Man, was it a surprising week-end in the NFL, and it looks like the Ravens need to sweep to get in the playoffs.
But no matter how black or gold my allegiance, no matter how nostalgic I feel about them. and no matter how deep the Rooney roots run in NFL history, there’s no excuse for their head coach’s conduct on Thanksgiving.
Ron Cook joined Ed and Steve this morning talk about Mike Tomlin and the AFC North.
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was fined $100,000 for interfering with a kick return in Baltimore. The NFL is also considering a modification or forfeiture of draft choices.
The Ravens are 6-6, and I am not convinced they are much better than an average team. That said, it should be enough to get them in the playoffs.
Mike Tomlin may not have been premeditated in comparison to spy gate or even bounty gate. The Steelers head coach may have just done a pretty stupid, hysterical move on the fly.
As the league discusses the possible punishments for Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin for being in the field of play during a kickoff return, new, incriminating footage has surfaced.
Every week Mike grades the Ravens performance, and here are his grades for the Ravens 22-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Thanksgiving night ended up providing the best of the three NFL games on the big holiday, but it was also the weirdest. There was a lot of bad blood, a coach stopping a kickoff being returned for a touchdown, a lot of injuries, and the strangest final two minutes that you may ever see in football.
The endless genius of the NFL can’t be completely quantified. But part of pro football’s popularity is burning its image in our culture and our consciousness. While baseball and basketball have their July 4 and Christmas brands, they are afterthoughts, or leftovers, compared to the NFL’s hallmark roll call.
After a big time battle against the New York Jets, the Ravens quickly turn their attention to the division Pittsburgh Steelers. With the short week to recuperate, it’s easy to believe that Baltimore will be limping onto the field on Thursday. But that doesn’t appear to be the case as the Ravens seem to be healthier than they’ve been all season.
Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com and the blog “Eye on Football” joined Zinno on “Last Call” to discuss the Ravens Thanksgiving night match-up with Pittsburgh and other NFL headlines.
