Count Kurt Warner among the people who were gobsmacked after watching Matthew Stafford’s ridiculous no-look pitch on Cooper Kupp in Super Bowl 56 between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals.
During the winning run in the fourth quarter, Stafford found Kupp for a 22-yard gain into Bengals territory. While already fully engaged, a slow-motion replay of the pitch showed the Rams QB not looking at his wide receiver at all.
After Warner saw the clip, he couldn’t help but be jealous of the skill Stafford displayed. It is truly a work of art and beauty at its finest.
“I rarely find myself envious of another person’s success (bc I’m more than blessed) but man, I’m often envious (in a good way ppl) of another person’s skills…it’s a work of art. art, using body and eyes to manipulate defenders and then a dime in a critical moment…SO BEAUTIFUL!” the St. Louis Rams legend wrote on Twitter alongside the clip for the play.
As mentioned, Kurt Warner is just one of many who found the piece to be nothing short of amazing. For what it’s worth, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was left speechless after seeing it as well, tweeting just three Flushed Face emojis to show how amazed he is.

We can’t blame Warner and Mahomes for their reactions, though. Anyone who sees this beauty thing from Matthew Stafford will likely have the same reaction, and it’s sure to go down as one of the best, if not the greatest game in gaming.
