PLAYERS: Joe Flacco
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
David Tyree’s unforgettable catch in Super Bowl XLII may have not only won his team a title, but it also earned the New York Giants franchise a spot in my list of top ten greatest franchises since the millennium. In this two-part series of the Top 10 Greatest North American Sports Franchises Since The Millennium,  I’ll explain to you which organizations of all four major North American professional sports leagues (MLB, the NFL, the NHL, and the NBA) have taken their teams from great to elite over the past 13-14 years. I have separated every team from each league based on three categories: a team’s total playoff appearances, division titles, and league titles since the 1999-2000 season. Things like the divisions they played in, or even the sport that the play, came into consideration when I ranked these organizations from 10-1, ten being the lowest, and one being the highest. So without further ado, here is part one of my list, beginning with number ten: 10. New York Giants I had a h...

Alabama nose guard Terrence Cody would make sure this game went down in history. Cody blocked a 44-yard field goal attempt, marking his...

Previewing the Ravens: Will Baltimore Repeat in 2013?

Baltimore’s victory in Super Bowl XLVII was bittersweet.  The Ravens had a reason to celebrate but it must also be put into perspective.  Ray Lewis will never play for the Baltimore Ravens again, neither will Ed Reed.  They weren’t just great players, they were tempo setters, the generals on the field and they brought intangibles to the team that personified the Ravens playing...

Everybody Loves Vonta Leach--Or Do They?

The true fullback is a dying breed in the NFL. It's something that is a little surprising when you consider the benefit they have to the running game as a lead blocker not to mention as a blocking back or short yardage threat in the passing game. But that is the way of the game these days. That does not mean that there are not still quality fullbacks out there. Some teams...

Cincinnati Bengals, FLAT: The Bengals, like the Steelers, have all the appearances of a well-rounded football team. The only difference is that Cincinnati is also better rounded when it comes to age.
