Former Utes Paul Kruger and Ma’ake Kemoeatu have played major roles this season while keying Baltimore’s Super Bowl run. Both are expected to start this Sunday against San Francisco.

Although Kruger was a standout at defensive end for the Utes, he’s made his mark playing outside linebacker in Baltimore’s 3-4 defense. Now in his fourth season Kruger is one of the Raven’s impact players along with Corey Graham, according Clifton Brown of the Sporting News.

“(Terrell) Suggs, Ray LewisEd Reed and Haloti Ngata get most of the headlines for the Ravens’ defense. But without Kruger and Graham, the Ravens don’t make it to Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots,” wrote Brown prior to Baltimore’s AFC championship win over New England.

Kruger contributed four tackles in that game, but it was against the Indianapolis Colts in the first round where he made perhaps his biggest impact. In that game he wreaked all sorts of havoc with four tackles, 2.5 sacks and one key forced fumble.

In Baltimore’s improbable 38-35 double overtime win over Denver he made a play that effectively ended the game.

“Perhaps his most vital play, however, came when he chased Peyton Manning out of the pocket in the closing stages of the Ravens’ AFC divisional round nail-biter against the Denver Broncos, forcing Manning to throw the interception that effectively ended the game,” wrote Martin Rogers of Yahoo Sports.

Kruger had 46 tackles in the regular season and led the Ravens with nine sacks.

Kemoeatu has been a mainstay on the interior of Baltimore’s defensive line after sitting out last season with injury and weight issues. Now in his tenth year the former Ute is playing his best football when it matters most.

The mammoth 6-foot-5, 345 lineman recorded his first sack of the year in Baltimore’s final regular season game against Cincinnati.

“Everything is tweaked up just right, everybody knows where they need to be and what they’re supposed to be doing,” Kemoeatu told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun following the game. “Of course, it took the whole season, but I feel like the defense has got everything down at the right time to make a run.”

Kemoeatu started 13 games for the Ravens in the regular season and all three postseason games. His best effort of the year may have come in the AFC Championship game win over New England where he had a season-high five tackles.

Caleb Moore, an innovative freestyle snowmobile rider who was hurt in a crash at the Winter X Games in Colorado, died Thursday morning. He was 25.

Moore was being treated at a hospital in Grand Junction since the Jan. 24 crash. Family spokeswoman Chelsea Lawson confirmed his death, the first in the 18 year history of the X Games.

“He lived his life to the fullest. He was an inspiration,” Lawson said.

A former all-terrain vehicle racer, Moore switched over to snowmobiles as a teenager and quickly rose to the top of the sport. He won four Winter X Games medals, including a bronze last season when his younger brother, Colten, captured gold.

Caleb Moore was attempting a backflip in the freestyle event in Aspen when the skis on his 450-pound snowmobile caught the lip of the landing area, sending him flying over the handlebars. Moore landed face first into the snow with his snowmobile rolling over him.

Moore stayed down for quite some time, before walking off with help and going to a hospital to treat a concussion. Moore developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to a hospital in Grand Junction for surgery. The family later said that Moore, of Krum, Texas, also had a complication involving his brain.

Colten Moore was injured in a separate crash that same night. He suffered a separated pelvis in the spill.

The family said in a statement they were grateful for all the prayers and support they have received from people around the world.

X Games officials expressed their condolences and said Moore, a four-time X Games medalist, would be remembered “for his natural passion for life and his deep love for his family and friends.”

B.C. Vaught, Caleb Moore’s agent for almost a decade, said he first saw Moore when he was racing an ATV in Minnesota and signed him up to star in some action sports movies.

Later, Moore wanted to make the switch from ATVs to snowmobiles and Vaught helped him. A natural talent, it only took Moore two weeks to master a difficult backflip.

Moore’s brother also got involved in snowmobiling, the close-knit duo pushing each other to become better.

Moore honed his skills in Krum, a town about 5,000 people 50 miles northwest of Dallas that rarely sees snow. Instead, he worked on tricks by launching his sled into a foam pit. After a brief training run on snow ramps in Michigan, he was ready for his sport’s biggest stage – the 2010 Winter X Games.

In that contest, Moore captured a bronze in freestyle and finished sixth in best trick. Two years later, his biography on ESPN said, “Caleb Moore has gone from `beginner’s luck’ to `serious threat.'”

That was hardly a surprise to Vaught, who said, “Whatever he wanted to do, he did it.”

Vaught said Moore didn’t believe his sport was too extreme, but rather “it was a lifestyle.” He was good at it – along with ATV racing – as he accumulated a garage full of trophies.

Fellow snowmobile rider Levi LaVallee recently described Moore as a “fierce competitor.”

“A very creative mind,” LaVallee said. “I’ve watched him try some crazy, crazy tricks and some of them were successful, some of them not so much. But he was first guy to get back on a sled and go try it again. It shows a lot of heart.”

X Games officials said in a statement that they would conduct a thorough review of freestyle snowmobiling events and adopt any appropriate changes.

“For 18 years, we have worked closely on safety issues with athletes, course designers and other experts. Still, when the world’s best compete at the highest level in any sport, risks remain,” they said, noting that Moore was hurt performing a move he had done several times before.

Green just caught his third TD on a 49-yard bomb from Andrew Luck. He now has 6 receptions for 95 yards (15.8) on just 7 targets.

During the annual NFL Pro Bowl in Honolulu tonight, Bengals receiver A.J. Green set a franchise record with his third touchdown in two Pro Bowls. The previous record for most touchdowns all-time in the Pro Bowl was held by Chad Johnson (2) and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

His first came on a 6-yard pass from Broncos QB and future hall-of-famer Peyton Manning during the first-quarter.

His second came in the fourth-quarter on a 4-yard jump-ball that Colts QB Andrew Luck put just enough air under for Green to go up and snatch it over Bears cornerback Tim Jennings.

While the Pro Bowl has become nothing more than a glorified game of flag-football, it’s still a nice honor for Green to capture in just his second year in the NFL, and there will undoubtedly be many more to come.

Hi-res-130256617_crop_exact

January 10, 2013

You can see it in his gingerly gate as he moves from his locker to the shower area, in the way he leans against a wall to take pressure off his right knee.

Haloti Ngata’s remarkable body hurts.

This is easy enough to forget when you watch the Ravens on Sundays. The television announcers are more apt to talk about Terrell Suggs’ Achilles or Ray Lewis’ triceps. The camera, always following the ball, rarely settles on the trench warfare between Ngata and two or three offensive linemen nearly as big and powerful as he.

His teammates know. Always in awe of his combined size, power and agility, they now speak in appreciative tones of the way Ngata has played through a sprained knee and a busted shoulder, never saying much about either. That’s the way he learned from his Tongan forefathers — go to work every day, and if you’re in pain, still go.

But this season — his seventh overall and the second straight in which he’s played through debilitating pain — the Ravens defensive tackle has thought more about his football mortality than ever before. Maybe it’s the joy he gets from chasing his 3-year-old and five-month-old sons. Maybe it’s the suicide of Junior Seau, a hero to Ngata and many other players of Polynesian descent.

“It makes you think, especially now that I have kids, is this job worth the head traumas you’re probably going to end up having when you’re older?” he says in the hushed voice that belies his enormous body. “I just think about being able to raise my kids, see them through college, see them have kids. It makes me think more about how much more I want to play.”

It’s a weird spot for a guy who’s about to turn 29 and just made his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl, a guy who signed a five-year, $60-million contract before last season. But Ngata knows he’s no longer the kid from the famous rugby video that pops up during Ravens telecasts, racing past men half his size at a speed that should be impossible for a human grizzly bear.

“I know I will probably never feel as good as I did when I was younger,” he says matter-of-factly.

He is wiser — better at resting during the week, better at managing his body according to the guidance of the physical therapist, stretching coach and masseuse he has hired. He’s learned not to wear out his mind as well. Instead of popping in game film the minute he arrives home from practice, he’s more likely to play with his boys, Solomone and Haloti Maximus. He likes to help his wife, Christina, put them to bed.

The Ravens, too, have made a point of resting Ngata more often, including for a full mid-season game against the Oakland Raiders, when he could have played if necessary.

For now, those efforts have mitigated his physical deterioration.

Opponents certainly aren’t ready to write him off as a threat. “He’s an excellent player – great size, great athletic ability and always a guy that you know where he is on the field,” says Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who will try to avoid being flattened by Ngata in Saturday’s AFC divisional playoff game.

It’s hard to be 345 pounds and not fat. But you don’t see a sloppy gut when Ngata pulls off his pads. He’s just big all over, from his thick, meaty paws to his cinder-block noggin.

At the Ravens training facility, he sometimes wears a nit cap pulled low over his ears. Combined with his full beard and mass, it creates a Bunyanesque picture. You could imagine Ngata, in an earlier America, emerging from the deep woods with a huge cut of timber slung across his shoulders.

Teammates sound like they’re describing a mythic creature when they recount his feats.

“Did you see him chase down RGIII out of bounds?” says defensive end Paul Kruger, referring to a play from December against Washington Redskins phenom Robert Griffin III. “I mean, that’s pretty insane, a 340-pound guy moving that fast. No matter how banged up he is, he can still move around pretty good.”

Asked where Ngata ranks among the physical specimens he has observed in football, Kruger says: “You watch the guy, he can really do anything. He can pick up a basketball, he can throw a football as far as anybody in here. He’s just athletic as they come, and at that size, it’s a pretty unreal combination.”

Of course, if Paul Bunyan played seven years on the interior line in the NFL, his joints would probably hurt as well.

It must be quite a thing to possess gifts unfathomable even to fellow pros and yet to grasp, as a man still in your twenties, how fleeting those gifts are. Of course, Ngata talks about that as stoically as he does about everything else. He inherited the demeanor from his father — Solomone Ngata died at age 45 when the truck he drove for work slid off an icy road near Salt Lake City — and the other men in his family.

Rah deal?

A Baltimore Ravens cheerleader who told the team she was quitting after the season says she has been unfairly left off the squad for the Super Bowl, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The alleged snub of Courtney Lenz sparked an online petition and Facebook drive to reinstate her. Thousands had posted their support as of Wednesday afternoon after Lenz reached out for help.

The team had promised that all cheerleaders with at least three years’ experience would qualify for the Super Bowl, the petition said. Lenz, 23, of Baltimore, had been with the team for five years. The petition noted that Lenz was the only veteran barred from performing.

The Ravens defended Lenz’s omission, telling ABC they trimmed the 60-member squad to the NFL-allowed 32 for the big game based on seniority, performance and personal conduct. Lenz said she believed the team was retaliating for her leaving the squad.

On the Facebook page titled “Help Us Get Courtney To Superbowl,” Lenz wrote she was told by the team that she had a “rough year.” She also said she had been benched for a few games because she had gained weight — “no more than two pounds” she added.

The Baltimore Ravens will face off against the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 3. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 EST. About 150,000 Super Bowl fans are expected in the city, according to the Associated Press.

1:51 PM               January 30, 2013

Wide receiver Randy Moss told reporters at Super Bowl media day Tuesday that he believes he’s the all-time best receiver in NFL history.

In a San Francisco 49ers jersey, nonetheless, the team Jerry Rice won three Super Bowls with.

But even if we’re debating Moss vs. Rice, NFL.com Fantasy analyst Dave Dameshek is taking it a step further: He says the Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson makes the case for No. 2 all-time, ahead of Moss.

Of course, Johnson may not even be halfway through his NFL career, having six seasons, 7,836 yards and 54 touchdowns under his belt at the age of 27.

But he’s certainly in the prime of his career, coming off a season in which he broke Jerry Rice’s record with 1,961 receiving yards.

“Yes, this depends on how the next half-dozen years go, but if we assume he can stay on the field, Johnson will take a run at most of Rice’s records,” Dameshek argues. “He’s got a big-armed young QB in Matt Stafford throwing him the ball and there are just enough other pieces in the Detroit Lions’ offense to keep the other team from putting a nickel’s-worth of DBs on him.”

On his all-time list, Dameshek has Moss at No. 3, Michael Irvin at No. 4 and Larry Fitzgerald (still playing for the Arizona Cardinals) at No. 5. He mentions that his “primary analytic tools” were his eyes, so his list is based more on the eyeball test than statistics.

Rice has 22,895 career receiving yards and 197 receiving touchdowns, so Megatron may need at least another decade, if not more, to catch up to Rice.

January 28, 2013

Earl Thomas and Russell Okung were out of position.

Not in a bad way, as in unable to make a play because of it. Instead, each found themselves playing a new position in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, but still found ways to make plays in the NFC’s Seahawks Six-powered 62-35 victory over the AFC at Aloha Stadium.

Thomas, the Seahawks’ All-Pro free safety, intercepted a pass on the second play of the second half that setup the first of three touchdown passes by Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and pushed the NFC’s lead to 38-14. But he did while playing as the nickel back, sitting on Matt Schaub’s pass to Denver Broncos’ wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the flat and forcing the Houston Texans’ quarterback to throw to the wrong Thomas.

Okung, who was voted to the Pro Bowl as the NFC’s starting left tackle, also spent time on the right side – a transition that is not as easy as he made it look.

But things like that happen in the Pro Bowl, where preparation time is even more limited than roster size – with three tackles and three cornerbacks for each team.

Or as Okung put it on the field after the game, “Somebody had to do it, and I was willing.”

Then there was Thomas, and no one could doubt that he came to play in a game where the players’ effort was questioned in last year’s Pro Bowl. Thomas wanted to make a statement for the NFC, and especially the Seahawks Six.

He did that with his big interception, as well as on a few other tempo-setting plays.

“I took charge of the DBs back there, and they followed,” said Thomas, who also got some snaps at cornerback.

Thomas then used the opportunity to send a good-natured message to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll while discussing his interception – when he was in man-to-man coverage, but gambled because his quickness and closing speed by letting the Broncos’ Thomas run to the flat.

“Hopefully, coach Carroll saw it and will let me play,” he said through a sly smile that was as good as a wink. “I wanted to put something on film, so coach Carroll can look at it and say, ‘OK, look what we’ve got. He can cover. He can play the slot.’ Maybe I’ll get some action out there.”

Not that Thomas wasn’t already in the middle of just about everything good the Seahawks’ No. 4-ranked defense did during the team’s 11-5 regular season and then the franchise’s first road playoff victory since 1983 in the wild-card round against the Washington Redskins.

But that’s Thomas. Never satisfied. Always looking for ways to do more. Definitely playing with a chip on his shoulder pad despite everything he’s already done in his first three seasons with the team.

“I think it’s all about confidence,” the 5-foot-10 Thomas said of an intangible were he never comes up short. “I don’t care who’s at quarterback. Peyton Manning kind of got me fired up as soon as I got here; he called me out in front of everybody in meetings.

“And look what happened.”

Okung also was making things happen in a game where the NFC ran the ball 27 times – with teammate Marshawn Lynch leading all backs with 21 yards and scoring one of the game’s two rushing TDs – while putting it up 44 times. More than half those passes were thrown by the New York Giants’ Eli Manning (16 of 23), with the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees (8 of 11) and Wilson (8 of 10) splitting the rest.

Okung was on the field for eight of the NFC’s 10 scoring drives – six at left tackle, two on the right side. With only three tackles on the roster, someone had to do double duty.

“It was tough, man,” Okung said after his first Pro Bowl experience. “We did it in practice and the new guys had to kind of rotate. It’s something we weren’t used to doing. But we came out on top.”

Even with Thomas and Okung playing out of position.
