1987 --> 2001 was pretty terrible for Boston, but cmon, the last 15 years have been sick. And look at Atlanta vs Boston.

Such a brutal game. Was pulling so hard for Atlanta.

lemme guess, you also think the Pats taped the Rams walkthrough in 01?

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

I have been friends with these 3 guys for about 30 years. They all claim they have been huge Pats fans since 1985 when we were in our early teens. I constantly remind them of a photo I have with the 4 of us from 1999 at our first fantasy football draft. One had Cowboys gear on, one was wearing Packers gear and the other had Raiders gear on lol. It's not the Pats I hate, it's some of their bandwagon fans that annoy me.

I thought this was the exact definition of "STABLISH". The whole point is that they "establish the run" to get the defense to respect the run so they can be more efficient when passing. Obviously it's now just a meme whenever any team runs the ball but saying it's not for those reasons and then explaining the exact reasoning behind the meme in the first place is a bit weird.

Yeah, it wasn't a dumb stablish reason. It was a good stablish reason. I guess you could say.

I think NE was right to make the effort to keep ATL's pass rush honest. Other times when teams try to stablish it just seems a lot dumber. The falcons pass rush is considered a lot better than their run defense.

I wish I could be a bandwagon fan. I've lived in SF and LA for 20+ years now. I've tried to get into various local teams. Can't do it. I'm stuck with the Chiefs forever it seems. At least I have the Royals (except for that 29-year drought). Still not over Tom Watson losing the British Open.

I do start to root for KU whenever they make a deep run. I guess that's kind of bandwagon-y. I root harder for Mizzou.

On Alford's pick-six, why didn't he run along the one yard line to run the clock down closer to the 2-minute warning? (he got into end zone with 2:21 left)

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

Can you guys help me out with settling some Super Bowl exotic prop bets? I'm running a contest for fun in 4L. I've spent 4+ hrs scouring the internet for these results with no success. The major problems are the "will commentators say X" props. Next year I'm going to stick with more vanilla ones if I do it again. The contest was 40 questions, I've solved 31 and have these 9 left.

Will Joe Buck or Troy Aikman mention that Tom Brady was drafted in the sixth round of the NFL draft during the broadcast?

Will Joe Buck or Troy Aikman reference the game's odds (spread/total/underdog/favorite) during the broadcast?

Number of times "dynasty" is said during the broadcast (over/under 3.5)

Will Michael Vick be said during the broadcast?

Will Aaron Hernandez be said during the broadcast?

Will any player do the Dirty Bird touchdown celebration?

How many commercials will Peyton Manning appear in during the Super Bowl broadcast? (over/under 1.5)

Will James Harden appear in a commercial during the Super Bowl broadcast?

Will “Matty Ice” be said during the broadcast? (over/under 0.5)

Just get in the end zone man. Could have burned up like two more seconds, who cares

Just watched a replay of the game and read through the thread.

Truly a great experience. I recommend it for every SE regular Pats fan.

What's funny is people forget this call went against NE earlier in the season. I think vs NYJ they called it when Testaverde lost the ball so in this game BB said he knew they were going to change the call.

Here it is https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuck...ots_.282001.29
