Another classic. This 538 tweet marked the point at which San Francisco had a 93.8% win probability.

I don't know whether Tom Brady should retire or not, but I definitely know that Richard Sherman should.

The Chiefs certainly represented the Great State of Kansas well, particularly in the last 10 minutes of the game.

Really? Find me a corner who can cover man to man for 15 seconds with Mahomes dropping 20 yards back to let receivers get open ... there aren't any in today's NFL. The 49ers defensive scheme is to press receivers at the line and get pressure on the QB. They did this well until Mahomes decided to take matters into his own hands. Not another QB in the league who can drop 20 yards back from scrimmage and hit receivers on the fly 55 yards away on the run. KC's offense is much better across the board when Mahomes is doing his thing on a broken play than they are executing the called play.

The Chiefs certainly represented the Great State of Kansas well Yes, weller than probably any other team from Kansas in history.

I wonder if they'll have hamberders and covfefe if the club visits the White House?

The biggest surprise in the commercials was the NFL ad that delivered the same message Colin Kaepernick took a knee for. How is he still blacklisted?

+1 @rcade!

Old backwards rich white owners want it that way.

Personally I think we should blacklist the owners and whitelist Kaep.
