Was this the worst Super Bowl ...ever?

Route 9 : 2/3/2019 10:27 pm
Someone is going to post it eventually so why not? I want to see sword fighting debates on this thread.

Would you rank it worst of all time? Bottom 5? 6?

Seahawks - Broncos froma few years ago. That game was over by half.
Gurley was a mystery  
bc4life : 2/3/2019 11:10 pm : link
this post season, after the Dallas game. Seemed like there was some issue with his knee, same one that he injured during his last year in college.

Rams biggest issue was they had no plan or the wrong plan for Edelman.
After they cut the ex Brown receiver

Patterson is really one of the few wrs who has any speed to stretch the filed - but he's not made much noise as a receiver.

Bellichek is man among boys. Coughlin seemed to have cracked his code though

this wasn't a great defense like Bears or Ravens, but a great defensive plan. or at the least, a very good one.

that was probably worst super bowl ever. no team ever embarrased themselves like the Broncos did that night
I wonder if that knee

is going to be a recurring issue for Gurley?

I won't argue with you too much on this because it is certainly possible that the Pats' defense was so fundamentally sound that the Rams looked inept.

But I just didn't see a lot of "ooh" and "ahh" plays by the defense. I did see fundamentally sound run defense. I'd be curious to see what the longest running play was because it felt like the Rams never broke a run more than 5 yards (other than the one that called back due to holding).

That's why I though the run defense was the MVP.

And I hear you about the pass rush, but I thought it was on and off. I thought it was more about Goff being overwhelmed by the game. I have no idea what the Rams were trying to do.

On a sidenote, I felt that the Pats didn't call a good game offensively. They ran the ball well on the first drive, went away from it for much of the game, and when they went back to it, it worked like a charm again. Too much Brady in this game and it almost cost them.

I predict Belichick will say this game was the hardest coached Super Bowl he's been a part of, and that both he and Mcvay respected eachother so much it made them conservative.
The defenses weren’t the reason the QBs were throwing shit passes.  
bradshaw44 : 2/3/2019 11:29 pm : link
Seemed like the balls were dunked in oil. Even Brady had trouble putting balls cleanly on short crosses. Goff couldn’t handle the big stage on top of slicks footballs.

bc4life : 2/3/2019 11:30 pm : link
I hear you. I just was pretty impressed by the fact that - the rollout was negated. and when he passed from the pocket, Goff kept getting hit.

I will have to rewatch it a couple of times.

Patriots did run the ball well early and at the end of the game when it counter, but that might have been due to Rams DL being gassed.

LOL... I don't even bother comment on halftime shows anymore. I'm too old.
I suspect you're right  
bc4life : 2/3/2019 11:34 pm : link
about Goff being rattled. No shame there. Biggest game of your life and you're playing against biggest defensive mind in history of the league.

I hated them long before this SB performance.

McNally's_Nuts : 2/4/2019 12:15 am : link
but I like some semblance of an offense as well and neither team had that until the Pats made a few completions in a row.

This game felt like week 5 game in 1997.
worst ever - meh  
RasputinPrime : 2/4/2019 12:22 am : link
but easily the most boring I can remember watching. It was a certainty that Goff was not going to beat the Patriots. We could all see that after the first drive. He just seemed totally out of his depth.
Nope  
jnoble : 2/4/2019 12:29 am : link
Unfortunately our very own Giants in SB35 was WAY worse than this game which was tight through most of 4 quarters. We just got our asses kicked pretty much from the start.
Yes  
Bramton1 : 2/4/2019 12:49 am : link
Think about the types of games you can have. A shootout involves two offenses playing great. Yes, you can also have really bad defense. But a bad offense isn't going to take enough advantage of a bad defense to make it a shootout.

A blowout, at least, involves one offense playing well.

A defensive domination involved at least one defense, or both, really standing out to stifle the opposing offense. You can point to a few select players on defensive who really had a great game. I don't have that tonight. Sure, Aaron Donald was able to make Brady a little uncomfortable back there, but the Rams still only managed one sack. Sure, Gilmore had a few nice pass deflections, and had the interception at the end, but that was more the QB putting up a duck.

Finally, the MVP. Edelman had a nice game. 10 catches, 141 yards. But on the Patriots' two scoring drives, Edelman had 3 catches for 41. Most of his performance was wasted.

The true MVP was Jared Goff tonight. Because is the Rams had a QB who at least played average, then the Rams are holding up the Lombardi trophy.

There were many worse. Just worst one in a long time.

Good game.

Don't forget possible P.I. in end zone could easily have put the ball down there for Rams, changing the outcome.
It was AWFUL!

It was not brilliant defense. Give me a break. Giants-Niners 1990, THAT was brilliant defense.
The Jints-Ravens game was the worst..,

In no order...

A. Because we lost to Trent Dilfer.
B. Because we lost to that arrogant ass Brian Billick.
C. Because we lost to that murdering thug Rat Lewis
D. Because that turncoat owner owner, Art Modell, got a SB
E. Because we lost to that murdering thug Rat Lewis

Dude's been a good poster here for years.

I find much more good discussion of out saying a player "walks badly". Now that is some hard-hitting shit!!
not if you like close games and good defense. the hitting was hard you  
plato : 2/4/2019 10:45 am : link
could hear the pads and they were getting smacked and the refs let the teams play for the most part. it was a very well officiated game.

i really liked seeing old fashioned bang em up football.
Obviously not great game but decent since it went into 4QTR  
Jimmy Googs : 2/4/2019 10:47 am : link
to be decided. The war in the trenches was pretty good and the QBs were clearly effected by some imposing players/getting hit.

If Cooks hangs onto that perfectly thrown ball and the game goes 10-10 with 4 minutes to go it rises up the rankings alot.

Fairly sure some of you wouldn't be happy even if you could lay out how you wanted the game to go...

One could argue  
RinR : 2/4/2019 10:49 am : link
that through 3 quarters 42 was as boring as this one.

Of course the 4th quarter of 42 goes down as one of the most exciting, if not the most exciting 4th quarter in SB history.
Will take last night's  
Metnut : 2/4/2019 11:10 am : link
game over the 90s NFC blowouts and it's not even close.

People make sarcastic comments whenever there's a 38-34 high profile game about how the NFL has changed and no one plays defense. These wern't exactly shitty offenses yesterday who exchanged futility. I like a defensive battle where any score could be game changing.

If you watch that play carefully, Gilmore, who is trailing, makes a great play by subtlety grabbing Cook’s left forearm. I think that did enough to spoil the catch...
Yes he did grab his arm...nice play by him  
Jimmy Googs : 2/4/2019 11:34 am : link
as was the other one knocked down in back of end zone. I thought Goff was late in getting a few throws out and this was one of them.

I will amend...not perfectly throw but good enough to be a TD if Cook gets his hands up.

Rams receivers left a few plays out there despite the great play by the Pats secondary...

My Top Four Worst...  
Carson53 : 2/4/2019 12:04 pm : link
I was thinking about this with my morning coffee.

1) Super Bowl LIII, you just saw it. What a snoozefest.

2)Super Bowl V, the infamous 'Blooper Bowl',
Cowboys/Colts, hey Jim O'Brien. 16-13 Colts.

3)Super Bowl VII, the most entertaining aspect of the game was the infamous pass by the little tiemaker,
Garo Yepremian. Redskins/Dolphins. 14-7 Fins.

4)Super Bowl IX, Steelers/Vikings, 16-7, Oh Tark!

If you have a 5th, add it to the list.

Let's keep this one for future "chess match is over, it's a watered down scoring league" threads.



Exactly. I don't know what people want.

What people want is a good combo of both. 51-45 where no one can make a stop is garbage, and 3-3 in the 4th is pretty much the same. Something like the NFC championship where you have good strategy, scoring, but key defensive stops as well.
At one point in the game, I thought it was going to be a great one.  
DonQuixote : 2/4/2019 1:12 pm : link
But then it just kind of stopped.

For me, it was that ramping up of expectations of a classic, defense low scoring, then maybe things would break out. But the second half was a complete dud.

This takes nothing away from the Pats who clamped it down and won the game.
