Not that there was much doubt, but Gronkowski has cleared the concussion protocol and will play in the Super Bowl.

Hopefully Brady and the Pats will be able to take advantage of this mismatch early in the game rather than falling behind by 25 points like last year!
I have a lot of hope they will take advantage of it. Philly is really good at taking wide receivers out of games but are not very good at slowing down TEs and running backs catching balls out of the backfield. Gronk, Lewis, and White should have big games. Also see a lot of WR screens happening. Hoping for a nice 10-14 point win.
That would be a nice refreshing change. A comfortable win please Bill

I'd be on board with that. I don't think my heart and emotional well being can take another eke- it- out- from- behind- or- fall- just- short.

Dear Pats,

Can you PLEASE win the SB by a comfortable margin if you do.

My 19 year old heart really can't handle all these last minute thrills/heart attacks over the years   

 :laugh:

Come on Pats. Try to win this by like a 20+ margin and make it easy  ;D

The two Bills was flipping awesome.

Tom v Time has been really good too.

The more I think Sundayl, the more I think that this is going to be the one relaxing SB where the broadcast takes a trip down memory lane with the Patriots through the years and rings as they enjoy a convincing victory.

Prediction: NE 31 PHI 17

I'm just hoping for some entertaining, non-SJW style commercials and for Justin Timberlake to tear it up at halftime.  I hate both teams so no matter who wins I'm in football hell.

Sounds like several Eagles players are coming down with the flu at the worst possible time:

"According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor received an IV Saturday morning after he told the team's training staff he was "feeling sick and weak."

Eagles defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, linebacker Mychal Kendricks and cornerback Ronald Darby were also feeling ill earlier in the week, per ESPN.com's Tim McManus. "

Brady was sick at last years superbowl too.

Or was it SB49.

He also had a famous flu game way back in like 2003.

That said, I'd love to see Timmy Jernigan looking a little lethargic out there.

The problem with the flu is the second half of the game as we saw in the 2006/2007 AFC Championship game.  After that long half time break, guys are likely to cramp up.

Those guys are no Jordan, Kobe, or Brady though. Not even close.

The paralymic champion commercial is probably the first Super Bowl commercial to maybe make me almost cry
