Superbowl LV Preview

By | Personal Blog | One Comment

You might describe the Superbowl matchup as the standout team of the season (and current title-holder) versus the team that currently has Tom Brady at QB. Showing no signs of hangover, the Chiefs have put together a near-flawless season. On offence, Mahomes keeps getting better and has a array of powerful weapons, including his own mobility and legs. His speedsters can run deep routes, but are equally able to get the ball with a screen,…

Superbowl LIV Preview

In Australia, we would say this year’s match up of two teams who haven’t made a Superbowl for a while is “good for football”, and indeed the entire post-season thus far has been one of the better ones in recent years. Yes, I enjoyed seeing the Pats bundled out early. Maybe I’m indulging in schadenfreude, and maybe I just think it’s time for some other teams to shine (probably both). I really enjoyed the Titans…

The first big question about this year’s Superbowl – “why isn’t it called Superbowl IL?” – is easy to answer. As should be obvious, the subtractive principle for Roman numbers has these restrictions: You can only subtract a power of ten, and only from the next two higher “digits”. The second big question – who will win – is a little harder to answer. You might call this the battle of the established dynasty versus…

Superbowl XLVII Preview

This has been one of the best post-seasons in recent years, with a good number of fantastic games and recurring themes. Both #1 seeded teams will not play in the final game of the season. Again the Patriots will miss out – since their re-emergence as a power team in 2002 and three Superbowl victories in four years, their championship drought continues. How much longer can they continue to be competitive and then miss out?…

The two championship games played on Super Sunday were hard fought, close matches, and there were truly four possible outcomes for the Superbowl match-ups. The Patriots will line up again against the New York Giants in what should be an intriguing game. We all thought the Patriots were done this year. Tom Brady kept doing his thing, and was a big part of the “year of the tight end” with Gronkowski and Fernandez as imposing…

Besides the obvious question (is VL a valid Roman numeral for 45?), this year’s NFL Superbowl between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers throws up many more subtle questions when we consider each team’s prospects at becoming “World” Champions. Unlike the last couple of years, there are no emotional upstarts like the Saints or the Cardinals challenging for the crown. These are two long-time NFL juggernauts; well-managed teams with long histories of success….

Superbowl XLIV Preview

The last time the top two seeds from the NFC and AFC played off in a SuperBowl was in 1993, when the Cowboys blew away the Bills. This season, as the Colts and the Saints both remained unbeaten well into the season, the likelihood of their meeting in the final game was discussed by many, and rejected by some. After each team stuttered at the end of the regular season with losses that were spun…
