Rap is a recording phenom, doesn't always work live. Bands that sound good on record tend to suck live. Even Stevie.

Didn't watch the Super Bowl and from the general consensus it sounds like I missed absolutely nothing. The Halftime Show sucked, the commercials sucked, the winner sucked, the game itself sucked; the Super Bowl this year just sucked.

Also, the Lions beat the Patriots this season. The Lions. I hate Brady and LA disappointed me but I'm not even mad at the result, I don't even care.

As for the Halftime Show, Maroon 5 were ass as many predicted, weren't they? They're ass anyway so it wasn't much of a prediction.

Aaron Donald's regular season numbers will mean nothing unless he gets it done at 'winnin time'. Walt Frazier always says the playoffs are where you make your fame. No matter what Belichick throws at him, Donald has to do what Justin Tuck did in SB XLII - wreck the game.


He and Suh were not impactful though the defense as a unit played well enough to win. Wade Phillips called a heckuva game. But the Pats lines were excellent the whole postseason.

The Pats looked like a vintage 80's-90's NFC East team last night. The teams played tough, quality defensive football that made for terrible TV.

The Rams forgot who brought them to the dance.

They didn't give Todd Gurley the damn ball! mad

It's like they wanted to put the ball in Jeff Goff's hands.

Jeff just didn't seem like the same qb without Cooper Kupp.

If the Rams offense showed up or just fed Todd the damn ball

it could have been a different outcome.

The Rams defense played as well as you could against the Pats offense

except control Julian Edelman.

Who? It was ultimately McVay's decision to limit Gurley's carries, and Gurley may have been hurt. They ain't firing him.

The defense was outstanding. Wade Phillips called one helluva game. For all the Edelman talk, NE didn't even get into the Red Zono until the 4th due to an all-world catch by Gronk.

Wade was just overshadowed by Belichick, who along with his DC Flores, called one of the 4-5 greatest defensive performances in SB history (including his schemes to shut down the Greatest Show On Turf in NE's first SB win).

Anybody who gets fired behind this would be a pure scapegoat.

falloff I thought y'all were talking about the Rams.

I'd take it easy on the bookers who booked Maroon 5. The best acts that had not previously played the Super Bowl weren't going to do the gig out of solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.

They'd exhausted all the surviving Baby Boomer tentpole acts and the big name Gen X/Hen Y acts have either played the SB or aren't around anymore.

Limited options.

For some reason there is no thread allowed on the halftime performance in the Music forum, so one last observation re - lack of logos on guitars.

I watched Prince's performance and I'll be danged - no logo on the Hohner OR the Strat that he played. I knew the NFL was a bunch of pricks but this is just beyond prickiness.

Has Van Halen played it? Or John Mellencamp? Those are the only two "tentpole" acts I can think of that haven't played it.

I'd love to see Van Halen there, with both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar.

I know the Patriots are cheaters, but still - 9 Super Bowls and 6 wins under Bellichick and Brady? Dang, no amount of cheating is going to get all those wins. Some of them at least were won honestly.

The job Bill Bellichick did on Sean McVay's offense was just incredible. You have to respect that. It was the shutdown of the millenium.

Really? We had to take them to court when they tried to copyright WHO DAT - after we won the championship. Actually started pulling down local merchandise. They lost that money grab.

Van Halen would be a bigger draw than Mellencamp, even though I like Mellencamp a little more personally. Not a bad idea, VH with Roth and Hagar could do a heckuva halftime

I get that it wasn't a high scoring game, but I'd take the game we got over a blowout snooze fest ... at least it was close so still quite gripping. And I enjoyed watching some of the great defensive play, though I accept that the casual fan wouldn't find that entertaining.

The halftime show was the worst one I've ever seen though. Maroon 5's music just isn't designed to grab an audience of 100,000 by the nuts, its too middle of the road. Had no idea who the rapper was, and Big Boi added nothing.

And don't get me started on the rent-a-crowd they had around the stage ... that's the most cringeworthy part of the halftime shows, when they stuff actors around the stage and get them to pretend like they're being spontaneous. That catalogue-model couple hugging during She Will Be Loved is one of the most vomit inducing thing I've ever seen.

The game itself was neither here nor there for me. I only cared about the result and in the end, I got the result I was after. I've heard people say it was boring and Conan O'Brien even compared it to baseball, which is as damning an assessment as you're likely to get, if you ask me. I do think that there's some exaggeration going on here though. It wasn't THAT bad a game.


I didn't watch the halftime show because I just assumed it was going to be bad. Maroon 5 don't appeal to me at all. But I've seen actual fans of Maroon 5 slate their performance at the Superbowl and now I kind of wish I had watched it just to see how bad it actually was.

Given that this Superbowl took place in Atlanta, Donald Glover would have been my choice to do the halftime show. And if he did it in character as Teddy Perkins, that would have been all the better.
