My amazing wife: I'm going to wake up early to make sure I drop off the kid in the morning, because you're going to be hungover.
Kelpapa: I'am goisngt so bre fime, but thalks.
We have a 2-month old. I did as much child care throughout the day as possible. Once 9pm and the second half rolled around, the wife knew we were in playoffs mode and she started to kill clock like 18-year vet Brady.

I wish I knew how to retroactively record on Xfinity as I rewatched the OT x 2. What fucking game. Hey Max Kellerman, hows that cliff?

I mean, he lined up in the neutral zone. It’s not like it is a judgment call. Why would the refs ever not call that, it’s like illegal formation or false start.

Pats 0-2 in Super Bowl rematches.

Color me scared.

Brady/Belichick Pats 5-0 in Super Bowls outside the NFC East.

Color me confident.

Curt Schilling deserves to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Great record, especially when under pressure and when it mattered most. Do what everyone in Baseball knows is right! @marklevinshow

The Miami play is now just a comical footnote of the 2018 season.

In the simulacrum
When do the weirdo videos from Missouri start to emerge where middle aged guys destroy their living rooms as the Pats rip them in overtime?

I always find those to be a good laugh!

I love that some guy whose name sounds just like Derek Jeter was the guy who picked up and ran with the Edelman muff, then had the play reversed. It reminded me of the A-Rod slap in 2004.

Reading a game recap right now reminded me that among the many other bad calls tonight...the Chiefs scored their go-ahead TD with 2 minutes left on a blatant offensive interference pick play.

Remember that when someone is whining to you about the refs costing the Chiefs the game this week.

4 fucking SB berths in five years, and on the doorstep of five in a row.
What if I told you that when the Patriots were down by 14 against the Ravens in 2014? It would be really hard to imagine, coming off playoff losses to the Ravens, Jets, Giants, Ravens, and Broncos. Amazing how things have changed since that moment.

back to this one:
Imagine what kind of $ you could’ve won with an all road round 1, all home round 2, all road Conference round parlay?
uh, big fat Zero, because Dallas won their home game?

Home teams (i.e. the bye teams) win the divisionals at like a .750 clip, too, because they're the better teams and have had an extra week to get healthy. So that's not all that extraordinary. And two of the wild-card road-team-winning games were between teams that had essentially equal point differentials (LAC-BAL and IND-HOU).

I dunno, I consider the first 3 rounds of the playoffs this year to be somewhat unlikely in their results, but not "WTF how did that just happen".

I always wonder if guys like Lewis, Solder and Dola who were salty after they left (but got paid) regret their decisions when they see the pats in another Super Bowl. Or if they are just fine with it given all the money they got

Reading the Ty Law piece the other day on The Players Tribune, and similar sentiments over the years, I have an inkling that a lot of them regret leaving the Pats after a few years have passed.

yeah I don't think Solder was salty at all, especially if you read that Players Tribune article about him and his kid and the love and support he got from Kraft, McDaniels and basically everybody.

Don't even remember Amendola being all that salty, he seemed pretty neutral. But same goes for Chris Long, Richard Seymour, Logan Mankins, etc - a bunch of them just approach it like the business decision that it is.

Sure they're not all like Vince who clearly pines for Foxboro and would run through a brick wall for Belichick, but the saltiness from the likes of Dion Lewis is pretty rare I think.
