On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Nick Bosa nursed his injured hamstring and missed practice and is questionable for today’s game at Levi Stadium.

#2 Receiver Deebo Samuel was trying to recover from his deep thigh bruise he did play against the Miami Dolphins last Sunday what are his chances for today?

#3 Quarterback Brock Purdy brought his A game against the Dolphins and it was good enough for a 49ers win against one of the toughest teams in the NFL. Purdy came in with swagger was pumped up on good plays for his future do you see him being a team leader and a winner?

#4 Joe, Brock looks well prepared and with Bosa in the line up today how do you see the 49ers going up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-6) without them?

#5 The Bucs quarterback Tom Brady and the offense did not score in eight series and scored twice in the next three series enough to defeat the New Orleans Saints. Which team are the Buccaneers the team that struggled to get on the scoreboard or the team that can get things done under pressure?

Brady claims 7th ring, Bucs rout KC in Super Bowl LV 31-9

Different uniform, same results.

After winning six NFL championships with New England, Tom Brady added a seventh ring to his collection Sunday after leading Tampa Bay past Kansas City 31-9 in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

Brady was also selected as the game’s most valuable player, his fifth overall, breaking a tie with Joe Montana. The 43-year-old signal caller completed 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns – two of them to his old Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski and the other to Antonio Brown.

Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones combined for 150 rushing yards, and assistant Todd Bowles’ defensive game plan effectively shut off the Chiefs’ passing lanes and kept KC off balance throughout the game. Bucs linebacker Devin White racked up 12 tackles, plus an interception late in the fourth quarter.

Kansas City didn’t help itself by being flagged 10 times for 110 penalty yards, and the Chiefs were 3 of 13 on third down conversions.

After Kansas City jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first quarter on a 52-yard Harrison Butker field goal, the Buccaneers responded with an 8-yard TD pass from Brady to Gronkowski. At 6:05 of the second quarter, Brady found Gronkowski for a 17-yard scoring strike.

Butker booted a 34-yard field goal with 1:01 left in the second quarter, but the Bucs found the end zone with six seconds left in the half on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Brown. The Buccaneers led 21-6 at halftime.

Early in the third quarter, Butker’s third field goal – a 52-yarder – pulled the Chiefs to within 21-9. Tampa Bay finished the scoring when Fournette ran in from 27 yards out midway through the third quarter, and with 2:46 to go in the quarter, Ryan Succop tacked on a 52-yard field goal.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was held to 270 yards 26 of 49 passes, was intercepted twice and sacked three times. It was the first time he didn’t throw a touchdown pass in a game since Sept. 29, 2019, against Detroit in a 34-30 win over the Lions.

The Weekend performed at halftime, and the National Anthem was sang by country singer Eric Church and R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan. H.E.R. performed “America The Beautiful” in the pregame ceremonies.

Super Bowl LV podcast with Jessica:

#1 Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes says that he’s not focusing on Tom Brady’s record of ten Super Bowl appearances and six Super Bowl championships but just a chance to win his second Super Bowl.

#2 Mahomes said that every time he hits the field his mindset is on winning the game and the goal is to win as many Super Bowls as possible.

#3 From the looks of it that has been Brady’s accomplished goal and for Mahomes he’s been staying very consistent with the kind of games that he’s been having as the Chiefs finished the regular season with a 15-2 record and first in the AFC Conference.

#4 Jessica this will be the first time that a Super Bowl team will play host on their home field. The closest that ever came was when the San Francisco 49ers played the Miami Dolphins in 1985 and the game was at Stanford Stadium but not quite the home stadium. This has to be pretty special for the Buccaneers to host this game.

#5 Practice has looked well for both teams as the prepare for Super Bowl Sunday. The Vegas line has the Chiefs by three in what is expected to be a razor close game.

Super Bowl LV podcast with London Marq: Players enjoy week away from media days; Brady oldest player to play in Super Bowl

A jubilant Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady after defeating the Green Bay Packers on Sun Jan 24, 2021 in the NFC Championship will be the oldest player to play in a Super Bowl in NFL history (for the file photo)

On Headline Sports with London:

#1 London not having in person media days does take away the media’s opportunities to get in person perspectives from Super Bowl players in a socially distanced situation like this?

#2 On the other hand it’s safe to say the players certainly won’t miss doing media days and sitting and meeting with the press in person during Super Bowl week.

#3 Tom Brady at age 43 quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will break the all time NFL record for the oldest player to play in a Super Bowl what does that have to mean for Brady?

#4 Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has set up defensive plays against Brady before when he was with the New England Patriots do you see his play calls being different against Brady since he’s now with Tampa Bay or Spagnuolo will execute plays based on knowing Brady’s habits?

#5 This game will be played in front of only 22,000 fans a limited amount of fans because of social distance concerns. The NFL wanted the Super Bowl to be played with some people in the stands so they can get some real crowd noise in stadium as opposed to piped in sound.

That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary: Super Bowl LV, The Great One vs. The Cool One

Super Bowl LV: The Great One vs. The Cool One

That’s Amaury News and Commentary

By Amaury Pi-González

Super Bowl LV is ready for a great match-up of quarterbacks between The Great One, Tom Brady of Tampa Bay Buccaneers champions of the NFC, future Hall of Famer and The Cool One, Patrick Mahomes of the AFC Champion and reigning NFL Champions Kansas City Chiefs.

No team has repeated as Super Bowl champion since the 2003-04 Tom Brady’s New England Patriots, who are currently tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers with six Super Bowl wins. The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers are the only other franchises with at least five Lombardi Trophies. Two Quarterbacks for the Ages, Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes

The Great One: Brady, His style is solely about what wins games. If that means throwing the ball less, he will do that. If it means giving it to his running back more often, he will execute that also. If he needs to pass, he still has a very powerful and accurate arm to do the job.

When he turned 40 years of age, he was the oldest QB to start in Super Bowl history, back in Super Bowl LII, when he surpassed Payton Manning, when the Patriots faced the Eagles. Now he is 43 and he still doing it.

Brady was as drafted as a baseball catcher at Serra High School in San Mateo, California, also attended by NFL Hall of Famer Lynn Swann as well as baseball’s Barry Bonds, Jim Fregosi and Gregg Jefferies, among others.

Tom Brady in Super Bowl’s is Número Uno: First all time in the following – QB to start in three different decades: 2000’s, 2010’s, and 2020’s. Ten Starts. Most pass completions 256. Most passing yards in history 2,838. Most pass Touchdowns 18 with New England and most SB wins with six; last time he won a SB was in 2017.

The Cool One: Mahomes: All-around athlete. He can throw it for a touchdown or he can run it into the end-zone to score. Very quick, can and will throw from different positions, different arm angles, can throw the football sidearm.

There is little he cannot do at his age of 25. He plays with great style and flair when he was 23 he became the second African-American quarterback to win the NFL MVP award. This season he threw for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Only QB in history to throw over 5,000 yards in a season in both, college at Texas Tech and in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs. He owns the largest contract (moneywise) in US sports, history. Ten-years with Kansas City worth $503 million.

In the world, only one athlete has a bigger contract, Argentinean-born Lionel Messi of the FC Barcelona (Soccer) of La Liga in Europe. $4 years $674 million, Who will win, Great or Cool? Not getting into the weeds, both of these teams and quarterbacks are championship caliber.

However, if it is between Great and Cool, I am afraid I will take Great 9 of out 10 times. When: Sunday, February 7, 2021 – Where: Raymond James Stadium, aka “Ray-Jay” Tampa, Florida.– Seating capacity: 65,618, with 22,000 expected to be in attendance, 7,500 of those are health care workers who were given a free ticket by the NFL. They all had received a covid-19 vaccine.

Announcers: Play by Play- Jim Nantz. Commentary – Tony Romo… Time: 3:30 Pacific Coast time CBS will use 120 cameras. Thirty-seconds of advertising approximately $5.5 million one of the most watched annual sporting events in the world, the NFL’s championship game is broadcast in over 130 countries in more than 30 languages.

Fly Over: Three (3) Air Force bombers to perform first ever trifecta for National Anthem. The planes: All in one of Super Bowl 55: B-52+ B-2+B-1 = 55! Half Time Show. The Weekend will perform.

Firsts: First time a team participating in the Super Bowl (Tampa) plays at their regular season stadium. Super Bowl that is played during a Pandemic. Those three Air Force Bombers do a flyover. Sarah Thomas first female Super Bowl official.

Tie breaker: The AFC has won the Super Bowl 27 times and the NFC has won the Super Bowl 27 times. Why do Super Bowl games have Roman numerals?. Lamar Hunt, Kansas City Chief Founder, is also credited for introducing Roman numerals to keep track of the championship title bowls.

Roman numerals are an ancient numeric system where numbers are represented by symbols. Developed around 500 B.C. as the Romans conquered most of the world that was known to them. Their numeral system spread throughout Europe, where for centuries if was their primary way of representing numbers. Happy Super Bowl!

Stay well and stay tuned.

That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary podcast: How tight are the A’s?; Who do you like in Super Bowl LV?

Oakland A’s outfielder Mark Canha seen here slugging a double against the Seattle Mariners on Sun Sep 27, 2021 at the Oakland Coliseum  says the clubhouse will be a lot different without former A’s infielder Marcus Semien around (file photo AP News photo)

On That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary podcast:

#1 In a recent interview with NBC Sports Oakland A’s outfielder Mark Canha said that the impact of losing Marcus Semien will be felt and his presence will be lost in the clubhouse.

#2 Canha said that when he and Semien first came to the A’s in 2015 the clubhouse culture at that time was veterans ran the clubhouse and the rookies and younger players were expected to keep quiet and follow along.

#3 After some time Semien was instrumental in changing the clubhouse culture and was a positive presence and younger players and rookies were inclusive to say what was on their minds.

#4 There has been heavy criticism about the A’s letting pitcher Liam Hendriks and Marcus Semien that the organization is cheap and won’t spend the money. Critics feel that the team is less competitive without them. How does this image bode going into the pre season this month?

#5 Turning to the NFL and Super Bowl LV: A lot of anticipation Amaury is riding on this Sunday’s Super Bowl LV with two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks going head to head. For the Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes and for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady in a game that could be one for the ages.
