I just hope the Chargers become a more physical team on both sides of the ball. I think the Patriots have more than proved, that against finesse teams they have a much better chance of winning.
You might be right about that, except for one and half teams. The Steelers usually lose to NE still, I think; and the NY Jets... but they are the reason that I said "one and half teams.

Bernard Pollard is doing his best, but let's face it we all know why it isn't getting attention. Tom Brady is a quarterback. Even more importantly: he is a quarterback named Tom Brady.

What was more disturbing was when the Patriots TE lowered his head into Ray Lewis, and Lewis was flagged .... yet, Mayo launched into Pitta's head later, and did not draw a flag. Inconsistent.

Further, Brady tripping Reed was a blatant unsportsmanlike contact that wasn't called, right before the end of the first half. Had that been the other way around (Reed sticking his leg up in the air, and flipping Brady head over heels), we would be hearing it all day and night on every sports channel .... and Reed would have been flagged and fined. It has nothing to do with intent (and I do believe it was intentional), it was the ACT. Brady's tripping was the dirtiest play of the weekend, but only got a cursory mention by the announcers, as they were too busy discussing Patriots end of half clock management.
I might sound like a whiny Ravens fan for saying this, but in that game it truly seemed like the referees were favoring New England...and not just a little bit.

well kudos to the Ravens. They took away all our strengths and played one hell of a game on the road. Our offensive let us down again by not scoring TD's in the red zone.

That stuff about Torrey's brother is pathetic. I mean that is the kind of stuff that I thought only the state of Pennsylvania could produce.

This on the other hand is just good clean fun.

The NFL fined Brady $10,000 for his "aggressive slide".
