About Kirk Minihane

Kirk Minihane thinks "Slap Shot" is -- without argument -- the best sports movie ever made and is also convinced the 1985-86 Celtics would have finished with a record of 78-4 if they had cared about the regular season. He has been a columnist at WEEI.com since 2009 and is now part of The Dennis & Callahan Show.

"What next level is there? That's the thing that frustrates me. People don't consider me an ace or don't consider me a front-line starter. Well, when there are two other pitchers in all of baseball who (won at least 15 games four straight seasons), what am I? That's my argument to it. What extra level is there to it? Am I supposed to win 25 games every year? It's not possible."

The blame for Ravens 28, Patriots 13, begins and ends with Tom Brady, the worst quarterback on the field Sunday (no, I'm not counting Ryan Mallet) and, in fact, the worst quarterback in either game on Sunday. And it wasn't even close.

"I’m happy here. My family is happy here. We’re excited about what’s ahead of us here in the playoffs, and to talk about any other opportunities at this point is, to me, irrelevant, because I’m totally focused on this season and what this season holds."

I have no idea which team will represent the National Football Conference (though the Seahawks sure look like a really, really tough out) but I know who they'll be facing. The Patriots are going back to the Super Bowl.
