“I really wanted to play another year with Kansas City and you always want to play as long as you can,” Montana said Saturday after an autograph signing at Turtle Creek Mall in Hattiesburg.
“But the last concussion or two, especially the final one … most of them don’t hurt. But the last one hurt, so it makes you start thinking about the rest of your life.”
After a season-ending 31-10 win in Kansas City on Jan. 2, Cable told reporters “We’re not losers anymore” – a statement that really got under Davis’ skin. Cable said it again at a news conference the next day.
Cable had replaced the fired Lane Kiffin early in the 2008 season – and Kiffin also filed a grievance against Davis.
Sure, it looked good against the Kansas City Chiefs a week earlier. But the Chiefs are a mediocre team at best. They looked like playoff pretenders against the Ravens. And the fact is that when the Ravens absolutely needed to move the ball Saturday, when the sell-out crowd at Heinz Field was rocking the place and everything was on the line, the offense choked big-time.
So a season that began with so much promise, with players and coaches saying ” Super Bowl or bust,” just went bust.
I can’t wait to hear what owner Steve Bisciotti says at his annual “State of the Ravens” news conference.
