This is. The Steelers gutted the Chargers yesterday in the final playoff game of the weekend. The conference championship rounds are set, Philadelphia/Arizona and Baltimore/Pittsburgh. If defense wins championships, I think the deck is stacked for whomever wins the AFC to win the Super Bowl. Not to sleep on Philadelphia’s defense, but it is no comparison to Baltimore or Pittsburgh’s tenacious D. I think I would want to see Arizona’s high flying offense square off against the AFC brutes. That might make for an interesting Super Bowl Sunday…or a completely one-sided affair like most Super Bowls have been.

Former Baltimore Raven’s Cheerleader Molly Shattuck has decided to use her powers for good instead of evil. She’s a mom, she’s formerly the oldest member of the Ravens cheerleading squad at 38, she’s a rich socialite, she’s hot, she’s climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and she’s active in public service. Basically, she is one of the greatest people on the planet that should make you take a hard look at your life and realize how little you have done with it. Well, she’s so amazing that she decided to show up on Fox’s television show Secret Millionaire to slum it for a week, find some needy people who deserve a break and then give them one.
In this case, Molly gave out checks of $20,000 each to two different people, a yard full of toys for a bunch of needy kids and a check for $100,000 for a lady who runs a food pantry but her own house is falling apart around her.
Amazing woman huh? This pretty much means her kids will always win the “My Mom is better than your Mom” argument right there. What has your mom done lately? What have YOU done lately? Wait…what the hell have I done lately? I mean i woulda gone and climbed Mt. Kilimanjarp but, ya know, the freakin Redskins started out so well this year, i couldn’t leave and not see their inevitable collapse. Sigh…

The ascent of Shane Falco and injured reserve have relegated Ravens backup QB Kyle Boller to has-been status. He’s probably played his last game in a Ravens uniform but that hasn’t stopped him getting his swerve on.
Boller was shakin’ that ass at the 2008 Gridiron Sing-Off which raises money for charity. It’s surprising that he didn’t fall over or fumble the mic. The rest of the Ravens gave the crowd their best (or worst depending how you feel about it). I suffered through it so why shouldn’t you?
Steve Slaton, by all accounts, had a pretty miserable game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. He rushed for all of 7 yards on 4 carries. Coach Gary Kubiak has an excuse for the young baller:
“He was really worn down, to be honest with you,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He struggled last week in practice – just sharpness, speed, those types of things. He didn’t miss any time or anything, but we just felt like we were going to do everything we could to split those reps up even more so…”
“I would hope that him not playing as many reps this week gets him back to full speed, but the kid needed a break,” Kubiak said. “He’s played a lot of football in a short period of time. I expect him to bounce right back.”
Somebody call the wahhhbulance here, Slaton has carried the rock just 124 times this season. I don’t hear rookie running back Matt Forte calling for a breather and he’s had 65 more carries than Slaton. Kevin Smith in Detroit can’t get enough playing time for that moribund franchise and is begging for more than the 93 carries he’s had. Chris Johnson is a beast with his 160 carries. What is the problem here with Steve Slaton? Maybe he got a little afraid when he heard Bart Scott’s comments about him.
Slaton is third in the league among rookie running backs and averaging 4.4 yards a carry and he needs to be on the field if the Texans are going to have a chance to win. His needing a break couldn’t have helped out Sage Rosenfels in that blow out last week. This kid needs a strong cup of Red-Bull and coffee so he can wake up to the fact that he is not in college anymore. Its the NFL. You get tired in the offseason. You play on Sundays, you don’t sleep.
“When the Ravens played the Miami Dolphins’ ‘Wildcat’ offense – which splits out Chad Pennington as a receiver – [Coach John] Harbaugh said they tried to throw the Dolphins quarterback into the Gatorade on the sideline.”
Whoa Nellie! Keith Jackson says put your money on Gatorade beating Pennington every time.
