A lowly former Chiefs back-up is now the Super Bowl MVP and a former Chiefs coach is the champ. Nick Foles and Doug Pederson are in football heaven with the huge upset taking down the GOAT and the 8 time Super Bowl participants, the New England Patriots.
It was a classic game with over 1,100 total yards in offense, a Super Bowl and NFL record for one game. New England never punted; QB Tom Brady threw for over 500 yards, 3 td’s and no INT’s yet still lost! Wow.
Foles was perfect and their trick play, touchdown throw worked while the one to Brady didn’t.
It was insane.
The haters are rejoicing (since I picked the Patriots like I did last year and the last several years) it was a big upset.
This may be the end of a New England dynasty – the NFL’s longest and best ever.
To me its sad to see it all end.
I am one who admires greatness and the few who do it for so long, like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
A record like Tom Brady’s may never come again. We witnessed the greatest. He says he is coming back, and I wouldn’t count Tom out for another run at the title. However with younger teams and the fact it wasn’t Brady who lost the game, it was his defense, who knows?
Things do change and they are changing.
Yes, younger quarterbacks are on the rise like Deshaun Watson and our own Patrick Mahomes. Soon it will be their time. Brady had his fantastic career but it has to come to an end.
You saw the game, big play after big play on both sides.
The shocker was just how great a more than forgotten quarterback like Nick Foles was.
Foles was the game’s MVP.
As for me, I’d like to see Brady retire and move one with his life. The man has done it all, why stick around for the hater bums to start really jumping on you as things slow down?
Go out on top with an 8th Super Bowl and a career nobody may ever come close to seeing again.
The Eagles won and deserved it – two great teams had a fantastic Super Bowl 52!
