LA vs LA

Recommended Posts

We've never seen a one city Superbowl.

How cool would it be if somehow, someway, we got that in 2019?

Yes I know, no way in hell that's going to happen, but not impossible.

I wouldn't say that. You can make an argument that each LA team is the second best team in the Conference. Obviously it's unlikely based on sheer odds but there is surely a chance.

And we've never seen a one city Super Bowl because it would have had to have been Jets v. Giants (or perhaps the Raiders and Rams overlapped for a bit - can't remember).

do we really consider the Rams (i am not as sure about the Chargers) LA teams? the few games i have seen from them the opposing team has more fans in the stands then they do.

So not as far fetched as I said, cool.

Raiders vs Niners would have been the game back in the day, Battle of The Bay.

Steelers vs Eagles, hmmmm?

Well sure, but while Oakland and San Fran are only a bridge apart they are not one city,

Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are a long way from each other. They would qualify for "one State" Super Bowl as would Cowboys v. Texans; Miami/Jax v. Tampa Bay; Buffalo v. Giants (although Giants don't really play in NY State) and some combination of the aforementioned California teams.

Come on my man,  it isn't real obvious I  got off the city thing?  Oakland is not San Francisco...really?

We did have Niners vs Chargers for Cali.

The only thing better would be if we see it in 2022 (Super Bowl in LA's new stadium).

You forgot to mention Giants vs. Jets, which would be a same state (NJ) and even same home stadium (as would the LAC vs LAR once that monstrosity is built).

I mentioned that matchup in previous post about "one city" so figured I'd leave it out the second time.

A little tidbit.

When Robert Woods was in HS he was the nations number one 400m sprinter.  Knowing football was his $$$$$$ he didn't compete while at USC.

The Niners with what 22ish, Raiders? Rams? Chargers?

you made me look it up...

https://www.profootballhof.com/heroes-of-the-game/franchises/

Rams = 30 (including STL and LA, of course)

Niners = 27

Raiders = 26 (including OAK and LA, of course)

Chargers = 14

At a quick glance, each list has some players listed that wouldn't really be associated with one of these teams, like OJ Simpson/Chris Doleman/Kevin Greene/Randy Moss/Dent/ Rod Woodson for the 9ers, Jerry Rice/Moss/Lott/Rod Woodson for the Raiders, and so on.

 

LAC/LAR Super Bowl would be interesting since they're both such good teams this year, regardless of the fact that they play in the Raiders' home town of LA ;)

I made this exact prediction in the playoff prediction thread and followed it up with my team for the playoff competition. You’re 2 weeks too late. I’m 3-1 on playoff prediction so far. Missed on Bears.

You beat me to it, so thanks.

One of my trivia questions is what team had four HOF WR's.  People forget Bob Hayes was a Niner.

Surprised the Rams having more than my Niners.

But then it is all ruined when one of them gets kicked out the game because they had a crappy nickname,  like Megatron.
