    Didn't Atlanta just hold them to 15 pts? Didn't Philly beat two indoor teams to get to the SB? They are formidable but I would argue the Saints would be a tougher match up for the Pats.

    I’d agree with that. If the pats hold them under 20 it will be a fairly easy win. Vegas line is -5 still today with 48 points

    Nope. Already been over this. Simmons is a homer, so someone ELSE has to take the other side.

    Why is this so complicated? I know how broadcast or media production meetings work. They assign people different responsibilities by design and tell them what to say as part of their job, so it appears like there is no bias.

    For years and years I've stated 20 is the magic number in this era. Our D needs to focus on 20 points and under, and the offense needs to focus on 20 points or more.

    This is why our offenses failed miserably in SB 42 and SB 46.

    In general, BB's Ds have been at 19.8 points per game, or better for years and years, even in the lean years like in 2011 or 2012.

    The other tell is total points allowed. If I am not mistaken, 300 points or less, has ledthe Pats to SB appearances at the very least. I'd have to double check 2011, but I am pretty sure that is the case.

    That D was pitching shutouts in halves like vs Dallas and NYGs, or at Denver late into the season in 2011. They were not all that good, and they were young, lacking some depth, but boy did they battle.

    It'd be nice of the offense got off to a good start for once in a Super Bowl in this offensive era.

    Yes. This seems to be a sound theorem. On the fast start aspect, I’m going to be really happy if they can get anything at all pats n the first quarter

    The clearly need to start these big games faster. Sunday was not good in this capacity and I honestly have no idea why it happened.

    Nothing Jax was doing was confusing.

    I believe he was already on here as Rusty Griswold and then banned already.

    I don’t know, Rusty only knew everything about anything, and Chris knows everything about everything.

    I don’t know Kontra, he really exhibits an astonishing amount of self importance. He must be truly important.

    Sadly i dont think you do. He made this quote when he was working for bill simmons who loves the pats. The same bill simmons who held an emergency sunday night podcast with mike and his father after superbowl 51. Where they relived the pats comeback like 3 teenage boys who couldnt believe their favorite team just won the superbowl. I am not sure why you needed to list your credencials, no one asked for your resume. What i will say is mike lombardi is not being told to bash the pats by bill simmons.

    I wouldn't characterize Lombardi's comments as 'bashing the Pats'.

    Wow.

    That's what I said. Reading comprehension....Check it out, "sadly", sometime.

    Mike Lombardi "made his quote" just THIS WEEK about Philly being a disastrous match up for the Pats.

    It's a preposterous premise, but he's doing the equivalent of "hey, look at me, I am not friends with BB and I never worked for the Pats!" routine, but he's swinging too far in the other direction.

    Rodney has done it on NBC and Bruchis has done it on ESPN. Old tactic, but when it's too obvious, it's too obvious.

    I am not sure how listing your michael lombardi credentials, then making the logical leap that you and only you understand his motivation for making those particular statements can be considered a sound logical argument . I mean seriously man you have no idea why he made those statements and neither do i. So I prefer the simplest explanation, that he said them because its his opinion. But feel free to continue to pretend that you have some magical decoder ring that allows you to read peoples minds.

    Good memory, but it was the opposite way around, Rex Ryan was citing Sanchez's passer rating, 94.8, in that post-game press-conference.

    ESPN's QBR actually had it right in that Butt-fumble game; Sanchez had a 14.4 QBR.

    Mark Sanchez Game-by-Game Stats

    So, basically, both stats can be extremely misleading at times.

    And once again you make the claim of the Iggles “ huge advantage on defense” while ignoring the questions from people to demonstrate it.

    Chris Griswold clarified his bona fides earlier, he said hi to Lombardi once, that’s why he knows so much.

    Pay attention.
