Yes, they should have been there and I believe Brees and his weapons would have caused Bill far more misery than Goff and his guys.

It was one of the few games where the punters were compelling factors. That's sad.

It's also the only Super Bowl I can think of that was contested by the third and fourth best teams in the NFL.
Pretty well sums it up. Old Bill threw together a great plan, but LA's failures were fueled by Goff's nerves as well as the defense. I thought Brady showed some signs of decline too at times. 14 punts, 9 by LA.

You're entitled to your opinion. I think Kansas City showed, in one half, they were a better team than New England, Hunt or no Hunt. They were a stupid neutral zone penalty away from being there.

Maybe just a coin flip away from being there. Not sure I would bet against Mahomes guiding them to a game ending TD if they won that toss.

I thought it was very intriguing. Course, I have always preferred defensive battles in any sport. Knew once they intercepted it was likely game over.

Agree with most on here it was not necessarily the two best teams, but still, both played their hand and got to the last game.

The good news was that there were no officiating issues.

This team was Billís masterpiece. They probably had less talent than every single team they played in the playoffs, yet dominated every game statistically

Despite your assessment of Goff pre-game, I just don't think we'll ever see "steely resolve" on this face - ever - even if in a few years he has a couple MVP trophies....




....but, wait...... Doesn't he look kind of familiar........?

I know. Maybe he has a Weeden-genomic link!?

Good God...........the horror....the horror.......
Weirdo being hardcore weird again.

Said it was the lowest rated SB in 5 or so years?
New Orleans had an unordinarily low rating with their boycott.

Personally, I watch every super bowl and the whole thing. 2 years ago I almost walked home from the USO at halftime but figured....it was TB12 and I had nothing else to do anyways.


It really comes down to how many frings people they can get to watch. The true football fans will tune it.

New Orleans did do a pretty good job of boycotting. I'm sure they loved the final score.


I think Goff was a bit broken by the Bears game. He never looked quite the same. Maybe they found and showed something that others could exploit, maybe it left him rattled, or both.

Surprisingly solid article from Deadspin on how the Pats shut down the Rams: https://deadspin.com/how-the-patriot...can-1832326941

Quote:
The Rams love to use tight bunch formations and jet sweeps to give pass catchers plenty of running room and to pull defenders in different directions. But they also came into the game having used “11” personnel (one running back, one tight end, three wide receivers) nearly all the time. The Patriots of late had been pretty good at stopping “11” personnel.

The way the Rams thrive is to frequently show teams the same look, then to attack them based on what McVay and Goff see at the line of scrimmage pre-snap. Their preferred method for doing this is to line up quickly, and for McVay to help Goff with diagnosing the defense before his in-helmet headset shuts off with 15 seconds remaining on the play clock. But, as Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer reported, the Patriots countered this by basically having two play calls sent in—one each for before and after the snap. The intent was to confuse Goff, and it worked.

The key for NFL defenses has always been to show one look and then change to another but doing so in a way the offense hasn't seen you do. QBs know defenses will change their initial look.

Pat did a fantastic job no doubt. I think the LAR went away from the running game too early and Gurley has to be hurt a bit, doesn't he?

Had read a piece that NE liked the scheme the Lions used, and adopted some of it but of course, did it better!
