Quick postgame thoughts:

-thank God the Patriots lost
-both defenses tonight were completely worthless, there was nothing approaching a pass rush - one total sack all game (a pretty important one at least), one interception due to a receiver swatting it in the air, not due to the QB or defense; the all-time NFL offensive yards record for any game was set tonight
-Foles played like an all-star; probably not in Philadelphia, but he'll be starting somewhere next year
-Doug Pederson called a great game, watching the 2nd half due to both defenses' complete ineptitude presented each team with the scenario of "we have to score a touchdown every drive just to hold serve"; the Foles touchdown catch was a carbon copy of the play earlier that Brady dropped the catch; listening to Matt Hasselbeck on ESPN post-game I didn't realize this but Pederson ten years ago was coaching high school football
-why did Malcolm Butler not play?
-the refs I don't think called a pass interference all night

Apparently Jay Ajayi is an Englishman. Huh. Just had him on ESPN.

Been here since age seven per Wiki but still has more of an accent than Ben Simmons

For those overseas that didn't see the commercials, you have to find the Eli Manning/Odell Beckham commercial on YouTube or somewhere.

Well that was thoroughly enjoyable.

Cleaned up on the prop bets too.
I had $20 on a combo bet of Eagles +4.5 and total points of more than 48.5. $68 back. Thanks, mutual leaky defences!

Steve Young to Foles on ESPN: "Super Bowl winners don't sit on the bench, what now?"

Foles said he's just enjoying the moment and will worry about that later.

Some of the pictures on twitter of Philly are fairly wild. They're scaling the gates of city hall, turned cars over and things are on fire. :thumbup:

Word. I got:
Eagles 1st quarter
Eagles 2nd quarter
Total Points over 48.5
2nd half to be highest scoring half.
Thought I had put on Foles for MVP as well but mustn't have confirmed it dammit.

Managed to get both top scorers in the 20/20 the other night too. Been a profitable couple of days as far as my minnow level sports betting goes. Now to withdraw it all before I blow it.

The only thing the Superbowl decided was whether Philly was going to get trashed by fans who were happy or sad. [/SethMeyers]

Seriously well done Eagles, Nick Foles made a complete Stephen Donald out of himself.

In spite of my earlier post on the subject, Foles is no Beaver.

I couldn’t even see Foles’ gut hanging out under his jersey :thumbdown:

I only watched the highlights as I passed out way before it started. I did like Philly and the over plus Amendola total yards which were all winners.

Why was there such shrieking by the commentators over the Ertz TD? He was clearly a runner and broke the plane.

For all the talk about bad QB play, guys like Foles and Keenum showed there are some talented backups too.

We didn't get that either. Review should have taken 3 seconds and Collinsworth needed to shut the fcuk up.

There is a huge collection of videos doing the rounds today of various Eagles fans misdemeanours and felonies, as well as a guy eating horse sh!t for some reason. They are truly the best set of worst fans in the world.

Yeah, more than any of the other major sporting finals you can normally always rely on the Super Bowl to deliver a good game. Patriots Super Bowls in particular always seem to be exciting and come down to the wire.

There have been some absolute classics in the last 10 years or so, with lots coming down to the last play.

Giants-Pats x 2
Cards-Steelers
Ravens-49ers
Pats-Seahawks
Pats-Falcons

Even Packers-Steelers had the ball back in Big Bens hands with a chance to win it on a 2 minute drill and the Saints-Colts was up in the air until the Porter interception.

Only the Broncos two Superbowls were a bit lack-luster.

No pass interference calls last night, and on 93 called pass plays, not once did the offensive lines get called for a holding penalty.

Stanley Cup Playoffs refereeing?

as a Denver fan, here's the one I saw

55-10 loss to the Niners when I was 7 years old
win over the Packers - best one due to Elway finally winning after getting losses in the late '80s where he had no help, he easily could've been Dan Marino's twin in retirement for Super Bowls for both of them
win over the Falcons - no one bought the Falcons as a legitimate threat to win entering, game lived up to that
43-8 loss to the Seahawks - I also slid off the road on ice the next morning and destroyed the windshield of my Jeep
win over the Panthers - Peyton Manning wins as a geriatric and Cam Newton gets pummeled by the Denver D

Yeah. The NFL's head of officiating Riveron has been heavily criticized this year. Combined with Goodell saying he wants the catch rules simplified this offseason, it seems they made a decision to go ahead and change it early with that one Eagles touchdown. I just want pass interference especially called consistently because it's so subjective to start with.

Amazing game and reassuring that great coaching can't overcome all obstacles, that Pats front is diabolical and as bad as any in the league.

McDaniels and Peterson shot the lights out all night, incredible play-calling.
