Ravens free safety Darian Stewart delivered such a punishing tackle two years ago while playing for the St. Louis Rams that the impact knocked Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams off his feet and sent him crashing to the ground. The big hit left Williams woozy for several minutes, ultimately knocking him out of the game. Although somewhat undersized, strong safety Matt Elam emerged as a feared player in the Southeastern Conference with a series of devastating hits. The Ravens drafted him in the first round last year because of his aggressive nature.

A week after he was critical of the Ravens' coverage breakdowns, defensive coordinator Dean Pees defended the play of starting safeties Matt Elam and Darian Stewart, saying he thought the team's secondary played well in the victory over the Carolina Panthers. “I think they're doing real well,” said Pees when asked specifically about the two safeties. “I'll admit that I don't think we played very well on the back end in the Cleveland game, and that was a lot of guys. It's never one guy. There are a lot of things that happen there and it wasn't just Matt and it wasn't just Stew.

Terrence Brooks said Wednesday that transitioning from his previous role with the national champion Florida State Seminoles to a spot with the Ravens has proven difficult, though team activities this spring helped the rookie safety get familiar with his new home. “It was a little hard at first,” Brooks said. “Coming into a new system is definitely going to be challenging. But for the most part, with more studying and just being a student of the game, I feel like I've got a good grasp on how this defense is and the scheme.

The Ravens persevered through key injuries, an early division-heavy schedule, the challenge of grasping a new offense and seemingly daily off-the-field distractions to finish the first quarter of the regular season with a 3-1 record. But as players and coaches exited the locker room late Sunday afternoon after a 38-10 blowout of the Carolina Panthers, the solid start to the season was tempered by an understanding of the challenges ahead. Coach John Harbaugh and his players won't be talking this week about anything beyond Sunday's game in Indianapolis against the formidable Colts, but it's not a stretch to suggest that the next five weeks could define the Ravens' regular-season.

It probably wouldn't have made a difference even if Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had not delivered a strike to the left corner of the end zone. No one from the Ravens' secondary was in position to challenge the pass Sunday as Newton hit rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a 28-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Free safety Darian Stewart reacted far too late after cornerback Jimmy Smith had the initial coverage on Benjamin and released him to Stewart. For the second consecutive game, the Ravens had a botched coverage because of a mix-up in coverage responsibilities.

The pending arrival of new Ravens safety Darian Stewart comes with a scouting report. Stewart has built a reputation as a tough guy with a lot of pop and as a tackler who excels in run support. However, Stewart isn't known for making a ton of plays in pass coverage despite his above-average speed. "Good safety, good player," said retired former St. Louis Rams defensive tackle D'Marco Farr, an analyst for the organization's broadcasting team. "Good, smart, instinctive guy, underrated hitter.

I would want a decent-sized break in the middle if I played baseball every day from March to October too, but since I don't, I can fairly say that this week is unbearable and I'm glad sports are back tonight. You can tell how little has happened in the past day by all the analysis found in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's sports headlines. - The Orioles open the second half with three games in Oakland, the team that was responsible for Manny Machado's reputation taking a hit but ultimately might have also sparked his turnaround this year.

Setting the scene: The Ravens began their last full practice at the Under Armour Performance Center for nearly a week around 1 p.m., and practiced under overcast skies until 4 p.m. It was the team's second straight day in full pads. Daily battle: Practice wasn't as fiery Sunday as it was the day before, but there was plenty of friendly competition between cornerback Chykie Brown and wide receiver Steve Smith, who came to blows Saturday. Smith beat Brown several times for big plays, but Brown covered him well, and Brown stripped him during situational work.

Brooks was the second consecutive Florida State player that the Ravens acquired, following the second-round selection of defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. It also marked the third straight pick the Ravens used to upgrade the middle of their defense.
