to see two competent offenses run the ball with authority and throw the ball downfield. I had become so used to seeing three pass completions necessary to make a first down, that I really enjoyed the offense of the game. It really made the Giant offense of the last two years look even more incompetent.
Even the Giants were able to do this against the Eagles. Unfortunately the Patriots defense was even worse.
It took you two days to formulate this thought? It's over, the game ended, quit waxing poetic about the fucking Eagles winning the Super Bowl.
between both teams all game, that says neither Defense showed up to me. It should be a little more difficult than that, there weren't even many third and longs...pathetic.
watching 2 teams unable to stop each other, not even tip a pass or tackle well, was a really bad experience.
say it was putrid to see two such highly ranked defensive teams play without their defenses. Game resembled the Pro Bowl where whiffs are expected and hitting is looked down upon.
was Roger Goodell's wet dream to try and rope in casual fans to the sport.
Feature a lot of scoring and have the outcome be in question until the final play. Unfortunately, the quality wasn't good, but I don't think he cares about that.
You grow the game with scoring highlights. Usually, they ramp the score up by littering the field with flags on the defense. Sunday, the defense did it on their own by missing tackles and playing out of position.
That game was the most YAC the Pats had given up in Belicheck's career.

Yup, noticed a lot of casual or non-fans talking at work about what a great game. Best Super Bowl ever. Really sad but this is where the league has been heading for years.
not 1 offensive holding penalty was called on either team. what a crock.
Ratings were down 8% from last year
They might as well play flag football.
The may have been the worst football game ever played, unless you like 7 on 7 drills.
Excuse me while I go watch the 2 Bills again, to see some real football.
