NFL 2016 Pick'em League!
RE: NFL 2016 Pick'em League!
Just a friendly reminder that 4 days ago Tom Brady led the Patriots back from a 25 point deficit late in the 3rd quarter to win his 5th Super Bowl.

I think this is technically only his first Superbowl Victory not shrouded in ball deflation scandal though.  Rolleyes

Eta: I could be wrong. I'm probably wrong. I just have a heavy prejudice against cheaters.

Dead wrong.  The actions of a finite being measured against an infinite one are infinitesimal and therefore merit infinitesimal punishment.

I say again:  No exceptions.  Punishment should be equal to the crime, not in excess of it.  As soon as punishment > crime, the punisher is in the wrong.

Pretty sure he won one in 2001, 2003, and 2004 without scandals.

They didn't win the Super Bowl with SpyGate, so that makes no sense. Tongue

It seems to be some weird tradition with Super Bowl rings to make them look as "bling" as possible: http://www.nfl.com/photos/09000d5d82618287

OMG, I'm so sick of seeing this Falcons choked shit. They didn't choke, and this is in defense of them, not the Pats. They played really well up until the fourth quarter where they played pretty well. The Pats couldn't budge in the first half and most of the third quarter because the Falcons were executing every play (and taking every opportunity) perfectly. The same happened with the Pats in the fourth quarter. Even the best teams can't get any room to score when the other team is that on point. That's not choking. It's just not scoring, which they came very close to doing again. I can't understand how that's choking. Give the team a little credit. They were fucking phenomenal.

The tuck rule would have applied to any team. It was a rule. Therefore, he played regulation football and won. Eli Manning made it to the Super Bowl with his teams. He's clearly not as shit as people want to believe. Yeah, Vinatieri fucking killed. If I remember correctly, he played for the Patriots and has his own ring to show for that win, right? The same goes for Malcolm Butler. Spygate had nothing at all to do with the Super Bowl, which was the only case of any actual wrongdoing (read: common practice by many teams) that anyone has ever proven. To those who think the Pats are "cheaters" because of deflategate, it was never fucking proven. Moreover, it has happened to numerous teams since then who did not see any reprimand from the NFL. If I go outside right now and fetch my football out of our deck box, I guaranfuckingtee it will be lighter because of the cold. And another thing, we fucking murdered this season under the most intense scrutiny any team in the NFL has every been subjected to, in my opinion. So suck a wet fart. Tongue
