Last month, Ravens safety Ed Reed made an interesting remark about Jets coach Rex Ryan, saying that he and other unnamed players had hoped Ryan would get the Ravens' head coaching gig in 2008. Recently, in an unfiltered interview with Pro Football Focus, Jets inside linebacker Bart Scott, who followed Ryan to New York in 2009, tried to explain where Reed was coming from when he made those comments about Ryan to ESPN. “I’m sure you guys are into the news and heard what Ed Reed said a couple of weeks ago about how disappointed he was and about how he wanted Rex to get the head job in Baltimore,” Scott said.

I have to admit I was not overjoyed at the thought of spending the Ravens' season opener with the fourth-string CBS broadcasting team of Spero Dedes and Solomon Wilcots. But I only wish now that the Ravens had done as well Sunday as Wilcots, Dedes and CBS Sports did. While the Ravens lost 23-16 to the Cincinnati Bengals thanks to too many mistakes to even keep track of, CBS Sports had a solid opener from its revamped pre-game show with Bart Scott and Tony Gonzalez to the game coverage from M&T Bank Stadium.

Whenever Bart Scott's name surfaces, Terrell Suggs almost always speaks affectionately about his tutelage under Scott. So it shouldn't be a surprise that the Ravens outside linebacker paid homage to Scott, his former teammate who now plays for the New York Jets by wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with Scott's catchphrase “Can't Wait!” “We all know what it means,” Suggs said, opening his weekly briefing with the media on Wednesday. “I'm personally sending a message to my brother and former mentor, that I also 'can't wait.'” The purple t-shirt featured the words in big white letters with a gold chain wrapped around them.

When the regular season opens next month, former Ravens linebacker Bart Scott will debut on CBS's NFL Today pregame show as a commentator and analyst. Can't wait. Scott will be provocative, funny, entertaining and knowledgeable, but there also will be times when what he says might appear irrational or as if he's "on medication. " Can't wait. Scott, affectionately known as "The Mad Backer" in Baltimore, will always give you an honest, sometimes emotional opinion, none better than his "can't wait" rant on ESPN in 2011 after his New York Jets upset the New England Patriots.

Bart Scott is playing checkers against 13-year-old Ashlee Black. The Ravens' star is bouncing his red pieces across the board, like pebbles skipping over a pond, and the pile of Ashlee's black discs next to Scott keeps growing. "No mercy!" he says with a laugh. That part probably isn't surprising. It doesn't matter whether Scott's on the playing field chasing some unfortunate soul carrying a football, or if he's in his living room playing on his 21-month-old son's miniature basketball set, swatting Bartholomew's shots all over the house, this is how he competes.

As the Ravens prepare for Sunday's AFC North showdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the latest chapter of what many consider the NFL's best rivalry, The Sun caught up this week with several participants from the series to get some of their memories from past meetings. Not long after he was selected in the first round by the Ravens in 1997, linebacker Peter Boulware starting hearing about a burgeoning rivalry with the Steelers and how much Ravens' fans disliked that team from Pittsburgh.

Every morning, Monday through Friday, blogger Matt Vensel will hook you up with reading material -- mostly on the Ravens but with some other Baltimore sports stuff, too -- to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday. That way he'll have an excuse to do the same to start his workday, too. RUNNING IT BACK Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has come a long way -- and packed on a lot of pounds -- since he was a skinny kid in California . … Linebacker Ray Lewis was picked as one of the NFL's most overrated players in a recent poll by Sports Illustrated . … Rookie defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson feels blessed for getting the opportunity to play last weekend against the Houston Texans.

As the names kept flying off the board and the 2012 draft grew later and later, James Carmon thought back to a phone call that he had gotten earlier in the day. He was stressed and struggling to remain patient, but the words of Ravens offensive line coach Andy Moeller kept reverberating in his head. The Ravens were interested , Moeller told him. At that moment, that's all that mattered. “If I didn't get picked, I already knew that's where I wanted to be,” said Carmon, a 6-foot-6, 330 pound offensive tackle who went to high school at Baltimore's City College before playing college football at Mississippi State.

The Ravens have lost three starters in free agency, but it's nothing to have major concerns about. Now, if they lose inside linebacker Jameel McClain, it might be time to get a little nervous. The departure of left guard Ben Grubbs to New Orleans was a major loss. He was the Ravens' best offensive lineman and about to enter his peak years in the NFL. But the best teams in the NFL always lose quality players because other teams raid them through free agency, so traditional favorites like the Steelers, Ravens and Colts will lose big-name players occasionally.

As the Ravens work on their coverage units this week, they might want to heed some advice from former special teams ace Bennie Thompson . Throughout his 11-year career (1989 to 1999), Thompson was one of the NFL's best. He even had his own special fan club in Baltimore from 1996 to 1999. He later was a special teams assistant under former Ravens head coach Brian Billick . Thompson still lives in Baltimore, and watches Ravens games, including that 84-yard punt returned for a touchdown by Cleveland's Josh Cribbs Saturday.

He grew up in South Florida, so naturally, Antwan Barnes had a lot more familiarity with reptiles. Copperheads, cottonmouths and water mocs. Iguanas, 'gators and croc's. When he got to Baltimore as the Ravens' fourth-round draft choice of 2007, though, Barnes kept hearing about a different sort of varmint. Then the Ravens' defensive coordinator, Rex Ryan since has become known for some of the peculiar stuff he comes up with, but one of his sayings in Baltimore became a sort of mammal motto.

The circumstances were slightly different. The 2007 Miami Dolphins were 0-13, not 0-12 like the Indianapolis Colts team that will be at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The Ravens were just 4-9 at the time and had dropped seven consecutive games. Today, they are 9-3, and if they win out, they'll win the AFC North and likely earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. But as they prepare for their second December matchup with a winless team in a span of five seasons, at least one Raven couldn't help but remember the embarrassing 22-16 overtime loss to the Dolphins late in the '07 season.

At approximately 1 p.m. on Sunday, Ray Lewis might not shimmy his way out of the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium. There is a chance a toe injury could sideline Lewis, meaning someone else will have to captain the Ravens' defense, sing the national anthem, conduct the marching band, sell cotton candy and foam fingers, vacuum the place, and turn off the lights when everyone leaves. That might be a slight exaggeration of the linebacker's responsibilities on game day, but Lewis has been the scowling, war-paint-wearing face of everything Baltimore football for the past 16 years.
