Terrell Davis and Hines Ward are two of the most exciting players to ever play in the NFL. They have won three Super Bowls, a couple MVP trophies, 11 Pro-Bowl selections with about 5500 combined yards and 40 interceptions between them. On this week’s podcast The Scouting Report crew will discuss Terrell Davis’ top 10 all time plays – including his 500 yard rushing performance on Christmas Day 1997 against San Diego that put him over Barry Sanders for first place on the career list at 1523 total yards.

This issue is also always controversial because it includes some nude or partially nude photos of models wearing swimsuits while doing different poses in various locations across the world (think beaches). One thing people don’t know is how many hours go into designing these covers which include several versions

Terrell Davis and Hines Ward Make Their Super Bowl 56 Picks, Predict Who Will Join Them as a Super Bowl MVP

We chatted with numerous previous champions this week as part of Sportscasting’s Super Bowl coverage ahead of the game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium, including two Super Bowl MVP winners in Terrell Davis and Hines Ward.

Davis and John Elway won back-to-back Super Bowls with the Broncos in the late 1990s, and Davis was named MVP after Denver’s first triumph. In the Broncos’ 31-24 victory against the Packers, TD carried the ball 30 times for 157 yards and three touchdowns, the fifth-most in franchise history.

Ward is a two-time Super Bowl champion, having won both with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2000s. The four-time Pro Bowler was named MVP after receiving five catches for 123 yards and a score in the Steelers’ 21-10 Super Bowl 40 win against the Seahawks.

We spoke with the two former Georgia Bulldogs earlier this week to get their predictions for Sunday’s game, as well as their predictions for who will join them as a fellow Super Bowl MVP and how they’ve partnered with Tums for some Super Bowl trivia fun.

Terrell Davis and Hines Ward were interviewed by Sportscasting.

Sportscasting: So, before we get into any Super Bowl 56 questions, tell us what you’re doing with Tums and how fans can participate in some trivia this Sunday.

Terrell Davis (Terell Davis): This year, we’re thrilled to be teaming with Tums, who knows a thing or two about the pressures of competition. We appreciate the intensity of competition as players, and we’re looking forward to the game on Sunday. Tums is hosting the Tumsworthy Big Game for the first time. Trivia is putting fans’ knowledge to the test for a chance to win a share of $88,000 in prize money.

Hines Ward: And fans can check us out on Tums’ official Twitter account for more details.

So I’ve got two two-time Super Bowl champions here, and both of you have earned Super Bowl MVP awards. So I’m going to ask everyone of you to choose the winner of Sunday’s game and the Super Bowl MVP.

Terrell Davis: I’ll take the lead on this one. I’m going with the Los Angeles Rams, and I’ve got a score for you as well: 27-24. It’ll be a close race. I believe the Bengals will show up, but they will fall short. Aaron Donald, who has been waiting for this moment for a long time, will be my MVP. He was there previously, but they didn’t deliver, but I believe Aaron Donald will be named MVP for his defensive line effort.

Ward, Hines: Yes, I agree with TD, and I’ll be rooting for the Los Angeles Rams. However, since they are at home, my score is a bit different. Los Angeles wins handily, 33-21. And, of course, we all know how important the quarterback is in a major game like the Super Bowl. And our fellow Bulldog, Matthew Stafford, adds to the group of UGA MVPs, so I expect him to join Jake Scott, myself, and TD in bringing that ring and MVP accolades back to Athens.

Sportscasting: So we’ve got a lot of young people participating in this Super Bowl, especially on Cincinnati’s side, while the Rams have a few guys who have played in this game before. You’re all familiar with the game. You’re aware of the size of the stage and the atmosphere. When the Super Bowl’s first whistle blows on Sunday, what can these individuals who haven’t been there expect?

Terrell Davis: This isn’t your typical game. It’s not the case. You may try to persuade yourself that it’s a regular game, but it isn’t. Everything about it is unique. The build — the game’s pace seems rapid — or sluggish, depending on whether you’re up or down — but it feels like every move counts. It’s like when you have a horrible performance, it lingers. You must be able to move on from it and not focus just on that one play. Just stay the course. It’ll be a battle, and the Bengals will not have an easy assignment ahead of them.

I participated in the game for the first time, and we were successful in winning it. We lacked the experience of the squad we were playing against. We didn’t have that experience since they had won the title the year before, but we still won that game. So go ahead and do what you’ve already done to get to this stage. Don’t alter who you are, and if you’re the Bengals, don’t change your stripes. Go in there and play for fun, and maybe you’ll come out on top.

Hines Ward: Cincinnati, on the other hand, is the new kid on the block, experiencing a Cinderella season. They are only aware of what they are aware of. They have no idea. They have no idea how they should feel during the Super Bowl. However, they go on to defeat Tennessee and then Kansas City. You’re going in with a lot of self-assurance. You defeated the AFC’s two finest teams. So it’s just another game to them.

Don’t let the Super Bowl overwhelm you by trying to do too much. Just keep doing what they’re doing, and they’ll have a chance to pull off the big shock in the end. But it’s all about relying on your celebrities for me. And Aaron Donald, Von Miller, Jalen Ramsey, Odell Beckham Jr., Cooper Kupp, Matthew Stafford, and the rest of the team are on a mission. They’re all wanting to win it in Los Angeles, so playing at home offers them a little edge.

We’d want to express our gratitude to Mr. Davis and Mr. Ward for joining us, as well as our friends at KEF Media for putting everything up. Have fun with Super Bowl 56.
