Nah. Even before this, Brady was the best. Tonight just solidified that.

I blame my father for this. He said at the end of the third quarter that the game was over and he said the Falcons were going to score 50 more points and shit. He was talking too much during the fucking game alienating my brother-in-law (who is a Patriots fan and is from Boston) as my mother wanted him to shut up and I ended up leaving because I couldn't stand him talking too much.

He's punishing your city for having to take on the greedy-ass Rams and Chargers.

That and Atlanta seemed to go into "burn the clock mode" after scoring 28 about Hal way through the 3rd. Hard to get the mojo back when a team does that. Odd since they didn't do that 2 weeks ago against Green Bay.

Four hours ago I believed P. Manning was the best QB ever. I have been proven wrong.

John Elway, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, and others didn’t have the advantage of being part of an over decade long class act organization that consistently fielded championship caliber talent around them on offense and defense. Plus Belichick has been to football coaching what Phil Jackson was to basketball coaching in the 90s and early 00s. Not to take away from Tom, his name definitely belongs in that discussion of best all time QB for sure. He is a beast. It’s just tough to call it with the organization being so dedicated to winning. You have to wonder how many rings would guys like Brett Favre or Jim Kelly have won if they had played in their prime on these same Patriots teams from 2000-2017?

Yeah, but take comfort in knowing that they still lost the most important one to the Giants in 08. Bet they’d trade two or three other super bowl wins to have kept that perfect season intact.

Okay, maybe a poor choice of words on my part. Not class act as in great ethics, but more so setting the bar for overall priority in being an organization devoted to winning. How they get to those wins could at times be questionable.

Tailgated at the Super Bowl yesterday. It was wonderful. Our power inverter started to crap out at half time, so we walked a little bit to see it on another screen. When Atlanta went up 28-3. I just walked back to the car. I was too emotional. I didn't want to be near anybody. So I watched it on my phone. Once it got to overtime, I knew New England was going to win. Once I saw the fireworks and White score the game winner, I opened the door and sprinted around the parking lot. I was rather drunk and too emotional. It was amazing though.

Russell Westbrook is making magic on the court.

Never was much of a Westbrook fan. He never struck me as much of a team catalyst. But individually he clearly has all the god given talent in the world and is bonkers on a statsheet. The numbers he is putting up have been unseen since Oscar Robertson and it would be criminal if he didn’t win regular season MVP.

Dr Channard

It’s a shame that James Harden is having such a career year plus has the Rockets poised well for the playoffs but he isn’t likely for MVP.

Also crazy to think just a few years ago Durant, Westbrook, and Harden were all playing together. Imagine if OKC could have kept that together.

And I’d love to see some upsets in the playoffs this year, like a Boston vs. Houston finals would be way more interesting than another Cleveland/GoldenState.

Terrible play call after Zeke runs for 8 on 1st down, they try to pass the ball and stop the clock, then Dak runs it in. 2 people you can NOT allow to have the ball with 1-2 minutes left Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Rodgers is so darn good that it wouldn't surprise me if the D lets Dak score just so they can leave him some time.

1 - Kaep wasn't blacklisted. His talent wasn't worth the distractions, real or perceived. (When Wentz got knocked out for the year, people were calling the Eagles organization racist for not bringing in Colin over Foles and now look who's holding a lead in the Super Bowl.) If a team thought Kaep could help them win, he would have played. It should also be noted that Colin opted out of his final year.
2 - The mid-tier NFL is full of parity which is why Buffalo, San Diego, Tennessee, and Baltimore were all competing to lose in the first round on the last day of the season.

I contend that the Bills should have signed Kaep, if for no other reason than to have a genuine QB battle vs Taylor during training camp and preseason games. And now Taylor is almost assuredly out, leaving the team with a QB who threw FIVE interceptions in his first HALF of an NFL game and threw an INT in the red zone instead of connecting to keep the Bills alive in the playoffs. I'd once again welcome Kaep to the roster. He'd be leaps and bounds better than anyone they have now.

World Cup action continues tomorrow! Perhaps due to the ease of streaming, I've picked this year to get into the World Cup (and perhaps soccer as a whole). Been loving it so far. I randomly picked Japan as the team I'm rooting for, so we'll see how that goes. They have next to no chance of winning it all, but miracles can happen. My next step after the Cup ends is to do some research and pick a club I can follow year-round.

I'll give Brady longevity, but his stats don't really seal his claim as the GOAT. (Also, Super Bowl appearances/victories are overrated in football. Way too many people on a roster to have that be the greatest measure.) Manning was a statistical monster that won his team a ton of games they had no business winning. He also lost his share in the playoffs but, had his defense not been manufactured out of rubber bands and old postcards, he wouldn't have had to make some of the decisions he did. While I may live in Indianapolis, I am no Colts fan. In fact, I hate the damn team.

Peyton Manning had a top five defense in terms of points in 2002, 2005, and 2007. That argument doesn't hold a candle. Manning also had a KILLER receiving group his entire career. Let's also not forget Peyton Manning melting down in the post season multiple times. SB 48, early post season losses to the Pats. His favorite receiver during one of those was Ty Law (goddamn shame he is not in the hall of fame.)

If i am down, in the fourth quarter in a Super Bowl, who do I want my QB to be? Brady. And it's not even close.

Weak schedule is a piss poor argument. The 2016 Patriots were clearly the best team in the NFL in 2016, but played a shit ton of of terrible teams. So does that diminish that in any way?

Brady has the stats, the game winning drives, was just as good pre snap as Peyton, and Brady does have the GOAT coach. I don't think bill hits GOAT status with out brady. I think it was a perfect storm with those two really. My favorite Brady stat is how well the team does when he throws the ball 50 plus times in a game. New England is 18-7 when Brady throws the ball 50 times in a game. Peyton Manning is 4-13. Also mind you that Brady shredded the Legion of Boom the following year after Peyon's record setting offense got shut down.

Those numbers are crazy. Don't get me wrong, Brady is great, but Billy still gets GOAT status. He went 11-5 with Matt-fucking-Cassel. I, as a Chiefs fan, know exactly what Matt Cassel is capable of and it's not 11-5.

Cassell also inherited the team that went 16-0 too. I don't think that does anything to tarnish Brady. You could give Mark Sanchez that team and he would take it to 11-5 probably. Bill is the GOAT coach as well. I think the combination of the two was a perfect storm really.

See, that's the thing about first round picks: You want them to get top talent. What good are they if you're trading away established talent to get them? The only argument is that, in the unlikely event that that red lump of used paper towels actually strikes gold, the incoming salaries will be far lower than those of the people that were traded away.

Agreed, they’re trading away young talent to... hopefully land young talent??? Before Carr broke his leg they were one of the hot up and coming teams and looked the part. Carr has regressed. Cooper has a bit too, but still has I think another year left on his rookie contract.

Maybe Davis is cheap and doesn’t wanna pay them, probably spends too much money on haircuts. But then again he gave Gruden $100 million to come back for some stupid reason.

Oh well, glad he’s not in the MNF booth anymore. Witten is pretty bad too, but not a nuisance like Gruden was.

if you’re a Raiders fan now would be a great time to jump ship. You have two good reasons with 1) dumping young talent and 2) moving to Vegas.

The fact that they're moving to Vegas in a couple years is probably part of the tanking too. By then, but Cooper and Macj will be a little bit older so if they draft young players now, they could, in theory, have more years left on them when they go to Vegas.

Hopefully one day they can experience the joys of a winner. They’ve been atrocious for what seems like ever.

Melvin Gordon donated $6.00, because GoFundMe wouldn't let him donate $6.24 in order to celebrate how many yards he racked up on Nebraska during Bo's years. Lmaooooo


624 yards. I couldn't add an extra $0.24. My thanks for brief record this year and '12 Championship game. Will miss you Bo!

He briefly held the NCAA record for rushing yards in a game against Nebraska with 408 yards in only three quarters...

as a Seahawks fan, i was crushed. i will admit that the cowboys outplayed the hawks. hawks seriously exceeded expectations this year though. i thought they would get 6 wins at the very most. the team is very young & has a bunch of salary cap space next season, so the future looks bright. glad you are happy, elvenism.

And that's cool when it works, but it wasn't working in THAT game. I'm not so sure Dallas would have won if Seattle had thrown the ball more.

Man, I'm sorry you were crushed. BUT, YOU guys had already won five or six playoff games in the time we'd only won two, and been to the superbowl.

Either way, both teams are currently inconsistent and youngish, but we're both on the come up, I think. I'm excited for the near future of the Cowboys, and, for you (not to mention Special Agent Dale Cooper,) I'm excited for the future of the Seahawks, too.

I know the Cowboys/Giants game didn't count, and, I was utterly baffled that Dak and Zeke were on the field.

But then I understood: MOMENTUM.

That game was fucking exciting.

And then, the cows went on to beat the Seahawks. Do you guys realize that was only our third playoff win in the past 24 YEARS?

So, I know I'm gonna get my heart broken by this team, per usual, but I can't help but be a little excited. What if we win the next game? Any given Sunday et al.

And, then, what if...

I think I'm done with the NFL, *maybe* barring the team I like. I used to watch the playoffs religiously despite my team never being in them, but today's game just really soured it for me. New Orleans literally had the game stolen from them by a blatant non-call (for those who didn't watch: refs blew a call that would have let the Saints kick a gimme with time expiring to win, and instead forced an overtime that the Rams won). It pisses me off that you can challenge *some* game changing plays (turnovers, scores, spot positioning), but you can't challenge other things that lead to a change of possession or loss of downs.

Oh, don't get me wrong, the Saints made plenty of bad moves that left me wondering what the hell they were thinking. But here's the thing: in cases like that, it changes the whole dynamic of the game. Maybe the other team comes back. Maybe it changes play calling all around. There are tons of maybes. Maybe the Saints open an early lead and get absolutely crushed by the Rams. Maybe.

But if the ref makes that pass interference call, the Saints kneel three times and kick an extremely short field goal as time runs out. 9,999 times out of 10,000, that kick goes through. And the Saints win. That non-call absolutely can be directly attributed to costing them the game.

So I don't think the Mavs can possibly make the playoffs now. J.J. has suffered a season ending injury.

And are any of you basketball junkies/mavs fans following this Dennis Smith Jr. drama?

He's like, not showing up for games. Carlisle said it must have something to do with his financial advisers, but "sources" have said that Smith Jr. is like, JEALOUS of rookie of the year hopeful Luka Doncic. IDK. Maybe it's more complicated than that: I mean, I'm SURE it is. But to me, it sure sounds like Smith is saying like "Cooooaaach, you said I was gonna be the star! I'm taking my ball and leaving."

Whatever the case, I don't see us climbing to 8th place in THIS shape.

Hey, I can be a Denver fan, too, since my brother and his family moved there. :p
At least I'll have someone to cheer for in the playoffs.

Agreed. It’s alright though. Dallas wouldn’t have had a chance in the playoffs anyways. I’m just enjoying watching Luka’s development. Hopefully they can make it work with DSJ. They tanked for him and I don’t think there’s a trade package that would make me happy to give him up.


edit: speaking of Luka, he just recorded his first triple double.

Doncic is a beast. I kinda wish the Suns had taken him first over Ayton (although I am enjoying seeing Ayton in our colors) because he would've been our primary playmaker and made life easier for Devin Booker.

Most def, except I disagree with you on ONE point. I think we could've climbed to 8th.

BUt, yeah, we're very much in a transitional phase. I mean, I sure didn't expect to see us make a deep playoff run this year, or next.

I hope to GOD Cool Hand Luka winds up being loyal to the Mavs like Dirk has been, as, as soon as his contract is up, he'll be getting offers left and right.

Also, I really, really hope we see things worked out with Smith Jr., although, even if we do for now, hasn't he already said he wanted to be traded?

Finally, I hope Jordan sticks around for at least a couple more years. I know he only signed a one year contract, but Cuban has deep pockets, and Jordan MAY appreciate his own coach-like role. I hope he does.

It SUCKS about Smith Jr though, as I saw him and LD as the future of the team,you know? But it's ok: I think he's replaceable.

Sorry this is turning into an essay, but while I'm talking to a fellow Mavericks fan, I've gotta ask: have you seen people in Boston and Indiana cheering for Dirk? And I'm talking about Celtics and Blazers fans. It's a trip.

My dude, we’re only about 1/4 of the way into the season. If we’re going by PER Giannis is slightly ahead of him- and Mikwaukee without Giannis are a borderline east 8th seed. Can’t discount what kind of scoring Harden is pulling out of his ass either (although like many others, I can’t stand his game). LeBron and LeBrow are probably gonna cancel each other out, even if I think James is still the best player in the NBA it’s tough when votes get split.

Mavs lost twice to the Knicks lol. That said if he keeps it up he’s definitely gonna be in the conversation at seasons end. He’s lived up to the hype- and probably exceeded any type of year two expectations right now. It’s a long season and anything can happen- good and bad.
