      And we all wish it was the Red Rifle, the clapping clown and bald headed tree sloth getting the trophy. But alas, that dream will remain just that.

        I would love that, but the machine will prevail. Belichick is Vince Lombardi.

          Even if the Falcons win, it is still 7 SB's for the Pats in Bellickick's time. Amazing.

            Why would you think it to be agony? The entire overblown spectacle doesn't register one emotion one way or the other.

            When your heroes hoist the trophy, you will be giddy as a schoolgirl, but I will just be my disinterested self, glad another Circus year is concluded.

              I think of Belichick more like Paul Brown. Quite and smart. I often wonder if Paul would have still been coaching if he would of had the Browns in the first 2 Super Bowls.

              Yes Belichick is best coach in the NFL. But Atlanta has two very good coaches in Quinn and Shanahan. Again it will be Falcons by 14.

                  Mad respect for Belichick / Brady.

                  The greatest coach / qb the game has ever seen.
                  The Bengals have abused their fans so much over the years, they might as well hold an annual Punch Your Customers In the Face Day.

                    That actually was a good game. And, for once, devoid of NFL shenanigans. And, they still made their buchoo billions.

                    It's what can happen if they just let the teams play.

                      For once it was about the game and not the commercials. Gaga did great half time show. Much better than last 6.

                        Yes, you could make that comparison to PB. Like Lombardi, they all three demand everything you got plus complete allegiance to the system. don't measure up - you're gone. Simple as that. Nothing like here in Cincinnati, where you can hang on to a job forever, coaches and players.

                        I don't think New England ever has to "dumb down" the playbook, like they admit that they do here from time to time.

                          And of course the Pats have a ton of salary space/ I am willing to bet they will not use a cent of it for the likes of Peko:

                          Ordinarily, you’d expect the worst teams to have a lot of salary cap space and the best teams to have very little salary cap space because the best teams have a lot of good players to pay. Heading into 2017, there’s one exception to that: The Super Bowl champion Patriots.

                          While nine of the 10 teams with the most cap space available in 2017 were teams that missed the playoffs, the 10th is the Patriots. Via Spotrac, the Patriots head into 2017 with $63 million in cap space, which is the sixth-most in the NFL. Only the Browns, 49ers, Buccaneers, Titans and Jaguars have more cap space than the Patriots.

                          That’s a testament to the way Bill Belichick has run the team since taking over in 2000: Belichick is always very careful not to overpay for players, and he doesn’t hesitate to let high-priced veteran players walk and replace them with inexpensive younger players.

                          The Patriots have to feel particularly good about where they stand compared to the rest of their division: The Dolphins have $29 million in cap space, the Bills have $27 million and the Jets are $7 million over the cap, meaning they’ll have to make some roster moves just to get under the cap before the start of the league year next month. The Patriots have a lot more room to improve their roster than the other teams in their division do.

                          New England is on top, and well-positioned to stay on top. No one should be surprised if a year from now, the Patriots are again celebrating a title.

                            I wanted Dallas, New England, or Green Bay to win the Super Bowl this year. Dallas would have six and tie Pittsburgh for most Super Bowl wins. New England or Green Bay would be at 5. So with New England with five, if they were to repeat, they would known as "Six Borough" and the Six-Burgh moniker would go away. Every Pittsburgh fan I know, after any loss says "We got six! How many do you have?" to just about anybody.

                              Just do what I do, remind them that the Super Bowl is just another name for the NFL Championship, Green Bay has 13, NYG have 9. They cannot erase 40 years of history just because it does not fit into their argument.
