Quote of the day
"You [have] to catch the ball when youíre supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot [bleeping] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I canít believe they dropped the ball so many times." -- Giselle Bundchen, wife of Tom Brady
There is no shortage of Super Bowl post mortems on the internet or on TV, and Iím not going to try to compete with that. So let me just mention a few surprising observations that probably arenít getting mentioned elsewhere:
Although it was anticlimactic, congrats to blondiescookies2, who moonwalked to the Football Pickoff title. All prize winners will be notified by email in the next 7-10 days. Thanks to everyone who participated this season.
- The Patriotís longest pass play of the day was to Chad Ochocinco (21 yards). It was also his only catch, although thatís exactly his average for the regular season.
- After a week in which Peyton Manning was one of the dominant stories, there was not a single Peyton sighting between the kickoff and the end of the game. Not a shot in the luxury boxes. Not even a commercial. Totally absent.
- Bill Belechick stuck around after the game to give a hug to Tom Coughlin Ė and it looked sincere, rather than perfunctory. I certainly never saw that coming.

Had the exact same thought about the Belichick/Coughlin hug. Was just expecting some kind of hand slap. But it looked pretty 'real'.

If Bradshaw learns how to kneel down properly like Brian Westbrook I'd be a lot richer right now.
