    Tony Romo during the final drive: “I’m surprised the Patriots made it this far without an outside receiver.”

    Haha, they don’t need a black diva, Tony. They have “nobody” white WR’s who no black DB’s can ever seem to cover.

    Julian Edelman is the best playoff WR of the last 25 years and it’s not even close. Those 3rd down conversions were the stuff of legend. Wow, what a player!

    One of the most emotionally satisfying wins of all time.

    All the plays in overtime were made by white players - the black receivers couldn't get to the ball or just flat out dropped it each time they were thrown to.

    Nothing but drops by black pat's players when it mattered most. Nothing but clutch from the honkies to cap it off. Hope the coaches take note.

    They know Julian Edelman his a Future Hall of Famer! $Money in the Bank! What a Catch by Hogan! CLUTCH! Gronk was still Gronk too!

    Love em or hate em' ...Tom Brady still the Best QB. Savage!

    To think Ex Nebraska coach Bo Pellini had to defend starting Rex Burkhead in College to the DWF's/media ..."He's a better athlete than you think; he can throw down a Slam Dunk at 5'-11""

    Daniel Sorenson(14 TACKLES ; INT & Pass Deflection) was Boss in the Secondary. I give Mahomes credit...that last drive was nice. Travis Kelce had a TD should have been thrown to more!

    Saints truly got hosed...WORST NO CALL in the HISTORY of the Playoffs co$t them a trip to Super Bowl. Taysom Hill=Swiss Army Knife. Sorry Cooper Kupp is injured

    Man, what a game. One of the best. So glad NE stormed back with the GOAT and his white playmakers. So satisfying.

    Boomer Esiason mentioned after the game that Edelman “should be considered for the Hall of Fame.” It was a very nice remark and he’s always been complimentary of the NE white WR’s.

    The media had themselves convinced KC was going to be a sb champion because of their gadget offense. They forgot it was belichek who stopped the Rams high scoring offense at SB 36. You can never bet against goats in brady and belichek.

    Yeah, I’d really like to see the replays of his multiple 3rd-and-10 conversions on the final drive. Like last week against the Chargers, Edelmam was a man among black boys tonight. That INT that bounced off of his hands was a high throw, but catchable. I can’t wait to see how the former Kent State QB (and 7th round pick) does in the SB.

    What a game! The Pat's reaffirm their place as CF's favorite team by utilizing a bunch of white players to earn the win. Burkhead was awesome. Belichick was smart how he used his backs. Michael ran well early and Burkhead came in with fresh legs and did the job.

    Now find some pale faces for the defense. So Brady doesn't have to outscore the other team every game.

    And thanks to the coin flip because that's a big reason they won.

    Yes, an incredibly satisfying win. I had almost given up when KC charged right down the field with 32 seconds left. This is almost as satisfying as the SB wins over Seattle and Atlanta. But not quite.

    What tough, clutch, epic performances by Brady, Edelman, Gronk, Burkhead, and Hogan. The stuff of legend. The misery of the putrid DWFs and racist non-whites must be awful right now. Good. I hope they wallow in it for a long, long time.

    The refs let the KC defenders hang all over the Patriot receivers every play, but I don't think they got a single PI all game. Yet NE rose up and overcame it.

    Now we get a Patriots - Rams Super Bowl. Its too bad Kupp is out, but with Brady vs. Goff, this is one of the best matchups we could have hoped for.

    Yeah, if the Pats go on to win SB 53, you have to wonder what might’ve happened if the Chiefs had won that coin toss. Instead, Brady advances to play in his 9th SB game. He’s 5-3 in SB games and it’d awesome to see him add to his legacy as the most greatest accomplished athlete in American sports history.

    Didn't realize Sorensen had an amazing 14 tackles to go along with his pick as mentioned by 22 above, but he was noticeable all over the field. And he gets very little respect, which goes with the territory of being a starting White safety. You can bet even after this monster game on national TV there'll be a lot of discussion during the offseason about the need to "upgrade" his position.

    Can't say enough about Edelman, just a tremendous player. Brady too was super-clutch, making so many nice throws; his only mistake was throwing at all to hands of stone receivers Dorsett and Patterson.

    And have to give the Patriot's majority sumo o-line credit. All five played a tremendous game giving Tom enough time to throw.

    It was a great compliment......and I was totally surprised by it. I think you have to consider Welker first......his stats are staggering compared to Jules......but Edelman has more memorable/clutch plays in big games that people remember

    Very proud of how Rex finished.....Most of his earlier carries were predictable and got minimal yardage.....Had a few nice 10-15 yard runs.....Like Zenner, he’d get his 100, several times a year if given the ball enough......Did I read an earlier post saying there are only 12 of us on here posting????.....Way more people feel the same as us....I’ve told a few friends.....

    Belicheck is a very good tactician and laid a template for how to play defense against the Chiefs. The defense put together a strong first half before the deficiencies in personnel started to show. I thought it was interesting that Romo mentioned late in the game that Mahomes was not able to call different plays and adjust to the Pats scheme since he was a young QB. I would figure audibles are something that most QBs would have the ability to call.

    I am pulling for the Pats in the Super Bowl. I think Gronk is going to retire so I want to see him go out a winner.

    The one thing I still can’t understand is why he kept throwing to Patterson? He is a bust as a receiver, but a good return man and screen player.

    I know two ESPN Jews (Max Kellerman and Nick Wright) in particular who must feel like slitting their wrists right now.

    On two occasions during the broadcast, Tony Romo mentioned that the Pats lack “outside” (black) WR talent. How many championships did Romo win with “Diva Dez” Bryant as his #1 receiver? Meanwhile, Edelman, Amendola, Hogan, and Welker got Brady to numerous SB’s.

    Patterson doesn't even look fast anymore, he's become more of a tall, lumbering type that has very little to offer, much like Josh Gordon during his stint with New England. Hopefully the GOAT and Belichick both return next year and hopefully the team will develop at least one new Edelman or Hogan. I'd love to see Chad Hansen get an opportunity. Braxton Berrios is another possibility. I believe Hogan is a free agent after the season and likely won't have much of a market given his lack of melanin and diminished stats this year.

    Mahomes is a product of that system. Fat bastard pacifies him. Pats took away Hill and Kelce away most of the game and Fat Bastard had to rely on gadget plays and phantom PI calls for him to move the ball across the field. I will never understand the hype. I was far more impressed with what Josh Allen was able to do on a team lacking talent on offense.

    Hogan led the NFL in yards per reception just two seasons ago, but that inconvenient fact quickly was deposited down the Memory Hole. Don't understand if there was some kind of rift between he and Brady this year, but I watched Hogan a lot this season and there were many times when he was open deep and everywhere else on the field. . .
