Patriot act

December 28, 2007|By Candus Thomson

Which moment would the Ravens like back? The timeout? The defensive holding call? Bart Scott's first unsportsmanlike conduct penalty? His subsequent game of flag football? The post-game whining?

When the Ravens melted down like an icy sidewalk treated with rock salt in the final moments of their gritty game Dec. 3 against the New England Patriots, the potential for revisionist history was born.

So many TiVo moments, only one poke of the replay button.

Since coach Brian Billick gets to keep his job and cornerbacks Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle and wide receiver Derrick Mason only had to pay a total of $45,000 in fines to the sin bin, it seems only fair that we turn the remote control over to linebacker Scott, who ponied up $25,000 for the honor.
