Taking a page from Jimmy Kimmel’s playbook, Jimmy Fallon and team decided to take their long-running superlatives segment and add in the presence of some real life NFL stars. Rob Gronkowski, Joe Flacco, Peyton Manning, Megatron and many others sit in on The Tonight Show to read off their beginning of the season superlatives. It’s a simple premise and quite a few hit the mark.
Ndamukong Suh seems to be a fun guy to mess around with, while Drew Brees is as harmless as a pillow, even in a comedy bit. Same goes for Flacco, but his superlative was the one that stood out as spot on. A close second was Clay Matthews as the lost Baldwin brother, which only makes sense if he ate one of the lesser Baldwins (Look out, Daniel).
Is it as good as Mean Tweets? No way in hell. But having the NFL players around does aid things quite a bit.
