ESPN and local advertisers in Denver and New England have tried to throw Ray Lewis a retirement party; however, Lewis didn’t get the invitation. He’s ending his career on his terms, and on the biggest stage of his life.

John Harbaugh has always been upstaged by his little brother Jim. John wasn’t as athletic, he wasn’t a first-round draft pick, he wasn’t as succesful as a collegiate coach, he wasn’t a hot head coaching candidate and he wasn’t named the AP NFL Coach of the Year.

Joe Flacco is treated as if he’s the worst quarterback to ever play in the NFL. He’s always doubted, ridiculed and even has been questioned by a large chunk of his own fan base. Now, he’s the winningest road playoff quarterback in NFL history. He’s going to get a nine-figure contract during the offseason and the chance to put a Super Bowl ring on his finger and silence his critics once and for all.
