    Bettor X is pissed, he was ready to sweep in for the 10 mil Pats bet once it moved.

    By the way at the NFL experience today easily a 30-1 ratio of Pats to Rams representation. Tons of Falcons support as well given the location, significantly more the Rams there as well.

    Pats cancelled walk-through, invited families and friends on field.

    Running a fake walkthrough with friends and family in case the Rams are taping it. Smart.

    These were the rule for long stretches of SB history. Like all of the 80s. I’m not suggesting for a minute that the Pats enjoy the same superiority of those NFC teams, but they do have a huge experience advantage.

    Edit. The commonality in those games is that the victor never let up. Not for a second. No conservative posture. They just abused their opponents.

    And after Family Day ended, they ran hills behind the stadium for an hour?

    The goat charged furiously at the ram and struck him, breaking off both his horns. Now the ram was helpless, and the goat knocked him down and trampled him. No one could rescue the ram from the goat’s power.

    - Daniel 8:7

    It would be really slick to see someone in the crowd tomorrow with a massive Daniel 8:7 sign, like those annoying John 3:16 signs from the 80s.

    The guy who made the million dollar bet last year on the Eagles has made an even larger bet on the Rams, on the money line (Rams to win)...$1.5M.

    But how it ties into 8:9 is spooky perfect after, emphasis mine:

    Out of one of them came another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land.

    Where would I find Atlanta on a map of the USA again?

    Haha yeah. A friend of mine sent it to me and I thought it was worth passing on. Figured SOSH would get a kick out of it and would make the proper goat (Brady) connection.

    The best cappers in the world win what 60% of the time, if that?
    Didn't this guy win 7 consecutive MLB bets in the Dodgers Astros series and then the Eagles bet? No one is overdue for a correction more than this guy.

    One of the under reported stories of the NFC Champ game was the NO Saints TE injuries.
    Watson missed the game and Josh Hill was knocked out in the 1st Q after a 20yd reception.

    Dan Arnold taking the place of Hill then drops a fairly easy TD pass a couple plays after Josh is concussed. NO couldn't get much going with their 3rd and 4th string TE's after that though one did score a TD. Gronk is better than Watson/Hill/Arnold combined. LAR have struggled with pass catching TE all season. I think we see LAR double and triple cover Jules tomorrow and vintage Gronk goes off.

    Judging from ticket sales & Atlanta crowd now, Patriots fans might have 80% of the stadium tomorrow. Said one insider: “There is a ‘Jordan final Bulls season‘ feel to this that has brought Patriots fans back out.”

    That Google wasn't curating the answers or deciding that Maine likes paella. It's that Maine searched for paella more than any other state more than Maine searching for any other food more than any other state.

    Implicitly this also shows some underlying level of confidence. You aren’t going to spend a ton of money if you are very concerned you’re going to watch your team lose.

    In terms of 'build up,' it is pretty awesome that the entire country -- even the rabbit ear viewers -- can watch the Bruins, Celtics and Pats today. I might just rewatch game 5 of the WS this morning, just to get the ball rolling.

    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Todd Gurley will not see workhorse usage in Sunday's Super Bowl LIII against the Patriots.

    He'll again split carries with C.J. Anderson, just as he did in previous games against Dallas and New Orleans. Per Rapsheet, the Rams' decision to scale back Gurley's workload is based on a "variety of factors" including his health and conditioning. "We said, 'Going forward, we got to make sure you're fresh, you're healthy,'" RBs coach Skip Peete told Rapoport last week. "The workload that you had prior to you sitting out, probably can't go that route right now. He understood that." Even with two weeks to prepare, it sounds like Gurley will have to settle for a committee role in Sunday's title game.

    Source: NFL.com


    Saw this on Rotoworld and it's really perplexing. Something is not lining up here, but regardless Gurley would be a positive for NE's chances IMO.

    Exactly. That’s a smokescreen. Get ready for lots of Gurley. He’s the one guy on the Rams offense who can (nearly) win the game single-handedly.

    If their outside zone runs churn lots of yards for them this is going to be a long day and I don’t want to think about what else.

    Yeah, remember what Devonta Freeman was doing to the Pats in SB 51?

    He has runs of 37, 15, 9, and 9 to the edges. And he only rushed the ball 11 times.

    Equally as concerning is Van Noy, High, or Roberts finding themselves in man vs Gurley.

    Not sure where this belongs, but pulled it off a CBSSports article:
    A 5000 passing yard pace for a 16 game SuperBowl season... just wow. It isn't like he's playing slouches in the games... just wow.

    Edit: 2576 yards over 8 games
