I'm going to use that today if it kills me
The NFL season is over, which means it's probably a good time for big-time NFL writers to go home and take a nap. And it seems no certified water-carrier needs a break more than SI's Peter King, who took to Twitter last night to defend the Hall of Fame candidacy of … alleged serial rapist Darren Sharper? Please note that these tweets are twice as awkward if you read any one of them out of context:

This is a great angle of The Play
By now, you probably have seen Malcolm Butler's interception about a million times. But this amazing field-level angle of the New England Patriots cornerback's Super Bowl XLIX heroics is worthy of ...

Coach B blinded me with science!
Thomas Healy, a graduate student in mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon, has detailed data on how atmospheric conditions might have reduced the pressure in footballs in the A.F.C. title game.

Pretty cool list. I particularly like #41:

41. You’re a Patriots fan: Brady and Belichick can cement their legacy as possibly the greatest quarterback-coach duo in the history of the NFL. Also, Boston can finally end this unbearable 15-month title drought.

Tom Brady - greatest QB evah!

Money quote:

In one of the most incredible stats in all of sports history, Brady's Patriots are now 4-1 in the playoffs when he passes the ball 50+ times. Every other QB in history has combined to go 3-27 in that situation. Brady can carry a team in the clutch unlike any other QB in history. He's lapped the competition in carrying a team in the clutch.

It's similar numbers in the regular season. Usually, throwing 50+ passes is a bad sign, but not for TB12.
Tom Brady is now the greatest quarterback in NFL history. Prepare your fragile little eggshell mind for a tsunami of Cold, Hard Football Facts that will overwhelm the opposition and prove the obvious.

Bill Simmons nails it.

I particularly like this quote from one of his readers:

“The last three plays [of Seattle’s last drive] were like the Aaron Boone home run in 2003 followed by the 0-3 comeback back in 2004, but without the 12 months in between.”
It has taken days to finally process, absorb, and understand everything that happened in the final 12 minutes of the Patriots’ redemption in Arizona.

Introduction
Live blogging and notes about the Boston teams, especially the Patriots, Bruins and Red Sox. And probably some Revolution notes too. Not a big Celtic fan, sorry.
