Supe (Eventually To Nuts) Notes

January 27, 2021

The great Tom Brady will be playing in his tenth Super Bowl. In the previous nine, all with the New England Patriots, his record in such games is (6-3).

He is (1-0) with the upcoming game’s announcer, “Pooh” Nantz, Greg Gumbel and the great Pat “Super” Summerall, whose clutch long field goal for the Giants that set up all that was 1958, was recalled by Jesse last week.

In other Supes, Brady was (2-1) with Joe Buck, but just (1-2) with “Alfalfa” Michaels.

The other 7 losses dealt to Brady in post-season (he has won it all 6 times, lost in the ‘offs 11 times and failed to make the ‘offs twice, only once in a season in which he played more than one game) were “administered” in Nantz games. (wild card round losses, 10 years apart in ’09 and ’19, the 2 slots/div. round losses (Brady’s teams are 14-2 in such, (see the Yankees’ winning the pennant 14 of 16 seasons, (’49-’64), in ’05 and ’10 and 4 title tilts (’06, ’12, ’13 and ’15).

The Chiefs have beaten original AFL teams in the game that gave them entry to the Supe, all four times they made it. After topping the Raiders and Titans nee Oilers, 50 years apart in ’69 and 2019, they won it all. This is the second time K.C. has topped Buffalo to gain a Super Bowl berth.

In 1966, after beating the Bills by 24 points to gain a berth to the first Supe, Green Bay eased vs the Chiefs (35-10). Days back, they won by 14, allowing the Bills 24 points. The Chiefs/Bills “semi” winner also lost in the subsequent Super Bowl, when the Cowboys repeated their ’92 season Supe win vs the Bills in 1993.

Meanwhile the Buccaneers, in their two Supe appearances have respectively beaten an Andy Reid coached team (the ’02 Eagles) and now will face a Reid coached defending champion Chiefs’ team in the 55th Super Bowl.
