Forty-five years later, Dan Sullivan can still hear his Colts teammate's declaration prior to the 1968 NFL championship game in Cleveland. "I'm going home Sunday," said running back Tom Matte, who hailed from Cleveland, "so don't you S.O.B's embarrass me out there. " They did not. Baltimore won, 34-0 as Matte ran for 88 yards and three touchdowns through holes carved out by Sullivan and other Colts linemen. "We played a near perfect game," said Sullivan, the right guard. "And every time Matte scored, he ran straight to the stands and shook hands with the fans.

The National Football League and more than 4,500 retired players, including former Ravens and Baltimore Colts, reached a $765 million settlement Thursday over concussion-related lawsuits. The settlement comes a week before the NFL kicks off the 2013 season in Denver with a game between the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens and the Broncos. As one of the litigants, former Ravens safety Bennie Thompson's said he was satisfied, but his enthusiasm was tempered, though, by the reality that this financial settlement represents just 2 percent of the combined value of the 32 NFL teams, an estimated $37.4 billion, according to Forbes.

Brandon Copeland knows he can't be his grandfather. If the 2009 Gilman graduate is to claim a spot as an undrafted rookie free agent on the Ravens' final 53-man roster at the end of the preseason, it can't be in the way Roy Hilton joined the Baltimore Colts as a defensive end in 1965. At least, not exactly. "Now I'm at a totally different position," Copeland said recently after practice at the Under Armour Performance Center, where the former Penn defensive end is trying out as a middle linebacker.

Here's what others are saying about the death of former Baltimore Colts defensive lineman Art Donovan: * Clark Judge of CBSSports.com talked about Donovan's value to football . But he was much more than a damned good football player. He was one helluva guy. He was kind. He was friendly. And he was a riot. Donovan was to story telling what Jim Brown was to running backs. Nobody told one better. He had a laugh the size of Memorial Stadium and a kind and generous heart -- always willing to help out when and where he could.

The first time I met Artie Donovan, I got all of it - a big serving of his affable nature, his way of taking genuine interest in a complete stranger, a dose of his amazing memory and his way of connecting life experiences with the food and drink that accompanied them.

When I told him my native state was Massachusetts, he wanted to know what town.
