    Can't imagine a situation in which I'd pull for the Ravens, except maybe vs the Cowboys in the SB. If that game ever happened, it would probably take a whole lot of alcohol to endure it.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    absolutely not. while the odds are stacked against it - i'm for a houston/denver AFCCG. screw the pats. screw the rats. of course it's likely one of those two will be in the big dance - and then I hope the packers or the saints lay a 50 burger on them.

    the only possible way I will have any interest in the superbowl this year is if it's a bellicheat/harbaugh free game. that includes the douche harbaugh out west as well.

    The rule to protect QBs was made after a Pittsburgh defensive lineman took out Carson Palmer's knee. Apparently you don't remember your own team's history.

    The rules allowing WRs to run freely were "re-emphasized" after the Patriots destroyed the Colts in the playoffs following the 2003 season.

    The case against: It's Baltimore.
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    ...and this is why Steeler fans can't stand the Pats*

    Not you, but in general. I think you are the only Pats* fan that thinks Goodell can't stand Billicheat.

    I'm still scratching my head over Goodell allowing McDaniels to jump on board for the playoffs after being fired by another team.

    ..and the tackling low is called the Brady rule, not the Palmer rule because it was changed after the hit to Brady.

    Brady rule: Steps taken to protect QBs' knees

    DANA POINT, Calif. - Tom Brady hasn't even thrown a pass in his comeback, and he's already affected change for the 2009 NFL season.

    In part because of the season-ending left knee injury that Brady suffered in the Patriots' 2008 season opener against the Chiefs, the league's Competition Committee adopted a clarification of the current rule on hits to a quarterback in the knee area or below. The clarification specifically prohibits a defender on the ground who hasn't been blocked or fouled directly into the quarterback from lunging or diving at the quarterback's lower legs.

    Win this round and they will a poorer draft position. After this round, I'd like to see them thoroughly embarrassed at fate's earliest convenience.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    Just talked about this with my daughter last night. No way do we root for the *'s or ratbirds. Definately not watching the SB if the ratbirds are in it.

    Hoping for Saints v Texans SB.

    Flippy, I don't think the players care as much as we fans do, whether the ratbirds win or not. Except maybe Ward.

    Sorry, cannot bring myself to root for the Rats or the Pats*. That would be like applauding cancer.
