This guy had a better game than Tom Brady. The punter. For the losing team. Marinate on that if you will.

Maybe it’s just me, but IMHO, from now on the powers that be at NFL HQs should hold off giving that big football game that happens the first week of February a name until after the last play from scrimmage. Because in no way, shape or form was anything about that bowl game super. More like Super Bore.
So, if you share the same opinion, and if you’re a true fan of the game, how could you not – it was most definitely not your imagination. Here’s some facts about this certifiable snooze fest that can’t be denied:
  • In the entire game, there was one, count it ONE pay in the red zone.
  • The most exciting play of the game was arguably a punt that just so happened to be the longest punt in Super Bowl history at 65 yards.
  • Speaking of which, the Ram’s punter kicked a total of 417 yards. Yawn.
  • Fans had to wait 107 plays before a touchdown was scored. (Zzzzzz.)
  • Both teams sucked on 3rd down with Los Angeles going 0 for 8 on third down in the first 8 drives and New England only converting 3 of 12 attempts.
  • Zero touchdowns the first three quarters of the game. (Wake me when you’re done.)
  • Arguably the best RB in the game Todd Gurley carried 10 times for 35 yards and lost a yard on his only reception.
  • It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history with a total of 16 points scored.
Now, if that doesn’t qualify what we suffered through last night to be henceforth and forever more known as the Super Bore, I don’t know what does.
