Thank you for your advice mornelithe.  Hope he likes it.  Those hoodies are fine, but I bought him a New England Patriots hoody for his birthday last year. Wanted something different.

Anytime :D  I'm sure he will.  This was a tremendous victory, on some many levels.  Any Pats fan would enjoy a bit of memorabilia marking the occassion.


Just an update.  He liked it and hung it next to his Red Sox and Bruins Championship memorabilia.

Holy shit, wtf...any Seahawks fans or specifically folks in the know about Lynch, able to comment on this?

I was not aware in any way shape or form that he was having back issues (again, could be the lack of Pats/Seahawks showdowns). Hopefully (seriously) it's untrue, dude's a beast, and so young...


I am sure it is true.  He has been rested every Wednesday practice for like the last two for back issues.  I don't know if it as severe as people are making it out right now, but he has had back issues for a while.  As to whether or not he will retire because of it... Who knows!  Nobody knows what lynch is thinking besides lynch himself...

I hope not, I really really like players who fuck with the media.  I really do.  That's partially why I love Belicheck so much, because it's one of his pleasures to toy with the media.  And it's hilarious to see them go apeshit over it.  Plus, Lynch is a damn good player, so it'd be nice to see him in the game for longer.  That having been said, if it's a choice between being mobile in the future and playing for another season...yeah, I'd say retire, but, I hope it's not true.

He's almost 30, which is like being 90 in running back years.

He is only 28, he hasnt quite hit the decline period,  he still has another prime year or two left if he keeps playing...

Yeah it's honestly just that I like to see players play as long as they want to, and not necessarily be sidetracked unexpectedly by injury.  It goes with all players, and not just players on the team I like.  The rare specimens are really a treat to watch.



i'm a bit late but well done old brady & new england,glad he won another for the stats,good super bowl to watch

good job Amp too for winning ours too

For most running backs he is very solidly in the decline period. He just appears to be an exception to that rule. Still, the clock is indisputably ticking, and reports of back problems aren't instilling confidence.
