The Patriots and Tom Brady have been here before and won, how will this weekend work out for them? The Divisional round delivered some of the best football of the season.  Having the elite quarterbacks on the field definitely helped. This weekend we have a final four that should deliver more exciting football.  This is why the NFL is the most popular sport in the US. I previewed the Championship games on my radio show.  Here is my preview and picks. AFC - Baltimore and New England This is a rematch of last years Championship game.  Baltimore blew chances to win and tie the game last year.  Will they be able to play 60 minutes this season? The Ravens won last week with big plays on offense.  I still do not buy Flacco as an elite QB.  He has a big arm but I still have not seen enough to think he has enough to win a Super Bowl.   On Offense the Ravens need to establish Ray Rice running the ball.  They also have to put together some long drives.  Last we...

Has Tom Brady become his own worst enemy?

It’s often said that a man with nothing to lose should be feared.  That was once true of the New England Patriots Tom Brady.  Brady started his NFL postseason career with nine straight wins.  He was 3-0 in Super Bowls and was named the game’s most valuable player twice; all by the age of 27.  He was young, hungry and had nothing to lose — no legacy to protect, no hype...

Will Tom Brady finally play like Tom Brady against the Ravens

There is only one team Tom Brady hasn’t thrown more touchdowns than interceptions against. Can you take a guess? Ok, that was easy, right? In Brady’s 7 games against the Ravens (postseason included), he has thrown 7 touchdowns and 8 interceptions (he still leads his team to victory though, going 5-2, which in the end is all that matters). His completion percentage of 58.4 is...

Ravens fans’ “Call Me Maybe” parody “Bring on Brady” (VIDEO)

Son of a monkey, I thought we were done with the Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” parodies.  Ravens fans turned the clock back to when Manti Te’o was merely known as a good college linebacker and re-wrote this jam to say how ready they are for the Patriots and Tom Brady. Let us all remember how the Broncos fared after their fans dubbed a Tim Tebow-themed auto-tuned trash talking...

Tom Brady Predicted he would be Great after 2nd Career Start

  When Tom Brady took over for an injured Drew Bledsoe back in 2001, I believe you would have been hard pressed to find people who thought the young quarterback would be an all-time great. The interesting thing is, Brady himself believed it. At the time, Damon Huard was the Patriot’s third-string quarterback. In an interview with ESPN.com, he let it be known that Brady told him...

Ravens fans make 'Call Me Maybe' parody

The nation had more than its fill of “Call Me Maybe” and “Gangnam Style” parodies in 2012, but some people aren’t ready to let the phenomenon die now that we have entered the new year. On Wednesday, a trio of Baltimore Ravens posted a video on YouTube called “Bring on Brady.” For those of you who couldn’t guess, the song centers around them calling out Tom Brady....

Ravens DC Dean Pees on stopping Tom Brady: ‘Hire Tonya Harding’

Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees has his hands full with trying to stop the New England Patriots on Sunday, and he knows more than the average person about just how deadly Tom Brady and company can be. Pees was a defensive coach for the Patriots from 2004-2009, so he has experience watching Brady from the sidelines and going up against him in practice. So how does...

Did Tom Brady deliberately kick Ed Reed? (GIF)

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady stuck his foot out and kicked Ravens safety Ed Reed as he was sliding to the ground in the final minute of the first half of Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. The question is, was it an accident, or was it a cheap shot? In our opinion, it looked a bit dirty to us. Reminds us of the Dwyane Wade cheap shot in the NBA...

NFL Morning Lines

Will this be the last NFL game for Ray Lewis, or with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady get to another Super Bowl. The guys in Vegas have New England at more than a touchdown favorite, but the line has been moving in Baltimore’s direction. The other hot pick seems to be San Francisco, as they are now a 3.5 to 4 point favorite on the road against Atlanta, as everyone seems to be jumping...

Patriots-Ravens Live: Tom Brady Looks to End Ray Lewis’ Career Tour in AFC Championship Game

8 a.m. ET: The day of reckoning is upon us, at least for those of us who intently follow the NFL. The NFL’s conference judgment day will begin with the San Francisco 49ers’ visit to Atlanta for the NFC crown, but all eyes will be peeled for the Ravens’ trip to Foxboro to mark a repeat of last season’s AFC title game. Tom Brady has been preparing for his chance at a sixth...

Round Table: Should the Rams draft a high-injury-risk, high-reward player like Marcus Lattimore?

Veteran fantasy football drafters know about risk and reward. They know that waiting on a quarterback is a risk, as you let premier talents like Tom Brady and Drew Brees slip off the board. They know that drafting Peyton Manning, two years, one team change and at least four neck surgeries removed from his last NFL action, represented a huge risk, albeit one with potentially great...
