On Sunday, Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots ripped the hearts out of every football fan that woke up Monday feeling like it was a normal day. I currently type with six rings that glow with the light of a thousand suns. Where do we begin.
Gotta start with this. Rob Gronk is back next year and I don’t know if the Patriots have ever had this type of team camaraderie. Everyone is so all in on building Brady’s legacy that nobody can retire until he does. How is Gronk at 29 gonna leave Brady out to dry when he’s 41? That’s right, he’s not going to. With that being said, it wasn’t the greatest offensive performance for either team which made the game pretty slow for anyone watching at home. Every play in that stadium was edge of your seat action and watching Bill’s defense fly around and shut down Sean McVay’s offense was all I could have asked for. The place erupted, or at least felt as though it did when Kyle Van Noy got to Goff in the second quarter on third down.
Also, love this flipper against Reynolds in the first. Felt like we dominated the game physically and that was something the defense really stepped up at the end of the season. We started running the rock and playing hard nosed defense and we kept McVay of the end zone.
That’s why all this MVP talk is bologna. If anyone on the defensive side of the ball deserved the MVP it would be Belichick. The guy pitched a perfect game and even though Goff should of hit Cooks for a touchdown, he didn’t. Goff looked like he was crapping himself before the Saints game so I can imagine there were a few times he looked like a deer in headlights Sunday night. I couldn’t quite see him on the sideline Sunday from my seats but on the field he didn’t look great.
The real MVP or MVP’s from this game was the Patriots offensive line. I know some people that specifically bet on the Rams because they had Aaron Donald. Those people, first, are idiots, and second don’t respect the greatness that is Dante Scarnecchia, the Patriots offensive line coach. Not to mention Trent Brown makes Aaron Donald look like a pee wee football player.
I understand this game will be talked about as the worst Super Bowl ever. Which is why I’ll always remember it as the best Super Bowl ever. We got to 6 and now everyone should know Brady won’t sleep till we have 7. It’s going to be a fantastic offseason even though it is devastating football is now over. To those who thought we weren’t going to win the Super Bowl, I pity you. Not because you were wrong, but because you had to watch your worst nightmare slowly come true. Another Patriots Super Bowl and another offseason of listening to Patriots fans. I will carry these six rings for a long time, jingling around in my pocket or hanging from a necklace. Congratulations to all, and to the NFL, goodnight.
