    The answer is so simple, I'm surprised nobody else figured it out.
    The color green is like Kryptonite to the Pats in a Superbowl game.
    Remember what color the Giants wore the two times they beat the Pats ???

    Caught with WEED? Before the Superbowl? ugh. Some people just are incapable of logical thought. he did not think smoking pot before the superbowl would not destroy his performance the next day?

    I don't think it's the smoking of weed that affects ones performance but the fact that if u get caught u could get suspended hence hurting your team. It's being responsible for your actions and being professional enough to avoid that crap til after the Superbowl

    Don't want to imply that I knew the future, but watching the 1st game of the season with a group that watches all the games, as the D was being shredded, I said, 'man our D needs to improve, D's win super bowls'. I think the D did improve somewhat, but I also think part of the reason we won many games is that we put up huge points quickly and forced other teams to just get into a mode that they needed to put up large points quickly. And just getting FGs for 3 pts at a whack don't cut it when Brady just put up back to back TDs and you are up by 14 in the 3d qtr. So bend don't break works great when you are up by 14.

    Truth be told, when you let up 41 points, your chances of winning are not so good even if you have superman a qb, batman at wr, and the hulk as a fb. This loss is all on our D. Not the missed kick, missed pass reception to Brady, etc.

    IMO, the Eagles played Patriot football better than the Patriots played it.

    Would it? I mean, aside from getting benched?

    I have first hand experience with 2 members of the NEP (both long since retired, but active at the time) smoking weed. It’s pretty common and not a big deal - until they get caught, apparently.

    The way the Pat's D was playing, not sure if it would have mattered.

    Now, the two TD scores where the ball was clearly moving around getting called back on top of that penalty may have had an impact. Who knows? Who cares? Eagles won. Onto 2018...

    LOL not sure if serious..... if the teams heavily enforced the NFL pot policy, at any one given time half the players would be suspended.

    i am not talking about normal day to day activities. Hey their bodies hurt, and they probably self medicate to live with it.

    I am talking the night before the superbowl toking up...that shit lasts in your system for a good 2 days, slowing down your reaction time.
