  • Who will be in this season's Super Bowl?

     Who will be in this season's Super Bowl?
    Patriots vs. Packers Ken Murray Baltimore Sun In the AFC, Rex Ryan has painted a bull's-eye on his Jets. No question, his defense has credentials. But his passing game is vulnerable and his quarterback is shaky in the red zone. More likely, it will...
  • Injured players left in limbo

    Last month, the hip injury that sidelined Patriots standout defensive end Ty Warren for the entire 2010 season was sufficiently rehabilitated to allow him to collect the diploma from Texas A&M he had years ago promised family members he would earn....
  • Aikman talks a great game

    Troy Aikman has spent a lifetime in the crosshairs of finger-pointers. At Oklahoma, UCLA and with the Cowboys, the quarterback always seemed to be in people's sights. In the wake of three Super Bowl championships and induction into the Pro Football Hall...
  • Which NFL teams will surprise, disappoint?

    Lions will surprise Ken Murray Baltimore Sun I think the Lions and Rams go to the playoffs in the NFC this season, but I like the Lions as biggest surprise because they play in a tougher division and have been down longer. Coach Jim Schwartz has...
  • Which happens first: Packers lose, Colts win?

    Wind out of Colts' sails Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times The Packers will lose before the Colts win. Even great teams are capable of a letdown, and when you factor in that Green Bay is likely to ease its foot off the gas if it locks up the top seed in the...
  • Double duty for McKinnie

    Double duty for McKinnie
    Left tackle Bryant McKinnie won’t be seeing double when he lines up in his customary spot in the Ravens’ home game against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night. The 49ers’ starting right defensive end is Justin Smith, and their...
  • First and 10: Monday afternoon NFL power rankings

    First and 10: Monday afternoon NFL power rankings
    Because doing a full, 32-team list of power rankings is too much work for a Monday afternoon, I will rank the top 11 teams in the NFL after each exciting football Sunday (that's where the "first and 10" comes in). Here are my rankings heading into the...
  • Harbaugh Bowl alert: Ravens, 49ers near Super Bowl

    Harbaugh Bowl alert: Ravens, 49ers near Super Bowl
    Ladies and gentlemen, we are a pair of Harbaugh wins away from two weeks of non-stop, around-the-clock Harbaugh family coverage. John Harbaugh’s Ravens and brother Jim’s San Francisco 49ers have advanced to the championships games of their...
  • Harbaugh isn't sure what parents plan to do

    Harbaugh isn't sure what parents plan to do
    Jack and Jackie Harbaugh would seem to have a dilemma on their hands this Sunday: travel to Foxborough, Mass., to watch eldest son John and the Ravens meet the New England Patriots for the AFC championship at 3 p.m. EST or travel to San Francisco to watch...
  • Alex Smith and Niners are playing a very dangerous game

    Alex Smith and Niners are playing a very dangerous game
         The San Francisco 49ers sent a strange message when they jumped into the Peyton Manning sweepstakes. They might as well have got a skywriter to tell everyone in the Bay Area that they don't think they are really as good as they looked on the way to...
  • Ted Ginn Jr. visited the Ravens on Friday

    Ted Ginn Jr. visited the Ravens on Friday
    The Ravens hosted San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return specialist Ted Ginn Jr. on Friday. The possibility of the former first-round draft pick leaving one Harbaugh (Jim) for another (John) is an intriguing one. The Ravens are definitely...
  • Reed has taken to badgering Webb as a motivation tool

    By the end of last week, Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb was hearing teammate Ed Reed's voice in his sleep. If it wasn't Reed critiquing Webb's technique or positioning, it was him giving pointers about dealing with Houston Texans wide receiver Andre...
