Haven't watched an NFL game in years and I've no affinity for either the Patriots or the Eagles but I'm really glad I decided to stay up for the Superbowl tonight, it's been excellent entertainment from a neutral standpoint. I'm definitely going to reacquaint myself with the game next season.

The rule is a mess. They made the second call correctly but it shouldn’t even have been an issue imo. Let’s see if Brady can pull a Brady now.

Guess tha Pats just can’t handle the NFC East.

Park your car in a garage tonight if you’re in Philly.

Foles was a cool customer. Eagles won it fair and square.

Is the ball caught? Then it should be a catch.


Well you might disagree. And you are definitely talking common sense. But the rule says otherwise.

Receiver did not fully control the ball and get both feet in bounds. It was a poor call by a bad referee.

The second one was much more ambiguous. Could have made an argument either way but I knew Steratore would call it good.

He played a great game for sure.

At least the Eagles have a QB controversy! : :twisted:

He also had time to play. Eagles O line the mvp imo.

Despite all the politics and off field controversy it’s been a fantastic season. Some brilliant games.

Harsh. Anthony knows his onions.

Foles has shown glimpses of being alright but no one, however much some might have wanted it, was predicting him as Superbowl MVP.

As a Cowboys fan it is worrying how good this Eagles team is. They are already the team to beat next year what with Pats losing both coordinators and Wentz to come back. Some debatable calls regarding what is a catch but pains me to say they have deserved it over the past year.

Only 7 months to wait now before the inaugural Thursday night football of the year Cowboys @ Philly :wink:

those teams looking for coaches who passed on Patricia and Schwartz are probably not having second thoughts this morning...

Great food. Great bars. Solid nightlife. Everything is fine until their local teams enter the discussion.
