Birk showed he had already donated his brain when he went to Baltimore. It's all about the money. He'll be home when we're in Miami! Who the hell would live in Baltimore? I guess when you can afford private schools its O.K.

Hey I think Matt birk is a very intelligent guy and a pretty solid football player. Not an all pro like certain radio guys in local area believe he is but still solid.

Maybe Birk didn't want Favre's hands on his fanny all season.

Birk will get a great cheer when the Ravens play the Vikings.

Man, did Birk open himself up to sarcastic comments when he did this. On a serious note, good for him. On my usual sardonic, sarcastic, dumb-*ss note, I guess he MUST have a brain, because as he never tired of reminding us, he graduated from Harvard. Did I mention that he graduated from Harvard? He did, you know. Graduate from Harvard, I mean.
