    I don't watch the NFL much, I haven't since I started college. I suppose it worked out that way because Saturday was spent attending or watching college football games and partying, and I needed to recover on Sunday morning and get work done the rest of the day.

    The game is being played in Atlanta again this year and is generating a lot of noise. UGA has former running backs on both teams, and the young LA coach is from Atlanta. So there is a number of obvious storylines already developing. I am interested in this one because Gurley and Michel were teammates on my team and are both prominent NFL backs. I have not watched the SB the last couple of years, but will probably watch this one.

    Will McVay be the youngest HC to win a Super Bowl if the Rams pull it off?

    Having two former UGA running backs featured in the SB should be good for recruiting RB's to Georgia, but I believe the author of this article may be getting ahead of himself a bit.

    The Pats will play possum and look out of sorts for any where between one quarter and one half, spotting the Rams between 17 and 21 points. Then the Pats will come roaring back and win. People will compare it to the SB against Atlanta 2 years ago. Brady will thank his wife on the victory podium. Bill will remain taciturn. Kraft will be effusive and somewhat confused, causing one to question whether he's slightly demented or more than slightly hammered. The end.

    On the following Monday Brady will announce that not only will he be returning next year, he will plan to play until his son is old enough to join the Pats, thus establishing a dynasty not seen since the pharaohs of ancient Egypt.

    I don't do storylines for sports. It's just a way to try to keep my eyeballs.

    The Nepotism storyline! Classic. Hey, that's only like 8 years away... Brady would be 49? By that time maybe the NFL will have QBs wearing bubble wrap suits. If he stays healthy he could literally hand it off to his own progeny!

    But who would be the NFL's Moses to lead the Lombardi's out of Foxborough?

    The refs from the Rams, Saints game on their way to the Super Bowl to volunteer their services should the Rams require them to officiate.

    If the Rams defense plays up to their ability and get to Brady early and often, the Rams will prevail. Brady can't stand that and will lose his cool. I'm so tired of the Patriots and Brady, never cared for him when he was at Michigan either.

    Dear Rams defense,

    Please smack that sucker silly.

    Thank you. :D

    If Brady stays upright, we all know the outcome.

    The Pats will prevail, providing the Rams official's clown car doesn't get there in time to officiate. Fate is trying its best to give Brady his sixth ring and secure for all time his undisputed place in the annals of Football history.

    The Pats will have a 14 point lead at half-time, but the Rams will adjust and tie it up early in the 4th. Gronk will get hurt late in the 3rd. The Rams will go ahead on a field goal late in the 4th, and Brady will throw interceptions on back-to-back drives and give the Rams the ball with less than 30 seconds left. They will take a knee and win the Super Bowl.

    Now, back to reality. The New England Patriots, led by the greatest quarterback in the history of football, will win in a blowout.

    In annals of history, no matter how many rings, will forever be the taint of the asterisks, though unofficial, but to many NFL fans will always be a part of the legacy.

    And yes, that means the cheating they were caught, and I'm sure the more prevalent ones we don't know about.

    Just as Bonds isn't considered the greatest home run hitter, despite holding the record, because of the taint of steroids

    This one coming up is Super Bowl 53. Last year was 52 and the most glorious one yet!

    • Pats win
    • Close, down to the final seconds, as usual
    • ALL of my hair and fingernails will be gone
    • At one point in the final seconds, I will suffer a heart attack and a stroke, simultaneously
    • On the podium, Brady retires
    • On the podium, Belichick retires
    • On the podium, Gronk retires
    • Josh McDaniel is announced as Head Coach at the duck boat parade.
    God, imagine if ANY of that turns out to be true? (Knocking furiously on wood).

    The game will be played until it's over and the guacamole turns brown.

    Brady, despite his tantrum yoga training, will leave the field riding backwards on a golf cart, after Suh rolls over the back of Brady's left leg, with 2:13 left in the first half.

    A squadron of hometown Coke fanatics will interrupt the portion of the Pepsi halftime show featuring Kylie Jenner's boy toy by building a wall with Mexican Coke.

    Rams win 27-24.

    The game will be close for the first half. The half-time show will be so bad that the players and
    audience gets rude and angry. The officials will call the game due to violence in the stands and
    on the field. ;)

    My suggestion was that the Saints and Chiefs should play tomorrow in the Super-Screwed Bowl and have a halftime act that folks would actually enjoy. Guess they didn't listen though.

    Still, being an LA Rams fan since I was a kid, I do hope they beat the Cheaters From New England!
