It was actually nice on Sunday

to see two competent offenses run the ball with authority and throw the ball downfield. I had become so used to seeing three pass completions necessary to make a first down, that I really enjoyed the offense of the game. It really made the Giant offense of the last two years look even more incompetent.
Well the Eagles defense that played against the Giants showed up

Even the Giants were able to do this against the Eagles. Unfortunately the Patriots defense was even worse.
It's Tuesday

It took you two days to formulate this thought? It's over, the game ended, quit waxing poetic about the fucking Eagles winning the Super Bowl.
One punt

between both teams all game, that says neither Defense showed up to me. It should be a little more difficult than that, there weren't even many third and longs...pathetic.
I felt the opposite

watching 2 teams unable to stop each other, not even tip a pass or tackle well, was a really bad experience.
Or you could really

say it was putrid to see two such highly ranked defensive teams play without their defenses. Game resembled the Pro Bowl where whiffs are expected and hitting is looked down upon.
Everything about that game Fucking sucked

Fuck the Eagles
That game..

was Roger Goodell's wet dream to try and rope in casual fans to the sport.

Feature a lot of scoring and have the outcome be in question until the final play. Unfortunately, the quality wasn't good, but I don't think he cares about that.

You grow the game with scoring highlights. Usually, they ramp the score up by littering the field with flags on the defense. Sunday, the defense did it on their own by missing tackles and playing out of position.

That game was the most YAC the Pats had given up in Belicheck's career.

Yup, noticed a lot of casual or non-fans talking at work about what a great game. Best Super Bowl ever. Really sad but this is where the league has been heading for years.
easy to run your offense when theri is no defense.

not 1 offensive holding penalty was called on either team. what a crock.
Best part about Sunday

Ratings were down 8% from last year

If that's the future of the NFL

They might as well play flag football.

The may have been the worst football game ever played, unless you like 7 on 7 drills.

Excuse me while I go watch the 2 Bills again, to see some real football.
