    Don't forget Brady is 1 pass completion & pass incompletion from having 7 super bowl wins. The Falcons were demoralized in OT. They just went through the motions. NE had all the momentum.

    Since we don't have TV I was streaming the game. It would buffer at the worst times. 1 was that amazing 3 on 1 catch by NE. I got to stare at 4 prome bodies for a while trying to figure out who had the ball. Plus on OT, while the Pats were driving, someone mentioned an updated score. But I could already see how the game was going to play out.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    That's a poor path to go down. They were ONE play from losing to Seattle. One play from losing to the Rams and the Panthers and, for that matter, the Eagles.

    In fact, that is the true measure of this teams greatness; they've never been dominant in the mold of the 49'ers or Steelers in the 70's or the 1990's Cowboys. They win in the era of parity where ONE play or two is the difference time and time again.

    But to each their own. I know I'm in the minority and I'm okay with not getting it.

    One thing I wonder, though: what do Lady Gaga's friends call her? Do they call her Gaga or do they call her by her name? I always think about that with performers who have odd stage names.

    One need not be a fan of whomever to acknowledge the talent. GaGa is Madonna, with actual pipes. And she can play a piano. And put on a hell of a show. And I can't stand pretty much anything she's done.

    I loved watching the Falcons owner after he moved down to the field in the 3rd quarter in preparation of the victory celebration.. and watched as his team beat the odds and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory...

    CLASSIC!!

    That's not fair. They didn't give it away. The Pats took it.

    I mentioned the exact same thing in my earlier post. Priceless. Stay where owners belong - in their box, like winners like Kraft do. Let the team roam the sidelines.

    The Falcons did not choke, but they certainly blew it. I loved it. Fair does not matter in how teams win or lose. Things that went wrong or did not work earlier in the game for NE seemed to reverse in the final 20 minutes or so. To the winner goes the spoils, criticism or not.

She should stop trying to dance and just be the Queen and let the pros dance around her. I was very pleased that she didn't use her performance to make some half assed political statement and ruin everything, but today the kids are crowing that she did a "protest song" (This Land Is Your Land). They "think" this because a pack of durhards at some riot were chanting it. They are officially pathetic and desperate. But if it keeps Gaga from getting death threats, let 'em think what they want.
    HuffPo also declared her having made a "secret" LGBTQabc123 "statement" by singing her "Born This Way". Sure, ok. Whatever, if it was. It didn't interfere with her show and really made no difference at all, IMO.

    Let's define 'blow it'. To me, blowing it is missing a layup or letting the ball roll between your legs or dropping an easy catch. The Falcons never quit, never let up. We could argue they blew it on the one drive where they had a chip shot field goal that would have clinched it, not running on the 3rd and 1 but they got here by being aggressive. They did make heroic plays. I felt the Pats just made a few more of them. The Falcons didn't drop a game winning pass, they didn't miss a field goal, they didn't do something dumb. I felt they played their guts out and could have, yes, SHOULD have won but the Pats showed why we always play the games to the end. It was GREAT stuff. I felt like they didn't give it away. The Pat's took it.
