I just want to say I could watch the clip of Brady’s daughter asking Jules if he is happy, on loop. Just amazing. Makes it dusty every time. There’s something about that entire sequence, including Jules handing off BB’s granddaughter, that shows how close all these guys are. Family. After all the preseason bullshit stories we heard about the infighting, those post game moments are the ones I’ll remember from this SB.

The Kansas City fans as Uruk-Hai was some inspired editing.

Watched this the other night. Joseph Vincent is always incredible but this one takes it to another level. Had chills watching it and there were a few moments where I just couldn’t help but giggle gleefully. It’s a really outstanding video. Brady as Bane is just magical.

Fun interview with Brandon King and Jonathan Jones after the Super Bowl.


One great part is when they talked to Jones about covering Tyreek Hill, and Jones basically said he's as fast as Hill. I know Jones is fast, but then I kind of chuckled at this. Then I actually looked it up.

Hill's best was a 4.25. (see: https://heavy.com/sports/2019/01/tyreek-hill-speed-40-yard-dash-time-chiefs/)

But watch Jones at the combine:


Second attempt: 4.33
First attempt: 4.28

So yeah, he's basically the same speed as Hill. Or close enough anyway. That surprised me.

Jones doesn’t even look like he’s running as fast as he can. Smooth.

Just noticed something for the first time, as seems to always happen when re watching this stuff over and over. On the play where JMC breaks up the pass to Cooks in the end zone, I’m not sure that Cooks would have gotten both feet down and in bounds even if he had held onto it, given the pressure by McCourty.

Just rewatched it – Cooks is about 2’ or 2.5’ in bounds when he goes up for it. And he jumps up mostly vertical. Is it possible he doesn’t get both feet in if he catches it? Yes. But I wouldn’t say likely tho to know for sure bc once the play is broken up Cooks falls out of bounds trying to gain control.

Oh without pressure he obviously stays in bounds. But the way JMC twisted him around, it looks like his left foot might have never hit the turf in bounds with possession.

But hard to say anything definitively of course.

In some interview post game, McCourty said his primary goal as he was rushing to the spot was to drive Cooks out of bounds.

That Chiefs game, holy shit was that ever an all timer.
A pats-fan friend remarked the other day something to the effect of,

The Chargers got hit in the face and went down straightaway. No resistance at all.

The Rams got hit in the face and stayed up. Their return fire was weak, they never really stood a solid chance of winning, but they sustained a brutal beating before eventually succumbing.

It was the Chiefs, though, who could take a hit from the Patriots and hit 'em back just as hard. Nobody since the bye could put the hurting on the Pats' D quite the same way, certainly not as fast. The game see-sawed back and forth, the Chiefs held 2 different 4th quarter leads, the Pats 3. They were the worthiest opponent by far.

I felt the same way about the Astros in the MLB playoffs. Those were the real championship rounds.

Exactly.
It's like after the Sox beat the mfy's in 2004 and Theo said "We still have to play Finland" a la the 1980 miracle on ice hockey team. The Dodgers and Rams were Finland.

Not only beating the Chiefs, but beating them on the road in an incredibly loud stadium. Not quite like beating the Russians, but a very impressive and memorable win.

I noticed that too, but he was in on further inspection. Same with Woods on that sideline play, which looked like there was 0% chance he had live. The ball touches his hand just before his first foot lifts up, so he gets two down.

Yes but that was at a time when the AL was much better than the NL and the Cardinals had zero starters who could get swings and misses from the Sox batters.
Well, the 2003 Marlins beat the MFY in the world series and the 2004 Yankees had a 7 game worse Pythag than the 2003 team. But you're right about those Cardinals starters: Woodie Williams, Matt Morris, Jeff Suppan and Jason Marquis. Why was I worried about that team going in?

Because of the 86 years prior; I would have been worried had we played the Dedham High School varsity squad in that World Series.

I want to go get a Van Noy jersey after watching that interview. The proper response when you come across a clown is to laugh at him, and Kyle completely disarmed Kellerman. That was a treat to watch.

I actually thought Kellerman was kind of funny, kept working his schtick but being somewhat self effacing about it. SAS just looked like a suck up. Great job by Van Noy, he was pretty fucking funny.

Good catch, I think you’re right. Glad we never have to find out!

I don't watch Kellerman, but I see you guys talk about him all the time. Watching van Noy shut him down was awesome ("He's so mad" LOL)...

But does Kellerman have any level on his volume control besides "shout really loud".... how does this guy get paid to talk?

He gets paid to talk because hours after winning the Super Bowl Patriots players were holding signs with his face printed on and were guests at his show to throw the title in his face. Van Noy didn't shut him down, Max won. He got to be part of the story.

Courtesy of Mike Reiss, a preview clip from the Super Bowl 53 Champions DVD apparently coming out on tuesday:

The Mike Reiss article that included the clip is a good one but is also very cryptic in parts. The section on the departure of the Pats "character coach" being a prime example:

4. The departure of Patriots character coach/team development coach Jack Easterby after six seasons generated some buzz on sports radio in the region, as Easterby played a notable role in helping foster a positive team culture by providing great support to players. He also wouldn't be shy, according to those familiar with his work, in offering a hard, honest opinion. Easterby's contract expired this year, and had Josh McDaniels taken the Colts' head-coaching job last offseason, my sense is that Easterby would have joined him in Indianapolis. That's one reason his departure this year didn't come as a surprise. Jason La Canfora of CBS has reported Easterby is in discussions to join the Panthers' staff.

He is credited by Reiss as being a key element in the locker room but then he says he is not "shy...in offering a hard honest opinion". Why, if he would have followed McDaniels to Indy is he not staying with McDaniels here? Is Reiss implying that Easterby's eagerness to leave is an example of an "honest opinion" with regard to the organization? Or is this just a career move?
