It was the worst Super Bowl of all time."Super Bowl LIII is now over Sheldon Rankins Jersey 2019 , and the NFL world is a better place now that we can put that mess behind us all.While the NFL and media drooled over themselves with the offenses of “today’s NFL,” highlighted by regular season games between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams, the Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Chiefs and the New England Patriots, there was much ado about two of the NFL’s best offenses (and mediocre defenses) showing up on the grandest stage of them all.Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty ImagesThe total over/under betting line for points scored in the game was 55.5. That’s fifty-five and a half points. The NFL, Vegas, and the sports world as a whole expected this to be an exciting, high-scoring affair that would leave football fans chomping at the bit for the 2019 season. Instead, what they got was a 13-3 snooze-fest in what might go down as one of the worst Super Bowls ever. And Saints fans - and players - couldn’t be happier. No, this wasn’t one of the worst Super Bowls just because it was a defensive showdown fought in the trenches of each team’s offensive and defensive lines. It was one of the worst Super Bowls because of story lines created in the game. Here are ten reasons why Super Bowl LIII was the worst Super Bowl ever, and why the NFL - and Roger Goodell - absolutely deserve it.1 - The Winning TeamIt’s not hyperbole to say most football fans were not cheering for the Los Angeles Rams. Rather, they were cheering against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The world wanted to see a passing-of-the-torch between the Patriots dynasty and the young and exciting Los Angeles Rams.Nope.Instead the world got the most boring result possible: Tom Brady and the Evil Empire win. Again.2 - The first flag of the gameNickell Robey-Coleman because infamous after the NFC Championship Game as being the culprit of the blatant no-call defensive pass interference and helmet-to-helmet hit on Saints WR Tommylee Lewis. Robey-Coleman initially admitted the hit was illegal, but then was forced to backtrack for fear of de-legitimizing the Rams’ Super Bowl berth.So it was absolutely poetic for the first flag of the game to be thrown against the Rams, specifically Robey-Coleman, for hitting the opposing pass-catcher too early, in what looked like an perfectly legal tackle.3 - Missed DPISticking with officiating, it wasn’t nearly as blatant as the no-call that cost the Saints in the NFC Championship Game, but again, it was poetic justice:With the Rams down a mere touchdown with 4 minutes left to go in the game, Jared Goff threw a costly interception to the Patriots four-yard line that would wind up costing his team the chance to win.After the pick, the Patriots drove down the field and kicked the all-important FG that put the Pats up two possessions. It was a deficit the Rams would be unable to overcome, and it all happened as a result of the interception. But wait - there’s more. That interception was the result of a potential no-call that hurt the Rams:Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.ehemHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA4 - The MVPTom Brady, the greatest QB of all time who just won his record-setting SIXTH Super Bowl ring, was not the game’s MVP. In fact, Brady didn’t score a single touchdown in the game White Andrus Peat Jersey , throwing more passes for picks (1) than scores (0).Instead, Julian Edelman - who caught ten passes for 141 yards - was named MVP. But guess what? He didn’t score a touchdown either. Edelman because the first offensive Super Bowl MVP that didn’t score a touchdown since Fred Biletnikoff in Super Bowl XI.What makes Edelman’s MVP even more embarrassing for the NFL is that Edelman was suspended the first four games of this season due to testing positive for PEDs.That’s right: your reigning Super Bowl MVP is coming off a season where he was suspended multiple games for performance-enhancing drugs. In baseball, a player popped for PEDs is ineligible for the postseason roster. In the NFL, Kaepernick is still without a job and Edelman, busted for cheating, went on to help his team win the big one.5 - McVay and Goff crumble under pressure“Sean McVay is a football genius.”“Sean McVay is brilliant for how young he is.”“Sean McVay is sooo dreamy.”“Sean McVay’s best friend’s neighbor’s dog’s veterinarian’s ex-husband once had a kid who played flag football so he’s probably qualified for an NFL head coaching gig.”We’ve all heard the talk.Well, when the lights came on for Super Bowl LIII, Sean McVay got taken to school by Bill Belichick, and McVay knew it.Granted, his quarterback didn’t help him out much, completing only 19 of 38 passes for 229 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception for a 13.4 QBR.6 - Rams lone highlight was a really long puntThe Los Angeles offense just couldn’t get the ball moving. They had as many punts and sacks as they had offensive first downs (13).That being said, it’s not a shock to hear that the biggest play of the Rams all game came on a record-breaking punt.Still, with a team led by Sean McVay and Wade Phillips and comprised of players like Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Aqib Talib, Jared Goff, and Marcus Peters, it is obviously disappointing when their lone highlight is a really, really long kick.7 - The Todd Gurley mysteryOne year after Bill Belichick made football pundits scratch their heads with the inexplicable benching of former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Butler, Sean McVay left the world similarly confused with the unexplained absence of Todd Gurley.Photo by Harry How/Getty ImagesCounting punts and holds Andrus Peat Jersey 2019 , Rams punter Johnny Hekker touched the ball as many times as Todd Gurley in the game. Gurley finished the game with 11 total touches for 34 yards. This is the same player who led the league with 17 rushing touchdowns and was third in total rushing yards with 1,251 (besting the league leader Ezekiel Elliott with a yards per attempt average of 4.9 compared to Zeke’s 4.7). Gurley also added another 580 yards in the air with four receiving TDs in the 2018 regular season, accounting for over 1,800 yards of total offense and 21 total touchdowns.Sean McVay’s refusal to use Todd Gurley all game caused many fans to question whether or not Gurley was dealing with an undisclosed injury. No word has come out yet, but consider this:Who knows?8 - Single, boring touchdownWhile the Rams offense was absolutely terrible, it’s not like the Patriots were that much better. That shouldn’t be a surprise considering this was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in NFL history.It wasn’t until midway through the fourth quarter that either team took a single offensive snap in the opponent’s red zone. It was the Patriots who made it to the red zone first (their only time, and the only team to do so) on the back of a 29-yard pass to TE Rob Gronkowski. That set up first and goal at the Rams 2-yard line. With a team led by all-time greats Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, and with future Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman, the lone touchdown of the game was a two-yard run from Sony Michel behind a lead blocking full back.No 80-yard bomb. No defensive scoop and score. No exciting kickoff return. No tackle-breaking scamper. Nope. A two-yard power run behind the fullback resulted in the only touchdown in the game.9 - Moment of futilityOne game after nailing a 57-yard field goal in overtime to send the Rams to the Super Bowl, Greg Zuerlein lined up to take a 48-yarder with little to no pressure on the kick. Sure, the kick was in the Super Bowl and not the Conference Championship game, but it was also almost ten yards shorter. Even still, it wouldn’t tie the game. The Rams would still have to recover a successful onside kick and score a touchdown (and kick the extra point) on a single Hail Mary play to end regulation after the field goal.Maybe Zuerlein was thinking too much about the ensuing onside kick attempt, but he flat-out missed the 48 yard field goal try that allowed the Patriots to go on and milk the remaining clock for the win.What could have likely gone down as just garbage time points for LA, the Rams couldn’t even kick a field goal to bring the deficit to a single possession.Yikes.10 - The halftime show was hot garbagePhoto by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesGone are the days of Prince and Michael Jackson tearing down the house at halftime of the Super Bowl.With the NFL’s top choices like Rihanna and Cardi B declining the invitation due to the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick, they were stuck with Maroon 5 as a fallback. In the city of Atlanta, known for its music scene, the NFL gave us Maroon 5. Not Ludacris, Usher, Outkast (though Big Boi did appear after Andre 3000 refused), Lil Jon, Migos, TLC, or even T.I. Maroon 5.And a falling Travis Scott.***There’s a reason Super Bowl LIII had the lowest viewership since 2009 when the Arizona Cardinals faced off against the Pittsburgh Steelers.It was a ten-year low for viewership of the Super Bowl.And the NFL absolutely deserved what they got.You could have had the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints. You should have had Drew Brees vs Tom Brady in a battle of future Hall of Famers.Instead you got the worst Super Bowl of all time.New Orleans Saints Triumphs: First Win in Franchise History We are only one month away from the official beginning of training camp for the 2018 New Orleans Saints. Veterans report to the facility on July 25th Womens Tyeler Davison 2019 Jersey , about a week after the team's rookies have already arrived. Fans of the team are bubbling with excitement, especially after the return to prominence of the Saints as a contender last season. While we anxiously wait for the 2018 version of the Saints to take the field, we look back today at one of the memorable moments from the team's 52-yr. old past, by continuing the Canal Street Chronicles Triumphs and Tragedies series of the New Orleans Saints. First Win in Saints HistoryThe date was November 5, 1967. The site was Tulane Stadium, home of the expansion New Orleans Saints, who were in their first year of existence. New Orleans had started their inaugural season off with a bang, when John Gilliam returned the first kickoff in franchise history for a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams in the opening game. The Saints went on to lose that game however, along with their next six, and entered the eighth game of their initial season 0-7, having yet to savor victory as a franchise. The team was coached by Tom Fears, but many of the veterans who were acquired by the team were well past their prime. Visiting the Saints that afternoon would be their Capitol Division opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles, coached by Joe Kuharich, would come into the game with a 4-3 record. They had one of the league's best passing attacks, led by quarterback Norm Snead and wideout Ben Hawkins. The Saints on the other hand, would wind up near the bottom of the 16 team NFL in nearly every NFL category. Veteran running back Jim Taylor, a future Hall of Famer, led the team in rushing but finished with just 390 yards. The team's best offensive production came from a receiver drafted in the 17th round, Danny Abramowicz. Defensively, future Hall of Fame defensive end Doug Atkins still had some effective play left, after being acquired in a trade with the Chicago Bears. Cornerback Dave Whitsell also came from Chicago, via the expansion draft, was the Saints defensive star and the team's first ever Pro Bowl selection in 1967. New Orleans gave up the number 1 overall draft pick to the Baltimore Colts for quarterback Gary Cuozzo to lead the team, but he could do no better than share time with veteran Billy Kilmer during the '67 season. The Saints began their 8th game the way they started their season White P.J. Williams Jersey , by taking the opening kickoff for a touchdown. Wideout Walter Roberts took the Eagles kick 91 yards for a 7-0 Saints lead, and the only score of the first quarter. Roberts, nicknamed "the Flea" because of his size (5'9, 163-lbs.) and elusiveness, had the afternoon of his career against Philadelphia. After the kickoff return, the only touchdown return of Roberts' career, he picked up a teammate's fumble and raced 27 yards for a second quarter score and a 14-0 New Orleans lead. The Eagles narrowed the gap with a field goal, and a Norm Snead scoring pass to Jim Kelly later in the quarter, but New Orleans took a 14-10 lead into the halftime break. After kicker Charlie Durkee widened the Saints lead with a 3rd quarter field goal Whitsell, who led the NFL with 10 interceptions on the year, picked off a Snead pass and took it back 41-yds. for a touchdown and a 24-10 New Orleans lead to begin the 4th quarter. Snead, who would throw for 292 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on the day, would hook up with Gary Ballman on a scoring pass to close the Saints lead to 24-17. New Orleans would respond when Roberts scored his third touchdown of the day, catching a 49-yd. scoring pass from Cuozzo on his only reception of the afternoon. A late scoring pass from Snead to Timmy Brown only made the final score respectable, as the New Orleans Saints gave their excited fans the first win in team history with a 31-24 victory. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThe Eagles would exact a bit of revenge two weeks later in a rematch against New Orleans, with a 48-21 rout in Philadelphia. The Saints would go on to win two more times in 1967, finishing their inaugural season with a 3-11 record. Cuozzo would eventually lose the starting quarterback job to Kilmer, and get dealt to the Minnesota Vikings after the '67 season, going down in memory as one of the worst trades in New Orleans history. Walter "Flea" Roberts would also leave the Saints after the 1967 season, finishing his final two years with the Washington Redskins. He be awarded the offensive player of the week for his performance against Philadelphia that afternoon. Flea Roberts would score just 11 touchdowns in a six year NFL career, but 3 of them on that special day on November 5th, 1967, as he helped the New Orleans Saints to the thrill of their first ever victory.
