Belichick: None 'better than Ed Reed'

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick reiterated his glowing admiration of Ravens safety Ed Reed on Wednesday, four days before the Patriots battle Reed and the Ravens in the AFC championship game Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Belichick was asked about the savvy play of Reed and perennial Pro Bowl linebacker Ray Lewis, and what makes it so difficult to prepare for them. 

"I don't know how much more savvy they could be," Belichick said. "Two of the greatest players ever to play the game, on the same team, on the same defense for so many year. I don't even know where to start."

Belichick referred to the play that Reed made on the final snap of the game against the Texans on Sunday in Baltimore, when T.J. Yates threw a Hail Mary pass in the end zone. Reed came over from his responsiblities on Andre Johnson and knocked down the pass on the final play to preserve Baltimore's 20-13 win. Reed badly injured his left ankle and foot making the...

Ravens' Birk on M&M: Flacco handles critics

Ravens center Matt Birk, a former Harvard standout, joined the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about Sunday's AFC championship game.

Birk, in his third season in Baltimore after 11 years with the Vikings, said he doesn't put much stock into the fact that the Ravens beat the Patriots in their last playoff meeting, in Foxboro two years ago.

"We don't take a whole lot from that game specifically," he said. "I've been up to New England two other times since I've been with the Ravens and the Patriots have beaten us. No matter who we're playing, we feel like we can go on the road. We've won big games on the road, and we can do it. It always come down to execution. Execution, and then your playmakers making plays. And this Sunday's going to be no different."

Joe Flacco is often criticized for being a weak link on the Ravens, but Birk said he's not concerned about his quarterback's psychological state.

Commissioner asked to resolve Theo comp

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Red Sox and Cubs have asked the commissioner's office of Major League Baseball to resolve the matter of the compensation that the Sox will receive as a result of Theo Epstein's departure to become Cubs president of baseball operations in late October.

The Red Sox have insisted throughout the process that they are entitled to "significant" compensation, while the Cubs have suggested that while the Sox will receive something in exchange for the departure of a general manager under contract, precedent suggests that it will not be a major prospect. Last week, Epstein hinted that the two sides might require the involvement of a third party -- presumably, the commissioner's office -- to resolve the matter.

"I think you have to put it in context. In the...

Report: Tebow tore cartilage vs. Patriots

During the Patriots' 45-10 victory over the Broncos on Saturday night, Tim Tebow tore cartilage on his first rib, bruised his lung and had fluid buildup in the plural space of his chest, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter credits an NFL source as saying Tebow's injuries occurred when the quarterback was hit in the pocket after throwing a pass early in the third quarter.

Tebow had an MRI on his chest Monday and has been undergoing rehab this week. He is expected to begin his offseason training program on schedule.
