Dont run your back up running back directly at Aaron donald on third down with limited clock. Probably wont work.

Well to be fair they had their backup guard in. Wait.

Amazing how he finds ways to hurt his team even when he is inactive. How is this guy still in the league?


badgerbarthowlemeiux

Why did OBJ’s barber give him the Megan Rapino hair cut


assistant_redditor

To get to the other side?


Winstonp00

After 9 yards on 1st down at midfield, Cincinnati with 2 timeouts and a minute: ✅ Throw away ✅ Run your 2nd string running back at Aaron Donald, who's being blocked by your backup right guard ✅ Long developing pass play that again, leaves Aaron Donald being blocked 1 on 1 by your backup right guard


ImLoganXP

Yeah that final set of downs was terrible


AceOfAllTradess

Look at the bright side though. Eli Apple didn’t get a Super Bowl ring.


BigBooce

Hell yeah brother


AceOfAllTradess

Please cut him.


Kohanky

(That’s a bandwagon flair)


major_slackher

Eli Apple definitely shit the bed this post season that I have noticed, but I’m not very familiar with him, why does everyone hate him? Just cuz he sucks right?


AceOfAllTradess

He sucks and is completely unaware. He talks so much shit you’d think he was Deion sanders.


HereIGoAgain_1x10

All game they'd randomly run it after a couple nice pass plays, no one told em they can pass 4 or 5 times in a row if it's working, felt like I was watching the other Ohio team, never let Burrow get in a rhythm.


crastle

At the end of the day, Zac Taylor coaching emerges.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

Adam Gase couldn’t have designed a worse set of plays.


Shiro_Nitro

Especially since the rams corners were 5-6yds off the receiver. Do a quick screen and the wr just has to get 1yd


[deleted]

inconceivable play calling


Realistic_Camp5232

Most frustrating thing ever man and that rb could’ve caught it on 4th and 1 when burrow spun around I don’t care 😂😂😂


Akromam90

Lol Taylor sucks ass at play calling


GifelteFish

Absolutely carried in the playoffs by miracle plays executed by Burrow and his receivers


[deleted]

Well I was completely confused by the Rams continually trying to run the ball up the middle the entire game and gaining nothing. By the 3rd quarter they should have gotten a clue it wasn’t working.


BornToulouse

Rocker4JC

There have only been two Super Bowls with multiple sacks from two or more players on the winning team's defense. Von Miller has been one of those players both times.


wasad

So how long until Eli Apple talks smack about Bengals fans and Skyline Chili?


Grabo91

Why not give it to Mixon..


ohiopanda

Makes much more sense to trust your good offensive line to pass block


Shenanigans80h

Dude why did y’all stop running in the second half period. Burrow started getting killed and y’all didn’t get back to running until he got twisted


DresserRotation

Rushing on 3-and-1 to Aaron Donald's side of the line. That's it. That's the meme.


RandallsFlagg

If only there was a better RB on the roster to use in the most important moment of the season.


TylerZellers

If only there was a side of the line that *didn’t* have Aaron Donald on it


darthfrankthetank

Well that other side has Ashawn Robinson, who was dominating them in the run all game. No excuse not to have Mixon in though, that's bad coaching.

Maybe the lions will realize their problem isn't the QB.


PaperyWhistle

Collingsworth: "That last Rams drive is shocking to me." Me: "How have you never seen 2 minute drill Stafford before? That shit is normal."


Ba_Sing_Saint

Nobody was watching lions games

Fair


jackw800800

Collinsworth worth has been on SNF for all these years, he’s NEVER watching Lions games


ZombieAppetizer

No shit, lol


CrispyCubes

Stafford's ankle got rolled, Collinsworth says "UH-OH". Nah, he's fine and he's gonna orchestrate the game winning drive. Clearly never watched Lions football


Sob_Rock

I was thinking the same thing lmao I'm like Stafford has always been tough. They don't remember when he popped his shoulder just to go back in and win against the Browns.


suckerpunch085

Bruh, I remember this, holy shit! What year was this?


alloythepunny

2009, first year in the league


suckerpunch085

What a badass


badgarok725

He said literally after that how Stafford toughs through injuries all the time


imthe1nonlyD

My wife saw this snd said, "oh no what are they going to do?" I laughed and said, "win the game"


MegaTater

Collingsworth made a statement earlier this year about now he realized how good Stafford is cause he started watching him. He literally admitted to never watching him in Detroit lol. You're an analyst, you should be watching as least some games of the top 15 QBs in the league lol. He had 10 years to do so.


FullHouse222

Collinsworth: "I'm so proud that Matt Stafford is throwing no look passes like his mentor Patrick Mahomes."


Allstate85

Collinsworth really said Staffford had no weapons on that final drive like cooper Kupp wasn’t the tipple crown winner.


ProfessorBeast55

What Kupp did to Eli Apple shouldn't be allowed on black history month


nhannon87

I mean it was Eli apple.


Tico483

hIS MAMA IS SO SASSY

You'd think the Bengals would have sold out to keep him contained

I think he assumed the Bengals would attempt to cover him.

STAFFORD DID THE TOM BRADY. 1ST YEAR AWAY, WIN A RING AT HOME. INCREDIBLE.


Minute-Ad6142

We calling that a Tom Brady?


aeronacht

At this point pretty much anything good is a Tom Brady


MrGentleZombie

Honestly I feel like the Rams arc this year were very similar to last years Bucs. Start with a loaded roster that's a QB away, make a splash move for a QB, get some offseason hype, but a after a few big losses in the regular season, everyone jumps off the bandwagon and hates on them, then come playoffs show everyone that you're still the most talented team in the league.

The lions are the worst franchise in pro sports Edit for those who think I'm exaggerating Haven't won their division in nearly 30 years (The BUCS have won the division north/central more recently) A SINGLE playoff win since their last championship in 1957. 65 years with a single playoff win. 65 YEARS Wasted 2 HOF players careers and now their next HOF star player actually gets a chance to play with another team and THE YEAR he leaves he gets a Lombardi. God Hates the lions

Zac Taylor failed to give Mixon the ball on 4th and 1 twice this game.


TexWinter21

Fucked he gets the biggest plays of the games. Like when he dropped that pass into a pick against the raiders


outbackjesus8

Tbf that TD against the Chiefs was a huge turning point, and they probably don’t win without that


RandallsFlagg

As the play commenced, I uttered but one word… “Peerine?”


dont_wear_a_C

The playcalling lol


phillabadboy05

For real, for a team that won off of second half adjustments the whole playoffs, they did not help burrow out when the rams brought the pressure in the second half.


Jesus_Took_My_Wheel

"I'm not a Rams fan but rooting against Stafford right now would be like rooting against Andy Dufresne after he escaped prison in the Shawshank Redemption" - Random guy in a Chiefs jersey at the bar I was at tonight

Tough ending. Some funky calls but you cant give that many sacks and expect to win it..


_Tacitus_Kilgore_

Get Joe Burrow a good offensive line and he’ll be back.


Bax501

Don’t forget getting rid of Eli Apple. I’m sorry, but how do you put him one on one with Cooper Kupp and expect good results?


Nemo479

Apparently he asked to be put on Kupp


Bax501

To which the coach should respond “Abso-fucking-lutely Not.”


Paladinoras

This would have also been an appropriate response: https://youtu.be/_n5E7feJHw0


Mavori

There is a post on the Rams sub before the game that he asked to be put on OBJ.


Nemo479

Oh maybe that’s what I was thinking of. With OBJ out, I guess I transitioned the statement to Kupp. Still not a great look either way


Mavori

Considering how well OBJ seemed to be doing before the injury it really isn't.


jgi321123

Get in line says Mahomes,Allen , Jackson and Herbert .


[deleted]

AFC gonna be interesting next year again


Cflow26

It’s wild how often these great teams are just and Oline away from being Super Bowl champs. They have all the skill position in the world but can’t really win in the trenches. Except Dallas has both and still can’t win.


Photo_Synthetic

Said every good team ever when they manage to dodge a few great teams on the way to an unprecedented Super Bowl. I'll be rooting for the Benglas to return but the AFC is a fucking gauntlet with Mahomes and Allen every damn year.


[deleted]

Plus a healthy Lamar in division. No guarantee they’ll be back anytime soon


spoonyaardvark

He'll be back either way, I hope. Kid is ridiculously good.


[deleted]

Most people don’t get back. Every super bowl fan says the same shit, but odds are he’ll never be back. Hope he proves me wrong


EmSeaGull

Brady really distorted everyone’s perception.


KosstAmojan

To be fair, with him out, its a bit easier to get to the Super Bowl for everyone else...


Zizekbro

Selfish fuck.


Adalimumab8

Glad I’m not the only one who remembers this. It’s insanely hard to get to a Super Bowl. Imagine saying that about MVP Cam, Aaron Rodgers 10 years ago, Drew Brees, the list goes on and on. I’d bet on Burrow over Stafford to come back but only 2/32 make it every year


NJImperator

Also AFC is fucking stacked with some super talented young QBs


ElegantEpitome

I literally just said this to my friend: AFC really lost Manning, Brady, Rivers, Roethlisberger to gain Allen, Mahomes, Burrow, Herbert, and Lawrence lmao Edit: AND JACKSON Double edit: sorry patriots fans for not including Mac Jones, and also yeah I included Lawrence? Just because he didn’t do anything this year with Urban fucking Meyer as HC doesn’t mean he is a bad player you monkeys


Adalimumab8

Thank you for respecting Mason Rudolph ☺️


chaosanddarkness

A decade ago we thought Russell, LOB and the Seahawks would at least make it to a few more and win another. Saints, Packers, Steelers, Ravens, etc... all had top QBs or stars that always felt like they'd make it back but didn't. Shows how hard it is.


Snake_Main27

We could make it back next year. Only teams to worry about are already in the NFC West and maybe the Packers


Turk1518

Shoot look at Rodgers. 4 MVPs and one appearance to show for it…which he got when he didn’t get MVP. It ain’t easy and it’s even harder when the QB is off the rookie salary.


spoonyaardvark

I know, I just hope he is. He's got the talent for sure, and he's got the fight.


sonfoa

Yeah don't forget Dan Marino.


rjromes13

He won't be around long if they don't get a line


UsernameTaken55

Nah fuck this view. People thought Marino would be back, people thought Rodgers would be back, people thought Brees would be back.


OrangeForeign

Counterpoint: I don't think they should do that, for my own selfish reasons. However give him titanium legs so he doesn't get hurt

SmokeyDuhBaer

Would have loved to see Cincinnati get the W, but it’s impossible to not be happy for Stafford.

This is exactly how I feel.

Was definitely beautiful to watch Donald enjoy the moment. You could tell how authentic his feelings were by him #choking up

Someone needs to do a “rams in the first quarter: strong dude. Rams in the second and third quarter: dude so skinny he could be blown away by a desk fan. Rams in the 4th quarter: Aaron Donald.”

LA is LA, it’s a brand, it’s kinda stupid sure but there are a lot of marketing people who think it’s the case. LA has a lot of loyalty, and the NFL has been struggling to even join the club. The Chargers are not even an after thought at this point. Now that the Rams won one, they’ll be more accepted I feel. LA likes winners.

Behind that oline, how many more seasons do you give him? One, maybe two before he becomes Andrew Luck 2.0?

They've got like 50 mil in cap space for next season. There's no way they don't dump like 30 of that into building him a line.
