The NFL leaned heavily on the Baltimore Ravens when crafting its newest commercial that promotes its new women's apparel line. The 30-second spot, which premieres tomorrow during the Ravens game against the Denver Broncos on NBC, features coach John Harbaugh and player Ray Rice's jersey. Harbaugh's speech to the Ravens in 2009 serves as the commercial's dramatic voice-over. Rice's jersey is also modeled. "When we listened to those words we thought it was a speech that could transcend to our fans," said Jaime Weston, the NFL's vice president of advertising and creative.

By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent.

That same year, the group made its network television debut on "Late Show with David Letterman.

Ten of the 11 actors - all volunteers, average Joes with day jobs like fixing computers - won't have the benefit of towels, strategically placed props or artful lighting. It's enough to give even the most dedicated of thespians stage fright. "When I heard that I got the part, my first reaction wasn't hesitancy, exactly, but 'Oh no, how am I going to do this?"

The relationship that has persisted for over a decade was in danger of coming to an end. However, the more the Ravens and Terrell Suggs pondered their options this offseason, they kept coming back to the same conclusion. Suggs and the Ravens still needed each other. The Ravens couldn't afford to lose another team leader and defensive standout. Suggs, 31, would have options either way, but none of them appealed to him more than his current situation. The official compromise came Monday in the form of a four-year, $28.5 million contract extension that gave both sides exactly what they wanted and checked off one of the major items on the Ravens' offseason to-do list.
