The reasons why are pretty obvious. Don't even have to look that hard.
The Ravens were in freefall when Lewis announced. Then they went on an absolute tear.
Art dying this year. A legend in the league, even though he was a total douchebag when he left Cleveland the way he did.
With Eli not in the playoffs, the league couldn't have its Manning/Manning in New Orleans game they'd hoped for, so they went with the next-best thing. Retiring Ray Lewis, dead Art Modell, Harbowl. They can have Brady/Manning and Manning/Manning next year (and in New York!).
Not saying it WAS fixed, but there are plenty of reasons to fix it.
