||What it means|
||Kathy Orton of The Washington Post says Baltimore tight end Shannon Sharpe can talk. One of the NFL's most loquacious players, Sharpe wasn't shy about letting loose at Tuesday's media session on a variety of topics.
||"It just comes to me. I'm pretty aware of what guys do, where they went to school, if they're married, if they're unmarried. But the one thing I've always prided myself on is not talking about anyone's wife or their mom. But anything other than that is fair game." |
||Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post writes that former Jets head coach Al Groh on Tuesday remembered, with a sour pit at the bottom of his stomach, the seemingly perfect plan he and his assistant coaches had put together for the Jets to defeat the Ravens on Dec. 24.
||Only minutes into the game, the Jets led 14-0 and seemed to be on their way. Five Vinny Testaverde interceptions, a Testaverde-Kevin Mawae botched snap and two Jermaine Lewis punt returns for TDs later, the Jets' season was over. |
||Dan Rodricks of The Baltimore Sun says Larry Webster looked down upon the supreme madness of hundreds of reporters, videographers and sound engineers trying to get his teammate, Ray Lewis, to speak again of the nightmare after last year's game in Atlanta.
||Had he by now become a defensive tackle of wider acclaim, had his career not been marred and stalled by four violations of the NFL's drug abuse policies, Larry Webster on Tuesday might have been in Ray Lewis' seat. |
||Gary Myers of theNew York Daily News reports so far, the score is Marvin Lewis 3, John Fox 2, in the matchup of Super Bowl defensive coordinators. That's three head coaching interviews lined up for Lewis and two for Fox after the Super Bowl.
||Not only is it the Giants vs. the Ravens, but it's also Fox vs. Lewis. Their units won't face each other, of course, but if one plays much better than the other on the huge Super Bowl stage, then it will be a positive reflection on the coordinator. |
