Without a proper radio row and the usual fanfare, the coverage leading up to this year’s Super Bowl has felt very subdued.
Yesterday, I was doing the Splash Play pod with Chris Spags and both of us struggled to come up with any intriguing storylines that have emerged since the Conference Championship games.
Tom Brady could play beyond 2021?
Antonio Brown missed another practice
Andy Reid promises to down 6 cheeseburgers if Chiefs win
The last one is made up, but you get the idea. We are really scraping the bottom of the barrel here.
One interesting development of note is the Chiefs placed C Daniel Kilgore and WR Demarcus Robinson on the COVID-19 reserve list yesterday due to a close contact situation. Neither is a positive case, so assuming they keep testing negative it shouldn’t be an issue.
The other big news of the week is the Rams sending Jared Goff, two future first-round picks, and a third to the Lions in exchange for the 33 year-old Matthew Stafford.
The trade seems to make sense for both parties. The Rams push all-in under the thesis that they are a QB away from being a Super Bowl contender, while the Lions get a chance at both a retool and a rebuild with a competent QB and a warchest of picks. Pressure’s on, McVay.
