Super Bowl 49!

Recommended Posts

Sorry, didn't have much of a write up for this....to be honest this game is as dead even and unpickable a contest as I can remember....and while I'm hoping and praying for an awesome game tonight, to be honest, the NFL Playoffs this year kinda sucked....we'd have one good game a week and a bunch of stinkers.....idiotic controversies on a weekly basis, and this whole deflated balls thing which I have NO INTEREST AT ALL IN (I've never taken a football and made it half a pound lighter, I can't tell you if it's easier to catch or if you even notice it....and hell if they're gonna let recievers wear I CAN MAKE ONE HANDED CATCHES IN MY SLEEP sticky gloves.....I honestly don't give a rat's damn about the weight of the football....and neither does the league since it helps inflate their perecious QB stats anyway....if it helped a defensive player make a tackle....oh they'd be ALL OVER IT....but the real reason this is a "story" is because it's the patriots.....case in point....as I was coming home from the gym, I heard a sports update "NFL officials looking into the Atlanta Falcons pumping in fake crowd noise to their home games"....this should shock no one....Atlanta sports fans are the most comatose fans in sports anyway....but isn't this "cheating" too?? Where's the wrath? Where's the media uprising? Oh yeah,.....it's not the Patriots and the Falcons are irrelevant....so the Fraud Fest goes on......like I said....this is a pick 'em game....and oddly enough the last time we had a game this dead even was the Titans and Rams....and we got a major snowstorm in the area THAT night too....ha.....well just enjoy the game, I hope it lives up to the hype....and we can discuss away as it goes on....once my chili is ready.....enjoy!!!

 

(I've actually flipped my pick like three times in thinking this up....but since when in doubt you take the team that has the least weaknesses (and I LOVE the troll value in this pick), I'll take the Patriots with a late score to win it.... 24-21

I start kind of hoping Seattle wins, until I see Carroll's weasel face.

I think I post this every year, but no sport has a worse trophy ceremony than the NFL. They hand the trophy to the owner in the form of an interview while the players are just bystanders. They can learn a lot from the NHL and soccer in that regard.

Congrats to CR...

 

Now, I don't know about everyone else, but that great game just left such an awful feeling in my mouth like the horrible, indefensible, insane decision to throw the ball completely overshadowed the Patriots win. Like starting tonight, ever single announcer, host, analyst will be going over that decision before anyone even mentions the player who intercepted the ball or that the Patriots won (I still don't know his name).

 

Besides the fact that you have Lynch, or the best running QB in football, and time on the clock and timeouts that eave the options absolutely endless for an offensive coordinator, the most amazing thing to me and that will be soon be forgot is.............................................................................Belichick gave up. He threw in the towel or got confused or just lost his head in the moment. With 1:40 left on the clock Seattle has the ball at the 5. With 24 seconds left they are running a 2nd down play at the 1. He didn't use any timeouts! He said it's done! With 1:40 left, you could have called a timeout, then let them score. With 1 minute left, you could have called timeout and let them score. Leaving plenty of time for Brady to get into field goal range. Instead he let it go down to 20 seconds and said I'l give you 3 plays from the 1 yard line to win the game with the biggest baddest back in NFL history. Game over.

 

But then the pass....

Whoever called that last play whether it was Carroll, Bevell or Wilson can die in a fire.  Literally ANYthing else they could have run from the one-yard line would have been better.  Play-action bootleg with the QB, throw a fade to the Foot Locker guy that was doing a Calvin Johnson imitation or (gasp!) give it to the best running back in the league from the one-yard line!  ANYthing but a slant in the middle of the field on the half-yard line :argh:

I was thinking Russell Wilson on the fake dive. Seattle overthought that one.

This. It's indefensible. Whoever called that play is the Scott Norwood of play callers.

Honestly it IS fitting the NFL season ends this way, it was one giant clusterfvck with contreversy up the wazoo from start to finish.  Why not end it with the worst play call imaginable to decide a Super Bowl?  Seems oddly fitting.

And roll me a blunt while you're at it... Ugh. Just disgusting.
