It's make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see millionaires cheating their way into more money.

Go Patriots!

NWO? No. Just no.

Though it might have been funny to see them go full heel and spray paint the trophy and dump out a bag of skittles and rip up a 12th Man flag.

      Shame Bennett had to go offsides like that at the end. I was looking forward to seeing what the Pats did.

    Yeah, I spelled it wrong. Did you miss the message? Seattle got here on the strength of a gut wrenching loss by the Packers. So gut wrenching that this Packer fan could root for the Patriots (or against the Seahawks).

    Seahawks fans now get to know how it feels.

Seattle beat your precious Pack - that's it. They didn't cheat, they didn't do anything underhanded. Karma means that one's actions decides their future fate. (And if you believed a "gut wrenching loss" = karma, then the Pack deserved to lose after the Cowboys lost to them in such a manner.)

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Carroll lived by the insane play call at the end of the half and died by it at the end. It sucks the Pats win, but what doesn't suck is the fact that no one believes that they got here on their own. I can see them going back due to how weak the AFC is.

Our whole neighborhood was rooting for the 'hawks last night, but as life-long Vikings fans, we want to thank Seattle for taking Bevell from us.

    Its possible, but everyone would credit the Patriots with making a play when they needed to rather than blame the Seahawks for having a brain fart. Marshawn Lynch was one of the (two? three?) best running backs in the league this year. If you can't trust him to get you two yards and not fumble to close out the Super Bowl, who can you trust?

So intercepting the ball isn't making a play anymore?

It is and credit to Butler for making that play, but it never should have been his play to make in the first place. The point is more that fumbles may happen, but Lynch is as close to a proven commodity at that point as possible.

I'm just going to link to Bill Barnwell at Grantland ( who does a better job going over this than I have been.

(Super Bowl jokes going around)

"Pete Carroll, if your team wins the Super Bowl, you can go to Disney World!"

Pete Carroll: "Nah, I'll pass."

The second game in a row the Patriots deflated a Wilson.

Seth Meyers: "Throwing the ball on the one yard line when you have Marshawn Lynch is like trying to kill someone with a gun by throwing it at them."

I thought Simmons nailed it pretty well here.

Here’s what we know: Seattle had already wasted two timeouts, so it had to pass on second or third down. If it ran Lynch on second down and didn’t score, it would have had to burn the third timeout and pass on third down, too.

But the Seahawks were expecting Belichick to call timeout. Only he didn’t. Remember that seemingly unimportant timeout that Brady wasted? That made it impossible for New England to stop the clock three times. This was now a poker game. What do you do when you know you have the lousier hand? You bluff.

I believe he hatched this plan during Seattle’s second timeout: If Lynch doesn’t score on first down, here’s what I am doing next. He liked having those 50-50 pass odds on second down. He wanted the game to speed up. He wanted confusion and chaos. He wanted that in-game pressure to tilt Seattle’s way.

I believe there is a soundness to this logic. "What did the Seahawks WANT Belichick to do?" Call timeout. SO he didn't. Of course, I would argue "what did the Patriots NOT want the Seahawks to do on the next play?" was "give it to Lynch again", so that's exactly what they should've done, which I've said since approximately 0.0001 seconds after that happened.

And you know how Malcolm Butler said they KNEW that play was coming? I'm just going to leave this here (and watch him and Browner about 6000 more times in the next couple of days.)

After letting it all sink in and reading about the last play, I have to say that it was an unbelievable defensive play by both Butler and Browner.

They saw the play develop and read it perfectly. Browner blocked his guy long enough to let Butler avoid the pick and make a play for the ball. Big kudos to Browner but bigger ones to Butler for getting to the spot first and having the presence to not only make a play for the ball (instead of knocking it down) but to hold onto it and make the interception. An undrafted rookie. Wow.
