Edward "Eddie" Dopkin, the popular restaurateur who founded and owned Miss Shirley's and co-owned the Classic Catering People, died Saturday at age 61. Dopkin's dining successes and relationships within the community earned praise Saturday from Baltimoreans who patronized his establishments and who, like the Baltimore Ravens organization, relied on his family's Owings Mills-based catering company. "My heart aches at hearing the news of Eddie Dopkin's passing," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a statement to The Baltimore Sun. "He has been a constant fixture in the restaurant and catering community of Baltimore for many years and his commitment to the City was unwavering.

The Fox telecast of the Baltimore Ravens' loss Sunday was far from perfect, but what a vast improvement over any coverage provided this season by CBS Sports. I am sure some fans are going to insist Fox analyst Daryl Johnston doesn't like the Ravens, or somehow “has it in” for them. But what a relief it was to hear someone call out Ravens coach John Harbaugh for his bad decisions Sunday. Johnston, who seemed about 10,000 times more focused in his thinking and crisp in his analysis than Dan Fouts or Dan Dierdorf has even been for CBS, laid the wood to Harbaugh's first-half miscues both at the time they were made and at the end of the game.

The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens face an uphill struggle to repeat last year's success if recent history is any indication. The last team to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles was the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004, and it's been eight years since a reigning champion won a playoff game the next season. The Green Bay Packers, who play at Baltimore on Sunday, know a little something about the challenges that follow a championship. The Packers won the Super Bowl three years ago and the next season lost in their playoff-opening divisional game against the New York Giants.

While the Baltimore Ravens and the Buffalo Bills prepare for their Sunday matchup, the two franchises don't seem to have much in common. Buffalo has gone through six general managers since 2000 and hasn't made the playoffs during that time. Meanwhile, Baltimore has been the model of consistency, with nine playoff appearances and two Super Bowl championships. The two cities do share one unflattering trait, though. Baltimore and Buffalo rank as the only metropolitan areas with a National Football League franchise that don't also have a Fortune 500 company within their boundaries, according to a release from Maryland Business for Responsive Government.

As readers of constitutional history know, one of the more attractive ideas the founders of this nation had was that the states would serve as "laboratories" of innovation that, in turn, other states could replicate. Andrea K. Walker's recent article about the new health care law set to go into effect next month spotlighted Maryland's exemplary attempts to undo misinformation that could leave millions of its citizens without health insurance, especially the poor ( "Confusion, misinformation hinder health outreach," Sept.21)

Gary Kubiak is not psychic. He isn't Kubiak the Magnificent, a soothsayer who in borderline divine and mystical ways can provide answers to never-before-seen questions. Were that the case, he would never call a bad play, and the Texans would have won a Super Bowl. Still, when Kubiak's squad found itself in a defensive battle with the Baltimore Ravens midway through the second quarter Sunday, one might have been inclined to give him credit for an accurate prognostication.

This is the kind of thing that all too often makes it so aggravating to watch the Baltimore Ravens when CBS is doing the telecast. It was late in the third quarter Sunday and a ferocious pass rush by the Ravens resulted in a sack of Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. As the linemen were unpiling with 29 seconds left in the quarter, a graphic flashed on the bottom of the screen that read, “Ravens: 4 sacks for 28 yards.” Two seconds later, play-by-play announcer Marv Albert told viewers, “A total of three sacks now for the Ravens.” Come on, Marv.
