It’s Super Bowl time again.

It’ll be New England Patriots vs. Philadelphia Eagles.

B-o-r-r-r-i-n-g!

Well, it seems like a coronation for the Patriots rather than a real game. They’re the winningest football team in history. They had been there nine times and won five times. It’s not surprising the odd makers favor them by 4.5 points as we speak.

People outside of New England are more likely rooting for the Eagles. They include everybody I had talked to during the past week. Blame it on what you call Patriot fatigue. They’re simply tired of seeing them compete in the Super Bowl. Perhaps it’s time to spread the wealth?

Although I live in California, my heart goes to the Patriots for the simple reason that its quarterback, Tom Brady, and wide receiver, Julian Edelman (lost for the season due to injury), are local boys.

But winning their sixth Lombardi Trophy will be tough against a very good defensive team. In 2017, the Eagles were ranked third against the run and seventh against the pass. I expect the Eagles to give the Patriots a run for their money. If they can go after Brady and sack him a few times, they will increase their chances of victory.

As I see it, it should be an interesting game to watch given its historical significance. Whether you like Belichick, Tom Brady and the Patriots or not, win or lose, we’ll never see another coach, quarterback and team like them in our lifetime again.
