It didn't take long Sunday for Dan Fouts and Ian Eagle to let us know we were watching a low-down-on-the-depth-chart broadcast team from the worst TV network doing NFL football. In the keys-to-the-game, pre-kickoff analysis, Fouts told viewers Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco didn't want to talk about “who's not here anymore” among his receivers. Instead, Fouts said, Flacco stressed how “excited” he was “about the continued progress of his new wide-out, Torrey Smith, his No. 1 wide-out.” You have to believe Fouts knows somewhere in his brain that Torrey Smith isn't really “new.” Don't you?

How bad did the Ravens look in their 19-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday? So, bad that CBS analyst Dan “I never publicly like to call a player or coach out” Fouts called them out at the start of the second half for the unimaginable gaffe of getting a delay of game penalty after taking a timeout. Honestly, I don't know which was worse Sunday - watching the Ravens lose the way they did to the Steelers or having to watch it on CBS, which delivered another hopelessly flawed telecast.

Few at the Franklin gymnasium knew the challenge that faced South Carroll's Andrew Gold yesterday when he went up against Eastern Tech's Chris Clark for the title in the Indians' invitational. "I've known him for years, and the one time we wrestled, he beat me," said Gold, a 103-pound sophomore. In a bout that was tied three times, Gold (24-1) exacted revenge with his third takedown of the match with 1:04 left, producing a 7-5 victory over Clark (20-3). Gold paced South Carroll (135 points)

CBS Sports hit a new low in its coverage of the Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers, and that's really saying something for this sorry outfit. The network literally missed the opening kickoff. In 30 years of writing about television and media I have never seen that happen. And I hope I never do again. And things went downhill  from  there. I kid you not. After some empty welcome to San Diego Qualcomm Stadium talk from play-by-play announcer Ian Eagle and analyst Dan Fouts, the CBS Sports camera was focused in close-up on Ravens coach John Harbaugh as the ball was kicked.  In the facial close-up, you can see Harbaugh's eyes tracking the flight the ball - the thing the cameras were supposed to be showing us. But viewers were never shown the approach or the kick.

CBS Sports will have Ian Eagle on play-by-play and Dan Fouts as analyst in Sunday's big Baltimore Ravens game against the Cincinnati Bengals. And Fouts sounds like he's thinking Cincinnati. Here are his quotes from the network. What do you think? Baltimore is undefeated at home, so obviously they'd like to win to get to play at home and get the bye.  But for motivation, getting to the playoffs, the Bengals have that.  And, playing at home is a bonus for them because Baltimore is just 3-4 on the road.  Cincinnati is a team that a lot of people haven't given enough credit for being as good as they really are. Fouts on keys to game: Baltimore has to find a way to run the ball against Cincinnati, and that is no easy chore.  On the road, if you're throwing a lot and having incompletions, that just jacks the crowd up.  Cincinnati's pass-rush is very good.  So in order to slow that down, Ray Rice is going to have to have a real good day.  Cincinnati has a chance with their wide receivers to do some damage here.  A.J. Green did not play in the first game against Baltimore.  Jerome Simpson got a lot of attention for his leap into the endzone last week and he had a huge game against these guys the first time.  But the guy to keep your eye on may be Jermaine Gresham more than anybody else.

The outside joke has become an inside joke. Dennis Miller's booth-mates on "Monday Night Football" are having a field day. Last week, fellow commentator Dan Fouts "stole" a "Peyton Place" reference from Miller, and announcer Al Michaels mentioned an annotated online guide to Miller's citations. There was even a football game - and a new batch of Millerisms: A "Flowers for Algernon" learning curve - High school students might remember this novel about a mentally retarded man whose intelligence is increased by experimental drugs.

One of the biggest sideshow attractions at Tuesday's Media Day circus was Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel, who is sporting a beard that makes Zach Galifianakis ' facial hair look like a little scruff. The beard has become so legendary, it actually got interviewed by FOX Sports' Alex Marvez. "It's really not that itchy," Keisel told Marvez on Tuesday. "I shampoo and condition. It's actually pretty soft. People are pretty surprised when they touch it. I've gotten used to it. " Keisel's beard inspired NFL Network to rank the top 10 beards in NFL history, and the homeless man's beard of Ravens safety Ed Reed was seventh on the list.
