One of the dumbest things I’ve heard in sports was said several years ago. The New England Patriots were rolling to another inevitable Super Bowl appearance as Tom Brady was carving up defenses. Then Rob Gronkowski got hurt, and people naturally wondered what impact that would have on the Patriots offense. I was stunned at the time when many so-called experts said the Patriots could easily overcome that loss and continue to dominate. Of course the opposite happened and the Patriots were on their couches for the Super Bowl.
There are tons of storylines in this years Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks, and some of them actually involve players as opposed to air pressure in footballs. Plenty of attention will be on the quarterbacks of course, but there’s so much more to this game beyond Tom Brady versus Russell Wilson.
As you can see in the video above, the Richard Sherman versus Darrelle Revis debate has been out there for a while, and now their teams are matched up for the title. Sherman has been the most vocal, as he’s parlaying his obnoxious personality into endorsement gold. Sherman loves to brag and run his mouth, but he’s also an excellent player on a defense that is looking to go down in history like the No Name Defense and the Steel Curtain as defenses that could win back-to-back Super Bowls.
We’re looking at one of the best Super Bowl matchups in years, and yet for the past two weeks everyone has been consumed by the ridiculous scandal now know as “deflategate.” The NFL discovered that footballs used by the New England Patriots were deflated in the first half of their blowout of the Indianapolis Colts, and then all hell broke lose when this was leaked to the media.
There are legitimate arguments on both sides as to the severity of this so-called “scandal” and I frankly don’t have a strong opinion either way. I don’t know what happened, and I don’t care much either. Of course Patriot haters are going crazy, while Patriot fans are stuck defending Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the entire Patriot dynasty.
The NFL gets a classic matchup for the Super Bowl after the Green Bay Packers completed one of the most incredible choke jobs in NFL history. New England won the later game, so either the Packers or the Seahawks would have set up a great Super Bowl pairing, but it’s the Seahawks who prevailed for the chance to win back-to-back Super Bowls against a team looking to cement their dynasty status.
