Super Bowl Prediction

The Bucs have little chance, even with Brady, Gronk, etc.  They are an 11-5 team playing one that is 14-2. Brady has had a bad game about 25% of the time this year, and very occasionally (though admittedly, not often) he has had bad playoff games over the years as well. Travis Kelce might actually become the greatest tight end of all time, even better than Gronkowski.  Way too early to tell on Mahomes, but it is at least a possibility on the far horizon that he passes Brady at the GOAT.  A turnover, a lucky bounce, a bad call, a mental error, a field goal that hits the upright - a couple of those would be additive and get Tampa Bay back in - but probably not.  I find myself rooting for Tom Brady (and definitely Rob Gronkowski) in spite of myself, but I think that will be disappointed.

On the other hand, things didn't look that great for Brady and Gronk when they were down 28-3 a few years ago either.  I don't have a TV and will only be checking in from time to time on the score. On we go.

Old age and treachery will beat youth and exuberance every time.

Oops! Should have dumped the metrics and gone with our gut feeling, eh?
