I’m not really ball washing the Pats, I’m just saying this year they were gettable and we fucked up sk royally that we didn’t even have a chance at the rematch. Total failure.

Amen. Now, let's go out there and for ONE TIME be a player in free agency. Eagles and Pats both signed big name free agents and it worked out fine for them. There is no dishonor in signing a FA rather than building your entire team (or most of it) via the draft. Colbert needs to step up his FA game and get with the 2018 program.

Agreed. We need a big time FA pick up on defense.

Pats SB runs

2001 - Tuck rule; return repunted punt for TD and blocked FG for TD
2003 - Chargers intercept pass to clinch victory, but knucklehead returns ball instead of falling to ground, Pats recover and win
2004 - Eagles 6 min drive with 7min left down two scores (a Tomlin/Ben staple btw)
2015 - Pete did what? interception at goal line
2017 - Falcons did what? Give up 25 pt 3rd quarter lead


2001 - Pats were up 17-3 in the fourth quarter. Ty Law pick sixed Warner for a 24-3 lead, but the idiot Willie McGinest got flagged for a defensive hold. Rams come back to tie, but the Pats made the plays to get into FG position.
2003 - That Chargers game happened in 2006.
2004 - How do you penalize the Patriots for Andy Reid's and Donovan McNabb's stupidity?
2015 - Malcolm Butler made the play. Pretty sure he was a Patriot.
2017 - Patriots made plays to come back.

Again, we can play this game with the Steelers Super Bowl victories as well.

1974 - Frank Lewis near fumble that wasn't called when the game was 9-6. Huge turning point. Lucky that ref saw that Lewis hit the ground first as there were no official reviews then.
1975 - Steelers went for it on 4th and nine leading to a near repeat of the miraculous Hail Mary pass in Minnesota.
1978 - Barnes called for interference? Really? And Jackie Smith drops that sure pass? Really?
1979 - Ferragamo's brainfart leading to the Lambert INT. If not for that, the Rams were rolling over the vaunted Steel Curtain defense.
2005 - Lots of questionable ref calls that could have gone either way. Hell Leavy even admitted it. Turns out this was the Super Bowl the Steelers won by the most points. Amazing that.
2008 - If not for that final last minute drive after the Steelers defense shit the bed against Warner to Fitz.

See how silly it is?

And in 2001, as Swiss will remind everyone, why did the Patriots get that re-punt?

Because BILL BELICHICK noticed from film study that Troy Edwards repeatedly ran out of bounds when going downfield on punts, and alerted the officials to watch for it.

THE OPPOSING COACH noticed...our own coach didn’t. We had STs problems all season long, and they were never fixed.

Minor nitpick...we won Super Bowl XIV by the most points (12), not Super Bowl XL (11 points).

The theme that the opposing coaches were stupid while the Pats coaches were smarter is a theme though.

John Fox chasing points in Super Bowl XXXVIII. Had he not done that, the Panthers are leading 31-28 when Casey’s kick goes OOB, so at worst, the game is headed to overtime.

Andy Reid and his horrendous clock management, assisted by a puking Donovan McNabb.

Pete Carroll eschewing the run against the worst short yardage defense in the NFL that year.

And Dan Quinn being STUPID AGGRESSIVE late in Super Bowl LI. Run three times...bleed Patriot timeouts...kick FG...go up by 11...win game. That’s all he needed to do there.

Even Doug Pederson...as smart as he was the whole game...made a critical error that luckily was negated by Bill Belichick making a dumber one on the ensuing kickoff.

Pederson had an opportunity to make sure the Patriots never got the ball again and secure a 38-33 victory.

2:03 left- 2nd down and 5. Pederson should have called a safe pass play to try and get the first.

He gets the first...game over. Three knees and run out the clock. Win.

He doesn’t get the first...the Eagles are in the same position as they are if they run the ball on second down.
