Super Bowl game thread

Eagles up 7-0. Patriots haven't shown much of anything on offense yet. McNabb seems to be settling down. I think the Eagles seem to have more fire. I think they are going to win the game, but its early

Well I guess I may be talking to myself on this thread. The Patriots suddenly have come alive, but a huge turnover by Brady. But they have got the ball back and it looks like they're going to tie it. Its true what Aikman says about Brady - its his calm demeanor which is his defining characteristic. He has good attributes otherwise, but that isn't what is special.

Lito Sheppard made a mistake on the touchdown. You have to be over there better than that as Aikman said. But Brady showed another of his good attributes - how he looks at so much of the field and then at the last second made the decision to throw across the field for the touchdown. As they said, he manipulates defenders with those looks very cleverly.

Think everyone is watching the SB. It is a good game so far, with both defenses coming up big. I don't expect a repeat of the 4th QTR of last years game.

Eagles bring to within 3 - but historic error by Andy Reid on clock management. They had to go with the no huddle - at least hurry to the line offense - but no sense of urgency - and that is all on Andy Reid. Wow.

I don't think they attacked the Pat's secondary like they should have, especially after they lost Wilson, it looked like to me McNabb could have thrown the ball to Owen's all day, the game was there for the taking but to many mistakes by McNabb he just wasen't seeing the open reciever for the big play for the most part.

They've equalled the Buffalo Bills (although 3 were Confernece Titles, and not SB's)

Mcnabb simply doesn't have enough experience to win you the big game. He looks rather reckless on a lot of his throws. Poor eagle bastards...feel sorry for their fans too....they had a great chance to win this game considering how healthy TO was, and how banged up the Pats secondary was.

Next year, they won't even be in the NFC championship game.

So that was Andy Reid's call? Because the impression I got, at least from the announcers, was that they were in a no-huddle, at the line of scrimmage but then McNabb called them back into the huddle

If Reid wanted them in the hurry up, he would have said to do it. And this wasn't one play - they wasted a huge amount of time over that whole final touchdown drive - and even time on their last possession. If Reid thought things were amiss he would have said something.

Yes, personally I am sure that strategy was Andy Reid's approach. McNabb called the guy back - but he was following the approach of the coach, the way any player would. Reid knew what he was doing.

I guess he didn't want the team to panic - but that wasted an enormous amount of time. The post game press conference should shed light on his thinking.

I should have said that they weren't in the no huddle - just that one player, the center I think, motioned for McNabb to come up without a huddle, on one play.

Andy Reid's call was for a normal paced offense.
