Yup. Great minds and all. I knew this would happen when I bought that Superbowl XXXVI Patriots jacket at the start of the year. Rams are good though; so many weapons. I hope we can win.


Don't know who wins the SB. The man in my dream in November didn't tell me who would win it just that it was Pats/Rams lol. I didn't believe it though.

I am still in awe the Saints lost even.


I bet tons of money on the Patriots/Rams coming out of their conferences soon after I bought that jacket. Just saw my account go up :o . I always believe my sports voodoo nonsense and it usually works out lol.

All I know is for the Celtics to make it this year that Pats/Rams had to happen, destiny. Looked like none of this would come true for a long time though.

Your creepy crap in sports is just like mine lol. The only thing is I think I felt Foles would nail the Saints and not the Rams. That the Rams would beat the Eagles in the title game instead. I was sort of stunned how the Saints went down.

Now as for this SB......going to be a real one.

Did they say the last OT AFC champ on the road was in the mid 80's with Denver/Cleveland? I think that was likely when Elway had "the drive".

Just want to stop by and gives congrats. I've gone from despising Brady and the Pats to admiring them over the last couple years. It's gotten to the point where I didn't think this kind of dominance was possible in the NFL. Coming close to 2 freaking decades now of the Pats just owning the AFC and the NFL.

Yeah I'm sure the Pats fans here aren't gonna wanna hear it but if the Chiefs won the toss, Mahomes 100% wins this game. But it is what it is for now, so really no point in worrying about it unfortunately

They looked like flat out garbage at times this year but Brady was never going to go down easy in the playoffs.

Pats D can give me nightmares, but Mahomes also was lights out vs. the Pats in two games this year. That kid is a real one.

Brady is the best athlete of all time?

I believe so.

Who else at 41 years old can do what he can still do. It's UNREAL.

Nah, people like Jordan, Serena, Federer, Phelps, Tendulkar, etc all have cases. But Brady is up there for sure. No one will ever repeat this in the NFL. He is the GOAT NFL player forever.

Listening to Romo was the best part of that for me. Guy was calling so many plays before they even happened. Hated him when he was playing, absolutely my favorite announcer though. The opposite of another former Cowboys QB who announces with Joe Buck...

Chiefs would have been better off with Tony Romo as their DC :lol: :lol: :lol:

Btw what happened with Josh Gordon? I saw something but can't remember exactly what it was about him and the Pats. They parted ways?
Good assessment:

True but Brady is famous around the world too due to being married to Gisele Bundchen and some think he is just famous in America. I mean the general board now is trying to compare Brady to F'ing Duncan in terms of equals.

Jesus the Boston hate never ends.

Brady the greatest US team sports athlete ever.

Belichick the greatest coach in any sport, anywhere.

Gronk now GOAT TE.

Edelman a monster, and might have the two GOAT kickers ever as well.

Sox and Pats doubters got life lessons this year.

And now they know.
