Haha ... Shannon Sharpe calling out Bill Bellicheck for not talking to the media after the loss.
"You make it real easy for people to root against you." Right on, Shannon!

Wow, what a 2nd half by the Ravens!

Just a couple quick thoughts on the game while its fresh...

The OC is a genius for Baltimore. Once Flacco went out of the gun and passed like heck in the 3rd Quarter, and they had that long drive, that's when the momentum changed.

The 1st half the Ravens couldn't really get anything going to well...Phil Simms called it brilliantly, he said everything was just very hard for the Ravens in the 1st half...

The Defense of the Ravens hits extremely hard....however that hit on Pitta by Mayo was jarring.....

Belichick has to do "The 5th Quarter" for one of our local stations right after the game. No time for the media before.

Shannon's just po'ed because he called the Pats to win on NFL Today. Sour grapes.

Patriots were 9-10 point favorites.. Probably everyone not a Ravens fan thought that the Pats would win. Even I had my doubts.

Flacco just proved he is the real deal. 2 Straight 3 TD 0 Int games.

I had my doubts we would win. Too much choking going on the past few years.

You must just be a fan of a team he's gotten the better of or hasn't had the success of the Brady-era Patriot teams, or you don't just like a winner. The guy was a Hall Of Famer more than half a decade ago and continues to play at the highest level, where are Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers, the guys with the most commercials now? Or newcomer RG3 with a subway ad every 5 mins, they're all eliminated. If your a fan of football you should be a fan of Tom Brady, the guy is a classy professional who is one of the greatest players ever, he does things the right way.
I don't have to be a fan of a damn thing and don't you try and tell me otherwise. Screw Brady, loved watching him lose.

I am NOT a Ravens or Pats fan and definitely thought the Ravens could win just by the way they played in the 2011 AFC Championship.

The line on the Pats opened at 10 and went down to 8 points by kickoff....

There were MANY people who thought it would be a close game (and prob thought the Ravens could win outright)

Are there anymore Raven/Flacco doubters out there anymore...?

Bueller? Hello?

I looked at the Patriots website and tamiznluv is right. According to the Patriot web site:

"WBZ- and TV-38 broadcasts "The 5th quarter" after every Patriot game. The show is done by WBZ sports reporter Steve Burton along with Scott Zolak and Steve DeOssie. It includes live coverage of the Patriot post game press conference with Bill Belichik and Tom Brady."

Thanks, HH. Steve Burton is the son of the late Ron Burton of the Patriots. We seem to be a very tightly knit group up here in the Boston area.

The only game Belichik does not head for the 5th Quarter is after a Super Bowl win. Sad to say, that is getting to be a long time ago.
