Tough loss for my Chiefs definitely made tougher by the announcers constant spewing of love for the Patriots/Tom Brady. Everytime Mahomes did anything good it was "Brady-like" and when he did anything bad "he just did something that you'd never see Brady do".

Came down to the coin toss in overtime.

The announcers were disgusting, it was like the Patriots radio team was on the air.

So, anyone give a crap about the Super Bowl this year?

It's the same broadcasters as the Chiefs game last week so it will be filled with praise for the Patriots.  I've seen no backlash from that, just all praise for calling out what Brady was going to do, so I doubt anyone has taken them aside and said to cool it or be more balanced.

Coke has already said they will not be airing commercials during the game, they will do some during pre-game and that's it.  And if last year is any indication there will not be very many commercials worth watching out for.

I'm not sure I'll even bother watching it, I have like zero interest in it this year.

Yeah I'm sick of the Patriots, but I do have this new Vizio 75" HDTV so I'll probably watch the first half but if it looks like a blowout I'll probably turn it off and either go to bed if I have to work the following morning or watch something I have backed up on my computer on the big screen :-\

It's the Super Bowl so I'll end up watching, but yeah, I have less interest than any year in a long, long time and it likely won't have my full attention.
Win or loose I expect the gushing over the Partriots to be sickening. And while I was never a fan of their time in St Louis, I have friends there that were big fans with season tickets and I agree with them that the Rams move back to LA was a big FU to St Louis, so I have a hard time getiing excited about them too.

While there have been performers on Super Bowl halftimes that I've enjoyed, trying to make halftime an event on it's own has risen to ridiculousness and I have no desire to see Maroon 5. Anyone heard of any good interesting alternate halftime shows this year?

Despite a solid defensive game, the Rams fell apart half way through the 4th qtr :-[

Game barely had any of my attention until the 4th quarter.
As much as I hate them, it's pretty amazing what the Patriots have done over the last 15 or so years (so glad I was able to avoid all the hype about it leading up to this game though and didn't turn the game on until right at kick off).
Now here's hoping they start a 15+ year skid.

Eagles will not use the franchise tag on Nick Foles, allowing him to become a free agent.

So they would be dumping Bortles then?  Interesting.
