    What a defensive masterclass by the Pats. Quite embarrassing for the Rams to get one field goal in a hour of play.

    Another reason why Big Bill's the master tactician. Made McVay look an amateur, went with defensive looks from years ago. Every year they go back to plays which have worked either for them or other teams. Being a Niners i'm glad Rams blew it. They've got next year and after that they'll be in salary cap hell. Put their house on winning a super bowl in a 2 year period. Patriots build through the draft, they always look to brains over muscle, get players that fit the scheme and are adaptable. That's why they've been 9 out of the last 16 super bowls, in a league that's built on parity its amazing. They've only missed out on Play Offs once if memory serves me correctly.

    RIP Bart Starr. One of the best leaders and winners in NFL history. From 200th overall draft pick in 1956 to 5 time world champion, he was the heart of Vince Lombardi's dynasty.

    Think we had a thread on here a while back about the strength of tackles rugby v american football: i'd rather have a helmet and luxury padding.

    I wouldn't fancy being tackled by any to be honest mate! Some of the league lads are ridiculously powerful, knocking people out right left and centre.

    Cracking start to the season for my team the niners, not the toughest of starts but I've a tenner on them for outsiders for the Superbowl. I did the same last year but Jimmy G got injured for the season early doors and that scuppered that bet.

    Had a five pound eight timer with Sky Bet yesterday for points in every quarter of every six o clock game and got 91 pounds. Wish i'd been brave and added the other five matches that day, as those came in too. Great start for my 49ers with Jimmy back fit for this season. It's a tough schedule all through the season, but play offs should be happening for once.
