Aaron Donald: I’ve accomplished a lot, only thing lacking is a Super Bowl win

NFL: JAN 23 NFC Divisional Round - Rams at Buccaneers

One of the themes from the Rams this week has been what winning a Super Bowl would mean for the record of defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

Defensive coordinator Raheem Morris and linebacker Von Miller both mentioned their desire to see Donald add that line to the already sterling list of accomplishments he’s had in the NFL. Donald said on Thursday that it “means a lot” to hear that from members of the team and that he feels the same way about teammates like Andrew Whitworth and Eric Weddle.

Donald also made it clear during his press conference that getting a Super Bowl ring is something that’s driving him personally as well.

“It’s just trying to find a way to win,” Donald said. “It’s trying to find a way to get back and accomplish something I never accomplished before. I don’t know what it feels like to win the Super Bowl. I know what it feels like to be there, but I don’t know what it feels like to win. I feel like I accomplished a lot in a short amount of time in this league. The only thing I’m lacking now is being a world champion. To get to that point, we’ve got to win this week.”

With three defensive player of the year awards and seven straight All-Pro selections, Donald’s record is as strong as just about any player’s could be without having a Super Bowl win under his belt. A big game Sunday will make it likelier that he gets his second chance to fill that line on his resume on his home field.

  1. Yeah and your ego has blocked you from earning it. We shall see.

    So far you’re about as far off as a gamer as what JJ Watt was.

  2. I love how players say that they want to win even more for another player to get him to the Super Bowl. Do you know many amazing players throughout the history of the NFL have never even been to the playoffs let alone made and won a ring? Donald’s accolades don’t make him any better than anyone else before him who never won it all.

    Also GO NINERS!

  3. Sorry Aaron but your daddy Deebo is gonna crush those dreams on Sunday. And you’ll probably still pretend you don’t know who he is 🤡🤡🤡

  4. It’s so freaking hard to win it all and so many all time greats never do. I’m not a Rams fan at all, but I’d be happy for him if it happens.

  5. I don’t see the Rams getting past the 49ers. They are in the NFCCG on pure luck. They nearly gave that Bucs game away last week. Donald may have to postpone this accomplishment. The 49ers knocked off the Packers at Lambeau in the bitter cold. Advantage 49ers,even in So-Fi.

  6. If the Rams actually manage to win the Super Bowl, it will accomplish another amazing feat… Getting Los Angeles sports fans to briefly care about a professional football team.

  7. I think the Rams are a far better all round team than the 49ers, however Stafford doesn’t turn up for the whole game very often and they nearly blew a very comfortable win against the Bucks.
    I haven’t seen a luckier team with as bad an offence as the 49ers, with that kind of luck their name could already be written on the SB!
    If the reports are true and the RAM’s fans have auctioned off their tickets to 49ers fans again, then quite frankly they deserve to lose!

  8. If he really wants that ring he should lower his salary and free up more of the cap. He’s already made over $97M.

  9. Well…you can ask Joe Thuney how it feels I guess 🙂

    Would focus on the game at hand first though…

    Great player regardless.

    Just like BB’s ego blocked the Patriots from winning the SB against the Eagles. It’s why Tom and Gronk walked.

    Why are the Rams so focused on the Superbowl? They have the NFC Championship game to play yet.

    Exactly. They are looking past the 49ers and that is a huge mistake. McVay should know this.
