    Essentially yeah. It’s thrown around a lot at the college level. People like to use it to give credit to the coaches rather than the quarterback.

    The rams had terrible coach before McKay. Last years super bowl mvp nick foles played for the rams under that head coach and was absolutely terrible.

    Yeah pretty much, it's kind of aided by the fact that coaches can talk to the qb up to 15 seconds before the snap. Goff also improved dramatically under McVay. It's pretty stupid because of course players do better in a system that fits their strength. If you put Brady in a system that relies on seven step drops and deep passes he wouldn't be as good as he is in the Patriots system even if he would still be very good.

    Got into the NFL properly for the first time ever this year and decided at tge start of the season to support the Rams pretty much at random without any prior knowledge about the teams (except that the Patriots always win).

    Despite having stayed up for the Superbowl before I probably won't last the night this time. The first half is probably as far as I'll go but a Rams win go a nice way to start making up for the pain England inflicted on me yesterday.:(:(:(

    Need to decide if I go Gamepass or BBC.

    Bell and Osi have great chemistry so learning to them on the BBC.

    But Gamepass has the commercials

    The Superbowl has got to be the only sporting event where people seem as interested in the ads as they are in the actual sport.

    Thanks for the detailed response, I’m going to save this comment to refer back to during the night.

    Gonna shout for the Rams. If in doubt, underdog.

    Lads atmosphere here is unreal. I have my Rams gear on but wouldn't begrudge Pats.
    But as a sporting weekend this is unreal.
    Also saw Harry Kane. Never knew he's a Pats fan

    Lads Edelman is literally a midget. Can't get over how small he is but standing out as the best offensive player here.
    Rams D is really impressive but they're out there too long

    I hope Edelmen gets MVP (but he won't, Brady will)

    Edelman did get MVP -10 catches for 140 something yards - well deserved.

    A fine line between "in support of" and "in fear of".

    Was the whole thing as bad as everyone's making out (game and half-time show)?
