Nice, but I think you missed an opportunity on media day to ask Ravens running back coach, Wilbert Montgomery, whether Flacco reminded him a little of Plunkett in Super Bowl XV.

I thought this game needed more physical players, but you convinced me it just needs more Physical Graffiti.

It's been a while (call it 30 years) but my memory as a 10 year old was that Eagles lost to the Raiders, not because they were mentally exhausted from the NFCC but were physically banged up.
