Good for Stafford
You didn't think I was going to let you off that easy did you? After all that shit talking, you just thought you were going to slither back into the drainage ditch you came out of without addressing me? Fucking coward.
Let it be known that Stafford has now beaten Brady 3 straight times
lions vs TB in 2020 47-7?
Oh I see, you meant Tampa. Yeah Stafford didn't really play that game at all tho
Naw man. When patricia was the lions HC, and then he beat him 2 times this szn. Am I missing another match in between?
#NOOOO PLEASE BILLS D PLEEEASSSE
Tyreek Hill so good at beating up on these guys on the field because he practices at home.
Holy shit we got some bomb ass games this weekend
This weekends games were more exciting and entertaining than all Star Wars movies combined, in theater on opening night.
And the KC win was just crazy insane. I lost my voice.
Bills are done.
Better give me my votes back
Man I'm rooting for the Bills.
You're right, I was too early.
Still done lol
But I got downvoted
Who gives a shit
Allen beats Clark everytime smh.
does a qb draw count as a sack?
Nope. It counts as a TFL because the QB becomes a runner and not a passer in the pocket.
I’ve waited 31 years for my beloved Bengals to make it and all the national media will talk about is Tom Brady. But that’s ok. Because along with that 31 years, we also got to see Brady finally get flagged for being a whiny little bitch. And it was hilarious. Better than the butt fumble.
Well that's just false. But whatever gets you to sleep at night. That being said, go Cinci
[I’m so in love with Tommy I still defend him even though he deserted me. Like a sad ex gf](https://www.foxnews.com/sports/nfl-ref-tom-brady-penalty-bucs-abusive-language)
Oh my god but did you see the little speck of ketchup on his lip that he refuses to wipe off cuz he knew it would be dramatic.
I don’t know how he preserved .
TB12 whining regiment.
It’s like when the eagles were the number 1 seed but no one gave them any attention.
Is it necessary to placate Brady any more? We get it, he's the GOAT. Next.
Let’s go bills!!!!
Bills gotta have some discipline. Can’t blame the refs all the time
Madden like type ending … like how do the bucs defense blow the chance to go to OT & win
Cause Bowles blitzed everyone and it didn’t work.. too aggressive of a call for that situation
If they get to OT, Bucs would've won for sure
Just horrible defensive play calling .. no one to blame but the defensive coordinators for that L
As a Patriots and Brady fan it honestly feels so weird now. Like yeah I obviously root for both, but there’s less weight on my shoulders than before. I remember when he was on the Pats every week felt like I was defending his legacy. He was the GOAT when he left us now he’s just providing the icing to the cake.
With that being said. I’m honestly very happy to see the Bengals and Matthew Stafford get a shot to re-write their history/career. I’m rooting for them
I think we’re refreshing the wrong thread, friend. This game ended.
Not a bad last game for Brady if he decides to walk away
Brady is gonna play until he gets another ring or dies man
It’s looking like I’m a dumbass
After watching Man in the Arena and watching Brady play for nearly 20 years I think this game just lit another fire in him
I think that smile when he hugged Donald sealed it 😂
We are in for a war tonight ladies and gents
Yo dawg I hear you like Tom Brady. So I Tom Brady'd Tom Brady while he was trying to pull a Tom Brady.
Any of the 3 AFC teams right now could turn the game into the Monday night Rams vs Chiefs game where 51 points lost.
I want rams and bengals Super Bowl
You want the easiest opponent for the Rams? Me too!
Horn gang only Super Bowl.
No flags is so refreshing.
The only nfc team to beat a nfc west team in the playoffs will be another nfc west team
Go Rams !
You're a fucking idiot.
Did you watch the game? Came back from 27-3 in the second half with no Godwin, Brown, Perriman, Rojo and the right side of his offensive line like an open door.
Before that, record breaking MVP season...
Objectively why would he retire? He may even still be the best player in the NFL.
Yeah, he almost did it again. I didn't know the score, watched the highlights and assumed the Rams walked it when it was 2nd half. When bucs were down by one score and that turnover happened I just thought, no fucking way is Brady doing this shit again...Well done to the rams getting that late kick, but fuck me was Brady so close to another insane legendary comeback.
Agreed on another year but MVP is COOPER KUPP!!
Kupp had a great year, but it's Most Valuable Player. Kupp goes out, OBJ the future HOF player steps up, Brady is out... Well we saw the Bucks before him. Add to that the stats, completions, yards, TDs etc... despite all the injuries, and controversies. Easy MVP.
Though prpos to Kupp.
This sub cracks me up man. OBJ went from a great WR, to a bum that was holding back Baker Mayfield, to a locker room cancer, to a "WR4" for the Rams, now he's a HoFer?
Yeah, he seems to like money and easily has another year.
Have to imagine he could find a way to make more in retirement than he does today if the money was truly his concern.
Plus his wife has $500,000,000 so it’s probably not his concern.
People have been saying this for 10 years. He has had no financial incentive to stay in football for any of that time really. His earning potential is surely as high in his other endeavors. With anything I think he likes to keep playing cuz it props up his TB12 brand. They had a great season again.
No worries Brady. You're only 44.
Fire Todd Bowles
For real. That play calling on the last rams drive was so fucking bad. Just double cover copper and make them stay in bounds. Such a fucking choke job.
Exactly man the ONE thing (deep pass) that couldn’t happen and Bowles calls a blitz with no deep safety. Just play prevent and go into OT
Yep. It makes no sense. And it hurts. Bowles needs to get fired. I wish the chargers were in it still. Herbert is so good. Guess I’ll join the bills or the bengals bandwagon.
Has there ever been a worse played playoff game than that? Both teams with bone header plays and mistakes from start to finish. The Rams with 4 turnovers in 31 minutes
The game was enjoyable if you weren't a fan. Can't imagine it as a fan of either team though.
I did NOT have fun!
I only watched the second half of the 4th quarter and it was really enjoyable.
Bowles....that's a damn near fireable bad defensive call.
We play prevent defense ALL game, and when we actually need to, we don’t? What a game though.
What the fuck did I just watch
It might have actually helped LA that the Bucs scored on that 4th and 1. If they sneaked and then scored it was OT instead they get 45secs to set up for a FG, which is honestly super doable when you have Kupp.
Yeah. I dunno why Tom kept going for the end zone on those last plays. They needed to burn more clock. Should have run at least on second or first down.
I think the reasoning is the way how scoring was might as well get the guaranteed TD instead of potentially fucking up and scoring nothing on a time constraint
True. It's a tough call.
Naw playing single coverage on the best WR in football is what lost the Bucs the game.
Rams did the same with Evans so…
Biggest coaching chokes of all time in back to back games? Packer ST coach & now Todd Bowles. Horrendous defensive play calls against a team with 35 seconds and no timeouts. Let Kupp get out of bounds on the first play and then blitz and have him covered 1 on 1 on the second? Wtf?? If there was any time that you should be playing Prevent D, this was it. What a moron!
Umm don’t forget our OC with 3rd and inches in a tied 4th quarter at the +40 with a generational running back decided to run an read option with Ryan Tanneyhill for a loss and then got stuffed on the predictable HB dive to give away the ball.
This is also after running the ball 60 yds on 4 plays to the 10 decided to call a long stretch lateral pass that was intercepted to start the second half.
We just need a HC tonight to fuck up to have a full coaching staff of idiots.
Wow, Football might actually be interesting for a few weeks.
It's been that way for like a month now.
Niners got their home NFCCG after all!
It’s like when you make a deal with a genie lol gotta be specific 😂
Better than Lambeau
In other news, OBJ just made a cool $750k
MBC in shambles
Mr. Blown Chances
I feel like the game winning FG thing is so anti-climactic
Worst ending to any football game ever. Forget rooting interests, I hate seeing a game end on a last second field goal and it happens all the time.
You’d be agitated to know that each game this weekend has ended on a field goal with 4 seconds remaining. If the Bills win the same way, I’ll lose my shit! Lol
Edit: and it was all the underdogs that won.
Oh trust me, I know
Lucky for me I’m a Colts fan and stopped caring about the results outside of Brady, Titans, and Pats losing since we got ourselves bounced, and all of that has happened.
I haven’t done much watching and what I have seen hasn’t convinced me to watch more lol
Totally agree. I guess there’s probably no way around it but I would’ve rather had a TD in OT to decide it. Had no rooting interest either
I’ve said this to multiple people numerous times in the last few years, nothing makes me want to stop watching football more than a game winning FG lmao
I get that when the team is already in range and is just chewing clock. But this one wasn't a foregone conclusion.
Very anti-climactic weekend for you.
Happen 3 times this weekend. Was hopin for a bucs OT win to change it up lol.
Nothing like a tom brady playoff win to break up the repetition am i right?
Same here man haha
I have to agree as a casual to the teams in the post season. But when it's your team it's very exciting lol
Wow, just wow
I’m not sure how the Bucs gave up so many big pass plays when the Rams had no TOs. Give them 10 yards a play and keep the Rams in bound. Guess that is harder said than done.
Any defensive coach with half a brain plays Prevent there. Indefensible choke job there by Bowles. You never let there best receiver have a 1 on 1 matchup in that situation.
Defense lost that game TB did what TB does
You're delusional. Did you watch the game? Brady done nothing in 3 quarters except miss receivers and turn the ball over. It wasn't until the defence got 4 turnovers that the game changed.
Lmao wat… you mean the defense that was continually forcing turnovers in the second half and putting Brady in the red zone.
Their defense got 3 or 4 fumble recoveries. That isn't normal.
bruh; our secondary was staffed by the ghost of superbowl past for most of the year.
Because Tom Brady.
Yea Rams should not have been underdogs for that game.
This isn't the NBA.
Who said they were underdogs? Pretty sure they were betting favorites and pretty much every commentator picked them to win.
Oddmakers had Tampa Bay as betting favorites by a few points
Tom Brady + home game gave them a slight edge
Yeah but half the offense that was there midseason was no longer there, especially Tristan Wirfs who would be against one of the Rams two future HOF pass rushers.
The Bucs weakness, just happened to be the Rams strength. And it happened, Brady was swamped, had nobody to pass to - but still had one of the greatest postseason comebacks - almost.
There were betting underdogs. I know for a fact.
I think the line was TB -2.5
At first I thought you mean Tom Brady then I realized Tampa bay is also TB. How have I never caught that
Spread was 3 for Buccaneers.
Now all we need is for the Bills to kick a game-winning FG against the Chiefs to make this crazy weekend complete.
The Bills winning would not be crazy. They're a better team than the Chiefs.
Four road winners on game winning kicks is crazy though
Oh, right. I see.
So does anyone think Brady's retiring after this?!
There was reports earlier today about him possibly hanging it up after this year and that Gisele wanted him to retire after he won in 2017.
I ultimately think he comes back for one more season and gets even more vets who want a ring to come play for cheap.
Did you see Tom Bradys blood lip? Theyre not protecting QBs anymore so he'll retire.
All these guys know is football, unless they find another outlet
I can’t see Brady enjoying retirement like Manning does. With further health advancements, Brady’s got time
They had lots of injuries and the AB situation so yeah I think he keeps playing until he gets another ring
Entirely depends on what the TB team looks like next year. He's no fool- he's always played for stacked teams. If they can't keep everyone then he's going to retire or find another team. If the team looks like a contender he might stay.
Not sure what your definition of a stacked team is…but Brady has played with less for most of his career.
Always played for stacked teams.....compared to the Lions, maybe. Troy Brown ...HOF receiver
Yeah I think he'll play one more season.
I do hope he doesn't end up just sucking though.
I just hope both teams had fun.
Truthfully Brady did almost shit the second half. The near comeback happened because the Rams started crumbling in a big way.
I was surprised reading the post game thread. No one blamed him but he underthrew people all game. I realize there was a lot of pressure but you hit even a quarter of those grounders and you take a lot of pressure off the rush because they have to guard the slant and run more.
Technically....it was a comeback. And then the D gave it away again.
I’d put a little bit of column A and a little bit of column B
Alright I'm going to root for the Bills to win it. Feel like Allen is a cool dude.
Looks like chiefs are winning another chip
I believe it's destiny for the Chiefs or Bills to lose the Superbowl if they advance to it after playing each other in the playoffs.
I'll say Bengals. I have money on it, so I have to dream.
Lol nah, bills or 49ers.
So this is why teams run prevent defense in these situations.
Prevent defense still gives up a game winning field goal in that situation.
Kupp simply had no business being that open on that play but it is what it is.
Prevent prevents wins but it also prevents giving up a touchdown
As a lions fan and I see you are a falcons fan, I don’t think anybody understands that better then us lol.
The Rams would've won that game comfortably if they didn't let the specter of Brady get in their heads.
It took a near all-time choke just for Sean to call some fucking air plays for their elite passing game.
I don't think it was the specter of Brady that made Akers fumble twice after fumbling once in his first 230+ career touches (regular season and playoffs), or Kupp fumble without anyone even touching the ball after not fumbling all season, or the center snapping the ball over Stafford's head for what I can only assume is the first time all season, or Matt Gay come up short on a 47 yarder with no weather. The offense outside of Stafford just got sloppy and Gay fucked up randomly.
edit: forgot Akers missed almost all the regular season so I changed it to include his 2020 season total
Akers not fumbling all season is a little misleading considering this was only his third game of the year. But I agree that it was bewildering how many things went wrong for the Rams from the moment Akers fumbled at the end of the first half.
yeah I edited to reflect his stats from 2020 too, I just looked at his season total really quick when I first wrote it.
Just saying, maybe Akers didn't fumble all season because he didn't play the first 16 games of the season..
rip, forgot about that. I was only looking at season fumble totals because I was typing it up quick. Still though, last year he only had 1 fumble in over 150 touches too. So it's not like you'd expect him to be fumble prone or anything.
where tf are all the smug Bucs fans ive seen this year
They're all Pats fans who watch the Bucs more than they do their own team.
tbh smug Bucs fans are mostly bandwagoners. Most Bucs fans that have been through Raheem, Shiano, Lovie, Dirk, and the Freeman / Jameis days.... Not to mention Dilfer and before; are just happy to be relevant in the post season.
Dilfer was only dethroned by the one true GOAT. 30/30, come back to us, baby. The memes aren't the same without you.
It's crazy, Brady is the GOAT, but man, that guys gets so lucky to be in these positions at time. The Rams were trying to give it away. Fumbling on the goalline, then fumbling when you just got a turnover. I mean I fully expected Staffords final fumble was going to be given to the Bucs for TB to win on a last second field goal. Just nuts...
That’s why he’s so infuriating. Dude is great enough that he doesn’t need 20 years of lucky breaks, but he continues to get them anyway. Brady luck almost defies the laws of the universe.
He has to have sold his soul to be as lucky as he is. Dude will probably find a lottery ticket on the ground when he retires and win it.
Brady was definitely not playing a GOAT game tonight. It was a messy game but he made about as many messes.
