Didn't a similar article appear in the Denver post last week? f that prick.
The Brady rule was created because Pollard took out his knee with a dirty hit.
The League cannot afford to have franchise quarterbacks out for the season.
Quarterbacks need protection.
before the game:
The Ravens are worn out and wounded. Lewis has lost a step or three. Haloti Ngata, Dannell Ellerbe and Terrell Suggs are hurting. Ed Reed and Ma’ake Kemoeatu are 34. Terrence Cody is obese. They just played 77 minutes, on the road, at altitude, in sub-zero wind chill. Right now they need to face the Patriots’ no-huddle like Tony Siragusa needs a McRib.
after the game:
End of a Patriots aura
the Ravens were superior where it mattered. They were tougher, meaner, nastier, more vicious. They showed, to use Lance Armstrong’s term, a ruthless desire to win. The NFL is always a brutal and violent game, but it gets even more physical in the playoffs. Baltimore enforcer Bernard Pollard changed the game Sunday when he gave up his body and destroyed Stevan Ridley, knocking out the ball and the Patriots’ best running back with one vicious assault.
The Patriots don’t have a player like Pollard and haven’t had one since Rodney Harrison retired. They could use one, maybe two or three. They need to understand that the postseason is when the games end and the street fights begin. No coincidence that the two best street fighters — Baltimore and San Francisco — are still standing. Everyone else is either home or in the hospital.
