Denver defensive lineman Justin Bannan has searched for a reason to get angry for Sunday's meeting between the Broncos and the Ravens, and his search has yielded nothing. "I wish I could say, 'They treated me like crap, and I hate everybody, and I can't wait to come back and get my revenge.' But it's really not like that," the former Raven said. "I've got nothing but good things to say about the city of Baltimore and the fans and the organization. It's hard to say anything bad when they treated you so well.

Defensive linemen are fond of saying they work in the trenches. The Ravens' Justin Bannan has actually dug them. As a teenager growing up in Fair Oaks, Calif., Bannan spent every summer excavating ditches, building houses and pouring concrete for his father's construction company. The labor was intensive and backbreaking, Bannan said. "I was the low man on the totem pole," he said. "I had an older brother [Jason]. Any bad job there was to get, I got it. There were a few jobs that I can remember that were brutal, especially out in Sacramento in that heat when you had 107-, 108-degree days."

No matter what happens with the collective bargaining agreement, Justin Bannan understands that his future with the Ravens is an uncertain one. The defensive tackle is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next month, and he said he is unsure of his plans. "This is a part of the business," Bannan said this week. "It sends you a lot of mixed feelings. Everything is uncertain, and sometimes it's tough to live that way. You don't know where you're going to be or if you're going to be here.

Colts C Jeff Saturday vs. Ravens DT Justin Bannan Saturday is a great technician and runs extremely well. He can make blocks deep into the second level. He has a good rapport with quarterback Peyton Manning, and he is a major key to the Colts' running game. Bannan has started every game in 2008 in place of Kelly Gregg. He plays with power and explosiveness, and is a load to move off the ball. If Bannan can control Saturday, the Ravens can bottle up Indianapolis' running game. Edge: Saturday: Colts WR Reggie Wayne vs. Ravens CB Frank Walker Wayne seems to have replaced Marvin Harrison as the Colts go-to receiver.

Everybody's a critic. Especially when it comes to movies. So it's no surprise that after polling Ravens players on their all-time favorite films, the answers are as diverse as the players themselves. Even nailing down the team's No. 1 cinephile isn't easy as tight ends Daniel Wilcox and Quinn Sypniewski, fullback Nick Luchey and defensive tackle Justin Bannan each staked a claim for the unofficial title.

At times during training camp at McDaniel College in Westminster, the Ravens' first defense has featured Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata at defensive tackle. And Justin Bannan and Dwan Edwards. And Brandon McKinney and Kelly Talavou. The ever-changing personnel is a hallmark of the Ravens' wildly unpredictable defense. But perhaps more pointedly, it's a testament to the kind of depth the unit enjoys when it comes to plugging the interior of the defensive line. Gregg and Ngata are the expected starters, but Bannan made 15 regular-season and three playoff starts alongside Ngata last year when Gregg and Edwards were lost for the season because of injuries.

The Ravens have 12 sacks in six games, which might be good for some teams, but not for the Ravens. Of the 12, just three have come from defensive linemen. It has gotten to the point where you don't have to tell them about the problem; they're talking about it themselves. "I don't know if you guys have noticed - I haven't gotten any sacks yet," Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said. "So I'm working on pass rushing." And so are end Trevor Pryce and tackles Justin Bannan and Marques Douglas.

Depth at the defensive tackle position might have some observers thinking that Brandon McKinney is on the outside looking in. But McKinney, who was signed by the Ravens on Oct. 8 after he was released by the San Diego Chargers, said he is eager to become a major contributor now that he has been a part of the defense for almost 10 months. The Ravens signed McKinney to a three-year deal in February. "That makes me want to come out and work harder and work on my technique and get the defense down pat," he said.

In the face of scientific research that suggests NFL linemen might be too big for their own welfare, Ravens defensive tackle Justin Bannan stands resolute and unflinching. He has read studies on heart health in the league, is aware of the alarming mortality rates for retired players and understands the risk of obesity at his position. But Bannan believes today's players have learned enough from the past to have a good chance of avoiding cardiac problems after retirement. "You're talking about a different generation," Bannan said.

The prospect of facing Cedric Benson and the Cincinnati Bengals without defensive tackle Haloti Ngata isn't exactly an ideal scenario for the Ravens considering the way Benson pushed Baltimore's defense around the last time the teams met, but it could happen this Sunday. Ngata, who sprained his ankle against the Denver Broncos, didn't practice Wednesday, and his status for the Ravens' game against Cincinnati seems likely to remain uncertain for the rest of this week, especially considering how guarded the team is about injuries.

The Ravens replaced one tough guy with another tough guy. Maybe even tougher. When the Ravens put nose tackle Kelly Gregg on injured reserve early in the season, there were doubts about anyone measuring up to his standards. After all, Gregg had established himself as one of the best run stoppers in the NFL. But as the Ravens head into Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Dolphins in Miami, the Ravens have the league's No. 3 run defense (81.4 yards a game), and a big, big reason is Justin Bannan, Gregg's replacement.

There are days the aches and pains Haloti Ngata has absorbed have him wishing he could stay in bed. But when he makes his way to the Ravens' training facility in Owings Mills, the defensive tackle seems to shed the soreness - and about 15 years. Before practice, Ngata, 24, can often be found with the quarterbacks, tossing the football with them. Last week, Ngata - who has been hampered by a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee - stood in as a running back for the scout team.

H ow pleased have you been with the season you have put together? Obviously, I'm very pleased. It's nice to be able to play a nice, full, long season and get the time on the field that I needed to get to put together a season like this. I knew I had to step in for Kelly [Gregg] and fill some huge shoes because Kelly is the best at that position at what he does. I feel like I've held it down. I think Haloti [Ngata] and I have done a pretty good job inside as far as being consistent and have a good, strong season together.
