  • Stop letting 'em Patriots win!!

    Can we please get a team here that will actually, STOP, the Patriots in the Super Bowl? Get Dallas to go get 'em! YEAH! Cowboys rock, they can beat ANY team! BESIDES, 20-17? Are you kidding me? Dallas can do waaayyy better than that against any team, and they also won last night with the Pats - Rams Super Bowl points combined!! 37-20!! Dallas!! Woot woot!! Now, let's discuss the game. 20-17, only 37 combined points? That's lame!! And THREE field goals?? You should be scoring touchdowns, and I have no idea what I'm talking about, its like someone is controlling what I say, or type, but at least these are my opinions, and you can't argue with that!moreless
