It's going to be a long, long offseason in Georgia...
Congratulations on your squad. ATL is up and coming, they'll be alright. At least the bandwagon fans won't be there for ATL. New England made the plays and fought back to win. This experience should either motivate or break ATL. As a football fan, Tom played great and is the GOAT.

That was a good one, yes.

Yes I think Brady is MVP. He collected his 39-y.o. body to come back and play like an MVP, to be sure.

McGinest bringing the trophy in. Classy.

Edit. Until he just now dropped an F bomb on national TV.

Not really 'my squad', though I wanted them to win and I do admire the ability to win year in and year out, especially in a sport with free agency and a fairly hard salary cap and floor.

Nothing against Atlanta - they played on hell of a game, and had they gone out 28-3 ahead of any of the other 30 franchises, they'd be Super Bowl champions right now. They just ran up against two men who have been there before half a dozen times and seen it all.

Is he the oldest Super Bowl MVP ever? (assuming he wins)

I'm streaming it. Is this the same as live television? McGinest is telling all the Patriots to "kiss this mother****** [the trophy]".

Congrats to Tom Brady who put his team on his back and took a beating to win. He's truly the GOAT. As a proud Falcons fan I'm proud of my guys but disguised the Falcons couldn't muster a single point when it was needed.

One of things that makes the Patriots the team they are are the adjustments they make. And how the assistant coaches are bouncing ideas back and forth to each other. They had time to do just that at halftime, even though the Falcons did score a touchdown in the third quarter.

Belichick is a master of the chess game. You don't see him with the headsets on all that often, in fact I didn't see him with them on the whole second half. He has quality assistants, yet that doesn't get much of a mention, at least in this sub forum.

One of the great comeback wins I've ever seen.

Hell, the greatest comeback win for that matter.

A great, great game by the New England Patriots.

Brady is the MVP, I'm sure. I would like to see the RB get it, but biased living in Wisconsin! Tough loss for the Falcons being so far ahead but young team they'll be back!

Hopefully this Super Bowl is the fast track to changing the leagues ridiculous OT rules. Falcons wouldn't have scored anyways, but at least they should have gotten the chance.
