    It wasn't "heavy criticism". In fact, there was some praise. Besides, I don't recall many young players - - even #1 choices - - who were take-charge team leaders in their first two seasons.

    I agree with pfelix. It is easier to assemble a winner in the free agency era than it was back in the '70s. But it's harder, if not impossible, to keep that winning team together. Today, nobody could...

    I doubt they are fraternity brothers. The article you may be referring to suggested that they have been "virtual" frat brothers since Goodell became commissioner. Kraft was a member of Zeta Beta Tau...

    7up: You've got to be trolling with that spew about Bettis. Tell me how a RB accumulates 13,662 yards if he only gets to second level "one or two times a year". That's hilarious. As for being one of...

    I can see passing in that situation but not the route they used. Crossing pattern across the middle where traffic is most crowded, and tipped balls abound. Well, it wasn't a tip that did them in; it...

    One of the main reasons we bog down in the red zone is that our OL is not a roadgrader type. It's more of a trapping, counter, or dare I say, finesse line. Couple that with the facts that the Ravens...

    Ben was sacked five times last night and got hurt on the fifth one. He was hurried and knocked down numerous times. Was that Haley's fault? Was it Haley's fault that Ben got hurt in 2012? I guess so,...

    A bit over the top. It's easy to be a gunslingin' let-it-all-hang-out, play-to-win QB if you don't have passrushers knocking you down or hanging on your neck. Fact is we had no answer to Suggs,...

    Flacco " knows the rules favor the WR in downfield passing". Not last night when Bryant got run over by a defender who was beaten by a step or so.

    You're assuming that Bell would have been able to play two weeks after the injury. I don't assume that at all.

    He wasn't great but he wasn't "off all night" either, especially when you consider that his OL got dominated. A couple of plays could have made a big difference. He was right on target on the long...

    Actually, Blount was getting fewer and fewer touches as the season went on. Which presumably led to his early departure from the field in his last game. But other things must have been going on if...

    Unfortunately, it wasn't the end of Tate. He also did the hands of Stone trick in Q4.

    Funny, there's another thread griping that Tomlin "focused on the run" too much. 19 runs and one was a...

    Oh please. He had no magic left because he had no players left. Had no decent RBs from the get-go and Fitzgerald was hobbled all year - - finished with 784 yards and 2 TDs. It's amazing that this...

    One commentator on ESPN radio opined last night that he thought NE would rather not play Baltimore. I tend to agree. Don't see where Baltimore was the "inferior" team last night or all year. Ngata...

    We haven't been able to run against Baltimore since about 1999. We couldn't run against them this year even in the two games Bell played. I wouldn't judge Harris based on last night's game.

    19 runs, 48 passes, plus another five pass plays that ended up as sacks. Sorry, can't see that as being too focused on the run. We got manhandled at the LOS. We had turnovers. There were some...

    Parker flipped into the end zone in the Super Bowl against Seattle and I don't recall Cowher bringing the hammer down. He might have; I just don't recall. I wish the players wouldn't do it. It's not...

    The media has a herd mentality. Fasten their teeth into one story line and shake it to death. Nothing we can do about it, but at the same time, the media will not affect the outcome one iota.
