I guess maybe it's difficult -- as a 40+ year old Patriots fan -- for me to relate, but I can't imagine missing a Super Bowl. I've watched every single one of them since I was a child. I'm a fan of the Patriots, yes, but I'm a fan of football itself, so the idea of missing this game is something I can't get my head around. 

 

This year, I will be in Hawaii with the family for the big game. Nice that it'll kick off at like 1:30 pm there instead of later in the day! And if they lose, I've got five days on Oahu to feel sorry for myself, lol... :lol:

 

Whether you end up watching or not, I hope you all enjoy your Sunday.

Rams don't belong there, should be Saints.  Patriots are cheaters.

Not watching the SB last year worked out well for me: Sure, I missed an epic FlEaKing game but flack: Pats lost.

 

So, same game plan this year: Play with the kiddo til he goes to bed. Break out the wine for wifey, then play with the wife. Stay in bed and watch How I met your Mother, play again, and check twitter at about 11pm to see how much shenangians I'll get to post on Reddit or ignore it completely

Ayyyyeee That's pretty sweet, and nice consolation for a loss if it turns out that way.. I lived in Alaska for the 2004 version of Pats vs Eagles. And having the Superbowl played at 2:30 was freaking weird but pretty nice. I'll be dead come Monday morning on the east coast. 

 

 

 

But to answer the original question, I'll be watching... It's like watching a train wreck.. it'll come down to the final few mins.. I was gonna say the Rams will probably score too quickly in the end. But I think Todd Gurley has given up multiple touchdowns this year just to churn clock :thmup:

 

Meh who am I kidding?!.. Its the Patriots! Gurley will try to kneel but fall forward into the endzone leaving the Patriots too much time to score. Julian Eldeman will be completely ungaurdable the final drive, catching the ball with 7 yards of separation between defenders. James White will catch a pass for -2 yards in the backfield and scurry past a slow * defender for a first. Gronk will go up one on one verse Jesus and catch the pass that's throw into the defenders back. And Sony will cap it off his a little 4 yard TD run right at Donald just because they can. The End.

 

But I'm still going to watch..because ya know. I'm insane. 

 

Go Rams.

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. 

 

They are anti-Romo b/c Romo recognizes that he is watching "greatness" which will never be replicated in our lifetimes on an NFL field.

Well you're jealous because if TB wore horseshoes on his helmet you would be posting every single day. You know I'm right. Either respect talent or whine and cry. Remember, TB's accomplishments will be talked about every year after we have all been put to rest. No one has to like it but to discredit it is comical and pathetic.

Your joking, right?

One thing you forgot. Brady's career will always have cheating or breaking the rules next to his name.

I can respect his talent but the Patriots as an organization has been fined and have had more draft picks taken away that any other team in the NFL.  That is a fact you can't argue with.

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

There's a TJ Hooker marathon on the oldies channel

Yeah, I doubt that will be mentioned when he glides in to the HoF. Odd, we don't hear your claim of cheating nearly as often as his remarkable achievements. Here's one thing you cannot deny, he just got caught and that is the difference. Anyone and everyone knows football players cheat on nearly every play of every game.

I have always wondered what it is like to be a Pats fan in that how do you all handle it when the Pats come up short in a playoff or upper Bowl? Here in Houston and other cities the local radio talk shows and medias + and moan and whine every year when their teams fail to meet expectations. How do the fans react when the Pats don't make it all the way? How can anyone criticize them with their record being what it is?

Of course I’ll be watching the SB. It’s the SB. A true football fan wouldn’t miss any SB. Do I expect Brady to win a 6th championship? Yes I do

It’s like any sport. A true college basketball fan wouldn’t miss the national championship game. A true college football fan wouldn’t miss the national championship game. A true NBA fan wouldn’t miss the Finals. You get my drift

Oh lighten up. Old time football fans have their opinions, since they have watched a lot of decades of the NFL, So learn from their experience. It's alright for us to be cynical, Times has changed over the years, but your perspective  is based on what you know as a fan.

Look, sometimes there are things going on in your life that take priority over the NFL. Because I would rather be doing something else like spending time with my great grand kids or spending the day with on old friend.

That does not make me any less a fan that you.

Now, do you get my drift?

I never remember not watching the Pats.  My father and I used to go in to Schaefer Stadium.  Pats never won much.  Still a great day.  When I started driving, the local sports media was a lot less cynical.  You would probably call them Fanboys.  Great seasons didn't always end in a championship...in fact, they never did back then.  I don't listen to sports radio much these days.   

 

I will go to my sister's house for the Big Game.  We do every year.  There will be twenty or more people there.  Maybe three of four will be watching the game.  More will flock to the television to watch the commercials.  I don't get that.

 

I don't live and die by any entertainment.  Not since 1986, anyway.  I'll watch the game, for the most part, eating, drinking, and socializing.  Unless the game is close, I'll head home at halftime.  Tomorrow, it's off to work.  Probably will not hear one word about the game, the ads, or the Patriots.

    • I’m basically in agreement here...    but either way most teams (all?) have their QB2 by early September.   So if we waive him with the intention of putting him on our PS,  another team wanting Eason would want to have three QBs on their 53 and not many want that.  Plus, I suspect we’d offer Eason a big bump in pay to incentivize him to stay with the Colts and not go elsewhere, just as we did with Kelly.    It’s way too early to know anything, I’m just saying there are things that can work to help us keep Eason around the roster deadline.  It’s not quite as black and white as some are making it out to be.  
    • You are correct. I read an article that said the Colts could "protect " four players . They went on to say that Eason was 100% sure to be designated as one of those. I assumed that this meant they didn't have to clear waivers. I just did find an article explaining it . As you say he can be signed by another team after he is waived. Furthermore , it appears that teams can sign these players on Mondays and Tuesdays. IMO , this new rule is pretty useless . It certainly does not provide what I inferred.
    • I agree, but I think this entire group just needs to stay healthy. If TY, Parris and Daurice Fountain are all healthy, Pascal keeps improving, and Pittman is as advertised, this is going to be a great group.
    • No one has forgotten about him but he needs some more work. Granted that may take time and guys like Reggie Wayne didn’t explode their first couple years in the league but we need him to step up big time this year
    • I really like Campbell, but he has to learn to run a route tree. Bubble le abd slip screens are fine,but he needs to be able to do more.
