Brady's fatal flaw, an awkward Birk-Moss reunion, and a double standard on fines.

It's senseless not to elect Art Modell into The Hall of Fame - PERIOD!

People look at Belichick as some evil Sith lord, and "Hey kid, get off my lawn" kinda guy! In glimpses, he's actually pretty easy going, laid back but he's no nonsense and just keeps his cards close to the vest!

Of course there's a double standard in football! Brady should have been penalized for the leg antics and that hit on Pitta was also a penalty! Sometimes it seems that there's a list of NFL penalties and an addendum of Raven Penalties!

The hit on pitta was an obvious defenseless receiver.. not a H2H but its still a penalty, he hit him before he took a breath after catching the ball blindsided and pollard n reed get flagged for hitting people who duck their heads and initiate contact when they go in with their shoulder... Pitiful Glad Brady lost and slid going at Reeds manhood. you mad tom?

Simple answer to Joe's success, "offensive line plays' been lights-out". Yes, Caldwell calls a better game as well, but think about all the OL position shuffling that's gone on all year until now! Harb's had McKinney in the dog house forever, and it was silly - we didn't want to pay him with his play-time clause in his contract, he would've been eligible for another 1M if we did. Our guys are in their natural positions now and it's paying off. Most any QB will succeed with enough time, and even the greats, (Manning, Brees, Rodgers, Brady) falter when they're pressured, period.

I%u2019m really starting to believe in the team of destiny theory but much in redemption.

All major events that has occurred this year.
1. Art passes away.
2. Ravens Nation wins 2nd straight division title.
3. Ray announces his retirement.
4. Colts loses to Baltimore first round of the playoffs.
5. Peyton Manning ex-general of the Colts loses to Baltimore.
6. New England meets the Ravens redemption twice.
7. Ravens Nation wins the AFC Championship.

On 13 October 1996 Ray Lewis recorded his first NFL career sack on Jim Harbaugh, Baltimore lost that game 21 to 26. It was the first game BMore had against the Colts. I do not believe this game has anything to do with brother vs brother and is strictly caused by redemption.

I've been in love with Pernell McPhee since his first game as a Raven when he recovered a big fumble like 20 or 30 yards downfield

Glad he's finally back healthy.

Speaking of which, hoping Webby's recovery is on schedule. Totally thought our chances were limited without him, but that wasn't the case. Still can't wait to get him back next year.

Skip Bayless cracks me up. I can't even get mad anymore. His arguments are so pathetic, it's comical.

I am glad Skip decided to wait one more game, because we don't need that jinx.

Anna Burns can shove her apology up her....!

Pollard is 100% correct.

Every time Ravens play the Patriots I see a segment of Belichick and Brady game planning on what to do about Ed Reed...though it's obviously never been filmed, i cant help but think the idea of removing Reed from the equation has never crossed their minds. Even Brady-lovin Bayless said it was intentional. And now cry baby Brady snubbed the pro-bowl due to an "undisclosed injury", which I can only assume is a bruised ego...or maybe he stubbed his toe tryin to cripple Reed. Either way, fine [him]!!

It was a cheap shot Brady, real cheap and it's funny because it didn't work out in the end.

In that video, Bayless said that Flacco has had a QBR of like .4 in games vs the Texans and the week 15 Broncos. Now, does ESPN have a different war of measuring QBR, because the NFL QBR says 45.4 in Houston and 76.5 in Denver, which isn't even close to what Bayless said. Just correct me if I'm wrong, I don't really pay attention to what ESPN thinks.

I've said it before about Grossi. I won't tweet it, lest I offend him - but this is the way I see it -

He has a HOF vote and it is therefore his obligation to vote based on the merits of the individuals on the ballot. He is not an elected official placed into political office by the fans in Cleveland and compelled to represent their interests.

It simply comes down to whether or not he has the courage to do what is right and that is fairly assess the contributions that Art Modell made to the game, despite the potential backlash he may face in his own media market. Based on his lack of courage in the past, I am not sure if we can expect him to act any differently now.
