The Ravens continued their off-season promise to rebuild their defense as they waived starting defensive tackle Dan Footman and reserve outside linebacker Craig Powell yesterday. The team also plans to release reserve defensive tackle Tim Goad shortly.The Ravens have released or not re-signed 15 players from a defense that was ranked last in the NFL last season, allowing 368.1 yards and almost 27 points a game. Eight of those players started games last season.By releasing Footman and Powell, the club will save about $1.7 million in cap money, leaving the Ravens nearly $3.1 million under the league's $41 million salary cap. The team will save an additional $400,000 in salary when it cuts Goad.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The debt still has not been paid.Baltimore may have to wait awhile longer to get its revenge on the city of Indianapolis, as its Colts defeated the Ravens, 26-21, last night before a crowd of 56,978 at the RCA Dome.The Ravens performed well despite losing two starting defensive linemen in the first half, but a 68-yard interception return for a touchdown and a 1-yard run by Marshall Faulk around left end were the two deciding touchdown plays in the second half that determined the Ravens' fate against the Indianapolis Colts, the club that left Baltimore nearly 13 years ago.Defensive tackle Dan Footman had to leave the game with a fractured forearm, and defensive end Rob Burnett was sidelined with a sprained ankle.

Baltimore Ravens defensive end Rob Burnett and cornerback Antonio Langham have found themselves in strange territory lately, but both are starting to cover some common ground with defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis.The Ravens have spent the past four days implementing a new 4-3 defensive scheme, and the players seem to like the freedom that goes along with it.The Ravens will spend the next nine days with a daily one-hour, walk-through practice, and the rest of the time will be used for meetings and weight-training sessions.

Ravens owner Art Modell addressed the team after practice yesterday in what was interpreted as an old-fashioned pep talk.Modell spoke for about five to 10 minutes and easily held the Ravens' attention. The Ravens are 3-9 and have lost seven of their past eight games, including four in a row.The Ravens play host to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, but that was not on Modell's mind."We just talked about football in general," Modell said. "I've been in this business for a long time, going back to Lombardi and Halas.

The way veteran defensive end Rob Burnett sees it, the Ravens' defense simply needs to assume its form of two years ago. In 1994, the Cleveland Browns led the NFL in scoring defense, propelling them to an 11-5 record."

Patte Barham's "Peasant to Palace" (Romar Books) will make you want to sing "Ochi Chernye," kick up your legs in a kazatska and cook blini, kasha, stuffed cabbage and borscht dolloped with sour cream.It's not that these recipes are wonderfully different or exciting; it's the stories behind the recipes. They come from the daughter of Grigori Efimovich Rasputin, the Siberian visionary and healer who rose from humble farmer to adviser to the czar until his assassination during the Russian Revolution.

Jerome Footman is the antithesis of a die-hard marathoner: heavyset and of middle age, with a plodding gait. Yet, tomorrow morning he will be one of about 3,000 entrants running in the Under Armour Baltimore Marathon. Footman has no delusion of victory. Twice, the Reservoir Hill resident has completed the 26.2-mile race, finishing far back. Last year, he chugged in at 6 hours, 38 1/2 minutes - good for 2,152nd place out of 2,174 finishers. Seeing him raise his arms in triumph, you'd have thought he had won. "When I finish the race, I start crying," Footman, 54, said.

No county team ended the regular season hotter than the Meade girls basketball team, and Broadneck coach Bruce Springer is well aware of that. The No. 20 Mustangs, who have won their last five games and 10 of their last 11, have outscored their opponents in those games by an average of 17 points. That run is what concerns Springer as his Bruins squad welcomes Meade for a first-round Class 4A, East regional playoff contest in Annapolis at 5:15 p.m. today. "I know that they've improved greatly over the course of the season," Springer said.

"The Eternal Footman," by James Morrow. Harcourt Brace. 400 pages. $24.For such a buoyant romp, James Morrow's novel "The Eternal Footman" traffics in some weighty subject matter. Much of its charm lies in this incongruity. The death of God and resulting apocalyptic events narrated here provide food for philosophic and theologic speculation. But its wicked comic riffs on modern faith and faithlessness make the book crackle and burn.The novel rounds out a trilogy of books by Pennsylvania writer Morrow tracking the corporeal death of the Supreme Being -- though "Footman" can be read on its own with undiminished enjoyment.

The Ravens lost some of the luster off their inaugural season on the playing field, but the trouble indicators started flashing back in February, when the league approved the Cleveland Browns' move to Baltimore.After that, it all became a hurried process, from naming Ted Marchibroda head coach to selecting a coaching staff. The Ravens never seemed to catch their breath, from forming a permanent seat license campaign to releasing ticket information finding housing for their players.And remember: The Ravens were 5-11 in 1995 as the Cleveland Browns.

James Jones recorded only one tackle in yesterday's 31-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the contributions of the 6-foot-2, 290-pound nose tackle go deeper than the stat sheet.Jones spent most of the day tying up Pittsburgh All-Pro center Dermontti Dawson, and freeing up linebackers like Ray Lewis (eight tackles) and Mike Caldwell (six) to contain Steelers running back Jerome Bettis. After rushing for 57 yards in the opening quarter, Bettis was held to 48 yards the rest of the way.Jones also had to fight through a rough second half, after he suffered an ankle injury during the Steelers' opening possession early in the third quarter.
