U mad bro?

Youngest team ever to win a superbowl. Finished in week 3 apparently :lol: :lol: :lol:


Not mad. Well done to the Patriots as they played really well. Just shows what you can do when you have a team whose management throughout the organisation know what they are doing unlike some teams. I'd not be surprised to see your team win a couple more before Brady retires which will not be until after the 2017 season at least I believe. Shocking call though from the Seahawks at the end !!!!

I was delighted with that last call on Sunday. The Seahawks have had more luck this season than many will have in a lifetime. Justice!

'This team is going to kill me' were my words with about 10 minutes left to my brother and friend, little did I know how it was going to end I was nearly right! :shock: :lol:

Went from thinking we'd never win it again to thinking we had finally won it to 'oh ffs not again' with Kearse's Tyree impression all within space of a few minutes. Took my a while to realise Butler had picked Wilson off. Still hasn't even sunk in yet.

Think the people saying it was a bad playcall need to realise how good a play it was by Malcolm Butler, Lockette was wide open and IMO it wasn't a bad throw Butler just made a great play on the ball.

Butler's anticipation & physicality was great but not THAT amazing, in a crowded/compressed area & with the Seahawks bang average receivers that was a mickey poor call on any regular season play, never mind the superbowl with less than a minute on the clock, it's a bullshat call to throw into obvious traffic and/or to waste a few precious seconds which shows he (Carroll) had either no trust in his defence to hold out for what 20 seconds or Lynch to run it in. :CRAZY:
You have bodies all over the place so unless you have a Gronk/Bryant/Johnson whom you could call upon to stand tall & firm, in a clutch call situation 1 yard from the line you go with the league's most devestating running back.
It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and Wilson should have had the balls to say coach you're making a mistake but that's not how gridiron works is it.
Exciting game throughout but such a dissapointing ending to lose on such a terrible call.

A goal line interception in the last minute of the biggest game of the season wasn't that amazing? Get the funk out of here. It was a LEGENDARY play, that's how amazing it was.

You clearly know fack-all about the sport then, it was a great interception, it wasn't amazing, he didn't have to do anything fantastic other than use his body to nudge the receiver off the ball and do his job in terms of following his man/anticipating that the ball was going in that direction.
But whatever know knack all

Jarryd Hayne to sign with the 49ers apparently!! Be interesting to see how he goes and if he makes the final roster

You're getting hung up on your own sense of self-importance. It was an amazing play. So amazing, it actually won the game. That's how amazing it was. Amazing :D

Yeah that's true know nowt, totesamazeballs, it won a game..correct, it wasn't an amazing play, pretty regular tbh. That it happened to be the championship doesn't enhance it any more..go back to your 49er's glory hunting..oh wait.. :lol: :wink:
