I just love saying this over and over and over again!

The New England Patriots are headed to their third straight Super Bowl, once more thanks to Tom Brady's brilliance.

Tom Brady? He was very average in that game. The celebration should be for the running game. Sony Michel had 20 carries in the first half alone. Tom Brady was not that great at throwing the ball until the Chief's changed their defense from a balance set to more 8 man fronts in order to stifle the run. Some people will look at the ridiculous roughing the passer call on Tom Brady. Granted the game should not have came that far because when the Patriots had the ball on 1st and 4 in the red zone, Burkhead should have dropped at the 1 yard line to milk the clock. The patriots were out coached most of the game. Tom Brady seemed tired and old in that game.

The Chiefs would have probably been dominated if they didn't shift to stop the running game which made Tom Brady look better than he was because of the stacked man and cover 2 zone coverage the defense was playing because they were scared of the run.

I'm not a big fan of the NFL overtime rules. It completely depends on the luck of the coin toss as opposed to the teams' abilities. College system more fair IMO. BTW, I'm just as happy to see NE as KC win. My team bowed out in the WC game.

@JJ Jetplane.

Analyse all you like.

TB12 is still G.O.A.T.

I have not seen the game yet. I was at my desk with game cast open. But I will watch after work.

Gronk and Edleman made clutch plays when needed.

AT THE END OF DAY...........SUPER BOWL. Bring on the Rams!

Haters gonna hate!

If we want to call out bad calls. Seems the Saints really got the one to pitch a fit about.

To an average observer maybe, but if an average QB was back there I guarantee Sony would not rush for that..

TB12 played great. He saw what the Chiefs were doing on defense and audibling into better plays. What makes Brady great is the stuff he does before the snap.

Most AFC teqms shrink against NE but in the Super Bowl, tney have some epic losses.

@frenchosa.

He really did have a good game TB12, I have a chance to see some highlights. Tom did very well. It was team win. Coach B. did fling his tablet however. I am not sure JJ Jetplane is seeing the same game here. Every sports Media is prasing Tom for a masterful game. Then going into the K.C locker room to talk to Mahomes. Just classy!

Tom Brady is 24-4 in his career when the temperature is below 30 degrees, he talks about his comfort playing in the cold since college, the fact is N.E. practice in sub zero temps all the time.

@Mocheake.

Your comment statred out great. I would have only changed this.

Most AFC teams shrink against NE but in the Super Bowl, they have some epic losses.(wins)*-)

The college system has its detractors too - many people don't like the idea that the offense automatically starts at the opponent's 25-yard line without earning it

The NFL overtime ends at only 1-team possession when it's a touchdown. Any other outcome, the 2nd team gets a possession too

For the record. My previous comments were not to take away from the greatness of Tom Brady. Is he great? Yes. Greatest? Otto Graham could also claim the same things but they do not want to recognize his 7 championships because it was before the merger. Tom Brady is without a doubt the greatest of my generation. He simply did not have his best game. That is why football is a team sport. The team did what they had to do and came away with the victory.

When it comes to the greatest of all time. I do not believe in things like that because too many things have changed over time. Workouts, suppliments, rules and more. So I like to do greatness by generation.

The Patriots’ owner is a Trump supporter so good to see them doing well. Go Patriots!
