If the Pittsburgh Steelers were stunned at what they saw from Musa Smith and Cory Ross, they weren't the only ones. At least one of the Ravens running backs' teammates had a similar reaction. "They came out and did a hell of a job," wide receiver Devard Darling said in an appreciative tone. "They ran the ball well. Ross was a big surprise. They just came out and executed." Smith and Ross keyed a huge running game for the Ravens, who finished a disappointing season with a 27-21 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday.

QUARTERBACK DERBY Kyle Boller and Troy Smith seemed to split most of the snaps under center during full-team drills yesterday morning. Boller remained true to form, playing it safe with short passes, while Smith took a few more chances. He was the only quarterback to throw for a touchdown during red-zone drills, connecting with wide receiver Yamon Figurs on a 15-yard pass. Rookie Joe Flacco displayed a strong arm, but he got off to a questionable start when his first pass was intercepted by linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo.

HIGHLIGHTS Second-year wide receiver Mark Clayton got cornerback Chris McAlister to bite on a fake, and then left McAlister way behind for a 40-yard touchdown catch. Rookie receiver Demetrius Williams has been impressive and very physical. He pushes off well. First-round draft pick Haloti Ngata showed his athleticism in the morning session when he worked down the line of scrimmage, and then rocked running back Musa Smith. Quarterback Steve McNair doesn't have dazzling arm strength, but always seems to put the ball where it needs to be. He has it there when the receiver comes out of the break.

At the age of 31, Chris McAlister is viewed by his younger teammates as a wise veteran brimming with sage advice. Just don't tell that to the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback. "I still feel like one of the young guys," he said after yesterday's morning practice at McDaniel College in Westminster. "They look up to me in a way that at times catches me off guard, and they ask questions and they ask for advice and I give all the help that I can give. To that aspect, it kind of makes me appreciate being able to play as long as I have, that I can help someone else and try to give them the knowledge that I have."

Jonathan Ogden made his first appearance at Ravens training camp at McDaniel College yesterday. Naturally, football was not the first thing on the offensive tackle's mind. Ogden's father, Shirrel, died last Wednesday, and his funeral is set for Friday. The team has canceled Friday's afternoon practice sessions to allow players to attend the funeral. (The "young players" - as noted in the team's news release - will participate in a one-hour walkthrough that afternoon.) Jonathan Ogden, a nine-time Pro Bowl player, has been excused from the first four days of training camp to help make arrangements for the funeral.

Watch the football. Guide the ball into the hands. Wait for the blocks to set up. Find a hole. Get upfield and - if possible - score a touchdown. That's the checklist Ravens return specialist Yamon Figurs must run through in his mind on every kickoff and punt he corrals. It's a daunting inventory that becomes more urgent when Figurs adds the most important task: hanging on to the football. Seven games into his rookie season, Figurs has three fumbles, losing one in a 27-13 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sept.

Adam Terry, the Ravens' second-round draft pick in 2005, has always been a big offensive lineman, but the 23-year-old said he feels stronger this summer after losing 15 pounds from his listed playing weight of 330 pounds as a rookie. "I feel like I'm back where I was coming out of college," the 6-foot-8, 315-pound Terry said. "I gained a little bit of weight to fit the whole persona of `bigger is better,' but to me, it wasn't. I'm not a Jonathan [Ogden, the nine-time Pro Bowl tackle who is 6-9 and 345 pounds]

Dawan Landry makes sure to spend some quality time in hot- and cold-water tubs after practice. Haloti Ngata can lean on the counsel of 10-year veteran Trevor Pryce. And Sam Koch keeps the punting to a minimum during the days leading up to a game. Those are just a few of the tactics Ravens rookies have used this fall to avoid the dreaded "rookie wall" in a season that has already exceeded in duration any they have played on the collegiate level. And thus far, the first-year players have withstood the physical and mental grind of the season admirably.
