You're right but I would rather lose the way the Packers did, knowing the team was depleted, playing on fumes, than what happened to the Falcons. I think about Packers and Seahawks for NFC Championship, Pack with the lead and gave it up the last 3 minutes (another lost chance to play the Patriots)!

I'm listening to Dan Patrick and they are discussing the overtime rules, so many pros and cons on this subject. I think I'm in the keep it the same during regular season but maybe both teams should get a possession in the playoffs, not sure.

Saw an awesome ad with Brady for Shields MRI. Putting all his rings in the locker, including his "new" one, she says something and he says, "Roger that"!

Saw that ad last night. Instant classic!! And I watched the Packers game, and despite the way the looked manhandled, Rodgers played his heart out despite all of the roadblocks facing him. He is great, but sorry he is no Tom Brady

I get it, and also get Tom is more capable of adjusting and doing more with less. Whether it is Rodgers or McCarthy, their inability to adjust, make changes, do something different, they are not the "bend don't break" team they think they are. No running game, best players in their secondary out, and they didn't do much to compensate.

Brady and Belichick are the best at it, no doubt in my mind. They work so well with what they have, make adjustments.

Haven't the Patriots been down to mainly second string players in at least a couple of years and still come away as AFC Champs and even SB Champs? Belichick just knows how to stop the bleeding better than most coaches.

No doubt about it, that's why I said above they work so well with what they, make great adjustments, more with less than any other coach and QB tandem, I think.

Best part of that ad is Brady filmed it in September while he was on his little "vacation"

Brady is a class act, that's for sure. He knows what it takes to win a Super Bowl.

Yes he is. And I am not a fan of him or his team, but I have the highest respect for him and his coach. They know how to patiently adapt to any situation and win.

On another note, the idea that someone would steal his jersey is lower than low. That is about as low as a fan or someone desperate for money can get.
Very Very Low. I do not like it.
