Rams’ Jalen Ramsey finally reaches Super Bowl
Jalen Ramsey is finally playing in the Super Bowl after going through six seasons and two teams in his turbulent NFL career.
“It means a lot to be in this position with this team and with these guys,” Ramsey said on Monday. “I mean obviously this is the highest achievement that you can achieve in our profession, so it means a lot. And I’m super grateful and I’m cherishing all these moments.”
Ramsey, who proclaims himself the NFL’s top defensive back, will play his first Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
He had previously lost the opportunity by only minutes in his second season in the league when his team squandered a 10-point lead in the AFC championship game.
Despite his controversies, such as being arrested in 2018 and having a heated debate with then-coach Doug Marrone in 2019, Ramsey has been every bit the exceptional cornerback and star that the Rams desired. He was tied for the team lead in interceptions with four, while placing sixth on the Rams in tackles with 77. This resulted in his third All-Pro selection and fifth Pro Bowl appearance.
Ramsey’s probable challenge Sunday will be covering up-and-coming superstar wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase of the Cincinnati Bengals.
The 1,455 yards received by Chase in the regular season are the most by a rookie in the NFL, and Chase’s 279 yards receiving in the postseason are the highest ever caught by a rookie.
“I’ve consistently been great over the years,” Ramsey said. “So I’ve shown that I will show up when I need to show up, and that’s what I plan to do again on Sunday.”
To be fair, we've also wasted about 15 years of Top 10 draft picks so whats the difference
2 first round picks for a guy that didn’t want to be there is good Taking a third down RB with one of those picks is inexplicably bad
Chaisson only having 2 sacks in 2 years is bad. Etienne has the ability to be good, the fit was just bad and his injury is eh.
The Travis Etienne pick was just inexplicably stupid. Even putting aside the already questionable decision to pick a RB in the first round, they had a damn good RB in Robinson. I like Etienne too, but given the holes the Jaguars had on their roster, this is the definition of a wasted pick.
Yeah, shit front offices tend to fuck up good things. What a surprise! Seriously, *I* could have drafted better than the Jags front office in 2020 and 2021.
