    Chiefs - Colts game was only low 30's, high 20's and the Chiefs receivers dropped a bunch of catchable balls. It will be worse in the real cold. Maybe if they utilized somebody more sure handed like Dieter more it would help. Incidentally, the Chiefs coaches are high on him, uncoverable in practice, bla bla bla. Perhaps they should play him more than say, stone-handed Conley.

    Though it could’ve been better, it wasn’t a terrible game for our white Patriots today. Brady was flawless, Burkhead scored a rushing TD, Edelman had 150 yards and looked like a man amongst boys, Gronk blocked well and didn’t get injured, Hogan had a few catches, and John Simon got plenty of snaps on defense.

    Rex’s TD...

    Now they're discussing the phasing out of kick-offs because of safety concerns.

    What a downer.

    But, the second half was anti-climactic anyway.

    The Patriots looked dialed-in for this game, but the Chargers also looked flat after coast-to-coast travel games back to back. Rivers was off all game. Credit to the Pats on both sides of the ball, but the Chargers played poorly.

    Not to quibble but it looked like Hogan had his man beat and had to come back for the ball on that bomb. Then he was open in the end zone and Brady missed him.

    I know KC will be favored next week but I'm picking the Pats unless some notable player is injured in practice. Belichek is a better coach and Brady has no problem going into a hostile environment. I even see Gronk getting some key catches. NE all the way. Not easy but convincing.

    They flashed Anzalone up on the screen when he was at the LOS. The CB gave up on covering Matthews on that TD play and they zoom in on the white player who was 40 yards away.

    In the earlier game, when Dorsett badly beat a Chargers DB for a touchdown, Joey Bosa was made the visual perp. There's never any deviating from the anti-White narrative, though most viewers likely never even notice this particular propaganda technique.

    Foles and the Eagles have quieted that Superdome crowd down, big time. What a start!

    Credit due, Alshon Jeffery has made two key catches from Foles in key situations. Good throws as well.

    Taysom Hill with 2 runs for 8 yards, including a nice fake punt conversion.

    Damn Taysom Hill was wide open on the bomb and then Brees underthrew him. Should have been a TD.

    And then Hill gets put in at QB and throws a 50 yard TD to Kamara, and it is called back for holding!!!

    This Eagle's Secondary is allowing completion after completion. Zone coverage all day guarantees a loss...

    I hope Foles goes somewhere worthwhile and we can cheer for. He deserves a good team. Dallas would be nice. Prescott would be sent packing. Very unlikely though.

    With the Eagles eliminated, I’ll definitely be hoping for a Pats-Saints SB. Without Kupp, the Rams have very little value aside from Goff and their 4/5-White OL.

    The Pats have been horrendous in road games this year and I’d say the Chiefs should be favored next week. Of course, the Pats have a chance, as they have #12 and Andy “Porky Pig / Fat Bastard” Reid’s playoff blunders are long-standing. If the Chiefs prevail and advance to the SB, at least their #1 receiver is Travis Kelce.

    There is only one black QB left (Mahomes) in the final four teams, which can be viewed as a victory.

    It would be beyond amazing to see Tom/Bill advance to their 9th SB, let alone get their 6th ring. Sure, the team isn’t as white as they’ve been in years past, but with Brady, Gronk, Edelman, Hogan, Burkhead, Develin, Andrews, Thuney, and John Simon on defense, they are clearly our best hope to showcase white athletic prowess in the biggest stage.

    Edelman’s highlights against the all-cocoa Charger secondary. With 150 yards, he become the second leading receiver in NFL playoff history (Jerry Rice is #1)...

    I noticed both these egregious anti-white examples and thought, only the guys at CF will be aware of what's going on.

    I did learn that Patrick Mahomes is the greatest Qb ever and has already been selected for the HOF. Was the Mahomes hype a little over the top?? Wait until next week. And if his team wins against Brady.....

    I thought the TV camera guy would always invariably focus in on the White guy because the White guy would inevitably have a calm, dignified Southern-colonel-in-defeat countenance, whereas the viewer at home and on the bleachers thought all the other dudes looked the same *snicker* (with their middle school girl histrionics). There's probably a bit of latent racism there, as if the common viewer EXPECTS childish chimpouts from the Black players as a given but wants to see the reaction of the person "in charge."

    Sort of like when the superintendent bursts into a wild classroom; he or she isn't mad at the kids, he's pissed at the teacher who's tied up behind her desk.

    8 straight final 4 appearances seems almost unfathomable in a violent sport like football, couple that with the salary cap which is supposed to break up dynasty type teams because of the salary demands of the super stars.

    I still don't think these Pat teams are as good as the original gang in 2001 to 2005 or so. The offense is clearly better but the defense is threadbare and has no clear stars like the first group of players had.

    4 out of 5 years in the SB would be outstanding considering the reasons I stated before. It will be tough to win in KC, but Mahomes is inexperienced and could crack up in a tight game. I did notice Fat Bastard didn't punt in a long field goal situation, even though they failed on the 4th down gamble, that's a new twist for Fat Bastard, he must be feeling it.....

    That miracle in Miami game looms large right now. If the Pats hold on for the win there, they’d be hosting the championship game next week and would be clear favorites at home.

    Their post season track record and consistency is without parallel in any sport, and yes, very impressive especially doing it in the NFL which is designed to promote parity. Unfortunately, that also includes a rather poor record on the road in the playoffs. The defense, and particularly the secondary is a major weakness and someone like Mahomes, along with weapons like Kelce and Hill can take them apart.

    Tom Brady has to play one of his best games and basically outscore Mahomes to win this one. He cannot leave anything in the hands of that defense, otherwise it’ll be like the Super Bowl last year.
