HOLT, BRUCE ARRIVE IN MIAMI

WARNER BREAKS DOWN THE SUPER BOWL

Former Rams quarterback Kurt Warner this week is in Miami this week and will serve as the color analyst for Westwood One's national radio broadcast of Super Bowl LIV.

This week, he joined the Rich Eisen Show to give his thoughts on the 49ers and the Chiefs ahead of the NFL's biggest game.

FAULK VIEWS MCCAFFREY AS BETTER VERSION OF HIMSELF

An AP First Team All-Pro at two positions in 2019, Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey became just the third player in NFL history to reach 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in a single season and first since Rams running back Marshall Faulk in 1999.

In McCaffrey, Faulk sees a better version of himself.

Here's an excerpt of what Panthers.com's Bill Voth wrote from Miami:

Faulk is a Hall of Famer, former MVP and the only player to surpass 12,000 rushing yards and 6,000 receiving yards in his career. So how is McCaffrey, after just three NFL seasons, better?

"He got to watch me. He got to see me. It's what happens," Faulk said. "You get to be a better version of."

That evolution is best told through total scrimmage yards after each player's first three seasons. Faulk was at 4,372 through three years with the Colts. McCaffrey is at 5,443. And it took Faulk six seasons to enter the exclusive club McCaffrey burst into this past year.

In 1999, Faulk joined Roger Craig (1985) as the only players to total 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in a season. But to Faulk, McCaffrey's 1,000/1,000 year in 2019 featured bigger hurdles.

DONALD WASN'T ALWAYS A DEFENSIVE LINEMAN

Believe it or not, Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald as a kid envisioned he would end up being an offensive player.

His appetite, though, had other plans.

"I mean I grew up playing you know like middle linebacker since Little League, so growing up I always thought I would play running back," Donald told Mike Florio and Chris Simms during his Thursday appearance on Pro Football Talk Live. "But I ate my way out of that position, so you know I started playing defensive line probably around 12 or 13 and just been stuck there ever since."

Check out Donald's full interview below via NBC Sports' official YouTube channel.
