    Just a guess really. Like you said, he's getting older and one final SB win might do it for him.

    Did you miss the 2 penalties that got KC down the field to take the lead? Or was it tie the game?

    Yea, a hold Pi, good call. There was also a low hit on the QB on the same play. Big difference between them and a phantom roughing because your hand got too close to Brady.

    Would have been 3rd and 7 from the 28. Got a first down on the 43 on an absolute blown call.

    Does anyone else hate the NFL’s rule for overtime? It sucks that a flip of the coin gives one team a chance to win the game with a touchdown and the other team doesn’t even get a shot with the ball. I would much rather see a system like college has for overtime.

    Same reason I hit your mom, and she's never disappointed either.

    They should have a best 3-of-5 coin toss to decide the winner if time and player safety are too big of issues to ensure both teams a possession.

    KC likely wouldn't have been down and having to tie or retake lead without that BS call.

    Brady and Belichick will get another Super Bowl win, then enjoy another season together and perhaps another title. Brady will retire. Belichick will go 0-16 in the fall of ‘20. He will draft Trevor Lawrence, coach 20 more years and win ten more Super Bowls.

    Did you see the spiderpussy in off topic? I bet that would hurt.

    Brady's said he wants to play at least a couple more years. I don't see why winning another Super Bowl would change that -- if anything, it would just cement it.

    He may have said he's tired, but he sure didn't look it, either on the field or in the interview.

    Now Gronk looks like he's done. Can't imagine him playing another season. His body language is pure pain.

    Yeah, I'd be shocked if Brady hung it up after this year regardless of the result in two weeks. I could see it after next year, but my guess is he'll play through 2020.

    Also, can we talk about how great Romo is in the booth? He's probably the only announcer I actually learn stuff from, and his ability to tell viewers what to watch for before the snap on that last drive was almost eery.

    Yeah, this appears to be universal consensus. I've heard some people (maybe jealous rivals) wonder how he'll do when his knowledge base is a decade old.

    Agree about Gronk, but actually I thought Brady looked weak... until you see him throw those perfect spirals.

    Then again, he's looked timid in the pocket (IMHO) for about 5 years now. Hasn't seemed to affect his W-L.

    I find Romo's voice kinda annoying, but he does provide better actual play analysis than any other commentator I can think of.

    Yeah I've heard the same thing, but I don't buy it. I think the types of things he's talking about are relatively basic for people who are experts on football, and I bet he could keep his knowledge current enough to keep doing it.

    I also love how you can tell he's genuinely excited to be there and having fun, but not (in my opinion) overdoing it. He and Nantz are perfect for each other.

    He definitely made mistakes and wasn't exactly slinging it downfield, but he also got it done when needed on those last two drives. He may not be the best QB in the game from a pure skill/physical ability standpoint anymore, but like you said, he's still winning.
