^ I guess that means he'll have less time to answer the "Gruden Hotline", eh?

On Saturday night, in their first playoff game at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in nearly 40 years, the Rams ran into a battle-tested Atlanta Falcons team that suffocated Todd Gurley, dominated the time of possession and took advantage of a couple of early special-teams turnovers. In front of a season-best crowd of 74,300, the Rams suffered a 26-13 loss in the wild-card round, their uplifting season under first-year head coach Sean McVay evaporating in a matter of 60 minutes.

"They did a great job," Gurley said of the Falcons. "They came in and executed, and they've got great players. They aren't the reigning NFC champs for no reason."

Gurley, who might just win the MVP, caught only four of 10 targets and totaled 111 scrimmage yards, the speed of the Falcons' defense and the slickness of the Coliseum's turf taking away the underneath game that had been so effective for him.

But the Rams were especially hurt on special teams, a department they excelled at throughout the season.

The playoff are a tough to survive in. Especially when you keep shooting yourself in the foot.

That was only the second time that happened in NFL statistical history... In addition his first Playoff touchdown pass was his first playoff touchdown catch... :shock:

I rooting for Brady to fall off the cliff since it was revealed how he pushed Garrapollo out of the building. I’m sure glad the 49ers have him though.

I sure hope the Jags can break 40pts in NE. The cold doesn't seem to effect them. NE's defense is better then Pitts., though.

Yes, NE's defense is better than Pitts., and if Ben can put up 42 against the Jags, so can Brady.

But I'd sure love to see the Jags win.

Just as long as the cheaters are not in the Superbowl, they have ruined pro football with their lack of class, no one trusts them, they find new ways to cheat every year, they have to go... :idea:

You think that’s bad? Last year when Madison Bumgarner fucked up his shoulder on a dirt bike, I compared it to the time when Jim Lonborg tore up his knee snow skiing in the offseason after he won the Cy Young Award.

There's so many fresh stories with 3 teams, and it would be great if any of them got in and won the Super Bowl.

But the Patriots will probably win everything.
