  1. 2019 Playoffs

    I don't believe in karma (and even if it was real I think it would apply in life-and-death situations rather than sports), but it was pretty sweet to see all those Saints fans have to take their illegal whistles and go home.
  2. 2019 Playoffs

    I think the Patriots have some of their most productive practice sessions in hotel ballrooms. Belichick and his staff come up with so many new ideas and situations to explore that a simple practice field can't contain them.
  3. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    This video is about as good an explanation as any I have heard.
  4. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Everything I saw in the second half told me the Chiefs were finally going back to the Super Bowl. Brady and Edelman were making mistakes, KC was capitalizing, Belichick was actually reacting to the blunders with facial expressions and everything ... it really did feel like the end. I don't have to wonder anymore about what kind of team the Patriots would be sans Brady. They would be very good, don't get me wrong. But if he's not their quarterback, they do not win this game.
  5. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    This one looks familiar. Even their records are almost the same; New England went 11-5 in 2001 while the Rams were 14-2. Super Bowl XXXVI wasn't even the first game I rooted for the Patriots in. (That would be Super Bowl XXXI when they played the Packers and that awful Brett Favre. ) But it is one of the most memorable. I despised the Rams at that time just for winning in XXXIV, because I wanted the Titans to get that one so badly, and I waited two years for somebody to step up and defeat St. Louis on the biggest stage. The Patriots did it. It's still one of my favorite non-Viking football games and probably always will be. I don't hate the Rams anymore, but nor are they a team I really root for unless they're playing the Saints or the Bears or something. Meanwhile, the Patriots have spent the last 18 years lighting up the playoffs and demanding my respect. Their dynasty has come full circle, but as for the Rams ending it ... we'll just have to see about that.
  6. I'll say the same thing I did 17 years ago: go Pats.
  7. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    You'll have to wait, #15 ... #12 got here first. Absolutely ridiculous game. I give KC all the credit in the world for stepping up and making it as close as they did.
  8. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Ungodly. 3rd and 10 after 3rd and 10. Is Brady doing this on purpose?
  9. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Superb coverage.
  10. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    I don't even know what's happening in this game anymore. The entire second half has been like something out of a fever dream.
  11. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Not sure if catch. Too many close calls. Brain overloading.
  12. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Think they miss Malcolm Butler yet?
  13. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Good end to a nerve-wracking drive. The game could still go either way.
  14. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Yeah, I think we've pretty much figured out what's wrong with these new rules ...
