Mediocre Bowl

It definitely wasn't a super bowl. It was ok. The last few minutes were decent. The rest of the game was zzzzzzzzz. I did have the Giants 9 Pats 0 square, though. So that was cool to win the 1st quarter & halftime. Although, the squares were only $1. But I'll take a $33 profit over a $12 loss.

$33 would set me up comfortably for 3 months. /mize

I'll say it. The halftime show was ok. I mean, it wasn't awesome, but it wasn't the worse* performance ever. Old school Madonna songs are alright. And MIA giving the bird was funny. Cee Lo is an ugly motherfucker, though. Looks like he has downs or something, too. Did anyone see that one dancer dude that was on the top right part of the screen when Madonna was walking down the bleacher steps. He was swinging his leg around and it looked like he didn't have any knee ligaments or something. It was creepy.

The commercials were really awful. I really can't remember seeing one that I thought was funny. There was one that I thought was decent, then it ended with some Star Wars shit, so that made it terrible.

Congrats to LP. Must be nice! Just don't be rev, please & thank you.

I wish I had taken today off. I really wanted to party last night, but I knew I had to work today so I only had 3 beers. Note to self: in future years, request the day after the Super BowlTM off. I don't know why I've nerve* done that. Just about everyone else at the party I was at has today off.

Kod, what does my name/pic even mean?

Typing a post on a PC is >>>>>>>>>>>>> than typing a post on a touch screen. I really can't put enough >>>>>>> in this statement.

I think my favorite play of the game was when the giants had 12 men on defense and still didn't cover ochocinco. And even though nobody covered him Brady still didn't throw it to him.

Beth said...

"Congrats to LP. Must be nice! Just don't be rev, please & thank you."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Beth said...

So it's 4th and 16 with like 35 seconds left in the game and a guy at the party I was at seriously asks if the Pats are going to go for it. (ns)

It's probably the first time I've really missed exfmbeth since the breakup because none of his friends who we'd have been watching the game with would've EVER asked that. If for some reason they had however, they'd have (rightfully) been mercilessly made fun of for a very very long time.

Aitch said...

Wow, that is pretty bad, Beth.

That's the problem with making the Superbowl such a must watch event. You get a lot of idiots watching who don't know shit about the game.

Yeah it's really just another meaningless game

Why is my commeny hilarity, Keith?



because its "over reaction Monday"

the giants are a better team with better players. I know some of you don't like cowherd, but he was exactly right this morning.

It's Happening said...

Why is my commeny hilarity, Keith?



To think that the loss is Brady's fault is redonk. 3 Giants fumbles, the Pats recover one but have 12 men on the field, and the Giants recover the other 2. The pass to Welker wasn't awful. QBs aren't going to hit guys in the numbers every time. Welker should have caught that ball. His body was in a weird position, which made it look tougher than it was. Brady had what, like 16 or 17 completions in a row at one point. Saying the loss is his fault is lame

It's Happening said...

because its "over reaction Monday"



Also, this

Aitch said...

I don't think it is an overreaction. I'm not saying he is a terrible QB or they should get rid of him. I'm saying he had a below average game that cost his team a Superbowl. The "drops" that people are referencing locally were in actuality poorly thrown balls, save for one.

Jugdish said...

brady has to be almost perfect...pats fas are spoiled by him

manningham is the giants 3rd receiver, he would be the pats #1

It's Happening said...

27/41 276 6.7 2 1 91.1


Terrible numbers

It's Happening said...

Maybe if a Pats RB could of* gotten over 50 yards they would of* won

Jugdish said...

The "drops" that people are referencing locally were in actuality poorly thrown balls, save for one.



i heard one football analyst on mike and mike this morning, can't remember who, that said brady threw that ball the way it should have been thrown because of the d. welker makes that catch 9 times out of 10. if he makes it yesterday, they probably win the game.

Jugdish said...

brady had a good game yesterday, his best receiving targets are two tight ends, one of which was injured and not effective

Aitch said...

1st and 10 on their own 43. Brady evades heavy pressure and steps up. Rather than scrambling for a few yards or throwing it away he heaves it downfield foolishly. Interception. Dumb play, just like 2 weeks ago vs. the Ravens.

It's Happening said...

welker makes that catch 9 times out of 10



He makes is 100 times out of 00

/Collinsworth

*100

Jugdish said...

Dumb play, just like 2 weeks ago vs. the Ravens.


most QBs don't play GREAT games against defenses like the giants and ravens

Aitch said...

Did I use the word terrible?

It's Happening said...

Rather than scrambling for a few yards or throwing it away he heaves it downfield foolishly


Yeah throwing it to your top threat (albeit not 100%) who is covered by a LB is foolish

Jugdish said...

its personnel man. belichick is famous for having something like 14 undrafted free agents and low round picks...that has caught up to them. they need better players around Brady

Jugdish said...

Did I use the word terrible?


charles barkley did

Jugdish said...

oh yeah, congrats Lp!

Aitch said...

They should of* run more in the 4th too. They were getting decent gains on the ground.

It's Happening said...

It's good to see O:FB still in motion

Jugdish said...

did a receiver quit on that route, or run a wrong route on that intentional grounding call in the 1st?

It's Happening said...

Brady should of* called more run plays.

Exactly. He was not 100%. He was ineffective.

tem said...

i blame the defense. they didn't give up a lot of points but they couldn't get eli off of the field.

Possession 37:05 22:55

15 minute advantage for the G-Men. That is a couple more drives that brady could have definitely used.

Jugdish said...

hilarity; that was my favorite line of the sb



luckily it was somewhat loud where i was so i didn't hear a lot of annoucning between guys talking football the the cackling hens in the room

tem said...

"did a receiver quit on that route, or run a wrong route on that intentional grounding call in the 1st?"


no. brady threw it away. receiver was well into his break when brady decided to throw it to a part of the field nobody was in.

It's Happening said...

Possession 37:05 22:55


That was because Brady sucked and couldn't stay on the field

/H

Jugdish said...

on a side note...the giants punter had a hell of a game yesterday too.

Aitch said...

He had 2 catches Keith. He couldn't get seperation. If you watched Gronk play all season, you would see he wasn't right.

It's Happening said...

"did a receiver quit on that route, or run a wrong route on that intentional grounding call in the 1st?"



I was hoping that Tuck went to the knees on that hit

Jugdish said...

hey, i had a catch!

/ochocinco

Aitch said...

Whatever, it's a game. There were a lot of factors that contributed to the loss, but my opinion is that Brady is most to blame. I'd still take him over 90% of the QBs in the NFL.

It's Happening said...

H is :-( today

Pass the Lysol said...

"the giants punter had a hell of a game yesterday too."


right? His celebration after the last punt was grate; I was half-expecting a Grammatica 2.0 injury

i blame coaching 1st. then D. then brady.

i blame coaching just because.


but i think the D was more to blame than brady. brady is 2nd to blame though. he made poor decisions in crunch time.

i blame coaching just because.



untimely penalties...

It's Happening said...

brady is 2nd to blame though.



good counting

Jugdish said...

i blame their gm. stop trading picks for lower picks and picking up guys like haynesworth and ochocinco. get better players.

Aitch said...

Yea the 12 men on the field that cost them a fumble and ultimately a TD was rough.

Belichick is GM. I have been saying for years that they need to hire a GM.

Jugdish said...

i also blame your face

tem said...

i loved it when the G men had 12 on the field and didn't cover ochocinco.

and then the pats didn't even look at ochocinco on that play.

Pass the Lysol said...

nice redemption by Mario there


that first oob grab must have been horrifying to Giants fans, I'm glad CC called him out on it

Pass the Lysol said...

It gave me flashbacks of Troy Williamson

Blue said...

i blame coaching because if belichik doesn't red flag the obvious catch right in front of him, then they have all 3 timeouts. Can stop the clock and get the ball back with a minute left and only needing a FG to win.

Blue said...

and on the ball that welker dropped, he ran the wrong route.

Pass the Lysol said...

"if belichik doesn't red flag the obvious catch right in front of him, then they have all 3 timeouts."


that's a good call there, I didn't think about that (ns)

Blue said...

tem being a former WR should understand, but the route he was running (inside seam route) was supposed to flex up the field more and less towards the sideline. If he runs the correct route, TD walks in

It's Happening said...

Belichick is GM. I have been saying for years that they need to hire a GM.




OK mize

It's Happening said...

Pass the Lysol said...

and the announcers were making it sound like Billy had no choice BUT to challenge


uh, it was clearly a catch, and that TO might have come in handy

El Padrino said...

Hi.

I just got in.

tem said...

"tem being a former WR should understand, but the route he was running (inside seam route) was supposed to flex up the field more and less towards the sideline. "


route was off because the D messed up. D wires were crossed. Corner was playing cover 2 and safety cover 4. So his intial route would have been audibled out of.

having said that though, the hole in the D on that is more up the sidelines so Welker should have bent it more to the sideline.

i still think brady could have put the ball on him. he saw what route wes was actually running and should have put it on him instead of behind him.

tem said...

"and the announcers were making it sound like Billy had no choice BUT to challenge"

they also said wes makes that catch 100 out of 100 times.

tem said...

welker was basically running a "holy shit i am wide open because the D fucked up, throw it to me, throw it to me" route.

Spaceman Spiff said...

was suite when gmen had 12 men on the field and the 'free play' cost the pats like 10 seconds

teams should take advantage of that more, under 30 seconds to go, other team has a long way to go, just jump offsides a couple times right before snap and pressure the QB, lose a few yards but kill some time

Spaceman Spiff said...

any reporter ask brady if he thinks he is in elitesha's class yet?

Blue said...

"having said that though, the hole in the D on that is more up the sidelines so Welker should have bent it more to the sideline."

oops that's what i meant.

the QB on the radio this morning was saying that the route should have flexed towards the sideline because the corner held and the safety was supposed to cover that edge of the field

Blue said...

on the brady int. I don't blame him on that.

the view they showed from behind brady told the whole story. he looks up, sees Gronk 3 yards past blackburn with nobody behind him...chuck it.

just throw it farther

El Padrino said...

shocked he escaped the sack

^^^^^^^^^^; that and the Gints 2 point conversion

tem said...

gronk vs stiff linebacker.

throw it everytime. gronk needs to either catch it or break it up.

but gronk isn't 100% healthy so he couldn't do it.

brady can't possibly keep track of all the people's health levels. if gronk can't break up a pass he shouldn't be out there at all.

El Padrino said...

"at 7:29pm EST I sent el pad my first text of the night congratulating him on the win."

by the way i thought this was keef the whole time

never programmed names from lov peeps on the old phone im using and dont memorize area codes

knew aitch because of the context of the messages but not yours

El Padrino said...

good stuff tem

El Padrino said...

aitch is welker going to off himself?

tem said...

i can see the welker should have altered his route more to the sideline.

i still think though that brady should have seen what route he was actually running, seen that he was open and thrown it more on him.

of course maybe he was trying to throw it on him and it just went behind him a bit.

i haven't heard brady say that he was expecting welker to bend it more outside.

El Padrino said...

see what gisele said?

"well he cant throw the ball AND catch it at the same time"


SNAP

El Padrino said...

While making her way toward the elevator, Giants fans were harassing the supermodel, yelling that "Eli rules, Eli owns your husband." and she responded to her entourage. "You [need] to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time," she said in a video obtained by TheInsider.com. "I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."

El Padrino said...

my question is brady clearly threw it to sort of lead him to a spot and he had the room welker kind of bend back had the opposite shoulder to turn

he could have just kept running and catch it sort like a over the shoulder type bomb we've seen from him before

Spaceman Spiff said...

"SNAP"

they also said wes makes that catch 100 out of 100 times.



Interesting. Hadn't heard that before

Aitch said...

Welker just got engaged to a former Hooters model. Don't think he'll off himself yet.

El Padrino said...

lots of mileage on hooters chicks

El Padrino said...

Brady had to throw the ball away from the safety in the middle of the field to keep Welker from getting creamed. In attempting to do so, he overthrew the pass and forced Welker to make an awkward turn for the ball. Welker still could have made the catch, but it was far more difficult than it needed to be. The receiver has tried to take responsibility for the play, but it's likely more on Brady than it is on Welker.

Jugdish said...

if i remember right, the ball didn't hit welker in the hands...he actually had it in his hands for a moment, then it slipped out

Spaceman Spiff said...

yea, ball slipped out when he squeezed

Blue said...

he threw it towards the sideline not because the safety would have creamed him, but because that's where the open area of the field is.

how is it brady's fault that welker turned the wrong way

Spaceman Spiff said...
