The Ravens are looking really good and, well, so is Teddy. He's back on track and with Ray Lewis spotted at practice, this week he had no doubts about which treat -- which team -- was the right choice. Go Teddy!

It seems that everyone is taking the Ice Bucket Challenge to help support ALS research, including our own Baltimore Ravens. In O.J Brigance, however, the Ravens have a special connection with the ALS community - and for that reason the Ravens can and should make their own unique and tangible contribution to the cause ( "O.J. Brigance speaks out on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge," Aug. 14). As a special honor for O.J., a key special teams player on the Ravens' first championship team, and as a way for the city of Baltimore and for Ravens fans everywhere to both show their pride and help fight ALS, replica 2000 Super Bowl jerseys with Mr. Brigance's name and number could be made and sold through the Ravens with the proceeds going to the O.J.'s Brigance Brigade Foundation (www.brigancebrigade.org)

If you're a book-lover and football-lover (there really are a few of us out there), you've gotta love Stevie Baggs of the Baltimore Ravens. The Bethune-Cookman University grad is nicknamed "Shakespeare," because he's known for making plays. For the uninitiated, that means he does some eye-opening work on the field. A little bit of football humor, but not bad for a sport known more for head-banging than than for the bon mot. It's fitting that Baggs plays for the Ravens, which has its own rich literary heritage.

Rapper, producer and actor Dr. Dre knows who he likes in the Super Bowl: Ravens to take it all. He tells TMZ that he's with the team that has Ray Lewis on it. "It's a good looking Super Bowl, isn't it?" a TMZ reporter asks Dr. Dre. "Absolutely," Dr. Dre says. "I'm excited for Ray Lewis, man," he continues. "He's a good guy and I'm a fan of his. I'm wishing the best for him. " Not a bad endorsement from a California guy, who -- at least logistically speaking -- would seem inclined to go with San Francisco.

Baltimore Sun staff members weigh in on the Ravens' decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replace him with Jim Caldwell. Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens reporter: As much heat as Cameron has gotten over the past couple of years, today's news is still surprising. The Ravens don't usually make drastic moves like this especially at this stage of the season. But it's clear that the frustration by the team's key offensive players was mounting. Ray Rice was furious after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, everybody!  Welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  And welcome to the Super Bowl Champion -- world champion -- Baltimore Ravens.  (Applause.)  Everybody can have a seat.  That's why we set up chairs.  (Laughter.)        Now, I suspect that these guys are wondering, what kind of introduction is that?  No smoke machine.  (Laughter.)  No fire cannons.  Obama didn't even tear up chunks of turf and rub them on his suit.  (Laughter.)  That reminds me, by the way -- please don't do that on the South Lawn.  (Laughter.)

Much has been written about how the National Football League has handled the Ray Rice case. After the recent arrest of Luke Casey, we could no longer remain silent. The National Football League taught Luke Casey and his girlfriend an important lesson. Mr. Casey is the star college football player and Columbia native charged with assault last week after witnesses reported seeing him knock a 19-year-old woman to the ground and repeatedly hit her with a closed fist. The woman is just some woman.

Standing in front of his locker late Thursday night, running back Bernard Pierce smiled when reminded how the Ravens struggled mightily to run the football last season. Pierce was typically grouchy after games last year, a man of few words and even fewer explanations for why the Ravens rushed for the fewest yards in franchise history. Pierce was in a much different mood at M&T Bank Stadium after the Ravens' 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers to open the preseason. For at least this game, the Ravens' revamped running game was transformed into a dominant outfit as they rushed for 237 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries to average 4.9 yards per rush.

Rather than running constant articles about the Baltimore Ravens and their - um - misadventures ("Ray Rice apologizes to wife and all domestic violence victims in first comments since suspension," July 31), why not file a feel-good story on how many Orioles fans are in attendance at games as far away as California?

Three U.S. Senators sent letters to the Baltimore Ravens and the National Football League on Thursday criticizing what they called "plainly inadequate" punishment for star running back Ray Rice. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut, and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin - all Democrats - implored the league and the Ravens to revisit their sanctions against Rice, who was charged with felony aggravated assault after police said he knocked his then-fiancee unconscious at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino in February.

Among the crowd of some 200,000 people who attended the Baltimore Ravens' triumphant parade and celebration in Baltimore on Tuesday were more than a few parents who had to make a choice between letting their children attend and keeping a day of school. One of those was Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz - who attended the festivities at City Hall with his two sons, ages 9 and 11. “I got them back [to school] for the rest of the day,” said Kamenetz, whose boys attend Gilman.

To understand the wide chasm between the Ravens and the Cleveland Browns -- two teams at opposite ends of the NFL's hierarchy -- you need only to look at how the organizations conduct their business. Sure, talent evaluation, player development and fiscal responsibility are all factors in Baltimore's success. But so is stability, something the Browns have lacked ever since the NFL put a team back in Cleveland. The Browns restructured their chain of command once again on Tuesday, stunningly parting ways with CEO Joe Banner and general manager Mike Lombardi, whom owner Jimmy Haslam installed just 13 months ago. Ray Farmer was promoted to general manger and Alec Scheiner is the new team president.

Yesterday, in the wake of the second murder of a transgender woman in Baltimore in the last two months , Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts held a press conference to convey a commitment to solving the crime and improving police relations with the transgender community. Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock also started tweeting about 26-year-old Mia Henderson's death, saying she was his "brother," and the case -- which city police had clearly sought to shine a spotlight on -- became the subject of international news.

Joshua Cain felt miserable as his Engine 58 crew gathered in the kitchen of their Annapolis Road firehouse after a brutal blaze that ripped through several rowhouses and took hours to control. Only two months into the job as a Baltimore firefighter, he had found a dog that looked just like his childhood Belgian shepherd-poodle badly burned and not moving inside one of the ravaged homes. Cain and his colleagues sat around the kitchen table, telling stories of their own dogs. The camaraderie made him feel "like part of the team," Cain said.
