Best SB ever, bar none. Down 25 in the 2nd half and win?!? What an amazing game!

Even though they didn't finish their drives, the Falcons kept playing aggressively with the big lead, but gotta think they'll be kicking themselves over the sack fumble (3rd and 1), and later the sack and hold which took them out of FG range. A FG there basically ices the game, barring a score and onside kick. Run, run, kick... ball game (2 score lead and bleed the clock). Had that happened, it'd be Julio Jones' catch that everyone remembered. Not to be, but a great season for the Falcons.

Regardless, Brady is an absolute winner, and that whole Pat team stepped up huge in the 2nd half (White, Edelman, Amendola, and the D). Congrats to the Pats and their fans on another one.

Once again, another game decided by the officials. Come on guys, I realize that you are NE fans, but I know you watched the same game I did.

4th Quarter, 3:50 seconds left in the game. How do the officials see a holding penalty that happens away from the play, but miss a face mask (tell me you didn't see that) that happens right there in front of them?

Shouldn't it have been offsetting penalties, replay of down? Instead, the holding penalty set them back 10 yards and took them out of FG range.

NFL is rigged. You can't sit there and say it's not in your make believe fantasy world, but it really is. Another Pats SB is good for the NFL and it was going to happen no matter what.

And your evidence is one missed call? And you infer from that that the NFL instructed the referees to make sure NE won? That's pretty weak David. Do you think 31 unanswered points had anything to do with it, or were the referees responsible for that too?

By the way on that non-call how did Ryan lose his helmet? Sanu had him by the face mask too.

Fine, they both had each other by the face mask. Why wasn't it called? Still should have been offsetting penalties, replay of down.

I'll give you another example. On the pick 6 drive, the Pats down 14-0, there were 3 defensive holding calls on Atlanta all on 3rd down to extend the drive. 3 defensive holding calls, all on 3rd down?

You may have had the game on, but it's obvious you weren't watching it.

So as you see it or saw it, the NFL is nothing more than Hulk Hogan and Andre "T" Giant ?

Default Side Note

On a side note for N E fans or really anyone old enough to remember, what`s more improbable these Pats coming back from 25 in last night`s Super Bowl or the 1986 Mets comeback game 6 against the Sox ? As a refresher, in 86 the Sox, trying to erase many decades of misery, were up 3 games to 2 and 5 to 3 I believe with 2 out 2 strikes and NOBODY on in the bottom of the 9`th. The entire region was literally the real "Walking Dead" the following mourning.

Thanks for the reminder. I believe several times during that inning the Mets were down to their last strike.

Not only down to their last strike, the center field scoreboard at Shea had the message Congratulations Boston Red Sox, 1986 World Champions, before Carter started that rally.

The ultimate example of Yogi's aphorism.
