Yet he stuck to the run.
They only ran the ball eight times after they went down 20-10 and four of those were Mahomes scrambles. They went extremely pass heavy once they got down. That's also not counting the three Mahomes kneel downs on the final possession which go in the books as rushing attempts.

Tyreek Hill. Great route on the 44 yard catch. And on the play before that he would have caught the first down to move the chains, just couldn't quite keep it from touching the ground but gave a good effort. I'm not a Tyreek fan and kept waiting for the predictable Tyreek fumble or bonehead play, never really happened. He really stepped up.

Re: Super Bowl Game Day Thread

I haven't seen a QB with Pat's ability at his age (24) in quite a while.

Niners didn't play bad defensively. It's just that Pat made plays, avoided sacks, made 4/5 yard completions to adjust arm angles, keeping drives alive. This was with Nick Bosa breathing down his neck all game .. in the Super Bowl. That's big time, prime time. Andy Reid/Eric B wore the Niners defense out late. Kelsey/Hill/Watkins and #15 pulling the trigger ... very difficult to defend.

I can count QB's on one hand who has that type of escapability. The scary part is that this is only Pat's 2nd full season as a starter.

It isn't the number of rushing attempts but the yards gained per attempt.

A team can rush the ball 35 times and gain 70 yards or 3 times and gain 150

Mahomes had 44 yards entering Kansas City's final possession. With the Chiefs leading 31-20 and 57 seconds remaining, Mahomes kneeled on three straight plays, losing 15 yards. He finished with 29 yards rushing.

Screw the 49ers, the Chiefs, and the league.... Quite a few plays were called/not called inconstantly with the way they have been calls against us. Our fault for leaving games in the hands of the refs.

Bosa should have the MVP. Sherman not getting a ring was worth the money spent on alcohol needed to watch the game.

I have not seen the Saints play as hungry as either of those teams in years. Both teams played like they were trying to make the Refs blow the play dead, we have played like we were waiting on the whistle for a few years now.

This is a very good thing. Many of those players come from families with NFL backgrounds. They need to be the vocal leaders. Cam Jordan's father was great player, as was Michael Thomas' uncle. They also learned the vocal leadership from players like Mark Ingram who also had a very successful NFL father.

Not what I were inferring to . Thatís great to be vocal leaders in the community and bolster there charities But to fly across the country to be on a talking heads show so they can pick there brains on Payton and Brees after not showing up in a playoff game humm
