I think most fans of non-playoff teams either want a Rams-Chiefs redux or if not those teams, then either the Chargers (get Rivers a ring) or the Saints.

I'm not sure that's completely accurate. It's been my experience that, when their team is knocked out of contention, there are three types of fan:

1) They have a backup team they root for.

2) They root for whoever is playing against a team they dislike.

3) They root for the underdog.

I'm sure there are people whose backup teams are the Rams or Chiefs, or people who will root for them because they're playing against their favorite team's rival, but I'm not entirely sure the percentage of people hoping for a Rams v Chiefs Super Bowl just because they'd like to see that match up would be high enough to qualify as "most fans of non-playoff teams."

In my case, the Bears are out and my backup team (Cincinnati) didn't even come close to making the playoffs. The only team I genuinely actively dislike (Green Bay) didn't make the playoffs. The closest there is to an underdog story this postseason is the Eagles, and the combination of them knocking my Bears out and being the reigning champions really takes the edge off of their underdog status  :laugh:.

I suppose the Colt's run to end the season and make it like they did makes for a good story, but they beat the Bears the last time they made it to the Super Bowl, so I'm legally obligated to root against them. I guess that means I can root for whoever's playing them, but I don't have a burning hatred for them like I do for Green Bay, so it's just not the same. Even then, if they get knocked out in the next round, I'm right back where I started, hahaha.

That apparently leaves me out of the "most fans" camp, though, because I'm not clamoring for a Chiefs / Rams matchup, and I've always thought Rivers was a bit of a douche so I couldn't care less whether or not he gets a ring  ;D.

Normally I'd agree, but that MNF game with the Rams and Chiefs was so legendary, that I think most fans want those two teams simply because they'd love to see that kind of game.

Not only did it live up to the hype (Wasn't it 23-23 at halftime?) but the number of lead changes and the way it got better as the game went on really made it special.

I agree that some fans certainly feel that way, but I'm not certain most fans care one way or the other. Consider how many people watch the Super Bowl just for the commercials.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Pretty sure this game will come down to how Goff plays. His defense and Gurley have really helped him this year. I'm not saying his a bad quarterback; however, I think he's just good at not throwing away a game. For the Rams to win this game aginst Brady Goff will have to have one of the better games of his life as New England will be able to pick apart that defense.
