Since the Ravens are still facing the prospect of losing two of their starting linebackers, they should maybe look into drafting Dave Neal out of Maryland in April.  Judging by this hit he laid on some random pu$$y-a$$ d00k player last night, Neal subscribes whole-heartedly to Ray Lewis’ and the Ravens’ philosophy of “if you [...]

Stumbled upon this video today whilst scanning the interweb.  Three guys that call themselves “The Boooooog Pows” have put together a little diddy to pay homage to that backstabbing, money-grubbing, insult to Maryland, Mark Teixiera. B’More Birds’ Nest fully supports this video and the message it conveys. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, Mark!

Man, I’m just tryin to eat some dinner here, but the contract news just keeps rollin’ in. We just told you about B-Rob, and now NFL.com is reporting that the Ravens have indeed placed the franchise tag on T-Sizzle for the 2nd consecutive season. I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this, but I guess [...]

I’ve read this in a few places today, so I’ll go ahead and assume it is all but done. The Orioles and Brian Roberts have agreed on a contract extension, the terms of which are somewhere in the 4-years, $40 million range.  Roch at MASN says the O’s likely won’t make an announcement on the [...]

The Ravens released Chris McAlister today.

McAlister, a 3-time Pro Bowl standout, played 10 seasons for the Ravens after being selected in the 1st round (10th pick) [...]

Over the weekend, Pittsburgh kicker Jeff Reed was arrested for disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.  From the report: According to a state police press release, Reed damaged a towel dispenser inside the men’s room at a Sheetz gas station on Route 22 in New Alexandria after he became infuriated that it did not contain towels. [...]

For the most part, I’ve been a fan of ProFootballTalk.com.  Admittedly, I check it at least a couple times a week during the season.  However, with this latest batch of nonsense that site guru Mike Florio has posted, I may have logged on for the final time. Here, Florio hands out the “Pat Tillman” award.  [...]

Because it’s never to early to start hating on the Yankees: It appears even Mr. “I’ve never felt outmatched on the baseball field” A-Rod couldn’t say no to a needle in the ass a few years back. From Sports Illustrated: In 2003, when he won the American League home run title and the AL Most [...]

Here is a video from the NFL Network in which Ray Lewis talks to Jamie Dukes about his future.  On the topic of a hometown discount, Ray said this (paraphrasing): “I don’t play less.  So I don’t accept less.” Also, I’m pretty sure that’s a Boston Red Sux hat he is wearing during the interview. [...]
