Mahomes has completely bottled it from the end of the first half. Gotta fancy the Bengals now.Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

49ers 10 Rams 7
FT 17- 20
Garoppolo was rank in those last two drives, twice trying to catch Rams offside and backfiring big style
one dude gave away a 15 yard penalty for taunting, NFL players can be just as thick as football players huh
49ers Tartt dropping an easy interception which probably would have sealed a win, instead it led to the winning FG
anyway Rams v Bengals it is

The Brian Flores v pretty much everyone else lawsuit could be interesting.
Some serious allegations including being offered money to throw games (particularly when you consider Stephen Ross's involvement with at least one gambling company). Meeting a QB (I assume Watson) in breach of tampering rules and then being essentially blackballed when a deal wasn't done. Also a text (allegedly sent to Flores in error from Bill Belichick) congratulating another person on getting the Giants job before Flores even interviewed, I think the allegation here is the Rooney rule was breached and Flores was interviewed with no intention of being considered for the job.
He's essentially just thrown away any chance of another NFL coaching job as he will be as unwelcome as Colin Kapaernick from this day forward so he must feel aggrieved enough to take such a step. Even if a HC role wasn't forthcoming this year, a year as a coordinator or position coach would have seen him considered again next year.PM Awards General Poster of The Year 2015, 2016, 2017.

Kudos to the organisers for scheduling the Big Event tomorrow to coincide with Scottish half term :full marks:
What are we doing food wise this year? Iím doing enchiladas (chilli dogs were a big success last year but wanted to try something different) and the boy is lobbying for delivery pizza later.

My mums cousin is American and California based, also happens to be a big Rams fan from their original LA tenure so I'll be rooting for them albeit I won't be too disappointed if the Bengals do it.
Chicken wings and blue cheese dressing is always my go to on Superbowl night and I doubt I'll change it up too much. I am at Chop House for a late lunch/early dinner though so might be all meated out.

Being a long suffering Lions fan (family in Michigan) the Rams winning with Matt Stafford is about as near as the Lions will get to winning the Superbowl
Just hope its a good game, Im hoping to stay up but will probably just make it to half time (as per normal)

Tight start so far. Rams defence with the edge.Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Burrow gets sacked for the 6th time this game
make that a 7th, got a sore one on the knee this time
still 20-16 Bengals
2 min warning Rams have it 1st & goal, i think they're winning it this drive
bengals player holding oh dear, criminal, automatic 1st down again
and another defence penalty, they've really shot themselves in the foot here, won't be any time for burrow
and their it is TD Rams, FG is good 23-20 Rams
oh my Burrow sacked yet again, most sacked QB in the regular season and 8th time here
Rams win it, could have been so different, think it was 2nd and 1 and burrow threw a bizarre one to absolutely no one no wonder even one of his team screwed his face/shook his head in a WTF was that burrows manner

Currently at a Super bowl party in Florida with fellow Rams fans. Not many Rams fans though as most people here wanted Bengals win. What a nice feeling though Rams World Champions.

I donít really understand American Football at all but what has struck me since waking up this morning is that Iíve seen next to nothing about the actual game despite seeing hundreds of posts, pictures etc about the Super Bowl.
Iíve seen that The Rock done a speech, Iíve seen that Kanye West had his face completely covered, Iíve seen that OBJ wore $200k diamond encrusted boots, ive seen absolutely tons of stuff about the half time show, Iíve seen Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, Iíve seen a player proposing..
Is the actual sport just a total sideshow to all this stuff? I had to Google who actually won because it didnít seem like that information was forthcoming amongst the avalanche of information about celebrities.
Btw, I donít believe for a second that $200k diamond encrusted boots are designed for peak performance. If I was his manager heíd be getting told to get them changed pronto.

Well OBJ done his knee in half way through the game, so that doesn't say much about the boots.
We watched it on Gamepass last night for a change so it came with the full NBC broadcast including commercials. Totally different experience to watching it on BBC or Sky where there is loads of analysis between plays, whereas on the US coverage the game itself just gets lost in all the ad breaks, which are sometimes more entertaining than the game itself.

**** the rams, a fake franchise uncared for by their own home city

Can't say I enjoyed the game much. It was a great finale, but two pretty insipid teams. Felt for OBJ doing his knee - probably a lengthy period on the injury table if it's his ACL again. Refs definitely didn't cover themselves in glory - it was great that there were so few penalties throughout the game, but the missed facemask on Ramsey and then they non-call in the End Zone that let the Rams get to first and goal were dreadful.
Half time show wasn't my jam either - I get the basis for it (being in California) but it felt dated and a little cliched.Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

It was an interesting game with a lot of twists and a great ending, the entire first half the Bengals Oline held up pretty well, then they just seemed to implode and the Rams front four were all over Burrow. The Rams mortgaged their future on all these veteran free agents, congratulations to them but it doesnít feel like a real Ďteamí to me, I definitely see no signs of a legacy. Burrow needs a better line and a blocking scheme that doesnít leave him so exposed.

Bengals look as if they are building a decent team - if only they can protect their QB!
They were my second team when I started watching AF back when Channel 4 started showing it. Might retain my interest in the game whilst the Packers rebuild!!

Fairly obvious whatís going on. Yet again, the NFL responds to claims of racism by blacklisting individuals.
28-02-2022 05:02 PM #11880
Would also note that it's very rare for guys who get fired from a head coaching position (especially their first one) to get another HC job right away. Those guys are generally expected to go elsewhere and be a coordinator for a few years before trying again.
Him not getting a job as a DC does seem to suggest that he's at least been partially blacklisted.
I was wanting Flores back in NE, ideally as the DC but I guess BB is comfortable with Jerrod Mayo and Steve having the reins there.
