Titans safety Michael Griffin lost his appeal of a one-game suspension as a repeat offender of the league's rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players.
Tampa Bay's Dashon Goldson is proud of his reputation as a hard-hitting safety, but concedes it bothers him that there's a growing perception that he's a dirty player.
Football will never be safe. Science proved that.
Ray Lewis wasn't there. Neither was Ed Reed, or at least a half dozen other players who hoisted the Super Bowl trophy last February.
There's a positive byproduct of the disgraces at a certain federal agency that has seized the imaginations of many in recent days.
Since winning the Super Bowl, the Ravens have undergone a dramatic transformation. Linebacker Ray Lewis and center Matt Birk retired, wide receiver Anquan Boldin was traded, and free safety Ed Reed, inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, sack specialist Paul Kruger and strong safety Bernard Pollard signed elsewhere or were released.

Soon after arriving in New Orleans for the Super Bowl late Monday afternoon, the Baltimore Ravens found out exactly why this football game is different from all the rest.
The music blared in the Baltimore Ravens locker room Saturday as the players threw their football gear into black duffel bags lying in front of their cubicles.
"Players are adapting to the rules and techniques," he added. "The culture doesn't change overnight."
"I am Catholic, I am active in the pro-life movement, and I just felt like I couldn't deal with that," he said.
