One of the most improbable finishes ever.
I put the cheesehead’s loss strictly on their coach’s strategy. When Seattle had a 3rd and 19 and desperately needed a score, Green Bay plays the prevent defense rushing three guys. Plenty of time for Wilson to find an open receiver and make the first down.
After Seattle gets within 5 with five minutes to play, Green Bay just tries to run out the clock, Runs three times losing yardage on each play. That created a momentum shift that would be found difficult to overcome.
It also didn’t help that Brandon Bostick closed his eyes fielding the onside kick. Hard to catch the ball that way. I also heard this morning that his task was to block and let his teammates field the kick. DOH!
Congratulations to Seattle for bringing it in the second half.
The Patriots were just too potent for the Colts. No team has had such a varied and imaginative offense as New England. Sacking Belichick could have been the biggest boner the Browns ever made.
On paper, this should be a fantastic Super Bowl.
Saturday I watched a movie on TCM with Althea Gibson in a minor role. It was “The Horse Soldiers” starring John Wayne and Althea played a maid on a plantation in Mississippi. That was the only movie she was ever in. The reason I bring it up is that in the early 1960s she became the first black player to compete on LPGA. By the way, she was shot dead by a Confederate soldier in an ambush.
I’m a huge fan of the comic strip DIlbert. It’s been really hitting home lately.
