I saw the ending of two football games yesterday -  both rushed and disorganized.

How hard is it for professionals to manage time under pressure?

That is why NE has been a Dynasty - and the others unable to reach that pinnacle I guess.

Here's one that will probably be discussed (maybe even argued about) for a long time!!!

Adds more fuel to the fire of video review for sure ;) ;) ;)

Plenty of finger pointing already:

They weren't robbed.

It was the proper application of the Calvin Johnson rule.

Anyone who says otherwise.....  well I guess they are just sore losers.

The real question is why didn't they kick a field goal to tie the game?

I always enjoyed his work because he knew sports, and had that voice that was just easy to listen to.

Perfect day for football yesterday.Either the B1G was going to have a perfect bowl season or Michigan was going to be the one to blow it for the conference.And they chocked it away in epic fashion. So glad they got to play in that 'better" bowl game so they could let everyone in the country see how pathetic they are. Plus my parlay with South Carolina and Notre Dame both straight up paid big $$$.Only thing better is now we get to hear Harbaugh excuses for 8 months.Great coach you have 8-5.Good thing you get to play Maryland and Rutgers every year lol

UCF is the real national champion - not sure why the other SEC teams are playing - remember the BCS computers always said losses were bad - and they each lost to Auburn which was beaten by an Undefeated team... 

UCF is the Champion this year in my book!

They do make a pretty solid case for that proclamation!

With Gronk back - I like NE chances...    it makes Philly have to play more cautious against the pass, and opens up the run.    That little edge the GOAT likes to take advantage of!

But I really want my square numbers to come in :)

There was no question that Gronk was not coming back,  No doctor in their right mind would prevent him from playing in the Super Bowl..

I just checked Zap2It and the NBC pre-game starts at 2pm...

I wonder if that is a SuperBowl record long pre-game show?
