1 Run the ball with Errict Rhett and stay with it because quarterback Stoney Case isn't consistent enough yet to win games with his arm.2 Blitz Tony Graziani as much as Browns quarterback Tim Couch was blitzed last week. Graziani, though, can be a threat as a runner.3 Don't play soft in the secondary. The Falcons' receivers are possession types who can be taken out of the offense with press coverage.

Brian Billick insists that no import should be put into the practice rotations on the Ravens' makeshift offensive line. No one buys that spiel faster than Sammy Williams. Williams, whose NFL experience consists of bit parts in three games, will start at right tackle when the Super Bowl champions return to PSINet Stadium tomorrow (7:30 p.m.) for a preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. Billick and the rest of the Ravens' brass like the potential of Williams, who is the future at a position where the top two candidates have a combined 25 years of experience.

Priest Holmes lost his starting job, not his value. He had 99 yards from scrimmage in Sunday's 37-0 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals and turned seven of his 12 touches into first downs. The fourth-year running back is sixth in the AFC in yards from scrimmage (365) and third in the conference in first downs (23). "When you're on a winning team, there are certain players that have to fulfill certain roles," Holmes said. "And I believe my role is definitely important to the team." Holmes was a major reason the Ravens produced 27 first downs in Sunday's romp, two shy of the team record.

NEW ORLEANS -- University of Florida coach Steve Spurrier demoted star tailback Errict Rhett to second string Tuesday because of Rhett's recent penchant for skipping classes.Rhett still had the opportunity to play in last night's Sugar Bowl against Notre Dame at the Superdome, but it's not certain how much. Spurrier said he would give senior Willie McClendon, a former starter who lost the job partly because of fumbling problems, "a good chance" as the starter. That could mean two offensive series or two quarters.

It was the first thought that came to Ted Marchibroda's mind after watching Jay Graham struggle in the Ravens' final preseason game."If this continues in the opener," the coach said to himself, "I'll have to pull the hook out early."Imagine the scene:Graham faltering in the first game at the new stadium. The sellout crowd chanting, "We want Rhett!" The Ravens falling behind 10-0.Well, it's not going to happen -- at least not the first two parts.The entire town knew that Errict Rhett deserved to start at halfback, and Marchibroda finally called the necessary audible yesterday, announcing that the veteran would replace Graham against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

After mulling over the decision for several days, Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda announced yesterday that Errict Rhett will replace Jay Graham as the starting tailback in Sunday's regular-season opener against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers.Marchibroda, who was sticking by Graham as late as Monday, when he twice declared the second-year player from Tennessee was still his starter, ultimately could not pass up Rhett's veteran presence, not to mention his preseason performance.Rhett, who came on board in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February, led the Ravens in rushing yards (203)

After winding up the NFL draft without picking a running back, the Ravens plan to begin filling that void today by signing veteran Steve Broussard to a one-year contract.Broussard, a nine-year veteran who played the past four seasons in Seattle, agreed to terms and was expected to be in Baltimore to take a physical by last night.The Ravens envision Broussard, 5 feet 7, 201 pounds, as a player who can assume dual roles as a third-down back and kickoff returner. While his offensive role has been reduced in recent years, Broussard, 32, remains a force as a return man. He ranked fourth in the NFL with a 26.9-yard kickoff return average on 29 returns last year.

Seeking his second fresh start in as many years with the Ravens, veteran running back Errict Rhett returned to Baltimore yesterday by signing a one-year contract.The addition of Rhett, who joined the team's minicamp immediately, means a renewed competition among Rhett, second-year man Priest Holmes and three-year veteran Jay Graham for the starting tailback job.Rhett, who will earn the league minimum salary of $400,000 plus incentives, said he had drawn interest from New England and Arizona.

The defense has danced. And now it's the offense's turn."We're going to shake it up," Ravens running back Errict Rhett vowed yesterday. "We're going to set it off. We're going to do something that makes the whole crowd get into it. Leave it up to E. Rhett, it's going to be funky, funky, funky."Maybe so, but the defense's post-interception celebration -- the players forming a circle, the interceptor flipping the ball into the air, then everyone collapsing on their backs -- will be difficult to top.Coach Brian Billick didn't like it. Old-school fans winced at it. Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and the rest of the Party Police at the No Fun League probably were appalled.

Defensive end Rob Burnett is well aware of how much the Pittsburgh Steelers are struggling.Burnett knows that the 5-7 Steelers have dropped four in a row and four of five at home. He knows their offense has stumbled so badly that coach Bill Cowher has taken the ball away from quarterback Kordell Stewart and given it to Mike Tomczak. He knows the Ravens, coming off their best performance of the year, should be primed to knock off Pittsburgh for a change.He also has been part of some painful history at Three Rivers Stadium, so Burnett is taking nothing for granted.

Ravens running back Errict Rhett has a lot of respect for Tennessee Titans safeties Blaine Bishop and Marcus Robertson. They get his competitive juices flowing, and his mouth moving.The last time Rhett faced the pair was Oct. 10. The Titans won, 14-11, but Bishop and Robertson lost as Rhett ran over both of them on different occasions, forcing them to leave the game in the second quarter. Both players returned in the third.Now it's time for the rematch Sunday when the Ravens meet the Titans at PSINet Stadium.

CLEVELAND -- Ravens linebacker Peter Boulware was smiling in the post-game locker room, which was quite a contrast from the misery he portrayed on the sideline in the closing minutes of the team's 41-9 rout over the Cleveland Browns yesterday.Boulware spent several minutes writhing on his back in pain, while the team's medical staff worked to correct a recurring problem -- realigning the separated shoulder that has dogged Boulware for more than a year."It pops out almost every game," said Boulware, referring to the right shoulder he protects each week by wearing a special harness, which basically reduces him to a one-armed tackler.

Running back Priest Holmes is set to return tomorrow, although even he is not sure what his role will be. Physically, Holmes said he is in good shape, and it will be up to Ravens coach Brian Billick how much he plays.Holmes injured a knee in the second game of the season against Pittsburgh, then watched Errict Rhett run off three straight 100-yard games and become the NFL's second-leading rusher -- before this past Sunday -- with 409 yards.Now Holmes, who started the first two games and rushed for a total of 54 yards, will back up Rhett against the Kansas City Chiefs.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- It didn't take long for the Ravens' offensive line to assume a familiar, unsettled look yesterday.Left tackle Jonathan Ogden, who left last week's game in Atlanta with a cervical strain in his neck, started against the Titans, but only made it through the team's opening possession.Right tackle Harry Swayne, who left last week's game with a severe, lower leg bruise, was seemingly ready to go after three encouraging days of practice, but he came up lame during pre-game warm-ups.

1 The Ravens' defense must put pressure on Neil O'Donnell and force the Titans' immobile quarterback to move around in the pocket, which limits his effectiveness.2 The Ravens have to establish the run early with AFC rushing leader Errict Rhett because quarter- back Stoney Case can't carry this offense.3 The Titans have had major breakdowns in special teams coverage. This is a good time for punt returner Jermaine Lewis to have a breakout game.
