Clearly her defensive boxing skills have not improved in the slightest since her last fight where she also got knocked out.

Rodgers with yet another Hail Mary TD, Giants look totally outmatched on both sides of the ball. Looks like Eli's postseason luck finally ran out.

Um, no. The Giants' defense beat the shit out of Green Bay until the end of the second quarter.

Are they? Gee, I didn't know that. So the Giants had the advantage for 29:45 of the game. Is that better?

Tom Brady has advanced to the AFCCG 11 times in 15 seasons, or 73.3% of his career. He is more likely to reach a title game than many QBs are to complete a pass. The Patriots have now reached said game for the 6th straight season, an NFL record. Tom Brady has played in 32 playoffs games, two entire regular seasons worth and has won more individual games than 23 NFL franchises have in their entire existence.
--------------------

As usual my pick for winning it all was wrong, as Aaron Rodgers "Aaron Rodgers'ed" the Cowboys this past weekend. Really don't want to see him in a possible SB matchup, with the Patriots' history of wild SB catches I don't want Mr. Hail Mary himself throwing in the final seconds.

Much to everyone's delight the Seahawks were eliminated and acted like spoiled children afterwards. Falcons look incredibly strong on offense and very competent on defense, I think they have what it takes to knock off the Packers.

Steelers coming into Gillette stacks up better than against KC's defense, but Bell and Brown are the best two players at their respective positions in the entire NFL and Ben doesn't seem to register pain and is an absolute tank. If the Patriots special teams unit can stop coughing up the f**king ball then we should walk out with a win and a trip to Brady's 7th SB appearance.

Prediction that will almost certainly be wrong about SB51: Falcons 27 - Patriots 31
--------------------

I'm moving into my first house soon (hooray) and very soon after going to Iceland for 8 days (hooray) so I won't be around to absorb salt and/or gloat like hell (I'll actually be in Reykjavik for the SB) at whatever transpires.

Until I return...GO PATS!

And he's still a cheater.

And the Giants beat them twice in the Super Bowl.

I hope that Aaron Rodgers destroys the Pats. Destroys them.

The NFL playoffs have been terrible this year. Most of these games have been complete blow outs. The only entertaining matchup was the Cowboy/Packers game.

The Packers' defense was garbage, and I can't understand why. The Giants had the same problem in Philly.

For the first time ever, I'm pulling for the Pats — simply because I desperately want to see the glorious awkwardness between Goodell and Bel/Brady.

I mean, I'm obviously pulling for number 5, but the Falcons winning the big one is a nice end to the season as well.

I just want a good close game, like stogie said, these playoffs have been extremely boring apart from a couple games.

This sounds like it would make a wonderful GIF. Also it might make GRRM mad enough to actually finish a book (he hates the Patriots with a passion, and even made a minor joke character in ASIOF based on Belichek).

Greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Tom Brady is unquestionably the greatest QB to ever lace 'em up.

Guess the rest of my Iceland trip will include me with a shit-eating grin on my face.

Sweet dreams Pats haters

It was, I was very impressed (but the Falcons helped with the worst 2nd half misfire in history). Kudos to Brady and the Pats.

Niners fans can't win the Brady vs Montana argument anymore so they're saying that Brady is the "greatest of all time salarycap era" or GOATSE.

And Mark Wahlberg missed it. LOLZ!!! Here's video of him leaving 15-20 minutes prior to that amazing Edelman catch.

He then goes on Instagram and said his youngest son wasn't feeling well. (Riiiight, he looked fine in that video.)

Once Julio made that amazing sideline catch to put the Falcons at the Pats 22 the game was over. 99.6% chance of victory ESPN tells me. Then they abandon the run and go backwards 23 yards.

For nearly 3 full quarters the Falcons had the Pats stuffed in a trash can. They hit Brady early and often, which caused some bad throws and a pick-6 from inside the Falcons red zone. The bar I was at erupted, I dejectedly went outside and bummed a cigarette (haven't smoked in years) only to have an Icelandic Bills fan (I'm as confused as you) give me shit the whole time.

We returned to our airBnB to finish out the game watching a stream through my buddies MacBook on the TV here, I switched to water and abandoned all hope. After Edelman's circus catch I ended up on the floor glued to the screen and the rest is, literally, history.

Our fan base does not deserve this, we are the most spoiled and insufferable fans in pro sports, but damn has it been a ride....

I was rooting for ATL. But I gotta give credit where credit is due. That was an AMAZING comeback victory for the Patriots. Brady is most definitely the G.O.A.T.

I was surprised how quiet the crowd was when the winning touchdown was scored. I was expecting a mighty roar but it was quite a feeble increase over and above the baseline crowd noise in the stadium.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Because no one cares about Foxborough.

An original member of the American Football League (AFL), the Patriots joined the NFL in the 1970 merger of the two leagues. The team changed its name from the original Boston Patriots after relocating to Foxborough in 1971.

No Charles Oakley discussion yet?

That organization is a complete disaster. I would feel sorry for Knicks fans, but...Knicks.

I'm still waiting to hear from John McEnroe, who was apparently sitting right beside Oakley before all hell broke loose.

Reports: Tony Romo Will Replace Phil Simms In CBS Broadcast Booth

Oh my god, thank you Jesus no more Pheeel Seeeeems.

Didn't expect Romo to retire but it's the smart move for him, plus I didn't want to see him on the Broncos for purely selfish reasons.
