Blakely: Celtics should take a serious look at West

Delonte West has played in Boston before. Could he be a fit with the Celtics now that Rajon Rondo is out for the season with a torn ACL?

"That's a guy the Celtics need to seriously look to bring back," said Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely.

And no. He wasn't kidding. West knows the system, and team management has dealt with his at times unpredictable behavior in the past. Why not give him a shot?

"We understands what he can do to help this team, when you start to think about some of the issues this team is going to have moving fwd without Rondo, you want somebody in there who, above everything else, you know he's tough."

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP: Ryan, Falcons rout Packers, 44-21

ATLANTA - Matt Ryan and Julio Jones teamed up for a dominant playoff performance, and the Atlanta Falcons ignored all those ghosts from the last half-century.

Next up: Super Bowl 51.

Ryan threw for 392 yards and four touchdowns in another MVP-worthy showing, while Jones shook off a toe injury to haul in nine catches for 180 yards and two scores, leading the Falcons to a 44-21 blowout of the storied Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship Sunday.

Manziel attends AFC Championship Game in Brady jersey

You’ll never guess who the seventh-best quarterback* at Gillette Stadium was Sunday. 

Via video posted on his Snapchat, 2014 Browns first-rounder Johnny Manziel, currently out of the league, attended the AFC Championship wearing a Tom Brady jersey. 

Manziel was released by the Browns last March after two seasons and just eight starts. Had he played this season, he would have been suspended for the first four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. 

*He might have been eighth-best. Julian Edelman played quarterback in college. People forget that.
