But with the arrival of rookie sensation Robert Griffin III and the team's first signs of postseason life since 2007, has the calculus changed? For one Washington Post writer, the answer is still simple: Hail to the Ravens.

Loaded apple-chicken bratwurst big winner on Sunday.
Hello everyone and welcome to the Super Bowl XLV version of Andre Taylor’s Tasty Tidbits! The big game has arrived and like in previous years, my Philadelphia Eagles won’t be playing for an NFL championship.

Even though the Green Bay Packers put my Eagles out of the playoffs in the first round, I still pick them to win it all this year. To show my support for the NFC Champions, I’m firing up my stovetop skillet and whipping up some apple-chicken bratwurst and loading up the bun with some fried onions, smoked apple wood bacon, some shredded cheddar cheese, mustard and ketchup. This is a real simple meal to make. …
