He said Gronk was invisible out there again yesterday vs the Chargers. I guess all those rushing yards gained in no small part by his superb blocking didn't count.
Also the first touchdown which came after he drew a flag in the endzone. His only other target of the game was his 1 catch because they had no need to try to target to him with Edelman and White open all day, but I guess it's easier for national media to force a narrative.

And now for something completely different:

Defensive Players of the Week
An odd confluence of defensive stars. Sorensen and Van Noy were Brigham Young teammates in 2013.
Daniel Sorensen, safety, Kansas City. Two huge plays for a glue guy in the K.C. secondary that were huge in the Chiefs winning the AFC title game. He knifed through the New England line on a Patriot fourth-and-one run by Rex Burkhead, stoning Burkhead for no gain and turning the ball over to the Chiefs. Then Sorensen picked off Tom Brady midway through the fourth quarter, leading to a K.C. TD. And he had 14 tackles. Must be nice, playing the best game of your life in the biggest game of your life.

"If the flag gets thrown, which is the logical move in retrospect, does the outcome change? The Saints are convinced it does. We’ll never know."

Do the math Peter!

1:49 left. Rams had 1 time out left, clock is stopped.

They are at either the 5 or the 10, either way, more than close enough. One run or knee, Rams take time out #3. Second run or knee, now there's about a minute left. Third one, under 20 seconds. Only real chance I can see them having, barring a Miami type scenario; is that on one of those runs the Saints don't take a knee and they let them score a TD unopposed. The odds on the field goal being good are maybe 98%.

He also says the call “quite possibly” kept the Saints from the SB and later writes “if the call gets made it’s conceivable and perhaps likely” the Saints win.

Sure there could have been a fluke missed FG or a brain fart Miracle in the Meadowlands play but if that call is made it is indeed 98%+ the Saints win, which is much higher than “quite possibly” or “perhaps likely.”

The difference between Peter King and us is that his professional training activates a chip that requires him to couch what he says when describing such events. He has to use the qualifying phrases; we do not.

That said, I must now shower in scalding water to cleanse myself for defending Peter King
