    Yueck.

    The credit belongs to the defense on this one.

    I think the N.E. punter should be MVP! Not Edelman.

    How many records were broken. One I think.

    Longest Punt! By the Rams Punter. YEA! :D That was an exciting roll wasn't it?

    MVP was a tough one. Nothing really stood out like a sore thumb. Like someone mentioned, probably NE defense as a whole. Other than that I was thinking Edelman or Gronk because it seemed like they were the only ones making plays. Brady just didn't do enough.

    Correction, they, including Brady, did just enough. People just don't appreciate good defense.

    Well therein lies the problem with an award such as the MVP. It has to be whittled down to just one guy, which is pretty silly actually.

    Rams got to the Super Bowl running the ball. Gurley was definitely hurt the last few weeks. All LA football teams have a lot of trouble selling out stadiums. Why do you think they leave? Most boring Super Bowl ever with two boring teams. Now comes the most boring part of winter for me. No more football.

    What an amazing turnaround for the Pats from how they played earlier in the season. I don't think anyone (including me) expected them to make it to the bowl let alone win it all once again.

    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Nope. Rams got into the superbowl by not having two severely missed penalties not called upon them. Enough said. I really don't care who was in the superbowl, or who wins. But to say that there weren't missed calls in the Saints Rams game is ridiculous. Honestly, I gave up on watching football back when Tony Dorsett was still playing. I hope others enjoy it though.

    WOW!! no player on your favorite team has ever been suspended for using performance enhancing drugs? What team might that be that does no wrong; or better wording might be doesn't get caught doing it?

    Can't compare an individual player using PED's to a coach stealing plays from opposing teams, or to their QB deliberately altering footballs. Here's the list...
    https://www.elitedaily.com/sports/history-new-england-patriots-allegedly-cheating/910436

    And for what it's worth, I think players that get caught doping should be disciplined a bit more severely than a 4 game suspension. Teams that get caught placing bounties on the heads of opposing players for the purpose of causing severe injury should have any and all personnel involved in the scheme banned from the sport for life and those participants criminally charged for assault and battery.

    I also believe convicted felons should be barred from taking the field for life.

    ^^^^^Again; who's your favorite team? I'm guessing they're squeaky clean but could post their rap sheet as well because we do want to be fair. Hmmm using PED's isn't cheating? Check again; that extra 20lbs of muscle or shaving a few 1/10s off a 50 yard dash is more often than not the difference between winning and losing. It most certainly is cheating that's why there's random testing.

    Please cite for me where, in any of my posts, I said I was ok with my team cheating. I said that I despise cheating in any form. I would rather my team lose honorably than win with a bunch of asterisks next to their title.

    A few footballs out of several were slightly, SLIGHTLY, over inflated in a game were it wouldn't have mattered if he was using a Nerf...that's your basis for cheating? Really? That may be a new definition for ignorance, or hating.

    They were under-inflated. Making them easier to throw, catch and handle. :D

    It's been on the record now that the ball guy took them into a porta-john to let air out. On cold day games, who wouldn't want a softer football to handle? But there is a standard pressure.

    And that’s why Brady and a few others lost their text messages, they lost draft picks, suspended for a few games to start the season, and fined a huge amount of money... just so you can call me ignorant and a hater. I had no idea I had that kind of pull with the league office. Maybe next year I will just ask for some Super Bowl tickets.

    Lol well ok Dudley Do-Right you must hate everyone in every sport known to man cuz they all do it in one form or another because "if ya ain't cheatin ya ain't competin"

    I'll use our beloved hobby as a quick example; Tell me you've never exaggerated the truth on an expensive piece of equipment to your significant other or exceeded the posted speed limit to acquire it or perhaps sold a piece of equipment and didn't report it as income on your taxes?

    Get over it and please post your favorite team's rap sheet while you're at it. :)
