Just two days ago, I wrote that Anquan Boldin was the bee’s knees during the Super Bowl and throughout the playoffs, and possibly also the cat’s meow. During the championship game he finished with 104 receiving yards and a touchdown on six catches, and taking that further, a veteran wideout peaked when it mattered most in the post season.
- He averaged 17.3 yards per catch during the playoffs, and 14.2 during the regular season.
- Throughout his 15 regular-season games there was only one week when he had 100 or more receiving yards. In four playoff games (the equivalent of a quarter of the regular season) he had two 100-yard games.
- That resulted in an average of 95 yards per game in the playoffs (380 overall), after he set a pace of 61.4 per week during the regular season.
- Lastly, Boldin’s four post-season touchdowns matched his regular-season total.
Now, I’m writing about Boldin retiring if he’s cut. Ahhh, smells like early February.

Super Bowl XLVII had a little bit of everything. It had a game changing blackout, the reunion of a once popular R&B group, an almost comeback by a rookie quarterback and the final hurrah of a legendary linebacker.
This was also a night where sports journalists are transformed from seasoned pros into excited fans. Sure, they do their jobs and try to stay unbiased, but on Super Bowl Sunday (especially when the game is this fantastic), everyone leaps out of their seat as if they were 12-years old again.
Here’s a collection of Post Super Bowl reaction from a wide variety of media sources.
Ladies and gentlemen, the 2013 Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens.
Here’s the Vince Lombardi Trophy presentation with reaction from John Harbaugh, Ray Lewis and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco.

Jacoby Jones burns Chris Culliver on a 56-yard touchdown from Joe Flacco to make it 21-3 Ravens. Not only did Culliver bite on the fake, but he couldn’t rebound to make the tackle after jumping over him.
The Baltimore Ravens got on the scoreboard first, as Joe Flacco found Anquan Boldin for a 13-yard touchdown.
The Raptors new addition, Rudy Gay, let us know his pick to win the Super Bowl, and to the surprise of no one, he’s going with the Ravens. Gay was born and raised in Baltimore, and started playing competitive basketball there when he was 12 years old.
The former eighth overall pick in the 2006 draft was acquired by the Raptors in a three-team trade with the Grizzlies and Pistons on Wednesday.
