I refused to watch the postgame. About a year or so ago, he came across to me as having some cognitive impairment. I would not be surprised. He is up in age.

Yeah I didn't watch the post game either

Maybe Atlanta can beat them. I definitely think they have a better chance than Pittsburgh ever had. But my money will probably still be on Tom Brady

At least the Packers are not the NFC representative. That would have been a difficult Super Bowl to watch. Now I have a team I can root for:  the Falcons!

Because for the past 12 years I've seen some of the worst officiated games and most questionable things iv ever seen in my 20+ years of watching the NFL.

 

If you didn't notice the Pats corners tugging literally every single play, the 3 chop blocks that went uncalled, the blatant pass interference calls missed, the miraculous non fumble that was a fumble but didn't have a clear recovery even though someone came out of pile with it... then I'm not sure what to tell you.

 

It's not just this game it is literally every playoff game I've watched of the Pats these past 12ish years.  No one denies they are extremely well coached.  The issue is when that well coached team gets into the playoffs and the refs ensure that they make no mistake even though they do.  It's an unfair advantage.  Also it's not just the Pats there are a couple other teams that get the "special treatment" but those teams aren't as well coached as the Pats so it isn't as noticeable.

Logan Ryan's stupid *** can literally hug WRs and he never once gets called for interference guy never ever even looks at the ball

Not a single penalty was called on either team until the 3rd quarter. Are you seriously claiming that for more than half the game, only the Patriots committed penalties that weren't being called? Come on...that's ridiculous.

I gotta say - in a year where the NFL went out of it's way to try to cut the legs out from the Pats with the 4 game suspension, it's pretty laughable to read all of the "Refs don't call penalties on them" stuff.

The refs did not call much of anything on EITHER side in last nights game, they let them play football. (I want say was like 6 total penalties called) both sides got away with a lot.

 

as for the Brady fumble, per the announcers the rule is if there is not a clear recovery on video the ball stays with the offensive team. It is trying get the tugging and fighting out of the pile with this rule. (I don't like it either but it's the rule.)

 

i think its hillarious you spotted all the Pats miscues missed but missed like the 3-4 PI on Pitt that were missed as well as numerous holding calls etc.

how come they've only won one title in 10 years?     Just asking.

 Why did the colts onky win one title in Manning entire career? It isn't easy getting there and even harder to win it. Being 4-2 pretty damn good, and this year they brought a D with them.

I haven't read through every entry in this thread yet so, I will apologize in advance if someone else has already said this...

 

When Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams ran into the end zone on their 1st touchdown, didn't he use the ball like a music conductor's wand similar to a prop warranting a penalty for excessive celebration? Why wasn't a flag thrown by the refs? 

 

I know spinning the ball like a top is deemed okay, but Williams used the football as a wand prop as he bowed.

Wow, that run by Blount was amazing!

I'll bet Mike Tomlin is wishing or at least 2nd guessing that decision to cut him in the back of his mind now.

Congrats on the win. Honestly if Gronk was playing you would be the favorite anyways. You guys deserve to represent the AFC.

Yes, Brady & Hogan played an outstanding game. Jesus. But, then again, Brady always has Pittsburgh's number.

The Ravens still play the Patriots the toughest of any team at Gillette. 

Yes, Baltimore doesn't fear NE at home at all & I always enjoy those collision courses between those 2 teams in bad weather. Destined classics.

Thanks man ... We had the bounces go our way tonight also.  We are relatively healthy save for gronk, sucks that bell went out for the Steelers, AFC a tad weak this year, so we were able to hold serve and win

 

I like ATL and as much as I want the pats to win, I will be happy if the falcons win

I

I really respect your fairness & objectivity Yehoodi. You're a good dude & you should be proud of how far your squad has come this yr. A very impressive & resounding victory for Foxborough fans. Josh McDaniels was smart to decline the 49ers job & stay put too.

    • Like most of us I think we will be drafting primarily offense this year.  And I think RB could be taken early.  I remember last year we were really interested in Jacobs and he wound up going to the Raiders one pick before us.  Of course who knows if we would have taken him.  My point being that were looking last year.  This year might be the perfect time to get another back early to pair with Mack.  If he works out Ballard might pass on extending Mack and let him hit FA and get the comp pick.  Ballard has to plan on signing Ryan Kelly, Hooker, Leonard, Q and a few others that might be more important than giving a second contract to a RB who has had injury issues.  This could be the draft to hedge that position and secure his replacement now on a rookie contract.  That's a strategy Belicheck has used often.  I would think Ballard has to be at least thinking about it.  JMO. 
    • While the draft is paused, the New York football Jets will take a moment to toot their own horn and pat themselves on the back for such an amazing draft so far.   1/11  CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma 2/48  Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn 3/68  John Hightower, WR, Boise St 3/79  Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri 4/120 Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma   To quote Shelley, "Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
    • Respectfully, I think you need to get over this obsession with Brissett.  It dominates the majority of your comments in this forum.  There is so much more to this team than if Brissett is here or not. 
    • Trade Brissett for H. Hentges.
