  1. 1. Will you be watching the SB?

    • Yes, I will watch this SB
    • No, not interested and will watch something else.


Recommended Posts

No I won't put myself through another re-run of a Patriots SB but I am

starting up a GoFund Me account for "penalty flags for Brady" in case

the game isn't going in the Pats favor.

You should have a couple other choices.  

I will probably watch, but it won't be a big deal.   No party or anything.  

I don't like either team.   I'll be rooting for the Rams.  

It'll be like a game on any other Sunday that I have on while I'm doing some work around the house.

I dont know if I will or not,  but it's certainly the first year, pretty much since Peyton Manning came to Indy that I just don't whether or not I watch it.

I voted NO.

Plus Romo is doing the game. I won't be able to take him for 3 hours plus his brown nosing the pats, brady, and belichek.

I don't get the Romo hate. He's actually dead-on with most of his commentary. When you look at the alternatives/competition (Phil Simms, Troy Aikman, Dan Fouts, etc-etc) I don't think anyone does it better than Romo.

I'll watch it. Mainly since it's the last game of the season and it's all we got until September.

 

But I haven't actually watched an AFC Championship game in years. Last one I watched in full was the 2013 one in Denver. It's the same story every year in the AGCCG, so it's not worth watching.

Unfortunately,

I will be pulling for the Rams , even though my  cousin, that I despise. is a long  time Rams fan. 

It seems this has gone full circle with the Patriots, starting their run with a field goal victory, to start their dynasty. over Warner and the Rams, which seems like forever ago. Now it's  Brady at the end of his career, going back to what started it all for him …...Interesting !  No matter how I would  like to see Brady's reign end, Unfortunately, I can't deny that he has cemented his legacy as the  greatest QB in NFL history, as to what he has  accomplished. I am a great supporter of Johnny Unitas, and I still am as a field general, But their is no denying, what Brady has done as a QB , on a team, that seems to always over the last  2 decades, be competitive, is amazing! 

Moving on, this is a record that will be very hard to ever break.

Most likely be watching, but if something else interesting comes up it wouldn't bother me to do something else (which is normally not the case).

Absolutely. It’s the SB. A true football fan wouldn’t miss it

This poll is showing that a lot of true football fans are not watching

this mundane re-run. If this poll is an indication of how other

fan bases feel, then this SB will have another nose dive in the ratings.

Absolutely. Pretty amazing what the Patriots have done; I want to see what happens.

Voting is 50/50 right now. Why any avid Colt fan would sit and 

watch this horse dung is beyond me. Keep voting.

While many like myself selected "no", I suspect that if this poll is done after the SB, most will have said that they watched it. 

 

I plan not to watch it. I am not interested in watching the Pats in yet another Super Bowl. And I don't like the Rams and their owner. So, while I would love to see the Pats lose, I don't want to watch the Rams win. 

 

So, no SB for me this year.

I think it'll come down to the wire like all Pats SB's do, so I will watch. Also I don't care who wins. Rams are kinda just over there in the NFC, and the Pats have won so many times I'm desensitized to it. Should be a good one!

I voted 'NO'. I have watched every SB since the 1977 Season when Dallas beat Denver when I was 6 years old, never have missed one and I am now 47. I almost didn't watch last years SB, I actually did not watch the whole thing last year. Like last year I just do not like either team and the Pats being in it every year is getting super old. A Saints/Chiefs SB would've been awesome, Rams have very little chance to win this game as the Pats are not losing 2 SB's in a row.

There are only two Superbowls with the Patriots that I have watched. And both were against the Giants. That is it.

Agreed.  I can see why some potentially get put off by his enthusiasm being a bit over the top but I think its great.  He is a fan as much as anything else.  Even just putting that aside, his analysis is great, really takes you inside the game, especially from the QB perspective.

 

Its not just about the predicting plays, its the fact he tells you what the QB is thinking pre-snap, like you are in the game.  Great stuff and delighted he is calling the SB.

Pretty much the same for me.

But I will have the game on and I'll probably be doing something else and tuning in here and there.   Maybe more for the commercials.   The halftime show, once again, doesn't appeal to me at all.

Pretty much the same for me except I will have the sound tuned off. 

I don't know who the announcers are but I already know they will be gushing their love for the Patriots. 

I miss the days when the game was called without all the personal opinions (color commentating) thrown in.

I think that's the key -- he process the info he's seeing and then articulates it very well, and in a way that most of us can understand it, lol...

It's not hate for Romo for me. I fact I kinda like the guy. His analysis is indeed good. But his excitement, whether a act or real, is way over the top. Plus his enthusiasm and unnecessary praise for the cheaters is not desirable.

Romo doesn't bother me.   I think he's usually right on  on his analysis.  

 

I much prefer him over Collingsworth.

I’m not buying that anybody here has no interest in seeing the Pats lose.

 

I like Romo but I get some of the criticisms like how he juiuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust does thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssss this here this here this herrrrrrrrrrrrrre yeah. And when he calls plays then goes throw it, now throw it, now, now Brady. Why isn’t Brady throwing it? But besides that he’s great lol!

I like Romo's enthusiasm. He makes it easy for viewers to understand plays. I'm glad that he'll be analyzing the Superbowl. 

 

BTW, how is Collinsworth still broadcasting when hardly anyone likes him?

I turned on the sports radio channel today for the first time in a week

and they immediately started in on the Brady ball washing. 

 

I guess my boycott extends into the radio market for a couple more 

weeks until this mess blows over.

I'll have it on, but probably not watch it constantly. 

 

During halftime, I'll flip over to something more interesting, like old Columbo reruns.

Still thinking I'll pass....

 

But if I "cave" and watch, I'll definitely be pulling for our  home town boy.

 

Sean McVay grew up a few miles from us, and went to the local Catholic HS two miles down the road from us.

 

He's done an amazing job at his age coaching this team!  Go Rams!

I need to correct my post.  I don't want to be misquoted.

 

I meant to say Sean's father Tim grew up in my neighborhood and went to the Catholic HS here.  Although Sean was born here in Kettering, I believe they moved to Atlanta when he was young (maybe 6 or 7).

 

His grandfather Jim also coached here at University of Dayton.   So yes, there are ties to my city. 

 

Still not sure on watching the game,  but if I do, I will be cheering for the McVay family.

    • Kickers are always weird.  It is the most mentally draining position on any team.   When you get older, it takes longer to heal, physically, intellectually, and emotionally.  I also guarantee that he is more aware and disappointed about his performance than anybody else.  I hope, and believe, he will bounce back.                      
    • we have seen him for a full season though and he looks pretty similar to 2017.  Check the numbers if you dont believe that.   JB has a lot in common with Mariota, efficient game managers that can win with strong running game and defenses but most peopled dont believe they will win a ring.  im not even mad either i hope they do well this year but keep an eye on QBs in the draft or maybe FA
    • Titans have made the playoffs once in the last 10 years.  Chargers twice i nthe past 9.  Not really "regulars."  And whatever being "better" on paper means, it's the NFL and any team can win any given day, despite how a roster is composed.     I'm not saying they're bad, good or whatever, except that "on paper," they have the same record as us and while the Titans looked good against Cleveland last week, they were unimpressive this week.  Which Titans are the real Titans?  I don't know, hence, underwhelming, at least the version we saw yesterday.  The Chargers played us closely, but they missed a ton of opportunities yesterday.  I think they had a turnover, interception maybe, when they had two TDs called back because of penalties.    I'm not trying to naysay so much as be realistic about what Jacoby is doing.  He's serviceable.  Not a guy that's your first choice to lead your franchise.  I can't even say he's top 16.  If he's not cracked that list, our going to a super bowl while he's under center just does not seem very plausible.  Not this year anyway.  And if not ever with him, then we should start looking to replace him in next year's draft.  And thus far, unless he shows me something else, particularly against top tier competition, that's the direction we're headed.
    • Dropping a game or 2 to elite teams is inevitable.  This is not an elite team.  It has the building blocks but hasn't had multiple years to grow together like the Chiefs and Patriots.  It will take time, and in the meantime we do have to accept that there are better teams than the Colts right now.  that doesn't mean we can't put up a fight against better teams on paper.  Heck we just did.  Arguably twice.
    • I think the hardest pill to swallow is that we all thought this was the year Luck would win us a SB leading the helm.    Now, it's going to be a lot more difficult, but not impossible. However, if Joe Flacco can win a SB, I think Brissett will be just fine!  The Chargers were 12-4 last year. Tennessee almost made the playoffs last year and just demolished a good browns team. Saying they are underwhelming teams is inaccurate.
