    Default The Super Bowl

    This is Super Bowl week and no thread? Is it just me or does there seem to be a decided lack of interest in this game? Even the media isn't hyping this year's game en masse. I understand there's a lot going on in the world but this is the least public interest I've seen in a Super Bowl in my lifetime.

    Personally, I'll probably sit this one out. I've watched every Super Bowl since watching the Steelers beat the Vikings in Super Bowl IX but that streak will likely end this year. And it's not just the Super Bowl. This also marks the first year I didn't watch a single playoff game as well.

    No real buzz, outside of ATL and New England, not one cares, and most hope Atlanta wins. That bandwagon started filling up in the first half of the NFC Championship.

    I will be cheering for the Patriots, but I am more interested in seeing all the protests during the day in Houston...could make things 'interesting'

    I am excited about the game. I always cheer for teams to win their first Super Bowl, and Atlanta is a fellow Southern city. I would cheer for anyone against the Patriots, but Atlanta makes it even easier.

    It should be a good game, and the Falcons should pull it out.

    I truly could care less. I haven't been at this level of disinterest since the Bills in the mid 90s by their 3rd SB.

    I can see the Patriots easily winning this. Belichick is a master of taking a star out of the game. I see Julio Jones having a down game. If the Atlanta backs don't step up and New England gets up early, I think Ryan starts making mistakes. Pats win 31-17

    I see Atlanta's defense making Brady very uncomfortable, and he starts making mistakes. Atlanta's offense is just too much, and the Falcons win 35 - 28.

    Liking the start so far. Falcons up 14-0.

    21-3 at halftime. Brady just isn't looking comfortable, and Atlanta's offense is making the big plays.

    28-20 now. Falcons should still win, but the pressure is on.

    Looks like our first OT Super Bowl. Amazing comeback by the Pats.

    Brady was just too good today. First OT Super Bowl and largest comeback ever.

    If the Falcons hadn't screwed up in field goal range, they likely win. Instead the Patriots pull it out.

    I think I'd rather see the Titans never make the Super Bowl again over seeing them give up a huge lead like ATL did tonight.

    The GOAT argument is officially dead. Anyone that still thinks there is a QB from any generation that was better than Brady is nuts. 5 SBs rings, 2 other SBs lost. The man is simply legendary and we will all remember this game for decades.

    The Edelman catch??? How? What? Incredible. You could just see the wheels coming off Atalnta's bus. I feel for them, I really do. The Patriots have been so good for so long. Never seen anything quite like it.

    6 different players for the Patriots had at least 4 catches and over 50 yards receiving. A running back (White) led the team in receiving with 110 yards and a TD (plus 2 more rushing TDs). Brady showed that it didn't matter who was running these routes, because he could hit the right person every time. That is such amazing QB play (and excellent coaching as well). Brady deserve GOAT honors after that performance.

    I still can't believe the Falcons lost that game despite a pick 6, a missed XP by the Pats, a 25 point 2nd half lead, and a first and ten at the Patriots 22 yard line with 4:40 left leading by 8. I feel really bad from Bruce's son Jake who had two huge holding calls in the 2nd half.

    If the Titans had done what the Falcons did, I honestly don't know how devastated I would be.
