Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff is whining.  The Patriots displayed the wrong down and distance on the scoreboard during the final seconds of their 23-20 win in the AFC Championship Game.  Big deal.  Boo hoo.

Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff is complaining.  Cundiff has stated that the New England Patriots had the wrong down and distance posted on the scoreboard when he missed his game-tying 32-yard field goal attempt.  Oh, boo freakin hoo. 

He's not the only one crying though.  Ravens kicking consultant Randy Brown stated the following on WIP radio in Philadelphia; "The scoreboard was one down behind, the entire last three plays, from what we understand.  I don't think you can rule anything out in New England, can you?"
This is brutal.  Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said it best; "Any suggestion the wrong down info was a deliberate effort to affect the outcome of the game is nonsense.  We knew what the down and distance were on our last series.  The scoreboard was not a factor for us."  Amen, John.  Thank you for having some common sense.  Shut up and make the kick next time, Billy Cundiff.
