    SuperBowl 53 Patriots-Rams

    I will say this though - that NFL 100 commercial was the best thing Ive seen in a long time. It had tons of classic players and some modern ones too. Loved it. Brady saying "hold these" was freeging epic. Manning with the bum arm.... Ed Reed sneaking around, Franco with the "catch", etc, etc. Brought back great memories for me!!!! AWESOME!

    Yeah - or Jared Goff just sucks which is what Ive been hearing. He slowly got worse as the season went on. The novelty wore off and they started playing professional level teams instead of chicken- opponents. I think the Lambs are going to be bad next year. Goff blows.

    Bear in mind that ratings are not always perfect data. They arent in peoples living rooms. What I mean is - people still had their SB parties which means the game was "on" but NOT everyone was watching. We were palying euchre with friends in a different room. It was obvious that last nights game was an atrocity and simply TERRIBLE football. Its as if neither team deserved to be there. I dont care what the "ratings" were.

    Wow - Im glad I stuck to my guns and avoided this obvious joke of a game. What a disaster. The Rams SUCK. Obviously NE isnt all that either. The defense apparently bailed out NE's offense....or the Rams really do suck that bad. The Chiefs and Saints would have been a much more fun game. Oh well. Who caares anyways?

    No question that a controversial call will probably irritate millions of people either way it goes. The NFL is getting famous for such things. It’s time to get RID of replay and the excessive delays and hassle it adds to the game. Somehow for like 80 years the league managed to exist and thrive without it. It’s stupid and I’m sick of it.

    I did forget about the squares, side bets, etc, etc. That there is worth some viewers, no doubt.

    This is a fair assessment and exactly what I mean. The Niners, Steelers, Cowboys, and to a lesser extent the Redskins and even the Bills had nice runs at various times in different decades. It was cool watching the acsension, albeit not for the fans of the direct enemies of those teams. It was enjoyable watching the quality football being played. And, of course, the "root against the bad guys" paradigm kicked in which also draws in viewers. For fans of OTHER teams or just casual NFL fans there ere certainly haters but it never got outright ridiculous or irritating. Now? Sorry but its just boring. What are the interesting storylines? We've heard the same crap for years now with nothing new to add. As you said "Overstay their welcome" is a perfect way to put it. Me and Im sure some others just cant care anymore. It doesnt matter. Its lost its lustre and intrigue. Thats what reptitiveness does. Its not rocket science to understand this. Im not sure if the "root against the bad guys or the incumbent" is still working. Ratings will stay the same or even be fine but thats because people are going to still have ther parties and all of that. I just think quite a few viewers will find something else to do OR not really watch the game as they might have when the matchup was more interesting and not the same old shiat. Due to the lousy AFC, its very likely that NE gets in again next year. Oh well. Enjoy. YAWN.

    Super Bowl Prediction: post yours

    One thing is for sure - a lot of people are getting BORED with this crap. How can you not? The AFC is entirely incompetent and thats part of the reason for the "default" playoff/SB run the Pats get partially handed to them every season. KC has some potential but needs a defense. Put this NE team in the NFC and watch the results be quite different. Oh well, you have to give them credit for milking a terrible divison and overall conference now for a while. Props. At least when Baltimore had Ray and Ed or the Colts/Broncos had Peyton there was resistance. Now? The AFC is like a Division 3 college conference. Total joke. The NFL and the NBA have the same problem problem: The Golden State Warriors & NE Patriots are just dull now. Even watching or caring because you want them to lose isnt enough to make it matter. Who cares, other than Boston residents or Golden State fans? What does one get out of watching the same old crap over and over? Sure, hanging out at a friends place getting hammered at a SB party is one thing but does anyone actually care about the game? Especially when its just going to have numerous stoppages, reviews, bad calls, and various other flow-killing things happen? And then Monday morning it goes back to not mattering one bit. Its just entertainment. Like the WWF. Yawn.

    Sounds good to me but then I suspect Brady wouldnt be so effective. Hmmmmm.

    SuperBowl 53 Patriots-Rams

    Not sure about that. Honestly it could be even worse if the Pats keep making the SB and losing. I Dont find it intriguing at all but I can see how some people might. Its dull at this stage for me. Also tired of hearing about how God-like The pats are. Yeah, yeah, we get it.... thanks. lol. Fair enough. I dont hate the Pats either, believe it or not. No reason to. I just hate the same team being so dominant in the conference year after year. If it was the Colts or Raiders or whomever Id be saying the same thing.

    Pats 78, Rams 4. Yes, the Lambs will get TWO safeties.

    Repeat: when the same team or teams keep getting in, it starts to lose its luster. No way around it for people who arent fans of the team that keeps making it. This isnt hard to understand. Like non Yankee fans werent getting sick of the Yankees in the mid 90s? Or pick any other long title game/series run in any sport. People are already tired of Golden State in the NBA. The games themselves could be nail biters. Thats not the point.

    Right? Its NOT a personal thing at all. Brady is a good guy, Belichick is actually quite a character and funny if you pay attention to how he plays the media. But, the same team over and over again in the big game just gets old. It'd be no different with any other team if it got out of hand like this. Hell, in a few years we could be saying the same thing about Mahomes and Reid or Goff and McVey. Its not "hating" for the sake of it. Its just that variety is the spice of life. This applies to football too. A few appearences and titles is fine and has happened before with other franchises. But 20 years of the same old shiat? Sorry, boooooooooooring as hell.

    Patriots @ Chiefs AFC Championship Thread

    What does a farm animal have to do with it, Eddie? Please elaborate. Hard to disagree here. Since 2001 it’s been all wonderful and they’ve accomplished a lot but it’s always "something". A whole bunch "yeah, buts." That’s it’s how it is and always will be. It’s weird wth the Pats. One one have it’s amazong what they’ve done in their salary cap era. On the other hand though, doesn’t that raise questions as to how? Is the rest of the AFC THAT bad or are the pats just THAT amazing? A fair debate to have. As for this game, Brady didn’t even play that great. Three picks, ok two but you get the idea. It was a TEAM effort as it usually is with big games. His line blocked their balls off from the highlights I saw. Doesn’t that matter? Don’t even bother. It’s Eddie jr. what do you expect? Common sense? Logic? You won’t get it.

    Nah - didnt watch last year either. With the advent of YouTube you can watch the important plays in about 10 mins or so for any NFL game and that gets to the point. Then you can avoid the never ending ads, stoppages and time wasting. If your fav team isnt in the game and you dont care for the matchup there is no reason to watch it. Not a big deal. Enjoy the game if you do watch it. Butt is fine. Been keeping the fiber intake up so all good there. Just having some fun with the TUCK rule. I suggest relaxing..... paranoid Pats fan.
