  1. I thought the NFL wants the Patriots to win this game!? I’m pretty sure that’s what Suggs said after last weeks game. I’m sure he and the Ravens’ fans will forget all about that catch reversal if their team wins.

  2. Here appears to be what John Harbaugh was complaining about when he got flagged: Harbaugh calls Patriots’ four-lineman shell game unprecedented http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/01/10/harbaugh-calls-patriots-four-lineman-shell-game-unprecedented/

    “[I]t’s a substitution type of a trick type of a thing,” Harbaugh told reporters after the game. “So they don’t give you the opportunity, they don’t give you the chance to make the proper substitutions and things like that. It’s not something that anybody’s ever done before. The league will look at that type of thing and I’m sure that they’ll make some adjustments and things like that.”

    Harbaugh said he simply hoped to have a chance to try to make a substitution based on who the eligible receivers would be.

    “[W]e wanted an opportunity to be able to ID who the eligible players were, because what they were doing was they would announce the eligible player and then time was taken and they would go over and snap the ball before we even had the chance to figure out who was lined up where, and that was the deception part of it,” Harbaugh said.

  3. Piss poor job as far as refs are concerned . First no call for finger to Bradys eye and then the dirty birds kicked him. Then when the guy wrapped up Gronkowki when he tried to catch the ball. Now you have a Ravens coach crying because he doesnt know the rule book. Poor baby!!
