Report: No progress made between the Ravens and Ray Rice

Reflecting on the Superbowl a week later

After the game ended I avoided exposing myself to sports news for a few days.  So it wasn’t until about Wednesday that I realized people were blaming Wes Welker for the loss.  That’s crazy to me.  As the play in question was happening, I though to myself that the throw was too high, and it never crossed my mind again.  Welker is a tiny guy.  I’ve met him a couple times...

Part III: If Gisele could have Played and Belichick would have Coached
