I’ve started posting here more recently but I’ve lurked for several years and I love you all. We’re so lucky. I’m so happy this community exists because you all care as much as I do and that’s so hard to find elsewhere and I mean I just can not believe how blessed we are to watch this team

Having two separate 3 SB dynasties a decade apart is flat out crazy. And that with two shoulda-wons in between.

I thought that was the rule. Happy for him.
Hope your kids loved the game bud
Daughter didn't make it to the end, but me and my son had a blast. He's 10 and he's seen 3 of these. When I was 10, I was watching the Pats get slaughtered by the Bears in 1986....I've been to 200 home games since that time, including a game in 1987 against the Bills that had less than 10,000 fans in attendance (to put that in perspective, I don't think there has been a single NFL game in at least a decade that had less than 30,000 fans). This is just inconceivable. I'm so happy, and we're so lucky.

That’s awesome. I can’t imagine that feeling. Mine are 4 and 2 and obviously barely have a grasp on what’s happening. I fear this stretch will be over before they gain that grasp. Cherish it.

LOL just listened to Andrew Whitworth... "who cares what happens, in the end we're all going to die".

that's a new press conference quote.

My oldest has been there with me since 2011 (he’s 13 now) and it’s been amazing. My 11 year old handed out tickets before the game. She had on all of the “Sorry not sorry” to the Rams.

Can we bring back the "Cut Gilmore" messages from early last year. I was in that group and I was wrong. Gilmore is money. Period.

LOL Tomlinson saying: "the most important thing is the Rams left their most important player on the sideline when it mattered most just like the Seahawks with Marshawn Lynch"

hahahaha the Pats shut down Gurley from the first snap of the game, shut the fuck up
I’ve been watching the NFLN post and LT has been pretty great.

That play by JMac is more amazing every time I see it.
Play of the game IMO.

Also Sony Michel seems like a really, really great kid and totally gets it. Could be here for a while.

Wait was it Jason who broke up the pass in the back of the end zone to Cooks? I had been thinking it was Devin.

edit: just watched the replay, it was Jason https://www.patriots.com/video/jason-mccourty-flies-in-to-break-up-would-be-td-to-brandin-cooks

what a great play
Jason.

Belichick said “oh my god” twice when asked about Jason McCourty’s pass break up. “McCourty came out of nowhere to make that play.”

It sort of makes me wonder what the fuck happened during those 10 lost years.
Well, what happened was what happens when you play remarkably, historically, unthinkably close and dramatic games year after year after year after year after year.

If Reche Caldwell catches a TD, or Asante Samuel catches an INT, or Wes Welker catches a pass, Tom Brady might have won his 9th ring tonight.

At the same time, if Dee Ford lines up onside two weeks ago, this is a Chiefs-Rams Super Bowl.

This is all insane.

Well sure. Or if Matt Ryan doesn't take a sack. Or if Pete Carroll runs the ball.

It wasn’t all that long ago that Kearse had caught that ball and I had slumped off the couch and was on my knees saying “why does this keep happening?” and that fourth title seemed as if it would never come.
