Thanks Mark! I would save your meager earnings and watch Denver end Gay's career from home.

Seattle is nasty as hell, I think they roll into ATL and win by 2 TD.  Pats over Texans by 24, IMO it will be ugly early for the Texans

GB-SF and Ravens-Donks are going to be epic

Nah, I'd rather be there. While I'm sure a grand in a weekend would cripple you, I'll be just fine while you sulk in your benny bear jersey and think up some more clever quips like calling the greatest MLB in history gay. Please post more, your epic contributions are sorely missed.

You tempted to head to Japan in March to see Wanderlei step out into the Saitama Super Arena one last time?

Think Ray may well have his send off next week....

Haha, I wish, I couldn't afford that. I can't go to Denver either, just started a new project that's going to eat up a shitload of time this week. No need to fly out on Saturday morning. Manning is always hell on us,  I wish we were playing NE. At least my team isn't home already crying the blues.

That was the greatest game I've ever seen. Joe Fucking Flacco and the GOAT got the job done. All class from manning waiting to congratulate Ray. Do I go next week or save up for the Super Bowl?

Some great games this weekend. Denver vs Baltimore was the Super Bowl for me. I still can't believe the Broncos defenders allowed that big pass near the end of regulation. Crazy.

They just underestimated the strongest arm in the NFL. Any other QB and that's an interception.

That's hard to pass up.

I can't lie, I am happy for Flacco. His wide recievers have made terrible drops in their last two playoff losses and on the drive before the bomb to Jones. He's a tough dude and doesn't get enough credit for his play.

Over here the season ticket holders who make it to the most away games get the first go at the clubs allocated tickets for finals.

Will you have a better shot at getting a Superbowl ticket through the Ravens if you go to NE?

No, just my regular spot in the season ticket holders raffle. The last time we were in the bowl it cost me $2,500 and I was making twice as much money then. If I actually got a ticket at face value it would be hard not to sell it. LOL

British underclassmen Menelik Watson (FSU) and Tom Wort (OU) have both declared for the NFL draft, Bjorn Werner should be drafted top 10 and Aussie Jesse Williams from Alabama is beast. Still a very niche sport abroad but good to see some athletes coming through.

I'm still not sold on Atlanta, though that was a clutch little drive to win. I think it's gonna be the Niners.  I have no idea if that Ravens karma is gonna work against the hoodie this time.

Dont see the 9ers letting Michael Turner run on them like the seahawks did but guess the Falcons got some decent practise in dealing with an athletic read-option QB.

Werner might go top 3.  A lot of mock drafts don't have him falling past the Raiders.

Yeah, Menelik Watson and Jesse Williams will kill it at the combine too.

Watson is 6'6 320lbs, runs a 4.7 forty and has great hands and feet have been a pretty serious basketball and soccer player. Only knock on him is that hes new to the sport and only played less than 20 games of american football in his entire life. Only gave up 1 sack all season starting at right tackle for florida state.

Williams benches 600lbs like its nothing and no one at the combine got over 500lbs last year.

$600, that's insane.  

Last year Pack-Giants tickets were going for just above face value and stupid me stayed home.   Won't make that mistake again.

It actually ended up being $525. The bus rides were brutal. I have a hard time sleeping sitting up anyway, but the seats were jammed so close together that was very little leg room. On the way back last night, the guy in front of me who was literally 5'2 reclined his seat. I don't blame him, but I had a little old lady sitting behind me with stuff on the floor so I spent 8 hours with a bar jammed in my knee or putting both legs in the aisle and twisting my back, not a wink.

But it was all worth it. Our fans at home are never real aggressive with visiting fans, but some guys snapped about an hour before the game. First some guys came into about 1,000 of us with this B-R-A-D-Y ensemble and they were driven off beer cans and turkey sandwiches. Then another guy came in with a huge mocking Ray Lewis retirement sign and he was chased down, they took the sign and torched it.

After the game we were running all over the place letting them have it.

And Muttley, NO I don't want Taylor, Vick or Smith. Joe "Fucking" Flacco!

guy has seriously turned it on and redeemed himself.

Flacco without question. As much as I love Ed and he's been playing hurt for years at a very high level, you can't let your QB go.

Ray retiring probably saved Ozzie Newsome a bit of a headache as would have had him, Reed and Flacco all with their contracts up. Do they have any other big names looking at free agency?

Best to give Flacco a long term deal and tag Reed as I think Reed may go somewhere else for a year or 2 if they dont

Flacco made some good money this playoffs and you can't franchise him they must signed him long term it's hard to get good QB and if you have one
you have to pay up

Ravens will get steamrolled in the Superbowl.

I give them credit for taking it to teams like Indy, Denver, and NE in the playoffs, but they were all relatively finesse type teams.  The 49ers will smack them in the mouth and it will be over by halftime.  An old Ravens defense vs a young, speed-based offense, with a behemoth Oline that averages 6'5" 318lbs on the Superdome turf?  No chance.  Those AFC playoff teams were tailor-made for the Ravens D to succeed, but they will get dominated on Superbowl Sunday.

SF 49ers -3.5 will look like a joke.
