Sufficient, there was fully no technique I wasn’t going to post that Onion tweet. To be critical for a 2d, it must serene be reminded that this if truth be told isn’t all about Tom Brady.

@HunterFelt “The fact that he would possibly perhaps perhaps presumably operate it as his age” don’t you imagine age is relative.

Imagine how this can own helped Larry Rooster!

Appropriate. Being rich is vital a superpower.

Patrick Mahomes

Within the wrestle between childhood and expertise, expertise was the determined victory. Despite just a few thrilling moments, Mahomes wasn’t his frequent self and he was the victim of just a few slips by his receivers. Loads of this has to operate with the Tampa Bay defense, clearly, but that you just would possibly perhaps well definitely look that Brady’s silent, methodicaly technique was the variation between the two quarterbacks.

Tom Brady

Tom Brady potentially didn’t need one other ring to solidify his space as the suitable quarterback of all time, but it does quite unheard of silent all arguments for the time being.

@HunterFelt @HunterFelt if other people claim a conspiracy then they ought to admit it was within the earn for Payton Manning with the Broncos

February 8, 2021

The echelon quarterbacks rating calls. Mahomes will be there very quickly, I must mediate.

At this level, on the different hand, it’s starting to if truth be told feel treasure the fault isn’t fully within the officiating for the Chiefs.

Landing (Buccaneers) Chiefs 9-28 Buccaneers

Fournette picks up 4 yards on first down. 2nd & 6. Brady finds Gronk and they join all over all once more, it’s treasure they never spent any time apart.

Edwards-Helaire will get one other 10 yards. 1st and 10 all over all once more, Williams will get 3 yards. 2nd & 7, Mahomes throws to Hardman but Hardman doesn’t grasp up an yards. After an incomplete pass, Kansas City settles for one other self-discipline just and one other three facets. That’s gigantic, but they can’t come up with the cash for to construct answering touchdowns with self-discipline targets.


Birth of the 2d half!

Chiefs 6-21 Buccaneers, 14: 54, 3rd quarter

The Chiefs own the ball out of halftime, which is why they deferred within the major build. The Chiefs initiate on their very have 19 after returning the outlet kick. On 1st & 10, Edwards-Helaire picks up a nice chunk of yardage, 26 of them in all.

The analysts own asked how the Chiefs can rating encourage into this game and their reply, the factual one, is appropriate one discover: Mahomes.

The Weeknd’s efficiency has appropriate added to the paranoid air surrounding this Substantial Bowl, so how about some more conspiracy disclose.

Email from Carve Porritt:

I operate no longer know if there is a conspiracy but if the game was fastened, it would look loads treasure this. No longer appropriate penalties however the inexplicable KC timeouts apparently designed to present Brady time to rating a TD at the cease of the half.

I must serene no longer own any blueprint what I appropriate watched.

And my Buccaneers fan brother assessments in with us at the half here.

Travis Felt

Even as a Bucs fan, I’m no longer stoked about your total flags. And we’re all going to be very silent on the Evan’s ode to soccer flops. @HunterFelt

February 8, 2021

Now that Brady is no longer any longer a Patriot I’m in a position to attain here: the dude will get a ridiculous preference of calls. It’s appropriate how it all works.

Within the period in-between. the Weekend tell now formally has solid “Eyes Extensive Shut” vibes.

The Weeknd is doing a medley here of his hits, including “Can’t Feel My Face.” I own viewed a good deal of Substantial Bowl halftime performances in my life, so I if truth be told feel assured after I state that that here’s the suitable song about doing cocaine that has ever been sung at a Substantial Bowl halftime tell.

Ryan Clark

Bruh!! Right here is either site up for the passing of the torch in a huge comeback by the Chiefs or Tom Brady pushing this Goat convo to this level far from the competition that we don’t even hassle to own it anymore.

February 8, 2021

This quite unheard of sums it up: we’re taking a survey at a extremely consequential half of football here.

We’re at the halftime ceremony already? The time has been flying by.

For the suitable that that you just would possibly perhaps additionally mediate of protection of the Weeknd, you in all probability ought to are attempting the Guardian’s supplemental Substantial Bowl liveblog which covers your total non-football stuff occurring.

Henry C opens up a can of worms:

When Brady wins a Superbowl how many penalties does his team rating in their favour? Are there any conspiracy theories?

Right here’s the diversified aspect of the penalties: the officiating at least appears to be a little bit lopsided which technique it’s time for one in all my favorite things in all of sports activities: conspiracy disclose.

Halftime thoughts

Right here’s the part: the Chiefs are very unheard of in a irascible space here. That’s quite evident. The factual recordsdata is that there would possibly perhaps be no longer any diversified team better built for mounting 2d half comebacks. The Tampa Bay defense is no longer going to limit them to self-discipline targets within the 2d half.

The larger relate here is the penalties, they own given Brady appropriate too many opportunities.

Slay of the major half

Chiefs 6-21 Buccaneers, cease of the major half

And the Chiefs don’t own any time to operate the rest as the major half involves an cease. I’m in a position to’t state I was waiting for this roughly initiate from Tampa Bay.

Are you kidding me? Brady throws one away, it appears to be uncatchable to me but it doesn’t matter. There’s one other defensive pass interference name. Right here is the worst that that you just would possibly perhaps additionally mediate of consequence here for Kansas City: On the Kansas City 1, Brady finds Antonio Brown for the third and presumably closing Tampa Bat touchdown of the half. Additionally, there’s an unsportsmanlike behavior penalty on Matthieu.

Chiefs 6-14 Buccaneers, 0: 13, 2nd quarter

It’s 1st & 10 at the Kansas City 24. Fournette will get the ball and takes to the Kansas City 9. And we have got got a wrestle of the time outs as Tampa Bay and Kansas City give us encourage-to-encourage TOs.


Chiefs 6-14 Buccaneers, 0: 24, 2nd quarter

Tampa Bay’s subsequent possession begins at the Tampa Bay 28. Fournette will get the ball but can’t rating wherever. The Chiefs steal a timeout. Out of that Brad throws to Chris Godwin for an eight-yard create. Chiefs steal one other timeout. On the gain one, Brady throws a prolonged one that’s incomplete but it doesn’t issues. There’s a defensive pass interference name here that can hand them a first down.


Email from Henry C:

10: 55 fumble?

Was that third down formally a fumble? It regarded as despite the fact that it was knocked out of the player’s hands. Can you clarify please.

It’s formally within the box rating as a fumble and a recovery for Tampa Bay.

Chiefs 6-14 Buccaneers, 1: 04, 2nd quarter

Mahomes throws to Hill however the Tampa Bay defense continues to present Hill fits. “The don’t ought to let him beat him,” one in all the announcers says. It’s 2nd and 11 and Mahomes goes to Kelce all once more. Kelce presents his quarterback a factual five yards. Now it’s 3rd and 6 and Mahomes tries to circulate deep all once more but it’s vacation space nowhere. They’ll resolve for one other self-discipline just, which ends being factual. Parts are gigantic, they beat nothing, but this feels treasure a massive squandered opportunity for KC.
