    Super Bowl XIX was basically a home game for the Niners, who beat the Dolphins back in January 1985. Stanford stadium is less than 50 miles from where Candlestick Park was located.

    Well it’s clear as day that Belichick owes 100% of his success to TB. The Trump curse again. Brady never stabbed Trump in the back while Belichick did with his snubbing of Trump and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    Yes and no; yes, Brady was the perfect QB for Belichick 's offensive ideas( They most likely wouldn't have won as many Super Bowls with Drew Bledsoe ), but Bill still built and designed the offenses ,with Charlie Weiss ,and other coordinators, Brady - as smart and talented as he is - couldn't have.

  3. Going for the Bills. Woke sports media doesn’t like their quarterback Josh Allen and it would be bad for the league from a ratings and hype perspective.

    Just saw a commercial for the show CBS is featuring after the Super Bowl. A remake of the 1980s series The Equalizer starring Queen Latifah. These people are beyond parody, how much longer can network TV keeping going like this?

    I followed it a bit as a adolescent/teenage kid, and watched again--at least when we were shooting pool-- when the Sea Chickens were doing well and my son had an interest a few years back,

    But it's the furthest thing from my mind now. I don't know how any white man--really non-black man--with a sack would watch that shit. Steve's "Super Bowl" and i thought ... they're still playing that?

    I've been of the mind that Brady is an avatar of the quintessential straight white male - the reasons for hating Brady and the reasons for hating straight white men are largely the same. They hate him for his seemingly effortless accomplishments (where the seeming lack of effort disguises extraordinary dedication and talent) and the fact that he is the G.O.A.T. ("Greatest Of All Time).

    So I have a rooting interest in favor of Brady - his success makes the same people who hate me and those like me very, very angry (out of sublimated admiration and embarrassment arising from a sense of their own inferiority).

    1. it was a clean hit. There was no flag thrown and everybody said it was a clean hit. On the other hand it was a blindside block and the one guy outweighed the other by 60 pounds.

    The use of advertising to "normalize" the numinous blacks and miscegnation is one of the most insidious psyops going, and no one, and I mean NO ONE, discusses this trend as outright propaganda in polite company.

    Johnny, an embarrassing beat down. It was like they had never heard of Travis Kelce. I thought we could make a game of it but they smothered Diggs and Allen went back to looking like a rookie. Hasn't learned to take a sack, run backwards while under pursuit and give up 18 -20 yards. Marv Levy level coaching, as in no adjustments. Buffalo was a pretender I guess, still don't have a ground game or know how to use a tight end over the middle. In the NFC game I picked Tampa Bay 31-28 over Green Bay, came close. Brady has the weapons, we will see if TB can contain Kelce. TB 28 - KC 24.

Symbolically that also foreshadowed the politics, the 2016 elections were like that SB, team whitey barely managing to hold of the onslaught of the team blackey.

    This will be reverse, team blackey will break the gates and a pogrom fill follow, I am predicting Chiefs win next 2 SB also, reverse of Buffalo Bills who lost 4 SBs in 90s. Ironically Bills beat Joe Montana’s come back with the Chiefs in the 1992 AFC championship game in their second run to losing the Super Bowl, now Chiefs get to beat the second coming of Brady with a different team but in SB.

    Johnny, an embarrassing beat down. It was like they had never heard of Travis Kelce. I thought we could make a game of it but they smothered Diggs and Allen went back to looking like a rookie. Hasn’t learned to take a sack, run backwards while under pursuit and give up 18 -20 yards. Marv Levy level coaching, as in no adjustments. Buffalo was a pretender I guess, still don’t have a ground game or know how to use a tight end over the middle. In the NFC game I picked Tampa Bay 31-28 over Green Bay, came close. Brady has the weapons, we will see if TB can contain Kelce. TB 28 – KC 24.

  72. My biggest take away from both games yesterday is the NFL needs better on field officials and fewer replay cameras for the telecast. You could probably call a penalty on every pass play if you watch the replays. Why don’t they start a school for officials, use college player that can’t make a team. school them all week at team prctices and make them full time. And what was up with the kick off that hit the goal line, was fielded, runner smothered and then overturned when a coach watched the replay. You could call a penalty on every play if the coaches could pick them off the jumbotrons. brady wins one more SB if TB takes advantage of their two good tight ends. Dink and dunk down the field.

  73. So Tampa has the home field but how many fans will actually be allowed in to cheer them on?

    I actually attended a few Bucs games in their hapless early years, and waited on line for hours for tix to their first-ever home playoff game, the only time I’ve ever done anything of that sort — although a few post-office mystery shops also featured epic wait times.

  74. Even before all the kneeling and wokieness I’d already had it with the NFL. The last interesting storyline I recall was Tim Tebow’s weirdly successful season dragging Denver to the playoffs (plus that win over the Steelers before Brady shot them down).

    So here’s a guy who carries a previously half-dead team on his back to like 10-4 as a starter, after already winning two championships in the SEC — America’s real pro football league. And then all you hear is how he can’t play, can’t pass, can’t do anything. If he weren’t white (and religious!) I expect the narrative would have been very different.

But I’m not going to give any time or money to an industry that hates me and wants me dead (but not after they bleed me dry on outrageously expensive tickets, concessions, apparel, and cable sports packages). Pop Warner is usually brought up in relation to little league (pee-wee) football, not the corporate enterprise of the modern NFL

    I haven't watched much football this year. Whenever I have it is all anti-white racism and BLM lies in the commercials.

    Still, Tom Brady making his 10th Super Bowl is pretty amazing. Congratulations to him.

    I’ve been of the mind that Brady is an avatar of the quintessential straight white male – the reasons for hating Brady and the reasons for hating straight white men are largely the same. They hate him for his seemingly effortless accomplishments (where the seeming lack of effort disguises extraordinary dedication and talent) and the fact that he is the G.O.A.T. (“Greatest Of All Time).

    So I have a rooting interest in favor of Brady – his success makes the same people who hate me and those like me very, very angry (out of sublimated admiration and embarrassment arising from a sense of their own inferiority).

    Yes and no; yes, Brady was the perfect QB for Belichick 's offensive ideas( They most likely wouldn't have won as many Super Bowls with Drew Bledsoe ), but Bill still built and designed the offenses ,with Charlie Weiss ,and other coordinators, Brady - as smart and talented as he is - couldn't have.

    Yes, the Texans eagerly snapped up the Pats supposed defensive wizard Bill O'Brian in 2013 or somewhere back then and though made some division playoffs, never won a conference championship. Or came very close to winning.

    Several of the QBs he had or ran off went on to stellar careers elsewhere.

    After the original owner died his kids kept him on for a couple of years but was fired this season after a terrible start and some horrible trades.

    O'Brian was worshiped by local media for a long while, until his nasty temper (and false promises) finally drove them away from that. Most figured he was in Houston for years too long. But the owners kept signing him to multiyear contracts (the year before he was fired, a 5 year one) and even made him the general manager. He finally ran out of others to blame.

    He was/is a 'tough guy' big mouth bully coach but despite his claims of working dawn to dusk daily, never seemed to show much sense. Deshaun Watson is a talented QB but like all Texans QBs (and before that Oilers) had to learn to pass off instantly.

    Amazingly the Oilers won the first two AFL championships. Then, in the third, the game went into overtime. The other team (Dallas Texans) won the toss and made the mistake of telling the referee they wanted to "kick to the clock". Dallas ended up winning anyway in double overtime and the Oilers/Texans haven't won (or been to) a AFL championship/Super Bowl since. Maybe it's a curse for not taking advantage of the opportunity.

    O'Brien was the QB coach/offensive coordinator for the Patriots while the real OC, Josh McDaniels, was off in Denver and St. Louis vainly trying to spread his coaching wings before returning to take back his rightful job. O'Brien was all smoke and mirrors, as are many coaches who got jobs simply because they spent time at the knee of The Master.

    Houston did do something right this year by signing Patriots director of player personnel, Nick Caserio. He's been the only guy that Belichick listened to regarding player selection. The Texans' organization should be kissing his 6 rings and listening to what he says.

    Tom Brady's achievement is something special but I haven't been following the NFL at all this year. I predict that the team w/the starting quarterback who has a White Mom will win. White Moms are just the best. Mine was at least. Although she didn't produce an NFL Superbowl QB. Shit.

Symbolically that also foreshadowed the politics, the 2016 elections were like that SB, team whitey barely managing to hold of the onslaught of the team blackey.

    This will be reverse, team blackey will break the gates and a pogrom fill follow, I am predicting Chiefs win next 2 SB also, reverse of Buffalo Bills who lost 4 SBs in 90s. Ironically Bills beat Joe Montana's come back with the Chiefs in the 1992 AFC championship game in their second run to losing the Super Bowl, now Chiefs get to beat the second coming of Brady with a different team but in SB.

    All that said, I will be waging a few shekels on Brady, TB's defense has the capability to disrupt Mahomes the way Bills could not.
