    Speaking of postgames the CBS postgame was a disjointed shitshow. Commercials seemingly every 2 minutes in between MVP debates when the MVP had already been announced on NFLN at least. Both NFLN and ESPN did a much better job of keeping a decent flow and getting interviews. CBS seemed more interested in getting to the fat Brit who is supposed to be funny and his new show.

    I see Bill did another interview with Berman but I haven’t seen it.

    I thought Berman/Bill had a great segment.

    Fucking Gronkowski.  If it were not for his injuries, he’d be considered a top 5 player all time.  Then he makes the biggest offensive play of the game on a perfect throw from Brady.  One more year would be nice.

    My takeaway from Brady, after all these years, is that he doesn’t always make the perfect read, or put the ball in the exact right spot, or deal with pressure ideally.  His legacy should be that he competes with the absolute maximum competitive intensity on every single play.  And that’s not eye test shit. At some point there is so much evidence of a thing being true that you don’t have to evaluate it mathematically.

    He throws 4 picks in San Diego, and comes back to throw the perfectly placed long fade down the sideline to set up the win.  He completed a perfect bomb to Gronk on 4th and 10 in Denver after having the shit kicked out of him. He puts the ball in the exact precise window to Edelman in overtime in KC after two picks and against ATL after being down 28-3 in the Super Bowl.  He just never ever ever mailed in a play. Never. A+ talent, A++++ competitor.  This super bowl was not his most successful performance, but late in the 4th quarter, when they need it, he goes 4/4 for 67 yards and sets up the winning touchdown.

    He’s the greatest American professional athlete of all time.

    One of the dustiest cliches ever is “Great players aren’t great all the time, they’re just great when they have to be.” Cliches normally suck and are often false, but that one’s true. Brady fits it just as well as anyone. Hell, Elway used to make a living out of looking shitty early in games then killing you at the end.

    The sad part is the small amount of time you look human is what the media gloms on to because they need their takez and storylinez about cliffs and declining skills. Giving Wade Phillips too much credit takes the blame away from Brady looking less than superhuman at times, so we can’t have that.

    TEC’s description of his leg was something. And he said that was pretty routine.

    Somewhere, I have a clipping of a pic of Brady’s elbow from like 2003 where it was swollen to hell after a game.

    Ten for Tom is the slogan next year.

    “Three strokes in New Jersey” sounds like an amateur porn film.

    From Tanier:

    Slater after the game, on the coffin-corner punts: “Brian and I practice that a lot. That’s not a glamorous play. But in a game like this, when field position was so critical, it was nice to be able to make those plays and help swing the game.”

    How many other teams practice that a lot?

    Hightower is entering Bruschi territory.  Huge plays on huge stages, 3 rings.  He was blowing up guys everywhere last night.

    And playing thru pain.  Looked like he jammed his wrist fairly badly diving to recover Anderson’s fumble that just got out of bounds ahead of him.

    I don’t understand why it’s not ex-Pats bringing up the trophy. It was nice to see Namuth but it should be the winning teams players bringing it up.

    For a mili-second, that ball was sitting there like the last piece of pizza before Bertrand.  Tantalizingly close enough to reach for but not meant to be.

    Belichick was talking about Edelman this morning and mentioned how he played in that loss to the Ravens in the ’09 WC round, specifically how hard he played throughout.  What other teams do that, really watch their team and look for signs of progress in the worst defeats?  The other 31 do some kind of bury the tape ceremony.

    Saw that fake voiced creep Adnan Virk got fired by ESPN. What kind of terrible person must you be to get fired by that place?

    Reminded me of the Ahmad Bradshaw fumble at the Giants 8 in 46.  Thing sat on the turf for what seemed like an eternity.

    Great play by Gilmore there as well.  Anderson outweighs him by however much throws a stiff arm and Gilmore still punches the ball free.

    ESPN had a conference call about “Sunday Night Baseball” that the network believes Virk tipped off to Awful Announcing. Sources said the “premeditated nature” of the outreach alarmed ESPN.

    When the conference call took place, Virk was not on the whole time, and the specific information about the future schedule for baseball was actually not discussed.

    Virk followed up right after the call with Phil Orlins, the senior coordinating producer, asking specific questions about the direction of baseball at ESPN in regards to its scheduling. The questions matched what appeared later that day in the Awful Announcing article.

    What a dummy.  Lost a paying job so he could be a source for Awful Announcing.

    Not sure but seeing the ball come off Allen’s foot, and on the first one a low trajectory, I was saying this could be good…… :lol:

    Rumors abound that the Pats won’t get the opener next season. Wouldn’t want to feature your signature franchise on your 100th anniversary. That would be dumb.

    Let me guess, Bears and Packers because they have been around for 100 years?
