    I actually think the eagles are going to take this one. Pats aren't as good as they used to be and have been skating on thin ice for a while now; they've had to rely on brady playing out of his mind to bail them out of games too many times recently. You can only go to that well so many times, no matter who represents the well.

    You've also got a question mark in gronk again which doesn't help them. Finally, both times NE lost, it was because of a team that was balanced on offense and excellent on defense, especially the front four. The giants boasted a great pass rush and were able to get pressure without blitzing. Consider this, Philly is basically a carbon copy of what NY was when they unseated Brady... except Philly actually does everything better than either of those Giant teams did. Their front 4 is better, and they get pressure outside and in with their 4 vice just outside like the Giants did. Their secondary is also better than NY's was. The X factor is foles. If he plays well like he has been I believe the eagles pull the upset. If NE can make foles look like a backup, they win. So in a strange prediction, I don't believe the game will be decided by Brady, but by Foles.

    Should be interesting.

    Not boycotting or anything like that, I just have better things to do with those 5 hours. Super Bowl super hype turned me off many years ago. I am not even interested in watching those over-priced commercials. I can always catch the better ones on YouTube, maybe.

    For the first time in 48 years, I don't plan to watch a Super Bowl. I can't figure out which team I want to lose more.

    I don't know who will win, but I do know they'll be rioting in Philly after it's over, win or lose.

    You have a short memory. You only have to go back to 2016 for SB 50 to see by far the worst game in decades. Peanut head gets a second SB ring despite not being physically able to throw farther than 10 yards, and throwing for 141 yards, 1 int to 0 TD. Meanwhile Cam gives up despite being down one score most of the game with the epitome of his loser attitude on full display when he double clutches and decides not to dive on a loose ball lying on the field right in front of him. That game was unwatchable.

    On the other hand, Every SB the Patriots have played in have been exciting to the end. This one could be the same.

    50 was terrible. I have a feeling this is going to be worse. Like Ravens-Giants bad.

    It's possible but I hope not. Philly looked pretty darn good against the Vikings and Brady and Belichick had a couple weeks to prepare, no weather to deal with, so doubt it's the super low scoring affair you predict. I expect something like Pats 27 Philly 21.

    Absolutely awful game by Colts and Boys. Unitas got knocked out in the first half with like 3 or 4 completions -- and 3 INTs if memory serves. Each team turned the ball over all day. Horrible game to watch!

    Foles' performance against the Vikings was as good as I've seen by a backup in the playoffs. If he comes close to it against the Pats, the Iggles have a very good chance. Their defense is awfully good.

    Hard to believe the Ham Sandwich is winning so easily. Not enough Gators playing...

    Frank Reich in the comeback against the Oilers begs to differ.

    I remember that game now that you mention it. The Oilers took a lot of flak over that choke job.
