They aren't getting middled on the Super Bowl.I think the media talking about how the Rams don't deserve to be there is only going to motivate LA. But facing a team that's been there for the 3rd year running and the greatest HC and QB of all time, is more what's pushing people to the Pats.
They have intangibles you cannot properly cap against. Shocked the line is still this low TBH.
Not to mention a little luck in the AFC champ game.
Dee Ford lining up 4inches offside - Pats got lucky or Ford fucked up? I'd hardly consider a routine offsides luck for the other team.
Edelman debacle - Would have been more luck for KC had Edelman muffed a routine punt return. They got the review correct, non-factor.
Roughing the passer call - Bad calls happen against every team but I'll give you that one. The timing was unfortunate for KC for sure.
Coin flip - 52% of teams who get the ball first win. See Rams/Saints game. Maybe make a stop on one of three 3rd & 10's. That had nothing to do with Pats "luck".
Obviously small sample size and one could argue that Rams should be 2-2 lol. Beating Rosey isn‘t an accomplishmentThis season in DOMES:
Avg 30.5 ppg
35-45 loss Saints
30-16 win Lions
31-9 win Cards (not sure if roof was closed)
26-23 (OT) win Saints
10-26 loss Lions
Pats should simply complain. Look what complaining bought the Rams
That & Pats don't ever blow anyone out in the SB. I won't play it but would endorse Rams/over tease for sure. I'd personally wait though. I think an extra point to the Rams side would be more valuable versus if you lost one to the over by waiting.In the last 8 years(CBA deal, and passing rules adjusted-more importantly) there have only been two Super Bowls where the winning team has won by more than 10 points. In both of those situations, the #1 defense won(Denver 24-10 vs Carolina and Seattle 43-8 vs Denver) Rams teaser looks enticing given this info....
Excellent postPosted this in the wrong thread earlier:
Biggest part of the game in my opinion, is whether or not the Rams can get pressure with Donald and Suh up the middle....Brady has struggled before with pressure up the middle and when he's forced off his spot. Answer that question, and you have the winner of the game.
The fact Brady hasn't seemingly been touched all postseason(sans the horrible Roughing the Passer call), is very impressive vs a strong Chargers D-Line, and a blitzing team(didn't do that enough) in KC.
Rams Rush D allows the 8th most yards on the ground to RB's in the league, while being 4th best in receiving yards to RB's. I would venture to guess New England's game plan would be similar to their game vs. the Chiefs.
Rams D vs. the TE is second worst in the league, allowing 1075 yards to Tight Ends....Gronk should go out in style...
Do you think MCVAY has read WOMEN are FROM MARS...MEN are FROM VENUS? EMOTIONS! DAMN THEM!Mcvay is too emotional- When he tried the desperate fake punt vs the Saints i realized right there the Rams were jokers-- They are not champs-- You cannot make emotional decisions like that-
One Super Bowl by 4 points haha. I think that was the famous Russell Wilson throwing at the one-yard line.The one time I’d say it’s not a bad idea to be against the pats is when you can get a fg or better in the SB. Other than the ot td vs atl how often do pats win the sb by more than a fg?
Exactly. Even the few they have covered -3 they weren’t exactly the “right” side.One Super Bowl by 4 points haha. I think that was the famous Russell Wilson throwing at the one-yard line.
I wouldn’t wanna be on them at less than 3 but I think fg or better they the only playable side..could’nt argue w anyone taking pats under a fg, 3 or higher not a good idea imo. experience obviously a little worrisome but I think hearing for 2 weeks how they “don’t deserve” to be here cause of one call should serve rams well.Never but the fact that the Pats have a big enough sample size to be able to make that statement should be worrisome for some Rams backers.
There def be some offense and I’d agree most likely more after halftime.No doubt the Rams defense will be the most underrated unit on the field with both offenses and NE defense being so highly regarded, although defenses will (or should) be neutralized somewhat by the fast track in ATL as the offense always has the advantage with cutting and knowing where the ball is going. Certainly expect there to be plenty of points, hopefully moreso in the 2h
wouldn’t it stand to reason that surface is prob beneficial to pass rushers as well?Not just dome but field turf compared to grass...only reason I take AZ out of the equation at times because it's natural grass
As I mentioned, my belief is the offense always has the advantage (not just football, not just surface) because they know where the ball is going. Turf just speeds the game up and while it obviously does for both, there's a reason indoor teams notoriously score more. It's why I threw that dome record up for this season, while it's size may be deemed inconsequential, it at least shows what this year's versions of these teams did.wouldn’t it stand to reason that surface is prob beneficial to pass rushers as well?
Obviously it wouldn’t shock me if another video gm broke out but ultimately I think even if both offenses having their way to a extent we would see several of those 7-8 min variety drives. Feel like some of those more likely to end in fgs than they were in kc simply cause of personnel and coaching of rams.
