So you're mad that the niners understand the rules and exploited them? Start a petition and get the NFL fo change them. Regardless,  the packers looked like a high school team up against the 49ers. The same tactic was used against the pats...  Even if the 49ers didnt use that, the game was over at halftime.

Which is exactly the point. There was absolutely no need for the 49ers to be so cheap, but they did it anyway.

Yeah, it was definitely over at halftime just like when the Falcons were leading the Patriots 28-3. Oh, but that was late in the 3rd quarter. It was over at halftime when the Houston Oilers were playing the Bills in the playoffs and leading 28-3 and then went up 35-3 early in the 3rd. No need for the teams to keep playing as the game's already over.

Ok... I dont know what point you're attempting to make here. Should I say, the packers still have a chance? If you show more examples of comeback wins, maybe it will prove me wrong and the packers will end up winning? Sorry, but I dont get your point. I didnt say anything about not playing second half. All I said was, the game was over at the half..... and I was right. The packers got SMASHED.

My reply was meant for Rol who was saying that it was “cheap” for the 49ers to continue to try and score before the end of the half even though they were up 27-0.

SwitchUP had changed the context to make it solely about the instance of winding down the clock in the fourth quarter, so that's the only thing I called cheap.

The timeout before the end of the first half is a case of plain boneheadedness because the chances to score another time when only 11 seconds are left on the clock are close to zero. 11 seconds on the clock, then the punt is executed and more than 95% of the time it's a fair catch, a roll out or a return for less than 10 yards. Best case scenario is that there's time for one more play left on the clock, so a good return would have allowed for a hail mary attempt. That's the kind of odds only a desperate team would gamble on, but any half-decent coach would have taken the 27-0 halftime lead and allowed the 11 seconds to run out instead of taking a timeout.



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

No, I was only talking about the game being over at the half. Obviously, the game wasnt over, because theres time left. I said, it's over, as far as the way the packers were playing. I wasnt responding about the cheapness of running time off the clock. I think that's cheap as hell too, but it's in the rule book. I would almost bet the NFL will dump that rule. The first time I've ever seen that in a game was the titans-Patriots game. I've been watching NFL for 35 years, and only just saw it. Crazy rule, but nothing wrong in exploiting it.

So anyone know the jersey colors being worn at the Super Bowl? Who's playing away/who's playing home?

Jerseys likely won't officially be announced until the end of this week, but Kansas City is designated as the "home" team for this Super Bowl, so they will likely wear red and San Francisco would wear white.

Everyone with half a brain doesn't watch their games to begin with. That's why people on VGC stopped caring about the Super Bowl. Their game against the Rams netted one (1!) post while the Super Bowl was played.

https://www.thewrap.com/nfl-ratings-championship-sunday-face-plant-chiefs-niners/

"Fox’s late matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers suffered an even bigger slide when compared to the late game in 2019. The 49ers-Packers game averaged 43.56 million when factoring in Fox, Fox Deportes and all streaming platforms — coming in nearly 20% below the 54.2 million total viewers CBS enjoyed last year for its late game between the New England Patriots and the Chiefs. One thing to consider, though, is the Chiefs-Pats game was the most-watched AFC Championship Game in eight years."



Perhaps worthy of mention: Since the Ravens' Super Bowl run in 2012 (7 years), no team that played on wild card weekend has even reached the Super Bowl, the longest drought since realignment.

What are you trying to refute with your post? Your link does not contain any information regarding the intelligence of the viewers. What exactly did I respond to a few months ago anyway?

The amount of VGC posts is factual and it's guaranteed that this year's Super Bowl gets more attention on this website, because a single post isn't hard to outdo.

Welp, looks like we've got our jerseys set for Super Bowl 54.

As expected, the Chiefs have opted to wear red for the Super Bowl, meaning the 49ers will play in white. Incidentally, this is the first time an AFC team has worn their color jerseys in a Super Bowl since the Seahawks demolished the Broncos in SB 48 after the 2013 season. The two AFC teams to serve as "home teams" in that time, the 2015 Broncos and 2017 Patriots, both opted to wear white for superstitious reasons. Incidentally, teams wearing white have won 8 of the last 9 Super Bowls, with the 2017 Eagles being the lone exception.
