Podcast: Two-part Super Bowl bonanza
On Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, the (brutal) officiating, Jalen Hurts... with a touch of Buffalo Bills discussion. Let's wrap up a classic.
Super Bowl LVII delivered. The late holding was infuriating — and we put that wayward flag into context — but Patrick Mahomes, Jalen Hurts, both of these teams unquestionably had 113 million viewers on the edge of their seats. Maybe that’s why we were so irate over the hold. We needed the drama to continue.
To wrap the game up, co-host Jim Monos and myself break this podcast into two parts.
Part I is all Chiefs talk. How special was a hobbling Mahomes in Glendale? He is already one of the best quarterbacks ever. A select few athletes are able to rise up when all is lost. He’s on that Jordan/Brady short list. Andy Reid? This was his best performance. He should’ve gone for it on fourth down early but Reid is far and away the sport’s best play designer. (Nice call, Monos.) Why do the officials feel the need to waltz into this party? All we ask for is consistency.
On Part II, we shift over to the Philadelphia Eagles. Jalen Hurts asserted himself as the best quarterback in the NFC with a sterling performance. Nick Sirianni was aggressive. He proved his worth in this Super Bowl moment. The defense? Not quite. And we take our first look at the Buffalo Bills’ offseason — the most important offseason this franchise has had in years.
