Bernard Pollard is one of the hardest hitters in the NFL, apparently he’s one of the toughest as well.
The Ravens safety — and Patriots killer — suffered six cracked ribs in the second week of the season. He reaggravated the injury against the Redskins and only missed the final four games of the season.
“It’s tough dealing with pain,” Pollard said. “For us as football players, we know we’re going to go through it. At the same time, that’s the name of the game. Six of them, yep. Hey, it’s up to us to go out there and play and we did.”
Patriots fans wish Pollard had decided to sit out of the AFC Championship Game. Pollard delivered a concussion-causing blow to Stevan Ridley‘s head that forced a game-clinching fumble.

The Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl champions, and Joe Flacco is the Super Bowl MVP. Most of us would not have predicted six months ago that this would happen, but that is the beauty of the NFL. While many have criticized Flacco for lacking personality and his own father even said he is a dull person, that isn’t stopping the 28-year-old from doing what Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks...

You read that right. There is no lost context here. ESPN analyst Merril Hoge said just that on Tuesday’s SportsCenter. Baltimore Ravens QB and Super MVP Joe Flacco is the best quarterback in the NFL. I’m still trying to pick myself up off the floor after seeing the video myself. Here it is: At least we can give Hoge credit for being objective, being that he played his entire...
