  1. Yeah but what if it's tied after that 5th quarter?
  2. That's the best we can do here?
  3. Didn't have to read anything past the bolded because the bolded itself isn't true in the slightest.
  4. After last night, a narrative that seems to be creeping up is that the NFL OT rules are now somehow bad because Patrick Mahomes, the favorite to win NFL MVP, didn't get to see the field in OT because Tom Brady drove the Patriots down the field and ended the game on a touchdown. Exhibit A: Exhibit B I actually think last night perfectly summarized why the OT rules are pretty solid as-is. What we saw from the Patriots offense in overtime was nothing short of genius in how they carved through man and zone coverage. The Patriots converted THREE separate 3rd-and-10 plays (twice to Edelman over the middle, and once to Gronk on a slant) and then ran the ball 3 times to score. If your offense is able to execute like that, there's nothing "boring" or "not fun" about why that team shouldn't win the game in overtime. The Chiefs defense didn't get robbed. There were not controversial calls or catches in OT, they just straight up got obliterated because they failed to adjust or have any sort of idea how to defend 2 guys (Edelman and Gronk), and instead just tried to man up across the board with zero double teams and the Patriots carved them up as a result. Discuss.
  5. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    I completely 100% understand Rams fans not being mad at the call, because I would act the exact same way in your position - but some are going to extreme lengths ("there were bad calls earlier so it evens out!", "The Saints had a chance to win after this so it didn't matter", etc.) to brush off a call that would've ended the game as "just another missed call, oh well!", when it's not. I agree it's not the worst call in NFL history. Yeah you can see by his reaction (and also his quote afterwards) he was beat and trying to save the touchdown. It was an atrocious call - one that would've ended the game. It absolutely, IMO, stole the game from the Saints.
  6. Can Pats challenge Bills?

    I don't see them repeating next year, but then again it's the Patriots so who knows. Maybe the AFCE will field some competitive teams next year.

    Now this I can get behind. I loathe everything about Robert Kraft
  8. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    Blaming the referees for missing a blatant call that would've ended the game? You can't be serious right now.... There were probably a myriad of bad calls throughout the game, just like there is throughout an entire season. However, there was only one bad call (and that's putting it mildly) that, if called correctly, would've ended the game and your team would've lost. Continuing to ignore that aspect of this is just sad.
  9. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Yeah, like I understand Brady's gonna pick apart zone coverage, but if you're going to run man to man every single play, you've gotta disguise and double. They did neither, and Brady marched down the field with ease the whole drive. The only time the Chiefs got stops is when the WR's dropped the ball, or when Patriots tried to get too cute (flea flicker).
  10. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    I like this option and the meteor option. Meh, I dislike them for a myriad of reasons, but cheating is right at the top. But there is truth that people are just tired of seeing them over and over again every year.
  11. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    They didn't even have time. They didn't disguise their coverages and their DB's got beat off the ball every single time with those 2 man under looks. Pass rush stood no chance.
  12. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    It's a conundrum. Do you root for the team who literally is only in the Superbowl because of one of the worst calls anyone's ever seen, or do you root for the team whose dynasty is built on multiple cheating scandals?
  13. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    How original.
  14. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Chiefs had the Patriots in 3rd down and 10(?) like 4 times and got beat every single time. Patriots earned everything on that last drive.
