    What, no Super Bowl talk?

    A great defensive battle! Maybe boring to some, but talk about a great physical battle - old time football - and not really boring when you consider the game was not really over until the last seconds. I'm a Patriot's fan, and I know how lucky I am to live in MA (regarding sports teams, anyway).

    Great article by ESPN summarizing the Patriot's dynasty and the magic of Belichick/Brady. So many different players over the years around Brady, so many adjustments to make for each game.

    We will simply never see this kind of long-term greatness again.

    Agree and even the most biased Tennessee and Peyton Manning fan (of which I am one) have to admit, Tom Brady's accomplishments will, most likely, never be equalled in our life time. Simply put, "B Squared" are the best.

    Have to agree with you Walrus. It's year in and year out excellence, can't deny it. If my Vikings could just win one, I could die a happy man.

    What about Y. A. tittle? He was a long term great as well, and didn't have all that protective equipment either.

    I too enjoyed the defensive battle.

    I live in southwestern CT where the population is split between NY and Boston team loyalties. Me, I'm a long-suffering Jets fan so I am tired of the Pats dominating our division. That said, hats off to them; Bellicheck and Brady are both the best at what they do and they work together hand in glove.

    I was disappointed in the Superbowl ads. Nothing that great I thought.

    I loved this game. I think defensive football is highly entertaining. I'll be the 1st to admit I'm not really a Pats fan but I wish for once in my life I could be as dominant at something (anything actually) as Brady and the Pats are. He's in great shape and looks like he could play until he's 50.
