The game was won as they say in the trenches! The chiefs OL simply couldnt handle that Buccs front 4 , and that was with Bowles only sending 4 blitz's. Mahomes rarely got his feet set tonight . Eric Harris was a huge loss for the Chiefs . Brady is some cat, they wont be easy stopped next year either....

Eric Fisher.

Eric Harris was, I think, one of the Columbine shooters

Mahomes was badly let down.
The protection he got was non existent during the whole game.
Some of those dropped passes are inexcusable.

Bucs D was exceptional - double coverage on Hill took away Mahomes going long.
Kelce was marshalled very well throughout.

Brady wasnt outstanding - more competent I would say.
He has however seems to have a fantastic team spirit going in Tampa.

He got fantastic protection.

Be interesting to see if the Chiefs team stick together

The buccs D had brought that same pressure to Brees and Rodgers in the playoffs so I suppose that was to be expected again.  The Chiefs really struggled at the O Line.

I found the flags very frustrating all evening.  Minimal reasons for pass interference in my opinion.  Looking at what was allowed during the NFC and AFC championship games and what was not allowed in the Superbowl, it's chalk and cheese.  Throw in the non call for the false start by Gronk and it doesn't make good viewing.

That being said, Tampa were the best team on both sides of the ball and deserved winners.  Such an improvement on how that team started out the season.

Good luck to Drew, but IMO the time is right.  A legend gone.

The Saints are in the sh*t in terms of cap space and have been cutting lads and restructuring contracts for the last few weeks.  I still expect some big departures.  Probably Michael Thomas.  No idea what they are going to do at QB now.  Taysom Hill got a restructured deal but i'd be surprised if they start the season with him as starting QB.  Same probably goes for Jameis.

Time was right. Injuries and age really caught up with him in playoff games the last 2 seasons and he looked like an old man at times

They will be fine re the cap, its like a yearly challenge with them. Only 9m over at the moment and bar Malcolm Brown it hasn't been too painful. Thomas just restructured deal so he is staying.
I expect Kamara to do the same.  Hill could play more at TE this season than QB with Cook and Josh Hill gone. 
Jameis is still front runner to start at QB but they should be drafting one with their 1st round pick. Russell Wilson as much as I would love it to happen would be too expensive.

The NFL draft is tonight. The Jaguars are picking first and will Take Trevor Lawrence from Clemson at quarterback. The rest of the draft is unpredictable and will make for a great late nights entertainment.

Aaron Rodgers wants to leave the Packers according to reports. He is still understandably not happy that they tried to replace him in last years draft.

Yeah he is also looking for an extension (more money) so I think itís also partly that but when they traded up for Love this was on the cards, didnít think it would be this year though.
