Seems almost every playoff game this year came down to the last few seconds or even overtime. Pulling for Stafford and the Rams this year. Stafford served his time in Detroit, and now has a chance to win a Superbowl. One thing I strongly dislike is the overtime rules. It should be more like college where each team gets the ball at least once. The way it works now is who ever wins the toss for overtime has a big advantage.
Was just pointed out to me that this is the first superbowl to have two SEC college QBs playing.
I got a sick feeling yesterday in the second quarter when the Chiefs were up 21-3 and seemed to be practicing their dancing skills for the super bowl. It’s not over until it’s over. And if they would think back to the regular season, the same damn thing happened against Cincy…up by an “insurmountable” lead before halftime and mugging and dancing in the end zone.
Two years ago when the Chief’s played the 49ers one of my co-workers said the was rooting against the 49ers because of Colin Kaepernick. I pointed out to her that the 49ers had released him three years prior and that he had not played for them since. She acknowledged that but said it didn’t matter to her.
Some people will root against teams for the strangest reasons.
I haven’t been much of an NFL fan in years, and that goes for major colleges, too. But I will admit, the NFL put on quite a show this year coming down the stretch, and wifey and I put our prejudices on hold for a couple of weeks and watched most of every game. If the NFL had the goal of establishing balance, they achieved it in spades.
I wish baseball could do the same. Big markets and big payrolls have skewed most of the balance, except for the Rays who I’ve followed for decades… I think they still have the Devil working for them despite the name change.
They were great games, caught the first game in OT and most of the second game.
I’m pulling for Bengals because it’s been forever for them and I have a soft spot in my heart for Joe Burrow. Love the dude’s swagger and he handed me a Fantasy championship after drafting him in the 11th round. But wouldn’t mind seeing the Rams win because that team does it right and I’d like to see Stafford get a ring as his time is running out. You could say Burrow will get back to the big game, but Dan Marino might have something to say about that.
We have people that pull for or root against teams solely based upon the politics of their state? You’re such a hack Price!
I mentioned on the CHB that the evening the NFL announced its decision on the Rams I was listening to the press conference. You could hear the anger in the St Louis reporters’ voices directed to Kroenke.
