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.
