    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    I was just saying the same thing to my family. If it wasn't for the Eagles and Giants then brady and bellichick would have 9 rings, i.e. won 17% of all superbowls ever played.

    What Chance Do You Give The Rams (If At All)?

    I would also say Rams have about 40% chance. Patriots coaching and player experience is the key difference.

    Which Super Bowl Matchup does the NFL actually want?

    Of course the Patriots will draw more interest than the Jags (more fans of the Patriots and more people probably want to see them lose). The NFC is a bit harder to tell. I feel like the eagles win on fans and a rematch of Patriots vs Eagles would be pushed as a major headline along with the backup QB having a chance to deliver the Eagles first Superbowl. I see the headline of the Vikings playing at home being a huge also. As some others have said, it would draw more fans to events in Minnesota. With all the news of ratings dropping the NFL could spin this as "look at all the fans we have and how many people have been around for the 2 week build up". On the opposite side I see it as dangerous come game time. Just wait until the camera catches the audience and you see very little vikings jerseys. It would haunt the NFL if it shows that most people that attend the Superbowl are mostly rich, business people and not actually fans who have the perfect opportunity to see their team at home in the championship. And if Minnesota makes it wait for fans and owners (cold weather, no dome, etc) to start complaining why they don't get to host a Superbowl and have the chance of home field advantage for the Superbowl. The NFL better be careful on what they wish for.

    Kaepernick still no job

    So you consider writing a check to be the qualification of an activist? Again, what has HE done in regards to bringing about resolution to the issues he is protesting? Giving money to other people to do something is yet again a weak a** attempt. That is nice and all, but how does this relate to him kneeing due to his stance on police brutality against black citizens? I can see an attempt to argue that some of the charities could directly effect the people in the communities and help nurture some people and steer them down a good moral pathway as to result in a reduced chance of encounters with law enforcement. However, that does not address the outside issue of his concern with police brutality. I cannot say how Kap should have address the issue since the issue can not be defined as one thing or the other. In reality he should have thought of approaches before making a fool of himself by protesting something that is very complex. Perhaps he should have instead given a press conference stating he wanted to be involved with all of the effected communities to try and be a mediator between them and law enforcement to calm tensions and prevent future conflicts in the meanwhile. It is at least better than standing (or kneeling) on a soap box during the anthems only to be out of sight afterwards. So again, how does a 2013 article about youth charity relate to the subject at hand?

    Kaepernick still no job

    I love how the media is so up its own A**. One day they are calling Lurie a racist for giving Cooper an extension and the next day they use the fact he also signed Vick as proof he is racist and supports criminals. What? They said he supports suppressing black protests like Kap. They based this on the fact that he said that protesting the anthem is distasteful and more so if the protester does not actually invest time off the field to help resolve the situation. Wow how closed minded Lurie is to expect people to actually try to come up with solutions instead of throwing tantrums. I think people are failing to see that the issues committed by Cooper and Vick occurred off the field whereas Kap made it a point to use his job to make a weak a** attempt at something. The media also never questions why Kap never tried to do more then just bring "awareness" to his cause then just taking a knee while on the work clock as he is being paid millions of dollars. I see it as Kap thinking that his free time was more important. Also, what person in the US was unaware of the events that were occurring besides mountain man dan in the middle on nowhere.
