What a grinch! Much excitement for us old farts....43-yr-old QBshone like no ther young sud..beating 2 HOF QB while on the road..and 68-yr-old coach Arian’s ..oldest coach to win SB.
Brady came to a team in the first year with no team practice due to COVID pandemic and got it together and beat the best!
Hardly boring unless you’re a KC Chiefs fan.
I do wish they would get away from automatically giving the MVP to the winning QB. I thought this was the year for a defender. TB's defense made this game. That is not to say Brady wasn't great, but honestly with the way the Chiefs' defense was giving out penalties and the TB defense was shutting down Mahome, pretty much any NFL QB could have won that game.
I think that is a great idea. Another thought would be MVP winner, MVP loser. I remember the year the Pats beat Carolina. It was a thriller down to the last two minutes. Of course Brady won the MVP, but he had great protection all game long, he just sat in the pocket and drilled passes. Delahome for the Panthers was scrambling like mad, dodging defenders left and right and keeping the Panthers in the game. He was clearly the star of the game in terms of playing the lights out and keeping it interesting but of course, his team lost.
I’m teasing you, Frank. Interesting is all relative. I’m an unabashed Brady fan and now that I’m a snowbird in So Fl, a new Bucs fan.
However, if you wanted a well contested game, it lacked the suspense. I must agree that watching from a balanced game-action standpoint, you could’ve left at the half. There were some great playoff games that had me glued the whole game.
As for ages, I’m 70 years,not a spring chicken by any means, and appreciate how well ‘older’ QBs are doing as compared to past.
They have been in a couple of very delightful Super Bowl games.

The SB with Tyree’s Helmet Catch! Arggggh! Nothing beats that for drama (and pain) especially as it was the end of a back-and-forth game! Not to mention Manning evading the sack 3 times! I think that was on the same play in SB 42.
