After five journeyman years in the NFL, Anthony Wright has a firm grip on the moment. If he can quarterback a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the Ravens would take control of the AFC North and Wright would take control of the team's starting quarterback job. In filling in for injured starter Kyle Boller, Wright has helped the Ravens to two milestone victories, directing the Ravens' biggest comeback ever one week (a 44-41 overtime win...

The problem with low expectations is it's easy to lose all perspective. If I had told Ravens fans at the start of the season that their team would finish with a 9-7 record and be fighting for a playoff berth in the final week, they would have wanted to hug me. Now, if I'm prudent and cautious enough to suggest that same outcome, I'm the guy seen as a pessimistic hater. That's OK. I'd rather be wrong than be seen as a homer. And right now, I think the Ravens are most likely to go 3-4 over a brutal seven-game stretch and just miss the 10-win mark.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - This war has taught Anthony Wright two things. He hates being shot at, and he loves Iraqi people. Neither outcome is one he would necessarily have predicted before journeying deep into Iraq as a soldier with the Army's 101st Airborne Division. But it all makes perfect sense to him now that he passes his days in and around an empty elementary school in southern Baghdad, the farthest this tall 20-year-old with caterpillar eyebrows has gone from his old neighborhood in Essex.

Phoenix -- Days before the Super Bowl, Anthony Wright can only think what might have been. It was four years ago when he was the starting quarterback for the Ravens, who were upset by the Tennessee Titans in the wild-card round of the playoffs. "I felt we had a good chance back then to get here," said Wright, who is now backing up Eli Manning for the New York Giants. "One or two plays, it could have been different." After going 5-2 as a starter in 2003, Wright was re-signed by the Ravens as a backup but didn't throw a pass in the 2004 season because of shoulder surgery.

Quarterback Anthony Wright (2) takes the shotgun snap and looks for Clayton on the quick slant. Linebacker Brad Kassell (55) makes the perfect read and steps in front of Wright's throw at the 21-yard line.

Coach Brian Billick left open the possibility yesterday that Anthony Wright could remain the Ravens' starting quarterback even after Kyle Boller recovers from a toe injury. Boller, who is wearing a protective boot on his right foot, could return as early as the Ravens' Oct. 2 game against the New York Jets. When asked if the starting job would be given back to Boller, Billick declined to talk about the future of the quarterback position. "Anthony Wright is our starting quarterback, and he will be our starting quarterback until circumstances change," Billick said.

Sun columnist answers questions about the Ravens' loss to the Bengals Sid, Mahwah, N.J.: Mike, Is the season over for us? Or is Kyle Boller gonna come back and do some miracles? Mike Preston: Sid, God bless you. You are a diehard fan. To ask a question like that, you must wear the purple-colored sunglasses, bleed purple and drink the grape Kool Aid. But if you can't see the writing on the wall, I suggest you call your eye doctor immediately. In theory, the Ravens have to win eight straight just to be in contention.

Key Play 0-0 Quarter First, 8:54 remaining Situation Ravens' ball, third-and-goal at the Browns' 3-yard line Play A Browns turnover on their first offensive play gave the Ravens the ball at the Cleveland 20-yard line. One pass and three runs later, the Ravens came out with two tight ends -- Todd Heap (86) on the left and Darnell Dinkins (87) on the right. Quarterback Anthony Wright (2) dropped back to pass and faked to running back Chester Taylor (29), while Heap and Dinkins ran crossing routes at the goal line.

It was a different kind of 1-2 punch for Jamal Lewis and Chester Taylor. Instead of rotating, Lewis and Taylor teamed in the backfield, with Lewis serving as the fullback for three plays after Ovie Mughelli sprained his ankle in the second quarter of the Ravens' 16-3 win over the Cleveland Browns yesterday. In his first action as a fullback, Lewis helped Taylor run for 4 yards, a play that was changed at the line of scrimmage by quarterback Anthony Wright. "It wasn't really made for me to get the ball when he was in there," Taylor said.

Jim Fassel said the spiraling Ravens' offense has worked on the basics during the bye week, or as the first-year coordinator likes to say, "keep sawing wood." So, at what point do the Ravens consider directing that saw at the starting lineup? Coach Brian Billick said there would be no changes to an ineffective offensive line this week. He was more vague as to whether inconsistent receiver Clarence Moore would receive less playing time. But if the problems continue on offense, Fassel seems more inclined to shake up the depth chart.

Barring any setbacks in recovery, Kyle Boller will not need surgery on his injured toe, coach Brian Billick said yesterday. In what has become the only positive news during the Ravens' bleak 0-2 start -- depending on where you sit on the team's quarterback debate -- Boller could return as the starting quarterback by the end of October. There were increasing concerns that Boller would require season-ending surgery when he met with a specialist in North Carolina on Monday. "Right now, they [the doctors]
