    I recall Dola and Solder complained it wasn’t “fun” and were looking forward to a different environment - I took that as just a nicer version of salt

    I don’t want to ever forget that Hogan catch with 6 min to go on 3rd and 8 when it was 21-17 KC. Drop that and we likely punt and the win probability goes WAY down. So many clutch plays tonight.

    I see a lot of people talking about Mahomes (who was great in the second half) and how he couldn't have possibly done more to win the game and it was unlucky the Chiefs lost the coin flip.

    If you put up a donut in the first half, you could have done more to win the game. Just my two cents.

    Cmon man. Not needed. Voices from other teams are wonderful and they come into a difficult place. The other voices add a lot of value to the board. I think we both disagree with the statement but let's at least bring some evidence to the rebuttal.

    if you still can't sleep and it's 3:00am (ET), tune into ESPN2 for World #1 Simona Halep vs Serena Williams in the year's first major championship, the Australian Open. That is, if you like rooting for the aging GOAT who can still bring the heat and shouldn't be counted out against anyone, going up against a young-gun "#1 offense" who might be a bit of a paper tiger.

    I’m living in the KC area currently, and let me tell you, the schadenfreude is going to be amazing for me. Billboards everywhere about bringing the Hunt trophy home, newscasters talking about booking tickets to Atlanta, all the asshole parents on my kids’ sports teams that give us shit for cheering on Boston teams. It’s going to be great.

    I had to disappear immediately. My cousin and his wife were over for dinner and I was sitting on the kitchen counter watching the stream with my jaw clenched for an hour. When it ended, I finally joined them and my back and neck hurt from sitting there for so long.

    I was responding to the totality of his posts. I’m fine with outside voices — while I think it is weird that the poster would seek out this thread to try and somehow (unsuccessfully) throw shade on this victory, have it at. I’m comfortable responding though when, frankly, that is what they are looking for.

    I am actually happy that jackass (sodenj5) got unbanned from this board

    This is making the rounds

    espn: After the game, Brady approached a security guard waiting outside the Chiefs' locker room and asked if he could see quarterback Patrick Mahomes, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington. Brady was escorted into a room where he spoke briefly with him. Brady said he wanted to keep the conversation personal and added, simply, "He's a great player with a great team."

    Instead of bitching and moaning, they should get a coach like Bill Belichick.

    With the Rams now good again and the KC loss, this has to pretty much be the worst day in Missouri football history.

    Thanks for the timeout late in 2nd Q Andy. Game changer and allowed Pats to go up 14-0.

    Haven’t gone through the game thread yet. I was at the game. Amazing. There’s nothing BB and TB12 can’t do. Arrowhead was awesome. Loud. Great fans fans, very accommodating and respectful. I’m my hotel room now 5 hours later and still so jacked I can’t sleep. Tomorrow will be rough. Worth the effort and every damn penny to make it out here.

    That delay of game on the punt was bs. Ref wouldnt even let them snap it until play cock was at zero.

    I didn't realize the minimum the Chiefs scored in a game all year was 26.

    so 31 has to be considered a win overall. 7 of those points was on a short field after an INT. wish it was a bit less, and the Pats fucked up a couple possessions. but ultimately it was enough to get to OT when we had the heavy time of possession advantage against their shitty & gassed D.

    Rexy on Get Up on ESPN this morning criticizing KC for not taking away Edelman and Gronk in overtime. He didn’t stop them in seven years of coaching in the AFC east. What a blowhard.

    I suppose.

    What more are they gonna do on that third down slant to Gronk? That throw was incredible.

    My favorite Rex tidbit was the pick play that allowed KC to score was not a penalty because the Patriots have been getting away with that play for years. Solid analysis.

    -2 on turnovers, stopped on 4th and 1 in KC territory, a 3rd and 1 earlier, and they still pulled it out.

    All the nice Patriots designs have been used. It’s was either these or change the year on an old one.

    The seed to Edelman on third down was amazing as well. Perfect throw and the KC defender threw his hands up as if there was nothing else he could do. I would love to get a statcast breakdown of that throw. When he threw it, I thought it was one of the fastest, tightest throws I've ever seen from Brady.

    The throw on the first play of the 2 minute drive was a fricking laser. Just pin point to JE in a very tight window.

    Kellerman take: Brady and the Pats were lucky.

    LOL, Damian Woody claps back, 'where the hell you get off saying he's just lucky?' 'You keep coming on this show saying he's lucky or he's falling off the cliff.'

    Kellerman now getting double teamed by Woody and SAS on his Brady lucky take.

    Having his feet firmly in the "good" double-standard camp goes right along dipping his toes into full-blown "the Pats are cheating frauds" cesspit. He'll toe a more level-headed line if called on it by ESPN, but he know where his soles at.

    It seems there is a bit of sourness over the neutral zone/ offsides penalty? Well it is worth noting that you can see on the game broadcast that the side judge has started to pull out the flag before the snap because he is standing right there, looking at the guy in the neutral zone.

    Last night it seemed like I was hearing a fair amount of concern that it was a swallow-the-flag moment, and Reid seemed a little skeptical in his presser.

    Was there any discussion why it was Rex as the featured runner even in the I formation in the fourth quarter and overtime? Just fresher legs maybe? Or was it an adjustment to how the Chiefs we’re defending the run when they saw that Michel was in the game?
