defense can shut them down", etc etc.

you'd be questioning the whole team instead of being able to write it off to bad play-calling with a lead

Re: SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

broncos got utterly eviscerated and changed nothing. won it all 2 years later

cardinals lost on the final play 8 years ago. never got back

football has way too much variance for a super bowl appearance to ever be a certainty unless you're the pats. there's a non-zero chance this game gives ryan a thousand yard stare of shookness he never recovers from

Spurs in '14 also bounced back from a brutal loss to win the title the next year.

But football is a little tougher, just so tough to get back to begin with. That division could certainly be better too.

I dunno, we'll see.

it's a worse loss for the emotions of this game, but going forward for next year, they know they can win a ring - if they lose 45-0 , they were an overrated joke.

Re: SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

Edelman sounded concussed yet again in his NFLN interview... talked pretty slowly and took him forever to turn his head to the speaker. Not surprised, he destroys his body given his size.

But people compare Julio's crazy catch to Edelman's like they compare Julio to Edelman. Different players, different skills. Julio is way more athletic and makes the better catch but Edelman's is still sick and beats DBs like a drum.

James White set a Super Bowl record by scoring 20 points (3 touchdowns, 1 two-point conversion).

The old record must have been 18. Several players have three touchdowns.
