I know it’s a different crowd for the SB but that can’t be the entire selection of beers can it? Michelob Ultra as the only selection for the Bud/Miller crowd would be unkind.

I'm reasonably sure all the non-Michelob beers are all owned by Anheuser Busch InBev. One time interesting microbreweries that sold out to the 800 pound gorilla.

It was the same thing at Super Bowl 51. AB InBev had exclusive rights and there were no craft beers inside the stadium perimeter.

Everyone is taking Cincy and loving the Joe Burrows angle. The Rams have more talent and are the better team. I’m taking Rams -4. 24-10 final.

It doesn't matter who you're voting for Massachusetts has to go blue.

I really don't care, but if I had to pick one it would be the Rams.

If the Bengals won I would find the next dynasty talk tiring where as the Rams will be shit in a few years due to the lack of draft picks.

This might as well be the game thread since we're only on page 2, right?

It's a great feeling not truly caring who wins. I'm rooting Bengals but I'll sleep very easily tonight either way. My head says that the Rams D line will be too much for the Bengals O line and the Rams win a lowish scoring fairly ugly game, something like 24-13.

It’s unlikely that either franchise will emerge tonight as any real threat to become a dynasty. I’ll take that risk and mildly cheer for Cincy. But I’m betting on LA.

BTW, I can’t believe there aren’t any half-hour NFL Films SB recaps showing on NFLN or ESPN! I love having those in the background during meal prep.

You're already tired of talk that doesn't exist and won't occur? Seems like you're tiring yourself out.

I'm rooting for the Bengals but I think the Rams are the better team and will probably win. Of course, I thought the same thing against both the Titans & and the Chiefs so I guess they have that going for them... :)

And my rooting interest for the Bengals is not exactly strong, if it's a good game I'm going to enjoy it regardless of who wins.

Rams are the more talented team, but they always seem to shoot themselves in the foot when they should be putting teams away. I think LA wins 28-24 and everyone that bets on the final stays interested until the end.

Yeah I don’t anticipate any dynasty talk regardless of who wins. I’m marginally a Bengals fan today just because they’ve never won one and Burrow and Chase seem like likable players. Stafford getting a ring would be a good story too, though. Mostly just rooting for a close game, and for the refs not to suck.

I think Rams win this one fairly easily. McVay having been there before will help and they have more play makers. I am always wrong though.

The one thing I bet on that I am feeling pretty good about is a prop bet for the Rams to be charged with the first time out.

McVay was intimidated and awed by Belichick. He won’t be intimidated and awed this time.

I looked for those too, and disappointed also that they weren't shown. I've seen the half hour versions of 36, 38 and 39 so many times I could probably turn off the sound and narrate at least 36, mostly word for word. I do have 49 and 51 in entirety, plus the championship game vs. KC.

Miller is probably subconsciously a part of it, but I'm getting a SB50 feel from this one. A few field goals and a defensive td (by the Rams in this case)

So, 24-10 Rams is my WAG

Rooting for the Burrows though.

Wasnt there a longer version of that clip that showed Mcvay wasn’t licking BB’s boots but it was more natural in the longer convo? On mobile now but I’ll see if I can find it or I’m misremembering.

Assbags, scumbags, dirtbags, shitbags, douchebags ... what did bags ever do to deserve this?
Has the wagon train of covered wagons that left Cincinnati two weeks ago full of Bengals fans arrived in LA yet? Getting through the rockies this time of year can be a challenge.

I'm rooting for the Rams today, I don't want to hear about how Burrows and Chase are the next big thing in the NFL and how now that the Bengals have finally won a Super Bowl, the sky is the limit.

Because even if they do, it's not.

I'm really looking forward to the halftime show, the one that took place the last time the Rams were in the Super Bowl was God awful.

I can guarantee you with absolute certainty that Burrows and Chase won't be the next big thing in the NFL

You could just swap out the Bengals with Sean McVay. Because if the Rams win the Super Bowl, that is all you are going to hear.

They are basically all in, I can't see anyway they will be able to follow up with multiple SB wins.

And the way he panicked in the NFCCG and burned his time outs with shitty challenges tells me he won't be the next big anything.

The 49ers crapped themselves in that game blowing a 17-7 lead vs him being a genius coach who won the game for the Rams with his decision making.

McVay's time management and overall in-game ineptitude aren't any worse than Andy Reid's, and he's won plenty. I'm pulling for Chinchin but think the Rams are a tad better thanks to their D-Line, so 26-20 LA.

Then again, we just entered the Year of the Tiger.
