Major f@@k up by packers taking the field goal in the 4th when 8 down.

I've tried looking at that from a positive and can't find it. Bad enough in normal games, but with Brady on the ball it was suicide.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Same.

As one of the lads on Sky was saying - if you trust your defence enough to stop Brady in less than 10 yards, then why not run the 4th down play anyway?

They were right there it was a huge gamble to presume they’d get back down there again a bird in the hand and all that.

Brady was a mixed bag some brilliant throws and then too many interceptions. Serious achievement though and the fact he’s done it somewhere else shows serious balls and massive hunger @ 43 and having done everything there is to do.

Also Rodgers not running to the end zone on the 3rd down was a huge mistake by him!

There was a chance on second down too. I honestly think he bricked it. He wasn't happy in post game interview either.

He would have gotten closer though and it could have pushed them towards going for it on 4th he was making yards definitely.

I'd say it was 70-30 in his favour he was making it, but as said...it would have left them a lot closer to the end zone if he didn't.

Packers had thier chances, they got two turnovers in quick susccession and did nothing with them.

The current GOAT v the potential GOAT in the final.

Cant see the Bucs getting within a TD of them

Same as that but in saying that it would be typical Brady to win it by beating Brees, Rodgers and Mahomes in consecutive games. Two Hall of famers and in all likelihood Mahomes will be right up there with them! The Bucs defense will keep them in it and Brady will keep ticking over so you never know. I think KCs experience from last year will get them over the line.

Wonder what Belicheck and Kraft are thinking at the minute.........

I see the Chiefs winning it as well but the Bucs will be in their home stadium. I see it being a close game and I am looking forward to it.

As it was happening I think I agreed with taking the field goal but in hindsight it was a poor call.  I agree with screen too that Rodgers should have ran the ball on 3rd down. No, I doubt he was going to get the TD but he would have been very close.  The 4th down attempt at a TD would probably have been a certainty at that stage.  Was it a lack of bottle by Rodgers? You know that Mahomes would have went for that...

Not having Jones at that stage of the game really hurt the Packers IMO.

Will home stadium matter that much? I presume not a whole lot of fans will be allowed in.

Hard to see past the Chiefs they're just too good in all areas.

22k fans. 7.5k of which are to vaccinated health care workers I believe.
