Just when you thought you couldn't possibly hate CBS Sports' coverage of the Baltimore Ravens more, along come Dan Marino and Boomer Esiason with their ignorant pre-game predictions Sunday. “I love the Bengals to come of age today,” Esiason said. “I think Baltimore's going to be the fifth seed,” Marino added. “Baltimore has not been a good road team all year.  And A.J. Green is coming back for Cincinnati. That means Pittsburgh's got to beat Cleveland, which I think will happen.  They will be the No. 2 seed, and Cincinnati gets in the playoffs today.”  Right, guys.

UPDATE (1 a.m.) at end of post with review of NFL Network's excellent post-game show and comment on Flacco profanity after game. It was a fabulous day and night for TV football, with the Ravens winning the Super Bowl , 34-31. But little thanks for that goes to CBS, the network that had broadcast rights to the game. The network's pregame show was overproduced and under-imagined, with no unifying vision. One segment that found Boomer Esiason and Shannon Sharpe walking the streets of New Orleans handing out Pizza Hut pizzas to people willing to yell "hut, hut, hut," set a new low in debasing broadcasters and turning what is already an over-commercialized production into a nonstop advertisement.

Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. was a guest on "Boomer & Carton" on WFAN in New York this week. He talked about Orioles manager Buck Showalter and reiterated that the pitching staff will have to hold up for Baltimore to compete in the AL East. For me, the most interesting part of the interview was when hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton asked Ripken if it was special to play at the old Yankee Stadium . "Absolutely," Ripken said. "I’ll preface it by saying it’s not good to play in it when you’re good and they’re bad because I’ve been there during the 80s when that was the case.

With one exception, blond-haired Gunnar Esiason is like almost any other 4-year-old boy. He's big on the birthday party circuit, likes to have friends over, and is active in all kinds of sports.The exception is a flawed gene that makes all the difference to him and his parents, Boomer and Cheryl Esiason.Gunnar is one of approximately 30,000 Americans afflicted with cystic fibrosis, a deadly genetic disease that attacks the respiratory and digestive systems of children and young adults.The defective gene controls the flow of mucus in the body.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen showed off his team's new dining facilities yesterday. Later this month, he'll show off the Terps' new uniforms. In between, Friedgen will devote most of his waking hours to picking a new quarterback. All that's new isn't the only focus for Maryland's football team, which begins three weeks of spring practice today. But as Friedgen starts his fourth year with the program, it's what stands out. The new dining facilities represent one of the final touches on a $3 million expansion of the Gossett Team House that began two years ago. The new uniforms are part of a $2.6 million deal with Under Armour that was signed in January, and they should be unveiled - with the help of former Terp Boomer Esiason - when Maryland holds its spring game April 24. Picking a new quarterback, however, is the subject that will loom over all the others this spring, both in media coverage and in the conversations the coaching staff has behind closed doors.

Longtime Maryland supporters and one of the program's biggest former stars seem to be willing to give the Terps' new football coach, Randy Edsall, a chance. Yet many of them remained angry on Monday at the manner in which first-year athletic director Kevin Anderson got rid of former coach Ralph Friedgen, and some are disappointed that the Terps made what was considered a safe hire in the 52-year-old Edsall. They would have preferred to take a chance on resurrecting former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach's successful yet controversial career.

NEW YORK -- Boomer Esiason can't believe what he's hearing. The guy yapping at the former Maryland football star in staccato New York patter is a die-hard fan of the Jets, one of three NFL teams Esiason quarterbacked. The Jets had just one victory, and this character across the desk wants them to insert young Kellen Clemens at quarterback. "Give us something," co-host Craig Carton shouts, "because the games don't matter anymore." From behind his WFAN AM microphone, Esiason chides: "That sounds like a guy who was in the band and not on the football team.

CBS was carrying a football game, not a history lesson. Around here, the buildup to yesterday's Ravens-Indianapolis Colts game was heavy on remembrances and regrets related to the Baltimore version of the Colts, but CBS gave the past just a nod or two. And it wasn't until the post-game that someone -- studio host James Brown -- stumbled and called the current team the Baltimore Colts. Was it a bad omen that, just before kickoff, CBS showed clips from the last playoff game for the Baltimore Colts at Memorial Stadium, with the Raiders' Dave Casper scoring in Oakland's victory?

When you get a new job, your bosses might hand you one of those training guides for new employees, some type of orientation packet that's usually pretty easy to toss without ever actually opening. Steve McNair got something like that from his new employer - a thick binder packed with a few hundred pages. Unlike the handbook you or I might get, McNair has to memorize his completely, and he's working with a pretty tight deadline. In a quiet period when most of the NFL is focused on squeezing all it can out of the offseason, McNair has been cramming for a pretty big test, one that will last four months and is packed with pressure and expectations at every turn.

The Cincinnati Bengals are a never-ending source of wonder in the self-help NFL. For a decade now, they have resisted the benefits of picking high in the draft. For years, they have been impervious to the gains of free agency. And while teams rise and fall on a regular cycle, the Bengals remain immune to the laws of NFL parity. In Week 8, they even found a way to send back a victory. They tackled their own man. On Tennessee's one-inch line. Corey Dillon had an open lane and blockers in front of him on fourth down from the Titans' 1-yard line Sunday.
