Here's what other media outlets are saying about the Ravens' 44-16 victory on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: ** Despite the lopsided score, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley says the starting offense has some work to do before the regular season . As far as the first-team offense goes, it was a forgettable performance. Joe Flacco went 7-of-9 for 57 yards in one quarter of work. His worst throw was getting the ball late to Jacoby Jones on the sideline, where it was intercepted by former Ravens cornerback Danny Gorrer.

After months of waiting and wondering, we will finally get our first look at the revamped Ravens defense in a game tonight when the Ravens open the preseason against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who went 7-9 in 2012. Yes, I know it is just an exhibition and the play calls will be pretty vanilla. Plus, some starters may play just one series or a quarter (coach John Harbaugh wouldn't say when he was asked about it a couple of days ago). Still, the Buccaneers will serve as a nice first challenge for a defense that could have as many as six or seven new starters on the field tonight.

1. Generate more production from the ground game. The Ravens have struggled to find consistency in the running attack, producing the fifth-worst yards per carry (3.7) in the NFL. But Tampa Bay has allowed a 100-yard rusher in six of its past eight games. 2. Take advantage of the play action. If the Ravens find success on the ground, they should be able to go over the top of the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay has given up eight passes over 40 yards, which is tied for third-most in the league.

Phillips, who has done an outstanding job in his first season with the Texans, called Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik and withdrew from consideration. “I explained my reasons to Mark, and he understood,” Phillips said. “The timing just wasn't right.

Ravens nickel back Corey Ivy vs. Buccaneers slot receiver Ike Hilliard George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the top matchup against the Buccaneers: The players Ivy, a free-agent pickup from the St. Louis Rams, beat out third-round pick David Pittman for the team's nickel back job. Last season, he had a career-high 81 tackles along with three interceptions and two forced fumbles. Primarily a special teams player early in his career, Ivy played for three teams in his first three seasons, bouncing from New England to Cleveland to Tampa Bay. One of the reasons he joined the Ravens was because of his connection with defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, who coached Ivy at the University of Oklahoma.

Texans defensive players were unanimous in their excitement that Wade Phillips canceled his interview with Tampa Bay and withdrew from consideration for the Buccaneers' head-coaching job. Phillips, former Cowboys head coach, was supposed to interview Friday night in Houston with a contingent from the Buccaneers. He was a long shot to get the job, anyway, and by withdrawing as a candidate, he's guaranteed of returning for a second season. "Hey, we're selfish, and we're excited about him backing out of the interview," inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans said.

The crew of Urban Pirates has just a few simple expectations for the would-be Baltimore buccaneers it takes aboard for its adults-only, BYOG (bring your own grog) cruises: Participants are expected to make a lot of noise. They must defend the pirate ship with water cannons if it comes under "attack. " They should help finish off a bottle of rum, and they are encouraged to play pirate games. Disney's newest movie about Capt. Jack Sparrow might be rated PG-13. But the past few years have seen a proliferation of shipboard-themed events for the 21-and-older crowd.

Ravens run offense vs. Buccaneers run defense Ravens running back Jamal Lewis has struggled in every season opener that he has started. He has averaged 3.5 yards a carry in his past four season openers. Tampa Bay returns the core of a defense that ranked No. 6 against the run last season. Running between the tackles is difficult to do against the Buccaneers because of stout interior linemen Anthony McFarland and Chris Hovan. It's equally as tough to get to the outside against Tampa Bay's quick-pursuit linebackers, Shelton Quarles and Derrick Brooks.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired coach Jon Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen yesterday after the team collapsed after a 9-3 start and missed the playoffs for the fourth time in six years. Gruden, who helped lead the Buccaneers to a victory over the Oakland Raiders in the January 2003 Super Bowl, was Tampa Bay's coach for seven years. Allen was general manager for the past five seasons. The Buccaneers were tied for first place in the NFC South heading into December but finished with losses to the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons on the road and the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders at home, where they had been 6-0. One more win would have landed an NFC wild-card berth.

Now it's time to get back to real football. After a hiatus since losing to the Atlanta Falcons 17 days ago, the Ravens get back to a more competitive schedule, starting with the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday night. Games against the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the previous two weeks were just preludes to what the 2010 Ravens are really about. They are one of the top teams in the NFL but might not even be the best team in the AFC North. "We know that when the Ravens play the Steelers in December, it usually has a lot of meaning, and this game coming up definitely does so it'll be a statement game for us. We know what's in front of us," tight end Todd Heap said.
