Super Bowl LII (52) Game Thread

Recommended Posts

I’d just like to point out that “greatest” threw some really bad passes. 3 on the last drive. That likely cost them. Also he fumbled the football the drive before.

Ok so when is McDaniels officially hired as the coach here now ?

Wouldn't be surprised if it was tomorrow but that would be rough on McDaniels to lose the Superbowl and have to get on a flight right away so they may have to wait until Tuesday.

Nick Foles MVP. Good for him. He can never play another down and he is a legend. NFC East 3-0 vs Tom.

Nevermind, I misread that lol

I was waiting for the penalty flag at the end there.

 

"Pass interference. Defense. Hitting Gronk while attempting a catch. Ball is spotted at the spot of the foul."

i was too!  Granted on Jump balls like that they normally don't.  But I will say this, Brady still has a heck of an arm to lob it 50+ like that accurately

He needs to let it go......Past should have lost to Jacksonville.

 

Got to give the Eagles credit..

They won with their offense the last 2 weeks.

 

..and Nick Foles was very, very good

Nick Foles and the Eagles did what Seattle and Atlanta couldn't ... close this team out!

 

SO HAPPY!!

You knew the Eagles were destined for this SB win when both the Coleman TD and Ertz TDs did not go in favor of the Patriots, they at least get some of those 50-50 calls.

How can a Superbowl MVP not play another down. He kind of proved he can play at high level. 

Yep. He was going to retire. I think Philly re-signs him and keeps him as a backup. Did Hostetler get to play much after he won? I can’t remember.

Happened to Pagano.  Wasn't the Super Bowl, but they lost to the Pats and the next day, he was hired as head coach here

I was just telling my wife this. Getting MVP Is never a good thing if you’re in the playoffs

Watching the replay, it is now funny how Gronk shoved an eagle player to get to end zone. He is one strong dude

yeah and then he tries to flop to draw penalties, which works more than not.

haha love how Collinsworth throws in the 2 plays that went the Eagles way at the end to throw shade on it. As if the Pats have not had a million and two plays go their way in the last 20 years, this guy needs to be taken off the air

Gosh, I'm unreasonably happy. If only the Falcons hadn't collapsed or the Seahawks had ran the ball.. all of this GOAT talk wouldn't be.. 

Oh well 

THE PATRIOTS LOSE (or the eagles win..)

YAY!

Wait a minute, speaking of curse.

Well, technically he didn't get injured, so only partially a curse... or did he if you count the thumb? Hmm...

If we judge him by the 'Peyton Manning standard' we must conclude that his good numbers don't matter because he turned the ball over to lose the game

He threw for over 400 yards and 2 TDs  and the O scored 33on the best D in the NFL. This game was lost because the Pats D couldn't stop the Eagles at all.

It was 'Tom vs Accuracy'  and 'Tom vs. Ball Security"

    • Mmmhmm. I was deathly afraid of the Chargers that year. I was so relived to see the Pats. And my what a shock to say, but we had beaten them 2 times straight and I felt Peyton finally got the monkey off his back. Plus that was first time we were getting the Patriots at home in a while. 
    • Reader, Armistead, or Byron Jones might make sense.  Getting two of them could be a coup for our defense.  Them wanting to play here is the concern though. 
    • Nice discussions everyone. I for one am not going to get riled up one way or the other. After watching the UCLA and Oregon State tape for Gordon, I found several questionable throws that defenders dropped INTs on that I felt would have been a death sentence in the NFL but then he also threw 9 TDs and did very well vs zone coverage.  Some say he can be coached out of playing hero ball or throwing bad ones into traffic, I am leery about it. One can say the same about selective tape for Jordan Love as well. The guys in charge, I am sure they watch more than 1 game tape or just highlight reels, or just get enamored with 1 year numbers, I will be happy with whatever they decide. I like Gordon as well but I like Love a little more, for the record. Both will have to be coached out of certain tendencies, IMO.   Hey, the first pick in the 1998 draft threw 28 INTs, and thankfully Jameis Winston broke that with 30 INTs this year.   The 6th pick in the 2019 draft (Daniel Jones) was a turnover machine as well. So, even the highest rated QB, who likely will be going to an inferior team will feel the pressure and will make mistakes. Guys like Mahomes, they do not come around often, but you don't want to miss out on someone that has close to his upside either. No matter who we draft at QB, we anticipate him sitting for a year to work out his flaws. Even Mahomes had to sit out a year. The Chiefs had the luxury, we have the same as well, IMO.    All I do not care for is a WR at No.13 because that will not give us good bang for the draft position in a deep WR class, and I elaborated my case in another thread.
    • The reason I compare him to Brissett when talking about him is because the similarities with their passing games are striking and it's easy to illustrate a point when people would know exactly what I'm talking about with Hurts' game when I say he has trouble going through progressions and gets stuck on primary read and drops his eyes sometimes too soon and leaves the pocket to run. His weaknesses in the passing game mirror those of Brissett pretty closely and people would know what I mean because they've seen it for two seasons now with Brissett.    IMO he's not good enough of a passer/processor of the game to be a traditional pocket passer in the league and when he leaves the pocket he's doing it to run rather than to make plays with the pass. His athleticism is much better than Brissett's though and IMO this is the way he should be used - in a Lamar Jackson type of offense - where the offense is built around the QB's ability and threat to run the ball. The problem is - I don't think he's nearly as athletic and elusive as Lamar and he takes some brutal hits regularly on his runs. IMO whoever drafts him needs to build their whole offense around his running and hope to god he doesn't get injured.   I'm just not willing to make that bet. 
    • I see decent ability in this "lowlight" piece. He wasn't particulary accurate or special when throwing on the move was he?  Just going by this,  i didn't see enough here to push him up the draft board. Ability wise he is no Marcus Mariotta. Or is he?
