    Donald and Kupp win that for the Rams. Unreal. Great game, tense near enough every play.

    Gutted that’s another season in the book.

    Donald deserves it.

    Rams fans are the worst though. Win a championship at home and it’s like a polite applause.

    Kupp, OBJ, Stafford, Ramsey, Donald, Weddle and Whitworth all deserve a ring. Good in them.

    Wasn't a great game, but we were probably spoiled by the divisional round and the championships.
    Chase has obviously turned out to be the right pick in the draft, but the Bengals need to upgrade the o-line this offseason. They were comparing him to Namath on the broadcast... Going to end up with half a knee like ol' Broadway Joe if he keeps getting sacked at this rate.
    Chuffed for most of the Rams players but can't avoid the feeling last year's Bucs and this year's rams are ushering in an era of NBAesque free agent super teams in the NFL.

    Off to fall into post NFL depression until the draft!

    I get what you mean, but I feel like it’s way harder to pull off a super team in the NFL.

    NBA you can have 3 or 4 top guys and then fill the roster with smaller contracts. NFL obviously have much bigger rosters and moving parts.

    You’ll always have a Von Miller joining a contender to get his ring. But thankfully there’s other teams doing the same that can match them. There won’t ever be one stand out. There’s always a great mix of home grown drafted guys with a couple big hitters brought in. I think it’ll always be the most competitive sport for me.

    Yeah, I suppose the fear I have as that it creates an incentive for players to force their way out of teams and sign for a contender. Ok, OBJ wasn't being used well in Cleveland but by acting up and getting his dad calling out his QB online he forced the browns to cut him and then he had a free choice of contenders. Find that very different to Stafford and von Miller who got their original teams considerable draft capital.

    Best Superbowl of the past four years, imo. When the Chiefs won it was good, but that felt like it could've went either way. That block at the end from Aaron Donald was immense and I loved his celebration.

    Credit to the Rams for winning it all but also credit to the Bengals for an incredible playoff run and coming so close despite being the underdog in basically ever game bar the first one against The Raiders. Makes me feel better about the Raiders going out in that wildcard game against the Bengals too as it was a decent close game and then look at what the Bengals were able to do after. Hopefully a positive sign that the Raiders can build on a decent 10-7 season and a respectable wildcard performance.
