Flacco on SB in Denver: "Retarded"

We will hear a lot from Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco this week leading up to the Super Bowl, but after being called dull several times in the press by his own father, Flacco provided a sound bite that is anything but dull. When asked about the possibility of Denver as a host for a future Super Bowls on the heels of next year's cold weather Super Bowl in New York, Flacco said...

Ray Lewis avoids talk of report on deer spray

Of all the topics Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis might have been prepared to talk about at Super Bowl media day, deer-antler spray probably was not among them. He declined to directly address a Sports Illustrated report that he sought help from a company that makes the unorthodox product to speed up his recovery from a torn right triceps. Lewis was the NFL's leading tackler...

Ray Lewis Spoofed

Lock yo doors Kenan Thompson, nobody makes fun of Ray Lewis and lives to tell about it. Watch this hilarious Ray Lewis spoof from last nights Saturday Night Live.  Keenen does a great Ray impression and plays through the interview even with a detached retina.  I’m really starting to hope the Baltimore Ravens win the [...]

Report: Joe Flacco Asking for Higher Salary Than Peyton Manning in Contract Negotiations

Joe Flacco is a free agent after this season, and the Ravens quarterback is looking to cash in on that fact. After leading his team to a 10-6 regular season record and the Super Bowl, the 28-year-old Flacco is asking for upwards of $18 million per year in his next contract — because that’s how much Peyton Manning makes, of course. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport...

Ray Lewis goes with spray-on hairline at Super Bowl (Pictures)

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis met with the media at the Super Bowl on Monday, and he was rocking quite an interesting ‘do. The veteran’s hair was nice and tight as if he just got it all prepared for the big week. But there was one thing that stood out: his hair line seemed to have been sprayed on in some parts: Goodness, it looks like he already has a helmet on. Even...

Ravens’ Support for Joe Flacco’s Future Contract Makes It Sound Like They’re Not Sure About Winning Super Bowl

Joe Flacco may not be in line for Peyton Manning money, but the Ravens have been saying all the right things this week about getting him a new contract after this season ends. Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome‘s latest comments, however, sound like maybe he was whipping out the wrong cliché for the moment. “We’ll be able to get that thing done,” Newsome said Tuesday...

Media Day Provides Loose Atmosphere for Players, Coaches Leading Up to Super Bowl (Photos)

Super Bowl media day is an event simultaneously beloved and despised by the NFL players who earn the right to play for the league’s top prize. The Super Bowl contestants get a chance to clown around on the field for a few hours with members of the mainstream and alternative media, but some — particularly those with the star power of Ray Lewis or Colin Kaepernick — are forced...

Joe Flacco Contract Demands Expose Problem with "Quarterback Wins"

Quarterback wins don't exist. Team wins do. Quarterbacks wins don't. I feel like I'm beating a dead horse here but the equine just won't die no matter how hard those of us with a proper knowledge of the game of football smack away. Poor guy. The point is that I don't care how many playoff games the Baltimore Ravens have won with Joe Flacco at quarterback...

According to the San Jose Mercury News, a couple in the San Francisco area found a person on Craigslist that was supposedly selling four Super Bowl tickets for $5,900.  The seller was supposedly a Ravens fan, but they didn’t care, they wanted the tickets.

Starting Colin Kaepernick & Firing Cameron: Harbaugh's Have Guts

The San Francisco 49ers will play the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.This game has many subplots: Ray Lewis' last stand; second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick starting his first Super Bowl game; and brother versus brother. But the major plot of the game should be how both teams arrived in New Orleans. A destination that included two major questionable decisions.
