Great result!

Happy for the Eagles to finally win a Super Bowl.

I usually try to watch it live - but wasn't able to this year. 10 minutes of condensed highlights this morning made for quite a different viewing experience.

Can't wait for my 49ers to start next season. We're looking good and the script is already written - Brady's understudy leaves the Patriots to lead the 49ers into the Super Bowl to battle his old master. :D

Having fallen asleep during the 2nd quarter, I am now playing catch up watching the rest of the game. Quite entertaining, although I suspect the defences of both sides weren't at their best. Nice touchdown by Foles and glad the underdog won.

I'd say that was a masterclass in coaching from the Eagles coach.

Absolutely went for it. Left nothing behind, no regrets. 4th down, field goal? No thanks, I'm going to score one of the best Superbowl touchdowns ever thanks.

Really glad they won, a slap in the face for conservative coaching in any sport, that was balls out stuff.

All the free agency quarterback movement is kicking in now, Captain Kirk to The Vikings, Keenum to the Broncos, Tyrod to the Browns (???), Jets go for Bridgewater, and the Cardinals have the other free agent ex Viking.

Kirk is on $30million a year? Crazy.

Be nice to see the Browns be not so massively **** next year. I've gained a soft spot for them. Must be the similarity to West Ham :D

Looking for the Rams to build on last season. More of the same please Goff/Gurley.

Hahaha, I'm the same, man. I didn't think they were far from a few wins, and if they do the draft right, could improve a lot next season. I have started to like them a lot. However, I'm a Jets fan (since 84!), so I already support a stupid team that is similar to West Ham! :hush: Hahaha.

I'm a Browns fan as well and chose them entirely because they remind me of a better run West Ham

Jets? Jeez, you've been starved of success same as i have. How many SB wins? It's only 1 isn't it? Which is the same as the Rams.

Either that or you haven't been to Cleveland, a city whose river was once so polluted with industrial waste that it caught fire. Actually, the Browns/ West Ham comparison is probably a fairly apt one. If there was relegation from the NFL, they'd have been at the foot of the semi pro MCFL many years ago.

The Lions are a better match for West Ham.

These Browns ain't the original Browns, who are the Ravens.

The Art Modell-GSB comparison gets you over to the Inner Harbor and far away from Lake Erie.

Giants just traded Jason Pierre-Paul and their 4th rd pick to the Bucs for a 3rd and 4th rd picks. That's a big shake up for the Giants. New GM, new coaches & new systems.

The 4th rounders are six slots apart, so basically a wash. Makes it a 3rd rounder for a highly paid, often injured, 29 year old. Sentiment and success rarely mix in football.

quarterback of course, secondary (more safeties) and D line (more tackles).
not overly sure about the depth at these positions, but those are the ones with most players that should go first round or early second.


a lot of running backs too, but enough to better the latest crop? as someone said, if barkley ends up with kamara's numbers at the end of the season, no one will be disappointed.
