Super Bowl LII: Final Thoughts

As the “Hail Mary” pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski fell incomplete in the end zone with the game clock showing zeros, football season was officially over. The Philadelphia Eagles had just won their first Super Bowl with a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots.

If you enjoy a lot of offense and little defense then Super Bowl LII was just for you. There was one punt in the whole game. One punt. The Eagles and Patriots combined for a total of 1,151 yards of offense. They scored points like a pinball machine.

Ironically, it was a defensive play – a sack of Tom Brady and his fumble that won it for the Philadelphia Eagles.

I’m a Kansas City Chiefs fan. It was a former Chiefs coach (Doug Pederson) and a former Chiefs backup QB (Nick Foles) for the Eagles that won the Super Bowl. That was something that Andy Reid (former Eagles coach and current Chiefs coach) has never done. The Eagles got rid of Reid because he could not take them to the promise land. Remember that, fellow Chiefs fans.

It’s great for a city to win a big game. Overall it’s probably pretty good for the NFL that a new team won the Super Bowl. The Brady/Belichick haters could not take much more winning from them.

Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the game, the Philly fans decided to burn and destroy things while some were chanting “F–k Tom Brady” in reference to the Patriots quarterback — and “Big d–k Nick” in honor of Philly QB Nick Foles.

Stay classy Philly.
