    I can see the headline for the Super Bowl now: "Brady's Revenge"

    Great weekend of football!

    As KD mentioned...tough for GB and thier fans. That community will be in a coma for weeks. Glad GB lost though. Giants are showing once again that they are built for the playoffs. Effectively pressuring QB's with mainly a 4-man rush...thier D- is scary good. I'll be rooting for SF...but the G-men take this one.

    Pats v Ravens is a great match-up. As tough as the Ravens D- can be...I just don't see stopping this Pats offense right now. The TE tandom of Gronk and Hernandez is insane. Christ, at times they had Hernandez lined up effectively at tailback.

    Early gameday weather forecasts...
    SF - mid 50's with rain
    NE - mid 40's (niiiiiice) light rain

    Welp, Irsay wasn't bullshitting when he said he was changing shit. Thus far the team has fired:

    1. The Polians
    2. Caldwell
    3. John Teerlinck, defensive line coach
    4. Pete Metzelaars, offensive line coach
    5. Frank Reich, wide receivers coach
    6. Ray Rychleski, special teams coach

    *Interm DC Mike Murphy contemplating retirement
    *DB coach Alvin Williams likely to quit and join the Vikings
    *Jeff Saturday considering retirement

    Pretty soon the only people I'll recognize are the players.

    Laces out brutha...laces out!...hahaha!

    What a fookin heavyweight bout that was. Pats secondary actually made some plays at the end there. Wilfork had a game for the ages...maybe the most impressive individual playoff performance I've ever seen.

    This is like the worst season of football ever. Why of all fucking teams does it have to be the Patriots playing in the Super Bowl, the first Super Bowl ever hosted in Indianapolis? Why? Because the football gods enjoy taking massive smelly shits all over this city and its team, that's why.

    FUCK YOU FOOTBALL GODS, YA PRICKS

    Haha! Enjoy the festivities there. Actually, minus Manning and the attractive Colts being out of the picture this year...the Steelers, Saints and Packers all being bounced early. This has still been a great season and great playoffs!

    I have absolutely no desire to watch the superbowl this year.

    IIRC I actually haven't watched the full SB since the last Patriots/Giants SB. I don't plan on watching this one either. One shitty matchup after another, excluding Colts/Saints.

    It's actually perfect. Peyton will be watching his younger brother beat Brady & the Pats (again) in his (Peytons) stadium.

    Butthurt? In case you haven't checked the blogosphere, no one outside of New England and half of New York is thrilled about this matchup.

    I already predicted the Patriots would be in the Super Bowl, although I would have muched preferred a Ravens/Saints matchup or Ravens/49ers matchup.

    I also find your previous tirade about how "comparisons to the 2007 Giants are bullshit blahblahblah" even more amusing now than I did then. :p

    The AFC has only been represented once since the 00-01 by a quarterback other than Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, or Peyton Manning.

    I really can't complain about the super bowl lately. Since 05-06, I've had a dog in the race, and most of the time they won:

    05: Steelers (won)
    06: Colts (won)
    07: Giants (won)
    08: Steelers (won)
    09: Colts (lost)
    10: Steelers (lost)
    11: Giants (TBD, but unfortunately the recent pattern indicates a loss)

    I think no matter what happens going forward with Peyton, I'll always been thinking about what could have been with the Colts.

    ...and then all the Mannings will gather round the 50 and have a nice happy circle-jerk!;)

    Seriously, as much as I've pumped the Giants D- even if its not as good as the 07' D-...its thier offense that has me worried. Book of Eli is a much different and better QB than he was in 07' and his little trio of WR's...I don't know how the Pats secondary can cover them? The key will be the Pats own D- matching the intensity of the Giants D-.

    Pats matched and played this D-(kind of surprisingly) against the Ravens and even more so against Denver. If Wilfork can equal his amazing (Ravens) effort by occupying and applying pressure up the middle against Eli...then they'll have a chance. I'm thinking a close high scoring game...(weak secondary's).

    Everyone expected a shootout in 07. I'm thinking like 24-17 Pats.

    I kinda think everyone expected a Pats blowout back in 07'...and yet they were certainly put in thier place. However, I like your logical prediction and hope it comes to fruition.

    And while I've thrown out shots at some other QB's...let me remind that Brady kinda sucked against the Ravens last week. Though it was nice to see his D- bail his ass out for once. No way I see two bad performances in a row from the man...and he'll be prepared and driven to the max come SB.

    Does anyone think there is an advantage to the Pats in the fact that NY has had to go on the road in both thier playoff games (and to win be it very impressive) while the Pats have had homefield- the easier path so to speak. Also, I do think the Pats familiarity with all the hype, the Indy surroundings and the fasttrack of an indoor field can only help them and thier offense.

    That statistically horrible Patriots D bailed his ass out more than a few times this year.

    I do think Brady is going to play lights out in this rematch. I also think this season is signaling the beginning of his decline due to the inevitable march of time.
