Damn, I'm so sick of seeing the Patriots in the SuperBowl dude. Like, is the AFC that incompetent or are the Patriots really that freaking good?

I'd hardly call the Chiefs' performance incompetent.

It was Dee Ford that cost them the game, really.

So I'm taking the very low road here in order to encourage more people to be Patriots' fans for the Super Bowl.

If you root for the Rams, you're rooting for the team that's owned by a guy that's literally driven a man to suicide before.

But what does that have to do with the men playing on the football field? Is that owner out on the field making pancake blocks? Lol. I mean I want the patriots to win but I can't tell if you're joking or not.

I'll take my own wins.

If the Patriots win the Super Bowl then at least I can say my team was the last team to beat the Super Bowl champs. (Quite convincingly I might add, as long as it's at home :P)

If the Patriots lose, then they lose.

If the Rams win, I can say my team lost to the super bowl champs in the playoffs. Takes a little bit of the sting out.

I'm having difficulty myself telling if this response is serious or not.

Owners are (for better or for worse, often worse) involved just as much with the team as much of the executive staff. Whether it's through hiring upper level staff like head coaches and GMs, deciding where the team should play, attempting to get the funding necessary to build a new stadium. The point isn't that an owner is out there actually playing on the field, but conversely, you don't have to be there out on the field in order to have a vested interest in a team winning.



I can't believe I actually made it to the final.



                            

Julian Edelman's career playoff numbers are already better then good enough to make him hall of fame worthy, 105 career receptions second all time behind Jerry Rice and 1271 receiving yards fourth all time but he only needs 45 more yards to take over the number two spot. He just needs to boost his regular season numbers a bit to be a eventual sure fire hall of fame candidate.



@Carl
@MTZehvor

Both of you submitted the exact same prediction. My playoff rules (which you said you are using) state that in that case both people will be made aware of that and have the option to change their prediction. This only holds true for the first occurence, so if it happens again, there won't be another notification and the person who holds the tie-breaker can be crowned as the winner right after the kickoff of the Super Bowl.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
