    Been dealing with an ice storm. Chopping ice and shoveling. At least it kept me home all day yesterday so I caught the entire Saints-Rams fiasco.

    Talk above and elsewhere in the media about changing the overtime rules. They were "upset" Mahomes didn't get another shot at the Swiss cheese clueless Patriots defensive backfield.

    I am so old fashioned I don't even compute in the modern world. I want to see them go back to the old days where the first team to score wins the game. One of the off shoots of modern day football is putting underwear Olympic black football players on defense instead of good old fashioned tough guys who take pride in actually tackling somebody. Of course the Patriots are an inverse old fashioned team. Their defense follows the caste trend of an all black defense that pretty much stinks especially the DBs. Their offense though is heavily white and tough like defenses used to be (1960's) and carry more than the load as they move onto yet another Super Bowl.

    Refs have been screwing up interference plays like crazy and of course in the Saints game they picked the absolute worst time to ignore a blatant interference, something most black cornerbacks do on half the plays these days. Keep in mind they blew another interference call at a key juncture where Ted Ginn got whacked before the ball but was ignored. I have a theory. If they called interference properly these so called elite black cornerbacks would be flagged 75% of the time. So in order to give them a pass the refs pick their spots.

    Now on that last interference call their also was helmet to helmet contact but somehow that was ignored.

    Yet there was a call earlier in the game that is receiving no pub. Just like TE Kelce last year in the playoffs, Saints starting TE Josh Hill was skulled. They explained that the refs ordered Hill to go into concussion protocol. Fine right thing to do I am all for player safety especially head/spine stuff. But where was the 15 yard stinking penalty? Buck/Aikman didn't bring it up and just like the Kelce play no flag and No one questioned it. What is this open field on smacking white skill player's skulls with no consequences?

    While the Saints pretty much had the game won before the ref fell asleep, they looked half ass to me once again. Remember they could have easily lost last week to the Eagles. The Saints lost their mojo towards the end of the season and never recaptured their mid season magic.

    I have absolutely no use for the Rams who without Kupp are your standard 3 x 5 caste team at least from my perspective. And they have DT Suh who is despicable.

    I don't have much to add to the stirring Patriots win since it has been covered so well up above. Yes I have noticed in general the media was upset. Like mentioned above the media wanted the Mahomes "taking over the NFL" theme to prevail. Again a bit like the Saints, the Chiefs slid a bit towards the end of the season. And that includes Mahomes. Granted he rallied in the second half but taken as a whole Mahomes was ordinary for much of the game. He did have to deal with a pass rush but the media has been force feeding us this guy all season and while he can dazzle I am still not sold on the 'whole package." Is he better than I expected? Sure. But bottom line is they ended up where they almost used to with the much maligned Alex Smith.

    Nice to see Burkhead, the Patriots most versatile RB make big plays and of course ho hum the white receiving core once again came up aces. All we heard most of the season is the Patriots lack star wide receivers. Then they added the "real athlete" Josh Gordon and the offense sputtered. Luckily Gordon left the team.

    Some "key insiders" figured the black Olympic underwear front seven defense would destroy the Patriots. Instead they got mauled and pushed around like rag dolls. Chiefs LB Ragland might as well get a Develin tattoo. Develin drove him ten yards on every key block.

    Old fashioned white oriented offense mauls cutesy combine hero type black defenders. Except for S Daniel Sorensen, see above posts, who was playing an A + game until late. Final grade I give an A. Far better than "savior" Eric Berry who gave up two massive plays to Gronkowski.
    Sorensen was the only Chiefs defender who played well. And this has been the theme on their past three post season games.

    But he stinks according to the fan sites, local media pricks and NFL experts who figure only blacks should play DB, neglecting the obvious fact most of them stink to high heaven.

    And of course the Patriots receivers lack "athletic dazzle and talent" according to the post game pissed off media mop up reports. Eat it raw suckers. Notice all the armchair coaches complaining about the way defenses play against the likes of Edelman. If Edelman was black the discussion would revolve around his "greatness." Guess what? He is. And I guess the coffin makers can put off the one labeled Tom Brady.

    You mentioned Burkhead’s personal life in this post and I wanted to let you know that Burkhead and his wife (Danielle) welcomed their first child (a son named “Jett”) about 2 months ago! A great year for Rex...

    I still laugh at mudshark......
    This country has no pride.....No self value....
    It’s ok for every other ethnic group, religious group or race to be proud of their heritage except for whites.....Most of us hated white girls dating blacks when we were young....Nothing has changed....Now, we are ******* racists......Black chicks dislike black men that date (mostly) fat gross white girls......Are they not racist????.....Of course not.

    Fat Bastard found a more creative way to lose than last years deflection pass to myself loss to the Titans.

    He wanted this one badly but the superior Patriots veteran offense just made plays when they had to. Brady truly has ice in his veins. Gronk woke up from his slumber and was clutch down the stretch and didn't need any ticky tacky flags(which could have been called on some of his big catch and run plays).

    PS the Rams are a marginal betting favorite of 1 point in the SB, it doesn't make any sense when you see how clutch the Patriots offense is. I could see this game being close or I could see a blowout for the Patriots, but I can't see it being a blowout for the Rams.

    I could see a Rams blowout if the Patriots' coal-black defense falls behind early and keeps letting the Rams march down the field.

    The Rams offense hasn't been the same since Kupp went down. Hopefully the Patriots will methodically move the ball down the field the way they did against KC and eat up a lot of time doing it.

    It would be a shame if New England loses back to back Super Bowls, especially after the Eagles proved to be pretty much a one year wonder. You have to figure there's a decent chance of this being Brady's last hurrah.

    As has been the case for much of Brady's career, he and the offense succeed despite of the general incompetence of the defense. It's nauseating how that worthless corps of defensive players gets to basically coattail on the success of the tough White men on the Patriots year after year, getting rings in the past and, potentially, another ring here despite being dead weight in only a slightly hyperbolic sense.

    Was Abdullah the kind of black underwear olympics winner who could not break a tackle, but which still excites the usual caste gimps? That kind of black player is what opened my eyes to the joke of a caste system way back in the 80s where my buddies HS team had a "winner" go to Kansas where even they realized he was not a RB. It seems though that Abdullah the "winner" at least got a rookie contract.

    Does anyone else see a resemblance to Belichik in that picture at the beginning of the video? Similar to how married people come to resemble each other?

    Irrelevant observation of the day.

    Immediately after that AFC Championship game concluded, Brady embraced Chris Hogan and says: “I’m too old. You’re too slow. We got no skill players. We’ve got no defense. We’ve got nothing. Love you, man.”



    Like Gronk, the Super Bowl could be Hogan’s final game with NE due to his impending free agency. I’m hoping for a really great game on his part and I think he’ll do his race proud on his quest for a 2nd ring.

    If Edelman has another great game and the Pats manage to win, it’ll be his 3rd SB victory as the #1 WR. Legendary stuff.

    Indeed, but he was considered White on this site for over 3 years, going back to his days at BYU and then a portion of his NFL career. That needs to be kept in mind.

    I watched him at BYU (where he was an undeniably good player, although Sorensen was clearly better, yet went undrafted), looked him up, and knew he was mixed. Given that he was a 2nd round pick in 2014, I think the average CF poster perceived him to be non-white shortly thereafter.

    Van Noy played his first three seasons with the Lions, then the last three seasons with the Patriots. During that time there was plenty of posts about Detroit's defense being barren of Whites most years, even as backups. Same with the Patriots other than Ninkovich when he was still playing, WSTD Ebner, and a few backups like Shea McClellin that have come and gone. It's easy to see how someone watching a game on TV could think Van Noy is White, as there are a fair amount of light-skinned non-Whites in the NFL, but any close-up of his facial features and hair instantly shows that he isn't.

    Excellent! Brady can be very diplomatic with the media, but he "knows the score".

    Don,

    I went down 'memory lane' looking at a number of things via the search mechanism, mostly those who've come and gone in college football. I could have swore that in at least one BYU write-up, Van Noy (with his Euro-ish name) was listed as a White starter. Apparently not. My mistake.

    Thrashen,

    Yes. You summed it up. He received some praise in the Weekly college games thread, including as a sophomore/junior, when he made a nice INT and return.

    Deadlift, when you wrote that Van Noy "was considered White on this site for over 3 years," I interpreted it as meaning there had been a longstanding consensus (for 3 years) among posters that he was White and that was different than my memory of discussions about him. No biggie either way, glad you're back here posting again.

    That locker room scene after winning against KC showed that the team is tight and truly a team, where every member is valued, everyone has a job to do. As BB says, "Just do your job." It was great to see.

    Sights and sounds from the Patriots sideline during the game. Also includes Patriots play-by-play radio broadcast. Great video:

    I know some guys don't like Cowherd but props to him for this story and especially the way he reports it. Makes me wonder if he'll be taken to the Principal's office and given a talkin' to...

    Colin's comments on the media are correct and extend far beyond sports. They do the same thing on politics and racial crime. Colin is getting dangerously close to the truth especially if he were to mention a certain tribe that owns all of the major media conglomerates.
