Starks learns his out-and-up lesson

November 23, 1998|By Mike Preston

CINCINNATI -- Ravens rookie cornerback Duane Starks didn't give up the big play yesterday, and he finished as the team's leading tackler with eight and knocked down three passes, most of those long attempts to Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Carl Pickens.

Starks has been burned several times by the out-and-up move, but not yesterday even though the Bengals tried it.

"I went up to Carl and said, 'Man, you didn't think I was going to fall for that again?' He said he knew it wasn't going to work, but they might as well try it."
