I couldn't get away from the nonsense of rehashing Ray Lewis' involvment in an incident 13 years ago where two people got taken off of here. The rehashing itself wasn't the nonsense, just that people want to keep rubbing his nose in it. Out came the haters- as distinguished from bona fide criticism- howling about how he should be locked up and he's a murderer. That's why they don't give y'all gavels.
Like most of them, Bokolis isn't interested in the facts of the case. Unlike them, I'll admit as much- here's why. Sometimes, what is worse than coming up against some more serious muthafuckas than you is to hang with some more serious muthafuckas. If you get into some shit with some killers, unless they're in the business of knocking off cats, you can work shit out. If it's your boys that's cooking the beef, if they're willing to take it farther than you're willing to go, you can't tell them shit...because while they're at it, they'll clip your ass too.
What I'm saying is that Ray was hanging with just such a couple of cowboys and found himself saying oh! shit! when he'd rather have just seen that shit squashed. After helping in the cover-up- a criminal trial and civil trial later, he knows he lucked thefuck out.
Despite that he's tried to
If need be, I wouldn't put it past them to put a couple of dead hookers in someone's room.
Ravens (+3.5) over 49ers: I've gotten 4, but I'll use the most common line here. The 49ers should have lost last time out; the Ravens should have lost in the divisional round. Both of the 49ers' wins involved the opposition bitching out. The hiring of Jim Caldwell as offensive coordinator has brought out the best in Flacco, who, on his last two postseasons, has gotten Bokolis to leave him alone. It comes down to whether you believe that the 49ers can keep the Ravens defense off-balance as they did with the Packers and Falcons, or that the Ravens will find something that works against Kaepernick and can continue to ride a productive Flacco to again do better than the previous week.
