The GCS Ladies and Jessika discuss the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, as well as some of the other records that were broken and/or tied during the game. What happened to the Falcons the 2nd half? Is Kyle Shanahan the blame? Who took Tom Brady’s jersey and will anyone give James White the winning game ball he left behind? The difference between Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, and Melissa finally links Howie Long and Chris Long (DUH!!! smdh) and enjoys the time that Martellus and Michael Bennett were able to share post game interview. Now what about those commercials!!! SB 2017 came with some great commercials, and MANY with great meaning behind them (slight punch at the orange guy lol). What about the halftime show? Our thoughts on GAGA’s performance take? But lets really talk about what everyone wants to know, no not #ArmsoftheNFL *which we cover* BUT are the Simpsons really predicting major life events?

The Los Angeles Rams will request permission to speak with Atlanta Falcons quarterback coach Matt LaFleur about their offensive coordinator position, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Lafleur and new Rams head coach Sean McVay once worked together in Washington and McVay believes he can improve the offense and help quarterback Jared Goff reach his potential.
According to Schefter, the feeling is mutual.
LaFleur would be the logical candidate to replace current Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, as Shanahan is set to accept the San Fransisco 49ers’ head coaching job.
LaFleur was also mentioned to join Shanahan in the Bay Area as the team’s offensive coordinator.
Atlanta has expressed interest in former 49ers’ coach Chip Kelly as their next offensive coordinator, according to Ian Rapport of NFL.com.
LaFleur knows he’s a hot candidate and will be pursued by both Rams and 49ers, but his singular focus is helping the Falcons capture its first Lombardi Trophy.
“I really don’t care,” he told Rapport during Super Bowl week.
