It was really interesting. For 3 quarters the Pats had the Rams under control. and suddenly everything clicks for Warner and his guys... SOmething tells me that if they hadn't scored that 2nd TD when they did, the Rams would have taken it in overtime... If they had stepped outside and use about 30 seconds getting the 3-4 yards the Pats would have never made it within kicking range..
Awesome game though. And I don't even usually watch football..but had nothing else to do this night

Did they show Warner's wife during the game? My wife hates the Rams solely for Warner's wife (hey, at least she'll watch), and I don't recall them showing her during the game so we could make fun of her awful hairdo and lee press-on nails.
Great game tho!!!
When that fumble recover TD got reversed and the Rams scored two real quick, it looked pretty bad. I probably would have ran out the clock and took it into overtime and hoped to win the coin toss, or at least pin the Rams deep and get good field position on the punt.
Of course, I didn't realize that J.R. Redmond had such a nose for the sidelines. He made two big plays converting first downs and just as importantly, getting out of bounds. Then Troy Brown made another clutch play that he has made in just about every game they've had in the postseason. He's got to be the team MVP for the playoffs. Nobody has made the clutch plays when they had to have them like that guy.
Great SuperBowl. There were some lag spots with timeouts and commercial breaks, but that 4th Qtr was awesome.
Can't wait to see what my beloved Seahawks can do in the NFC next year. I'm sure the Rams will be pissed and be on a MISSION next year, and we're in their division :-(
Personally, I was hoping the game would end in regular time - I do NOT like the NFL's version of overtime (coin toss wins the game half the time). To have the Pats win the game as they did was simply outstanding. My hats are off to them - after all, at least one team that can win a championship is always nice in Boston, right?
I heard yesterday that it was one of the defensive backs that called the time out, not Carroll. And I think they kept that fairly low key because Carroll didn't want the kid to get a ton of negative press.
