Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard was fined $15,250 by the NFL for his hit to the head/neck area of New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, the Boston Herald reported Friday. Pollard was penalized for the hit in the third quarter of Baltimore's 28-13 win over New England in last Sunday's AFC Championship Game. However, he was not fined for his helmet-to-helmet hit that knocked Patriots running back Stevan Ridley out of the game. Pollard was not penalized on that play.

Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis told his teammates to make sure they didn't hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy prematurely. The trophy paid a visit to team headquarters when CBS wanted to tape the players interacting with the Super Bowl trophy Wednesday, but the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year told players it wasn't appropriate to do until or unless they...
Never has an athlete been more ready to grab the bully pulpit provided by the excessive word orgy that is the lead-up to the Super Bowl than Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

While talking to the media today, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was asked if he plans on retiring after the Super Bowl, like his teammate Ray Lewis.
“I’ll be playing next year. Next question,” said Reed, per the Baltimore Sun.

Check out this guy’s haircut that was created to look like Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. His barber ought to be an artist. The barber shaved an almost perfect portrait of Lewis on the back of the customer’s head. He added Lewis’ No. 52 on the side. Now that’s a tribute.
Ravens safety Ed Reed, who will turn 35 next September and whose possible retirement has been overshadowed by the Ray Lewis media monster, told reporters on Thursday that he won't retire after the Super Bowl.
I'll be playing next year. Next question, Reed said.
It's good that he's being definitive because earlier in his discussion somebody asked him if this...
It should come as no surprise, but the numbers are still jarring.
Anyone who thought about it for more than a second or two would guess that the SEC has the most players in the Super Bowl. After all, when you've been the nation's best college football conference for the better part of a decade, you ought to have a healthy presence on the two best teams in the NFL.
