TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL…

ESPN's NFL Staff reached out to 23 former Super Bowl Champions to hear first hand what it's like to win it all. John Weinfuss and Mike Rodak of ESPN reached out to two former Rams who won the big game, Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner and wide receiver Ricky Proehl.

Quarterback Kurt Warner, St. Louis Rams, Super Bowl XXXIV: Kurt Warner's first championship at any level came at 28 years old, when he led the St. Louis Rams over the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV.

"You work your whole life to be considered the best at what you do," Warner said. "To be a part of a team, a group that does that, kind of writes your name in history. It's incredible. As far as sports goes, there's no greater feeling than winning a championship. I always kind of liken it to the greatest things in life, when you get married, when you have your children. That kind of feeling in life."

Wide receiver Ricky Proehl, St. Louis Rams, Super Bowl XXXIV: "It was the most amazing feeling for me, especially. I had been on a lot of losing teams over my first 10 years. ... To always have dreamed about, prayed about what it felt like to be on a winning team, and to have that feeling and experience it, it was the most amazing experience I've ever felt in my life."

NFL FORECAST

On Monday, ESPN's Dan Graziano's NFL Forecast listed the 100 QBs, coaches, issues and decision-makers shaping the NFL's near future. A handful of Rams are included on the list, including quarterback Jared Goff, head coach Sean McVay, defensive tackle Aaron Donald, running back Todd Gurley, and owner Stan Kroenke.

Here's why Donald and his head coach make the list:

42. DT AARON DONALD: Now that Donald has his big new deal ($87 million guaranteed), will he start showing up at training camp? The way he's played without it the past two seasons (31.5 sacks, including 20.5 in 2018), why bother? Donald might be the best player in the league regardless of position, and should be a perennial MVP contender even though no defender has won that award since Lawrence Taylor in 1986.

71. HC SEAN McVAY: The NFL's youngest-ever head coach (he turns 33 Thursday) reached the Super Bowl in his second season and has inspired a wave of copycat attempts by teams trying to replicate what he has done with the Rams.

MADDEN SIMULATION

CBS Sports' Pick Six Podcast simulated Super Bowl LIII on 'Madden' on Tuesday and the Patriots came out on top — quarterback Tom Brady winning his sixth world title.

Pick Six's Will Brinson said the simulation wasn't as close as last season's video game-forecast for the Eagles and Pats in Super Bowl LII.

"The game won't be as close, as our sim predicts a 38-31 Pats win over Los Angeles, but there were multiple opportunities for Jared Goff and Sean McVay to bring time to a full circle and take down the Patriots dynasty."
