We learned last January that Ravens running back Ray Rice doesn't like it when you lob a certain F-word at him. After fumbling twice in the team's wild-card win over the Indianapolis Colts, Rice defiantly said that he wasn't a fumbler and that it wouldn't happen again. It did three games later, in the second half of the Super Bowl, but the Ravens defense bailed Rice out after the turnover by holding the San Francisco 49ers to a field goal. The lost fumble was forgotten after the Ravens held off the 49ers to win the Super Bowl, but the turnovers in the playoffs are still fresh on the mind of one NFL Network analyst who knows a thing or two about fumbling.

Ravens running back Ray Rice jutted out his jaw, staring straight ahead as if he was about to stiff-arm a linebacker. Although Rice spoke calmly when reacting to retired quarterback Donovan McNabb's critical comments of his performance in the playoffs, the Pro Bowl runner firmly left no doubt that the criticism provides extra motivation. "I always respected him, and one thing I don't do is retaliate back," said Rice, whose three fumbles in the playoffs last season sparked McNabb's criticism.

This doesn't compute. The Philadelphia Eagles might have been able to ship Donovan McNabb to Oakland or Buffalo, moving him out of the NFC and keeping the five-time Pro Bowl quarterback at a safe distance. Instead, the Eagles on Sunday traded McNabb within the division, sending him to the Washington Redskins for a second-round pick this year and a third- or fourth-round selection next year. In doing so, the Eagles handed over one of the best players in club history to a bitter rival, and to new Coach Mike Shanahan, who already has one of the league's up-and-coming defenses.

The trade rumor that the Ravens could wind up with Donovan McNabb as their quarterback in 2008 just doesn't add up. Here's why: It's just so out of character on the Ravens' side, and it doesn't fit with the circumstances in which the Philadelphia Eagles find themselves. The Sun's Ravens reporter, Jamison Hensley, made the point in yesterday's newspaper that the Ravens are not in the habit of giving up high draft picks in trades. In fact, general manager Ozzie Newsome has never given up anything higher than a third-round choice for a player (Steve McNair cost a fourth-round pick in the deal with the Tennessee Titans)

Donovan McNabb is the quarterback who came to dinner. Selected with the second pick in last year's draft and awarded a $54 million contract by the Philadelphia Eagles, McNabb spent more than two months after his rookie season enjoying the hospitality of wide receiver Charles Johnson and his wife in Phoenix. McNabb stayed in a spare bedroom in the Johnson home, but it wasn't just a social visit. Johnson suggested that McNabb spend part of the off-season working out with him so they could get on the same page this year.

At first glance, today's game looks like one the Ravens have to - and should - win. And I think they will. However, this isn't a slam-dunk. Philly could win, especially if Donovan McNabb can pick apart the Ravens' secondary. One thing I have learned over the years while following the NFL is that the better team doesn't always win. Oftentimes, it's the most desperate one. And the Eagles are about as desperate as any club right now. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/cornersportsbar)

Outside looking in Dieter Kurtenbach Sun Sentinel Donovan McNabb looked to be a surefire Hall of Famer in his Eagles heyday, but as his career unceremoniously has wound down, so have his chances. Using McNabb's stats as the barometer becomes a Rorschach test — is he of the caliber of Steve McNair, Mark Brunell, Boomer Esiason, Randall Cunningham and Steve Grogan, or is he with Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach and Joe Montana? The numbers say he's among both.

Kolb deserves a chance David Teel Newport News You don't trade your Pro Bowl quarterback unless you're sold on his replacement. And you don't bail on that replacement 30 minutes into the season, no matter how inept he was, no matter how electric his backup. Kevin Kolb's first-half struggles Sunday probably had Eagles fans pining for Donovan McNabb, shipped to the Redskins during the offseason. And when a concussion sidelined Kolb, those fans reveled as Vick's skittish arm and unparalleled feet nearly rallied Philadelphia past the Packers.

If Marc Bulger leaves Baltimore as a free agent this offseason to become a starter elsewhere, the Ravens will likely be in the market for another able veteran to back up fourth-year quarterback Joe Flacco. Might that veteran signal-caller be Donovan McNabb, who is on the outs in Washington? Sure, it would take a few things to fall into place around the NFL -- and then Flacco and McNabb checking their egos at the locker room door -- but the possibility shouldn’t be ruled out. The market for McNabb is reportedly drying up . The Titans and the Vikings, two teams who were desperate for quarterback help, selected Jake Locker and Christian Ponder, respectively, in the first round of last month’s NFL draft.

In their most important game of the season, the Eagles lost by five. And by 5. That's the jersey number of Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, who wore that same number for 11 years in Philadelphia before the Eagles traded him in April. Along the way in their 17-12 loss to the Redskins, the Eagles lost quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered an undisclosed rib injury on a dazzling run up the middle at the end of the first quarter when he was sandwiched just shy of the goal line.

McNabb, who spent the previous 11 seasons quarterbacking the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance, played against his former squad for the first time in his career. Traded in the offseason, McNabb returned to his old grounds to a rousing ovation.

Wide receiver Antonio Bryant was released Sunday by the Cincinnati Bengals, who signed him to a four-year, $28 million deal in March thinking he would be their long-term complement to Chad Ochocinco . It's the second time in two years that the Bengals went after a high-profile free agent receiver, then changed their minds soon after signing him. They got Laveranues Coles to replace T.J. Houshmandzadeh last year, then released him...

"There are a bunch of players on this team who were all too eager to heap as much blame as possible for the Super Bowl loss on Donovan McNabb [above]. A lot of them bought into [Terrell] Owens' slander campaign against the quarterback because it helped cover for their own disappointing performances in that game." Phil Sheridan Philadelphia Inquirer columnist, on the Eagles "I'm not that much more talented than everybody. I'm not that much stronger. Sometimes it has to do with what your head and your heart want."

The Ravens proved that they still have one of the more formidable rush defenses in the NFL, suffocating the Washington Redskins by holding them to 25 yards on 14 carries in the Ravens' 23-3 win Saturday night. Defending the pass, however, might be a different matter. The Ravens surrendered 365 passing yards to the Redskins, and the defensive coverage provided by the linebackers in the middle of the field could be a cause for concern. Five of Washington quarterback Donovan McNabb's 11 completions and 89 of his 206 yards came in the middle of the field.
