Hard pass.  First time ever I have zero interest.

Hey Patriots? Sometimes it's okay to, like, NOT be in a SB. 

Taking the Rams in what I hope is going to be a competitive and fun game.

Actually pulling for the Patriots, because the Rams don't deserve to be playing in it.

It's not the Rams fault, Brian.  They didn't miss the call.  Hell, even the Rams defender said it was PI.  That said?  The Saints had the ball with less than two minutes on the clock and the Rams with just 2 timeouts.  They could have (should have) run the ball three times and stopped the clock with :05 seconds left to then kick a field goal.  They have the best RB combo in the NFL.  Instead, Peyton got cute and threw the ball on first and third down.  By the time the Rams got the ball back, the Saints had run about :11 seconds off the clock.  

Yes, the non-call was awful.  Peyton's playcalling in situational football was worse.  And you can't blame the Rams for any of it.  

As to the Super Bowl itself?  I think/hope it'll be a blast and, yes, I'll be watching.  As much as it pains me, I just feel like it's the Pats year.  This is hands down one of the least talented Super Bowl bound teams New England has fielded and yet here they are.  They clicked at just the right moment, a testament not only to coaching but Brady himself.  I'll be rooting for the Rams (Los Angeles, 'natch) but am picking the Pats.

I think it's the Pats year too. The only caveat I'd give is if the Rams 3 defensive lineman can play out of their minds - or to the level they should always play - they could be the kind of defense that drives Brady crazy.

Still, though, I think the Patriots win a close one, like they almost always do.

Well said on the non-call Matt! also the refs did give the saints a ticky-tak PI in overtime for a 20 yard gain. (just like always when they mess something up) It's not the rams fault that Brees threw a duck right at the Rams guy that fell down.  (now if it was a falcon DB it would have bounced off his pads and into the hand of saints) 

As a falcons fan it was fun to hear the saints meltdown. Calling for the ref not to make it to the airport and show up at his house. 

A rematch of Brady's 1st super bowl. Looking forward to the classic blue and golden yellow decorating the 'Benz. Really hoping for a different result than last game.

Meteor taking out both NE and LA training facilities?  No?

Meh.  Don't care.  IMO, this is an NFL generated match up.  Based on just the 2 conference games, the Rams definitely do not deserve to be there and the Patriots are iffy (some mighty questionable calls that went their way that helped pave the way for 2 scores).

I'll do something far more interesting on Super Bowl Sunday.  Maybe watch paint dry or something like that.

Brady's absurd run may seem interminable to many on this board by now but it's inevitably going to end sooner than later (he'll be 42 before next season starts.)  NE is the team I grew up on so I'm taking the Patriots but whatever happens I'm okay.  It's just amazing what he's accomplished this year in particular and I'm going to try to savor this game whatever happens.
