They can't mess around here Stephanie.

Another Bob

Atlanta has just blown the game there.

Beasts, my son's betrothed is from Birmingham (Hoover) , so if they ever set a date, I may be coming your way.

deplorable new lurker

I beg to differ, AB. As an Atlanta resident for over 33 years and married to an Atlanta native, I am naturally pulling for Atlanta.

Beasts of England

Best catch EVAH!!

JULIAN EDELMAN!!!!! What a catch !!!!!

David Tyree

Stephanie

Pucker factor at 11.

James D

I'll deny I ever said this, but that might be even better than Tyree's catch.

Another Bob

As was I, deplorable nl, just calling it as I see it.

anonamom

Win it for your sick momma, Tommy!

ATL defense is tired. 33 offensive snaps going into 3rd qtr. Advantage NE.

We will see.

daddy

I'm enjoying this. Go Pats!

Time for 1 Hail Mary by Trump's good friend after the punt.

If it goes to overtime it's about who makes the first mistake.

Captain Hate

They should've sacked Ryan one more time during the coin flip.

the generalisticly deplorable rich

It's over. ATL defense is tired, the whole team is mid-choke.

One of the best games of football ever. Period. Comebacks rock, eh?!?!?!

Glad I didn't have a dog in this hunt who lost. Heartbreakingly close for Ryan and Company.

Young team. Young tired team. No pass rush in the fourth qrter.

PATS OLine stayed in it.

Congratulations PATS!!!! See you in Oakland next fall baby!!!

$5K the hard way baby!!!! ;)

Brady is the king now

BADGERS!!!! :)

Stephanie Deplorable Beeotch

Well, at least the kitchen in clean.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

You know, I really didn't care who won, except on Twitter a lot of the reporters were gloating that Trump's friend was losing, so sort of am glad he made a comeback.


Sorry, Georgia people, because I know it is heartbreaking.

daddy

Wow. That last quarter was amazing. Great finish by a Team that just didn't quit. Glad I missed the first 3 quarters. That was great to watch.

Sorry Atlanta fans. At least you lost to worthy opponents.

Matt Drudge was paying attention!

anonamom

No riots, please.

Can't wait to see Goddell give that trophy to Kraft though.

The schedenfruende continues---and never gets old, does it?
(yes, I am a horrible person.)

GREAT FOURTH QUARTER PATRIOTS!

NEVER. GIVE. UP!

sbw

Headline: Pats deflate Atlanta!

GUS

I never heard FOX mention that the game was not in overtime, had N.E. not missed an extra point. Little Joey Buck and Troy the Boy Aikman are awful.

Account Deleted

Agreed re Hyundai ad. 84Lumber was hokey dreamer bullshit.

What part of ILLEGAL do they NOT understand.

As a man of Mexican and Navajo ancestry, second gen on the Mexican side------> I am annoyed and offended because our family PAID to cross the border after the First Mexican Revolution with Granpa and Gramz and 7 kids all being naturalized by existing laws.

So sick of this "dreamer" bullshit. Earn it.

Michael  (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

What a comeback . . .

I had the Patriots winning 31-27, but I *never* thought they'd have to win it coming from 25 points down like that.

Best Super Bowl game Evah !

Way to go, Patriots.


Momto2

Well, that was a heartbreak for Atl. Congratulations to the Patriot fans! Very good game and from what I've read, good guys on both teams.

Jane

What was with the naming the MVP in the third quarter?

Beasts of England

Dont'a Hightower!

Jim Eagle

WINNING!

Get use to it.

Friends over and everyone estastic;

Loved it. Now that is what winning from behind really looks like.

Vlad Putin

ooops they caught an open mike moment there.

100K fine maybe.

Beasts of England

Serious booing of Goodell. Awesome!!

Marlene

Goodell is being booed! Ha!

Captain Hate

Sorry Atlanta fans. At least you lost to worthy opponents.

Yeah I'm sure that gives them a lot of comfort right now,

If Julio Jones murders Ryan or Shanahan tonight, it would be in his interest to get me on the jury.

Account Deleted

Goodell eating shit. A thing of beauty.

Hey Commish! "YOU'RE FIRED!"

daddy

Massive sustained boos for Goddell. The fans know. Ha!

jimmyk

I never heard FOX mention that the game was not in overtime, had N.E. not missed an extra point.

You think they would have done two 2-point conversions if they'd made that extra point? I don't think so.

That Terry Bradshaw is a handsome guy!

the generalisticly deplorable rich

most completions attempts and yards in a Super Bowl ...

Bradshaw is hilarious.

Account Deleted

The Trophy march was cool. Willie McGinnest is a class act. USC superstar.

Jane

The patriots were behind during regulation time for the entire game. I think that's probably the first game in history where that happenEd.

Captain Hate

Did Brady beat Kurt Warner's passing yardage record?

Threadkiller

Brady played by the rules and won one without controversy.

Is that why Goodell is being booed?

Another Bob

Anyone else catch Goodell shaking Brady's hand saying "That was awesome"?

Account Deleted

"If Julio Jones murders Ryan or Shanahan tonight, it would be in his interest to get me on the jury."

ATL surprised me not coming out in the 3rd to go for the jugular.

Had a feeling ATL secondary was having trouble with the slippery Edelman, Amendola and the 14 catch guy. Lot of holding during that second half.

Head Coach Quinn didn't seem to have game plan for protecting a lead.

As NE's momentum built the youth on the ATL side started to show. And then they got tired. NE style offense gases players quickly. It's easier to play a running team than to be rushing passes 14-20 times on a drive....it's Greco-Roman wrestling and then you get to jog downfield when the passes are caught. Brady had a streak of 10 in a row at one point. Yeetch. Them boys were gassed as the last drive showed in OT.

I miss it. :)

JimNorCal

Heh. No disrespect to Atlanta, but ....
This should be posted far and wide

Warner 414

Michael  (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Congratulations to the Falcons and their fans for a great season of their own . . .

They should be back to the Super Bowl again soon, maybe even next year.


Account Deleted

Brady made sure to find out by doing his job better than anyone could have imagined. In addition to the Super Bowl record comeback of 25 points, Brady surpassed Kurt Warner’s prior record of 414 pass yards and finished the game 43-of-62 passing for 466 yards with two touchdowns and an interception that the Falcons ran back for a pick-6.

Americans came together to compete in a Super Bowl.

Who cares what states they are from or who they voted for.

Make American *REAL* Again and COME TOGETHER!!!!

The great thing about the sustained booing of Goddell that turned into cheers the instant the trophy was handed off to the Pats, is that it shows people are sharp and paying attention, and that in rare instances like that when generally voiceless people have the opportunity to express their opinion, like in an Election, they take it. That was a wonderful 30 seconds.

"Has anyone ever blown a lead like that????"

Captain Hate

Head Coach Quinn didn't seem to have game plan for protect a lead

Shanahan's play calling was as bad late in the game as it was good in the first half. I hope he's terrible with the 49ers; worse than Chip Kelly, if possible.

Yep.

Congratulations to the Falcons and their fans on a great season.

Momto2

Even though I was pulling for Atl. Some of these are just too funny not to share!

Captain Hate

Condolences, Steph; if I were you I'd be off breaking things right now.

Time traveler confirmed.

He just added 2 points so people wouldn't get suspicious.

Nytol.

When's the last time, it was this close?

James White, while at Wisconsin, lived on the same dorm floor as my daughter for a year. Once they had a dorm room open house tour. He had a dinosaur blanket on his bed. Apparently he's gotten much tougher.

Stephanie Deplorable Beeotch

Meh. I'm really not much of an NFL fan. I just bought my first Falcon's gear ever last Wednesday... now I can use it for an expensive paint rag.

Braves gear I've got. GaTech gear I've got.

Y'all know how much of an 'ABG' (Anybody But Georgia) fan I am, so wearing ANY red and black is unnerving. I can now revert to normal. :)

jimmyk

IMO the only real bonehead play by the Falcons was Ryan's fumble. Seems to me with a 16-point lead at that stage of the game you protect the ball and take a sack. Then they could have punted instead of giving it to the Pats deep in their own territory.

I was also a little surprised there wasn't even a discussion about whether that fumble was a forward pass. It seemed like a close call.

Threadkiller

Atlanta had 540 points in the regular season and the Pats had 441. In the Post season Atlanta had 80 to the Pats 70.

Making a total of 620 to 511 prior to Superbowl. Atlanta added 28 points bringing them to 648 and the Pats added 34 bringing them to 545.

Atlanta Falcons clearly won the popular points while The Patriots cheated to an electoral style "victory."

(My numbers came from ESPN, I hope they are accurate)

Stephanie Deplorable Beeotch

Henceforth in US sports lexicon the words "choke" and "gag" will be replaced by saying: "YOU FALCONED" instead of "YOU CLEMSONED."

The torch is passed. Sigh.

That was so stolen and posted on FB, TK.

Local take on the SB loss.

mad jack

as a pats fan i have to admit im not sure that really happened. unbelievable. i was at a big game watching party and everyone was in shock that the pats came back from 25 down. brady is the GOAT!

Dave (in MA)

That wasn't half bad.

ISWYDT, Dave.

Ha, I wasn't even going for that, Stephanie.
