Judging by his past three games, Ravens wide receiver Floyd Turner could be in for the most productive second half of any season in his eight-year NFL career.Turner already is certain of this much. Nothing could be as frustrating or strange as the luck that followed him after he signed a one-year deal with the Ravens last summer, a week before training camp.Between his July 10 signing and his insertion into the lineup against Denver last month -- when Turner took the job from the since-released Calvin Williams -- Turner's life took enough turns to fit into a soap opera.

The Ravens' Ray Ethridge got the word just minutes before kickoff last night at Memorial Stadium.Part of the news was expected. Wide receiver Michael Jackson, who had sat out practice for most of the week with a slight knee sprain, would not start against the Green Bay Packers. The other news came as a bit of a surprise.Ethridge would be the starter in Jackson's place.Then, Ethridge went out and played like a starter. He caught five passes for 68 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown from backup quarterback Eric Zeier with 1: 06 left that gave the Ravens a 15-14 lead they failed to hold.

HOUSTON -- He blamed his receivers for dropping the ball, credited the Oilers' defense for causing some of his mistakes, and said he is still adjusting to a new offensive system. But in the end, Ravens quarterback Vinny Testaverde pointed the finger at himself for contributing heavily to the team's 29-13 demise at the Astrodome.Testaverde completed 25 of 40 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns, but his afternoon was defined by costly mistakes. As in three interceptions, including two in the first quarter that helped Houston take a 14-0 lead, blows from which the Ravens would not recover.

Andre Rison is gone, taking away the team's only bona fide breakaway threat, but consistency is the buzzword for the Ravens' receivers."We don't have a spectacular one like Jerry Rice, but what we've got is good, maybe very good," said Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda. "We've got receivers who are real football players."We've got outstanding ability and good experience in the receiver corps, a bunch of guys who have been in the NFL."The Ravens waived Rison on July 17 because of salary cap reasons and are hoping Michael Jackson takes his place as the team's clutch performer.

SOME IN THE Towson State football family are mad as hell and are asking tough questions about the possibility the school will drop the sport:How did this crisis develop almost overnight? When it was too late to do anything about it? How can the state give the University of Maryland $9 million for its stadium last week while a mere $257,000, two-year deficit jeopardizes Towson's program? How can James Madison, a state school in Virginia, manage its $2 million football budget but Towson not its modest $600,000 one?
