Hey Seahawks, You Got Served! Butler INT Seals Victory For Patriots

Patriots' Malcolm Butler says he had vision he would make big play

Sweet fancy moses. If you weren’t dead, revived, died again, and ascended to heaven with Katy Perry, and then came back to life in the last minute of that game…..i lost my train of thought, but what an ending!

It went from the Patriots losing another Super Bowl thanks to a one and a million circus catch to them sealing the victory thanks to a defensive play and a boneheaded call by the Seahawks.

Unreal. I’m speechless.

I’m without speech.

Brady finally gets his fourth Super Bowl, 3rd SB MVP, and this one feels GREAT!!

The early story was Chris Matthews, the undrafted WR on Seattle who had frickin’ ZERO catches all year and somehow burns the D for 4, over 100 yards and a TD.

But the story turned to another undrafted player, Malcom Butler, the rookie who was victim to one of the craziest and luckiest catches in Super Bowl history, to the guy who saved the day. Tom Brady needs to give that truck to him.

And Seahawks, U Mad Bro? What’s up with the fighting after the kneel down? Can’t take losing like a man?

A few notes from the game,

-This is the 10th team out of the last 11 winners to wear white (Green Bay the exception).

-Gostowski didn’t have a FG, which is funny considering all the other wins were by 3 pts, and 2 by Vinatieri at the final seconds.

-Madden correctly predicted a 28-24 Patriots win, down to the 10 point comeback sealed by a Julian Edelman TD.

-Rob Ninkovich’s birthday was today. Best present ever.

-What might get lost in this Super Bowl is the Lenny Kravitz appearance at the half time show. What happened? I was ready for “Are You Gonna Go My Way” and then instead he sings like 5 lines from a Katy Perry song and was gone. Missy Elliot was a surprise and had more time than him.

I also would LOVE to see the NBC crew’s reaction to the final minute. You have Dungy and Harbaugh, two guys how probably can’t stand Belichick, and Rodney Harrison, one of Bill’s favorite guys. Rodney had to have had a huge smile if he wasn’t outright cheering. He knows what it’s like to seal a Super Bowl with an INT.


Jimmy Garoppolo And the Curious Knee Brace


Late in Sundays blowout win over Chicago, Jimmy G got some snaps, most notably getting sacked by Lamarr Houston who then preceeded to celebrate sacking the backup by blowing out his knee.

Speaking of knees, I noticed Garoppolo wearing a knee brace on his left knee, much like Brady. Brady obviously had his knee injury back in 2008 that led to him donning the brace since his return. Garoppolo wasn’t wearing one in pre-season. On a closer look, he WAS wearing once against Kansas City. So something happened between pre season and the regular season that led to this.

I wonder if the knee brace is a precautionary measure, hoping to prevent any serious injuries before they happen.

Pre Season, no knee brace


Kansas City with Knee Brace


And Sunday vs the Bears


It looks like it’s just a new piece of equipment for him.



Patriots Lose Opener to Dolphins, 33-20.

Well, that wasn’t that fun. But guess what? I ain’t even mad.

The last time the Patriots lost the season opener, it was back in 2003 and they lost to the Bills 31-0.

They also won the Super bowl that year, soooo I’m just hoping this is causation and not just a correlation ( I hope I used those two terms right).

Seriously though, some people act as if 0-1 is a death sentence and the season is over. What have you guys learned over watching the Patriots (or any Boston team for that matter) over the past 13 or so years? Don’t give up so easily.

About the game, they played a good first half. Got some turnovers. Made some plays, but came out flat in the second half. Maybe Brady’s calf was hurting him? Who knows.

All I know is Tom Brady hate’s losing more than he likes winning so maybe him getting ticked off from the get will get him going for the rest of the year.

I am more mad I had Rogers on both of my fantasy teams and he did diddlysquat. 0-2. But like with the Patriots, I’m not worried.

Pack Your Bags, Boys, We’re Going to Denver


It’s come to this. What we were all expecting, and probably what we all want.

This game will have either be the highest of highs or the lowest of lows.

Nothing better than beating your arch rival in their own place. Also nothing worse than them beating you. The fact that the Patriots are directly responsible for all the the Manning Brothers Superbowl titles still irks me.

But, this game is as different as it is the same.

Or something like that. I don’t really know, I just know I’m ready for some football.

It’s Official: Torn ACL and MCL for Gronk


Tom Brady. Wes Welker. Rob Gronkowski.

Those are the best offensive Patriots players over the last few seasons. And they’ve all torn their ACL. Gronk also tore his MCL just to be different.
