Three more days until the Super Bowl. I have still not decided who I like. Mahomes is tough to bet against and since he became the starter, they have only lost three games by more than one score. One other loss was an end of season game when he did not play. On the other hand, the Eagles offensive line is awesome. They could really be able to run the ball and control the clock. My bias is leaning towards Mahomes but maybe my head should tell me to take the Eagles.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

  • No discussion of politics or religion
  • No feeding of the trolls
  • Leave the gender hatred at the door
  • Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
  • Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
  • No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
  • If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
  • While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
