It really was a pretty crappy Superbowl. For the first time in a longtime, I didn't have any money on the game so I was just hoping for a good game. well, THAT didn't happen....unless you were rooting for Tampa Bay I guess.

I didn't realize how injured Mahomes was coming into this game. I knew the KC offensive line was a mess. But when you added Mahomes inability to run and scramble like he normally does on top of the line not being able to block anyone, Mahomes and KC really had no chance.

Andy Reid and the KC coach staff gets plenty of blame as well. Knowing their situation with Offensive line and QB, they didn't come in with a game plan to help themselves. When your line can't block, you gotta go to screens and draws to keep lineman off balance. Just can't let them come after the QB every play, like that. Of course that gets harder as you get further behind. Not only did they have no real game plan adjustment coming into the game, but they made no adjustments during the game.

All that said.....Tom Brady. Never been a big fan. But how does a 6th round draft choice, drafted #199 overall, play 22 seasons, play in 10 Superbowls, win 7, and still be playing like that at 43. Most élite QB's can't make it past late 30's. And from the looks of the last two games, Brady may have another 2-3 years. ???? And this from a guy that is about the most immobile QB I have ever seen. he isn't rolling out or anything. You know exactly where he will be.....5-6 yards behind the center.

And finally....super bowl commercials. A couple made me chuckle in the moment, but now a day later, I can't think of any that really stuck with me. I don't know, last couple years, seems like they are trying too hard to be funny.

The call is Heads (the Wizard is disappointed), and the coin flip winner is Heads!



Oy!
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

CBS didn't show the guy that ran on to the field in the 4th quarter, which was pretty funny....especially this broadcaster's, description, screaming, "Pull up your pants. take off the bra and be a man".

Yeah they fell apart and the 2Q and never pulled it together.

Would ask that you arrange settlement of my bet with Mike to be put towards the next spring fling.

Just sent US$30 to Wizard through Paypal for settlement. See you next year.

Since there's a new post in this thread anyway, it seems like a good place to drop my article about Brady:

Enjoy! Feel free to either comment here or the articles section!

Thank you!
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
