He runs as hard as he talks.And that takes some doing for a motor-mouth like Errict Rhett, who tells childhood stories, tosses out self-promotion, and challenges teammates with the same urgency he exudes while charging into an opposing defense to earn a couple of bruising yards.When the Ravens traded with Tampa Bay to acquire Rhett six months ago, they felt they were getting a tailback with a strong record of NFL success, and a player with something to prove.Because of a disastrous contract holdout in 1996 and the arrival of rookie phenom Warrick Dunn last season, Rhett's early promise had become a distant memory to the Buccaneers.

Quarterbacks - C Tony Banks may not be the answer, but he deserves another year in the Ravens' system. There is no guarantee, though, that he'll re-sign with the team because there is still a strained relationship between Banks and coach Brian Billick. Banks played well in the second half of the season and opened up the offense with the long ball. The Ravens still should draft a quarterback in April and add a veteran backup such as Tennessee's Neil O'Donnell, who could start if Banks falters, while still giving the rookie a chance to mature.

Each time he takes a deep breath, Errict Rhett is reminded of his season's most unfortunate moment. It happened early in the second quarter against Tennessee two weeks ago. Just as Rhett hit the ground after being tackled after a 6-yard gain, Titans linebacker Joe Bowden delivered a helmet shot to Rhett's side. Rhett stayed on the ground for several minutes, then staggered off the field with severely bruised ribs. "It felt like somebody shot me in the back with a shotgun," said Rhett, who is still bothered by the injury.

For proof that the Ravens have undergone a major transformation in 1998, look no farther than the offensive backfield.Gone is troubled running back Bam Morris and the one-back set, in favor of a two-back system that stresses ball control, clock management and a pound-it-at-the-defense mentality.And here are the twin engines the Ravens are counting on to make the attack go -- running back Errict Rhett and fullback Roosevelt Potts.Combined with second-year tailback Jay Graham, the Ravens say they have the right combination of size, speed and toughness to give defenses headaches.

Sale Isaia vs. Ben Cavil (LG): The only unsettled starting spot on the offensive line. Cavil has the edge in experience. Isaia is 11 months removed from a knee injury that ended his 1997 season on the first day of training camp. This should be a good battle.Duane Starks vs. DeRon Jenkins (RCB): It's up to Jenkins to produce in his third season. Starks is a rookie, but as the Ravens' top draft pick, he will apply plenty of pressure.Ralph Staten vs. Stevon Moore (SS): The job is Moore's to lose, which could happen if his surgically repaired knees fail to respond this summer.

CINCINNATI -- Justin Armour and Qadry Ismail had been the mainstays in the Ravens' often-sputtering passing game before yesterday. The other guys picked a fine time to show up in yesterday's 34-31 victory over the Bengals. Wide receiver Patrick Johnson resurfaced after an extended absence to have the best game of his career. Wide receiver Billy Davis, whose football life had been reduced primarily to special teams work after joining the Ravens this year, produced the team's biggest play from scrimmage in his best performance of 1999.

Ravens coach Brian Billick jokingly refers to them as "the dirty dozen." He has called them a collection of talent taken off "the trash heap" of the NFL. Billick is talking about his offense, which entered last night's game against Kansas City ranked 24th in the NFL, including the 28th-ranked passing game. Specifically, Billick is talking about players like quarterback Stoney Case, wide receivers Qadry Ismail and Justin Armour, running back Errict Rhett and tight end Aaron Pierce.
