    The British guy has spoken! Patriots vs 49ers in the Superbowl imo.

    I'll be glad to be continuing the tradition of watching the Superbowl instead of having to work. Every year for the last 7, at least.

    Unlike other people, I think the ravens have a good chance of beating the patriots.

    Ravens 28 | Patriots 20
    49ers 28 | Falcons 42 (High-scoring game!)

    Patriots 24 Ravens 27
    49ers 17 Falcons 24

    These are going to be either higher scoring games than I think, or both evenly matched with decisions based on a TD or less.

    Falcons are going to choke. They almost did last game so they are definitely going to choke this game. Ravens have no hope against the patriots. They shouldn't even be here, the Broncos should have won.

    I hope this thread can also be used for NFL talk because that is what I'm going to do right now. Chip Kelly just accepted the job at the Philadelphia Eagles! This is a huge hire for the Eagles. Discuss.

    For those that don't know Chip Kelly was the head coach at Oregon. His main stratagem is high powered offenses. Score fast.

    Should we make a different thread for NFL talk or use this?
    Oh an Chip Kelly will be amazing for the eagles if they can preform...after this season I'm unsure.

    I think using this will be fine because the talk will turn to Playoff talk on gameday. No harm imo.

    Edit: Well the biggest thing that the Eagles are lacking is a good QB. Obviously it will be hard to get a good quarterback in this upcoming draft though.

    Ravens 35 vs Patriots 21
    49ers 42 vs Falcons 14

    I think that the Ravens key to a victory is killing the Patriots by throwing the ball deep. Torrey Smith will be the X factor. 49ers are going to just wreck the Falcons. They're too hot.

    Using the thread for NFL discussion? Eh, at times that can be a stretch because there are times in the offseason where there might be no real news for weeks, so I don't see the thread lasting really until we pick up around draft time after the super bowl.

    I'll probably start a new thread, come preseason.
    And @Elements,
    There aren't many QBs this year, especially to for the Eagle's system.

    So I just read this piece on Manti Te'o. I have to say it was very interesting considering his Senior year at Notre Dame was filled with much publicity and a story that captivated people around the nation. It turned out that his girlfriend that died....well, she didn't exist!

    http://deadspin.com/5976517/manti-t...tory-of-the-college-football-season-is-a-hoax

    How do you guys think this will affect his draft stock?

    I loled at it, but seriously.

    It really shouldn't affect his draft stock as he still is an amazing talent and this isn't imo a "major" off the field thing.

    According to ESPN, it will.
    They don't want morons and nut-cases on there team.
    Then, they'll just end up suspended / doing something wrong, and not living up to their potential.
    I mean, c'mon. Who the fuck makes up a girlfriend just so she can die, the same day his grandmother died!?

    Okay well ESPN said that the person who said that they were 80% sure that Te'o was in on it was good friends with the guy who created the fake girl. Seems fishy imo. Te'o might be just a victim of a massive troll.

    I still would find it hard to believe he wasn't in on that hoax. Looking at it, I think it'd hurt him publically with this stunt if he was/wasn't in on it as an appeal to coaches, GMs, and other staff on teams thinking regardless of him being in on it or not, do we take a chance on a guy...who was a part of this? Especially because it was something so stupid in my opinion.

    There have been a plethora of times where proffesional or highly skilled athletes have used their egos, attitueds, or obscure mental state to do something that's plain dumb.
    This might be an example of that...or it could be a hoax.
    All in all, he'll end up in the NFL, regardless.
    The question is, how many teams will be repelled from him, now?
    how much later will he be picked?
    Will notre dame's rep be hurt?

    I'm pretty sure Notre Dame's rep got hurt with that horrible beatdown they got by Alabama.

    Both games tomorrow.
    Te'o is apparently innocent and it was all a hoax. But, he's also extremely gullible. (Source: Sportcenter report, this morning.)
    Interesting Question: If you had to pick one defense, one offense, and one coach out of the remaining four teams, which offense, defense, and coach would you pick? Why?

    My (not so interesting) answer:
    Patriots Offense since they're experienced and Tom Brady isn't losing.
    49ers Defense because they've proven their dominance and are relatively healthy.
    Harbaugh (of the 49ers) because he came from the NCAA, where he brought a 1-11 team to going 11-1. Then, he made the 49ers go from a mediocre franchise to an elite football team, making consecutive conference championship games.

    Oh good question finchy:

    I'd go the Atlanta Offense just because Matt Ryan can pull of some clutch moments when needed and from what I see can hang with the best of them in the near future. Injuries over the last few years just never allowed him to been seen this way before.

    The 49ers Defense because....okay if I have to answer this there is something wrong with you. They are probably the best defense in the league over the last 2 seasons.

    As for coach, I'd pick Belichick for the coach. Again, simple decision, time and again Belichick has shown he's probably one of the (if not the) best coaches year in and year out minus a few games from time to time.

    This does nothing big for the Eagles, does it help their offense? Yes! Was it the problem? NO!
    DEFENSE. DEFENSE. WINS. CHIPS. There are rarely high scoring super bowls. Offense sells tickets, defense wins super bowls. Even the high offense scoring teams are usually able to generate turnovers in playoffs (I.e 2010 Packers, had one of the best playoff defenses in the last 10 years)

    And Reid is a fine coach, sometimes the players mess up, can't blame Reid for Vicks fumbles, although you could blame him for the play calling. It's harsh on coaches because their player's ability defines them as a coach.

    This definitely has an impact on his draft stock, teams don't just look at talent, they look at player morale and how a player will represent their franchise. Some teams are a bit desperate for solid players (Chiefs, Chiefs, Jags, Chiefs) So they don't give a shit, but once you get into the .500 teams and above, they might think twice about drafting him.

    30 minutes until game time, starting with the 49ers v. the Falcons. I better see a high scoring offense from Matty Ice, a good showing for Colin Kaepernick, and a hard hitting defense from the 49ers like always. I see this game really coming down to if the Faclons Defense can match and keep up with Kaepernick's offense.

    All the 49ers fans shouldn't give up, yet. And the Falcons fans, shouldn't start wearing their conference championship sweatshirts and get on the road to Dallas, for the Super Bowl, either.
    As you'll likely remember, the Falcons where winning, 20-0, over the Seahawks, at halftime. In the end, they won by what, 2 points? (or 1.)
    The second half (or second quarter) comeback is extremely possible.
    It isn't over, until it's over!

    Will the 49ers and their firey offense get into blaze range and take control or, will the Falcons, led by Quaterback Matt "Ice" Ryan hold their slim lead and make it to the Super Bowl?

    What's up with that challenge call standing...pretty obvious that it should've been overturned..!
    This game is hitting it's climax, right about now, regardless of that call.
