Your tired of Boston teams winning titles. You’re tired of Brady and Belichick. I get it. But anytime my football team comes back from 25 down to win a Super Bowl, we have to bang out at least one mailbag, right?

First question, 10th most important coin flip of all time, and it literally had no impact on the outcome because the 2nd person was the one to do it. C'mon Bill, step up.

"The Bears panicked and called heads." OK.

That was not very interesting reading, other than the fact that I enjoy reading anything whose central topic is "The Patriots won the Super Bowl."

HA! I read that and didn't even realize how horrible it sounded. Good catch, counselor.

That column and the hack who wrote it is putrid. I find it hilarious that mr. Comedy writer/Mr NBA countdown/Mr HBO has to basically go back to his original ways to have anyone give a shit about him. And his column is nothing but sycophants

I skimmed it.

Q: A few years ago you wrote that Jay Z was 39 years old, had all the money in the world, a ton of no. 1s, married to the hottest chick in the game, and was already in the conversation for greatest of all time … And THEN he released “Empire State of Mind.” SB51 is Brady’s Newwwww Yoooooork, right?
— Chris, Medford, Mass.

BS: Now I’m worried about Brady’s version of Tidal and Lemonade.


What in the fuck does that even mean? That is one of Jay Z's biggest hits.

This column sucked. Like usual.

Exactly. Comparing the Patriots title to Rocky IV, extended discussion of the "Levels of Losing", email saying that being a Patriots fan is like being a Yankees fan, referencing Monster's Ball? What year was this fucking thing written?

Nicklaus won the ’86 Masters by shooting a 65 on the final round; Brady basically shot a 62 on Sunday and went 10-under on the back nine.

Sure, you might consider Revolver to be the greatest album of all time, but Mark Sanchez basically had a better album than Revolver when he banged Kate Upton. My methodology is flawless!

One additional note: I can’t remember an NFL team losing a playoff game that could have flipped on more individual plays. Once Atlanta took that 25-point lead, had any one of NINETEEN different plays gone differently (not counting Matt Ryan’s failure to kill more clock just by delaying the snap on multiple Atlanta plays), the Falcons might have won the Super Bowl:
Amendola’s fourth-and-3 catch; Brady’s 15-yard third-down scramble; three post-onside-kick plays when Atlanta had second-and-1 from New England’s 32 and went backward (holding, dropped pass, sack, along with a wasted timeout); a 25-yard Bennett catch on third-and-1 (set up a field goal to make it 28–12); Atlanta blowing second-and-2 and losing the ball (Coleman stuffed, then the Hightower strip sack); Mitchell’s first-down catch on third-and-11; White’s two-point conversion; Roberts’s game-saving chase-down tackle on Freeman’s 39-yard screen pass; Atlanta blowing the chance at the clinching field goal on New England’s 22 (Freeman stuffed for minus-1, Ryan sack, holding, deadly incomplete pass to stop the clock); Brady’s third-and-10 pass from New England’s 9 to a double-covered Hogan for 16 (his best throw); the Incredelman; Amendola’s two-point conversion; the coin flip; and, finally, the ill-advised first-and-goal pass to Bennett that Atlanta could have picked off. Nineteen plays!


I feel like Hank Hill.
