The new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys should be Brian Billick. If Dallas owner Jerry Jones fires current coach Wade Phillips at the end of the season as expected, then he should go after Billick. It's the perfect marriage. Now, introducing the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys … Right about now, you're choking on whatever you're eating or drinking. I know what you're thinking. How can I, Baltimore's biggest Billick basher, endorse him for the Cowboys' job? That's an easy one. To borrow a Billick saying, if I may, his hiring "fits within their parameters.

Sam Ball has a Super Bowl ring on his finger from Baltimore's 1970 NFL championship and a plaque on his wall naming him the 1990 Kentucky Soybean Association's Man of the Year. Life has been good to the All-American tackle-turned-farmer, who has reaped the rewards of two jobs well done. "For a country boy to have played for the Colts, alongside seven (future) Hall of Famers, was every kid's dream," said Ball, 70. "Plus, I was their number one draft choice. What an honor. My gosh, that's right up there with cold beer and air. " Baltimore's first-round pick in the 1966 NFL draft, Ball helped anchor the offensive line for four years, during which the Colts (43-9-4)

Middle linebacker Rolando McClain has decided that he wants to play football again but it won't be with the Ravens. After watching McClain retire twice in a year's span without playing a game for the team, the Ravens traded the rights to the mercurial linebacker, plus a 2015 seventh-round pick, to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2015 sixth-rounder. The Cowboys, who were looking for linebacker help after standout Sean Lee suffered a season-ending knee injury in an offseason workout, activated McClain from the reserve-retired list, and placed Lee on injured reserve.

Just a few months removed from being one of the Ravens' top pass catchers, second-year receiver Marlon Brown says he feels good about his role in the offense coming out of the preseason. “I feel like it's going pretty well,” Brown said. “When they called my number, I made a play. That's pretty much the mindset I have for this offense. I want to go in and contribute, whether it's blocking or catching the ball.” Brown's 2013 season was one of the bright spots for the Ravens' offense.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Before they left the visiting locker room at AT&T Stadium late Saturday night, the Ravens defense had reached a consensus in their evaluation of what had transpired over the previous three hours. The defenders believed that they had done some good things, but they also recognized that their play was nowhere near good enough. From missed tackles to blown assignments to costly penalties, the Ravens defense exited the 37-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys with plenty to work on and yet another key injury to their secondary.

Each week, we bring you a Q&A with a Ravens player, coach or team executive to help you learn a little more about the team. Today's guest is center/left guard Andre Gurode. You have made the switch from center to left guard while Ben Grubbs recovers from strained ligaments in his toe. How would you describe the process of making that transition? It's pretty difficult. Playing offense is a challenge in and of itself, but it's difficult from the stance that your dominant hand as a right guard is your right hand, and your dominant hand as a left guard is your left hand.

Weeks after falling awkwardly against the Dallas Cowboys and coughing up blood, Ravens starting cornerback Jimmy Smith proclaimed that he's made a full recovery. Smith suffered a chest contusion against the Cowboys and also had lung issues, but has been practicing since last week and says he's on track to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Smith said he won't need any extra padding to protect his chest. "I'm absolutely fine," said Smith, who's not listed on the first injury report released Wednesday.

Now that the preseason is finally over, the next order of business for the Ravens is finalizing their 53-man roster, which will have to be done by 4 p.m. Saturday. The Ravens are currently at 75 players, so they'll need to make 22 moves over the next 36 hours or so. Two of the moves have already been made for them, as running back Ray Rice (two games) and safety Will Hill (six games) will start the season on the suspended list. That will save - at least temporarily - two players' jobs.

NEW ORLEANS --  Attempting to convince the Ravens to keep three quarterbacks on the roster, rookie Keith Wenning saved his best performance of the preseason for the final game. Wenning completed 8 of 13 passes for 117 yards for a 90.9 quarterback rating Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints during a 22-13 victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. "It was fun to be out there," Wenning said. "I wasn't nervous. I was just trying to make a play. I am pleased. I feel like I made some plays.

Chykie Brown has heard the chatter both inside and outside the Ravens' facility. He knows what people are saying about the Ravens' banged-up secondary and how it could lead to the demise of the team. He also understands that he and whoever is left from the Ravens' cornerback group has a big opportunity Saturday night to ease some of the angst. "If people put us on that pedestal, we have to step up and answer the challenge," said Brown, the Ravens' fourth-year player. "I'm always up for a challenge.

The Ravens were fifth in the league in the best-fans ranking, were the highest-ranked AFC North fans and the third-best AFC fans - all respectable showings for Ravens Nation.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has mostly stuck to his script from previous preseasons, which means Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins will be quarterback Joe Flacco's final dress rehearsal for the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco hasn't played in a preseason finale since his rookie year in 2008 and it's hard to imagine that would change this year, not with the Ravens opening the regular season with three divisional games in a 15-day span.

John Harbaugh confirmed Monday that cornerback Lardarius Webb won't play this preseason as he recovers from a lower back injury, though the Ravens coach does expect to have cornerback Jimmy Smith back on the field soon, perhaps for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins. Smith, who left Saturday's preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys early in the first quarter with a chest injury, had a magnetic resonance imaging test taken. Harbaugh said it revealed some bruising and a “little bleeding from the lungs.” “They said it's not a serious thing,” Harbaugh said.

After nearly five weeks of training camp and two preseason games, it's still hard to predict if the Ravens will improve on last year's 8-8 record. On paper, they should because of certain additions they've made during the offseason. Those improvements are clearly noticeable on offense, but the defense appears to have taken a step or two backward. As for special teams, that's always a toss up even though the Ravens have traditionally played well in that area. It's only the preseason, of course, but the recurring question right now is will the Ravens win a lot of games, 42-27, or lose a lot of games, 42-27?
