Rams vs Patriots super bowl. Everything comes to a full circle. Patriots win and Tom Brady retires.

That's what happens when America's team isn't in the running anymore.

Brady was 7-0 against Rivers before today's game which made it surprising that so many experts actually picked the Chargers to win that game.

Eh, thats an overrated stat. Years ago the Chargers were the #1 seed in the AFC and had the Patriots beat in the playoffs when they picked off a 4th quarter pass but then the DB fumbled it while being tackled. That's the type of luck Rivers has had in his career. He also played one of those games with a torn ACL IIRC. And another with no Tomlinson.

Per usual it came down to great coaching with New England. They prepared with brand new defensive schemes the Chargers were not ready for. Wouldn't be shocked at all to see their defense confuse the fuck out of Mahomes next week, either.

The Rams also did incredible coaching and prep for this weeks game and had tells on the Dallas defense that were right more than 90% of the time. That's how you shred a good defensive line for almost 300 yards rushing and your QB drops back almost 30 times and only gets touched once. Incredible. Dallas coaching staff should be ashamed and embarrassed. Jerry should replace all of them but he needs a yes man at the helm so he'll extend Garrett most likely.

That's only because Emperor Jerry is still sitting on a stupid amount of wealth from the 90s. Cowboys' time has long since passed.

Nope, also Patriots time will be up once Tom Brady leaves. I'll admit Tom Brady is the best QB of all time imo.

Good lord, literally zero meaningful playoff success in the last like 23 years or something, and they’re STILL over a billion ahead of New England who gets a default home game every playoffs thanks to the AFC Least and have been in like 20 Super Bowls in the Belichik era, winning five right? 

They truly are America’s team.

Jerry Jones arrogance has cost the Cowboys a few super bowls with Romo imo. Romo, had to work with a mediocre defense and offensive line most of his career.
