Super Bowl LII (52) Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!   :)   New England Patriots And Philadelphia Eagles meet again in their second Super Bowl in 13 years.  Patriots won the other meeting 24-21 in Super Bowl XXX!X in Jacksonville, FL back on January 2005.

 

Kickoff from US Bank Stadium is by 6:30PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

New Super Bowl commercials traditionally air during the break of the game in the first and second halfs.

 

Justin Timberlake is the primary performer in the Super Bowl LII halftime.

 

NO injuries, and GO NFL!!!!!

    Funny. For those of you living outside of the Philadelphia area, this SB is a no-brainer.

    For those of us Colts fans in the Philadelphia area, this is a nightmare scenario. Either NE wins (and Brady gets his SIXTH) or Philadelphia wins and we hear E-A-G-L-E-S all year...

      At least for us, there is a “silver lining” either way.

I'd rather hear E-A-G-L-E-S all year. Than to hear about Brady's 6th...  Besides I want to hear Rich Eisen and Boomer along with Collinsworth Rodney and all the other Brady ball lickers cry.

Agreed. I used to live in the Philly area.. If the Eagles win i'd be chanting E-A-G-L-E-S with them all offseason! haha.

 

After 18-1 my best bud and I would toss the football in the back yard, reenacting the helmet catch, and Plaxico's TD in the corner of the endzone haha. People must've thought we were the biggest giants fans.

Just got the game on.

 

I see the Eagles got the ball first, which means the Patriots pretty much won, since Brady can get the TD before halftime and then the one after halftime and knock the Eagles right out of it.

 

Time for Brady to blow down the field for the easy TD and for the Patriots to take control of this game.

Time for a TD pass to Gronk to convert this 3rd down.

Time for a punt after 3 plays and then Brady will blow down the field and put the Patriots on top for good.

And that extra point will come back to haunt the Eagles.

 

So now the Patriots will be winning after they get this easy TD.

    • Here's how I look at it. It's very rare for a team to win a SB with an average QB. Typically their QBRs are pretty high. I saw a graphic or tweet IIRC that only one team in the modern era has won the SB with a QBR under 50. And that was Manning in Denver. Talk about the perfect game manager (with declining skills) on a team with an elite defense. Their O was still decent/average (ranked 16th). Their D was #1.    JB's QBR now is like 47, and that's with one of the best OLs in the league. Our D (pts per game allowed) is like 16th. Even if our D gets back up to like 10, that's still not a SB winning combination. I also ask what is more likely, finding a QB that will be top 10ish (60 or higher QBR), or creating a #1 D to offset a sub 50 QBR. IMO, finding a 60ish QBR guy is probably the easier road.   I really love JB as a person. Awesome guy, hard worker, etc.. I'd love for him to improve and become that guy. I just see several very "fundamental" limitations to his game, that I'm not sure will improve all that much over the course of a season (or even two). My biggest fear is that we get stuck in a fog of mediocrity, trying to make things work for a few years. Purely my opinion, but if I don't see significant improvement by the last quarter of the season, I'm probably moving on. 
    • Did Campbell have injury issues at OSU?   Is it too early to say bye to Lewis lol
    • To the OP, to answer your question it is because he plays for Alabama. Most loved Fromm before last week  , he lost with a stacked team vs an unrated SC team. Fromm also ranks very low when throwing completions in the air down field 10 yards or more. Tua is no Andrew Luck, lets not fool ourselves.
    • This is right on point. If for some reason they can’t play we are going to have to go with a very vanilla and basic scheme. Won’t be able to confuse Watson either. Losing our two starting corners in this game would be bigger then not having our safeties against KC.  Especially with the Texans offense. They spread the ball around a lot. Having Desir out means Wilson plays on the outside which limits packages and looks. If Moore can’t go we have another rookie in Taylor in the slot. So Eberflus would keep it simple.
