  Snowmageddon 2015 will melt into history in a week or so. Deflategate unfortunately, will take a bit longer.  So let’s turn our attention to Super Bowl XLIX, or Super Bowl 49 for those of you who slept through Roman Numerals in elementary school.

Specifically, let’s turn our attention to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady because a long time will pass before we see another like him.

In case you haven’t had enough Super Bowl hype, here’s one more thing for New England fans to chew on: Roger Staubach, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback who was MVP of Super Bowl Vi in 1972, is predicting the Pats to defeat Seattle Sunday.

Staubach, who is now in the commercial real estate business as executive chairman of JLL, said in a news release that he expects a close game but that New England will emerge the winner.

The New England Patriots dominated the Indianapolis Colts Sunday despite the wind and rain at Gillette Stadium.  They won a commanding 45-7 victory in the American Football Championship. Next, they head to the Super Bowl, where they will face the Seattle Seahawks.  Seattle come off a from-the-behind win over the Green Bay Packers.
