Wait

The Bills remain in the locker room fot the National Anthem. Didn’t know they did that all season.

Would they be allowed to do that in the Super Bowl?

This is on Rodgers. His defense gave him the ball three times with a chance to take the lead or tie the game, and he got only a FG.
This. 100% this. But his defenders (aka the media) will point to his rating and say how much better he played than Brady (which isn’t the case either).

Edit - and the Bucs were missing their two starting safeties for most of the game.

Double Edit - Rodgers was probably better than Tom bc he avoided the turnovers, but Tom made the plays he had to and Rodgers missed some.

California. Duh.
3 players lost 4 with the Bills and then an additional one later. Can’t find all the Bills who lost 4 though.

The Vikings lost 4 in 8 years in the 70s but I have no idea if anyone was there for all 4. I thought Tarkenton may have been, but I forgot he went to the Giants for a few years in between Vikings stints and missed the first one.

I'm not rooting for it, but after last weeks bell-ringing, I don't think Mahomes makes it through this game.
I'd love to know what the latest NFL concussion protocol consists of.

I dread the false dilemma, bullshit of was it Brady, or was it Belichick? that is inevitably going to get played out over the next 2 weeks, but happy for Tom. I had a few issues with some of the shots taken at BB and the Patriots culture this year, and Antonio Brown, but I can't not feel good for him. Guy gave us so much fun and winning for 2 decades.

Fran wasn't there for SB IV but a number of the defenders (Eller, Page, Marshall) were there for all four.

No this is nonsense. Brady left NE and went to a team loaded with weapons. He’s been fantastic and this will enhance Brady’s legacy but in no way diminishes Belichick’s.
This is probably discussed ad nauseum in other threads, but what's the consensus on what Brady does on the Pats this year?

“Is the player the face of the league?”

Yes: X No:

“Yeah, he’s good. Send him out there.”

It’s not clear the Belichick needs Brady but a sb win for Brady would prove Brady doesn’t need Belichick

edit: I’m not saying Brady winning does anything to Belichicks legacy
Which is fine but people using this year as a reason to denigrate BB are being dumb. I have no doubt both guys would’ve have plenty of success without the other but the two working together for 20 years is what gave us 6 trophies and 9 trips to the big game.
