Update: seems M.I.A has taken the award for dumbest Super Bowl move of all time. Flipping the bird to America, the Super Bowl audience, the NFL and the Super Bowl sponsors is the quickest way to end a dull and mundane career. Congrats on the most spectacular flame out in recent memory.
Morons Unite! - end update
Great Super Bowl! The Patriots and Giants ALWAYS play a great game, keeping it close to the last damn play. Last time we were in Key West, FL and enjoyed the last nail biter. This years was great (I hate blow outs).
But I tell you what, ex-Patriot Chris Collinsworth has posted some of the dumbest commentary of Super Bowl history.
When Patriot Welker dropped the pass late in the game, math wiz Chris noted Welker catches those passes 100 out of 100 times. Except when he drops them … No one is 100% Chris.
But the worst comment was near the end of the game when Collisnworth wisely noted that you want your Hail Mary’s a little closer to the end zone (the Pats were on their 40 something). Yes Chris, it is great to be past the 50 yard line to attempt Hail Marys
And then, when the Giants were off sides, Chris was sure moving to the Patriots 47 yard line was a huge boost. I mean, what a game changer! 5 yards closer - but still on the far side of the 50.
Yes, you typically want your Hail Marys from closer in Chris. Thanks for that gem of football wisdom.
But seriously, congrats to the Patriots and Giants for another well fought game down to the wire. And congratulations to the Giants for going from 7 and 7 to world champions. Cinderella seasons bring hope to every fan in every city.
Well played gentlemen.
Update: MVP is Eli – who was good but not the key. Pierre-Paul, Mannigham or Nicks were better choices for MVP since they made the plays. Eli was good, these guys were the difference.
