I'm going to act like writing about something like this is below me, even though you and I both know that it isn't, but according to a report by TMZ, former Ravens cornerback and "former NFL bad ass" Chris McAlister has claimed that he is "BROKE AS A JOKE and living with his parents. " Those are TMZ's words, not mine. According to the report , McAlister, 34, is currently in a court battle with his ex-wife, Marlene, over child support money. TMZ reported that in official court documents, the former Pro Bowl cornerback claimed, "I have been unemployed since 2009.

A s the Ravens left the field Thursday night, they had more than just a 26-6 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers . They also had reasons to be encouraged about their defense. The Ravens didn't allow a touchdown. They forced three turnovers and scored off two. They contained Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for most of the game, and they basically pounded the Steelers into submission. At the end, Pittsburgh was worn down and the Ravens had imposed their will.

Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan is crossing his fingers. With a little luck, he might get starting cornerbacks Samari Rolle and Chris McAlister on the field for the first time Saturday night against the St. Louis Rams. Both have missed big chunks of training camp because of injuries, and this would be an ideal opportunity for them to get some playing time. Most teams prefer to play their starters three quarters in the third preseason game and then play them very little in the fourth and final game before the season opener.

The Ravens are running out of excuses and cornerback Jimmy Smith is running out of time. We just keep waiting and waiting and waiting ... And so far, there has been very little production, at least for what you'd expect out of a first-round pick. When the Ravens selected Smith with the No. 27 overall pick out of Colorado in 2011, there was speculation that he could be another shutdown cornerback like Chris McAlister because he had size, speed and range. Since then, he has only proven that he can be a nickel back in the NFL. With Lardarius Webb out of the lineup Thursday night because of knee injury, Smith got a chance to start for a second straight preseason game, and again he didn't show much.

As the Ravens' defense focuses in on shutouts, Chris McAlister is zeroing in on another personal shutdown. The charismatic, cocky cornerback has become the defense's mouthpiece over the past week, talking trash and backing it up. Now, he's pointed out he hasn't given up a reception in two games and isn't shy about expanding on it. McAlister is licking his chops at the prospects of going against Arizona Cardinals third-string quarterback Chris Greisen and...

An Arizona newspaper once described cornerback Chris McAlister as "quiet and hardly outspoken" when McAlister played at the University of Arizona. Judging by his comments below, McAlister ranks with linebackers Ray Lewis and Bart Scott as one of the most candid personalities in the Ravens' locker room. McAlister, a three-time Pro Bowl pick, sat down with The Sun's Edward Lee to discuss, among other topics, his status among NFL cornerbacks, the influence of his parents in his life and his dream date.

Thumbs up: Cornerback Ray Walls made an interception during one-on-one drills. ... Receiver-turned-cornerback Javin Hunter ran with the second team and looked comfortable. Thumbs down: Quarterback Kyle Boller was intercepted by Chad Williams on a woefully underthrown ball to Todd Heap. ... Return specialist Derek Abney fumbled the ball while running toward the end zone, though no one touched him. ... Kordell Stewart had the first fumbled snap of the camp. Quotable: "If they call me to step up, I'm going to be ready, and they know I'm going to be ready."

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is known for his coolness and he seldom gushes about a draft pick. He got a little excited when the team made UCLA offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden the franchise's first draft pick in 1996, but there wasn't much jubilation when the team selected Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs or Chris McAlister. And then came Thursday night. As members of the Ravens' front-office staff walked to the podium at The Castle to talk about first-round pick Matt Elam, the safety out of Florida, Newsome appeared ecstatic, at least for Newsome.

Is it a coincidence that Lardarius Webb, who wears No. 21, is beginning to show signs of succeeding the Ravens' previous shutdown corner in Chris McAlister, who also wore No. 21 before leaving the team in 2008? Time will tell if Webb can meet the standards that McAlister set when he patrolled the defensive backfield for the Ravens, but Webb didn't shy away from the perhaps premature comparison. “That's the goal,” Webb said. “My ultimate goal is to be the best cornerback on this team, then the AFC and then the NFL. That's my goal.

One aspect missing from the buildup of Sunday's AFC North clash between the Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals is the lack of barbs usually crafted by wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. Ochocinco, a former Bengal who is now employed by the New England Patriots, once sent deodorant to the Ravens secondary to help the defensive players from sweating while trying to shadow him. He used to keep a pre-game list in his locker of the defensive players he planned to target, and he added former cornerbacks Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle and current inside linebacker Ray Lewis in the past.

Monday night's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars will mark the 16th time in franchise history the Ravens have appeared on "Monday Night Football. " Baltimore is 7-8 all-time in the weekly football showcase, and 3-2 under John Harbaugh. In those games, there have been plenty of memorable moments, both good and bad. Here's a quick look at six of the best individual "Monday Night Football" performances in Ravens history: January 7, 2002: Terry Allen rushed for 133 of the team's season-high 212 rushing yards in a 19-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings . By winning the first “Monday Night Football” game in Baltimore since the Colts left town for Indianapolis, the Ravens clinched the AFC's final playoff spot.

It's another tantalizing Ravens-Jets matchup, another chance to dissect the Ravens' decision to go with John Harbaugh over Rex Ryan as head coach in 2008. Please, let's stop this incessant second guess of Steve Bisciotti. It's silly, it's tiresome and it's pointless. Bisciotti made the right call for his organization. Harbaugh was exactly what the Ravens needed at the time: an energetic, forceful, demanding coach who swept the country club atmosphere out of the team's locker room.

The rollercoaster first round of the NFL draft again lived up to its prime-time billing Thursday night, with twists (four quarterbacks going in the first 12 picks), turns (former top prospects Da’Quan Bowers and Nick Fairley free-falling) and some queasiness in Baltimore when the clock ran out on the Ravens around 10:45 p.m. But at the end of the thrill ride, the Ravens got their guy. Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith, a top-15 talent in the eyes of many draft analysts, was the player they wanted all along, and after the early run on quarterbacks, he was there at pick No. 26. But after a trade with the Bears, picking three spots later, fell through -- “My bad,” said Bears GM Jerry Angelo -- the Ravens didn’t get their pick in on time and the Chiefs raced to the podium to take Pittsburgh receiver Jonathan Baldwin.

When a team believes it is only a player or two away from the Super Bowl, it will take a gamble with a high-priced free agent, or a star rookie with a troubled background. The Ravens took a gamble Thursday night. With the No. 27 pick in the first round of the NFL draft, the Ravens selected Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith. There is little doubt that Smith was one of the most talented players in the draft, but he has more baggage than an airline carrier at BWI. His name has been linked with published reports of failed drug tests and other revelations about alcohol-related arrests and a third-degree assault in a restaurant.
