My thoughts on Super Bowl LII

Super Bowl LII

What a game. Here are my quick thoughts on Super Bowl LII:

  • This very well may have been the greatest football game ever played. The most yards of any game in NFL history, and very few mistakes. The two turnovers were just fantastic defensive plays. Plus the replays didn’t overturn the calls on the field. It was about as good as a game as you could ask for.
  • Tom Brady in defeat cemented his position as the greatest quarterback ever. He threw for over 500 yards in a Super Bowl. That is nuts, given that through the first 33 Super Bowls, no one had thrown for more than 400.
  • Aaron Rodgers completes that Hail Mary at the end of the game, though. I just know he would.
  • The Patriots now have 5 Super Bowl wins and 5 Super Bowl losses. The latter ties a record with the Denver Broncos.
  • The NFC East is the first division to get all four teams to win a Super Bowl. The former NFC East, with the Cardinals included, still wouldn’t get that honor, however.
  • This is the new NFL. Pass on every play, and just keep scoring and scoring. Don’t be surprised if next year these records from this game end up being shattered yet again.
  • My money’s on New England winning Super Bowl LIII.

  1. The super bowl was definitely great this year and Nick Files did far better than people thought he would. I wouldn’t peg the patriots to win the next Superbowl because Brady could fall off come next season, similar to the way Peyton Manning did in his last year.


  2. You nailed it—the game was so smooth because of the lack of turnovers, relatively small number of penalties, and the refs playing as small a part as possible. And I agree about Rodgers—in fact, it annoyed me pretty well that everyone has been saying how incredible Brady is in the 4th quarter. Historically, he’s not a great 4th quarter QB—he’s relatively human and no better (except in recent years) than other top QB’s in the game, and certainly not even close to Rodgers, who is possibly the greatest 4th quarter QB ever.
