    Has Ben Affleck been back to collect his $100 from Max? I remember a bet being made that whatever team Brady went to would be better than Belacheks Patriots..

    How in dafuq was a team(with a 6 time Super Bowl Winning QB, playing at home, with a receiving corp of Evans, Godwin, Gronkowski, and Brown along with a DEF that has a couple future HOFers) possibly UNDERDOGS by 3.5pts. Anyone who bet Kansas City deserved to lose their money. There will never be an easier bet(vs the spread)on the outcome of a SuperBowl then the gift we were handed in SB55.

    As a lifelong Colts fan and die hard Peyton Manning fan even I can admit Tom Brady is the 🐐 . Anyone trying to talk around that matter just sounds stupid and petty.

    Never bet on Tom Brady!! Because he's the man and always will be. Hes just to great! He just got to much Knowledge those young boys just don't understand the game yet!! Trust me when I tell you this.

    The most important positions on the field is the Oline. KC had injuries. It dont matter how great of a QB you are, if they dont block you aint doing anything.

    Some respect to Smith... he was humbled and gave credit... Max cant keep himself from hating Tom... he couldnt apologize nor admit once again how wrong he was was... just like Shannon. Brady just keep proving them wrong.

    Both Bowles and Leftwich should get hc gigs but for Bowles I’m sure they will hold the jets situation against him so it will be harder for him to be a hc again

    Great linebacking corps always help the defensive line be better. Any team with a linebacking Corps that can play like that is going to dominate on defense

    Why isn't anyone mentioning Mahomes wasn't 100% and needed surgery after the game on his foot? I understand not making excuses but we can't ignore if he was 100%, there's 0% chance the score would've been 31-9.

    Dear Max Kellerman, Please stop acting like you know anything about the sport of football. It's obvious you don't even watch the games. Like Skip Bayless, you're not an analyst, you're just a 'personality'. Your vague inflammatory comments don't contribute anything to professional sports. Please please please stick to boxing... where you can speculate and speak in generalities because the general populace simply hasn't had the level of exposure to understand the intricacies and complexities of the game itself. When it's a team sport that is as popular as football, people will see through the facade quick. The general public knows more about football than Max Kellerman. Sincerely, A football fan

    Why do we always run to the rescue to white people after they have done wrong or called us out of our name like the N word Like Michael Irvin coming to Tom Brady recue over Mathieu of the Kansas City Chiefs. We don't know what was said and what was not said. They don't run to protect us, now do they?

    I said for 2 weeks that’s SUH and Pierre Paul are playing like there in the early 20s. That’s trouble for anyone. Front 4 won that game.

    I think the game clearly showed the bucs are a more talented team overall at each position. Mahomes could only do so much. Frankly, you shut down that wide receiver and smother there tight end... They really are very average on offense...the bucs manhandled them at the line on defense, but the bucs offensive line was the shocker the KC defensive line got flat out blown out. Once the bucs got the big lead KC had zero chance

    How's the offensive line supposed to protect a QB who drops back 15-20 yards and rolls out of his protection every pass? Russel Wilson has the same problem. The NFL has figured this type of quarterbacking out. It wasn't always the case but the conventional pocket QB's are winning this battle.
