Woot, go go Patriots. Time for a rematch of the AFC Championship. On the other side of news, if your going to talk trash, at least be someone people know on your own team. From ESPNBoston.com:
--
New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight

— Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013


The war of words between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots already is under way.

While New England was in the process of defeating the Houston Texans on Sunday to set up an AFC Championship Game rematch with Baltimore, Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo ripped the Patriots on Twitter, particularly criticizing their no-huddle offense.

"New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight," Ayanbadejo tweeted on his account, @brendon310.

Ayanbadejo will get an opportunity to see New England's offense in person next weekend when the Ravens visit the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season. New England won last year's meeting, 23-20, thanks to a missed field goal by Baltimore's Billy Cundiff as time expired.

The Patriots gained 457 yards of total offense in Sunday's 41-28 victory over the Texans, as Tom Brady passed for 344 yards while orchestrating a hurry-up offense that confounded Houston throughout the contest.

But Ayanbadejo was unimpressed, referring to the Patriots' approach as "a gimmick."

"Are you watching the game pats vs texans?," Ayanbadejo tweeted. "If so you see the hurry snap offense catch em b4 they set up. It's a gimmick."

"Their offense is good enough to be successful with out that," he later tweeted.

Ayanbadejo proceeded to make a critical references to the Spygate scandal and Patriots coach Bill Belichick's decision to cut wide receiver Tiquan Underwood one day before Super Bowl XLVI.

"You know the same organization that did spygate and cut a guy the day b4 the Super Bowl," he tweeted.

Ayanbadejo also referred to the Patriots' 2007 season, when they completed the only 16-0 regular season in NFL history but lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

"18-1," he tweeted.

The Ravens rallied past the Patriots for a 31-30 victory in Week 3 this season. Ayanbadejo, who did not record a tackle in that contest, posted several tweets stating that he "Can't Wait!" for the latest rematch between the rivals.

Ayanbadejo also reiterated his distaste for New England's hurry-up offense, asserting that there is no place for it "in a sport that is predicated on mano y mano."
--
Since when is the hurry up offense (which has been in football many years now) a gimmick >.> Don't be mad because your defense is fail at reacting. Why does it always seem the Ravens constantly whine about something not being 'fair'.

If your defense falls apart because you don't have enough time for your committee meetings, even though you have in-helmet radios, you deserve to lose.

Remember, the offense has just as much opportunity to screw up in the hurry-up as the defense does.

Well said, sir, and it has been covered by many analyst this season the hard work and precision that goes into the Patriots hurry up, to do it as quickly and effeciently as they do. The plays ran count in some games this year when doing it were eye-popping.

Nice to see the most crooked team in NFL history losing to the Ravens. Hopefully the score will keep up and we can say good-bye to Bill Belicheat and the Patriots.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Most crooked team in NFL history? Umm.. Who was the 2nd most penalized team this year? That would be the Ravens. Who has the record for most penalties in a season? I believe that's the Raiders a few years ago.

Name me one Patriot who's been arrested on rape charges, or killed their girlfriend, or killed a teammate while driving drunk, or shot themselves in the leg while brandishing a loaded gun in a club.

If your measure of "most crooked" is the act of recording, on videotape, something that is normally done with a clipboard, notebook and pencil, well, that certainly says something.

The truth hurts. Deal with it. New England is the most corrupt team in the league. Everybody and their grandmother knows they cheat.

Stop dodging the issue by trying to bring up non-football, off the field stuff about which no one cares.

Not sure about that, but Belichick sure is a poor sport. Refuses an interview on the post game show? Maybe he didn't want us to see him and Tom crying in the locker room?

He snubbed CBS, but at least he did actual show up for the NFL post game press conference to say they were just outplayed [link]

Belicheat is a scumbag and an all around grump. I caught snippets of his post-game comments. I heard him complaining about officials' calls. Yup. That was the difference.

Well, the playoffs haven't been fun for me and the worst possible outcome has come to fruition.

I've had the displeasure of meeting Jim Harbaugh on a couple of occasions (back in the 80's) and he was just a real jerk. The typical bully jock that you see portrayed in movies who thinks he's better than everyone else. Not a fan to say the least.

And the Ravens? I've been sick of Ray Lewis for years, not to mention he escaped prosecution early on when someone was murdered and everyone seems to have forgotten that. The Media eats him up and I don't understand why. He's a thug and a drama queen.

Oh well, it is what it is, but it's certainly not enjoyable watching a Super Bowl when I hope both teams lose.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

That's why the Pittsburgh Steelers, the epitome of a classy football franchise and one rich with tradition, should be the AFC representative. Ah, well, there's next year when they will take their rightful place at the top of the NFL. :)

Wow, a couple of encounters about 30 years ago. Sounds like a solid foundation for a character critique. Maybe not...

Sounds more like someone who was jealous of the jocks in high school and still holds a grudge.

LOL, no, I was a jock in high school too in that I played sports (and in college). But I was a bit more well rounded than "jocks" and wasn't a dickhead to everyone I met. There's a difference. Either way, I'm not going to justify my reasons for disliking someone to you. He was a jerk then and from what I've seen the last few years is still a jerk. Maybe not, but that's the impression I get.

No skin in the game... but I picked both games correctly. I thought the blowout would have been the 49ers game, though... I thought the Ravens/Patriots game would have gone down to the end.

Oh well... I have no real rooting interest, but will hope for a competitive game in 2 weeks.

Yes. And when you're 'holding' you're cheating. When you jump offsides or do a chop block, you're cheating. When you take unauthorized drugs you are cheating.

When you are caught cheating, you are assessed a penalty. The NFL determined that recording some practices were cheating and the Patriots paid the penalty.

Now, I grant you, I didn't see the post-game but it's not hard to believe Belichik being grumpy. I would be too if my best receiver dropped a crucial 3rd down conversion that was in his hands.. If another 3rd down conversion was called back due to a STUPID holding call (the call was correct, the holding was stupid). Yeah, I'd be grumpy. I'd LIKE to think I could handle myself better but Bill DOES have a history of this.

LV - for all your angst against the Patriots, you really do sound like the local Red Sox fans and the way they complain about the Yankees.

And the Steelers? Yeah, rich football tradition - I won't argue there. But THEY should be the AFC reps? Ummm... You have to play the games... When their TEAM returns to the level of play that is their TRADITION... ...they'll be in 14th place overall. They have a .523 winning percentage. They're behind, in order, the Bears, Cowboys, Dolphins, Packers, 49ers, Ravens, Giants, Vikings, Raiders, Browns, Patriots, Broncos and Colts.

Although, to be kind, they're tied for 4th (with the Packers and Rams) in playoff appearances with 27 (behind the Giant's 31, the Cowboy's 30 and the Browns' 28.

They're 5th in NFL/Super Bowl championships with 6, behind the Packers (13), Bears (9), Giants (8) and Browns (8).

...just to interject a few facts amongst the feelings here :)

Thanks, Jack. You're the other end of the spectrum of good sportsmanship!

But Harbaugh did not use any of the plays I sent him!
