When the Modell family moved its NFL franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore in 1996, it knew a major endorsement from a certain local legend would ensure the new team's acceptance. The Modells got it from quarterback John Unitas without hesitance. "His acceptance was probably in the top three individuals or groups that we would have preferred to have accept us and convey that to the public," Ravens president David Modell said. "He was extremely supportive of this franchise from the beginning and of my family.

When former Ravens quarterback Steve McNair came to Baltimore in 2006, he was near the end of his career but at the beginning of something special for the Ravens. Not only did McNair lead the Ravens to the playoffs that season, but he eventually became the model for a franchise that had been hurt by poor quarterback decisions. As news of McNair's death in Nashville, Tenn., Saturday traveled through Baltimore, the minds of many Ravens fans had to drift back to 2006 when we all hitched a ride on McNair.

For Chris Redman, the first week of Ravens training camp seemed like surviving an all-out blitz. Coaches barked at his poor decisions. Crowds drooled over deep throws by his backup. And a third-string linebacker intercepted one of his passes before 9,000 fans. But the first-year starting quarterback - he has spent the past two seasons as the Ravens' third-stringer since being selected 75th overall in the 2000 NFL draft - took the hits and remained standing. "I was making sure that he wasn't overwhelmed," offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh said.

Schmuck strikes out in defense of Rose Regarding Peter Schmuck's commentary of Jan. 8 ["Though he's far from a saint, Rose deserves a seat on high"], I am very disappointed to see another sports reporter disregard the importance of integrity in sport. Without such integrity, any sport is little better than professional wrestling. It is true that none of the players elected to Cooperstown was perfect. However, the case of Pete Rose is far different from any of the Hall of Famers. The transgressions committed by some inductees reflect primarily on their private lives, not on the game of baseball.

NEAR DONALDSON CREEK, Ky. - Even here, Chris Redman can't escape his new life. Redman has built a cabin by the lake, in an aw-shucks southern Kentucky hideaway that isn't named on any maps. There should be no one or nothing to remind him he has been named the Ravens' new starting quarterback. His home is situated on 2 1/2 acres at the end of a windy, gravel road. Redman's neighbors are a couple of coyotes and "Bikini Bob," who rides around on his lawn mower wearing nothing but a leopard-print Speedo.

Chris Redman reflected on what happened with his good friend Tim Couch, a fellow Kentucky native and NFL quarterback, then voiced how good he has it with the Ravens. Couch, taken with the first overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns, played as a rookie and took his fair share of hits and criticism while losing 12 of 14 games he started. Redman, as a rookie a year later, was inactive for 14 games, attempted three passes all season and collected a Super Bowl ring. The way Redman looks at it, he got the better deal.

Travis Taylor showed no fear. With all eyes fixed upon him, it was crunch time for Taylor when his number was surprisingly called by offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh. But instead of having to make a tough, third-down slant over the middle, Taylor had to run a go route to the front of the team meeting room. Cavanaugh picked the wide receiver to deliver the red-zone game plan before a recent preseason game, instructing every player of his assignment. Graduation day has certainly arrived for the players responsible for the Ravens' passing game.

An hour after one of the final practices of training camp, with his teammates long gone and a crowd of nearly 100 people waiting specifically for him, Ravens quarterback Jeff Blake politely made his way over and gave the fans what they wanted. Blake signed autographs, took pictures and hobnobbed. He looked like a man rallying fan support for a team expected to struggle through a much-publicized rebuilding year. Instead, the opposite was occurring, as the fans, one in particular, were rallying for Blake.

Thumbs up: Veteran Matt Stover and rookie Dan McGuire combined to kick nine consecutive field goals in a stirring morning practice duel. Stover went 4-for-4, hitting from 34, 40, 43 and 45 yards. McGuire, a former soccer player at Boston College, went 5-for-5, connecting from 42, 36, 40, 44 and 46 yards. Thumbs down: The jaw injury sustained by Marcus Nash left the Ravens vulnerable once again at wide receiver going into tomorrow's preseason opener. Six players, two of them rookies, will have to divide time against the Philadelphia Eagles.

WELL, AT LEAST the percentages are in Ravens coach Brian Billick's favor to get this one right. He was wrong about Scott Mitchell. He was wrong about Stoney Case. And Tony Banks. And Elvis Grbac. And Jeff Blake. And now he's about to give us rookie quarterback Kyle Boller over veteran Chris Redman. Ready or not, here he comes. That's the word that has been leaking out of the Ravens' training complex for about a week now. And since Boller has taken most of the snaps with the first team the past three days in preparation for his second straight preseason start tonight against the New York Giants, it has become apparent that Billick has installed Boller as his starter for the opener in Pittsburgh on Sept.

In tonight's "Battle of the Beltways," the Ravens' quarterback competition likely will take a different turn. Rookie quarterback Kyle Boller is expected to be in the driver's seat as the Ravens (1-1) take a short trip down the interstate for a preseason game against the Washington Redskins (0-2) at FedEx Field in Landover. Although coach Brian Billick has declined to announce his quarterback rotation, it's a near certainty that the 19th overall pick in the draft will make his first NFL start.

Rating the QBs How the Ravens' quarterbacks stacked up in yesterday's team drills: 1. Kyle Boller On a day dominated by defense, the rookie had the most productive drive, completing three of five passes for 24 yards with the second-team offense. In a red-zone session that ended practice, Boller scrambled 2 yards around the left corner and dived with arms outstretched to break the goal line. His poorest throw was forcing one into the middle of the field, where it was picked off by linebacker Bart Scott in the end zone.

As players reported to the Ravens' training camp yesterday, talks continued with their first-round picks and the silent treatment began in regards to their quarterback competition. Taking a hard-line stance on both potential distractions, coach Brian Billick said Ravens officials won't budge in negotiations with the camp's only no-shows - linebacker Terrell Suggs and quarterback Kyle Boller - and won't comment on the battle for the starting quarterback job. In addressing the team's fifth and sixth first-round holdouts in seven years, Billick based the team's stance on economics as well as history.

RAVENS COACH Brian Billick may have been premature in recently comparing rookie quarterback Kyle Boller to Warren Moon, but after the team completed its second passing camp yesterday, you could understand his excitement. But not just about Boller. All three of the Ravens' top quarterback prospects, Boller, Chris Redman and Anthony Wright, have shown zip on their passes. For the first time since the Ravens started playing in Baltimore, the team has three quarterbacks who can bring the heat.

After a six-hour wait, the Ravens couldn't make their third-round choice quick enough. The Ravens selected quarterback Chris Redman with the 75th overall pick, ending a long layover after taking the fifth and 10th players in yesterday's draft. Redman also carries a bit of nostalgia since he played at Louisville, the same school that produced Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas nearly five decades ago. He completed 61 percent of his passes and threw for 12,541 yards and 84 touchdowns in his career, earning the Unitas Golden Arm award this season.

"I'm telling you, as the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, there is never, will never be, a quarterback controversy. If I change quarterbacks every week, there won't be a controversy. It will be a calculated, analytical approach on my part ... but there won't be a controversy." - Brian Billick, August 1999 So, OK, no quarterback controversy. Never. Scratch quarterback controversy. Don't mention it this season. In the brief life of the Baltimore Ravens, their quarterback roster has included Vinny Testaverde, Jim Harbaugh, Eric Zeier, Scott Mitchell, Stoney Case, Tony Banks, Randall Cunningham, Trent Dilfer, Elvis Grbac, Chris Redman and Jeff Blake.
