Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 21, 2018

The Eagles demolished the Vikings 38-7 and booked their third trip to the Super Bowl in franchise history, and first since the 2004 season. In Minneapolis on Feb. 4, they will meet the Patriots, who earlier on Sunday beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship Game.

Great ending! Our man-cave was bummed for over 2 hours cause Pats looked so bad. Even BB cheered, laughed, and put his hands in the air---all 3 are way out of character for that grouch.

Fingers crossed for SB!

Brady was Brady, sore thumb and all. The Jags are a young, emotional team that seem to lose focus after two defensive penalties put the Patsies back in the game.

Danny Amendola is a great story; undrafted out of Tex Tech in 2008, he was signed by the 'Boys, put on their practice squad, and then was on the same squads for Philly and the Rams. He had a death-defying injury before being signed by the Pats.

btw, watching the Iggles beat up a good Viking team is not my idea of fun.

I'm going to skip the Brady knobslobbing fest in 2 weeks.
The NFL won't allow the Eagles to win this game. Expect the Eagles to get a Super Bowl XL* like screwing by Rog's Henchmen in the stripes.

Why do I get the feeling Goodell is in cahoots with Kraft???

The Vikings didn't even show up. Never changed their game plan even after losing key players to injuries early. Zimmer should be fired.

The Rams had a good game. I think Jared Goff had his best game of the post season. Anyway, looking forward to a Ram blowout of the Patriots in 2 weeks. My prediction: Rams by 17.

Of course not, with Romper Room re-runs at the time no one would expect you to watch.

"As the great philosopher Taylor Swift once said, "The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate."

And there's no stronger, more intense -- and more irrational -- hater in all of sports than the Patriots hater. It's next-level stuff.

Hosting radio and television shows, I hear all the hate. LeBron hate. Duke hate. Yankees hate. But there's nothing quite as deep and rich as Patriots hate. It's toxic. It's over-the-top. And you know what it is fueled by? That would be insane jealously.

I'm here to help you, Patriots hater. You love sports, right? In fact, you're obsessed. But a certain football team makes your blood boil. This column can be your elixir. Take a deep breath and take these words to heart.

Less than two weeks before Super Bowl LII, here's my advice on how to experience and process another NFL season ending with the New England Patriots hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. (Yes, you read that correctly.)

Bill Belichick was once fired by the Cleveland Browns. When he resigned as the "H.C. of the NYJ" after one day on the job to go to the Patriots, the move was widely criticized. Meanwhile, Tom Brady was a sixth-round pick in the 2000 NFL Draft -- No. 199 overall, to be exact.

Now Belichick is the best coach in NFL history. I'd argue he's the best coach in the history of sports. Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, the GREATEST NFL PLAYER EVER (sorry, Jerry Rice and Jim Brown).

I'm still giving that one to Scotty Bowman.

I give it to John Wooden.

#16 Wishful thinking on your part. Better prediction is cars will be torched on the streets of Philly.

It's not hate when the same thing happens every playoff game that the Pats are in. Towards the last half of the 4th quarter, if the Pats look like they might lose then here come the refs to make sure they win. 6 minutes left in the game and of course the Jaguars get a bogus call that skews the entire game for New England. Hell, if the refs could call penalties on sure sacks, the Pats would have gone to the SB when Denver beat them. Luckily, the one thing the refs can't do is make up a penalty. They can interpret them however they want but they can't make them up.
